Tamil Padam

is a laugh riot- Go watch it.
But with someone who is a tamil movie buff if you do not spea tamil.
The husband was nice enough to get a dvd home and pause and explain the context.
It is a total spoof of an aggregate of Tamil movies but can apply to Hindi movies too!
- when the kid says - grandma when will I grow up- she advices him to ride a cycle and he will grow up
-how the hero does not die when shot in the head- because he is wearing bulletproof jacket! (too much)
-how the hero traces his lost family- by singing the family song which incidentally the parents are also singing
It is funny even for people who don't understand the context but a total riot for people who catch the context in time!
I am still laughing FYI!

This movie was so much fun that it brings a smile on my face everytime I think about it. Oh mahazeeya song which is a mish mash of all words from songs put together is so much fun to watch. My kids love it.

Come on, the Tam movies are not so bad! Yes, a lot of them are and its good to prepare the audience if they haven't had a chance to watch one before but I think today's Tamil movies are far more realistic and advanced in terms of technology and cinematography techniques than any other film industry.
