Oscar

I can't wait for Dasavatharam's release. Since I watched Sivaji first day first show, I am duty bound to watch Dasavatharam on the first day itself. But looks like there are many hurdles as is expected of a Kamal movie. But the one controversy that interests me the most is the one that relates to the name of the producer.

He not only gave himself a new firstname, Oscar (and removed Venu), but also used a symbol that resembles the Oscar trophy, for his movies. If he hadn't used the symbol, he wouldn't have been in trouble. The use of the name and the symbol peeved the actual Oscar people. I am sure Venu Oscar is pretty grouchy now. Last I heard, Oscar Ravichandran changed his name to "Ascar" Ravichandran. Is that true?

yeah...he has now named himself ascar. The last problem they had was with the vaishanava sangh raising some issues with regard to the name and some of the scenes...

Yaarukku venu-m Ascar?

Isn't it a shame that you didn't make it to the preview show of 10A having gone to the FDFS of Jilebi?

Lucky, your doubts gets clarified unlike mine!

Dear Akka,

Ravichandran's Name is AASKAR RAVICHANDRAN.

I SAW DASAVATHARAM IN PREVIEW SHOW HERE IN DUBAI ON 12TH JUNE ONE DAY BEFORE OFFICIAL WORLDWIDE RELEASE

PLZ DO NOT WASTE MONEY IN SEEING DASAVATHARAM.

FIRST 30 MINUTES IS OK THEN HE STARTS JILEBI BUSINESS WITH ASIN.

A GOOD CONCEPT WASTED BY ASIN & KAMAL SCENES

I'D SAY ALAVANDHAN WAS MUCH MORE BETTER THAN THIS ONE.

ANYWAYS I KNOW YOU WILL SEE THE MOVIE, NJOY IF U CAN!!!!!!!!

CHANDRU

Anantha, padam paatthuttiya?
Jillu, SATC?! Whats that?
LKS, nee happy ya irundha seri.:-)
B, I agree too much Kamal can be a deterrent. I wish he had used Crazy for dialogs. But the loyal kamal fan in me is still urging me to watch it in the theater.
Akilan, I think so.
Oracle, romba Sun TV paattha this is what happens to your commenting style.:-)
Lavu, ooru vittu ooru poi pakka poriya? Engayo poitta! (literally)
Jillu, it takes a while to get into the rythm.:-)
Inder, you could be proved right.
MT, hows life now?
Rajesh, did you like it?
Chandru, thats why I haven't watched Aalavandhan yet.
Spot, Nice idea. Visited your site just now.
Thanks Sudhakar. And in your site, andha scrolling style a maatthina nalla irukkum.
