Vijay playes the role of an auto driver in the movie. His role reminds us of superstar Rajinikanth, who played the role of an auto driver in the hit Baasha. Actress Anuskha, Arundhati fame, plays the role of a medical college student. Vettaikaran’s story is based in unwanted elements that needs to be removed from the society and the country. Who other than Vijay can fit in such a role? One by one he removes all those unwanted elements. Meanwhile he falls in love with Anushka, who comes from a middle class family. Both share a great chemistry, whether it’s fighting or romancing. Initially both fight every now and then, but finally they fall in love. Expectations are high and people are hoping that Illayathalapathy’ Vijay lives up to their expectations.The movie is directed by Babu Sivan and produced by M.Balasubramaniam, B.Gurunath Meiyappan. Vijay Anthony has taken care of the music for the movie.

flow of d movie with awesome editing, vijay has tried acting after longtime, hero doesnt show off with many punch dialogues and dats y d mass kept in fight sequences worked well with silent vijay turning into fire !……i would rate babu sivan a step above heroine anushka….this guy has worked really hard, to make vijay win atlast !….director has given of all wat he can deliver as a debutant….the best part is, chemistry between director, hero and other artists in the movie has worked well ….. song sequences were kept in the best moments , such dat screenplay doesnt gets disturbed ….music director is another positive for dis movie…..
IMO….when babu sivan’s name was displayed, der was a BGM thalapathy thalapathy, dat was awesome work by vijay antony…

i dont know, y d hell they gave intro song to shobi master …..he has made a shitty crap out !……
villain role was not powerful to equal vijay !….villain pesardhukku badhilaa nariya yeppam vidraaru bow bow nu !….vijay should improve his acting skills when it comes to sentiments …..example is d cliamx, when he delivers dialogue to devaraj IPS about police profession, i was really waiting about when he is gonna finish it !!….it happened even in some scenes in middle !…vijay humour ah dialogue sonnaa work out aavudhu…avarukku serious dialogue or advice panna theriyala, he should improve dat, else he should drop dose scenes in upcoming movies !!

Ameer is a slum-dweller who graduates from petty crimes to murder for better revenues. During one of his assignments, he makes way with a car and inadvertently bestowed with the ownership of a child. The child’s mother gets hurt in an accident after the car stealing and the reluctant Ameer is left with the custody of the toddler. It takes no time for him to abandon the kid in one of the street corners, but he holds himself back and brings the kid home for he had never forgiven himself for the loss of a life in a similar manner earlier in his life.
Ameer gets into the skin of a petty goon who gradually becomes a criminal, accidentally owning a baby. The razor sharp dialogues in his coarse voice accentuate his performance and the way he carries a repulsive past with him can be quite depressing for the viewer. His father character, played by journalist Devarajan, is impeccable. He metes out domestic violence at his wife, unapologetic about the death of his little daughter and uses his wife’s dead body to make money. Quite disconcerting and it doesn’t feel that Devarajan is a newcomer.

Another revelation in the movie is (actually there are two, another being Snehan who effortlessly portrays a mean thug) Madhumitha, playing the role of a single mother whose husband walks out on her. Her eyes speak volumes than actually her words and when she is forced to breast-feed the baby of a stranger, she becomes the epitome of motherhood. A picture of whatever little love is left in the world.Yogi is definitely not a time pass movie, it can be distressing. On the other hand, if you are looking for a heavy duty movie with some brilliant performances, try it. It wouldn’t hurt to see the darker side of human life once in a while. It tells you the tryst of happiness with life’s strange play of fate, when hope gets crushed.

Renigunta tells the story of 5 young men who are at large after having escaped from prison. They land up in Renigunta after their journey to Mumbai goes awry midway. They stay on as they find Renigunta a fertile ground for their activities which mainly consist of carrying out murders as per order. They are ruthless assassins who will kill anyone for a fee, it seems. But, how did they turn out to be the criminals that they are? That is where Renigunta can make people do some soul searching. The process of creating a criminal out of a very normal youngster is masterminded by the society; first by preferring to keep quiet when he needs help and then by hurriedly branding him as a criminal the moment he tries to raise a voice for himself. The process of a criminal’s evolution is told through the life of newcomer Johnny who is the son of a law abiding dutiful police officer who gets involved in a pretty dangerous case. Johnny’s dad’s conscientiousness costs him his life as well as his wife’s. Only Johnny is left alone. No one comes to his help, no one fights for justice and the frustrated and angry young man tries to wreak revenge. But, too small and too weak for the evil forces, he is branded as a criminal and put behind bars. Again, neither the law nor the society turns to help him. Labeled as a criminal and facing torture in jail, he finds refuge in a band of four young men who have already turned the corner and accepted lives on the wrong side of the law. The quintet sets off on the journey that takes them to Renigunta.The director (Paneerselvam) has delivered what he set out to give. He has not diluted the theme or deviated from it for commercial considerations. The amount of violence seems to be justified by the script; one cannot point out a place where it seems forced. Having said that, the A certificate is completely justified and the movie is certainly not for very young people or those who are looking for regular entertainers. It is dark and grim most of the time. Scenes are gory and at times can leave even men accustomed to such movies with a grimace.Technically the movie is adequate. Camerawork suits the mood of the movie for most parts while music does not find too much of a place in spite of a few songs in the film. Dialogues by Singampuli are definitely praiseworthy.

India won the test match today by an innings and144 runs against Srilanka. India records its 100 th test match win. Also India now moves to no:1 spot in world test cricket. India achieved their biggest victory against Sri Lanka and in the process clinched their 100th Test win on the fourth day of the second Test in Kanpur. India's previous best against their neighbors was a victory by an innings and 119 runs in 1994 and they bettered that record with ease today. Thilan Samaraweera hit an assured fifty to provide some resistance but it was always going to be just a matter of time before India wrapped up the game.The only question at the start of the day was how long Sri Lanka will delay the inevitable and though they looked to be positive, adding 149 runs in the first session, India kept picking up wickets at regular intervals. Samaraweera was involved in two fighting partnerships with Prasanna Jayawardene and Ajantha Mendis, which not only proved that the pitch wasn't bad but also showed the top order in poor light.
Samaraweera proceeded to stitch together a 61-run partnership with Prasanna who, much like in the first innings, flattered to deceive. He was looking good with his cuts and sweeps but was cleaned up by a fine off break from round the stumps from Harbhajan Singh. It drifted away and broke back in but Prasanna left a big bat-pad gap and was bowled. Muttiah Muralitharan indulged himself with a typical hit-and-giggle knock filled with slog sweeps but fell, going for yet another big hit.
Samaraweera, who then added 73 runs with a determined Ajantha Mendis to frustrate India, was rarely troubled during his stay, the highlight of which was a whippy on-drive to a delivery on off and middle stump line from Sreesanth. He has had a stellar 2009 and he played yet another pleasing knock. He rarely looked hurried, tackled the spinners and seamers well and unfurled many pleasing on drives. The caravan now moves to Mumbai for the third Test that starts on December 2.

"I first met him at the Mumbai airport when he returned from his first tour of England in 1990, after scoring his maiden Test ton. In fact, when I first saw him at the airport, I didn't even know who he was. It was purely by accident!" Anjali, who married Tendulkar in 1995, said. "I was there to pick up my mother and Sachin was arriving with the Indian team. That's where we saw each other for the first time... we had a courtship of five years and got married in 1995. We had got engaged a year before that in 1994 and that was in New Zealand," she said in a published interview."I think what he liked about me was that I knew nothing about cricket when I first met him. But then, me being me, I read everything about the game. I came to know all the fielding positions but he doesn't like me discussing cricket at home. But at times when he is low or upset, I do talk to him about cricket. Again, it's not the game but things related to it that we discuss," she said.

On whether Tendulkar's fame had come in the way of getting the simple pleasures like a movie, Anjali recalled how the batting great had to come in disguise to watch a movie during their courtship."... We had gone to see the movie Roja. I was studying medicine then and a couple of my friends planned. Sachin did try telling me that it would be difficult but I insisted that he come along. To make sure nobody recognised him, we even got him a beard. He wore specs as well and we went in late. We watched the first half of the film, but during the interval, Sachin dropped his specs and people immediately recognised him. It was a bit of disaster and we were forced to leave halfway," she told a newspaper in an interview. Anjali gave up her promising medical career to be Tendulkar's "biggest support" and after 14 years of marriage, she doesn't regret her decision one bit. "Though I loved every moment of my studying days and my days at the government hospital, it then came to a stage when I realised that I could not be married to Sachin and also have a full-time career. It wasn't possible because he depends on me for almost everything. It was my decision. I thought I should be at home with him and make everything perfect for him," she recalled.

"In his childhood, brother Ajit did everything for Sachin, sacrificing his own interests. I thought I should do the same. Besides, mine would not have been a 9 to 5 job. I'm a paediatrician, so if there's a patient calling me or someone admitted at odd hours, I have to make myself available", she said. "With Sachin not around and me with two kids at home, it wouldn't have been possible. I took a decision and I have never, ever regretted it," Anjali said. Tendulkar completes 20 years of international cricket on Sunday and Anjali said she still can't stop herself from getting tensed when he comes out to bat, so much so that she doesn't even get up to take a phone call when he is at the crease. "Actually, I have one particular spot in the house from where I can watch TV and also keep an eye on my Ganpati (Ganesha). I don't eat. I don't answer phones. I don't drink. I don't even move. I don't reply to any sms until he's out," she said.

Nineteen years of knowing the cricketer India worships, Anjali said she has learnt to deal with the pulls and pressures that come with being his better half. "For me, it's very easy because I've known Sachin for 19 years now. I understand him so well. So whether I am his girlfriend or his wife, it's the same thing, just an extension of that bond. I don't find it very difficult and I'm used to it. "Maybe, it's also because I've not known any other person in my life except Sachin. Of course, there are many challenges and difficulties to being his wife but the whole family, including my children, has learnt to deal with it," she said. But Anjali wishes that Tendulkar doesn't have to spend so much time away from his home and two young children.

Batting maestro Sachin Tendulkar rated his 175 against Australia here Thursday as one of the best knocks of his career. Tendulkar scored 175 off 141 ball, enroute to his record 17,168 runs, but couldn't prevent India from losing the fifth ODI to Australia by three runs. 'I thought we started off really well then lost wickets. Suresh (Raina) and I had a good partnership but in the end, it was disappointing. The pressure to keep scoring runs was there and we took it very close. But I feel it was one of my best knocks,' said Tendulkar, who was adjudged as the Man of the Match. The batting maestro praised Raina for playing a strokefilled run-a-ball that got India close while chasing 351 to win. On his personal milestone of crossing 17,000 runs, Tendulkar said: 'I care about playing for India, it's a passion and I have been absoloutely honoured to play for India so long.'
Australian captain Ricky Ponting also applauded Tendulkar for playing one of the best knocks in his 20-year-old career. 'It was one of the amazing games and certainly one of the best innings ever from Sachin. Sachin didn't play many bad shots today!

Former Pakistan captain Javed Miandad today lavished praise on batting great Sachin Tendulkar and said the young cricketers in the sub-continent should follow his example if they are serious about carving out a career in cricket.Miandad was all praise for the Tendulkar, who completed 17,000 ODI runs in the fifth one-day international against Australia at Hyderabad today."I think the way Tendulkar has handled his career and lasted for so long, keeping his passion for runs alive, is a lesson for budding young cricketers in Pakistan and India," Miandad said."Youngsters should adopt Tendulkar as their role model if they want to progress in the sport," he added.Miandad said he admired the way Tendulkar had kept his hunger alive for runs despite having such a long career.

Jaganmohini is the remake of veteran Vittalacharya’s horror-comedy of the same name. Remaking cult classics isn’t really a bad idea, but what made the original Jaganmohini tick was its imaginative plot premise and the visual effects, done with very modest technical advancements available during the seventies. The latest version that has Namitha in the quintessential-ghost-with-an-unrequited-love role, however, lacks the required finesse to hold your attention and with a choppy screenplay the movie ends up more comic than horror. That’s not to mention, we also have Vadivelu in the cast with less than desired results. The story, as we all know, feels like it’s taken straight out of the Amar Chitra Katha series. Namitha gets murdered for having fallen in love with a prince. Despite her death, she seeks the love of her life, the prince, Raja. However, the prince also has a suitable bride, Nila, within the family. To win Raja over, Namitha also must fight an evil sorcerer, Kota Srinivasa Rao, who sets out to capture the prince for his human-sacrifice that will bestow colossal powers upon him. That is Jaganmohini’s plot in a nutshell. There’s also the wicked prince from the neighboring state Riyaz Khan, his father Bala Singh and Vadivelu, who plays Namitha’s brother.

If not anything, the plot has immense scope to amuse kids, but falls short with only a few visual effect scenes promising to hold attention – like the one in which Namitha attacks the village after taking a water form. Namitha’s fans might enjoy her in a full-fledged role where she gets to rule the screen for the major part of the movie. With her enormous frame, she does a neat job of a ghost – no pun intended, of course. The climax would have suited the seventies, but since we have evolved so much over the past 30 something years, it looks and feels so preposterous. It’s even doubtful that your kid might like that kind of lame climax. The N. K. Vishwanathan directed Jaganmohini is neither spooky nor amusing. Even if you are a die-hard Namitha fan, don’t be surprised if you become incensed towards the end of the movie, for she’s all over it.

This bike is powered by the same Air Cooled 153cc 2 Valve refined mill from the FZ series which produces a peak power output of 14 Ps at 7500 rpm and a peak torque output of 14 Nm which comes at an early 6000 rpm. The engine feels stress free even after continuous journeys and performs at its best under long rides.Fazer series the world over are known for their touring capabilities and this bike is just the smallest DNA of the same. With the inclusion of a beautifully crafted dual tone aerodynamic front quarter fairing, which can easily be called as the best front fairing in India currently, this bike sure grabs a lot of attention and has loads of road presence. The cowl and the visor is wind tunnel tested which protects the rider from heavy wind blasts and also makes sure that the bike is well planted even on those windy days especially on long open highways.The bike sports fiery looking twin headlamps of 35 Watt each and a well placed pilot cum parking lamp in between. A noted flaw (an intended one) is that only one light can be illuminated at a time, left for dipper and right one for upper, quite contrary to even the YZF R15, on which both headlamps are on when on upper.

The bike has a more relaxed seating posture thanks to a little lifted handlebar which prevents fatigue and aids to the comfort for the backbone making it more comfortable for highway riding. The bike also carries the mid-ship muffler of the FZ series which concentrates weight close to the center of gravity for enhancing the control of the bike on high speed cruising. Paint job is top notch and the fit and finish exuberates typical Yamaha quality.The bike comes loaded with India’s fattest and grippiest rear MRF radial tyre (140/60-17) mated with a 100/80-17 for the front for acute cornering and solid grip on any type of tarmac.The bike is also loaded with a 7 step adjustable Monocross suspension of the FZ series which aids to the stability of the bike in a huge way and makes the bike a potent and stable performer. Yamaha has done away with the two tone seat cover for the Fazer. The bike now sports a carbon pattern all black seating skin and the seating is cushioned adequately to give one of the better and comfortable long rides.

The bike also gets the All Digital speedo console which Yamaha calls as Full Liquid Crystal Display which has a tachometer, speedometer, apart from the regular tripmeter and indicator lights. The yellow backlit display looks awesome especially during nights with and with the visor hindering direct sunlight; it is also sufficiently visible during daylight.Remember, it’s the looks that deceive; otherwise, if you look at it as a 150 cc engine, the power is adequate and does its job well. The lack of power is more evident because of an increase of 4 kilograms which make the bike a 141 kg monster. All this comes at a price tag of an expensive Rs. 80,741 on road Chennai. The bike would be available in four color options – Electric Blue, Midnight Black, Lava Red and Flaming orange. Black easily stands out of all the color options and the bike is a treat to watch in full black clothes.

Storks are very large birds with long, slender necks and legs. The Jabiru has a broad black stripe on its wings, head, neck and tail. The rest of the plumage is white. The legs are pale red and their black bill is long and pointed. The eye colour of females and males is different. Males are brown-eyed and females are yellow-eyed. Black-necked Storks are carnivores and eat fish, frogs, large crustaceans and insects. Jabirus use their bills like swords to impale or snatch prey from the water.

When looking for a mate, the male constructs a nest to try to attract a female. Breeding pairs stay together for a number of years, sometimes even for life. When the young hatch, they are naked and helpless and are taken care of by both parents for several weeks. Habitat destruction through the filling in of wetlands and swamps is a threat to the Black-necked Stork population.The Australian Wetlands is home to a wide-range of water birds. You can see the Jabiru and many other birds in this naturalistic setting.These storks are found in northern and eastern australia.

In simple words, ‘Unnai Pol Oruvan’ can be regarded as ‘Better than the best’. It’s because, the remake version seems to be much stupendous than the original ‘A Wednesday’. Of course, the biggest highlighting feature is that Kamal Haasan hasn’t let any changes to the script including the film’s duration (that exactly goes with 100mins). Fine! Let’s not get ourselves dragged with the analysis and you can just take a glimpse over the story… ‘Unnai Pol Oruvan’ is a story that revolves around a calamitous day where the entire city is shook with a single call from that starts off the thriller drama. A stranger over the top of under-construction building’s terrace makes a call to city commissioner (Mohan Lal) stating that he has planted bombs at various parts of the city. Nothing seems to be a serious issue for commissioner as he presumes it to be a crank call. But things start rolling ahead topsy-turvily when the stranger reasserts about his powerfulness by ensuring that he has placed 3kgs of RDX bomb at a police station.

Now, it’s up to city commissioner for settling down the backbreaking task. Well, the stranger wants to release 4 most wanted terrorists held as prisoners by the government or else he would blast the entire city. Since, it’s too difficult to go around the city and detonate the bombs, the police department has to go flexible over the stranger’s offer. But when the terrorists are released, there’s something more shocking for the cops and as well the audiences. Firstly, when it comes to analyzing the performance, everyone in the screens have excelled with top-notching performance. Hats off to Kamal Haasan! Unlike his previous films, where he delineates himself in prominent role overshadowing others, he has likely delivered an unparalleled endeavor. Mohan Lal is ‘wordlessly stupendous’ and he keeps you engrossing all throughout the show. As a matter of fact, he has got more importance than Kamal Haasan, who sweeps us off on our senses in climax portion. Be it Anuja Iyer as a journalist or a frustrated cop Ganesh Venkatram: they’ve just lived under the skin of characterizations.

I would like to appreciate Mr. Kamal Haasan having made a mind-boggling statement in climax portions. As a media professional, I had just felt disappointed when most of the Tamil TV Channels failed to showcase the depth of 26/10 attack in Mumbai. Precisely, when he mentioned the same part, I could just reflect myself over the screens. And that’s the victory of this film as everyone, each and every audiences seated before the screens would doubtlessly reflect themselves as well whose hearts are brimmed with millions of unanswered questions in the society. Indeed, Kamal Haasan brings his real life experience of his name missing in ‘voting list’ as he claims him as an invisible man. Shruthi Haasan fails to deliver better background score while the cinematography is best. Dialogues are so touching as they keep winning applauses on each and every line. When it comes to Chakri, there’s nothing much to appreciate him as he has just copycatted the exact version. Excuse us Chakri! We would surely welcome you with best verdicts from your next film if it isn’t a remake. Possibly, we have analyzed ‘Unnai Pol Oruvan’ in both technical and narrative aspects. But then, how about the film’s business at box office? It’s not at all a big issue. With a long Ramzan weekend for next 4 days, both Kamal Haasan and UTV Motion Pictures are sure to fill their sacs with the profit money more than they could’ve expected.

The Dhyanalinga Multi - Religious Temple situated at Vellingiri foothills about 30kms from Coimbatore is very much a part of this glorious tradition. Dhyanalinga was consecrated by Sadhguru Jaggi, Vasudev, a realized Master, Mystic and Yogi, after three years of intense process of prana prathista. Measuring 13' 9'', Dhyanalingam is the largest mercury based live Linga in the world. It does not require minutes within the sphere of Dhyanalinga is enough to make even those unaware of meditation to experience a state of deep meditativeness and feel the divine energy that overflows from this glorious form. The free spanning dome that enshrines the Dhyanalingam measures 77' in diameter and is the largest of its kind in the world. This divine instrument radiates seven different qualities on seven different days of the week by which one can derive various benefits.

Set amidst the dense forests at the foothills of the Velliangiri Mountains, is the Dhyanalinga Yogic Temple, the first of its kind to be completed in over 2000 years. Created by a profound mystic and yogi, it embodies the distilled essence of yogic science. This powerful meditative space does not ascribe to any particular faith or belief system nor does it require any ritual, prayer, or worship. "Just sitting silently for a few minutes within the sphere of Dhyanalinga is enough to make even those unaware of meditation experience a state of deep meditativeness" - Sadhguru. Experience the pleasant feeling guys!!!!

Classmates, the Malayalam blockbuster comes to Tamil as Ninaithale Inikkum directed by debutant G N R Kumaravelan, son of the legendary director G N Rangarajan. Adhering to the original format mostly, Kumaravelan has done a decent job in this Gemini Film Circuit production venture. Prithviraj (who featured in the original version as well), Sakthi Vasu, Priya Mani and Anuja Iyer (Sivi fame) are one set of friends in a college while Karthik Kumar and Lollu Sabha Jeeva are in the rival gang. Prithviraj meets Priya Mani on the first day of college and it is love at first sight for him but he never divulges his love to her. Karthik, on the other hand is a rich brat, interested in a girl but when his feelings are not reciprocated, he forces the girl to love him. Prithvi intervenes in favor of the girl that sets the ball rolling for bitter acrimony between the men. Meanwhile Prithvi’s popularity graph soars in the college, thanks to his pro-student activities which irk Karthik who is on the look out for a suitable opportunity to bring Prithvi down. Further interesting events mark the rest of the film wherein there are some surprise twists in the love angle revealed only in the denouement.

Prithvi scores in his performance and proves he is after all an experienced artist. Ninaithale Inikkum will be a significant milestone in his film career. Among the other members, Karthik dazzles. He has exploited the given minimal situations to his credit and heaps applause. Testimony of his Evam experience indeed! Priya Mani takes some time to thaw and becomes normal in the second half. Sakthi understands his role and delivers. K Bhagyaraj as Sakthi’s dad is apt. Screen play has been dealt with a touch of maturity. Balasubramanian gets plaudits for his beautiful work with the camera. Vijay Antony’s music is appreciable especially in the ‘Azhagai Poothade’ number. In many places he has let silence speak which is praiseworthy. In some way or the other audience is bound to relate to the film especially the college days. The director who chose to convey sorrow intensely could have extended similar treatment to happiness also which would have hastened the first half.

India plays its first match against New Zealand in the tri series, tomorrow in srilanka. India will rock as Master batsman Sachin Tendulkar makes his comeback in the tournament. Coach Gary Kirsten has urged his players to focus on becoming the top one-day side, which they can do by winning every match in the one-day tri-series in Sri Lanka. New Zealand and hosts Sri Lanka are the other teams in the event ending on Monday, a warm-up ahead of the ICC Champions Trophy starting in Kirsten's native South Africa on Sept. 22. "We've set our goals for the next eight months on what we want to achieve but one of them is to become the best cricket team in the world," he said before the team's departure on Wednesday. "We are headed that way and we are very excited."

Second-ranked India can overtake South Africa, one rating point ahead, if they win all the games in Sri Lanka.
However, India will be without explosive opener Virender Sehwag and bowling spearhead Zaheer Khan. Both are recovering after shoulder surgery and will be sidelined until after the Champions Trophy. India, as holders, were knocked out in the first round of the Twenty20 World Cup in England, although they won a low key one-day series against hosts West Indies before taking a break. Their main worry is finding the ideal opening partner for Gautam Gambhir. "We are not sure about the combination," Kirsten said. "But obviously, missing Sehwag is huge, he is a high quality player." He welcomed back Rahul Dravid, the 36-year-old batsman who last played a one-dayer in October 2007 but has been recalled for the Champions Trophy after young team mates fell to short-pitched bowling at the Twenty20 World Cup.


Indian bowler Harbhajan Singh spun into fresh controversy on Wednesday after angrily punching a hand-held television camera after the cameraman brushed against him while filming. Indian television channels showed 29-year-old Harbhajan, the central figure in two on-pitch rows in the last two years, hit the camera after the Camera man pushed forward while the player was retrieving luggage from a car at Bangalore airport. India's second most successful bowler has often come under the spotlight for the wrong reasons.

Last year he was initially found guilty of racially abusing Australian all rounder Andrew Symonds before the charge was downgraded on appeal to using abusive language. A few months later he was suspended for slapping bowler Shanthakumaran Sreesanth during a domestic Twenty20 league match. There was no comment from the cricket board or Harbhajan, who was on his way to Sri Lanka for a one-day series. The camers edge was hooding bhajji and so in anger he punched the camera man. This is Quite natural and every individual aill respond in the same way as bhajji did.

More than 80 people across Andhra Pradesh have died of shock or committed suicide after the death of their chief minister Y S Rajasekhara Reddy, prompting his MP son Y S Jagannathan Reddy to appeal to his late father's admirers to be patient and brave. "I appeal to all of you to be patient and be brave in this hour of tragedy. He (YSR) wanted to see a smile on the faces of all and if you resort to such things (suicide) this will hurt him," said Jaganmohan, trying to hard to control his tears. "I request you not to commit suicide," said Jaganmohan, who was elected to Lok Sabha from Kadapa in recent elections and is being seen by many as the next chief minister.

The appeal before the camera was telecast on all Telugu television channels. Telugu television channels estimated that 77 people died of shock on hearing the news of their leader's death in a horrific air crash Thursday or committed suicide, unable to bear the loss. Most of those who died of shock were watching news of YSR's death on television. This is the first time in the state's history that such a large number of people have died over the death of any political leader.
YSR, as the late leader was popularly known, has surpassed in death the popularity of actor and Telugu Desam Party (TDP) founder N.T. Rama Rao who died in 1996.

A large number of those who died of shock included young supporters of YSR and the beneficiaries of the various welfare schemes launched by him in the last five years. They suffered a cardiac arrest following the news of the chief minister's death in the helicopter crash. The deaths were reported from 19 out of 23 districts in the state. In the coastal district of West Godavari, six people died of shock and four committed suicide. "YSR dedicated his life to people, I am dedicating my life to him," a youth wrote in his suicide note before consuming pesticide. A physically handicapped couple, who were getting monthly pension under a welfare scheme, attempted suicide by jumping into the Godavari river but were saved by fishermen. In Hyderabad, 42-year-old Yadgiri died of shock while watching news of YSR's death on television. M Srinivas, 30, suffered cardiac arrest.

The helicopter carrying YSR Reddy, two of his staff and two pilots went missing in pouring rain Wednesday morning over the Naxal and tiger-infested Nalamalla forests. Five bodies were been found at the site where Andhra Pradesh chief minister YSR Reddy chopper’s wreckage has been traced.

The government on Thursday confirmed that Nearly 24 hours after YSR's chopper went missing, it was located atop Serai Salem hill, at a distance 40 nautical miles (70 kms) east of Kurnool. The CM left Hyderabad on a six-seater Bell chopper at 8.35am for Chittoor accompanied by his secretary and chief security officer. After 9.27am, radio contact was lost with the helicopter. Soon after the chopper lost contact, multiple agencies of the state launched a massive hunt for possible wreckage in the desolate terrain. By evening, it expanded into the country's biggest-ever search operation with satellites in the sky joining remote sensing aircraft, fighter jets, unmanned aerial vehicles, troops on the ground and even barefoot deer-hunting tribals with bows and arrows.


AP CM Y S Rajasekhara reddy's chopper found today, 24 hours after it went missing, the helicopter carrying Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister Y S Rajasekhara Reddy was today located on Rudrakonda hill, 40 nautical miles east of here, but there was no word on his condition. "As of now we have located the helicopter. It is on top of a hill at a distance 40 nautical miles (70 kms) east of Kurnool. Our helicopters are there. We are trying to locate whether there are any survivors," Air Commodore Sagar Bharti of the Bangalore air command told reporters here. "We are not sure if it has crashed or not.

We are sure we have located the helicopter," he said. The signal code of the helicopter is 15471479. Two helicopters were hovering over the area where the helicopter has been located and was looking for a spot to land. Union Home Secretary G K Pillai told PTI in Delhi that it seems the helicopter has crash landed but there is no confirmation. He said the Air Force was attempting to drop para commandos to the spot through ropes to look for survivors. The 11-year-old Bell 430 helicopter carrying besides Reddy, his special secretary Subramaniam, Chief Secretary A S C Wesley, pilot Group Captain S K Bhatia and co-pilot M S Reddy lost radio contact one hour after it took off the from the old Begumpet Airport in Hyderabad at 0835 hrs yesterday.

"They (people on board the chopper) were carrying about five cell phones and so whenever a cell phone passes through a tower it will register and with best help from BSNL, we will identify the area," Chavan, who along with Union Law Minister Veerappa Moily rushed here last night, said. "We are sparing no efforts whatsoever. We have deployed everything what we have got, Airforce, state police, air-surveillance, satellite imagery and remote-sensing aircraft have been taking photos. Everything has been put into service," Chavan said. "It is that area where the last contact with Air Traffic Control was made and also contact with a BSNL mobile tower was made," he said. Chavan said the photos were not visible clearly and he expects to get clear information in the morning.

Chief secretary ramakant reddy said that the operations have been marred by inclement weather and rainfall which was expected to continue for the next 48 hours. He also revealed that the US Defence Department had been approached through the Central government for its satellite support.

Andhra pradesh chief minister Y S Rajasekhara reddy is missing from the morning along with his chopper(helicopter). A helicopter carrying Andhra Pradesh chief minister Y. S. Rajasekhara Reddy was on Wednesday missing an hour after it took off from old Begumpet airport at 8.35am, raising fears about his safety. Chief minister’s principal secretary S. Subramanyam and chief security officer A. S. C. Wesley and two pilots were also on board the twin-engined government helicopter that lost contact at 9.35am when it was headed for Chitoor district, over 600kms from here.

At least four helicopters, including three belonging to the Air Force, have been pressed into search operations but no contact has been established. There is no information of the Bell 430 helicopter, having landed anywhere, finance minister K. Rosaiah told a press conference here. While he expressed hope that the chief minister could be safe, state chief secretary P. Ramakanth Reddy said it could be possible that the helicopter could have landed in an unfamiliar area from where getting out could be difficult. “So far we have not been able to make any contact. It is possible because of strong winds and inclement weather, it may have landed in an unfamiliar area from where getting out can be difficult. Time we have before sunset is limited and it is raining heavily,” he said.

Due to bad mobile connectivity and the area being heavily forested, officials have so far failed to make any contact with the Chief Minister sending security agencies into a tizzy.Even though the area is not Naxal-affected but there is panic as the officials have not been unable to contact Reddy. Bad weather is also hampering the rescue mission. The Defence Ministry has also deployed an unmanned aerial vehicle for tracking the Chief Minister. Andhra Pradesh has also asked the Centre for all-weather helicopters for search operations during the night. Meanwhile, in a startling revelation a Director General of Civil Aviation report has claimed that Reddy's Bell 430 helicopter was not air worthy.

Andhra Pradesh Finance Minister K Rosaiah said that there has been no information of the Bell 430 helicopter having landed anywhere while addressing a press conference in Hyderabad. While he expressed hope that the Chief Minister could be safe, state Chief Secretary P Ramakanth Reddy said it could be possible that the helicopter could have landed in an unfamiliar area from where getting out could be difficult. The IAF has, meanwhile, pressed into service four helicopters to search for the missing chopper.

Two chetaks, one MI8 chopper and a Dhruv advanced light helicopter have taken off from Bengaluru to trace the chief minister’s chopper, said a spokesman of the Indian Air Force. "There has been no contact established with the helicopter," sources in the ministry said.They said the situation was being monitored by Home Minister P Chidambaram and top officials who are in touch with Andhra Pradesh government officials. CM and others are expected to have landed at the jungle areas in kurnool


A source close to the Endhiran stable revealed that although 85% of the movie is wrapped up except for a few scenes, the major chunk of the task, the post-production work is expected to extend for a year. Made at a whopping budget, Endhiran’s graphics and visual effects are the highlights and will go on for about a year before the movie is ready to embellish the movie screens.

Rajinikanth’s elder brother Sathyanarayana Rao on sunday said that the Superstar would make an announcement about his political plans after the release of his forthcoming film Endhiran.Speaking to reporters in Tiruchy, where he attended a function organised by Rajini fan clubs to release the CD on the Superstar titled Makkal Manam Kavarndha Mannan, Sathyanarayana said, "At present Rajini’s full concentration is now on Endhiran. He has been working hard for the movie. He would make a decision about his political entry after the completion of the film." Stating that he was not in Tiruchy to hold any consultation but to attend a function organised by fan clubs, the superstar’s elder brother said the matinee idol would make a 'right decision' and announce it at a right time. News from the Shankar-directed The Robot /Endhiran camp is that Prabhu Deva is choreographing a dance sequence involving Rajinikanth. It is said that special plans have been made to make the song a unique one.

The buzz we hear from the Endhiran team is that this song will be shot in the blue mat format. What is so special about the blue mat format is that it has the ability to show 100 Rajinis in a single shot. Endhiran is a mega budget film that has super star Rajinikanth and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan in the lead. It is directed by Shankar and music is by the Oscar winner AR Rahman.

Recently Superstar praised lyricist Vairamuthu for his catchy and meaningful lyrics written for Endhiran. No doubt, Vairamuthu is truly a magician of lyrics. Particularly for Rajinikanth, he has delivered some of the best lyrics in his career.Recently Vairamuthu impressed our superstar Rajinikanth. Vairamuthu has penned the lyrics for a few songs in Rajni’s Endhiran. Endhiran, meaning Robot, tells the story of a man who invents a robot. To suit the situation, Vairamuthu had written that as the robot is invented by a man, it has ‘father tongue’ and not ‘mother tongue’. Rajnikanth was bowled over by this and wondered at Vairamuthu’s intelligence. A humble Vairamuthu said that both the director Shankar and the superstar appreciated this line.

"The mantra to success is hard work mixed with smartness and intelligence", says Tamil superstar Rajnikanth. Speaking Sunday at the audio release of “Eeram”, produced by Shankar’s ‘S’ Pictures and directed by newcomer Arivazagan, Rajnikanth said: “Shankar is an example of hard work, coupled with smartness and efficiency.”

Usain bolt proved himself as the fastest man on the Earth. He holds the record in 100 and 200 mts. Gritting his teeth and pointing to the clock as soon as the record flashed, Bolt is now 5-for-5 in major sprint events, winning gold each time with a world record.Usain Bolt extended his stunning domination in the sprints Thursday, adding the 200-meter gold to his tally at the world championships with yet another world record. His time of 19.19 slashed .11 seconds off the mark he set last year at the Beijing Olympics and came four days after breaking his 100 record by the same margin. "I was running my heart out," Bolt said. "I got my start right and that was the key. And when I got the start I knew was fine."Alonso Edward of Panama was second, a massive .62 seconds behind Bolt. Wallace Spearmon of the United States took bronze.After defending champion Tyson Gay had withdrawn injured, Bolt's main competitor stood beyond the finishing line — a huge track clock painted in the same colors as his Jamaican jersey.

Bolt's spirits got a boost before the start when teammate Melaine Walker added the world title to her Olympic gold in the women's 400 hurdles, another success for the Caribbean island with outsized performances at the championships.
His running was even better than his show. From Lane 5, he gobbled up all the opposition by the end of the curve, and then let those huge arms and legs loose in a whirl of unmatched speed. Once across the line, he stuck his tongue much like basketball great Michael Jordan used to. And in athletics, he now has the same exalted stature. He took off his yam-colored shoes, which had taken him though through eight races in six days, and he started celebrating on the eve of his 23rd birthday.
