Magizhchi !!!

Not the best of Super Star a.k.a Rajnikanth

But good enough to bring #Magizhchi to all those die hard Rajni Fans for whom Rajni movies have become a rare phenomenon now a days.

A movie devoid of the typical Rajni comedy and stunts, However for a man who captures his audience just by his aura. Style and Rajni are synonymous whatever he does becomes a statement. Be it the way he flips the goggles before wearing or how he throws and catches a cigarette, or the way he walks or sits everything.

No doubt this movie will break all previous records and might become another landmark, however with such an expectations it would have been great if movie was worth its hype. The story seems to be a good one and woven around a good message, Rajni does what he does best and so is the supporting cast. I somehow felt that the makers could have used the plot better and also at some places it seems as if they were dragging it a bit more. To much of Malay dialogue could have been avoided and scenes where Kabali is looking out for his wife in Chennai and Pondicherry could have been tidied up a little more. Radhika Apte has done justice to her role and plays it well, I understand its too much to ask for Rajni movie but Radhika Apte should have given a little more screen space. Liked Danshika and the twist of her turning out as Kabali’s daughter rather than a paid assassin intending to kill Kabali.

The last scene of the movie implies that someone shoots even Rajni in the end, Giving a message that even the Hero has to die after being a Gangster, But the movie makers have intelligently not shown that seen had they done it Rajni Fans might have burnt the cinema hall.

Finally Leaving you all with the lyrics of the famous title song:

Neruppu Da!
Nerungu Da!
Mudiyuma?!

Bayama Ha Ha!
Nerupuda!
Nerunguda Papom!
Nerunguna
Posukura Kootam!

Adikira Alikira Ennam
Mudiyuma Nadakuma Innum!

Adakuna Adangura Aala Nee!
Eluthathum Piriyura Noola Nee!
Thadaiyellam Mathikira Aala Nee!
Vidiyala Virumbidum Kabali

Magizhchi!

Karunaiyai Maru
Kavalaigalai Aru
Idhayathil Oru Irukum Varum Poru
Yaavum Inge Maayam Maayam
Un Veeram Engum Seeri Paayum
Nam Desam Engum Rosam Yerum
Oru Vaarthai Kooda Pudhu Maatram Kaanum

Na Vanthutenu Solu
Thirumbi Vanthutenu,
25 Varshathuku Munadi Epdi Ponano Kabali,
Apdiye Thirumbi Vanthutenu Solu..
Kabali Da

Viduthalai Adai
Vidaiyena Ninai
Bayathaye Murai
Pagal Kanavai Udai
Veeram Thyagam Modhum Modhum
Un Tholil Kaayam Aarum Aarum
Ini Kurotham Dhrogam Maayum Maayum
Varungaalam Ini Idhigaasam Aagum.

I am not a Rajni Fan but Could not resist the following photoshop

Watch your Step

AR (Augmented Reality) games like Pokémon GO solve one of the most important concern of the digital immigrant parents that their kids do not go out and play and stay glued to their smartphone/tablet.For those who have been living under a rock and do not know what Pokémon GO is – Its a augmented reality based mobile game .

Pikachu-appearsThe game uses your smartphone’s camera, GPS, and position sensors to tell the game what to display and where, creating the illusion that cute little cartoon “pocket monsters” are standing in your living room, on the sidewalk outside, or in the park nearby. You grab free Pokéballs (to catch the critters, naturally) at local sites of historical interest. And businesses can purchase Pokémon “lures” as advertising to draw imaginary monsters and real fans to their physical location.

Coming out alongside the app is a smart wearable called the Pokémon GO Plus. It can be worn like a watch or just carried in a pocket. The GO Plus uses Bluetooth technology to communicate with your phone and let you know when something is happening in the game, like when there’s a Pokémon nearby, so you don’t need to be staring at your phone all day everyday to participate. You can even do simple actions like throwing Pokéballs by pressing the button in the center of the device (which glows in rainbow colors).

One challenge though is that the game has access to lot of your online data and there is a growing concern that this can be misused when in wrong hands. Also Pokemon GO has been under scrutiny across the world from those concerned that the game could lead people into dangerous areas or cause them to stop paying attention to the road. There are reports in the US and Canada of men falling from a cliff while playing the game, as well as people being knocked by cars.

The most disruptive technology of this decade

The most disruptive technology of this decades  undoubtedly is the Internet of Things or IoT as its called in short. If you keep track of the technology you might have already noted that the hype has moved on from Internet, Cloud , Big data or mobility to something which encompasses all of these in one. The IoT is a buzz word for most and I would like to clear some air and put it in plain simple terms. Internet of Things revolves around increased machine-to-machine communication; it’s built on cloud computing and networks of data-gathering sensors; it’s mobile, virtual, and instantaneous connection; and it’s going to make everything in our lives from door bell to dog collar “smart.”

Unlike other technological trends in the recent past, IoT is not a single thing but a lot of things working together. What makes it even more interesting is that it touches the life of each and everyone without even them knowing and still using it. Microprocessors or intelligent chips have been a part of your everyday electronics but they had mostly been up to themselves and not communicating with each other. As the internet has increased its reach in the past decade and half it has become accessible to everyone and has become a part of the household now. People may argue that internet is not fully available to all in the remotest part of the world or even in countries like India only a fraction of this population has internet access. However things are changing with one another revolution which came a few years after internet. I am referring to the smartphone age which has made internet available in every individuals pocket. This change has made the internet itself mobile and available in the nooks and corners. The smartphone not only solves the connectivity part of the IoT but also acts as sensors for many applications. The smartphone is loaded with sensors which can now report back location, capture sound and video, identify if you are stationary, walking , riding a bike or on a vehicle. Cloud and Big data which seemed like a good to have thing has become a must have for enterprises.  Enterprises who have been slow in adopting Cloud or mobility have now realized that in order to keep up with the trend and ride the IoT wave they have to have cloud and mobility.

IoT opens up infinite possibilities for enterprises to interact and engage with customers in a more customized way.  While its still in the nascent state and a long way to go this one technology is going to be the one to watch out for the remaining of this decade.
