Why Anjali Menon is so special for me?

I know, many among you’re so doubted with the title part of this post itself! “Anjali Menon? Who is she?”, a quiet, natural query that would come directly to your mind if she is a stranger to you;  I reckon, she is a familiar personality for every Mallu movie lover. Hence, for the ones who don’t know anything regarding her, let me narrate what I know about her briefly at first.
 

Anjali Menon, an Indian Movie Director- Script Writer who has created her own insignia in the Film Industry within a short span of time after releasing Manjadikkuru, her debuted Malayalam movie. She was born in Calicut, Kerala and grew up in Dubai in the later stages of her childhood for a few years and came back to Kerala in the later period. She has done her high school education in Calicut, Kerala and graduated with a degree in commerce from Providence Women’s College, Kerala. Later she did a graduation in communication studies and specialized in TV related production in Pune, India. It was during the year 2000, she has joined at the London Film School, specializing in Film Direction, and was awarded with overall distinction honors in directing and editing of a film.

I suppose, the description would surely propitiate you all to have a simple note regarding her. For me, Anjali Menon is not only a beautiful lady who has a pile of pure succulent magical threads in her creative-innovative thoughts that I’ve seen through her director’s talent in Manjadikkuru, though she is a pakka Mallu personality who’s a lot of memories to be shared regarding the strong bond of relationships and love between the common lives in Kerala. 

It was Manjadikkuru[Lucky Red Seeds], her first debuted movie in Malayalam, which deals with the tale of homecoming family members from the late 1970’s; the story goes through the eyes of Vicky, a 10 year old boy, arrives at his grandparents’ home in a rural area of Kerala to attend his grandfather’s funeral.  The whole members in family united together for a common ceremony after a long time, though it was for a funeral function and they gathered together for the sixteen day long Kerala’s traditional burial period. During this period, Vicky discovers more about himself, his family and culture than he had expected to. The journey later narrates through the adult lurks of Vicky, who returns to the same house for having some ingenuous espy about the past memories of his Grand parents home. He came as a young man (Pritivi) to visit the old grounds he’s in memories, and finds the ‘Lucky little seeds’ scattered away. Manjadikkuru serves me a lot of tentative influxes from Anjali about the ancient Kerala’s tradition and rituals. Even though I have studied the history behind our cultures, traditions and rituals existed here from my social studies text-book years back, it was a new experience for me to have a keen benevolent being through the realistic scenes of this flick. As she expatiated us (people in Kerala) with Manjadikuru [Lucky Red Seeds] only on May 2012, most of them aren’t familiar regarding the premiere of the movie at an International Film Festival and won the award for the Best Mallu Movie and Best Dubutant Director during the year 2008. In 2009, the movie bagged enough nominations for various honors, including 5 Grand Jury Awards – Best Film, Best Director, Best Screenplay, Best Cinematographer and Best Emerging Talent at SAIFF venue, New York. Other than Manjadikkuru, she has written the story-script part for Anwar Rashid’s Usthad Hotel too. She isn’t the one who is running behind fame or money. You can’t see her any interviews or TV shows. She knows what, when, where and for whom to do.  That’s why, Anjali Menon is a great attitude marker for me, personally.

My dame, Lavigne!<3 :-*

“I found myself in Wonderland
Get back on my feet, on ground
Is this real?
Is this pretend?
I’ll take a stand until the end

I, I’ll get by
I, I’ll survive
When the world’s crashing down
When I fall and hit the ground
I will turn myself around
Don’t you try to stop me
I, I won’t cry”

Love you lots!<3<3<3

I love you Lavigne!

This isn’t an article. It’s a small write up which is specially dedicating for you my dame gal, Avril Lavigne! 🙂

Actually it’s still unknown what actually I have on her. I didn’t felt such sort of feeling towards any celebs yet. It’s something like a lurid-full infatuation! I don’t know how to express it???? 😛 :/
But after all it’s a tremulous truth that I love you Lavigne…..
I don’t care what ever others think about me, since I’m speaking in a public reside now! 😀

Dear Avril lavigne,

I’m not just a great fan of yours! You are someone “really special to me”. May be because of the attitude you have, serene beauty of yours, way of pop ups, prominent rampart or??????! It’s still unknown, why I have such a satyr on you. I’m not at all interested in giving any special meanings for that declaration. You know, it would be meaningless if a slandered hornet won’t be attacked by anyone seen besides….! 😛

It started off during my teenage period! Once, I was supposed to hear “complicated” song  in TV. It doesn’t works well on me I guess. But I have noticed you from that instant onwards gal. Later on, I used to hear “When you are gone” !! Oh my gosh…..It was like a drug for me. Must vacillate and vibrates it for at least 6 times/day around my ears.  Else I was like a real coward, who gets inactivate passively.

Now this is the most outstanding work did by you according to my opinion. It promulgates the feeling of “Innocence” in an embedding way. That’s why, it pierced in to my mind as much deep it can. 🙂

“Innocence”

 Waking up I see that everything is OK

The first time in my life and now it’s so great

Slowing down I look around and I am so amazed

I think about the little things that make life great

I wouldn’t change a thing about it

This is the best feeling

[Chorus]

 This innocence is brilliant I hope that it will stay

This moment is perfect Please don’t go away

I need you now

And I’ll hold on to it Don’t you let it pass you by

I found a place so safe, not a single tear

The first time in my life and now it’s so clear

Feel calm, I belong, I’m so happy here

It’s so strong and now I let myself be sincere

I wouldn’t change a thing about it

This is the best feeling

[Chorus]

 It’s a state of bliss, you think you’re dreaming

It’s the happiness inside that you’re feeling

It’s so beautiful it makes you wanna cry It’s a state of bliss, you think you’re dreaming

It’s the happiness inside that you’re feeling

It’s so beautiful it makes you wanna cry It’s so beautiful it makes you wanna cry

This innocence is brilliant Makes you wanna cry

This innocence is brilliance

Please don’t go away

Cause I need you now And I’ll hold on to it

Don’t you let it pass you by

[Chorus]

Still telling you! I’m one among the insane guy, who is highly sensitive about you fairy freakieeeee…….. 🙂

With love,
Rahul Ashok
