and the ' veeraval ' goes to...

I have no idea who this guy V. Balakrishnan is…I don’t know who are all the members of his Amutha Surabi Kalai Mandram…no clues what they do the rest of the 364 days in a year..but what they've been doing on one day every year is most amusing.They've been bringing to Madurai some of the iconic legends of Tamil filmdom like Vayapuri, Laila, Abirami, Shyam etc and presenting them with amazing awards and titles…in a gala event at Raja Muthiah Mandram.
This time they presented ‘veeravals’ (swords of valor) to Sneha, Priyamani and Padmapriya. Very brave ladies indeed…to come and accept such an award itself needs guts…so no need of any doubts here. And of course, Sneha made her acceptance speech in chaste ‘Madura tamil’ and made the day for the mob…Another ‘veeraval’ recipient was director Pee.vasu. He was once titled by this same mandram as ‘navarasa eeyakkunar’…for directing the silliest movie of all time ‘chinathambi’…man this was needless…for the quality of movies he makes, he already has the fitting title in his initials…I almost forgot. Some new actor called Prasanna was also encouraged with a veraval..but who cares for dessert, lets focus on the main dish…Sneha made her speech in…..ok ok I already said that

Well, the only glaring difference between this awards show and Oscars is that, here the award winners have to undergo an interactive question answer session with the audience. So guys, its just not fun but informative as well..

Nothing can match the fanatical film craze that this city embarrasses you with. Ok, Trichy still holds the Guinness record for building worship places for actresses…But what you see in Madurai is unmatched hilarity in its own way… So what, Sneha made her speech in……


  1. I want to visit all the temples for actresses in Trichy someday.. .. I'm just curious.. what happens there??
