Osthe: Dabang for Tamils is like holding TorchLight for Sun

My room mate in Ohio State made really bad sambar during his cooking turn. Everybody including him knew his sambar did not taste well. It was really really bad sambar. So what he did was affix a proper noun for his sambar. He named his sambar 'The Tasty Sambar'. That was the name. Similar to vattha kozhambu, paruppu kozhambu, vengaya sambar, pooshnikkai sambar - the name of his sambar was 'tasty sambar'. After that whenever you ate during his cooking turn - you couldnt say his sambar was not tasty sambar. Because that was the name of the sambar. So he kept making really bad sambar and we kept calling it 'tasty sambar'.

Osthe is somewhat like that. You cant call the movie 'thazhmai' or cannot claim its 'not osthe' because that is the name of the movie.

Oh joy! Are you saying that it is really possible to isolate the "talking a lot" gene?

JJ repealed the tax thing as soon as she came to power. So now you cannot get tax break for naming a film in Tamil. What build up they give before the movie is released! Any way I applaud your courage for seeing the movie :-)
