Hi all,

After reading so much about the Japanese movie Departures in Wikipedia and Rotten Tomattoes, i want to watch the movie. But anyone from chennai have any idea of where i can get this movie DVD. Or should i wait for the Satyam or Inox theatre to release? Besides it won the Academy Awards for the best foreign language movie.

Anyways i’m gonna hunt for it in the city. Lets see if i will be able to get one and watch this weekend.

A R Rahman on his acceptance speech at the Academy awards said:

Before coming, I was excited and terrified. The last time I felt like that was during my marriage.

There’s a dialogue from a Hindi film called “Mere paas ma hai,” which means “I have nothing but I have a mother,” so mother’s here, her blessings are there with me. I am grateful for her to have come all the way. And I want to thank the Academy for being so kind, all the jury members.

I want to thank Sam Schwartz, I/D PR, all the crew of Slumdog, Mr. Gulzar, Raqueeb Alam, Blaaze, my musicians in Chennai and Mumbai.

And I want to tell something in Tamil, which says, which I normally say after every award which is “எல்லா புகழும் இறைவனுக்கே” (ella puhazhum iraivanukke)  “God is great”  Thank you.

We as your fellow country men are really proud of you. We pray god for a long life for our MOZART OF MADRAS. JAI HO!!!
