Valu - the bull

The village 'Kusavde' came to light with the launch of Valu. 'Valu' is a recent Marathi movie directed by Umesh Kulkarni.

The movie is definitely a watch for Marathi movie lovers. This movie gives a glimpse of rural Maharashtra movies starting from the chief of the village to its everyday people.

Valu, also called 'Durkya' is the main hero of the movie who has been a troublemaker for Kusavde.

Atul Kulkarni stars as forest officer. His acting has been good at places but sometimes the use of too much English in his Marathi vocabularly makes one thing is he really a government 'fauuurest' officer.

Some funny scenes of the movie include dialogues by Mohan Agashe stating that even donkeys of the town had participated in the battle of Panipat.

Typical village scenes where things move slowly have also been showed.

Whenever the camera focuses on 'Valu' the music producer has introduced a new tunes which sounds catchy.

Gung Ho - Review

Within movies watched this week is the one suggested on NPR. This movie was suggested on NPR based on current weakening in the US auto industry and take over by the Japanese auto makers. What makes the Japanese autos superior to their US counterparts.

"Gung Ho" , the comedy movie takes you to a cultural clash between American automakers who have Japanese bosses.

One noticeable difference is that the Japanese have work higher up in their priority listthan family quite reverse to a typical American.

Another difference is 90% accuracy vs. a 100% accuracy.
Watch this movie to see who wins the battle of "family first or work first".

Michael Keaton plays Hunt Stevenson.

Plants update

Unfortunately the marigold gave up the torturous Florida heat and shed all its flowers and its energy. We will replace it with some other one. Vinca might be suitable in Florida summer /rainy season.
