Tanu Weds Manu returns – review

Posted by Irus on May 23, 2015

Going by the trailer and songs of this movie on youtube – Banno and Ghani Bawri, without a question this was the sweetest movie of 2015 i was anticipating, if just for Kangana Ranaut and by jove did she deliver. If you are are in a hurry like i was to watch it on the first day then GO NOW and watch it; skip this review entirely till afterwards!

However if you are basking in the warm afterglow of having already watched it then you should stick around and we should have a tete-a-tete over a cup of kool aid of the sexy Banno i’ve been drinking, promise it tastes great!

The concept and theme of the movie revolves around the ironic hilarity that ensues the moment one enters the institution of marriage but in the words of Raja Awasthi underlying which is cement that sticks the two bricks together. It is this profound sense of oneness between a couple which the movie is about. The same characters from the first movie are present in this movie however Kusum is the new entry.

swagKusum is a rustic haryanvi beauty – a character played by Kangana Ranaut as a double role in addition to the original character of Tanuja, probably the best character created for her so far. The young restless, strong headed, able bodied, straight talking national level athlete who smashes her opponents Jat style has been portrayed so well by Kangana that you’d hope this was someone real you could hang out with.

This movie is not perfect though and the plot is a little over crowded. For example the story could have been streamlined and kidnapping of Komal Ahuja or the test tube baby bit or the lecture on women empowerment could have been done away with. Also the starting scene could have been played out in Delhi between the couple from where Tanuja could have returned to Kanpur, which would have been more logical. Zeeshan Ayyubs character was also frivolous and could have been done away with. Jimmy Shergill and Deepak Dobriyal have done well in their roles as have the rest of the cast.

In an effort to please everyone the ending, left a little bit to be desired where the strong headed Kusum betrays the strengths of her character and opts out of the marriage. Somehow that did not sit too well with me.

Madhavans character didn’t have much to do however it was the ending where the growth in his character into a strong personality could have been shown and where he might have chosen to complete the marriage with his new found love. This could have given some hope for a part 3 on a more solid footing where the opening scene could have started as a fight between Madhavan and Kusum just like part 2 started and the story could have shown a second round of matching between the characters. The chances of another sequel stand slim as of now.

I would have also preferred if the interaction between the characters was more elaborate, and the personalities more layered for example the confrontation between Kusum and Tanuja was powerful, more such scenes between different family members would have definitely helped. Some dialogues could have been added between the family, Tanuja and Madhavan right after the Ghani bawri song.

On the whole however this is a fantastic movie and head and shoulders above all the movies released so far this year; afterall Banno tera Swagger Lagge Sexy!! Bollywood learn from TWM team we want to see more of this more often!

Prophet Mohammad’s birth date

Posted by Irus on March 1, 2015

In continuation of the last article where i explored Krishna’s birth date now its time to explore Prophet Mohammad’s birth date. Wikipedia provides no certain date but gives a round about figure of 570AD.

It is obvious that when someone who is as powerful as a messenger or prophet descends on Earth the planetary alignments in the sky would be fairly powerful. Therefore i set out to check whether any powerful alignments were happening close to this date.

Yes there were some very important planetary alignments happening within a decade of the given date of 570AD  as given below in this chart.


As can be seen all planets are in their houses of strength with the exception of Moon which is in the 2nd house in Aquarius. It is not evident from the chart above but moon and Saturn are conjunct which is evident from their degree positions. This is shows for a personality who is trying to structure (saturn) emotions (moon) of his larger family (moon in Aquarius – Kumbha meaning family). This is a somewhat painful combination to have in ones chart. However provides for the foundation of swift justice, exemplary punishment and strict laws for which middle east is even now well known. This sort of a personality would also be a necessary force to have any impact on nomadic, lawless desert tribes of long ago in the middle east. Even today middle east rolls in oil money and needs strict discipline to keep it from slipping.

Besides the above the chart is full of auspicious yogas as given below


Now the question arises what precise moment were the planets so aligned to have produced someone of the magnitude and impact of Prophet? That is given below in this chart.



It so happens that this day is also a Monday which is widely believed to be the day of his birth.

The above details are the most likely point in time when Prophet Mohamad might have been born in Mecca.

Lord Buddha’s birth date

Posted by Irus on March 1, 2015

In continuation of the series covering probable birthdates for Krishna, Prophet Mohammad and Aryabhatta now it is time to look at Lord Buddha’s birth date. It is advised to read those articles before continuing because some concepts of deriving birthdates are common as are some other themes and will not be repeated here.

Lord Buddha’s birth date is given as either 583 BC or 480 BC in Wikipedia. After checking for Aryabhattas birth date which was shifted from 813BC to 499AD – a shift of 1312 years and not finding any important planetary alignments in sky for 583BC or 480BC it was logical to check for years at 583bc+1312 years – 1895BC and 480BC+1312years at 1792 BC years.

Another clue was Zoroasters birth date close to that of Buddha. How could two important figures born so close to each other have no important planetary alignments in sky?

As such it was imperative to explore planetary alignments close to 1895BC and 1792BC. The former yielded no results but the latter date yielded results for 1787BC and 1806BC. After analyzing the charts it was clear the the 1787 chart belonged to Buddha and the latter probably to Zoroaster. The 1787BC chart is given below



(The debate on his birthplace being Kapileshwar or Lumbini is moot for this post because they both are very close longitudinally.)



The Interesting part about this chart is Sun (ego) is conjunct Ketu, wherever ketu is placed we try to move away from that aspect, in this case Buddhas struggle with his ego is well known. Another feature of this chart is Jupiter in capricorn which is in the sign of its fall as such Buddha was striving for salvation. This also makes it clear the difference between an avtar and messenger/prophet where there is no struggle for liberation on the part of Avtar.

Finally besides other prominent yogas the chart has Sadhu and Tapaswi Yoga and Budha was a known ascetic.
