Alien Covenant

Alien Covenant


It is not just Ridley Scott but even I don't personally believe that humans are just a mere by-product of a molecular evolution over a very long period of time. Earth has trillions and trillions of species on board but rape exists only in one species and that is humans is one, not a rejectable reason why I think Humans don't belong to this planet which has so many other "cultured" species possessing the right qualities to co-exists in this wonderful planet.

I personally liked the point in the film where the two protagonists discuss that a creator would always create something that doesn't come in way of his own survival. The basic 3 Rules with which Robots are created is one fine example for this. If we are Gods to Robots and in order to ensure robots are always under us we have laid restrictions in its directives, then why God himself would not have done the same to us? As a 'restricted' species, how are we expecting to reveal god or his elements when he has purposefully restricted us?

Ridley Scott says we all are 'restricted' species by design in such a way that we don't step in the way of the one who created us all. Interesting. Isn't it? Most importantly, he says, we don't belong to this planet and that if there are aliens around then we are the ones.

Supporting to this, is the survival of David in the rouge planet because almost half of all that roams around in that planet are engineered by him and to take his experiments and creations to the next level, David pretends to be Walter and takes over Covenant ship to the new habitable planet which is at 7-years-of-cryogenic-sleep distance.

If you have already seen Prometheus and Aliens vs predators movies, the ugly creatures that appear all through the movie would not surprise or shock you much. In fact, as a sci-fi movie, Alien Covenant is not that difficult to understand too as it has nothing to do with warping, alternate timelines, black holes, worm holes and so many other quantum physics terminologies. But showing the same ugly creatures this time, in white color doesn't  make much of a difference.

I don't understand the point when the ugly alien was stuck in that huge transport vehicle and fell off the ship. If you notice, it doesn't fall as if it falls in space which is nothing but vacuum. Ideally, it should follow the ship because technically it was a part of the ship until fall and therefore it should have retained the same velocity since in vacuum there is no resistance to a speeding object.

Any speeding object in vacuum continues to drift away in the same speed because there is no medium at all. How does it fall? In space, mass doesn't matter except gravity and warping. Right?

One other thing I didn't understand was when their sensors picked up a signal in a planet which is only weeks away, they immediately choose to check it out and the moment the expedition group lands, they roam around the land with no masks or any concern about the breathable atmosphere or anything like that. How is that possible?

Neglecting all these, Alien Covenant was a worth-watching sci-fi movie. I love Sci-fi and I should agree, it was worth for the 11 dollars.

3-மே-2017 தேதியிட்ட இந்த வார ஆனந்த விகடன் இதழில் சொல்வனம் பகுதியில் "காட்டு விலங்கு" என்ற தலைப்பிலான எனது கவிதை பக்கம் 52ல் வெளியாகியிருக்கிறது.
எனது கவிதையை தேர்வு செய்து வெளியிட்ட ஆனந்த விகடன் ஆசிரியர் குழுவுக்கு எனது நெஞ்சார்ந்த நன்றிகளை தெரிவித்துக்கொள்கிறேன்.



Fiction: Aliens by Ram Prasath






"Sir, we heard that you are suspended from NASA operations due to your stupid attitude issue within the organization?" the reporter of DailyNews.com asked.

​"Yes. It is true that I have been suspended" Collins said.

"We have also been told that you floated across unreliable informations about America's first moon landing?" the reporter further asked.

"You must have also heard that I claimed alien-visits to Earth" Collins said.

"Yes sir" the reporter replied firmly.

"So what is your question now?" Collins asked.

The reporter thought for a moment.

"Sir, with due respect, I don't agree that Earth has been threatened by Aliens ever since we sent man-made objects to moon sir. So you must had been crazy about those of your unreliable informations" he added.

"I hope you agree that Neil Armstrong was the first to land on the moon" Collins asked.

"Yes sir."

"What do you think that came back from moon?" Collins asked.

The reporter's eyebrows shrunk.

"Wasn't it, Neil?" he asked.

ஆனந்த விகடன் இதழில் எனது கவிதை


23-மார்ச்-2017 தேதியிட்ட ஆனந்த விகடன் இதழில் வெளியான எனது கவிதைக்கு சன்மானத்தொகை எனது வங்கிக்கணக்கில் வரவு வைத்துவிட்டதாக ஆனந்த விகடன் அலுவலகத்திலிருந்து இன்று வந்த மின்னஞ்சலை பார்த்த பிறகு தான் 23 மார்ச் 2017 ல் எனது கவிதை வெளியாகியிருப்பதையே தெரிந்துகொள்கிறேன்.

எனது கவிதையை தேர்வு செய்து வெளியிட்ட ஆனந்த விகடன் ஆசிரியர் குழுவுக்கு எனது நன்றிகளை தெரிவித்துக்கொள்கிறேன்.

கவிதை வெளியான இதழின் பிரதி நண்பர்கள் யாரிடமேனும் இருந்தால் பகிர இயலுமா?

எதற்கு இந்த அலைச்சல்? பேசாமல் ஆனந்த விகடன் இணைய பிரதிக்கு சந்தா கட்டிவிடலாமே? நல்ல ஐடியா தான்.. ஆனால் ஒரு நாளின் பெரும்பாலான நேரங்கள் அலுவலக வேலை, எதையேனும் வாசிப்பது, எழுதுவது என்று கணிப்பொறி திரையிலேயே கழிகிறது.. நானெல்லாம் துண்டு சீட்டில் எதையேனும் கிறுக்கி வைத்தால் கூட எடுத்து படித்து விடுபவன். என்னிடம் ஆனந்த விகடனின் எல்லா இதழ்களும் கிடைத்தால்!!

ஓ மை காட்..

நினைத்து பார்க்கவே கொடூரமாக இருக்கிறது. இதை யோசித்தே இத்தனை நாளும் சந்தா கட்டாமல் இருந்தேன்.. சந்தா கட்டிவிட்டால் கண்டிப்பாக என்னை கட்டுப்படுத்தவே முடியாது.. ஆண்டின் அத்தனை இதழ்களையும் வரி விடாமல் வாசிப்பதோடு மீள் வாசிப்பு வேறு செய்து பார்த்துவிடுவேன்.. அது ஒரு மாபெறும் அக்சஷனுக்குள் என்னை தள்ளிவிடும் வாய்ப்பிருக்கிறது. Literarlly its a trap. எழுதுவதற்கான நேரம் குறைந்துவிடலாம்.

இது போன்ற சன்மானத்தொகைகள் ஆண்டு முடிவில் ஒரு புத்தகமாக உதவுகின்றன. அதுவும்  வாசகனை வாங்கச்செய்ய வேண்டிய கட்டாயம் இல்லாத புத்தகம். கடந்த மூன்று - நான்கு வருடங்களாக புத்தக வெளியீட்டில் எனது ஃபார்முலா இதுதான். இதனால் எனக்கும் நஷ்டமில்லை என்பதால் நண்பர்களுக்கோ, தெரிந்தவர்களுக்கோ வாசிக்க இலவசமாக தருவதில் எவ்வித தயக்கமும் இல்லை.

எனது கணித நாவலை அப்படித்தான் பலருக்கு தந்திருந்தேன்.. விமர்சனங்கள் ஏதும் பெரியதாக வெளியாகவில்லை. உள்ளடக்கம் தரமானதுதான். அதில் துரும்பளவு கூட சந்தேகமில்லை. இருப்பினும்..................................................

தமிழ் எழுத்துலகத்தின் இயங்குமுறை சற்று அல்ல, ரொம்பவே சிக்கலானது. அது யார் யாரையோ காணாமல் அடித்திருக்கிறது.. நானெல்லாம் எம்மாத்திரம்? அதனால் விட்டுவிடலாம்...

கைவசம் நிறைய சிறுகதைகள் இருக்கின்றன. கவிதைகள் இருக்கின்றன.. தொகுத்தால் நான்கைந்து தொகுப்பாவது தேறும். அத்தனைக்கும் இன்னும் பணம் சேரவில்லை. சேரும் வரை வெளியிடும் எண்ணமும் இல்லை. பணம் வாங்காமல் எந்த பதிப்பாளராவது புத்தகமாக்க முன்வந்தால் நான்கைந்து புத்தகங்கள் வெளியீடு காணும்..

Haramkhor - Review

Haramkhor - Review


Haraamkhor, I would not say a class movie but can definitely say a movie taken in a class. Yes. The dull looking talented actor Nawazuddin Siddiqui's recent flick went on to theaters with a lot of criticism because of the story line of the movie.

Guess what! School teacher having an affair with his student!

Anti-social, definitely the movie is but I am wondering what might have made this talented actor to sign for this movie. I should say Siddiqui is fearless in accepting characters that come in his way and perhaps that is what he considers, his best. Badlapur was his first one that I happened to see sarcastically when I could not find any good movie to watch in that long boring in-flight from Germany to Atlanta by Lufthansa on a warm summer day. Initially, I just wanted to give it a try and honestly speaking it was Siddiqui's body language that drew me into the movie for the next few hours.



I remember once, in Kapil Sharma show, Shah Rukh Khan admitted Siddique's acting skills in front of so many people and that is not an easy recognition to get from Bollywood Baadshaah.

Haraamkhor is difficult to narrate and not that it should not be narrated at all.

In this existentialist world, these kind of stories are the flavors of reality and by that, Haraamkhor is just another story of the society that we belong to, undoubtedly. So we definitely have to digest it and perhaps should even take the time to assimilate it because it is in this society that all our loved ones are dwelling. Things like this happen a lot in cities and towns and most stories submerge like a submarine vessel under water but have their own place in the bunch of gossips that are left as a trail.

The film has been taken in such a way that, One cannot blame the teacher alone for the adultery. Enough rationale has been left in the film to let the viewer conclude that it was a perfect magnetism between the teacher and the student.

I would say, the word "Freedom" has been terribly misunderstood. Haraamkhor can be described as a film that is shedding light on the other side of those for whom, between freedom-with-responsibility and freedom-without-responsibility, it is the later that is easy to adapt. The Sandhya's father has another family which Sandhya gets to know at some point in time and that is when she begins to feel "left-behind". At this stage, she happens to see her teacher Shyam with a small boy and she purposefully tries to keep herself away from Shyam from then on. But she could not cut down his classes and the continuing negligence from his father continues to keep her within the reach of Shyam and the rest of the story becomes easily predictable.

Siddique is so natural at playing the role of a rural school teacher. Be it the scene when he stares at Sandhya who plays a video game while on their way to the town to meet a doctor or the scene when he, after having given up arguing with his wife goes back to Sandhya whom he had ignored on the way back from hospital, he is so casual at displaying a common poor school teacher's mentality.

The word freedom is just an illusion and so long as it remained an illusion, they both could cage themselves in their "whatsoever" love but once the freedom became unbounded from the illusion, the reality hits them so badly but unfortunately the movie ends up brutally there itself leaving enough clue to the viewer that the entire film was only filmed for financial benefits.

Towards the end,  not only they both paid their cost for the irresponsible-freedom that they enjoyed but also made their dependents pay an un-comparable price. The only difference was, it was Shyam's wife in Shyam's case and I don't have to tell you who would it be in the case of Sandhya.
