Money Face-Off: Tiger Woods vs. David Beckham


Celebrities -- they're more than superior human beings, they're money-making machines. If these celebrities were stocks, which would be the shrewd buy?

Tiger Woods, unarguably the world's greatest golfer, or David Beckham, the world's best-know soccer player -- in which would you invest?

The industry that is Tiger has shown consistent growth in earnings, with PGA winnings in his first 13 years as a pro exceeding $70 million. His presence in a golf tournament boosts television ratings by 50% or more. He almost single-handedly established Nike in the golf equipment world. He holds the #5 place in Forbes' Celebrity 100 and was #2 in press clippings in 2005. Nike (NYSE: NKE), Buick (NYSE: GM), American Express (NYSE: AXP), Accenture, Electronic Arts (NASDAQ: ERTS) and Tag Heuer are among the companies that shovel buckets of cash his way in return for his endorsement.

David Beckham is no slouch in the cash category, either. The Times estimates the soccer star brings in a cool $40+ million for endorsements, including Adidas, ESPN, and Motorola (NYSE: MOT). Even in soccer-lite America, he has 51.9% recognition, more than twice that of NBA MVP Tim Duncan of the San Antonio Spurs.

Beckham also has an invaluable ally in his wife Victoria, formerly Posh Spice of the Spice Girls. The combination of a high-profile soccer career, trophy wife, and his reputation as the alpha metrosexual who sets fashion trends, convinced this country's Major League Soccer league to sign him to a contract worth as much as $250 million, including endorsement tie-ins.

Pretty enticing properties, right? So which would you like a piece of?

For my money, it's Tiger, by a landslide. At 30, he can expect to play at the peak of his game for another 12 to 15 years, then segue to the Senior Tour for another 20 years. As a player in a solo sport, he doesn't run the risk of disappearing in the roster of a bottom-dwelling team (ask Ken Griffey Jr.) Since he endorses products that aren't youth-specific, this income should remain strong. He also handles his fame well, making it seem highly unlikely he would stumble into a scandal.

Beckham, on the other hand, plays in a game unkind to the 35 and older player. He's already suffered through numerous injuries, which played a part in his lack of success with the Real Madrid club the past three years. He and his wife have quickly embraced the Hollywood scene, a two-edged sword -- he might successfully transition from sports star to entertainment star, but he could also suffer star fatigue from the overexposure that comes with the turf. My guess is that, after a couple of years of MLS play, he'll make a stab at acting. If that's a business plan, it's not one I'd put my money on.

Tiger vs. Beckham? Beckham may be able to bend 'em, but Tiger can put them in the hole. Who would you choose?

Vote in our poll for David Beckham or Tiger Woods, and let us know in the comments why your choice has the financial edge in this match-up. Also be sure to check out our other Money Face-Offs.

David Beckham voted United's greatest ever No. 7


Precisely one week ago, we asked you to vote for the greatest ever player to put on United’s No. 7 shirt. With a history of previous owners including Cantona, Best, Beckham and Ronaldo it’s a toughie but an amazing 8,934 of you clicked an opinion and the results are now in.

Despite the early pace being set by Bestie and Ronaldo in a classic confrontation between past and present, one man known for his bouncebackability has come from behind to top the poll…David Beckham.

Becks scrored 40% of the votes – in front of Ronaldo (36%), Best (16%) and Cantona (8%).

We have to admit we’re surprised that Goldenballs has taken the title – perhaps his US fan club got wind of the vote or maybe Posh has been spending her time clicking away at the computer.

GOAL looks at 100% collections over the weekend

GOAL has opened to a positive response this Friday.

Though the film's promotion was being underplayed and the makers were looking at the film speaking for itself, the audience has given it a green signal if the film's opening is anything to go by. Friday surprised even those who were associated with the film as it took 80-100% start at the multiplexes (it's target audience) across the country.

The slick look, young star cast and an addictive theme song did the trick as audience, which had been waiting for a new film after all the hullabaloo around OSO/SAAWARIYA, got a new film to watch. To take the good opening forward, the weekend seems to be heartening as well as Saturday was near 100% while Sunday advance booking is showing a similar picture too.

His CHOCOLATE may have been a little bitter at the box office but with GOAL, Vivek Agnihotri does seem to have the goal!

SRK: Shahrukh Khan the Sexiest Asian

He is uber cool, he is sexy, he is super intelligent, he is the reigning superstar of India and now he is also the sexiest man in Asia.


According to a poll conducted by UK’s leading Asian newspaper, SRK has been placed before two other hotties — Hrithik Roshan and John Abraham. Last week, Bipasha Basu won votes in favour of her and was titled the sexiest woman in Asia, followed by Priyanka Chopra and Madhuri Dixit.

From among a list of 100 names that were published and featured on the newspaper’s website, King Khan walked away with the crown. The panel of judges who decided to award him the title include eminent British Asians from the world of films, television, fashion, media and showbiz. The judges ranked the public’s 20 most popular names and then the newspaper collated the judges’ answers to produce its definite list.

When BT had asked the six-pack Khan about his ‘cool dude’ tag, he said, “It’s quite a strange feeling actually... I have never thought of myself as sexy in the conventional sense of the word as I know it! Actually with my friends I always joke that I’m sexy and cool, ‘cos, I never really believe it. All this must be largely because of me being part of a couple of popular films this year.”

SRK says he is a shy guy, “I’m personally quite shy to really be physically sexy onscreen, accept maybe in Dard-e-Disco, which also was a tongue-in-cheek take off on item numbers,” he says and trails off... “I don’t know. Personally if I was to look at myself, I think I’m as sexy as a bubble gum wrapper, but then kehte hain na, Khuda meherban, toh gadha pehelwan,” he laughed.

But what does he have to say about women who drool over him? “Women of my age haven’t made any indecent proposals to me so far but if it happens, I will stammer and probably faint.”

Last week when Bipasha had won Asia’s sexiest woman’s title, BT had predicted that the coveted crown for the hottest Asian hunk would either go to Salman Khan or the six-pack Khan, Shah Rukh. And right we were.

Mallika's Maan Gaye Mughal-E-Azam

The Mallika Sherawat-starrer will also have the song Pyaar kiya toh darna kiya although in a completely different format. The song, written by Sanjay Chhel and composed by Anu Malek, will be picturised on Mallika.

The film’s producer, Ratan Jain says, “Yes, we have a song loosely based on the classic song Pyaar kiya toh darna kya but it is a completely different tune from the original song. We will shoot for the song with Mallika some time next month.”

Says Malek, “Let me first make it very clear that no one can ever repeat or even remotely come close to the original song Pyaar kiya toh darna kya from Mughal-E-Azam. For me, that song is one of the best songs in the history of our film industry. It was not only melodious but also extremely well written. And who can forget Madhubala in the song?”

The music composer says that the new song is his interpretation of the song in today’s time. Although the new song has the famous lyrics, it is completely different as Maan Gaye Mughal-E-Azam is a comedy film in which Mallika and the rest of the cast play stage performers.

“My song is about one of their stage performances. I know there will be people who will be waiting to throw bricks at me for the song but I am sure I’ll also be appreciated for it. The song has a lot of funny lines,” adds Anu. Anu also says that his song is only meant to be funny and not derogatory.

Vibrators

If you turn on your TV and find something related to sex ,most of you would want to spice up things. You know what i am trying to say. And for people who are single or their partner is out of town, then Sex toys, lingerie, outfits and many more are things that anyone can use to satisfy his lecherous feelings and make his sex life a bit more interesting. You can use these sex toys to explore all the sex impulses in your body. The next question is where do I find them. The first thing that pops up in mind is that sex shop in the corner, but of you want to go there you must pass through all your neighbours houses who will eventually see you entering the shop. No worries, someone might say. I know just the perfect place on the other side of the city.

I am sure most people will feel uncomfortable to walk into a sex accessories store and get whatever they want. Internet is the solution. Many sex shops are out there with different varieties and of course different prices. One site that caught my eye is Vibrator.com. There you can find everything and I really mean it around sex. From all kinds of vibrators, some of them a little puzzling in shape to lubricants, videos, condoms, lingerie, latex, outfits, aphrodisiacs even furniture!
Women are a bit lucky because they have variety of sex toys available for them. But there are plenty of sex toys for men that you can buy from this online store. If you are a game freak then you are certain to enjoy those adult games. Dont play with those computer controlled opponents. Play with your body.


Of course, spicing up except from gadgets is about techniques. And what is the best guideline for this? The one and only Kama Sutra. For those that find Kama Sutra a bit advanced there are instructional sex videos that will get to thought the art of sex. And one thing before I forget it, this must be the cheapest sex online shop I have ever encountered. Give it a visit and I feel that you will agree with me.

Kate wants Mrs Doubtfire for kid

Kate Moss wants a Mrs Doubtfire-type nanny for her daughter. The supermodel employed Sadie Frost’s younger sister, Jade Davidson, to look after Lila Grace, her daughter with publisher Jefferson Hack, but is reportedly looking for a stricter childminder when Davidson leaves in January. A source close to the model said, “Kate wants someone who will look after Lila solidly for the next few years. We all joked about her looking for a Mrs Doubtfire type, but she said that’s exactly what she is looking for.” In Mrs Doubtfire, Robin Williams plays a father estranged from his children who dresses as an old woman to become their nanny. Lila’s most recent nanny quit after allegedly complaining about Kate’s hard-partying lifestyle.

Meanwhile, the 33-year-old model was unveiled as the new face of Donna Karan’s spring-summer 2008 collection yesterday. Karan said, “She’s wild, sexy and somebody who has the energy to hang out in the streets and to dance. She is a woman, who would have lived in that rawness, but with a polish at the same time. The clothes don’t wear her, she wears the clothes

AMD launches quad-core Phenom -- Intel shrugs

Just like we heard, AMD has gone live with Phenom. With it, we've got an entire new platform, codenamed "Spider." The Spider PC platform combines AMD Phenom quad-core processors, ATI Radeon HD 3800 series graphics, and AMD 7-series chipsets with CrossFireX and AMD OverDrive software for what AMD calls the "Ultimate visual Experience." That's the hype. Early reviews, however, are pretty much "underwhelmed" by the launch. Oh, the HD 3800 cards are ok (for mid-range graphics) and the 7-series chipset "is in good shape," but AMD needs to roll-on those clock speeds beyond the 2.2GHz Phenom 9500 ($251), 2.3GHz Phenom 9600 ($283) and 2.4GHz and 2.6GHz Phenon 9700 and 9900 (available in Q1 2008 for $300 and $350, respectively), and do it quick, if they hope to pull ahead of Intel's quad-core offerings. Unfortunately, that doesn't seem likely.

NFS Prostreet download links


EA's latest entry in the Need for Speed series, ProStreet, will almost certainly split the NFS audience. The series is moving away from the open-world, story-driven, cops-at-every-corner style to a more focused--and slightly more realistic--style of gameplay that is drawing no small amount of influence from what's happening in today's real-life tuner scene. And while that might raise the hackles of the NFS purists, for those new to the series or those looking to return to Need for Speed after skipping the last few incarnations, ProStreet could be a welcome change. We had a chance to spend some extended time with an updated build of the game to see how the new approach is working out.

Poker Rules - Texas Hold'em

In hold’em, players receive two downcards as their personal hand (holecards), after which there is a round of betting. Three boardcards are turned simultaneously (called the “flop”) and another round of betting occurs. The next two boardcards are turned one at a time, with a round of betting after each card. The boardcards are community cards, and a player may use any five-card combination from among the board and personal cards. A player may even use all of the boardcards and no personal cards to form a hand (play the board). A dealer button is used. The usual structure is to use two blinds, but it is possible to play the game with one blind, multiple blinds, an ante, or combination of blinds plus an ante.

Object: The best possible five card poker hand, using any combination of hole cards and community cards, wins the pot.

Betting Rounds


1.The dealer deals each player their own two cards face-down (pocket cards)
2.1st betting round
3.The dealer burns a card then turns over three community cards face-up
(the flop)
4.2nd betting round
5.The dealer burns another card then turns over 1 more community card (the turn,4th street)
6.3rd betting round
7.The dealer burns another card then turns over 1 final community card (the river,5th street )
8.Last betting round
9.Showdown (Every remaining player shows hand with bettor showing first)

All remaining players must use one of the following choices at the showdown:

Two pocket cards & three boardcards
One pocket card & four boardcards
No pocket cards & five boardcards (called playing the board)
Texas Hold'em Rules

1. If the first holecard dealt is exposed, a misdeal results. The dealer will retrieve the card, reshuffle, and recut the cards. If any other holecard is exposed due to a dealer error, the deal continues. The exposed card may not be kept. After completing the hand, the dealer replaces the card with the top card on the deck, and the exposed card is then used for the burncard. If more than one holecard is exposed, this is a misdeal and there must be a redeal.

2. If the flop contains too many cards, it must be redealt. (This applies even if it were possible to know which card was the extra one.)

3. If the flop needs to be redealt because the cards were prematurely flopped before the betting was complete, or the flop contained too many cards, the boardcards are mixed with the remainder of the deck. The burncard remains on the table. After shuffling, the dealer cuts the deck and deals a new flop without burning a card. [See – Explanations, discussion #2, for more information on this rule.]

4. If the dealer turns the fourth card on the board before the betting round is complete, the card is taken out of play for that round, even if subsequent players elect to fold. The betting is then completed. The dealer burns and turns what would have been the fifth card in the fourth card’s place. After this round of betting, the dealer reshuffles the deck, including the card that was taken out of play, but not including the burncards or discards. The dealer then cuts the deck and turns the final card without burning a card. If the fifth card is turned up prematurely, the deck is reshuffled and dealt in the same manner. [See – Explanations, discussion #2, for more information on this rule.]

5. If the dealer mistakenly deals the first player an extra card (after all players have received their starting hands), the card will be returned to the deck and used for the burncard. If the dealer mistakenly deals more than one extra card, it is a misdeal.

6. You must declare that you are playing the board before you throw your cards away; otherwise you relinquish all claim to the pot.

Troubleshooting for PAL and NTSC Xbox 360 Games

Some Xbox 360 games, such as Dead or Alive 4 or The Outfit, simply won't start, although your console is in perfect working condition, the disc(s) is/are not scratched, and your TV is working well too. However, some TV sets won't support the video output of the console. That's why this behavior occurs when you try to play an Xbox 360 game while the console is set to PAL 50 Hz.

For Standard definition TVs

To set your Xbox 360 console to PAL 60 Hz, follow these steps:
Turn on the Xbox 360 console.
In the Xbox Dashboard, select System, and then press the A button.
Select Console Settings, and then press the A button.
Select Display, and then press the A button.
Select PAL settings, and then press the A button.
Select PAL-60, and then press the A button.
When you are prompted to keep these new settings, confirm the settings, and then press the A button.

Note: Some older TVs do not support PAL 60 Hz. If you are not sure whether your TV supports PAL 60 Hz, contact the manufacturer of your TV.

For High definition TVs

To set your Xbox 360 console to PAL 60 Hz, follow these steps:
Turn off the Xbox 360 console.
Find the HDTV switch on the AV Connector, and then set the switch to TV.
Turn on the Xbox 360 console.
In the Xbox Dashboard, select System, and then press the A button.
Select Console Settings, and then press the A button.
Select Display, and then press the A button.
Select PAL settings, and then press the A button.
Select PAL-60, and then press the A button.
When you are prompted to keep these new settings, confirm the settings, and then press the A button.
Turn off the Xbox 360 console.
Set the HDTV switch on the AV Connector to HDTV.

For VGA cables

To set your Xbox 360 console to PAL 60 Hz, follow these steps:
Use an Xbox 360 Composite AV Cable or an Xbox 360 Component HD AV Cable. To do this, follow these steps:
Turn off the Xbox 360 console.
Remove the VGA cable, and then connect the Xbox 360 Composite AV Cable or the Xbox 360 Component HD AV Cable that came with your Xbox 360 system.
Connect the console to the TV, and then make sure that you set the HDTV switch on the AV connector to TV.
Configure the console to use PAL 60 Hz. To do this, follow these steps:
Turn on the Xbox 360 console.
In the Xbox Dashboard, select System, and then press the A button.
Select Console Settings, and then press the A button.
Select Display, and then press the A button.
Select PAL settings, and then press the A button.
Select PAL-60, and then press the A button.
When you are prompted to keep these new settings, confirm the settings, and then press the A button.
When you are prompted to keep these new settings, confirm the settings, and then press the A button.
Connect the VGA cable again to play the game.

Some users simply didn't see the setting for changing their PAL50/60 settings. Given that most of you connect to the TV set using a High Definition setting, to see the PAL settings, you'll need to switch your TV settings to standard definition.

For High definition TVs

To set your Xbox 360 console to PAL 60 Hz, follow these steps:
Turn off the Xbox 360 console.
Find the HDTV switch on the AV Connector, and then set the switch to TV.
Turn on the Xbox 360 console.
In the Xbox Dashboard, select System, and then press the A button.
Select Console Settings, and then press the A button.
Select Display, and then press the A button.
Select PAL settings, and then press the A button.
Select PAL-60, and then press the A button.
When you are prompted to keep these new settings, confirm the settings, and then press the A button.
Turn off the Xbox 360 console.
Set the HDTV switch on the AV Connector to HDTV.

For VGA cables

To set your Xbox 360 console to PAL 60 Hz, follow these steps:
Use an Xbox 360 Composite AV Cable or an Xbox 360 Component HD AV Cable. To do this, follow these steps:
Turn off the Xbox 360 console.

When you are prompted to keep these new settings, confirm the settings, and then press the A button.
When you are prompted to keep these new settings, confirm the settings, and then press the A button.
Connect the VGA cable again to play the game.

Just like current generation consoles, a console designed for North America (NTSC) won't work on Europe (PAL) for the simple reason that games are region locked. So if you get an US Xbox 360, you'll have to purchase NTSC games because those titles sold in Europe won't work on your North American Xbox 360.

Wilson, Jessica spotted together

Owen Wilson is reportedly dating Jessica Simpson. The Wedding Crashers’ actor has been on a string of dates with the blonde beauty since the pair worked on a Willie Nelson music video last month. They were first seen at Santa Monica’s Huntley Hotel and were recently spotted enjoying a meal at New York’s Waverly Inn, before heading for drinks at the exclusive Rose Bar.

Jessica was touching Owen’s arm and flipping her hair. Owen was charming, making Jessica laugh. It looked very much like they were on a date. Owen’s friends say the relationship is not yet serious or exclusive. Owen finds Jessica hilarious but he’s talking to lots of girls. Owen, who was rushed to hospital in August following a failed suicide bid, has been single since splitting from Kate Hudson earlier this year.

However, it was recently reported Kate was keen to rekindle her romance with the actor. Jessica was previously married to singer Nick Lachey. The pair famously starred in their own MTV reality show Newlyweds which documented their lives together. The pair officially divorced in 2006, and Jessica has since been linked to US musician John Mayer and comedian Dane Cook.

Police Gears

Since my childhood i have been fond of cop movies and i have dreamt of being one many times. More than their rugged looks and strong authority, it is their accessories that have attracted me a lot. Police attires and their weapons have their style and they give cops their charisma. To see a policeman take his gun out from his holster is a wonderful sight. I came across a site where you can buy all those police gears and accessories. From holsters to footwear, shirts to bags you can get any and every cop gear in this site. Galco holsters, bags, gun cases, ammo pouches are available in this site. This site is a repository of police gears and the best one of its kind.

10 Amazing Facts about Human Speech

1.The speech skill is a wonder. To produce a phrase, about 100 muscles of the chest, neck, jaw, tongue and lips must collaborate. Each muscle is a bundle made of hundreds or thousands of fibers. For the coordination of these muscles much more neurons than necessary are required for contracting the muscles from an athlete's feet. Just one motor neuron can trigger movement in the 2,000 muscular fibers existent on a calf muscle. But the neurons controlling the vocal cords or the larynx can be bound just one to two-three muscle cells.

2.Each spoken word or short phrase is accompanied by its own pattern of muscular movements. All the information necessary for speaking a phrase like "How are you?" is stored in the brain, in the speech area. But it's not about a fixed program. If you have a mouth wound impeding you to pronounce the words like you usually do, the movements are modified, allowing you to utter the words as closely as possible to normal.

3.A simple "Hallo" can transmit a lot of things. The voice's tone shows if the speaker is happy, pleased, bored, hurried, angry, sad, scared, aggressive or dominant and the intensity of these states; irony, affection, support or joke. The sense of a simple expression can be changed according to the rapidity of the movements and the fractions of seconds depending on how much the movement of different muscles lasts.

4.Humans can emit about 14 seconds per second, while isolated parts of the speech apparatus, like tongue, lips, jaws and others cannot execute more than 2 movements per second.

5.Early humans could have had a rudimentary speech system of visual, tactile and auditive calls, resembling animal communication. Speech appeared when we acquired the ability of representing objects through symbols and communicate to another individual our own mental creations. Our special brain enabled us to do this.

The first symbolic language emerged 2.5 million years ago, when Homo habilis started to fabricate the first stone tools. This ability surely played a key role in the development of symbolic communication. Articulating went perfecting till first Homo sapiens, 150,000 years ago, emitting sounds similar to that spoken by modern humans.

The mouth, nose and larynx ended by transforming themselves into a refined apparatus, in which the air was converted into vowels and consonants due to a better position of the tongue and lips. Moreover, the acquisition of a grammar and syntax was the result of an evolutionary process, while the writing ability was the consequence of the phonetic interpretation of the primitive icons.

6.Is speech born or acquired? Famous cases of children lost in the jungle before the age of three (when speech is largely acquired) and found several years later showed they had limited ability to learn the human speech and learning the speech requires early interaction with the others. The brain seems to have a period when it acquires speech and if this period is skipped over, the individual won't gain later the speech skill. The speech can develop only inside a community and at the age when the brain is growing.

7.The complex human speech has been linked to two brain nuclei controlling the language (articulating control, data storing and integration of the grammar rules) located in the left hemisphere of the cortex. What we want to say is initiated in an area of the left cortex called "Wernicke zone". This communicates with "Broca zone", involved with grammatical rules. Impulses go from these areas to the muscles involved in speech. These zones are connected with the visual system (so we can read), auditory system (so we can hear what others say, understand and answer) and also have a memory bank for recalling valuable phrases.

The same left hemisphere controls the movements of the right hand and 99 % of the humans are right-handed. The left hemisphere is also the center of analytical thinking, linked to logical abilities.

8.A sudden boost in the evolution of the speech was given by the emergence of the language some 50,000 years ago.

The modern 6,000 languages are believed to have originated in a sole mother language, as humans are believed to have formed just a small population of about 1,000 individuals 50,000 years ago. By now, three super-families of human languages exist.

9.Many ape individuals, of bonobo, chimps, gorillas or orangutans have been taught human sign languages or to manage graphic or computer symbols. Some can learn up to 1,000 words (up to 40 new words daily), but their temporal consciousness is null. Thus, in the end, it is all about brain capacities...

10.There are three major hypotheses about the way human languages emerged:

I.The ingestion by the first humans of psilocybin, a psychoactive alkaloid encountered in some mushrooms could have turned on newly evolved brain parts, like the Broca's area (linked to articulated speech) from the cortex. Neolithic wall paintings found at Tassili-n-Ajjer (Sahara) represent a shaman with the hands full of mushrooms, a fact that corroborates this theory.

II.The "evolutionist argument" speaks about brain innovations, mechanisms that induced a clear advantage. Speech could have boosted served reproductive exit and individual's survival.

III.A sole mutation could have triggered the speech ability. The human languages have a common structure which could be considered innate and characteristic to the species. In 2001, American researchers discovered on the chromosome 7 a gene whose lack amongst the members of a family produced severe difficulties for building phrases and understanding them, even if those persons were really intelligent. This shows that language is not connected to overall intelligence and also the fact that there is a genetic base for the speech.

Vijay rocks in Azhagiya tamil magan

Azhagiya Tamil Magan’ banks heavily on Vijay’s charm and performance. The Ilaya Thalapathy has lived up to the challenge created by the huge success of ‘Pokkiri’. He looks stylish and handsome. He lights up the screen by his dynamic performance.

Director Bharathan has exploited Vijay’s strengths well. He has provided a perfect entertainer for Vijay fans by giving ample chance, including dual role, to Vijay to come up with a stylish, action packed, romantic heroism.

Vijay plays both hero and villain. The first half is filled with romance and a mystery surrounding Vijay’s Extra Sensory Perception (ESP), while the second half is dominated by the tug of war between the two Vijays.

Let us first look at the storyline. Guru (Vijay) is an athlete and business management student. Abhinaya (Shriya) is the daughter of a business baron (Ashish Vidyarthi). They meet and, what else, fall in love.

The movie goes on to show how the lovers manage to get the permission of the parents. In the meantime, you get to see a different dimension in the tale while the romantic drama is unfolding. Vijay visualizes some bizarre scenes inside his mind. The scenes are disturbing and worse, they become true in the real life.

A psychiatrist (played by Dr. Rudran, a professional psychiatrist) confirms that it is ESP power and says that the imageries visualized by Guru would actually happen sooner or later. Unfortunately Guru visualizes another scene which he would never like to see happening. Sensing a danger to his sweetheart, he runs away to Mumbai from her to save her.

In Mumbai he stumbles upon a person, who looks alike himself. This gives him a different meaning of the horrible incident visualized by him. Before catching the man, played by Vijay again, Guru gets into an accident and the new man moves to Chennai where he is mistaken as Guru.

Stylish and care free Prasad, the look alike Guru, is a greedy person, who would do anything to earn money and enjoy life. Abinaya mistakes him for Guru and gets him to her house. Sensing his strength, Prasad decides to act as Guru and marry the rich Abhi.

The real Guru comes back and tells everyone the truth. But no one is ready to believe him, as he is outplayed by the wicked Prasad in each and every move. Finally the truth prevails but not before the tensed battle between the two with lot of twists and actions.

Before going in to details we must say that ESP is not a proven scientific fact and hence the director putting it as a matter of fact is unacceptable. We could have digested it if the director had presented it in a different manner without pretending to be scientific.

Coming back to the script, the director has come up with a new idea in form of ESP to provide twist in the tale. Though the idea of double role is not new, Bharathan had made the tough of war between the two interesting by conceiving a few interesting sequences.

The first half however, is dragging too much to the comfort of the audience. The efforts to convince the father and mother, one by one, play as speed breakers. The way the girl falls for the hero lacks imagination. The ESP imageries and Vijay fighting with Vijay have been executed well.

The director has done well in presenting Vijay - the USP of the film. The hero looks handsome, and stylish. The second Vijay in particular, is simply awesome in his styles. Vijay has presented a virtual treat for his fans by his mannerisms, actions, voice modulations, and body language.

Shriya, arguably possessing the most stunning and sexy figure among today’s heroines is simply ravishing. She and the director, of course, pretty well know that acting is not her forte and hence bank on her USP, which is her curvaceous body, to make the proceedings, especially the songs attractive. Namitha is effectively used for a scintillating song.

Santhanam as Guru’s friend doesn’t go overboard and provides some comical relief. Good performers like Sayaji Shinde and Ashish Vidyarthi are wasted in insignificant roles.

A.R. Rahman’s music is outstanding. In fact that songs sound better when heard – and seen – in the movie. ‘Maduraiku Pokaathey’ and ‘Valaiyapatti’ are quite attractive. The remix version is more convincing when seen in the context. The background score is effective in the scenes when Guru gets ESP images.

Balasubramaniam’s camera work is spectacular, especially in song sequences. The scenic beauty of Phuket Island and other locations are amazingly captured. Larencce has made wonders in choreographing. Vijay’s dancing movements are quite stylish. Overall, ‘Azhagiya Tamil Magan’ has nothing new to offer but the movie definitely entertains.

Namitha's glamour hits small screen


In Tamil cinema it has become a common habit for heroines to hit the small screen once their chances become dry in big screen. Devayani, Meena, Radhika, Sripriya, - the heroines who are busy in Tele Serials - the list is endless. A movie just takes to or three months while serials are eternal, which provides these actresses with continuous work and a steady income. Devayani has been earning sumptuous money and fame of her “Kolangal” Tele Serial which is No.1 in viewers rating among all Tele Serials. Namitha who is the buxom babe of the tamil film industry, has entered the small screen and has impressed all Tamil families. Kalaingar TV which was started to counter sun tv has managed to do a very good job of copying all the shows of sun tv, which itself plagiarized concepts from vijay tv. The Choreographers Kala, Brindha and Cine actress Simran were main juries for this reality show. After a couple of episodes of Simran was chucked and for the last few episodes of Manada Myilada, Namitha has been the special jury along with Kala and Brindha sisters. Namitha's entry into the show has increased the shows viewers rating drastically. Namitha is having a nice time in the show, jabbering whatever that she knows in tamil and has been entertaining us with her glamour.

Fashion tips for this season

Gone are the days when shoes and bags were only black, white and brown in hue. Accessories and shoes in bright shades like red, orange, purple, yellow, green are very much in this season as are the metallic colours like silver, gold, bronze. Bold shades are the colours to experiment this season, The accessories in metallic shades are very hot right now. You can also experiment with basic bright shades like red or green but those can be carried by very stylish women only.

Mix and match your bags and your shoes. If you are carrying a red bag, team it up with a golden, silver or a bronze pair. There is no need to match your shoes and accessories completely, but a nice contrast will do.

If you want to wear something like a yellow shoe, be careful about the clothes you wear. A yellow shoe can be worn with a black dress. Even a red dress can look great, but you should be careful about the shade of red and yellow. You can also carry a denim blue bag or wear blue shoes with a green outfit or vice versa. Such combinations also look cool.

In shoes, heels are very high this season. Also closed shoes or open toed ones are in trend. For bags, large clutch bags are perfect for day time, while smaller, embellished ones are perfect for the evenings.

Microsoft is offering us the chance to play one of the three xbox mini games. These are small devices you may find in your Kellogg's cereal box and you'll be able to play either Disco Mania, Spaceship Blaster or Mystic Castle, if you're a fan of such arcade titles.

This offer is currently available in Germany . None of the three titles above are deep or challenging. Microsoft and Kellogs have collaborated just to offer us some cheap gaming experience. Disco Mania, for example requires you to push d-pad buttons and imitate some dance patterns. Space Blaster requires you to dodge enemy ships and last, but not least, Mystic Castle will have you exploring a castle and collecting gems.
