Kaatru Veliyidai

Kaatru Veliyidai

(Spoiler Free Opinion)



Mani sir’s film is a celebration for cinephiles. The euphoria is so much that the entire industry wants ManiRatnam to emerge as a winner.


First of all this isn’t one persons opinion, I promise you this is one of the best Manirathnam’s movie ever. I feel like the other people saw a completely different movie.


Having said that, what’s amusing about Mani sir is his ability to extract the visual output from cinematographers. Cinematography is a big asset, no surprises because Mani loves his shots to be picture perfect. AR Rahman’s soundtrack is the icing on the cake. 


Like most of his films, Mani sir uses nature as a powerful tool for narration. Visually, Kaatru Veliyidai is beautiful, beyond anyone’s imagination.

With Mani sir, the premise doesn’t matter, the characters do. And the way they fall in love.



Conclusion: Kaatru Veliyidai is for grownup audience. Others please ignore watching it.

3 years down, forever to go.

Some stories don’t have a clear beginning, middle, and end. Life is about not knowing, having to change, taking the moment and making the best of it, without knowing what’s going to happen next.

I always believe that most everything comes from nothing. An idea is easy to copy, but experiences are very hard to replicate.

It’s not everyone who has a team who is reliably kind and understanding, and I feel that I’ve been so much blessed.

Some of my friends have left ZOHO but are still in constant touch with me.

Thank you for the 3 years of warmth, friendship, and support. I couldn’t have done it without you, nor can I take the next steps without your help.

There’s never been completion in my career because I’ve always been striving for that next thing.

Thanks folks 🙂

15 Shades of Aditya Dhotre

Disclaimer: This presentation has nothing to do with the movie ‘50 shades of grey’ please do not misinterpret.

Why the title is so personal; why should I share my experience about my design career?

Before I let you know the answer you should know little things about me, I would love to introduce myself as an engineering graduate; yes an engineer who engineered himself as a designer. I don’t have design degree I’m a self-taught designer and I don’t settle in learning new things because I don’t have that black hat with a tassel which every degree holder has.

How many of you feel that you’re an engineer and you are struggling to chase your dreams?

Coming back to the title; this presentation is so personal because it will make you relate yourself and you can see some of your shades in me.

I was not so confident that I will become a designer, I was a coward and introvert person who couldn’t take a brave decision or speak or attend any meetups/debates.

So what changed me?

A movie, yes you heard it right; can you believe a movie called 3 idiots have given me the courage to become what I want? but that was the main reason who I’m today.
Sometimes we all need is an inspiration or a push and I believe inspiration can come in any medium.

I would like to quote a line from a movie 3 idiots which turned my life upside down.
Rancho: “Pursue excellence, and success will follow”

These words became my mantra.

In this presentation, each shade refers to thoughts.

Shades = Thoughts
