The ‘behindwoods.com’ columns

My first was on Ajith Kumar, the Tamil actor. Cynically this write-up was meant as bait for fans of the actor, who were visiting the website in droves. The column was written ahead of the release of Vedalam in 2015.

Post Sethu every actor in Tamil cinema took it upon himself to grow a beard. Here’s a short examination of why.

The Force Awakens was the first of the sequels. ‘Behindwoods’ gave me the column as I was fanatical about the series.

My first tutor of James Bond films was my Dad. He is no more. But every new Bond movie will remind me of him. I am grateful for the opportunity to write about Bond. This write-up was timed to be published ahead of Spectre.

The last one was about the rise of anti-heroes, starting with Nayakan. This subject could, in fact, take up an entire book.
