Noticing a disturbing trend in thamizh movies of late - justifying anti-social, delinquent behaviour by young people as being natural for that age. Dhanush, especially, must win the lifetime achievement award for portraying the most such roles. For example, in his Yaaradi Nee Mohini, there is a line at the beginning of the film that translates to, "... I was just like every other regular teenager... stealing from my dad's wallet, drinking with friends..." etc. I cannot help but fear life will imitate art here.
I find it extremely difficult to stomach instances of a beautiful girl falling in love with a rowdy/porukki/uncouth/unemployed guy who speaks pages of dialogue to justify his stealing parents' money, smoking, drinking, eveteasing, disrespecting elders - and actually winning the girl's heart.
And after watching Santhosh Subramaniam (Bommarillu in Telugu), I realise I cannot stand instances of guys finding hyper, demented, babytalk-spouting, incessantly chattering girls - CUTE! Genelia's character in that movie makes Sridevi's character in Moonram Pirai (Sadma in Hindi) appear mentally balanced.
