Catch the Sparkle – Hard Light for Sequins: OnSet ep. 233

Catch the Sparkle – Hard Light for Sequins: OnSet ep. 233


Hey this is Daniel Norton. I’m here in my studio in New York City with Paulina and today we’re doing kind of a fashion shot. We had this a beautiful Fila sparkly … I love my sparklies… so we wanted to play with this, and create kind of a cool shot for it. It’s kind of sporty… but it’s kind of like … you might wear it out to the club right? So you know I mean… if you go to the gym in this you’re actually not working out, we know that right? So it’s more of a fashionable piece, and since we weren’t like in a cool location to shoot or whatever when we’re in the studio, we decided to mix it up a little bit. I did originally shoot it maybe like on white, but it was kind of boring and catalogue… so we decided to create something that a bit of a sunlight feel… be using my 400 HMI from Dedolight up there, and we’ll start there and I’ll show you guys what we got. So we get Pauline into the light… so it’s gonna be very dramatic right? We’re gonna have a dramatic light coming from one side, so we do have to watch how she keeps her face but this is gonna help the shape… it’s also – the specularity of it is going to… you’ll notice…. it’s going to cause the sparkles to sparkle on her arm and we’re gonna play around a little bit with that right? When you’re showing something that is sparkly or reflective… show it as sparkly, clients are always like that’s too reflective… No it’s like… it’s supposed to look like that right? I mean so you want to let them know like that’s the point right? So that was a little bit boring though with the gray background, so I decided to add some color, and there’s a lot of different ways to do it. I had these really fun glass filters from Dedolight as well, this is in my 200 HMI… and you can see that this… I’ve got it in here, it’s blue, so give a good, good contrast… so we can sharpen or defocus it as we want. I’m gonna go a little sharp … what do you think? It was like a.. like some kind of weird… like modern effect, so I think that could be interesting in the background. So we’ll see what that looks like… by the way I’m at f/2… so that, even though it’s sharp back there… It’s gonna be more or less out of focus. Good you got to keep that in mind… when you’re doing this stuff right? Your… see now we’ve added this like graphic right? So there she is … she’s looking great she’s got some sparkles on her, got some sort… goes on her arm, the background has this graphic feel to it, which is kind of cool, and yeah I mean, some people would stop there, but we don’t do that right, we do not stop there… we want to add a little fill because it’s a little dark on the side, look when she’s facing me… we’re gonna have some issues with the shadows, so I could just put a regular reflector in there… however for this week only on sale… Red reflector right? Red reflector… red outfit, we’re gonna fill our shadows in with a bit of a red color… So you could also if you want to… use an active feel, like a flash, you could just put a red yellow on right, but this is a nice way to do it, nice and simple because remember whenever you are reflecting anything whatever color the object is is gonna reflect back. So like negative fill reflects back black right? Because it’s negative. Positive fill like, like white cards reflect back white… but a red one will be red, so we can see I took two pictures for some reason.. We can see neutral and then we can see red, and that looks really nice with the skin tone… it looks really nice for this whole thing. She’s looking all athletic… and at the club, so we’ll shoot a few like that… I’m just gonna work through it, I’m using the Nikon Z6 which is kind of nice, because I’m seeing my exposure as it goes like kind of like adjust if need be… but I’m also tethered, that’s nice, actually block her face a little bit, that was kind of
cool. I’m either gonna love that or hate it. It’s hard to say yeah, there we go, depends how much sparkles we get… a little bit more in front, there we go, chin up a smidge… good. I’m going to try to see what that looks like, sometimes you gotta mix it up a little bit… sometimes it doesn’t work, alright so, no we won’t do that, okay, good, good, good, chin up I’ll shoot a couple more… cause I get paid by the frame… there we go, one more like that, let’s just go straight on to me now… like oh yeah tough, that’s it, good, like that, beautiful. So I already walked away, because I knew I was gonna be good, because I have my fill, there is enough detail here on her eye. She looks great, the shirt looks great, it’s all nice…going to do one quick thing I’m just gonna defocus the background, just curious, just cuz we can… for one more. I like it because I think it works with the pattern and everything, but I feel like if you want it to be more clean, bring your arm back a smidge right? There good, now it’s more out of focus right… we can affect that.. actually do it with norm, because straight on I think it’s too much shadow on your face. Yeah that’s perfect, we can focus on here good. I’m cropped in a little bit more.. like a portrait to see what it looks like. A lot of times I’m trying to figure out exposure guys, I’ll come in close and shoot the face, because that’s kind of what’s important there, and now back up and get the whole thing. Good, like that, one more, good, last one, good, fantastic, well looks good to me, lots of good options. Okay my first option.. my first inclination was correct, I definitely liked the in focus in the background, I think it works cuz this whole thing is very graphic right? We’ll do it, we’re making a graphic look with the shadows and stuff, so they have a smoothy autofocus background. Didn’t really work, so play around, that’s why you have different tools to work with, so when you’re working with something that’s like a fashion item, think about like the vibe of it, like that’s what I always do when I walk into this. This is like sporty, right? So I want to shoot sporty sporty… even though it’s got a little glam to it, and you want to take advantage of things that are inherent in the garment right? This garment is sparkly, when it gets hit by a hard light, so we don’t necessarily want to throw a big soft box on it. It’s gonna kind of.. not have that effect that we have here.. So play around, have a lot of fun, that’s what fashion is about… So I’m gonna put Paulines information in the description, make sure you follow her, follow me DanielNortonPhotographer. Subscribe to AdoramaTV, hit the bell and everything, and I’ll see you next time OnSet.

You are My Joy of Life One year. The time has gone fast. Every day and minute
of that one year has taught me a lot. But I still haven’t learned
how to live without her. This is the day,
that changed my life. You want to hear it? Come on, I’ll tell you my story. My name is Adhith. I’m a second year engineering student
at Aarhus University in Denmark. These are my parents.
They are the reason I went to school. My fathers goal is that I get better
grades than the neighbour’s son. Typical family… Geethen, Prathap and Sanjeev
are my friends. If you want to get to know us,
you need to meet this guy. Do you know who he is? Every movie needs a comedian, right?
His name is Banana. He has a phobia of banana theft. Don’t you get it? He is a banana thief. You want to know, how we know him? We did something crazy,
and stuck needles in a banana. Just take a look at us
getting into trouble. – Hold on. – Don’t move!.
– Go, go, go… Look, guys.
Banana fell and hit his head. Don’t you move!
I’m gonna get you. That really made him angry. He even broke the window
on a cop car, and went to jail. I’m always up to no good, so my
dad beat me with an indian broom – and forced me to send an application
to go study in America. That’s why I’m taking this picture. Hello? Yeah, what’s up, dad? Yeah, I took the picture.
I’m on my way now. I was busy.
Not with sending the application, – – but busy partying with my friends.
We throw a party for everything. What’s up, baby! You make my heart beat. Even the gleam from your jewelry – – pulls me towards you. Oh, my darling star,
you fill my every thought. Can I be yours forever? She enchants me with her smile.
Spoils me with her moves. Seduces young hearts into exile. Seduces young hearts into exile. Her presence consumes all. Let me surprise you – – close to my heart. You are born for me, my gem. I will forever be yours. You and I are the perfect match. Get ready for our wedding night. One, baby, one. Two, baby, two. Three and four, I know you want more. Come on, my sexy girl. Dance with me,
and seduce me with your playful moves. She’s the shining diva,
Dolce and Gabbana. The style is Gucci, full out monarchy!
Oh no! All the jewels in the world – – gets prettier on you, – – so even the most beautiful goddess – – becomes jealous. I’ll capture the suns rays,
knit you a beautiful dress, – – and adorn you,
so even beauty will gasp. Oh, my darling star,
you fill my every thought. Can I be yours forever? What’s up, baby!
Your smile makes my heart skip a beat. Even the gleam from your jewelry, – – pulls me towards you. Oh, my darling star,
you fill my every thought. Can I be yours forever? I saved my application, – – and to save myself from dad – I was in a hurry
to make it to the mailbox. What happened? What shall I do? Hey! Be careful! Hello? Don’t! Step down. Stay there. Hey! Hey! Stop, stop. Be careful. Shit. Hey! Hey! Wait! Hello? It was the last day to send the application – – and I couldn’t make it. Dads dream of America
was destined to be nothing more. That’s how she entered my life.
Like a bomb. Who is she? So beautiful, – – but I think she’s an alcoholic. Nothing else? I’m not some hero, who will
fight ten men to save her, – – but on the other hand, my heart
wont allow her to be left like this. – Who are you?
– I’m… – Why are you carrying me?
– It’s… It’s because… – Have you been drinking?
– Have I been drinking? – Are you going to rape me?
– Rape? – Hey, be quiet.
– Help! Rape, rape! Come here! I have no idea,
why this only happens to me. – That’s him.
– Hands up! Hands up! Hands up! Sir! Don’t get the wrong idea.
I haven’t done anything wrong. I swear,
I would never harm her. That is not the only crime. You tried to rape the girl,
while she was unconscious. That is a breach of the law. What are you saying, sir?
That didn’t happen. You must believe me! I’m a good boy. I won’t be able to show my face, sir! You have to wait until we interrogate
the girl, but she’s still intoxicated. – You have to wait in detention.
– But sir! It’s your fault that I’m here.
You’re gonna pay! Move, you idiot! I’m sorry, I won’t do it again. Is he home, honey?
That useless kid you gave birth to. He’ll be back soon. Why are you drinking
so early in the morning? Why am I drinking?
Your son made me into an alcoholic. I had a sister, she ran off with
someone. Then I started drinking. My little brother also ran off with
some girl, and I continued. Now my only son is… That’s him. – Just relax. I’ll deal with him.
– Leave me alone. Tell me first,
did you mail your application? – Sure, mom. Just open the door.
– Hold on… Which night club did you come from,
and who did you dance with? I’m not… Die, you bastard! What! Are you calling me a bastard? Have you also been drinking? Let me get the honour of killing you
before he does. Mom? – What are you doing? Stop!
– Don’t try and stop me. Just wait, I’ll kill you. Did you run away? Just you wait!
You’ll come home. What have you done?
Did you kill my son? Where is he? – He got away.
– Are you trying to kill my only son? Wipe out my lineage? I’ll set you straight! – Oh no, leave me alone!
– Stop, stop! – Hello?
– Shoba. Shoba? Who is that? You have my phone,
and you’re asking me who I am! You moron! Idiot!
Where were you trying to carry me? – Did you also try and rape me?
– Hello? Come out and open the door. – Open the door!
– Open the door? – Which door?
– Obama’s. Yours, dummy. – Open your fathers house door.
– I’m on my way. – Is it you?
– Yes… Give me my phone. Sorry. Follow me. – Where are we going?
– Just follow me! What happened yesterday? I was on my way to send
my application to America. There was a tall bridge, and there
you were, staggering at the rails. I thought you were going to fall,
so I ran to help you, and then… I yelled rape?
I remember that. You look cuter now,
than when you were drunk. Sorry, are we dating?
Idiot! Are you brain dead? If a stranger tries something with
an unconscious girl, you yell rape! Get out. Out! – Don’t ever help a girl.
– But I didn’t… Is that understood?
Now go home without causing trouble. I thought, she was gonna
thank me for saving her, – – but instead she yelled at me. She always used to say the
exact opposite of what I said. Did another problem just enter
my already confusing life? Adhith? Adhith!
You’re mine now. I’ve been looking for you. You’re to blame for all my bad luck! Today I’ll get my vengeance. Just wait and see. Hello?
Girls only look for problems. Poor us. Without knowing stuff like that
we get into trouble. Like me now. I’m waiting for you at the Van Gogh bar.
You got five minutes. At Van Gogh?
What do you want? Just get over here,
and I’ll tell you. Who the hell is he?
Run, Banana! Before the cops arrive. – Why did you ask me here?
– Follow me. Can you please tell me,
why you asked me here? I just wanted to see your face. His movie is showing next week. Our threat mail needs
to arrive before, – – or we can’t ruin his life.
We need to do something. Why worry about that?
Let’s just make pirated DVDs. That’s old school, this is new.
We need to make people boycott. Threat mails, websites, articles,
e-mails, texts, we use everything. Technology has made it easier. We don’t care about technology.
We’re not changing. If one of us becomes famous
we’ll lose the respect of the people. We need to make sure
that doesn’t happen. – Let’s get to work.
– Hey. Are you any better? Drinking all day
and talking about ruining lives. Putting a stop to people’s happiness. You’re pigs!
Why are you wearing a suit and tie? If I hear that kind of talk again,
I’m going to beat you! It’s our right.
Who do you think you are? – Don’t make me angry.
– Can nobody else get angry? Do you know what happens,
when I get angry? Stop! Stop!
Silence. Silence. If you go to a bar, you drink and leave.
Why are you fighting? Love. Love is the greatest in the world. If you destroy love,
I’ll be a monster. A murder will happen! – Get out of here!
– You don’t know who we are! Just wait! Although she drinks,
she cares about the community. It’s hard to be her. A feeling of pride on one side
and annoyance on the other – – because of the drinking
and her insulting nature. Why are you crying? Here, dry your eyes. Everybody’s watching. You don’t know… He left me. I can’t take it! Why does she keep passing out? Excuse me?
Excuse me? Hello… The psychological need for a human
is important for the engineering theory. We need a home to feel safe,
which we need to prioritise, – – and at this point… We see the theory of Abraham
Maslows pyramid of human motivation. “Come outside. Shoba.” If I don’t leave,
she’ll probably come in here. I’ll text that I’m in class,
and that I’ll come out afterwards. Up here we have the self actualization
and the self esteem… Hi, Shoba. – What are you wearing?
– What about it? What will people think? Yes, what will they think? Tell me. They’ll think we’re
ruining our culture. Culture? Ruin?
Because of me? Just ask Google,
it’ll tell you the truth. You’re using the most time on the
internet watching adult films. You get drunk and make up
rumours about girls. Then you dress nice and point fingers
at others in the name of culture. Culture is the way, the world is viewed. Fix yourselves first,
then the rest will come into place. Stay away. What made her so angry? Hey, Shoba! – Idiot.
– Shoba, wait. Why are you so angry? You can wear anything you want.
You can wear a bikini. You’d like that, wouldn’t you? – Idiot!
– Don’t… Are you the lesson of my life? Am I now floating on your reflections? Are you the lesson of my life? Am I now floating on your reflections? Are you my reflection? Is it me I’m seeing in your close-up? Every day the pleasure
of life blooms – – by the flattering captivation
of friendship. Although you make a mistake,
friendship is by your side, guiding you. The purest of friendship has no flaws. Magic exists because of you. Life alters like a game. Let’s laugh and cry together. Friendship gives joy of life. Are you the lesson of my life? Am I now floating on your reflections? Magic exists because of you. Life alters like a game. Let’s laugh and cry together. Friendship gives joy of life. Magic exists because of you. Life alters like a game. Let’s laugh and cry together. Friendship gives joy of life. The days were colorful. Life was great with her. It’s like watching a thriller. You never know what’s going to happen. Hey, Shoba. – What are you doing?
– It’s a beautiful park. So peaceful. Do you know how happy I am? As soon as I got her,
I felt the urge to write a poem. – Here, read it.
– A poem? Do you know, who I am?
Then come, if you dare. If you knew who I was, then…
You hung up already? Don’t you worry,
I’ll stop by. You shouldn’t throw cigarettes
in the park. Clean it up! Well then, here comes the queen. It’s a public place. You can’t
smoke here. Clean it up, now! – Where is the public place?
– Hey! This is my mouth and my cigarette. I can smoke and throw it where I like. – You clean it up.
– Ohh yeah! Why are you hitting me? It’s my hand.
I can hit where I like. You just wait till you’re
in my neighborhoods. You dummy! If I see you again
I’m gonna kill you! Hey, buddy!
Where are you off to? You’re polluting the park?
Interests, taxes and bribes! You idiot!
Who told you, you could smoke? Have you read the poem? You said the woman
was the answer for innovation, – – but made her powerless
through gender discrimination. You admired and thereby chained
her to your ideal image of a woman. You are the slave in your own mind. Don’t believe we will surrender
to your powerless ideals of woman. Relationships, engagement,
marriage, family. Life has become a burden
with all these liabilities. We liberate ourselves from your shackles,
making us equal in every aspect. Hence forth we create the history. The Earth Mother carried you. You were attracted by virgins. You only fell in love with beauty,
and formed a relationship of lust. Your focus were only
of the physical needs. When the lust was done,
you beat and abused her. You raped woman and justified it
by the way they were dressed, – – and then laughed at their problems. You incurred her faults
in every possible way. Imagine. Imagine! Your mother is also a woman. Listen!
Starting today, your reign is over. From now on the woman will hold
the mans place and rule the world. She will eradicate gender differences,
and make the world a better place. She will have the neglected respect
and lead the entire human race. In her world no injustice exists.
The gods will follow her trails. Everything and everyone will be her,
and men will be powerless. It is only the woman
who has the right to give life. She will be the definition of life. She is a warrior. I understood
her views on the community that day. She wants woman to be
apparent everywhere, – – but she’s a bit aggressive
with her wishes. I’ve often ignored her poems,
because I thought they were vulgar. But after reading this,
got a deeper understanding of her. I love you. Guys… Why did you bring Oldie? He’s gonna end up dying
with all that drinking. Friends. Only marriage
has an age limit. Not love. There are two types of men: The ones who dare to say “I love you”,
and the ones who are afraid. – Do you dare to say, “I love you”?
– What are you asking! How can you ask him that? My blood is boiling. Don’t waste time. Tell her you love her now! Are you drinking, while we are
having a serious conversation? But guys, when did I said
that I love her? Ok. What now? – I have to say it, don’t I?
– Yes. – You’ll never do it.
– I’m an alpha lion. I’ll say “I love you” right now! I just have to say it to somebody. She looks hot.
I’ll tell her. Hey, I have to tell you something.
Come with me. So you think I’m scared.
Watch this. I love… – What are you saying?
– I love Jesus! Where did you find the courage
to say “I love you”? If you say that to anyone
again, I’m going to kill you. – Where did she come from?
– Get back here. How come this only happens to me? Something is wrong. She’s coming
this way, and she looks mad. – Shoba?
– Yes. Oh no, she’s gonna kill me! – She’s on her way. What should we do?
– Don’t tell her I’m here! She’s here. – Where is he?
– Who? Oh, you’re the one drinking on their
tab and giving bad advice? I’m gonna beat you! I want to see him. Otherwise I’m gonna beat you too. You and your hat, you rascal! Wow, she’s mad.. Thank god she left. To be brave, I was gonna say
“I love you” to a random girl, – – but fate brought me
straight to her. We started early in the
morning with a whisky, – – and tried to figure out
what I was gonna do. For every action of ours,
there will always be some meaning to it. You didn’t just make
a simple mistake. If you want to understand her mind,
the right path is to do something sentimental. Who is this clown? No matter which angle you see it from,
the statue looks like a pig. Denmark made a statue
in honor of a pig. Very good, Denmark.
I like Denmark. Scene one, take two. There you are. Love in the heart. – – will never be known by the kidneys. Sorry, sorry,
will never be known by the brain. Who said that? – Who?
– You? – No, my friend. Sokrates. – Where did you find him?
– You don’t know him? You stupid fool. That’s Climax.
Who is it? Ohh right, you. You have to say:
Love Climax, Karthik. By using a climax,
he can open a girls mind. Alpha lion, take this… Suicide, suicide… Guys… Does an alpha lion commit suicide? I’m responsible for your safety.
I don’t run away, like somebody. Once you start acting,
you need to give it your all. You need to forget everything!
Family, love, devotion, everything! Acting, acting. It’s like… Hey, Climax,
are you teaching him how to act? Who did you ask about acting?
The cloud rains and the earth sprouts! Clapboard, camera. Who do you ask about acting? Suicide?
I’ll do it! That’s right.
You’re going dangling. Find your phone and call her. The more his legs shake from pain,
the more her heart beats for him. Once he sees her worry,
he’s gonna sympathize. At that moment the love
will be floating around them. Exactly. Hold tight. Ohh, that was just a dream. Sorry, sorry.
I flew into dream world. If only a man could understand,
if only a man could understand. Mr. director? You’re the director, sir. Yes, I am… Start the camera,
action, rolling, come on. Shoba, please forgive me… I can’t live without seeing you, – – and can’t live with seeing you. So I’m killing myself.
Sorry. – The cops are coming!
– Cops! Cops! – Run, run!
– Hurry, before the cops come. Hey! That’s my bike.
Don’t. Stop him! “What do we do? He was sleeping, but
only you were caught.” (old Tamil song) Why does this only happen to me? Are you happy now? Oh No. Hallo? What? – Excuse me, Shoba.
– Yes? Sign, please. Thank you. Hello sir. Follow me. Idiot. You should be ashamed. You! You Would hang yourself?
Do you think I’m stupid? Do you think, I’m gonna bail you out
every time you go to jail? You don’t think I have
anything better to do? Rascal. Idiot! Do you only know
about love and suicide? You’re getting worse by the day. Listen up! What can I say? Look, there’s a cab. Get in. – That’s it?
– Why are you laughing? Close your eyes and get in. If you open your eyes,
I’ll cut them out! Now go. Will you tell me what you
think of me then? Do what I say,
then we’ll see. – Your plan’s working, Love Climax. What? What are you talking about? – My tongue slipped.
– It’s been doing that a lot lately. – Okay, okay.
– Go! Wait a minute. Ready? One, two, three!
Go, you idiot. – Driver, go!
– Mom? – How are you, mom?
– A dramatic suicide? – Don’t hit me!
– Don’t tell me. – That’ll teach you.
– You’re hurting me, mom. Are you even focusing
on your studies? Mom! Mom! I said, she’s different, right? Not only did she tell my mom. She also sent me a text,
saying we should celebrate her birthday. She’s gotten in a lot of
difficult situations because of me, – – so her birthday had to be
different. A surprise. I wanted to take her to the park
and give her a present, – – while I wished her
a happy birthday. How do I afford it?
What are friends for? Why did you bring me here
to celebrate my birthday? To celebrate you. The gate is locked.
How do we get in? – We climb the fence.
– Why are you always so difficult? Just come on. Well, go on then. Be careful. Quiet. Adhith? Adhith? Why aren’t you answering? Who is he?
Interrupting my plan. If you make a sound,
I’ll shoot you. Get up. Come on, go. Go! go! – This way.
– Please god, help me! Hey! Hey! Hey! Where are you going?
It’s this way. Come on, move it! Go! go! Stop. Sit down, now. – Sit down.
– Sit down, sit down. Why are you standing? Sit down. – Sit down, sit down.
– Sorry, sorry. Who are you? Me? Who am I? Who am I? Who am I?! Insane… insane. I’m a mentally ill soldier. You know how I got sick? Do you? What’s that music?
What’s happening? There’s a temple nearby.
I think there’s a wedding. That’s not just any wedding. That’s my girlfriends wedding. It’s my lovers wedding, – – and I’ve broken out
of prison to kill her. The cops are right outside. They don’t understand my situation. In a short time, she’s about to get married. But first, she needs to come here. Over here! I love her more than anything. She betrayed me. Why? I want to know. Or she’ll die with me here. Why does she have to die? No! The pain in my heart. You wouldn’t know. I don’t wanna live anymore. I have no choice but to kill her. Sir easy. What do we need to do
for you to let us go? I like you. Very good. You understand my situation. You both need to bring her, – – or I’ll kill you both. What did we do, sir?
Why kill us? No, no. No reason. Death does not need a reason.
You can die for no reason. We’ll both get her, sir. Fine, but if you both leave,
then who’s gonna stay here? – Let her stay, I’ll go.
– You’re going to leave me with him? No, you stay. Let her go. Fine, I’ll go. What do I do,
if she doesn’t want to come? His life is not in my hands,
but yours. I don’t want to hear wedding music,
and she can’t wear the ceremonial chain. Because then… I’ll kill him. – Pray to god.
– She can’t make it in time. Then that’s your destiny.
What are you standing there for? Go! Why are you just sitting there? Go!
Hurry, come on! Oh no! Oh no! Adhith! Adhith! Which way do I go?
Which way do I go? – Everything looks alike.
– She won’t make it. – Hands up!
– Don’t move. Move, move. Hey, shh. I hear someone.
Get up, we need to move. – Hands up!
– Don’t move. – Don’t move.
– I’ll shoot you. Let him go. – Surrender!
– Do you hear us? – Don’t shoot.
– I asked you to get her, – – and you come back with the police?
– I didn’t call them! She needs to come here now… – But why?
– I’ll shoot him! Why do we need to die
because your girlfriend left you? No more talking!
Shut up! She ruined my life! – So you want to destroy others?
– Drop the weapon. Is that the solution?
Is that the meaning of love? Listen to me!
Why do you wan’t to shoot her? Love isn’t about taking life,
but giving. You need to be willing to give
your own life for love. Not kill it, like you’re doing now. Without knowing all this,
why do you love? If you kill her,
will your love live on? – I’ll shoot him!
– Don’t! – Listen to us. Drop the gun.
– Stay back! I’ll shoot. – Give yourself up.
– Don’t shoot. – Don’t shoot me, sir.
– Drop the gun. Why don’t you understand? I don’t know how to
make you understand. Shut up! If your love is strong,
it will never die. It will last forever. If your love is real,
she has the same pain as you. Since she bears the pain
and marries another man. There has to be a reason Why don’t you understand? If she’s only allowed to live
with you, it’s not true love. Your hearts need to connect.
Then the love will never die. Not even if she marries another man. Why do you always see things
from your side? Why can’t you try to
see it from her side? If you still think love
is related to physical needs – – then shoot him! But if you think it’s about
the soul, then please. Put down the gun! If you still don’t understand,
then shoot me first. Shoot me first. I’m sorry, soldier. Sorry. My mind didn’t changed
because of my girlfriend, – – but because of what you
said about love. Goodbye. I’m sorry.. – Shoba. Thank you. You saved me.
– Get off. Leave me alone. Wait, Shoba! Happy birthday. Happy birthday. After the last incident, – I began to understand Shoba better. I’ve seen a lot of movies
and read many books on love and life, – – nothing has had big impression, – – but everything she said
kept repeating in my head. I started to like her
on a different level. It was also this day, that I
waited on her for the first time. Have you been waiting long? I stopped by the flower shop
and got you a flower. Here you go. It’s beautiful. Thank you. Why are you destroying the flower?
The beauty is letting it bloom. Okay, now that you have given me
a flower, I need to give you something. What do you want? Nothing big. I’ve written a poem. Give it to Nivas Raja and ask him
to make some cool music for it. Believe me,
it’ll be the hit of the year. Here you go. Come on. Nivas Raja? But he’s a monster! One small mistake is enough
to set him off. Should I really take
that risk for a flower? Nivas Raja? Here I come. I better bribe the assistant
with this honour silk. You are the right poet. Just go in and say that you are
Kannadasa Thasan. I’ll handle the rest.
You are the right poet. The recipe of victory,
life’s questions, – – mechanical human,
Siva Sambo. The temple of humans,
art of the eye, Siva Sambo. – Siva Sambo. (old Tamil song)
– Did you call, sir? Are you the only one in the world
named Siva Sambo? Go away. – Interrupting while I’m making music.
– But sir… The poet, Kannadasa Thasan
has come to see you. Kannadasa Thasan? – Sir, here you go.
– Who? Are you Kannadasa Thasan? – Bananas.
– Let me see. There were two bananas here. One’s here,
but where is the other? Not that one. That’s one,
where is the other? I’ll kick your butt. One’s here.
Where is the other? – Stop! I’ll beat you up!
– All that over a banana. What is he doing here? The recipe of victory,
life’s questions, – – mechanical human,
Siva Sambo. The temple of hearts, witnesses
of memories, mechanical human. Siva Sambo. Siva Sambo, Siva Sambo. Did you call, sir? Who in the world gave you
the name, Siva Sambo? If I see him,
I’ll kill him where he stands. A fresh young poet
is here to see you. Who? Is it mr. Vaali? Pa Vijay? Or Pulamai Piththan?
Who is it? No, it’s mr. Vaali Thasan. – Vaali Thasan?
– Yes. Hello, sir. – My name is…
– I know, Vaali Thasan. Let me see your poem. The other guy took a banana.
You look like you could take it all. It’s an uncertain world. Hello? Is it the director? Why tomorrow? I’ll take care of it today.
Okay, okay. You, here.
Read me your poem. There is only one leader. The rest are servants. He who thinks of destiny
is a loser. – The winner is a joker. (Tamil song)
– That’s perfect. There is only one leader. The rest are servants. He who thinks of destiny
is a loser. The winner is a joker. Stop that. Did you write this song? Did you really write
the song? Yes, I wrote it. Did you or didn’t you? – No, she wrote it.
– Who is “she”? It’s her, sir. Do you even borrow poems? You want me to add music
to your borrowed texts? Should people really be
tortured like that? Siva Sambo! Siva Sambo! Where did he go? – Oh no, don’t, sir.
– Stand still. Stop! – I won’t stop, until you are dead.
– It wasn’t on purpose. Help! Stop! I’m gonna kill you! – What’s this?
– Stop! – I don’t like him either!
– There is no escape. – I’ll help you, sir.
– Stop! – Let go of me, Banana!
– No! Stab him, sir. Deep. – They’re always like this.
– Let go! You stabbed the wrong guy! I think it went in
four or five feet. Oh my gosh. Did I wrote this poem? You can tell that
this isn’t my poem. Hold on. Here’s the poem I wrote.
Read it. Another one? I got away from Nivas
and got caught by Shoba. Although I like her, that isn’t
a good enough reason to drink poison. Rain, thank god!
If it didn’t start that day – – I would’ve gone crazy
reading her poems. It is the first time
I saw myself in her eyes. They weren’t staring at me They were trying to tell
me something very special. My heart wanders from where I stand. I like the journey my path is on. Although thoughts arise, – – the words strike and I decline. I try with words from an unknown language, – – to open the dream book of my thoughts. Saw my soul, – – you are its form. Saw my soul, – – you are its form,
my love. My heart wanders from where I stand. I like the journey my path is on. The memories that graze the heart, – – depict the work of art. The dream of you in stubborn longing – – pushes the body into
the eternal prison of sleep.. Unconsciously my heart beats for you. Since it saw you, it follows your path. You awoken the feelings
in my body and soul. Now they stand apart,
torturing the residence of the mind. Don’t leave me. My heart can’t bare your absence. Don’t leave me. My heart can’t bare your absence. The words sneaking out of your eyes, – – are not constructed lies. The soul listening inside me, – – will do anything for you. Your looks make me beg. Your mere smile makes my heart beat. I came into your heart
and was reborn. One moment in your presence
releases the joy in me. Don’t leave me. My heart can’t bare your absence. Don’t leave me. My heart can’t bare your absence. My heart wanders from where I stand. I like the journey my path is on. Although thoughts arise, – – the words strike and I decline. I try with words from an unknown language, – – to open the dream book of my thoughts. Saw my soul, – – you are its form. Saw my soul, – – you are its form,
my love My heart wanders from where I stand. I like the journey my path is on. That’s my house.
Let me get an umbrella. – What?
– I’m already wet. – I don’t need an umbrella.
– Okay, see you. – Bye.
– Okay, bye. Oh no, she forgot her bag. If I don’t give it to her now – – I’m gonna pay for it tomorrow. You only dropped off the bag
to get inside. Watch me as I chase you out
the door, like a dog. I knew somebody would
show up eventually. Now you’re here. What do you want? Your daughter forgot her hand bag.
I just wanted to deliver it. Why?
You should’ve just taken off. Stealing is wrong, sir. First you show up late in the evening,
and then you give me useless excuses… Do you know what happens
when a wild animal is stressed? – Take your pills.
– Oh no, his blood pressure is rising. – Water! Water!
– It’s coming. What time is it? Is now the time for visiting? – Just relax.
– I can’t control my anger. Get out! Out! Hey, not that way!
Put the flowers down. Oh my god!
I jumped into the demons trap! Wow, that was close! There goes the last
two sphygmomanometers. Her dad is more crazy than her! After that, I didn’t see
her for a few days. Suddenly I got a text from her. Exactly five o’clock you are
to show up at this address. It’s a big event
with a lot of important people. Dress nice and don’t
forget a red rose. See you. The wallet’s always empty. What do I do now? What’s happening? Do not worry, brother. It is me,
M.G. Ramechandran (legendary Tamil actor). I understand your problem, brother. First you need to live happy. Just like my movies, your life
needs to be a success. You are the son everyone wants. Your parents savings for you
are behind my picture. – What does the leader say?
– Don’t take it all, brother. You need to save money.
Deal? Take whay you need
and put the rest back, brother. Only 1000. You said yourself
stealing is wrong. I’ll pay back as soon
as I can. Okay? Okay. Good luck. Time’s running out. Stop! Shit! What do I do now?
I am running out of time. Is this the place? No one is here? Where is she? Where are the important
people you talked about? Right in front of me. Happy birthday. Cheers. Thanks for the birthday party.
Cheers. You know what, Adhith? You gave me a flower on your birthday. In return I have a surprise for you. Can you guess what it is? I’m gonna quit drinking. Revolutionary leader,
just see how your money is helping! She’s even gonna stop drinking.
Thank you so much. You gave me a flower as a gift,
so your present is going to be – – me stopping…
with this as my last drink. – Cheers.
– Cheers Hey? Sit up, Shoba. Shoba? Careful, Shoba. Careful. – Oh no…
– Ranjana! Come see this. – What happened?
– Look at your daughter. I told you, you shouldn’t go.
Did you get drunk again? – Come in.
– Careful. Why do you embarass us like this?
Why do you ruin your life? My daughter is to be engaged,
don’t ruin her life. Just leave us alone. I don’t know if she likes me, – – but her dad certainly doesn’t. I couldn’t tolerate his reaction. Suppose I didn’t see her for ten days. Then maybe I could set things aside,
so I turned off my phone. I didn’t go to university
and didn’t spend time with my friends. I couldn’t be at home,
so I wandered the street. Guys… Adhith will come this way. You hit him in the head. Maruthu, you throw him in the back. The last one starts the car. Okay? – Yes, boss.
– Start! Wait, wait! Oh no. Come on out. You weren’t supposed to
start the car now. Why are you so stupid? Adhith. Get in. She ruined our plan. Aww man! What are you waiting for, guys?
He isn’t coming. – Hit him on the head!
– Throw him in. It’s me, guys! Why does this only happen to me? Oh no. What good is apologising
after you hit me? Why did you turn off your cell phone?
Bring it up! Bring it up! Turn it on. Do you see how many
missed calls you have? 118. Who are you, Deva Das? (movie character), – – since you can just turn off your cell. If you turn your phone off again,
I will kill you! Yeah, I understand. I’m working on it. Yes. One second. – Hi, Srikanth.
– Hi. – This is Adhith.
– Hi. She’s told me a lot about you. You two talk, I have an important
call. I’ll be right back. Okay sir. Yes sir, tell me more. Don’t worry, I’ll be done
in a few days. Trust me. Who is he? He’s the new man
my mom has chosen for me. She is forcing me to talk with him. How is he? Will you misunderstand,
if I tell you how I feel? – Go on.
– when making decisions about the future, – – it’s better to forget the past. What are you trying to say? Don’t get me wrong. You just said he was the new one. That means there is also an old one? – Adhith?
– Although you haven’t said it – – I can tell by the way you’re
holding the necklace – – that it’s from someone special. If that’s… If that’s not the case,
you would have taken it off – – but you haven’t. You’re still holding it close
to your heart to this very day. Why are you talking
about trivial things? Just tell me what’s
supposed to happen now. Should I talk to him or not? Answer me that first. You shouldn’t decide
anything without talking. Do you know that a good
heart is invaluable? It’s something you possess
and have a lot of. Give him the room and time
to realize that. Leave the past behind. The thoughts of you day and night, – – makes my heart wander like obsessed. My love is not up for debate. My heart suffers from eternal night. I thought the feeling was mutual
and I flew on admiration. Now I’m chained to the
darkness of fate. Patience is no more, – – my heart cannot withstand. Dreams are not to be dictated. I suffer from sleepless nights. The thoughts of you day and night, – – makes my heart wander like obsessed. My love is not up for debate. My heart suffers from eternal night. Like water in a river, – – that follows the stream – – I will follow you with melancholy. Don’t stop me with your arrogance. I know I am without wings, – – but yet I fly and fly. Do not wake me with your denial. You are so beautiful and bold, – – makes everyone an addict. The beautiful music will fade – – when your gorgeous voice sounds. Every second without you – – drains the life joy in me. I cannot see a way out, – – I’m blocked in. The body will fall upon your feet in – – the hopes that you will hold it. The thoughts of you day and night – – makes my heart wander like obsessed. My love is not up for debate. My heart suffers from eternal night. If you were but a friend – – the feelings would not captivate. Every memory of you – – will not regain my composure. Love spreads like a flame around me. I am burning with no escape. If you see me through the eyes of reason – – you would avoid me. Listen to your feelings, – – it will sing my love music. Tomorrow the guilt will chase you – – and an infinite sorrow will spread. Take your time to ponder my case, – – love me already fully today. The thoughts of you day and night – – makes my heart wander like obsessed. My love is not up for debate. My heart suffers from eternal night. Suffers from eternal night. Sorry, Shoba. Who is he? He ruined my mood. That’s why I cancelled dinner. – I need to talk to you.
– What about? Your mother said you talked too much. But I like your silence. I’m very simple. My mind is very simple. My education, work and friends
need to be as I wish. That also applies to my future wife. After the wedding she will not work,
because I don’t like it.. I don’t drink too much. Only sometimes at parties. I don’t like girls who drink. It isn’t decent. You look beautiful. So I assume you don’t drink. That’s it, Shoba. A good mother for my kids. I think you’ll be a suitable
girl for my family. Who was he again? You said he was your friend? He said so many bad things. What did he say? He said you were uncontrollable. He also said you drank. She doesn’t drink alot, – – but believes herself to be an alcoholic. She passes out after three small drinks. Sometimes she hits. It doesn’t hurt, – but you need
to act like it does. If it actually does hurt,
you need to act like it doesn’t. She often says she’s going to kill you,
but don’t take it seriously. If you have a special day in your life
you need to give her a rose. It makes her very happy. If you forget, she’ll remind you
and get it. Don’t expect patience from her. She’ll pretend to be brave,
but she has a heart like a kid. She doesn’t like waiting. She even writes poems. You need to read them with
patience and encourage her. That is also a joy in itself. She always writes poems about feminism. For us, It’s a bit annoying, – – but they always carry
a powerful message. She causes lots of trouble
and attracts problems. Hits and screams… But she’s very relaxed about it. Give her a chance. If you do – – she will definitely understand you. In the same way you also
need to give her some space. Then you will also learn
to understand her. She’s a very good girl. A good choice. After all this, – – he said, that you’re a good girl. Adhith. What happened? Shoba? Adhith! Adhith! Adhith! Adhith! Adhith! – Adhith?
– Shoba! Shoba! I thought she understood me… But no. She gave me three days to write
a letter about my feelings for her. Any guy would love to write
a letter to a girl he likes, – – but she asked to bring the letter. She’s very different, right? The three days were…
it can’t be put into words. You’ve spent all your time
chasing Adhith, Banana. From now on your name isn’t Banana. Elvis! Elvis pizza.
Try it out, guys. Not a bad welcome. Bananas. Bananas. – What do you want?
– I’m Elvis. – Okay.
– Where is Suruli? – Over there.
– Thank you. Pizza. Uncle wait!
Can I have a pizza? – This kid doesn’t give up.
– Wait. – The pizzas are in danger.
– Come on. Just one. – They’re not for you, kid.
– Just one. Finally, I got rid of him. Whew. Hi. Why didn’t you ask me?
I cannot go along with this. The discussion is over.
You will do as you’re told. – I wont!
– My blood pressure!. – You got ten minutes.
– Don’t force me like this. – The engagement starts in two minutes.
– I don’t want to. How can you do this
without my permission? – You will do as you’re told!
– You can’t make me! Ohh, so it’s a forced marriage. – Guys! Have you seen Adhith?
– What happened? Don’t be afraid. Adhith’s girl is about to be
forced to engagement. – Hurry, we must tell Adhith.
– Come on, hurry! – Come on.
– Let’s go, guys. – Now what?
– Where is he? There you are. What’s up?
Why are you all here? – Why didn’t you answer your phone?
– I lost it. Why haven’t you been
at the university? I’m writing my thesis,
so I couldn’t. Sure, you just relax
and write your thesis. She’ll probably be married and
pregnant by the time you’re done. I’m gone for three days
and you start believing him? It’s true.
We saw it on the way over. I saw it with my own eyes!
Shoba’s fighting it. I didn’t even deliver my pizzas
because I wanted to tell you. Shoba’s dad is forcing her to
get engaged with somebody else. Hurry! Give me your phone. I’m not getting through. Let’s get the sofa,
and then we’ll handle the rest. – What are you talking about?
– You get the sofa, and we’ll get Shoba. – Come on, guys.
– Let’s go. Hurry. Two of you stay by the car. The third waits by the door. Banana and I’ll go in,
find Shoba and bring her. How are you gonna get in? She’s on the top floor. Don’t worry about anything,
let’s just go up. – Okay, let’s go.
– Yeah. – Where is she?
– All the way up, come on. Thank god we made it. – Where is she?
– She was here. I saw her. Hi. Banana. You’ll look on that side,
and I’ll take this side. Have a piece of cake. Where are they?
I’m worried. – Good day.
– You too. – Shoba!
– Adhith? What are you doing here?
And why did you bring pizza? – I’m here to save you.
– Save me? Why? Your father forced you.
I know everything. Let’s just go. – What are you talking about?
– No need to explain, just trust me. I’ll get you out of here.
Let’s go. Let me go!
Sure, my dad forced me, – – but sometimes you have to obey,
so I went along with it. Hey! If the girl does not wish it,
the marriage has no value. – What are you…
– Don’t say anything. You don’t need to be scared.
I’ll take care of everything. What? Nobody is
unsatisfied with the ceremony. You don’t have to say
anything to convince me. I know everything.
Banana told me. Banana? No, Elvis! Here we go! You’re a leopard… I know your dad forced you,
and that you yelled and screamed. Why are you laughing?
I’ve been told everything. You came here because
of what Banana said? Yes, my father forced me,
and yes, I fought, – – but he was just forcing me put on
this traditional dress. Nothing else. I finally agreed, to please them. – Who is that?
– What’s going on? – Come on, faster.
– The bride is being kidnapped Someone is kidnapping the bride.
Please help. Who is it? What’s going on, Adhith? Adhith, what’s going on?
Why are you closing the door? The bride has run away.
Why are you just sitting here? Who kidnaps the bride
of a cops wedding? Thevan, lock the door. – The bride has been kidnapped. Find her.
– Okay sir. The groom is a heartless cop. He’ll kill you on sight. Oh no! Be quiet. Who kidnapped the bride? Where did he go? There’s nobody here. Look over there.
Hurry! Come on, move it. Follow me. Quickly. Look over there. Come on. – Where are they?
– I don’t know. – Nobody down there?
– No. Okay, let’s check over here.
Come on. – Search everywhere!
– Got it. Check over there. What’s taking so long? – Don’t be afraid, come on.
– Let go, you creep! Don’t hit me,
I’m here to help. Oh no, what is this? Who are you? Oh no, please don’t hit me. Alright, I got away. Cannot take it anymore. – Oh no, not him again.
– Where are your pizzas? – Why are you always following me?
– Give me your pizzas! – Let me go, you brat!
– Not until you give me pizza. Hvor er de? Same groom, but different bride.
Oh my god, help me! – I should never have listened to Banana.
– Stop it. – An elevator.
– Come on. I need to get out of here fast! I’m guessing they won’t miss you. – There’s the emergency exit!
– I’m so sorry. We’ll talk later, just go.
I’ll take it from here. – You look great in that dress.
– Shut up. Just go! Come on, hurry up! – Where did they go?
– Where are you? Where are they? Did you check that side?
What about the other side? Has anybody seen them? Where did they go? Start the car, guys! – You screwed up, Banana!
– Come on. – Hurry up.
– Start the car. Get in! – Don’t leave without me!
– Go, go! Come on! Drive! Wait for me! Go, go! It was her cousins engagement. Shoba said no, so it was
arranged for her cousin. We really screwed up that day. I didn’t know
how to make it right, – – so I was left with a fear. If you shout from here, do you
think it can be heard on the other side? Shall we try? You go over there, I’ll yell.
We’ll see. – All the way over there?
– Yeah, and I’ll yell from here. – You are joking, right?
– Go! I want to shout. Go on! Adhith? Adhith? I don’t know how to
express my feelings. When I see you, I understand
how much I mean to you. I don’t dare stand in front
of you and tell you. I used to yell at you,
but today you made me cry. Shoba, can you hear me? My heart holds so many feelings, – – but I don’t know how to make
you understand them. I’m sorry, Adhith! Forgive me. I shouldn’t have seen you at all. I don’t like to cry like this. I can’t do it anymore. I’m sorry, Adhith! You said something,
but I couldn’t hear it. – What did you say?
– I’ll tell you. – Did you bring the letter?
– Sure. Here. Give me yours, we’ll read
it first. I’m tense. Give it to me. Let’s wait to read them. It’s not just ordinary letters
to be read and thrown away. When should we read them? In a year. Same place, same time and same day. – A year from now?
– Yes. In that one year we are not to
see or talk to each other. Our paths must part. When we meet back here in a year,
we’ll read them together. What are you saying, Shoba? How can you ask me
to wait for that? How Shoba? Time is significant, – – but it also has a beauty. When we read the letters a year
from now, they may not matter, – – or they will mean even more
than they do now. Time will decide. That’s why I’m saying:
let’s bury them here. If you respect me, – – and truly respects me
for who I am… Then please, bury them. Thats how she said good bye. The train will be here soon.
Should I get on or will you? Can’t we get the next one? Today’s sunday.
The next train is the last. One of us needs to get on. Why? Can’t we get on the train together? Maybe we’ll change our minds.
We better split up. Fine, I’ll take this one. Wait, Shoba! I’ll go. Don’t turn around. Just go. Go! Shoba? Adhith! Adhith! Adhith! Adhith! – Adhith!
– Shoba! Shoba! – Adhith…
– Shoba! Shoba! Shoba… I honoured her wishes
after she left. I gave her poem to Nivas Raja – – who made it into a music video
with Love Climax Karthik. The song was a huge hit. I honoured all your wishes,
Shoba, in the hopes – – and wish to make you happy. I did everything in the
hopes of meeting you. In the hopes that we
will be reunited. She’s not coming. The time’s long past. Maybe… Maybe she wrote,
that she wouldn’t return. Adhith. Thanks. I knew you’d be here, but I
wasn’t sure I would. You must now understand
how painful it is to wait. You will get an answer today, – – But I’ll never get my answer. What I have to say won’t be easy – – but please read the whole letter. I had a love before I met you. All the places we went
were places I visited with him. Do you know why
I asked you to come? The day we met – – were the anniversary
of him leaving me. We were very happy. He had no bad habits. Suddenly a small accident happened. When I opened my eyes
in the hospital – – he was gone. You probably ask yourself – – why I dressed up and drank
after a death like that, right? I don’t want sympathy – – and he wouldn’t have liked
to see me cry and be sad. Therefore I was always
the way he wanted. Even though he was a good person,
fate killed him. That’s why I won’t fit
into the unfair world. I drank and argued with mother,
dad and everyone around me. I was inconsolable. That was where you stepped
into my life. I started to see him through you. That’s why I brought you along
and recovered my joy. But you weren’t him. I couldn’t forget him. Neither could I stop the
thoughts about you. I know that you understand
me better than he did, – – but I wouldn’t be able
to accept that. I hope I can defeat my past
and come back. If I don’t come back – – just pretend you read
a good book and continue your life. I love her.
Even more now than before. She’s not just some book
to be read and then put away. She’s my diary.
She fills every page. It wasn’t until she left
me that I understood… Life is so fleeting. Every moment needs to be
lived to its fullest, – – because it can be over
before you know it. Two years. I’ve waited for her
on this hill for two years. Now I understand her
explanation for the value of time. Now my journey to find
her begins. I hope you’ll wait
while I’m gone. You’re Shoba, right? You’re the one that changed my life.
Did you forget? Soldier, sir?
How are you? How is your ex girlfriend? She’s also well. She’s had a baby boy.
Cute little rascal. If I would’ve killed her that day,
that sweet boy wouldn’t exist. The happy life they live together
wouldn’t exist either. You are the one I need
to thank for everything. What we do needs to matter.
So I’m writing this book about my life. I’m just talking about myself.
How are you? What are you doing all
alone on this hilltop? I come up here to unburden my heart. I was meant to be here last year. I’m a year late. I just came back from the US. Like you I also want to
unburden my heart, – – but I can’t. Why are you laughing? That day, you told me
to forget about my girlfriend. How can you still torment yourself
with the memory of your dead boyfriend? How can that be fair? What about the guy
that was waiting for you here? How do you think he can forget you
and continue his life? – How do you know all this?
– I know everything. That’s not important. Just read his letter. One moment… Don’t tell me you can’t
change your decision. Look at this stone. Last year this rock was
split in two by thunder. If you saw the broken stone
your heart would shatter. So Adhith found another stone
exactly like it, and replaced it. Even a stone you like
means the world to him. Just see how fate intervenes: You say you just came from the US – – and right now he’s leaving for the US. He waited on you until today,
but you didn’t return. He said, he wouldn’t come back. When your journey ends his begins. You have wasted your precious time. Sorry, is the USA… – Is the USA flight…
– Yes, gate’s closed. I’m so sorry. – Crap!
– Adhith? Adhith… Adhith… Adhith! – Adhith!
– Shoba? Shoba! Thank god. Shoba. What is this? What is this? I gave you three days to write.
That’s all you had to say? Read it. My thoughts about you?
You are the joy of my life. Adhith. You idiot! That’s all
you could come up with? – Why are you laughing?
– Why are you hitting me? – That hurts.
– Go ahead, laugh again. – What is that?
– Visa application for the US. – You never showed up.
– So? You’re leaving without me? – Listen, just calm down.
– Are you leaving or what? Hold on! Where are you going? You haven’t heard the message
of the movie yet. By all means, don’t believe that all
girls who don’t drink are good, – – and girls who do are bad. Does that sound flat? It doesn’t just apply to guys
but girls too. The faith in life must always
be there to give a helping hand. Life should have a system,
but life itself must not be a system. Adhith, who are you giving
useless advice to now? Everybody’s looking for the groom! We are getting married. Do you think
I can do it by myself? Come on! I’m coming…

The Secret World of LA Street Artist ‘Plastic Jesus’

The Secret World of LA Street Artist ‘Plastic Jesus’


PLASTIC JESUS: You never know when you go out if tonight’s the night that you are
going get busted and you are going to spend the rest of the night in the jail cell. PLASTIC JESUS: The thing about street art that attracts me is firstly that there is
no editing, there is no editor, you can put any message you like on the streets. And second,
the fact that street art is illegal and it is put out without any legitimate authorisation.
That in it self is a statement and I feel that kind of subversive nature of it really
works into the kind of person I am. COMM: Originally from London, Plastic Jesus is an LA-based street artist. After 20 years
working as a photojournalist, he got into street art around four years ago. PLASTIC JESUS: Melrose is one of the busiest streets of LA. You get between 30 and 50,000
people go down there a day. So, it is great spot to get a piece of street art and also
it has kind of become the centre of LA street art as well. Most of the stuff down there
is done illegally. I am not saying the building owners turn a blind eye to it, but it is kind
of almost accepted that street art is part of the culture. PLASTIC JESUS: Now, I’ve always admired Banksy and the way in which he conveys a quite
often political message or a current affairs message within quite a simple street art stencilled image. So really that’s where my start up came. PLASTIC JESUS: This is probably the piece I am most famous for – Stop Making Stupid
People Famous. Black wall, yellow works pretty well, it’s just quite a striking piece and
I can guarantee that in a day or two people will be posing up next to it, taking selfies
and tagging, tagging themselves and tagging, hopefully, tagging me in it as well. I think
it says a lot to Hollywood as well, this piece, like, stop f*cking making stupid people famous,
you dumbasses. PLASTIC JESUS: It’s re-posted a millions of times on social media and it always gets tagged
underneath various celebrity, you know, reality show stars like Kanye West, Kim Kardashian
etc. etc. But the piece has actually a double message, ‘stop making stupid people famous’
is really also a criticism of us. We are the consumer, we are watching the TV shows, we
are buying the tabloids, we are looking at the websites, we are the people making these
people famous. So, it is also very critical of us and that’s the way I like pieces to be. COMM: He made international news recently when he built a wall around Donald Trump’s
star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. PLASTIC JESUS: Most of my pieces are current affairs, news or political commentary. I think
having spent 20 years as a photojournalist, a lot of my background there comes into play.
I did some No Kardashian Parking signs. Recently, leading up to the election, I’ve done some
No Trump Parking signs as well. So what I do is that I think of a few ideas, maybe jot
them down and sketch them, come back to them a few days later, if there is one outstanding
idea that I still think works, I will go with it. That was the case with certainly the Trump
wall that I put on the Hollywood boulevard. PLASTIC JESUS: These are Trump $100 bills, and if we look here we’ve got the, we have
got crossed assault rifles, we’ve got the wall between us and Mexico, Trump’s signature. PLASTIC JESUS: The whole message behind my art is really not to tell people what their
opinion should be or how they should think. PLASTIC JESUS: I did another piece called Liberty, which is the Statue of Liberty holding
a police riot shield with a riot helmet on. Now that can carry two messages, is it ‘are
the police protecting our liberty” or ‘are we becoming a police state’. Well, I leave
that for the viewers to make their own mind up. PLASTIC JESUS: Where my pieces are, I often go back and just hang out there and take a
few selfies, just to gaze at the reaction, I mean, that’s the important thing with
what I do. I want to see how the public interact with them and their reaction and their comments. COMM: He conceals his identity, but that’s not just to avoid fines or possible imprisonment. PLASTIC JESUS: I don’t want my persona, me to become the focus of a piece of art that
I do. I want the message in the piece of art to convey it’s own importance. My brothers
both know I’m Plastic Jesus. I think they think that it’s pretty cool that they got
a brother who does this stuff, which is getting so much attention, and slightly subversive, and a bit of an unusual job. COMM: Finally, how did he choose his pseudonym? PLASTIC JESUS: I first moved to LA about 9 years ago and whilst just driving around,
I saw all these cars with these little plastic Jesus figures sitting on the back dashboard.
These little plastic Jesus figures are there to remind these people about their morals,
their beliefs and their ethics. And I felt really by doing street art, that’s really
what I hoped to set out to achieve, to get people to question their beliefs and ethics.

Is the DJI Osmo Action worth buying?: Exploring Photography with Mark Wallace

Is the DJI Osmo Action worth buying?: Exploring Photography with Mark Wallace


Hi everybody, welcome to another episode of Exploring Photography right here on AdoramaTV. In this episode I’m going to be talking about this little guy it’s the new Osmo Action. It’s the pocket camera that has a front-facing screen, so you can see what you’re doing. Well let’s get right to it, what makes the Osmo action an awesome camera? There are tons of features in this camera that I’ve sort of put it through its paces. I’ve had this little action camera for about a month now, and I tried it in different scenarios… underwater in crazy rain on my motorcycle, walking, using it as a vlogging camera, using the internal audio. I just try to test everything to use it as you would normally use it in the real world. So let’s talk about some of the features that set this apart. The first one is… it has a front facing camera… so right on the front, there’s a full HD screen, and so you can actually see what you’re doing either from the back screen, or the front screen, and so if you’re using this as a vlogging camera, you need to sort of frame yourself up. You can do that just fine or you can use the back screen to see exactly what’s going on.. So you can just hit this little button on the side, it’ll flip that around, and now you can see what’s going on from the back. It’s really cool, the other thing that’s really nice about this camera is, there’s a button on the side here, that’s called the QS button… that’s the quick, quick, switch button, and what that allows you to do is, change between modes, and so if you just click it once, you go to video mode. Click it again, you go to HDR video, you go to slow-motion, hyperlapse, whatever, you can set that up and customize it. The cool thing about this button is, if you’re using gloves, so if you’re on a… snow, like snowboard, or you’re skiing.. or you’re a snowmobile, or you’re on a motorcycle, or you’re doing anything. You have gloves you can actually can control this camera switching modes, and doing things with gloves on, and I love that. The other thing this little side button does is – if you hold it for just a couple seconds it switches from the back camera, to the front camera, so that’s really easy, and it’s really really fast. All right now, let’s talk about some of the things that really matter. The first one is stabilization, this camera has something called rock steady, and it is incredibly good, and so just to give you a sense of how good this is. I walk down the pier here with the camera handheld, with just a normal setting, and you can see that it is all over the place, because I’m holding that with my hand. So then I went back and all I did was I turned on Rocksteady, and did the same exact walk, and you can see that now, this is smooth as butter. It is gimbal like, and so it is super smooth, in fact because it corrects all of the axes, it actually looks a little bit better walking than my Osmo Pocket, which I was very surprised about. So this is gimbalish… not a gimbal, but it’s so darn close. It’s really sort of crazy, now I’m using the front facing camera to frame up my shot to make sure I am actually in the frame. I also am using the built in audio so it’s not horrible… probably a external audio device works a little bit better, also face oriented exposure turned on, and so you can see that it does a pretty good job of making sure I’m exposed. But even with the bright background like this, you can see that I’m not exactly exposed correctly, but it does a pretty impressive job. We’re about… oh an hour or so, before Sun is going down. We’ve got a lot of clouds out there, so the contrast between my face in the background isn’t extreme, but it is enough. That would normally give a GoPro or other little camera some issues, so I’m really impressed with this camera. I’m impressed with how stable it is, it’s very similar to using a gimbal. It’s sort of wacky and crazy, The other thing that I think that is amazing about this camera that doesn’t get a lot of hype is… this front little screen here, it is water repellent, and so I was astonished, I was riding through heavy rain on my motorcycle and I was really loving the fact that even though this thing was just getting drenched in rain, it was just falling right off the front of that lens. Let’s talk about a couple other things, one of the things that I love about this, it just came out, it’s a new feature with the firmware update called Hyperlapse, now what Hyperlapse allows you to do is it’s sort of like time lapse, but the difference is this.. is for having your camera move and recording things over time, and so you can do things like zipping through the curves on your motorcycle, and you could speed that up, you can do a little walkthrough which I did. And there are different speeds, so you can do it 10 times as fast 15 times as fast, or 30 times as fast. So it really depends on what you’re doing. You get different effects using that, and it’s as simple as just choosing Hyperlapse… saying which speed you want, and off to the races you go. Another feature of this camera that I absolutely love is HD, our video you know what that allows you to do if you have a really high dynamic range scene, you can sort of compress those things, and get the highlights and the shadows in one shot in the camera without having to do a bunch of post-production… and so I tested that out on just behind me here last night when the Sun was going down, and here’s the scene that you can see. This is just normal video, and you can see that it’s got some problems with the highlights, things are being blown out, but then what I did was I just turned on HDR video, shot the same scene, and wow what a huge improvement. That really changes the way I see things. I also did some tests and some more dramatic scenarios when I was in a cave doing some swimming in Mexico, and you can see here the back is totally blown out. When I turn on HDR video it does a little bit better job, it still has some high-light problems, so it can’t solve every single HDR issue, but it does a really, really good job. Another feature of this camera that I love it’s called the DeWarp feature… now wide-angle lenses like this, are going to distort the scene and so on. This camera what you can do is, you can turn on something called DeWarp. What it will do is it will crop the frame, but it will straighten things out, and so here’s a couple of scenes I have… here is one with DeWarp turned off, and you can see it the edges, things are just wonky, they’re a little bit curvy they look round… turn on DeWarp, and you can see that now everything is flat and horizontal, and looks wonderful. DeWarp I love it! Another really cool feature of this camera is… if you want to shoot videos for Instagram and you need that vertical orientation, well you just turn it like this, and now you’re in portrait mode, and the videos are going to be saved in portrait mode, and so you can shoot things, and then post those straight to Instagram without having to do any kind of post-production rotation stuff. It’s really a time saver. This is DJI’s is a very first action camera, and it’s no surprise that it’s pretty awesome… because it’s from DJI but the question is are there any negatives… and the answer is yes so the first one that a lot of people are talking about is this does not do live streaming, and so that’s something that is not right now in this… but the cool thing is with the firmware update that could be enabled… So I wouldn’t be surprised if live streaming comes to this camera and before Christmas… so I don’t know don’t quote me on that, but I’d be surprised if live streaming doesn’t come around very, very soon. The second thing and this is one of the my gripes about this again, this is something that could be solved very easily. There’s no remote control other than a smartphone, and so the smartphone is amazing, because you’ve got the MIMO application… you can control everything on this little camera from the smartphone, but if you’re skydiving or zipping down a mountain on skis, or you’re on a motorcycle or snowmobile, or something… you have this mounted to a helmet or on your bike or somewhere else. You can’t use your smartphone… you need some kind of little thing you can put on your wrist to turn it on and off, or maybe on your handlebars that doesn’t exist yet, and so I hope DGI it creates that, and then one little persnickety thing that kept getting me over and over, is this little quick switch button on the side… it’s used for two things 1. switching modes and 2.switching between the front and rear camera. I love it cuz you can use it with gloves… it’s all the rage I love that, but the problem is if you don’t hold it quite long enough you can accidentally switch this camera into the wrong mode, and so now I have really learned to really be deliberate when I push that button, so I don’t accidentally change from video mode, to hyperlapse, or something else .. and shoot unintentional video. Now the question is Mark should I buy this camera? And my answer is …Absolutely! Yes. I absolutely love DJI equipment…. in fact I shot this entire video using nothing but my DJI Osmo pocket. Every single shot that you see either came from the Osmo action or the Osmo pocket.. 100%.. DJI gear. The thing that I love about this camera is it’s super easy to use it… shoots 4k 60 frames per second slow mo Hyperlapse. Time-lapse… it does Stills it does everything you could ever imagine out of an action camera. It’s got a front-facing camera, so you can use it for vlogging. You can use external USB C compatible adapters for external audio. It just does everything, so yeah, it’s a no-brainer and this is the camera… I think you should get if you want an action camera.

The Plane Highway in the Sky

The Plane Highway in the Sky


If you’ve ever looked at a flight tracker
sometime around 10 or 11 pm eastern, you might have noticed something—perfect lines of
planes stretching all the way to Europe. These are just some of the over 2,000 daily
flights that cross the Northern Atlantic. With so many flights, there just has to be
organization. This is the most direct route from New York
to London. You may think it’s this, a straight line,
but that straight line isn’t actually a straight line. This curved line is a straight line because,
despite what some may think, the earth is curved. From New York to London the curve you see
on a flat map isn’t too extreme, but in the case of a longer flight, such as from
New York to Bangkok, the most direct route is not this, but this—straight over the
North Pole. It makes more since if you look at a north-pole
oriented map. If you draw the most direct route between
Atlanta and London, you’ll see that it passes over every major east coast international
airport. That means that planes from Atlanta to Europe
travel on the exact same route as planes from Charlotte, Washington, Baltimore, Philadelphia,
New York and Boston. On top of that, all these transatlantic planes
typically leave between 6-8 pm Eastern to time their arrival for early morning in Europe. This means that there are potentially hundreds
of planes all going the exact same route at the exact same time. The North Atlantic also has something known
as the Jet Stream. These easterly winds average around 110 mph
and if planes fly in them, they can cut hours of their travel time, however, the winds are
only strongest in a line three miles high (5 km) and 100 miles (160 km) wide. That further concentrates the flights. On average, an eastbound transatlantic flight
from New York to London takes about 6 hours and 15 minutes. Coming back against the jet stream, the same
flight takes over 7 hours. Sometimes, the winds can be even more active
such as on January 8th, 2015 when British Airways flight 114 flew from New York to London
in only 5 hours and 16 minutes—a new record for a commercial subsonic plane. On that day, the jet stream was blowing over
200 mph (320 km/h) and the Boeing 777 reached a speed of 745 mph (1200 km/h) —only 16
mph (25 km/h) below the sound barrier. So when winds can cut an hour off a flight
and a 777 burns 2,700 gallons (10,200 liters) of fuel per hour and jet fuel costs $1.89
per gallon, that’s a $5,103 difference between being in the right, and the wrong winds. Hopefully you now see why this is important. So there are all these planes that are flying
the exact same route, but usually that’s no problem. The busiest route in North America, New York
to Chicago, sees over 100 flights per day leaving as frequently as every five minutes
during the morning and evening rush and these planes just fly the most efficient route. Before the flight, route planners file a plan
with air traffic control and during the flight, they’re just directed by air traffic control
in a way that keeps them 5 nautical miles from other planes. The difference between New York to Chicago
and New York to London is that, over the North Atlantic, there is no radar. You see, radar only extends about 250 miles
offshore. Transatlantic planes can be more than a thousand
miles from shore. That’s why every morning, the route planners
at Gander Air Traffic Control Center in Gander, Newfoundland publish the days North Atlantic
Tracks. The night before, every airline that will
fly across the atlantic the following day sends Gander a preferred route message indicating
what they think the best route will be. For the most part, Gander center follows these
requests and creates a set of 10 or so routes. These tracks attempt to get the most amount
of planes on the most efficient route to Europe. The tracks are labeled: Zulu being the southernmost
route, Yankee being the second southernmost, then Xray, then Whisky, and so on and so forth. Here’s how a flight on the tracks works,
and I’ll warn you, this is when the video gets technical. Let’s say we’re going from New York to
Paris. Around half an hour before scheduled departure,
the captain talks to normal air traffic control to request clearance for the route up to around
Newfoundland, Canada. In most cases clearance is given, and soon
after we’ll take off. ABOUT when the plane crosses the Gulf of St
Lawrence, the pilot will request the North Atlantic Track that he or she desires. Here’s today’s message describing the
day’s routes over the Atlantic. After looking over this, the pilot decides
to request track Whisky. That means that, at least for now, we’ll
head towards the RAFIN waypoint, our oceanic entry point. Waypoints are fixed spots that are used for
flight navigation. These are much easier for Air Traffic Control
to communicate to pilots than map coordinates when speaking over radio. Occasionally you’ll see some creatively
named waypoints. Just north of Lebanon, New Hampshire are HAMMM,
BURGR, and FRYYS. On approach to Kansas City Airport there’s
SPICY BARBQ TERKY SMOKE RIBBS. Boston has two waypoints in support of their
sports teams, the KUBBS and BEARS. Some waypoint names are more somber. On the northern approach route to Washington
Regan National Airport, just miles away from where a plane hit the Pentagon on 9/11, the
waypoints read WEEEE WLLLL NEVVR FORGT SEP11. Since the North Atlantic Tracks change every
day, the MOTAM just gives entry and exit waypoints, and then coordinates for the route in between. Since the track coordinates are pre-programed
into the autopilot before take-off, there’s no reason to name them as waypoints since
they won’t be given over radio. In the case of this flight, we’re REQUESTING
track WHISKY and, more than likely, Gander Control Center will give permission, although,
sometimes they’ll tell us to take a different track, usually because we’re closer to another
plane than the minimum separation distance. Since it’s much more difficult to know where
planes are over the North Atlantic, THEY’RE required to be 15 minutes separated—about
140 miles—rather than the normal 5 miles in areas with radar coverage. Assuming we’re granted clearance, we’ll
head towards RAFIN waypoint and make sure that our satellite communication systems are
working, then we’ll check to see if the High Frequency Radio is working—a backup
in case other communications go down. Minutes later, just after passing RAFIN waypoint,
the controller will say “radar services terminated, have a good night,” and then
we’re on our own. All the North Atlantic Tracks are preloaded
onto autopilot, so there’s nothing really to do except wait. When we we hit 30 west, we enter the Shanwick
airspace approaching Western Europe. We switch our radios to Shanwick’s frequency,
then fly a few more hours to our Oceanic Exit Point—GUNSO waypoint—meaning we’ve successfully
traversed the Northern Atlantic. I hope you enjoyed this Wendover Productions
