Last night I started watching this anime on Hulu called No.6 because somebody had recommend it to me as being good (and short!). It is good! It's a dystopia story about a city that seems too perfect and, of course, dark secrets are within. It made me wonder what is happening with Shekhar Kapur's Paani and then I started thinking about other dystopias. In way, I think all of those masala films that start in a village or neighborhood that is… wrong or "off" somehow, all those films have elements of dystopia. Between the world of 1984 and a film with a neighborhood run by a corrupt police chief fueled by drug money or something… well, at the bottom of it all, isn't the difference only a matter of the sci-fi elements? The conspiracy elements, the inability to trust anything authority says to you, how there is something rotten below the surface… these are the same. Yes/No?
That was just something I was thinking about last night.
Have a new Jiiva song! Man, I love this guy. I don't know why I find him so appealing but I do! I'm not usually a fan of the "average guy but better" type of hero but Jiiva is just so… likable. Harris Jayaraj, too! Fun stuff for a Tuesday morning!
And off topic but, damn, this song is catchy:
