More on Mozhi

Here are lines that I feel should reach a lot more people than it would as a simple comment.

Mozhi is one of the talked-about movies these days. I assumed the credit should go to Jothika for her improved performance(True). But the story did not end quite there.
I rely more on blogs for reviews because, they are not corporated (Did it sound like contaminated or corrupted ) Quite likely).
That’s how I linked to your blog, which made me realise what “Mozhi” has is not glitz but radiance. I want to applaud, TEAM MOZHI, Ability Foundation, and YOU. For bringing it to the notice of people around the world.
Thanks a lot,
I added the movie in my list for Apr 6 2007 in Chennai.
Thanks, Vasundhar, for those kind words. A movie like this comes our way rarely and we ought to celebrate it, and more to the point, support it. Mozhi’s success is a direct attack on the producers’/directors’ excuse for making abusive, stereo-typical movies – “This is what the public wants!” The public has now proved that sensible, well-made movies that provide clean, wholesome comedy will be appreciated.  To make a successful movie, one need not indulge in gory violence, repeated fights and flight scenes,  totally despicable  dance sequences and dialogues that are base and derogatory.
Mozhi vindicates public taste. In a sense, it also shapes public taste by breaking myths about disability. Make a good movie, we will watch it. Don’t take short cuts to make money.
May I compliment you on the wonderful phrase “It is not glitz, but radiance”? I loved that!


  1. definitely, a movie like mozhi brings to the light that the people of tamilnadu do enjoy movies like this (not even a single scene with vulgarity).
    i really enjoyed the way the movie was presented. the movie has proved that the differently abled are always better abled than all of us.
    if all of us had the power to love our fellow beings unconditionally, are society will reach it moral high.
