13 Tzameti - (8/10)



13 Tzameti (Tzameti means 13 in Georgian language, native of the director) is a thrilling sensational movie which will pace up your hearts for 88 minutes the movie will last! 


The story is about a 22 year old Sebastian (played by George Babluani), who is a worker in a house to earn living for his poor family. Then one day the owner of the house dies because of his morphine intake and by chance (or mischance), Sebastian gets hold of a mail with a ticket and hotel bills for the owner.


Sebastian decides to go in his place as he understands there are lot of monies at stake and he decides to take his chance...he least expected that his chance will land him up in a roulette game where 13 men arrange themselves in a  circle and shoot themselves off...and Sebastian gets to be the 13th person...


The movie, by Géla Babluani, is in black and white to curtail down the blood but in my view it adds up to the thrill even further...blackness in the movie makes each and every second full of such abyss of suspense that I recommend this movie not at all for teenagers or for faint hearted...


There is a  dialogue in the movie by a gambler who wants to bet on Sebastian, who is like a baby amongst his opponent and totally unexperienced in the game,  
"It's when I have logic against me that I have more luck!" 
This dialogue alone made me give the movie 1 number more than 7 which added up because of cinematography, ruthlessness and carelessness depicted by No. 6 and other players,  also the details to attention paid by director is noteworthy. In all I give the movie total of 8 of 10 points.

A must must watch for all world cinema lovers :)

Top 5 things that make World Economic Forum work

World Economic Forum, Davos 2011.  5 days from 26 - 30 January 2011.  2500 delegates. 26000 people.  In 1 village called Davos whose population for the rest of the 51 weeks is only 13000.
Questions on its efficacy and impact are bound to happen. Especially when world's top leaders spend millions of dollars. Not counting their opportunity cost of millions of dollars which they could have used for their work.
I attempted my own rationale on 5 reasons which make World Economic Forum work.

How Branding can help your startup

I can bucket a startup entrepreneur into either of 2 buckets – one – Branding-is-for-Biggies! and second  who believe -Branding-is-important-after-Series-A-funding”. And first bucket is full till the brim. Let me start with a simple question with a possibly simple answer -

Remembering Tej...

You don't normally think of writing this for a friend who was just 31 years old.
Friend who you have just met.
I dont want any of you, reading this, to experience this ever again.

Tejendra Gwala, or Tej, as we lovingly called him, a 6ft 2 inches man was still a boy at heart. Full of dreams, full of youth and full of  dare to be different from everyone out there.



Few things -

1. He knew how to make you comfortable - I spent innumerable evenings with him - where he would just go and start speaking with strangers - whether t was a gym, dhaba or a 5 star restaurant

2. He knew his values - I was just 1 year younger than I was but he respected me and Aakriti (my wife) as his real brother and Bhabhi. There were dozens of time, when he would just call and say - I want "Ghar ka khana" and lets go for a drive.

3. He was the best closer that you would want in your team - knew how to finish things. Whether it was AV shoot in Chennai, fixing dozens of cabs, writing a strategic prese…
