You need 35 minutes to listen to the whole webcast from here. Do take time out to listen to R.Madhavan (yeah, Maddy) speaking his heart out in his most candid interview ever.
I started out quite formally because we were shooting it for a TV interview but as we got into it, I think we both forgot the camera was rolling. I recorded the audio from my phone and compressed the file size to one-tenths of the original for the podcast.
Do spread the word about the movie. Don’t miss it because it’s not everyday we get a film made like this in Tamil.
Do listen to the webcast for my review of the film. I have shared my views on the film with him during the chat at his place. We recorded this two weeks ago. And for the record, the last 15 minutes of the chat was completely off camera.
sudish – the podcast link is not working…could you check it and post it again? or correct the link?
are you talking about the external link?
the podcast begins as you arrive at the blog automatically.seems to work fine here.
Are you using firefox?
in any case, you can access the source file by clicking on the post header. it will direct you to the archive.org site where the content is hosted.
sudhish – I tried both firefox and IE – the podcast doesn’t play automatically. the external link doesn’t work either. I’ll try it from a different computer and see what happens.
awesome chat, sudhish..thanks for that..if the movie has half the passion that the man has when talking about it, it should be a great watch..shall wait for it to arrive stateside
Intially I too faced the same problem (I am using IE7). Got a message asking me to download and install Quicktime player to play the clip. The podcast plays once u do that. Also try and install Real player 11 which allows you to save the clip to your PC.
Thanks for sharing this. Just today morning I booked the tickets for coming saturdays’s 4o clock show. Will let you know what I felt after the show. By the way did I hear maddy swear?!
it’s not starting automatically in IE 6 or FF 2 – pl. fix it.
it does show up after a while – but the volume is painfully low – even setting the vol at max doesn’t help …
sudhish – nice one.. the podcast did work on firefox for me..Since its coming with such high recommendations, I’m going to see the movie this friday in bay area..
Hey. Is it not possible to access the podcast link without downloading adobe? Adobe takes ages to download!
Excellent podcast! thanks sudhish for the wonderful interview. I felt like I was there with Maddy in the same room. convey my regards to him when you meet him next 🙂
Sudish , the podcast ain’t loud enough ! Is it a problem with my browser ( I.E ) or something else ?
Can i download that interview by any chance ?
and hey , do check out my review for Evano Oruvan , i attended the premiere yesterday ! Met Maddy and spoke with him as well ! I would be happy if you could leave a feedback . The review would be a bit partial as I’m a Maddy fanatic and watching this movie was like the testament to all these years of admiration of this man.
Sudish awesome interview.
Thanks for sharing this.
35 minutes of sheer class with the final 15 being the icing on the cake.
As a fanatic of this guy , i can only continue admiring him leaps and bounds over the other mortals.
Thank you Sudish , it was simply superb to hear 🙂
and yes , Maddy did swear and rightly so !! ha ha !
heh, thanks for this podcast sudhish. interesting interview that i heard in a while, and heh, it was hilarious when madhavan sweared, i started laughing, icould imagine his face expression. but interesting conversation, saw dhombivilli fast a couple weeks ago, am waiting for evano oruvan to see how madhavan portrays a regular character without any bravado.
when is the interview going to be broadcast on television and on which channel?? can hardly wait!!
glad you were able to listen to it finally.
it is exactly what he promises it to be. not seen a tamil film half as brilliant in this in a long long long time.
yes, he did. 🙂 and i hope the movie made you angry too.
please try using headphones cuz the original file size was over 30mb, brought it down to 3mb for 35mins. With headphones it is quite clear to listen to.
It takes about a minute or two to load depending on your internet speed. Hope you were able to listen to it and watch the movie. do spread the word.
if you just click on the title of the blog post, it would take you to archive dot org where the source file has been uploaded to. and you should be able to download it from there.
yes, i will let him know about all your comments in this blog. 🙂 click on the title of the post to go to the location where the source file is hosted and Save Page As, archive dot com lets you download the file.
where did you get a copy of dombivli fast? would like to see it too. Tried landmark, music world, all DVD rental shops, no luck.
we did it for ndtv. it’s their call on when they are gonna play it.
Watched the movie Sudhish. It was fantastic. It would have been better had the assholes sitting behind me choose some other movie. The morons irritated me and distracted from watching the movie with their silly comments. I don’t think I can exactly review the entire movie so just have written what came to my mind. Nothing new to add to what you must have already known but I just hope people who read it, do develop an interest in watching the movie. Word of mouth helps! Have you seen “Onbathu Rupai nottu”? Any views? I heard it was good, so planning to watch it in the theater.
hi nice blog
Thanks Sudish !
It’s unfortunate to hear from the industry that this movie has bombed at the box office !
But hey , Maddy’s definition of success was totally different !! 🙂
