Indraprastham , a movie released around 8-9 years ago had Mammotty as a software engineer – Sathish who ‘founded’ the Morphing Tehnology for NASA. The movie was entirely forgettable but for two things
1. Mammottyâ€™s dance abilities â€“ which tested everyoneâ€™s patience
2. Song Lyrics â€“ Here is a gem â€“ â€œDekho Bhaiyya Dekho Internet-in Magic..manichitra melamâ€..
This was around 1997-98, when Internet had quietly made its entry into Gods Own country. Fast Forward to the present.
Internet, now, in our land also an in-thing and almost everyone from tiny-tots in kintergarden to septuagenerian grandmothers seem to have email addresses and were net-savvy. The only people who seemed to be blissfully unaware of the power of the Net seemed to be our own Malluwood stars. Fortunately, the realization has dawned late on some of them and they have decided to put up sites.
Here’s what Innocent had to say at the launching of his web-site
I really did not know the power of Internet, till my brother in US called me up and told me that he could read whatever I had written on my site. It is awesome. I am happy that in future my fans all over the world will get to know everything about me on www.innocent.sifymax.com
Mohan Lal made most of the occasion by poking fun in jest at Innocent
I am amazed by Innachanâ€™s knowledge and grasp over worldly matters and the way he is able to reel out his dialogues with clear diction. What baffle me is that how can a guy like him, who has only studied up to 3rd standard do all this?
Actors like Innocent who dont have much experience with the Net can take lessons from Mammotty – arguably the most “techy” actor in Malayalm cinema. [It is ironic that while Mammotty has a fancy for all new and hi-fi gadgets – home theatres, cameras, laptops etc, Mohan Lal on the other hand seem to be obsessed with “old” things like – Old Paintings, Old Naalukettu etc]
Generally its fans who put up the sites of stars – both superstars have their websites. Probably for lesser actors like Innocent, they have to set up their own website and hope to achieve a better reach through it.
So what next – bindupanikkar dot com OR maniyanpillaraju dot net dot in ?
