A few words (or rather, paragraphs) about Rajesh…

Rajesh, born at Coimbatore was interested towards movies from a very young age. The first film he saw was ‘Jaws’, after which he was awestruck with excitement, and from then on, had seenhell of a lot of movies in many languages. Rajesh started writing in English, with www.scorpsay.com in 2006, and then started his Tamil blog www.karundhel.com in 2009 Dec, which had become one of the widely read blogs very soon. When it comes to reviews, the articles in www.karundhel.com are unbiased, and focus on the pros and cons of the films.

Rajesh has great interest towards the art of storytelling and screenwriting, and started writing about the screenwriting Guru Syd Field two years ago in his blog, and from May 2013, his articles covering the screenwriting nuances of Tamil films loosely based on Syd Field’s book ‘Screenplay’ were published on a weekly basis in Dinagaran vellimalar, for more than a year, concluding during June 2014. The book was launched on Sep 22, 2014. Rajesh had published an ebook about Lord of the Rings in collaboration with his mentor Hollywood Bala who took care of the book design, and Saravanaganesh (kolandha) in 2012, which was widely read among the tamil blog readers.

Rajesh specializes in screenplay analysis, and is a Screenplay consultant. He made his debut as a screenplay consultant in the successful sci-fi ‘Indru Netru Naalai. He also conducts screenplay workshops in film institutes. He had translated short stories from Tamil to English as well. Together with his Wife Shree Vani and their son Nithil, he enjoys life @ Bangalore.

  10. இன்னங்க ஐயா.
    ரொம்ப நாளா ஆங்கில படங்களுக்கான விமர்சனங்கள் வரவில்லை. உங்களுடைய விமர்சங்களின் அடிப்படையிலதான் படம் பார்க்கவோ அல்லது DVD வாங்கவோ வேண்டும்.

    அது சரி எப்படி விமர்சனங்கள் எழுதுகின்றீர்கள். ஒரு முறை பார்த்தால் படத்தின் கதை வடிவம்புரிந்துவிடுகிறதா?
    திரைக்கதையின் நெளிவு சுளிவுகள் தெரிந்து விடுமா?
    நானும் முயற்சித்து பார்த்தே ஆனால் முடியவில்லை

    நான் கடைசியாக பாா்த்தப்படம் இன்டிபென்டஸ் டே படம் மகா மொக்கை… இது என்னுடைய கருத்து

    உங்கள் கருத்துக்குத் தான் காத்திருக்கின்றேன்
