I RUN MY OWN PRIVATE RACE

RIGHT FROM SCHOOLDAYS I HAVE NEVER FELT THE NEED TO BE COMPETITIVE. I CANT FOLLOW INSTRUCTIONS. CLEARLY MOST OTHERS DONT SEE THINGS MY WAY. COMPETITION IS NO LAUGHING MATTER FOR THEM. FAIR ENOUGH. BUT I FAIL TO UNDERSTAND WHO U R COMPETING WITH. IS THERE A FINITENESS TO A FIGHT ?

I happend to watch your movie "Thirakkadha" recently You have given a brilliant performance,
you have got into the skin and soul of ajay chandran as an actor.The movie as a whole comes as an eminent piece of work which draws the thread through 3 actors.but the credit for movie's success goes entirely to you and priya.Wish you Good Luck Sir

Yo man! It would be nice to see you blog regularly. I would suggest you to avoid capital letters in the body of the blog post, for it makes reading slightly uncomfortable. Happy to congratulate you in person (@ PRS Trivandrum) for the performance in Thirakkatha. Best wishes again!

pen-kutti said...

heya, found about this blog through wikipedia. I have been tracking your performances, literally, after I saw you in a serial (i don't remember the name now) starring jaya bharathi. you played her son-in-law in that serial. And then, i quite predicted you'll make it one day. Btw, this is Swapna from Ahmedabad.

hi anoop,

its a crime u stopped blogging.

u were awesome in thirakadha! but thats takes a second stage whn u hav come up with a script of that like PK.
pls dont stop writing, i w'd like to work and learn under you as a person who loves serious and innovative cinema whr the cretors stick to the basics of filmmaking as much as possible.

In a 100meter race, there is competition and there is a winner...and looser. but not in real life. trained to be competitive from our childhood,many times we forgets that life is so resourceful to make everyone a winner.so we compete with everyone....our own spouses,parents,siblings and even children!!!at times we have to compete and we have to win. but when to, to whom to&how to compete. Unless we strike a balance , we will loose the best things in life ....inspite of being a world winner.Hi anoop...its a joy to go thru ur blog. to know ur ideas.ur a good actor...but feels u have still few more masks to remove to become worldclass. Am an ENT surgeon from Ernakulam. By the way any one ever wrote u like this..(njaan ivide jeevichirikkunnu)....i think i know who wrote

vineetha said...

Hi,

Is there a reason why you type in caps?

sujata said...

Healthy competition is to some extend is good. Having independent views of oneself makes one more powerful by not jumping into assumptions. Hope you are not carried away by emotions. If this is the way which will make you happy it is the best way for you to live. Doesn't mean you can run away from responsibilities. The suggestions from others should not affect you. You are the master of your self.

When we become an individual in life,there is no need for 'instructions'.And in life when we feel that we can't follow instructions,there lies the maturity point in self.Henceforth we run our own race!!!! there is nobody to compete with,except self!!
when you are in the right crowd,you will feel that most others see things your way...and there lies the point of comfort in self!!
I dont feel that your thoughts are odd and such thoughts definitely increase our mental power.I strongly believe that it will give an insight into the importance of 'knowledge' in humanlife,,, AGAIN!!.
You will definitely succeed in your own race,friend.Best wishes.

sudheer said...

Dude..
we met once on the porch of Hotel Grand on a night. I was with another actor and we exchanged phone numbers. since then I am trying to connect with you. I haven't seen much of ur cameo roles but thirakatha..I was more interested in the writer in you..is there any way we can talk?

Sudheer
in case you recognise me (or rather care to recognise me :-) ) drop a line to mohansudheer@yahoo.com and that would be awesome..

humm said...

Saw thirakatha today, brilliant movie, loved ur performance.Iam still recovering from my thirakatha hangover which undoubtedly will stay on for a while.......

Naveen Nair said...

dear anoop,all the best for your future concerns.I like your views since I am also having similar views about life and i don't believe in praising ourself for the gifts given to us by god that you also did in one of interviews I liked it .Keep ur humbleness for ever.Anoop you can be the best.

I think Competition occurs naturally between living organisms which co-exist in the same environment.

Hi

it will be better if you change the blog appearance. The white letters in black makes eyes difficult to read.
Black letters in white or light color background would be cool for reading.

Hope you will get time to do this.

Aswathy Gopal said...

Hello Anoop,
"I RUN MY OWN PRIVATE RACE". This statement itself gives the ans for all your doubts..... The biggest competitor for u is urself,others cum only after tht............

This is what I feel personally............

Aavani Thampi said...

hi,
you are an awsome upcoming actor in malayalam film industry. I started noticing you after reading the interview that u have given for VANITHA. In that you had mentioned about a friend(cancer victim)who had shared her last thoughts with you, when you both were sitting in a sea shore. Whenever i saw you in cinemas I think of those words in that magazine.

Then....best wishes for your future...

I read somewhere that u were the first rank holder in LLB. If u dont believe in competition, how did u manage to secure the rank. I dont believe that u were laid bak, and didnt prepare since law is such a bleak subject.

Bramha said...

Dear Anoop,
You are competing all the time. However, maybe unknowingly, your competion is not external. It is internal, constantly within yourself. You set your own standards and being detached from them, those appear as being successful to others around you. Dont know if I made sense !
Kind regards Bramha

Dinesh Dinu said...

dear anoop chetta,

it is nice to see ur films, yesterday i saw ur movie "trivandrum lodge" , it is a good movie. but let me tell u my personal views, the film is good , u has potrayed urself as an business man with loves wife so much and as a person who a not ready to move away from the smell of ur wife even after her death.

but dont u think u ppl are projecting the views of a society?? if we liberalise the view of sex , dont u think its dangerous? its good to remove some inhibitions but sometimes the line between both is so fragile....


let me tell u what u believe, THE PURPOSE OF ART IS JUST CREATION, IT HAS A STRONG UNDERCURRENT, THAT IS UPLIFTMENT, THE ART SHOULD BE ABLE TO ELEVATE PPL.

to put it simple, when we get out off our seat, ww should feel positive( may be spiritually).
