Krishnan Iyer MA Vs Krrish…

Firstly, we thought it was most important that we post this so the break begins a couple of weeks from now. Sorry for cutting your happiness short…

Now if you still don’t have any clue regarding what this post will be all about, let us tell you that you don’t know anything and we mean ANYTHING about Bollywood. Also you don’t know about two of the biggest superheroes of Bollywood. The first and the foremost and the everlasting superhero being Mithun Da (Krishnan Iyer MA is his national award winning character in the movie Agnipath). The second one, the more recent of the two, is supposed to be India’s original superhero Krrish (Hrithik Roshan) (please note the spelling and do not make any mistakes about the same coz numerology has something to do with it).

Now we have been witness to the latest phenomenon called ‘Krrish’ last night and we have something to say about the same. And who other to compare Krrish to other than India’s everlasting superhero Krishnan Iyer MA (we use his character since it suits the surroundings of this blog).

Since, even now you guys seem to be clueless, let us tell you that the theme of this post is ’51 reasons why Krishnan Iyer MA (Kima) is better than Krrish (Krrish)’. Here goes the list.

  • Kima, to begin with, sells only tender coconut water (hence he is fondly referred as Krishnan Iyer MA Naariyalpaaniwaala). Krrish on the other hand acts like an all-in-one-great salesman of Walmart. He manages to advertise and sell a wide range of products from Faber Castell, Bournvita, Tide, Samsung & STAR… phew!!! What a long list? We always thought superheroes are supposed to have powers that are concentrated and Krrish has his fingers in too many bowls and Kima has his powers concentrated on just Tender Coconut water.

  • Kima doesn’t take his father’s dhoti, wear it inside out and instantly turn into a superhero. Krrish does just that. We mean how can you be a superhero when you wear your dad’s suit inside out? Is that how superheroes design their costumes? White dhoti rocks as a superhero costume we say… What about you? (You better concur)

  • Kima as a superhero doesn’t start to dance at every given opportunity unlike Krrish does. We mean, take a look and you will see that Krrish seems to be waiting for a cue to begin dancing to some stupid tune, that is supposedly to be composed by his non-superhero uncle. Kima on the other hand, like great superheroes, waits for awesomely rocking songs like “Hum Lungi Uthati Tumko Disco Dikhati” to groove to and then hits the dance floor. How many of you would like to have a superhero who’s busy dancing in J-49, when the world is being tortured by some strange Mojo Jojo.

  • Kima is a superhero in his own right which means that all of his powers are developed by him all by himself. Krrish on the other hand has all of the powers transferred to him as heritage by Jadoo. Kima can climb walls all by himself and not as a support function provided by some blue & yellow alien in some planet. In short, Kima is natural & Krrish is programmed. Take your pick!!!

  • Kima doesn’t need to have an operative name to function. (given an opportunity he should operate under the name Iyer and that definitely rocks… but we’ll discuss that later). Krrish on the other hand reduces two alpabets from his original name (Krishna) and adds an additional ‘r’ to arrive at his operative name. We would rather prefer someone who doesn’t need an alias to protect this world, coz alias is all clichéd.

  • Taking the above point forward, Krrish, due to lack of education, arrived at his operative name by just adjusting a few alphabets in his original name. Had he been educated, he would have some super operative name like Super-man, Hanu-man, Harbhajan –man et al. Kima on the other hand is superbly educated and has his degree engraved in his name itself. We surely would like a superhero who is “well-read” right?

  • The other 45 reasons are very simple and straight forward and carry the most weightage. Kima is better than Krrish because… Kima is an IYER and Krrish is a Mehra. We mean, what else you expected would carry the most weightage, atleast on this blog. And we can hear it you chanting it aloud… all of you would prefer to have an Iyer for a superhero.

So there… Please go ahead and watch Agnipath, in case you want to see the real superhero “Krishnan Iyer MA, Naariyalpaaniwaala”. And in case you want to see a superhero that writes with Faber Castell pencils, drinks Bournvita, uses Tide to wash his super-clothes, rides a Hero Honda in case he runs out of his flying powers, speaks on a Samsung phone to convey his ideas to his sidekick, and only sees STAR News to find what is going wrong in this world... please be our guest and watch Krrish. He is not a superhero; he is a super-brand-ambassador.

It is pathetic to say the least. But again, it’s our opinion and like most of the times, this also could be wrong…

adios…

How could you miss this - Krishnan Iyer MA Naarialpaniwala shortens perfectly to his operative name - Kiman. just like Superman, Batman, Spiderman, Hanuman etc. etc. As opposed to just Kima.
Yes. One is extremely jobless, right now.

certainly... If KIMA would have been given such a midia coverage on release of Agnipath... these Krrish maker will never be able to claim as first super hero of India..

you are sick people who cannot enjoy a film like Krrish. I think your objection is baseless and vile .
be more positive next time otherwise bitterness will make you bite your own nose

@last anon, this is OUR space and we write whatever we want... learn to criticize what is written rather than who wrote it... you make me feel like puking my entire gut out (on you ofcourse)
