Powerful Moments

Life is all about tipping points – small incidents which can avalanche into something much bigger (sometimes positive, sometimes negative). Like this scene from one of my all-time favourite films, Udayanaanu Thaaram (translates to Udayan is the star), where Mohanlal (after an ugly drinking-binge and at his vulnerable best), wallows in self-pity to his friend and confidante Mukesh (for once not playing a buffoon):

I’ve lost everything – my career, my wife…everything.

To which Mukesh replies (this sounds more effective in Malayalam hehe),

If you puke on the side of a footpath, will you get everything back?

The rest, as you will see for yourself in the movie, is history.
