Two letters sometimes denotes an era
This ad of DC made me think that finally DC has shifted from sensuality to sensibility. “Wow” was my first expression toward the hoarding on my first sight of it near Tidel Park, “nice piece of creativity from the ad agency” was what I told to myself, I thought it definitely would be a hit, but the excitement existed only till my second look on it turning around from my bike, and now I added an S before the hit. Now, go to the top and read the caption again, it should have been “denote” not “denotes”. This mistake seems to be silly but it is not so. To me, it raises the following questions:
1. Is an error in subject–verb agreement acceptable for a newspaper?
2. Was it the mistake of the copywriter or the publisher or was it a typo?
3. Has anyone proofread the content?
4. How come a grammatical error happens in a one-liner.
DC needs to be Definitely Careful.

The other shot feature in Ayu Ezh.. is the different colour tones used for Maddy, Siddharth and Surya depicting their natures. This comes from the renowned Polish director Kieślowski whose colour trilogy films of Red, Blue and White were amongst the most celebrated in world cinema. The films bear a colour tone reflecting the theme of the movies, which "Mani the great" did in a single movie.
Even the sequence of Meera Jasmin in which she aborts her child to express her disgust towards Madhavan is shot from a Bengali short story, for which I don't have a source.
This what we call "inspiration" for which people like music director Deva are inhumanly criticized. For heaven's sake, tamil directors please make tamil cinema.
