It’s so nice to see finally Sri Lankans have taken initiations to make localized games for Sri Lankan market. First such game I saw is, Operation Thopigala where Army soldiers is getting into LTTE base in Thopigala and confront them in commando style.
Later I found there was a game release followed by success full movie ABBA. ABBA was a mobile game, and many people are pleased to see Sri Lankan heritage on mobile as a game.
Recently Sri Lankan game developers have released a new game in Sinhala. Colomba wata (Around Colombo) is a mobile based game where you’re a taxi driver and need to drive around Colombo. Check out the cool video that I got from the site.
Colombo Ride (“Colomba wate”) : The first Sinhala mobile game of its kind has finally arrived. The game is available for free download on any network anywhere in the world. So join in and play the most anticipated mobile game in Sri Lankan history.
This kind of initiations should be encouraged and people should support these people. Atleast download and play the game and report errors, therefore they can improve the quality of the game. One day we can introduce our games to international market.
Adiye kolluthey is perhaps the first Tamil song ever played over Channel [V]. It’s a honor to Tamil cinema folks (???). Normally Channel V is dominated by Bollywood songs and they don’t give a shit about South Talents.
The scenario has changed with Vaaranam Aayiram’s ‘Adiye Kolludhe’ breaking the jinx of “no southern songs on [V]”. Vaaranam Aayiram stars Suriya, Sameera Reddy, Divya Spandana and Simran. Harris Jayaraj has composed its music. Sony BMG owns the audio rights of Vaaranam Aayiram.
Last week I watched the movie. You can watch the movie for surya. Sameera Retty is so damn cute. Many of my friends Criticized this movie, but why do they compare this movie with the movies made for awards. Its purly a commercial film and it has all the essence that is necessary to a commercial movie.
Adiye kolluthey is my favourite among the songs.
Trivia: ‘Adiye Kolludhe’ was sung by Kamal Haasan’s daughter Shruthi (male voice: Krish) and it was released by Rajinikanth’s daughter Soundarya!
Check out the video “Adiye Kolluthey” (hey, it’s killing me)

Google News is a service offered by Google where you can see collected news from various portals. Recently Google has launched Google Tamil (India). For my surprise they have given a category for Sri Lanka.
Google News Tamil is my new home page in Firefox browser. As a Tamil I’m so happy and no one can defy the importance of Tamil in internet due to its potential market. Good job Google.
Early days I hardly see a site to download Tamil movies, but today there are enough sites offering Tamil movie downloads. Just like music pirate (in MP3 format), Tamil movie pirate also very hot in the internet these days.
At last Google has given long awaited Tamil Interface for Gmail. Whole interface is now given in Tamil and some dominant Indian regional languages (اردو (Urdu) , मराठी (Marathi), हिन्दी (Hindi), বাংলা (Bangla), ગુજરાતી (Gujarati), ଓଡିଆ (Oriya), தமிழ் (Tamil), తెలుగు (Telugu), ಕನ್ನಡ (Kannada) and മലയാളം (Malayalam).
