Facebook introduces video on Instagram

June 22, 2013 5 comments

BaltNEW YORK: Facebook is adding video to its popular photo-sharing app Instagram, following in the heels of Twitter’s growing video-sharing app, Vine.

Instagram co-founder Kevin Systrom said on Thursday that users will be able to record and share 15-second clips by tapping a video icon in the app. They can also apply filters to videos to add contrast, make them black and white or different hues.

“This is the same Instagram we all know and love but it moves,” he said at an event held at Facebook’s Menlo Park, California, headquarters.

Vine, which launched in January, has 13 million users and lets people create and share 6-second video clips. Instagram has 100 million users, up from 20 million when Facebook bought the company more than a year ago. If users like it, Facebook’s move could propel mobile video sharing into the mainstream.

To use the video feature, Instagram users can tap on the same camera icon they use to snap photos. A new video camera icon will appear on the right side. Tap it and a screen with a red video button will let you record clips of sunsets, kids running in parks or co-workers staring at their computer screens.

The app will record as long as your finger is on the red button or for 15 seconds, whichever comes first. Not unlike Vine, taking your finger off the button will stop the recording, allowing you to shoot the scene from a different angle or record something else altogether. Once you have 15 seconds of footage, you can play it from the beginning and post it on Instagram to share with others.

Given Vine’s popularity, “it is perhaps more surprising that Facebook has not introduced video for Instagram sooner. There is no doubt Twitter will move quickly to up the ante on Vine and this could undercut Facebook’s efforts with video on Instagram,” said Eden Zoller, principal consumer analyst at Ovum, a technology research firm.

and the photographer took Omar and his recruiting team photo including Viswa,Mamu and Nasser. The scene moved to the terrorists who were in shoot training and they used George Bush as main target la and at night, Omar brings Viswa to his house where there is doctor who was anEnglish girl that treat Omar’s wife(Khadija) and Omar asked the doctor to leave without treating his wife la. He asked Khadija to close mouth by covering the scarf la and he introduced Viswa to her and also Omar’s son named Nasra and that time Nasra was talking English with Khadija. Omar asked Nasra who called the doctor and why he was talking English because Omar hate English peoples so he banned his peoples talking English la and Jalal was an English school teacher and he helped Nasra to learn English but Omar asked Jalal when the last time he broke Jalal leg from the result where Jalal taught Nasra and even Omar had buried that schoo when he heard Nasra was studying there la.

Sheikh came and his name was Tawfeeq and he gave a gift to Viswa as Viswa kept that safely in the bag la. The next day, Omar bring Viswa to the special place where Omar was not mentioning the place name and the shocked news was Omar went to Osama place and he met Osama but as soon they were talking suddenly American helicopter came to that Omar’s place and the American killed several terrorist as Viswa asked Omar to calm down since Omar’s wife,son and Jalal were hiding in the another house where they need to be saved but suddenly Omar’s friend was killed and Omar was really angry and again try to fight but suddenly a blast where Omar being injured badly la and Viswa asked them to carry Omar to the truck and rescued him while Viswa will try to save Khadija,Nasra and Jalal but while he want to save the 3 of them suddenly a rocket was shot at their hiding place and they were died la.
The flashback was finished and the scene show Viswa house as Nirupama still confused what were happened around here la and Ashmita used medicine to treat him and Viswa asked his mama (which now he will called him as Sir) to burn all the papers and the papers were burned and one microchip look like sim card was burnt too. Then Viswa went to his room and cut his long hair to short hair. After he finished cutting his hair, Nirupama was amazed of Viswa new looks la and as they are ready to escape, FBI was coming to his house and Viswa asked Dawkins to escape first from house because FBI will not suspect on him since his face looks like American and Viswa removed one of his cupboard where there will be a door that lead to the basement la and Nirupama got shocked because she not even know this basement room. They both escaped via car and at the same time, Omar with Salim chasing them until Omar stop chasing them when Omar reached highway as he told that FBI would caught them and his Salim asked to Omar that Viswa was a good person in Afghanistan but why he suddenly changed la but Omar told that he the only one know how bad and dangerous Viswa is. The flashback come back to Afghanistan.
Omar try to calm down the fighting between the terrorists and Tawfeeq since many of them suspected Tawfeeq as the traitor but Omar does not believed and terrorists asked Omar to check Tawfeeq’s bag and he found only the gift that was gave to Viswa and he asked Salim to hold that gift and he seeing nothing problem but suddenly there is a red dot and when Omar open the gift, it was American radio signal which can detect their location. Omar was totally angry and hit Tawfeeq with stick and ask other terrorists to punish Tawfeeq. The next day show that Tawfeeq being hanged and died and again the flashback was finished.
Before that,Omar had called his other partner to clean the evidence and that partner put the bomb on that place and quickly went away la. Nirupuma asked to Viswa because she do not know where they are going and he answered by going to her place and she was shocked but Viswa told to her that Deepak was collaborating with Omar by using cesium and actually at first Nirupama never know the main goal of Deepak when she was helping him but after Viswa told everything then only she got to know and Nirupama quote to Viswa “Nenge nallavara kettavara?” which means she asked to him whether he is good or bad and he told that he is also good but somehow bad and when Viswa throwing money on the air, that time, the flashback was shown back to Afghanistan where the scene where Tawfeeq gave a gift to Viswa and when he going to put that gift in the bag suddenly there is one person who was Viswa’s men bring another similar to that gift and put that on his bag and then the scene move on when Viswa was escaping with his man and he asking to his man why he not removed and destroyed the gift after signalling the location because due to their mistake, Tawfeeq was hang killed but Viswa’s man answered it back by telling Tawfeeq is not one of his religion or caste( I was so confused).
The flashback was finished when the money who was thrown by Viswa was laying down and he went to Deepak place and check the transactions where most of name came from with name of Abbasi and he was from Nigeria la but at the same time,Omar’s partner who had leave that place and went to some place which he can see the bomb place and he detonated it.

The scene move back to the cesium-bomb scene where the ending was Nirupama came to that room to help Viswa since she was doctor specialist, she saw a microwave and she took that microwave and open the microwave door and put that to the top of that bomb and she explained to them that by putting microwave on top of the bomb, the bomb cannot be detonate by anyone since its cannot detect the signal to detonate la and the final was all were walking and Viswa said this is not the ending where there will be a continue and then show Viswapooram 2 trailer! The movie ends.
Shebby Final Prediction : 3.5/5

Vijay’s Thuppaki Review – First Day First Show Report


One of the key reasons for Thuppaki’s sky high expectations is because the movie marks the beginning of Vijay’s strategy to working with top rung directors (barring Shankar’s Nanban which was a faithful remake of 3 Idiots). This is probably the best line-up of crew members and technicians for a Vijay movie. On the casting side, Kajal Aggarwal, Vidyut, Sathyan, Jayaram have provided the required support for Vijay to showcase his talent.  Does the script keep you engaged throughout the running time of 2 hour 45 minutes? Will Thuppaki uplift the festive mood this Diwali? Definitely, Yes.

The story opens in Mumbai with a bomb blast in a public bus. Jagdish (Vijay) is on a mission to find the terrorist gang and people behind the blast. There are twists and unexpected turns along the way. The story has enough ammo to fire up Vijay’s fan base.

Thuppakki is Vijay; Vijay is Thuppakki


Vijay has carried the movie from start to finish with his self-assured confidence and trade-mark style. The script makes frequent switch-overs from intense sleeper cell scenes to commercial love/comedy scenes. Vijay was able to make some bumpy transitions look convincing with his acting abilities. As always, Vijay dances effortlessly and comedy comes to him naturally. Vijay’s costumes, pleasant looks and mischievous expressions will surely win him more female fans. Vijay looks fit and younger in his toned muscular physique.

Story, Direction and Screenplay


AR Murugadoss’ engaging story is narrated in gray tones balanced with commercially colourful compromises. The movie may have minor similarities to Ramana which has worked out well again. Murugadoss has done his homework by consulting ex-CBI chief Karthikeyan and the details are blended in nicely while dumbing it down for audience. AR Murugadoss has intentionally slowed down the pacing and narration in critical scenes (e.g., Hospital security chief conversation in the terrace) to get the message across. The dialogues about common people’s (un)willingness to put their life at risk to fight terrorism are well written and delivered by Vijay. Also, the hero putting his sister in a high-risk operation provides the impetus and emotional connect with the audience.

It is interesting to note that the villain (Vidyut) tracks down the hero instead of other way around, which is usually seen. Another aspect which is told subtlely is Vijay’s undercover act passing off as a common man similar to the way terrorist sleeper cells operate. Vijay’s exterminating the sleeper cell operations in Mumbai is not revealed to his lover, family or others (except his cop friend Sathyan). This aspect could have been underlined a bit for additional impact and stronger appreciation for Jagdish’s character.

The love/comedy scenes and songs definitely stick out like sore thumb since they are not integrated well with the story line. It is understandable why AR Murugadoss had to make these compromises. We are pointing this out without really complaining since such intrusions have become essential to satisfy the fan base and common audience with diverse set of expectations.

Highlights 


  • Stylish portrayal of Vijay in anti-terrorism operations have a perfect closure with mass elements. For instance, scenes such as simultaneous execution of 12-for-12 sleeper cell killings at precisely the same minute, sister rescue scenes with sniffer dog, and the final scene where he symbolically blows up the ship with his hand gesture and subsequent punch dialogue before villain killing are sure treats for fans.
  • AR Murugadoss seems to have taken a tip from his association with Aamir Khan in Ghajini Hindi remake. Upon Aamir’s insistence, some emotional scenes involving Asin’s memory were added after climax action sequences in Hindi version. AR Murugadoss has used similar finish in Thuppakki giving a nice emotional touch and meaning to the movie by extolling the virtues of army.
  • Kajal has done her role exceptionally well in perking up the lighter moments with her expressions, dance moves in songs and chirpy love scenes laced with humour. Kajal has good scope in both “Antarctica” song (interesting concept) and “Alaika Laika” (showcasing her dance moves). Kajal’s presence enlivens the scenes and songs for people looking for relief from action scenes.
  • Santhosh Sivan‘s Cinematography and Sreekar Prasad‘s editing keep the narration tight despite relatively long running time. The candid capture of Mumbai adds to the style and character of the city. Santosh’s fast working style is critical to the successful shooting of scenes in real locations in Mumbai. Harris scores big in the final minutes with his song (“Poi Varavaa“) dedicated to army jawans which is sure to leave a lump in your throat. Harris’ BGM keeps up the pace and makes the operations look convincing with his theme track.

What could have been better?


  • Song picturizations look low-budget. Almost 4 out of 5 songs solely rely on Vijay’s dance moves, which gets a bit repetitive for general public. AR Murugadoss and Santhosh Sivan have pulled out some of the old tricks of picturizing the songs in big stadiums, by using bright incandescent lights in the background to make it look richer. Vijay’s introduction song “Kutti Puli Kootam” and opening fight scenes are speed breakers right after the word “go”.
  • Screenplay could have been tighter. Even though the individual scenes were riveting, the bigger purpose required to latch the audience interest lacks full conviction. The objective of killing the head of sleeper-cell (Vidyut) lacks macro-connection resulting in lack of depth for Vijay vs Vidyut’s clash. Some of the lengthy climax fight sequences in the ship could have been trimmed. The final 10+ minutes of man-to-man combat scenes with Vidyut led to some chatter among audience.

Bottomline


With right promotions and word of mouth reaching out to neutral and family audience, Thuppakki is well positioned to get tagged along with Ghilli and  Pokiri.
