After ‘Demonetization Anthem’, a Tamil film song pokes fun at GST

The track ‘GST’, from ‘Annadurai’, compares his sorry love life to the Goods and Services Tax.

After Silambarasan’s Demonetization Anthem from the movie Thatrom Thukrom, it is the turn of Tamil actor and music composer’s Vijay Antony’s GST song from Annadurai to take a dig at the Goods and Services Tax. The rant compares the tax regimen to the lead character’s sorry love life.

GST maari neeyum enna vechu seiyara, sollama kollama vandhu ennanavo pannura: Like the GST, you [the woman] have screwed my case, coming into my life with a bang without any notice,” Arun Bharathi’s lyrics state.

However, the song will not feature in the movie, which has been directed by G Srinivasan and stars Antony as a convict who seeks revenge after being released from prison. The Central Board of Film Certification has reportedly dropped the word and replaced it with “EMI” in the film. According to a report in the Tamil newspaper Dinamalar, the song is being re-recorded without the offensive word.

As of now, however, the track says it like it is: “I have lost sleep and my blood pressure has increased.”

A phone so stunning that it deserves its own photoshoot

Presenting the Moto X4, crafted to perfection.

Precision-crafted glass and metal design, an anodised aluminium frame, easy to hold and featuring beautiful contours, the Moto X4 is crafted to perfection indeed.

With the distinctive placement of the rear cameras, this phone makes a great subject for a photographic series.

Reclining on a bed of satin, the glass-encased phone blends into the folds of the luxurious fabric.

The slimness, seamlessness and solidity of the phone make for a great profile shot.

A stunning design which is IP68 rated water-resistant too, it is as beautiful as it is strong.

We partnered with photographer Gaurav Sawn to create this series. Says Gaurav, “The glass sandwich design looks extremely good and the reflections on the back panel make the phone stand out. This is a phone that is best used without a case. The curved corners were also very comfortable to hold. All in all, really enjoyed shooting this phone!”

While this phone is elegant and crafted to perfection, it is also extremely tough, being protected from scratches with Corning® Gorilla® Glass that stretches all the way around.

You don’t need to sacrifice of performance either. It’s packed with a 2.2 GHz octa-core Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ 630 processor and comes with a TurboPower™ Charger which means hours of power in minutes!

For the music lover, this phone is a boon. With simultaneous connectivity of up to four Bluetooth® audio devices at the same time, you can build your own stereo system without worrying about cables.

The dual rear cameras – a 12MP that lets you focus faster and get great results even on dark, cloudy days, and an 8 MP camera, with wide angle lens makes your most ambitious photos look all the more impressive.
