Beauty is Botox deep

I am told these days getting a Botox job done has become as common as putting Amrutanjan for talavali. Atleast that's what it looks like. Visited a reputed parlour last month and there were brochures and brochures on what Botox is all about. Cut to dermatologist. When did Sori, padai, Sirangu doctor become a beauty expert? Enakku konjam ancient-a feeling aavudu... 'coz this guy had fultoo posters on crow feet, mynaa forehead, kuruvi chin etcetra. And there were ladies walking in and out of his clinic for Botox (naa patients' register paathene :-p)

Cut to home. One relative maami wondering how Hema malini is looking so youth at 62.And Siridevi's 'Siri' is intact without any flaws even now. Dho-da!

In my opinion, all Botox jobs make you look like a palli. You end up with just one expression post Botox. It's a weird combo of azhugai-sirippu. Here are some of the baddest Botox jobs I have seen recently.

1. Gauri Khan. This expression only I was talking about in the earlier paragraph. Imagine her screaming at Saaruk khan for putting eera towel on the bed with this expression. Kaamedy-a illa? One Botox, and this expression is what you will end up 24*7



2. Vikram. Late entry in the field. Two flops back to back. Thanks to daadi and all pal tried to camouflage his age a bit, but oflate with all youth-action roles going to the under 30s, this over 40 mama had to had to get an urgent Botox job done. Look at the photo below.Once again the, I-have-had-velakkennai-but-I-am-pretending-to-love-it expression.



3. Hema malini-ji - Can't blame her. Two vettu daughters. One (unofficial) purusan trying to act in some Yamla Pagla type flop movies. Somebody has to earn in the family to keep the ulai burning, no? With fellow Botox-an Amitabh Bahchan-ji giving vaazhvu to the likes of Hema malini-ji in Amma-Appa-pyaar hai type of films and Pothy's types signing her for endorsements, Paatti.. sorry Akka-vukku vaazhvudaan. Botox ki Jai Ho!


4. Nita Ambani. For all her patronage to Botox , she and purusan can buy a Cricket team and get Botox to sponsor it also. Periya edam. But same azhugai-sirippu thanks to Botox.


5. Saarukh kaan. When Botox happens on the face, the neck is ignored. You start resembling the 'Oanaan' family. This guy is frowning and there are no lines on his forehead / between the eyebrows. Looks maha weird. The picture down is from a teaser promo of a new show he is hosting. Wait till the main promo is on air. Saaruk and Chameleon #sameguy only.


6. Shobhaaaa Deeee. The main reason for her to write books like 'Shobhaa at Sixty' 'Seruppadi at Seventy' etc is only for media and her Page 3 'mwaah' 'mwaah' friends to cover the launch of the book and write/ say "Mwaah Mwaah, Shobhaa you don't look 60..mwah mwaah". Don't believe me? Watch this (01:00 onwards). Her next book should be titled 'Botox since twenty'.

This blog post is a result of a serious addiction in the family. Husb and I have become like participants of Pappaiya Pattimandrams. We watch anything on TV - Bollywood films, interviews, even news for that matter we start our ''Ivan/ Ival Botox-a illaya?" debate.

Haai! Idea! I think I should suggest this 'Tamizh peNgalukku Botox - Azhaga, illaya?" to 'Neeya Naana' Gopinath. He will izhuttify and make a two hour show featuring the greats like Sugasini, Kuyili, tundu beedi TV actors, failed directors and that again will bring me back to writing yet another post on Botox. What say?

Indha Shobha De kezhavi thaangala. Also, Parameshwar Godrej! I don't know how anyone in their right mind can call her beautiful. Biology lab specimen maari iruka. Another such ageless acclaimed beauty is Shahnaz Hussain. It'd have been true in her case if it had been a pageant for dead lionesses.

Er, engey kidaikkum intha botox?

Awesome research paper!

Paul S Jenkins said...

I honestly believe the quality of botox injections and ultimately, how people look after using them depends wholly on the professionalism of who administered them.

Oh my kadavule! I thought I was the only person with an obsession for plastic surgery investigations. Really funny post :)).
Botox is now a timepass procedure. How about nose jobs, lip jobs (eg: lip-faced Tamannah), etc. Big boss Shetty infact remarked in an interview that nose jobs are as common as eye-brow threading. I am not advertising for them, but am a fan of this site:
PLASTICDESIS(DOT)COM
where I get my regular dose of information. :) Unfortunately no tamil stars here.
