CBC VIBGYOR Blogtag 2 – Yellow

This post is part of the Chennai Bloggers Club‘s CBC VIBGYOR BLOG TAG 2 where
some of us will write a post on the colours of VIBGYOR each day
starting 1st of May to the 7th of May, 2020.

While I was thinking of various things to write about Yellow and I was even looking to write about films in Indian Cinema which tried to use Yellow color to convey a story. When I randomly stumbled upon a movie which I loved so much for the Martial arts and the way it handled so many genres in one movie which was a rarity in Hollywood. Yes, I am talking about the movie in the header image of this Blog post, Kill Bill.

The Color Yellow in a film denotes so many things but when it is attached to the character and in this case Uma Thurman’s dress color is Yellow and the way the story proceeds we can associate with Madness or Obsessiveness or both owing to her past with the Bill and his squad who tried to kill her and her unborn baby. I presume Quentin Tarantino was trying to convey how obsessive “The Bride” is to avenge her unborn’s death. For people who haven’t watched the movie please do watch it without Kids because the movie is a blood bath and you don’t want kids to witness that.

I am also reminded by the song “Manjal Veyil Maalayile” from the movie Vettayaadu Vilayaadu, rendered by mellifluous Hariharan for S. Thamarai’s lyrics. I really don’t know why I remembered this song but I was thinking of writing about this song and sharing the URL to the video. Such a pleasant song it was describing the Night life of the New York city.

See you in the next post. Ciao 🙂

Ah! Quentin Tarantino – one of my favourite directors. The soundtrack of Kill Bill was playing in my mind while started this post. Blood and gore all the way = QT!

Why add that Kamal film and spoil the spirit of Tarantino!

Enjoyed reading this.

    Ha ha ha… That song was the first queue when I started writing for the Yellow theme. Hence, I mentioned that as well. It’s been a long time since I revisited Kill Bill, should do it sometime. 😊
    Thank you Susuan.
