The Man Who Sued God is a 2001 Australian movie in which Billy Connolly plays Steve Myers, an ex-lawyer who sues God because his boat is struck by lightning, and his insurance company refuses to pay, claiming it to be an act of God. By claiming to be God’s representatives on Earth, the Christian churches and Jewish synagogues are held to be the liable party, putting them in the difficult position of either having to pay large sums of money, or prove that God does not exist.

Modhi Vilayadu

Modhi Vilayadu (2009) narrates the story about Uday Vasudev and his tryst with  (borrowed) identity. The film raises the question: What if you have lived a lie all your life?

The film introduces Uday, Rajan Vasudev, Chanakya and Eswari and begin to feel sad for them. Why?

You feel sad for

  • Uday(for the lie he lived)
  • Rajan Vasudev (for the life he lived)
  • Chanakya (for the false life he loved)
  • Madan (for the life he never lived)
  • Eswari(for the lie she believed)

People spell LIFE as: I, IF, LIE, LIFE

Life has to be spelt as LIFE!

How do you face the truth about yourself?  How do you let go false identity? How do you let go ‘borrowed’ identity?

How do you live your life – in all its fullness?
