A worthy Journalist with a nom(de plume?) that evoked a guitar god, once took on the challenge of writing for the desi mobs on the internet.
A certain film featuring a certain south indian film star was the excuse for Stan Winston (of George lucas/ Steven Speilberg’s Industrial Light and Magic/ Stan Winston studios fame) to be the brand namee that gave enough credibility for hollywood press to start beginning to push a sixty one year old near mummified south Indian star’s latest new release film.
He (Hendrix) reckoned without the mob internet desi. They will NOT be promoted to. The Jurrat!
SO without any more ado here, we present, the Responses to Mr Hendrix’ Salon.com article(which, to be fair to him, sounds like any filmfare article from the 70’s when rajinikanth was trying to cross over into Hindi films.
The original Article is here, but this piece is an abstraction of the Ten most entertaining responses from the desi mobs that populate the internet. (found if you scroll below in the article)

C. Wrong hendrix..The world : created by a clown.
Mobster 3: Who the hell is this Clown “Grady Hendrix” first of all. Is he the one who created the world? This is yet another clear example of what will be the output if a brainless buffalo mates with a female pig in a sewage disposal tank. Yes you guessed it correct, the output will be this “Grady Hendrix”. I dont know from where these zombies originate from

Mobster 5: If hez an unknown one, why the hell u guys want to know about him and writes about him here?
F. The Psycho babble mobster:
Mobster 6 : Grady Hendrix…u want to get a lot of public attention…try other means before making sensational claims about the tamil film industry and the superstar Rajinikanth…ur understanding and description is pathetic and looks pre motivated… doesn’t make a difference to what Rajini is all about and the contribution he makes to the film industry…
G. The Pauncha loha Idol (the next three mob bosses)
Mobster 7 :Rajini does not have a paunch… what the hell are u talkin abt.. admitted that he is bald… but no paunch… publish such stuff about Rajini at your own risk…
as disputed by mobster 8 : He has a paunch and it jiggles..
Mobster 9: We will petition for the writer to Apologize at least on two counts:
1. Rajnikanth doesn’t have a Paunch.
2. We are not Bolywood’s poor cousin
H. Fact Checking mobster: who corrects the confusing punch dialog with an even more confusing , bizzare version)
Mobster 10: About his punch dialogues : He wont say
“I will do what I say. I will also do what I don’t say.”
He will only say
“I will do what I say. I will say what i will do”
– Don’t publish wrong comments about Rajini
There’s pages and pages of this , but as they say in Rome…or Paree….a good mob induced riot is its own reward.
