It is incredible that people who do not know anything about Chaos Theory or Butterfly Effect send so many forward emails explaining what a chaotic system is. As if they suddenly discovered a new toy, pretend they understand it and want to show it off to everybody. I agree that Dasavatharam and chaos have a connection. It is a very chaotic movie.
One should see Sliding Doors and Run Lola Run on how small changes amplify over time. They would be my best examples of movies based on this concept. Instead one sends emails like "the table caused Kamal to move to the left side, the auto caused Kamal to take a right turn and so everything is chaos theory". That is not the only forwarded email floating around. See this comment section for every forwarded mail regarding Dasavatharam. I understand that the average Damilan needn't know anything about real Dasavatharam and its stories. So I get the fact they are suddenly over excited that there are 10 avatharams and send nonsense mails on their connection to this movie. That mail would have been more logical if it had connected Appa Rao to Duryodhanan. One wonders why they didn't consider SaiBaba (not the 1950s guy, I mean the one with Afro style haircut) to be an avatharam. He does. I bet he is very offended with these forwarded emails. However, I am surprised that educated folks who know to send/receive emails believe so much in that 'What is a chaotic system' forwarded mails that they send it out with staunch belief. Kamalagasan must be laughing his ass off.
No wonder Kamal thought that showing a butterfly on screen is enough to cause a hurricane in people's minds.
P.S: ok. This is my last post on Dasavatharam
