Director: Sudha Kongara, Gautham Menon
Reviewer: George Sylex
Overview - The Covid-19 and Lockdown circumstances has opened a couple of entryways for filmmakers, who have discovered some motivation in the midst of this claustrophobic circumstances. The recently delivered Tamil anthology Putham Pudhu Kaalai, at present gushing on Amazon Prime, utilizes the cozy limits for recounting stories. Coordinated by five unique filmmakers the short movies of 25 minutes each, centers significantly around very much obeyed people and families handling long-standing psychological barriers. Stories of miracle occurrences, renewed opportunities and glad endings is the means by which Putham Pudhu Kaalai, that generally means a sparkling and brilliant new sunrise, can be appropriately depicted.
Ilamai Idho Idho - Sudha Kongara
Adapting reference from Mani Ratnam's style of sentiment, Sudha Kongara's Ilamai Idho Idho is about abandoned love and lost youth. It rejuvenates a story of a man who remembers his childhood in his brain. Helping you to remember days of old days, the homegrown clashes indicated are practically relatable. At the point, when the PM declares a lockdown, Jayaram and Urvashi who play sweethearts, get spirited without their relatives. Kalidas Jayaram, who is the son of Jayaram, speaks to the new age of darlings. Kalyani Priyadarshan is his accomplice. Sudha handles the subject quite well, and has made her cast work done consummately.
Avarum Njanum/Avalum Nanum - GVM
Avarum Nanum/Avalum Nanum transports us to the second story in the collection made by Gautham Vasudev Menon otherwise known as GVM. The excellent connection between a fabulous little girl and granddad (Played by MS Bhaskar and Ritu Varma) caught by means of PC Sreeram's straightforward focal points could without much of a stretch be the top choice for some in the compilation. In the given 30, minutes, GVM takes the initial couple of moments to pass data, to the crowd, about the relationship of the characters. Rather than his standard voice-over method, GVM utilizes WhatsApp and calls to establish the pace for this film. Obviously, MS Bhaskar has aced the function of an elderly person living alone drenched in the realm of science. Govind Vasantha's smooth score and GVM's sincere screen making couldn't be smarter to fill the need with the story. It has been a long while since GVM fans have seen something like this from the movie producer.
Coffee, Anyone? - Suhasini Maniratnam
Directed by Suhasini Maniratnam Coffee, Anyone? is presumably the one that will bring the most tears. If you have descended perusing who the maker is, do I at any point need to clarify how relatable the universe is? We meet two sisters rejoining after years to meet their mom who is in a state of insensibility and numerous things are uncovered. Shruti Haasan, who gives an appearance intrigues in a brief timeframe. The second time she shows up, she gives a blending speech and furthermore sings before its finish, you avoid a beat. I am too guileless to even consider judging Kathadi Ramamurthy; the man claims his art. Yet, while on that, Putham Pudhu Kaalai's Coffee, Anyone? Is an excessive number of things in a short. This prompts our center moving from one clash to other people. A crisper methodology may have done marvels.
Reunion - Rajiv Menon
Set in a fancy architect dwelling place of a third-age doctor living with his bereaved mother, Rajiv Menon's Reunion centers around how a youngster's life changes when his overlooked school companion turns up at his doorstep and winds up remaining for an all-inclusive period. Throughout time, we discover that she is a medication head and starts her excursion to self-revelation. Staple and something we as a whole has seen, Reunion score a point for Andrea Jeremiah's, Leela Samson's and Sikkil Gurucharan's exhibitions.
Miracle - Karthik Subbaraj
For me, the best of the part is saved at the last with Karthik Subbaraj's Miracle bringing the genuinely necessary astonishment component. A strange heist comedy, the story is set inside the filmmaker's universe of vintage vehicles, frantic men, and a discouraged producer named Michael (a saucy reference) and another expansion, a Godman. Each short film sparkles in its splitting second, the last contort, and Karthik Subbaraj conveys the punch in his matchless style. The film goes past its impediments and furthermore investigates the monetary ramifications of lockdown, a hazy situation that was left immaculate by the other four stories.
Final Word - Putham Pudhu Kaalai which is all around cast with appropriate abilities, is an eccentric true to life try. Taken in general, Putham Pudhu Kaalai descends effectively enough and offers a couple of whimsical grins, however, you may end up wanting more significant sustenance before the end.
A Breezy Weekend Watch!
