A rivetting reflection of a society that chooses to suffer its fallacies
19 December 2020 | by rrprasannakumarSee all my reviews

It's been a while since I have seen something as riveting as this from the Tamil movie industry, it takes a lot of heart to make such movies to compensate for all the ills the rest of us choose to ignore just because they are uncomfortable truths, truths that don't fit into the scheme of things that was labelled for us by the past to believe in, as our culture, as our tradition and our way of life. Life is all about the future that you may or may not experience. Every breath you take , every effort that you put in is with the hope that an experience that you have always been seeking awaits you in the end, and that experience would be meaningless if your efforts are burdened with the faults of the past, coming face to face with efforts such as these, efforts that seek your attention towards the present human condition is what will help you experience the future in the way a thinking human being with a lot of heart is meant to.. i appreciate the effort that has gone into making these 4 shorts ...
