Putham Pudhu Kaalai Trailer: The Anthology film is set in 21-day lockdown
The directors of the anthology of five short films include prominent filmmakers Sudha Kongara, Gautham Vasudev Menon, Suhasini Mani Ratnam, Rajiv Menon and Karthik Subbaraj.
The trailer of Putham Pudhu Kaalai, an anthology of five Tamil short films, released on Monday. The anthology, an Amazon original movie, will stream on Amazon Prime Video on October 16. The directors onboard include Sudha Kongara, Gautham Vasudev Menon, Suhasini Mani Ratnam, Rajiv Menon and Karthik Subbaraj.
The trailer shows glimpses from all five films and begins with an announcement that PM Modi has declared a lockdown for 21 days. The anthology appears to be on how the different characters in the stories respond to the lockdown.
Ilamai Idho Idho, directed by Sudha Kongara, has Jayaram, Kalidas Jayaram, Urvashi and Kalyani Priyadarshan in the cast. While Jayaram and Urvashi’s characters appear a bit worried about having to stay home for 21 days, the younger couple seems delighted.
In Avanum Naanum/Avalum Naanum, directed by Gautham Vasudev Menon, a granddaughter (Ritu Varma) ends up staying with her grandfather (MS Bhaskar) whom she does not know all that well during the lockdown.
Suhasini Maniratnam’s Coffee, Anyone? has Anu Hasan and Shruti Haasan apart from herself in the cast. The story appears to revolve around the 75th birthday of a patient in an ICU.
Reunion, directed by Rajiv Menon, has Andrea playing a young woman whose bike breaks down and she ends up staying with a man (Sikkhil Gurucharan). Her character appears to be on drugs. Leela Samson is also part of the cast.
Not surprisingly, Karthik Subbaraj’s Miracle appears to be a thriller with some supernatural elements, with Bobby Simha and Muthu Kumar in the lead.
In an earlier press release, Amazon Prime Video had said that Putham Pudhu Kaalai was shot in compliance with the rules and regulations set by the Film Employees’ Federation of South India (FEFSI) for filming during the ‘Unlock’ phase.
