Putham Pudhu Kaalai Review: Sudha Kongara stars in an anthology that evokes mixed feelings

“It’s also fascinating to note that old people are integral parts of this new anthology. It’s a welcome development, is it not, that liberated from the rules surrounding feature films and star-centric cinema, these filmmakers are able to talk about an important section of society that’s damagingly stereotyped, even in the off-chance that they get depicted at all?”

Petta: A reasonably charming tribute film with some unforgettable flourishes

“Narai koodi kizha paruvam eidhi, kodum kootruk kiraiyenappin maayum, pala vedikkai manidharai pole naan veezhven endre ninaithayo?”, which roughly translates to, “Like those aging, with greying hair, who suffer the fate of death, did you think I, like contemptible people, will fall?” Petta is Karthik Subbaraj reminding us that the Superstar hasn’t fallen.
