‘The Lost Paradise’ by Anil Krishnan
Director Anil Krishnan has narrated the feelings of a person who gets released from the jail after a long time. The director has tried to showcase the emotional feelings of the lead actor without using a single dialogue in the film.
Visuals’ showing the actor carrying his family photo as he travels to his hometown lacks depth and it seems as if the director missed out on something important. The acting of Somasundaram, who has done the lead role, is commendable but the movie doesn’t make a huge impact.
‘Agavizhi’ by Gopakumar
Anjan loves his colleague Sara. Anjan dreams of living with Sara in his dreams and when another guy joins the workplace he gets worried that whether the new guy might disturb his love life.
The story becomes predictable after a while and the realistic performances of Arvind and Nisha who have done the lead roles has added strength to the movie.
‘Puzhu’ by Sarukesh
The movie features the urge of two people to kill each other. The film portrays two men fighting for their lives in a mountain area. Both
of them have attacked each other and their urge to kill each other is the storyline of the movie. Director Sarukesh has made a sincere
effort to visualize the desire of the men to kill without revealing the reason behind the rivalry.
‘Nallathor Veenai’ by Monesh
Karthi is a 12th standard student who goes to coaching classes in the evening and he is sexually assaulted by his Tuition master. He is frightened to reveal his problem and doesn’t speak about this to anyone.
One day Karthi comes to know that another student is also being sexually abused by the master. The rest of the story narrates what Karthi decides and the movie’s director Monesh has conveyed
a strong message to the society.
‘Madhu’ by Rathnakumar
The story reveals the incidents that happen in a youngster’s life after he comes to know that his childhood 'one-side' love has failed. Sananth, who plays the lead role threatens his friends that he is going to commit suicide and he also disturbs the girl who is about to get married.
The way Sananth behaves and his hilarious activities are shot in a comical way and the movie is funny and entertaining.
‘Neer’ by Karthik Subbaraj
Karthik Subbaraj has made the film in 2011 based on the issues faced by the Tamil fishermen.
Vijay Sethupathi has played the lead role and the movie is a sincere effort to convey a strong message to the fishermen community.
Out of the six short films, ‘Neer’, ‘Madhu’ and ‘Nalladhor Veenai’ are quite interesting and the rest of the short films don’t create the expected impact. Karthik Subbaraj’s initiative to create a platform for promising talents is commendable and this effort has turned out to be fruitful.
