The film's central premise is about the incidents that take place in the first 21 days of the national lockdown that was announced by Prime Minister Narendra Modi during the third week of March 2020. We will be seeing how the lockdown made a difference to the lives of different people through these 5 short stories and the trailer looks highly promising. The packaging looks good. Karthik Subbaraj's portion is said to have been inspired by a real life theft incident that happened at Bobby Simha's office.

This anthology film was shot and completed during the Covid times with all precautionary measures in place. Amazon Prime has been finding it quite challenging to deliver quality regional content so far and let us hope that Putham Pudhu Kaalai makes the situation better.
