On that note, director Rathna Kumar of Meyaadha Maan and Aadai fame (also the screenplay writer of Thalapathy Vijay’s Master) has a strong recommendation of a movie to watch, during this isolation period. He took to his Twitter space to share that people should watch the Hollywood film, Contagion, which deals with the spread of a deadly virus among the people and how it instills a huge fear in people, during the pandemic. With the current outbreak of Corona, many people would find the film very relevant and also tend to connect with the moments in the film.


Contagion, which was released in 2011, is directed by Steven Soderbergh. The film has got its popularity now and people have been watching this film on Prime Video. Rathna Kumar was also sure that Contagion would turn out to be the most watched film during this Corona virus pandemic, provided if there are multi-language options to cater the worldwide audience.
