Netflix’s first ever Tamil project - Paava Kadhaigal is scheduled to release this Friday, 18th of December. This is an anthology film consisting of four short stories directed by four talented filmmakers - Gautham Vasudev Menon, Vetri Maaran, Sudha Kongara and Vignesh Shivan. All the four short films will explore how love, pride and honour influence complex human relationships through four intricate and beautiful stories. Ahead of the film’s release, Netflix has been releasing the teaser of each short film on each day and we had witnessed the teaser of Gautham Vasudev Menon’s directorial, Vaanmagal yesterday (Dec 15). Following that, the streaming giant has now released the teaser of acclaimed director Vetri Maaran’s short which is called Oor Iravu (One Night).

Vetri Maaran’s portion features Prakash Raj, Sai Pallavi and Madras fame Hari in the lead roles. All three of them are naturally strong performers and when a filmmaker like Vetri Maaran is at the helm, you can be rest assured that the performances will be highly impactful. The teaser of Oor Iravu gives us a glimpse of the story that deals with the relationship between a father and her pregnant daughter. From what we see in the teaser, it looks like Sai Pallavi is cheated by her father (Prakash Raj) in the name of love and affection since she married someone else against his decision. The film is expected to be highly intense and gut-wrenching and the teaser is also suggestive of that. The teaser has opened to a positive response from the fans.

Speaking about the film, director Vetri Maaran said, "While it is essentially a story about a father and daughter, the concept of the film kept evolving along the way. My subconscious thought was to have a microscopic view on the pain that is inflicted by family members on one another for the sake of honor. Oor Iravu will make people think about certain practices that sadly still continue to exist in our society. It is both heart-touching and wrenching at the same time.”

Paava Kadhaigal is produced by Ronnie Screwvala’s RSVP Movies and Ashi Dua’s Sara’s Flying Unicorn Entertainment. The film will open to 190 countries on December 18 and it is expected to leave a strong impact on the viewers.
