Director’s Biography :

Pa. Ranjith

Pa. Ranjith is an exciting prospect in the new age of Tamil film directors. His debut film was a cult romantic comedy film Attakathi. His next film was Madras (2014). The neat story-telling with no nonsense in logic and screenplay makes his movies more exciting. His next films were Kabali (2016) and later Kaala (2018) both starred the Superstar Rajinikanth. All of Pa. Ranjith's films have one element in common: They express the lives and culture of Dalit people and the oppression they face in contemporary society. Since he himself is from the Dalit community, his fans are claiming that his films have opened up a new facet of Tamil cinema.

Synopsis :

As a motley theatre troupe sets out to stage a play about love, the drama reaches new heights as attitudes around sexuality and castes begin to clash.
