Mutham
Director:
Balaji
Mohan
Cast:
Gouri
G
Kishan,
Tejeenthan
Arunasalam,
Kallori
Vinoth
Muga
Kavasa
Mutham,
the
first
segment
of

Putham
Pudhu
Kaalai
Vidiyaadhaa
revolves
around
the
story
of
cops
who
handles
the
covid
safety
duty.
This
Balaji
Mohan
directorial
is
a
fun-filled
watch
at
most
of
its
parts,
with
some
light
moments
and
romance
between
the
lead
pair
Kuyili
and
Murugan,
played
by
Gouri
and
Tejeenthan.
However,
at
parts
the
film
loses
its
grip,
thus
failing
to
keep
the
viewers
engaged.
The
Loners
Director:
Halitha
Shameem
Cast:
Lijomol
Jose,
Arjun
Das
The
Loners,
directed
by
Halitha
Shameem
is
the
second
segment
of

Putham
Pudhu
Kaalai
Vidiyaadhaa.
The
shortfilm,
which
features
the
brilliant
Lijomol
Jose
and
an
equally
good
Arjun
Das
in
the
lead
roles,
is
simply
a
heartwarming
watch.
Director
Halitha
packs
in
a
film
that
travels
through
everything
that
made
the
second
wave
of
the
pandemic
distinct,
from
online
weddings
and
gatherings
to
the
demise
of
the
talents
we
admired.
The
honest
writing
and
exceptional
performances
make

The
Loners
highly
relatable. EXCLUSIVE:
Aishwarya
Lekshmi
On
Putham

“I
Love
The
Way
It
Is
Written”
Mouname

Director:
Madhumita
Cast:
Nadia
Moidu,
Joju
George
Mouname
Paarvaiyaal,
the
third
segment
of

Putham
Pudhu
Kaalai
Vidiyaadhaa,
which
is
directed
by
Madhumita
revolves
around
the
emotionally
estranged
couple
Murali
and
Yashoda.
This
shortfilm
focuses
on
the
inability
of
humans
to
convey
their
true
feelings
to
close
ones.
Nadia
and
Joju,
the
lead
pair,
and
their
distinctive
chemistry
make
this
Madhumita
directorial
an
enjoyable
watch.
The
clever
references
to
old
songs
(including
the
title
of
the
film
itself)
deserve
extra
brownie
points.
The
Mask
Director:
Suriya
Krishna
Cast:
Sananth,
Dileep
Subbarayan
The
Mask,
which
is
directed
by
debutant
Suriya
Krishna
is
one
short
film
of
the

Putham
Pudhu
Kaalai
Vidiyaadhaa
anthology
that
is
relevant
even
in
a
pandemic-free
world.
The
viewers
are
introduced
to
the
protagonist
(Sananth),
who
is
scared
to
inform
his
parents
about
his
love
interest.
The
mental
claustrophobia
faced
by
the
queer
community
is
narrated
effectively,
even
though
the
pandemic
setting
really
doesn’t
fit
in,
which
makes
the
narrative
look
forceful
at
parts. Putham
Pudhu
Kaalai
Vidiyaadhaa:
Jai
Bhim
Fame
Lijomol
Jose
Gears
Up
For
Her
Next!
Nizhal
Tharum
Idam
Director:
Richard
Anthony
Cast:
Aishwarya
Lekshmi
Nizhal
Tharum
Idam,
the
last
shortfilm
of
the

Putham
Pudhu
Kaalai
Vidiyaadhaa
anthology
is
helmed
by
Richard
Anthony.
The
central
character,
which
is
fantastically
played
by
Aishwarya
Lekshmi,
heads
back
to
her
home
in
Pondicherry
only
to
finally
let
out
the
emotional
baggage
that
she
was
carrying
over
the
years.
The
film,
which
focuses
on
letting
go
of
things
that
haunt
us
and
carrying
on
in
life,
is
neatly
made
and
moving.
Verdict
Putham
Pudhu
Kaalai
Vidiyaadhaa
brings
5
fresh
takes
on
the
pandemic
that
leave
us
with
mixed
feelings.
While
a
couple
of
short
films
are
well-made,
others
fail
to
create
an
impact.
But
this
anthology
is
worth
a
try.
