In this episode, we are joined by Niranjana Ramesh, urban researcher working on the everyday life of cities at the London School of Economics & Political Science. Aditya, Niranjana and Ashoka discuss Nalan Kumarasamy’s sophomore feature Kadhalum Kadanthu Pogum. Though not as well received as his debut Soodhu Kavvum or as well remembered, this film tried to break a lot of stereotypes associated with Tamil romantic films. It centers the film from the point of view of the woman, Yazhini played by Madonna Sebastian, along with the ever reliable Makkal Selvan Vijay Sethupathi as Kathir. Listen on.
Listened to this a couple of week’s ago and forgot to ink my thoughts right after the episode. Enjoyed the discussion. Niranjana’s view gave a new perspective especially her interpretation on the movie title.
