Priyadarshan's Netflix film Sila Samayangalil, Aruvi have helped bring out the conversation around AIDS/HIV

Filmmaker Priyadarshan has assorted tastes. He has made some nice comedies in Malayalam and Hindi, and has additionally directed many common movies in his three-and-a-half-decade profession. His success ratio might be in comparison with Ram Gopal Varma. Although, their paths are completely different, their profession graphs look comparable.

Varma and Priyadarshan draw crisscross patterns with the tales they select to inform. Whereas Varma alternates between crime dramas and ghost thrillers often, Priyadarshan makes his films beneath two giant umbrellas: widespread and parallel cinemas.

This 12 months, two Priyadarshan movies have launched already. Nimir – the remake of the extremely profitable and revered Malayalam drama Maheshinte Prathikaaram – hit theatres in January; and Sila Samayangalil has simply popped up on Netflix.

Netflix is selecting area of interest movies for the aim of bypassing theatrical runs. The Indian content material on Netflix is a mixture of blockbusters and unbiased dramas. Yow will discover Shah Rukh Khan’s current movies on the streaming website together with titles like Nila and Radiopetti that many wouldn’t have even heard of.

Sila Samayangalil falls into the parallel cinema class. This type of cinema is just not celebratory – there are not any choreographed songs, motion sequences that put Marvel’s Avengers to disgrace, or punch dialogues that may make the frontbenchers cheer. The feelings are displayed in life like phrases right here.

Prakash Raj, who is mostly loud as a villain in Tamil movies, tones down his eye actions to make us perceive his state of dilemma in Sila Samayangalil. He’s joined by an ensemble forged – Sriya Reddy, Nassar, Ashok Selvan, Varun, MS Bhaskar, Shanmugarajan, Anjali Rao and Pandian. You’ll be able to rely all of them as principal actors since they’ve strains to seize your consideration and tragic tales to relate.

Sriya and Prakash have beforehand collaborated with Priyadarshan on the Nationwide Award-winning Kanchivaram. This newest movie, too, is batting for awards as its central theme revolves across the stigma that HIV/AIDS brings with it. Sila Samayangalil has extensively accomplished the movie pageant run. It has received a few awards as effectively.

Are films the precise platforms to disseminate social messages? Effectively, that’s debatable. However movies have all the time influenced the workings of the society and that may proceed to occur so long as the leisure trade dazzles us. Not too long ago, at a query and reply session, director Koratala Siva stated that his buddies helped arrange WiFi facilities and the like in some villages after watching his movie Srimanthudu.

In Srimanthudu, Mahesh’s character, Harsha, adopts a village to offer the villagers with primary requirements. In actual life, the actor adopted his father’s birth-town Burripalem.

Do you see how movies and the society are inter-connected? They go hand-in-hand.

Now, coming again to Sila Samayangalil, I want the film had been named Sila Samayangalil Sila Manidhargal (Typically, Some Folks) as that’s what it’s primarily about.

Krishnamurthy (Prakash Raj) cheats on his spouse in a drunken stupor; Bala Murugan (Ashok Selvan) is afraid that he may need HIV since his ex is claimed to have died of the identical trigger. Likewise, the characters performed by MS Bhaskar, Varun, Anjali Rao and Pandian, have their very own accounts of distress to share. The movie is usually shot within the foyer of a hospital the place seven individuals are made to attend for his or her HIV-test outcomes. The suffocating atmosphere the characters are positioned in is a sign of their dreadful moods. 

You’ll be able to see Krishnamurthy clutching a figurine of Lord Krishna and Sheila George (Anjali Rao) together with her prayer beads. All of them are praying and whispering to their favourite gods. Their faces are tensed and uninteresting. They’d give an arm, a leg and even cash to not be there. 

Few early scenes present us how ACP Karunakaran (Shanmugarajan) feigns ignorance when he’s recognised by Raghavan (MS Bhaskar). Nonetheless, when he introduces himself later, it’s clear that he doesn’t concern anyone anymore.

The journey from “Don’t have a look at me,” to “Take heed to me, I’ve received one thing to say to you,” is fascinating within the film. Once they lastly loosen up and reveal their secrets and techniques in a gaggle dialogue, you may sense the emotional weight leaving their our bodies.

Simply a few months in the past, Arun Prabu Purushothaman’s debut characteristic, Aruvi, which offers with the identical theme launched in theatres. The film, which is at the moment streaming on Netflix’s rival website, Amazon Prime Video India, talks in regards to the lifetime of a free-spirited girl who’s ostracised by her household for getting contaminated by HIV.   

If Sila Samayangalil is stuffed with anxious faces, Aruvi has an angry-faced protagonist (Aditi Balan). In a manner, Aruvi might be known as as a sequel to Sila Samayangalil. Give it some thought for a second. The leads are getting examined within the Netflix film whereas in Aruvi, the lead has AIDS. After all, nothing else in regards to the two films provides up. However each of them unfold consciousness about AIDS in their very own methods.
