Paava Kadhaigal Movie Review

The victims here are kids, women and transgender. Yes, it’s obvious that a film made on the concept of picturing violence and misdeeds upon this cohort would obviously bring up an emotional stir. But our question is that what is a film made on these existing evils had a valuable ending. We do find it in the segment of ‘Vaan Magal’, where a mother going through upheavals goes through evil thoughts, but then confesses on a positive note. This earnest element goes missing in other stories. Say for instance, ‘Love Panna… Utranum’ is a decent stroke by Vignesh Shivan, but still, it doesn’t give a fulfilment as everything seems to be rushed and completed in a short span. A daughter is killed mercilessly and the other twin arrives and escapes in a short span of time. Yes, it’s a super-cool drama by Kalki Koechlin’s character, but still it’s a mediocre. Maybe, Netflix could have aligned this film at the last order so that humor could have been a takeaway at end. Prakash Raj’s Oor Iravu is so depressing and hard-hitting at the same time. The climax has an open ending with the note that the deceased woman’s husband is still waiting for justice. ‘Thangam’ is just yet another way to show sympathy to the transgender and there’s nothing special about it except for the outstanding performance of Kalidas Jayaram.

As abovementioned, it’s easy to stir emotions by placing a scene, where a little girl is brutally raped and the vengeance paid back would have win the applause.

The basic issue is that most of the filmmakers involved in this anthology said that theatrical viewing have some limitations, whereas, the OTT platforms offer them freedom to express their views and opinions. But still, there’s nothing as such found in ‘Paava Kadhaigal’. Maybe, it’s far-far better than the worst ‘Lust Stories’ made in Hindi by the same platform. With such mindset, we can say that Paava Kadhaigal is a step ahead of the Bollywood anthologies that are lacking contents, except for today’s release ‘Unpaused’.
