As part of Singapore South Asian International Film Festival, a documentary on eminent writer of Tamil/Indian English literary world – Ashokamithran.
As I couldn’t reach on time, I missed the first part. It was a neat portrait of the writer. It is good to know that it has been completed and screened for the writer, before he died.
It has given space for other writers to criticize him, which adds value to the movie. If you want me to point out, I may recall Prapanchan, Na Muthusamy. But I regret to hear Actress Rohini’s criticism – without grasping the content of the story. Surprisingly Actor Nassar scores well! I raised my eyebrows ^^!
The dissimulating discussions after the screening, are not noteworthy, as it cares very much for the Indian society and it vowed to write against current Indian issues. As per fluid theory, if there is a low pressure, it would be filled up. if not, nothing would happen!
By the time you hear the term Ashokamithran, something may come across your mind. For me, it is his way of expressing something, in a polite but mighty language. This stylish film tries to follow him in this aspect.
Hope the film would be made available for public viewing asap!
