Puzhu is an interesting film made by Charukesh Sekar. It begins with two injured men, lying at the bottom of a secluded hillside. Both the characters, Sarath and Rajendran, struggle to stay alive in this part of the short movie, but ironically, they have an intense desire to kill each other, which in turn keeps them alive. The facial expression of Rishinanth and his body language was the highlight of his acting.
He received recognition for this role which gave him an opportunity to showcase his talent. His performance was appreciated even by
Vijay Sethupathi. The movie starts from a random location with a scene and after which the film takes us through a conversation that connects us with the story of the movie.
The film was a new initiative, and hence the project required many new faces. It was a remarkable collection of few short stories that had its creativity and aspiring star cast taking the film to a new level. The film was a combination of six short films for a single screening in a movie theater.
The film released on March 7, and it was a new initiative by
Karthik Subbaraj. It is sad that our film industry does not acknowledge the efforts of new talent, which was the case with this film. For some actors, they may not be blessed with a glittering career and get a dozen of films.
It all depends on luck and how they manage to market themselves on social media. Somewhere in between, however, there can be some actor who become the one-hit wonders. But there are also some actors who might have scored one classic film or one iconic character and get back to the place from where they came. Rishi Nath and Sarath were two powerful actors who can perform in any role. Hope luck smiles upon their career too!
