Produced by Mani Ratnam and Jayendra Panchapakshan, Navarasa is a web anthology series based on the concept of Navarasas
The first song from the highly-anticipated Navarasa has dropped. The song is part of Suriya’s segment in the movie which will see him reunite with director Govind Vasudev Menon after a gap. The song from the segment titled Guitara Kambi Mele Nindru, will be the segment of love and also has Prayaga Martin.
The song named Thoorika has been composed and sung by Karthik. The much-awaited Karthik-Suriya-GVM combo has produced yet another soothing number. The songs from their previous collaboration Vaaranam Aayiram are still fan favourites.
Navarasa will have nine segments, directed by nine directors. Priyadarshan, Bejoy Nambiar, Karthik Subbaraj, Karthik Naren, Rathindran Prasad, Sarjun, Govind Vasudev Menon, Vasanth and Aravind Swami helm the different segments in the anthology, which will release on Netflix on August 9. This will also mark the directorial debut of Aravind Swami.
The Netflix original will see nine episodes, each based on the nine emotions - anger, courage, compassion, fear, laughter, love, wonder, peace and disgust. The series is said to have a total runtime of around 4 hours and 30 minutes.
The movie will feature songs composed by AR Rahman, Imman, Ghibran, Karthik, Govind Vasantha, Justin Prabhakaran, Aruldev and Ron Ethan.
The anthology released under the banner of Madras Talkies and Qube Cinema Technologies has all its artists, technicians and directors work without remuneration. All the profit from the movie will be donated to the members of the Film Employees Federation of South India, who were affected by the pandemic.
