Victim, which has an ensemble cast was released on SonyLIV on August 5. Let’s find out what the Janta thought of the series!
Victim-Who is next? Is an anthology of Tamil short films that talks about various different issues that our society faces today. There are four stories by four directors and four different conclusions that we get to watch. Starting with Dhammam directed by Pa. Ranjith, which mirrors the reality of the unending violence against Dalits in rural Tamil Nadu, the second one is Confession, directed by Venkat Prabhu which is a psychological thriller where a media professional finds herself at the end of a sniper by someone who wants to hold her accountable for the decisions that she has made.
Next comes Mirrage, directed by M. Rajesh, which is a story about how a girl who works for an IT company, comes to Chennai for a presentation and checks herself in an isolated guesthouse on the city’s outskirts. With jump scares and plot twists, it sort of looks like a horror movie but tries to give a much deeper message to the audience by the end of it. The last anthology is Kottai Pakku Vathalum Mottai Maadi Sitharum directed by Chimbudevan. The story revolves around a journalist who in order to save his job has to interview a sage who is 400 years old and returns to our world once in half a century. Since it was said that the sage will return amidst the pandemic, the journalist gets ready to interview him. Once he agrees to do it, the conversation between them reflects on the problems that Tamil Nadu is facing and also the pandemic.
Prassana, Amala Paul, Guru Somasundaram, and Thambi Ramaiah play leads in these short films amongst many others.
