Merku Thodarchi Malai, Let's Watch Something Different This Deepavali!

  • 08 Nov 2018

While we are engulfed in a self-obsessed cocoon of joy and laughter this Deepavali, most of us will easily tend to forget or even bother to acknowledge the turmoil surrounding the planet that is literally wiping off the dreams and aspirations of certain minorities from being into existence.

Produced by Vijay Sethupathi, Meerku Thodarchi Malai is an honest attempt with unusual depth in writing that showcases the true plight of the oppressed labour class. 

The debutant director, Lenin Bharathi takes you to an intensely realistic world of the deprived working class through his realistic story-telling and the extraordinary cinematography of Theni Eswar.
Isaigani Illayaraja uplifts each scene with his soulful BGM. Now, this is one movie that you will NOT get to view in any other Channel except for Thangathirai this Deepavali as this is not your usual ‘Feel Good Movie’. 

This critically acclaimed movie has won the Accolades below: 

  • The film Premiered during the 21st International Film Festival of Kerala (IFFKK 2016)
  • The film Won Best Cinematography at the Bioscope Global Film Festival, Punjab
  • The film has been Nominated for 'Best Screenplay' Category in 17th New York Indian Film Festival (NYIFF2017)
  • The film has also been Selected at the Singapore South Asian International Film Festival and Chicago South Asian Film Festival
  • This film has been Invited to the 6th edition of Toulouse Indian Film Festival in France and also will be competing at the festival for both the Jury and Audience Prizes.

Meerku Thodarchi Malai Premieres on 9/11/2018 at 9pm on Astro Box Office Movies Thangathirai Ch 241:
