The Anthology Review:

The idea of Navarasa was to give people a spark about feelings and their kinds as discussed by the industry. It’s a piece of appealing news to hear that Netflix has come forward to take this confluence of emotions, talent, people, and the cause of the world.

Anthology, at a glance:

One of nine stories helmed by Gautham Vasudev Menon. In this short film, Suriya is playing the role of a musician. The title defines it nicely, Guitar Kambi Melae Nindru. Netflix has been a mixed bag of anthologies. Previously, it streamed  Ray, a four-storied anthology based on the short stories of Satyajit ray. It has also streamed Paava Kadhaigal; in Telugu, Pitta Kathalu; and Hindi. Some Lust Stories, Ajeeb Dastaans, and Zindagi In Shorts.

The general criticism among the anthologies is they seem patchy. Different directors and different treatments can lead to unevenness in the smooth running of the set.

Navarasa Trailer:

After Jagame Thantiram, the biggest Tamil streamer on Netflix is going to be Navarasa. It was announced last year. It is going to release on August 6. It was originally announced to stream during May, but pandemic paid to those plans.
