Netflix today unveiled the teaser for its upcoming Tamil anthology Navarasa, which features nine stories from nine filmmakers. The teaser gives a glimpse of the nine emotions the stories will explore.

The Navarasa anthology of short films was conceived by directors Mani Ratnam and Jayendra Panchapakesan (co-founder, Qube Cinema) as an initiative to raise funds to support those in the cinema industry who were acutely affected by the COVID-19 crisis.

The teaser is a series of shots of artistes expressing each of the rasas. It introduces all the artistes in the anthology.

The nine filmmakers who are part of this project are Priyadarshan, Gautham Vasudev Menon, Bejoy Nambiar, Karthik Subbaraj, Sarjun, Vasanth, Karthick Naren, Rathindran Prasad and Arvind Swami.

Navarasa marks the reunion of Suriya and filmmaker Gautham Menon after a decade for the short titled Guitar Kambi Mele Nindru.

While the Bejoy Nambiar-directed short is titled Ethiri and stars Vijay Sethupathi, Yogi Babu stars in Summer Of 92, a short directed by veteran filmmaker Priyadarshan and said to be based on a true story.

Karthick Naren’s short, a sci-fi drama, is titled Project Agni and stars Arvind Swami and Prasanna.

Atharvaa Murali stars in the short titled Thunintha Pin, which has been directed by Sarjun.

Arvind Swami makes his directorial debut with a short titled Rowthiram, which stars Rythvika in the role of a police officer.

In Rathindran Prasad's short Inmai, Siddharth and Parvathy join hands for the first time.

Karthik Subbaraj’s Peace is reportedly based on the erstwhile LTTE, or the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam, and stars Bobby Simhaa and Gautham Menon.

Vasanth's short Payasam stars Delhi Ganesh and Rohini.
