Leading directors in Tamil Cinemas awe-struck by the way story of the movie has unfolded. A Psychological thriller script with a novel screenplay is what new to Tamil cinema probably to Indian cinema as well.

Check out: Brief Look at #D16 – Dhuruvangal Pathinaru
Prior to D16, a look at Karthik Naren work:
Karthik Naren rose to fame with the trending psychological thriller movie Dhuruvangal Pathinaru, before the film he has done a couple of short films which have also got great appreciations from an online audience. A team of youngsters played different roles in his multiple short films. Most of his short film starts with an Anonymous quote. That seems to be his trademark and its adding more value to this work.
Pradhi – A Karthik Naren short film:
To mention about one specific short film titled “Pradhi”, which is quite an interesting film where he seemed to have followed the same novel style storytelling. This is definitely a new standard in short filmmaking and the feature filmmaking which scored neat acclaims from the theatre audience. As like the feature film, the debut director Karthik delivers perfection on things that are happening naturally in the short film story. The conversations between two brothers, with the manager, the person who he is interviewing are very natural and witty at times.
Scene projections in several places bringing the tense feel without fail. Camera work done very neatly and along with background screen confuses whether we are watching a short film or feature film. The protagonist with a health issue works in a media company. He was about to interview a high-profile officer as his nature of work is interviewing. Records the interview on his camera only for his reference and not to be telecasted anywhere.
Just in a flash of moments, one goes for refreshment the high profile officer found dead by a masked person. Policemen arrive to investigate the murder and the conversation between them is quite thrilling and creating a suspense in the audience mind who could be that evil person. The interviewer found the unexpected crime and fell to go unconscious. Police first investigation suspect the interview to be the killer and he might have set up the scene with his camera and stuff to escape. What happens next, who is the killer and what made them to do this and the way things get unfolded are again proving Karthik Naren is born a skilful director with this mettle of films in short time.
We hope and wish the director and his team to make a more scintillating script and take Tamil cinema to greater heights.
