Play • 1 hr 14 min

In this second episode of the Balaji Tharaneetharan series we discuss the recent direct to OTT release Oru Pakka Kathai. @gradwolf & @anantha are joined by special guests @equanimus & @milified to discuss:

- The fantastical nature of the topic and how it presents its social commentary

- What is the film trying to say about science, religion, and how both interact?

- What is the portrait it draws of the children in the film?

- Is the film pro-life? How do Balaji's films portray women?

- Female centric films in the male gaze

- Ranking the 3 films Balaji has made thus far

A huge thanks to our guests for joining us in this engaging discussion!
