Navarasa release time: Filmmaker Mani Ratnam has joined hands with director Jayendra Panchapakesan to create a nine-part anthology that not only boasts of an impressive cast and crew, but also a unique subject. Ratnam's fruit of labour will be out on OTT today for the world to see. The anthology has created a nationwide buzz, despite being a Tamil-language project, and viewers are now counting seconds till it is streaming time.

The nine-part anthology showcases nine rasas or emotions, each helmed by a different director. Not just that, each part of this magnum-opus project boasts of a separate music director and cinematographer as well.

Cast of Navarasa

The anthology boasts of an impressive cast, featuring both veteran and current favorites of the Tamil cinema. The cast for the anthology is led by Southern superstar Suriya, alongside actors Parvathy Thiruvothu, Geeta Kailasam, Prayaga Martin, Vijay Sethupathy, Siddharth, Remya Nambeesan, Aditi Balan, Anjali, Arvind Swami and Atharvaa. It also features stalwarts of the industry, such as Revathy, Prakash Raj and Delhi Ganesh.


The anthology will also mark directorial debut for Swami, who has helmed the the segment Roudhram, apart from featuring in Karthick Naren's segment Project Agni. Swami, however, isn't the only actor who has a dual association with the project.
