‘Navarasa’, a nine-film anthology jointly produced by Mani Ratnam and Jayendra Panchapakesan was released today on Netflix. This is an amalgamation of nine short films based on nine ‘rasas’ or human emotions – anger, compassion, courage, disgust, fear, laughter, love, peace and wonder.
The analogy has received appreciation from Netizens on social media but a section of people seems angry due to use of the Quranic verse in the aforementioned advertisement.
