Independent filmmaker Leena Manimekalai who is known for receiving awards and recognitions internationally for her films, documentaries, experimental poem films and fictions, expressed her disappointment over Netflix streaming platform for choosing a filmmaker like Vignesh Shivan to do one of the films for them in their recently released anthology “Paava kadhaigal”. She questioned Netflix why they are going blind when it comes to making films in India as they are capable of choosing skilled filmmakers such as Ava DuVernay and Spike lee to do films in United states of America.

Paava Kathaigal of Netflix consists four stories named Oor Iravu, Thangam, Vanmagal and Love Panna Uttranum written and directed by Vettri Maaran, Sudha Kongara, Gautham Vasudev Menon and Vignesh Shivan respectively. The four stories of “Paava Kadhaigal” are trying to expose the dark side of our society where people are obsessed with caste, pride and honour.

The film directed by Vignesh Shivan talks about the relationship between a caste obsessed father and his twin daughters. It shows the father killing his elder daughter with the help of his henchmen for involving in a romantic relationship with his driver. When the younger daughter arrives the village to tell his father about her love relationship, they (father and his henchmen) are trying to kill a guy who accompanied her as well.

However, the daughter, to save the guy from them, would lie to her father saying that she fell in love with her another friend who is a woman. “As you always restricted me to stay away from men, I got attracted to her and fell in love with her” Anjali who played the twins would state. Though it is lie according to the plot, the dialogue didn’t go well with Leena who once supported the Asia’s first Gender queer Pride Parade. She who is known for supporting the LGBT community, made a documentary in 2016 showing the troubles faced by two transgender women in finding a rental apartment in Chennai. The film titled “Is It too much to ask?” got screened in film festivals all over the world.

Now, pointing out the particular dialogue, Leena, through her tweet said “My dear greatest filmmakers of Tamil nadu, Women are not turning lesbians due to the restrictions they are facing.” and questioned why Netflix is going blind when it comes to making films in India.

“பசங்களோட பேசக்கூடாதுன்னு கட்டுப்படுத்தி வளர்க்கறதால யாரும் லெஸ்பியன் ஆகிறதில்ல தமிழகத்தின் மாபெரும் இயக்குநர்களே! PaavaKadhaigal பரிதாபக்கதைகள். ஏம்பா நெட்ஃபிளிக்ஸ்,உனக்கு அமெரிக்காவில மட்டும் அவா துவர்னே,ஸ்பைக் லீன்னு கண்ணு தெரியும்.இந்தியான்னா குருடாயிடுமா?” read the tweet of the filmmaker.

In her other tweet, Leena criticized the Gautham for playing a BGM when the parents in “Vanmagal” realise that their minor daughter was raped. She said that she almost puked on seeing that scene in the anthology film. “Atrocity Porn. Thats the best word to describe this so called ‘socially conscious’ voyeuristic crap. I lost it when Gautham Vasudev Menon plays a bgm song when the parents realise that their minor daughter was raped. I almost puked.” her tweet read.
