Darbuka Siva’s directorial debut ‘MUDHAL NEE MUDIVUM NEE’ to premiere on ZEE5 !
Mudhal Nee Mudivum Nee is a feel-good youth drama that revolves around the concept of filling oneself with hope and making peace with life. The story is narrated from the perspective of a bunch of high school kids growing up in the late 90s in Chennai, Tamil Nadu. The film holds a mirror to the mood of that era as much as it reflects the mind space of those teenagers. Then the story moves to a space where finding closures and purpose in life are the central themes.
It is worth mentioning that Mudhal Nee Mudivum Nee has won ‘Honourable Mention’ at the 'New York Movie Awards' and 'Best Director' at 'Art Film Awards', Macedonia. Besides, it has been an official selection at various festivals all over the world. Music is considered as a prominent crowd-puller that escalates the expectations over a film. Significantly, the soundtracks in this movie have already performed well.
