And what if these emotions starred in their own films?

Armed with this idea the classical theory and film stills a team of hoardings artists from Chennai’s vibrant Kollywood movie industry have created monumental paintings expressing each of the nine emotions in their own inimitable style. Taking is some of Tamil Cinema’s classically dramatic moments this is an emotional rollercoaster cum ghost train and a headlong flight into the Kollywood imagination.

You don’t have to know the actors or the films to be drawn into this bizarre and enchanting world. For the initiated and the curious illuminating essays explore this fascinating intersection of culture commerce and politics.

Thank you very much for the Shri Yantra with Navaratna which has arrived here safely. I noticed that you seem to have had some difficulty in posting it so thank you...Posting anything these days is difficult because the ordinary postal services are either closed or functioning weakly.   I wish the best to Exotic India which is an excellent company...
