The much-awaited trailer of Netflix’s Tamil anthology drama Navarasa was released on Tuesday.
The footage, which is a shed less than 2 minutes, doesn’t reveal much in terms of plot. The trailer has been cut for the sole purpose of giving the audience the horrors of this anthology. Even the dialogues in the trailer have been chosen to outline the nine different emotions (navrasas) with which the anthology is ideal.
Navarasa (Netflix) will see collaborations between some of the most prominent directors, who have made nine short films based on nine ‘rasa’ (emotions). Bejoy Nambiar, Gautam Vasudev Menon, Karthik Subbaraj, Karthik Naren, K.V. Anand, Ponram, Rathindran Prasad and Halitha Shamim have directed the short films in this anthology. Also, actor Arvind Swami is making his directorial debut with a short film in the anthology.
Suriya sir is timeless and gets better every year,” says actor Prayaga Martin, who is paired opposite superstar in Gautham Vasudev Menon’s short title ‘Guitar Kambi Mele Nindru’ in the upcoming Netflix anthology ‘Navarsa’. The part, which will be a romantic musical, is one of the nine stories (shorts) showcasing each rasa (feelings).
Sharing her experience of working with Suriya she says, “Suriya sir is a superstar and he has been in the industry for so many years with an enviable filmography. He comes before me as an actor who is graceful. It was a huge responsibility for me to pair with him. I had to praise his performance. There was a lot to give and take.

Navarasa Web Series Story
The Navarasa Web Series explores the spirit of love in Navarsa. Martin says that with every character she portrays, there have been a few situations where she can relate to the situation, “It’s not like I’ve lived the life of the character that I am. I’m playing in Navarasa. |
But I have understood the pulse of it. I could relate to his feelings. Also, you should be aware of all the other characters around you, situations, backgrounds, and many other factors that contribute to the story. Only then can you get under your character’s skin
Martin says working on the film was a magical experience, “We all knew we were making something that was a mix of music and romance,
Which I think is a golden combination as everyone likes it. We were all comfortable during the shooting of the film. There was no pressure. The credit also goes to the team and Gautham sir who trains you without informing you that you are being trained.
From his debut film Pisasu to Ramleela and Geeta, the actor has been selective but has landed some interesting roles in a short span of time. Talking about her choice, she says, “I am ready to do different types of roles and I don’t like to limit myself.
