After almost two years since it bagged all the laurels in the festival circuit, the much-acclaimed indie drama Koozhangal(Pebbles), directed by PS Vinothraj will make its digital debut on Sony LIV on October 27.
Presented by Nayanthara and Vignesh Shivan’s Rowdy Pictures, the film was India’s official entry to the Oscars 2022. Notably, it also won the prestigious Tiger Award, the top honour at the 50th edition of the International Film Festival Rotterdam in 2021.
The poignant film, featuring Chellapandi and Karuththadaiyaan in the lead roles, follows the journey of an alcoholic father Ganapathy and his son Velu who are on their way to bring back their wife-mother, who has left the home.
