The Affair – Tamil Short film Review – The Affair is a Tamil short film released in 2016. A 52-year-old man is having an affair with a girl half his age and his grown up children comes to know about it. How do they react is the plot of The Affair.
After Unakkae Uyiranen and Haiku Nee director Surrya Narayanan and the team has come up with yet another Tamil short film The Affair. The screenplay is very engaging right from the first frame. The length of the movie is just right to create the impact needed. The plot deals with something that is very intense in human emotions. The treatment of the screenplay keeps it simple and nonchalant which makes it a pleasure to watch.
The casting of the movie is perfect. Livingston and Anupama have performed very well. Anupama has performed so well and conveyed a lot without having to utter a dialog. The background score matches the mood and tempo of the movie well. The use of extreme close-up shots helps in maintaining the intense mood of the movie. Hardly you get to see the environment but for a few shots but still understand where these characters reside. It is done brilliantly.
High Points: The high point of the movie is the exchange of dialogues between the father and the daughter. For me, this shot sums up the plot well. Apart from this, the casting, screenplay, visuals, and background score have been done well.
Low Points: Not much low points to talk about 🙂
Overall The Affair is very soulful at its core and deals with human emotions in a nonchalant way. A tight screenplay and power packed performances make it a must watch. Watch it definitely when this releases for public view. Kudos to the team for pulling out such a soulful movie.
