7 Movies Based on Letters

Letter-writing might be a lost art. But once upon a time before the era of telegraphs, phones and e-mails, hand-written letters were how people stayed in touch. There was a lot of monogrammed stationary, scented inks and even real scents involved when it came to expressing love through the medium of letters. Over time, letters were replaced by phones, and recently e-mails and texts. But there are still a few who believe that letters are still the best form of expressing your thoughts. On World Post Day, we have compiled a list of movies, those that believed letters are the ultimate tool for romance.

Audiences Hail Karnan As A Masterpiece In Tamil Cinema

It’s finally here! ‘Karnan‘ starring Dhanush and directed by Mari Selvaraj has hit the theatres today. Touted to be one of biggest social dramas of the year, the film has been gaining much hype with its poster releases, music videos and the powerful trailer. Karnan also stars Malayalam actor Rajisha Vijaya who makes her Tamil debut with this film, alongside other actors such as Lakshmipriya Chandramouli, Gouri Kishen, Lal, and Yogi Babu in important roles. The cinematography has been handled by Theni Easwaran. Mari Selvaraj gained huge prominence for his grating caste drama ‘Pariyerum Perumal‘ which stunned audiences and critics for its open narration of the horror of the caste divide in society. This time around, the director once again sets the story in the rural milieu with Dhanush playing the titular role and a saviour-like figure of the masses. The audiences have spoken and the reviews are nothing short of stupendous.
