Sillu Karupatti is a 2019 Indian Tamil anthology romantic film written and directed by Halitha Shameem. The film stars Samuthirakani, Sunainaa, Manikandan K, Nivedhithaa Sathish, Kravmaga Sreeram, Leela Samson, Sara Arjun, and Rahul in the lead roles. Pradeep Kumar scored the songs and background score for the film.
The film was announced by director Halitha Shameem after rising to prominence in her debut film Poovarasam Peepee. The film is made with the genre of anthology consisting of four different stories. The film was scheduled to have its theatrical release in around 2018 but was postponed due to production delays.
“We like only a few things in each other, yet we believe we love a person whole-heartedly. That make-believe factor is love,” says a character in Sillu Karuppatti, Halitha Shameem’s wonderful anthology that gives us four stories – two each before and after the interval – across four age groups all connected by that magical thread called love. This particular line appears in the second episode – and the film’s best one, titled Kaaka Kadi, which is all about how this character, Madhu (Nivedhitha Sathish), who admits she doesn’t have a romantic bone ends up falling for Mukilan (Manikandan), a part-time meme creator, who has just discovered that he has testicular cancer. They meet as passengers ride-sharing a cab, and gradually open up to each other, discussing everything from love to pornography, and Madhu ends up giving the heartbroken Mukilan hope (literally) and heart (metaphorically)!
