Rajiv is the director of Reunion, one of the five short films. And it has been a reunion behind the camera too, for the directors Rajiv Menon and Gautham Menon. Gautham was Rajiv’s assistant once.
Gautham shared his feelings about the same and said that he hesitated at first to work in this Tamil anthology because he didn’t want his name to be mentioned alongside Rajiv who is his mentor. Gautham is the director of Avarum Naanum, another short film which focuses on a father-daughter relationship.
Another director Karthik Subbraj too went down memory lane while the work for Putham Pudhu Kaalai was going on. He has directed Miracle, the story based on true events. The short films Ilamai Idho Idho and Coffee, Anyone are directed by Sudha and Suhasini respectively.
