The official trailer of Paava Kadhaigal, the upcoming Tamil anthology film to premiere on Netflix, was released on December 3. The two-minute trailer gives us a glimpse from all four short films that will be a part of the anthology. Paava Kadhaigal has Gautham Menon, Sudha Kongara, Vetri Maaran and Vignesh Shivan helming four different stories. The four stories, by four different directors, is based on four different themes -- Honour, love, sin and pride.

The trailer was shared by Netflix India ahead of the film's release on December 18. “Honour. Love. Sin. Pride. 4 stories, 1 rollercoaster of emotions,” reads the tweet.

In the other, director Gautham Menon plays a grandfather, sharing a happy moment with his granddaughter. In another, there’s actor Anjali and Kalki Kochelin playing lovers, coming out to the former’s conservative family.
