"Ayynoorum Ayynthum (500&5)" - Independent Tamil Feature Film - Official Full HD Movie


1. ABOUT THE FILM - SYNOPSIS

“Ayynoorum Ayynthum (500&5)” is a Critically-Acclaimed, Independent Tamil feature film about the bizarre journey of a 500-Rupee note that travels through 5 different characters and how they perceive it in their own ways.

Sudalai(A Goon's stooge, superstitious Sudalai wants to become a Don. Will he realize his dream or will his misplaced sense of self get in the way of it?), Adi(Successful film-director Adi, who's separated from his wife thanks to his philandering ways, is desperate to redeem himself and get her back. Will he be able to?), Sundari(Spunky Sundari is in love and works at a phone recharge shop. All she wants is to safeguard the souvenir her boyfriend gives her. Will she hold on to it?), Jenny(Volatile, troubled Jenny lives in a world where she walks a fine line between psychedelic reality and nightmarish fantasy. Will she rise above it or get sucked into a self destructive vortex of darkness?) and the Nameless revolutionary(The Nameless, avant-garde revolutionary ignites an unprecedented rebellion with which he threatens to raze down the hyper-capitalistic juggernaut).

2. Official Non-Traditional Release of “Ayynoorum Ayynthum (500&5)”

“Ayynoorum Ayynthum (500&5)”, a Tamil feature film made for the BIG Screen in Cinema theaters has now been released unconventionally on the Internet on the Youtube Channel of ACCESSIBLE HORIZON FILMS on SUNDAY, MAY 1st, 2016. It's directly available on Laptops, Tablets and Smartphones from May 1st, 2016.

Before the release, we had one Special Public Screening at the Alliance Francaise, Madras on Friday, April 29th, 2016 at 7.00 p.m.

3. Why are we giving our film away for Free Online?

For the last 3 years, we have been trying to release our film conventionally in theaters in Tamil Nadu, searching for distributors and trying to find people who might take our film and release it in theaters. The difficulty of releasing a film conventionally without financial backing or influence is just unimaginable especially when the film doesn’t conform to the norms or the ‘formula’. We thought of going conventionally only to reach a wide audience, because the film is about money, which everyone can relate to. But we have been facing enormous obstacles while doing so.
The ‘System’ constantly keeps telling us that the Audience/society will not accept new formats. But needless to say, the audience is smart and has always been ready for new forms of artistic and cinematic engagement. They want change. But our ‘system’ does not want to give it to them. 10 people decide what 100 crore people want to see. Because if we want our films to become more progressive, we should be able to try unconventional things. And we want ‘people’ to watch it and give their verdict. What is given to the people widely in the name of cinema is being misunderstood as people’s taste. It is not so. Filmmakers should not have to compromise on the quality of the film that they want to bring to their audience. So we figured it was time.
And finally, at one point, we asked ourselves a question. Do we value Money or our Film? We could wait forever for our film to make money, hopefully reach the theaters and (still maybe) get a return on our investment OR we could just make our film available to the people, which is the basic reason we made the film. So, more than making money, our goal is to reach a wide audience, because that is the primary reason we made this film, not to gather dust in a dark room. Just like how there is no one way to make a film, there is no one way to reach the people. There have been so many films shelved every year. So this is OUR alternative way of reaching the maximum number of people because our making was alternative too.

That’s why we are giving our film away for free.

4. International film festivals

“Ayynoorum Ayynthum (500&5)” was part of the Official Selection at the Stuttgart Film Festival, Germany and part of the Top Angle Indian Cinema Section of the International Film Festival of Kerala, Trivandrum.
