Neetu Chandra all praise for Parthiepan

R Parthiepan’s recent outing Oththa Seruppu has been winning accolades from various quarters and the latest star to heap laurels on the movie is Neetu Chandra. When the film was screened for Academy members in LA, it was also attended by  Neetu Chandra, who took to Twitter to talk about the film.

“So happy to be at the Oscar screening for “single Slipper size 7” loved the craft of the entire film with actor/director #RParthiban & Academy award winning #ResulPookutty my friends @RohitMarble and #AnilMohin could not stop raving about it too! A must watch,” she wrote.

Oththa Seruppu Size 7 was recently screened for the Golden Globe jury at Los Angeles, California. The film that hit the screens on 20 September 2019 in India, was a experimental about a man being investigated by the police for murder.

It was helmed, headlined and bankrolled solely by Parthiepan. The film is also being screened for the Academy Awards’ jury members today in California. Says Parthiepan, “As I mentioned earlier, the entire process of Oththa Seruppu Size 7 has been a mix of emotions and challenges. The only thing that took me through the challenging process was the hope I had on the audiences. Now to see that the film is getting unconditional appreciation from across the globe, fills me with delight.”

He added: “The screening for jury members at the Golden Globe was like an acid test and I was emotional when they personally interacted with me after the screening. They mentioned that it’s a phenomenal attempt, which isn’t an easy thing to accomplish.”

The unique film had also got registered in Asian and Indian Book of Records, for the fact that Parthiepan himself had directed, produced and performed in it.  Lakshmi Ramakrishnan’s House Owner and Parthiban’s Oththa Seruppu Size 7 have officially been selected under the Indian Panorama section for the International Film Festival of India set to happen between 20-28 November 2019 at Goa. Both films have been doing well in the festival circuit.

IFFI 2019 tweeted: “We are proud to announce that #OthaSeruppuSize7 by @rparthiepan has bagged the Indian Panorama selections at #IFFI2019. @rparthiepan not only directed this movie but also acted & produced this film, which makes it the first India solo act in mainstream cinema since 1964.”
