A Tamil anthology film, Amazon Prime Video's Putham Pudhu Kaalai, which loosely translates to 'A Brand New Dawn' is set in the COVID-19 21-day March lockdown in India. Directed by five different directors, it features stories of love, loss and life.
Before you watch the film, here is what Twitter has to say about the movie:
#PuthamPudhuKaalai- Completely satisfying and refreshing work which offers great positivity. ❤ For me the most happiest thing during this lockdown period. All 5 ends with a happy smile in our faces and that's what exactly the makers wanted to. #Brilliant— Martin N Joseph (@mnj993) October 16, 2020
#CoffeeAnyone - A middling feel! Couldn't completely write it off but at the same time couldn't feel it's good.. Kinda exhausted towards the end..— Karthick Shivaraman™ (@lSKARTHl) October 16, 2020
Surprisingly it was so unnatural from everyone, Though only connected with Kathadi Ramamurthy character..

One of the perfect releases of @PrimeVideoIN
5 films from 5 Different directors and @DirRajivMenon and @menongautham films were the perfect ❤️Just loved their way of story telling!!! The rest of them were also good but can't beat the above two !!
@karthiksubbaraj outshines others in #PuthamPudhuKaalai Miracle gives u the Nalaiya Iyakkunar vibe. Avarum Naanum was good. Though all stories are predictable and feels like we have seen similar short stories before, I Couldn’t connect with any story or characters. @PrimeVideo— Sajin M S (@ComradeSajin) October 16, 2020

Charming anthology which works as a soothing comfort mixing the sweet nd the bittersweet in right proportions,with solid narrative skills from directors and excellent casting.Esp loved Karthik Subbaraj's Miracle nd Sudha Kongara's Ilamai Idho Idho. pic.twitter.com/8OBqnWdoZY
Thoroughly enjoyed watching the @PrimeVideo Tamil anthology film, #PuthamPudhuKaalai... all the five sections are aptly rife with humanistic flaws and virtues... stay tuned to my detailed review@hasinimani @karthiksubbaraj @menongautham @DirRajivMenon @Sudhakongara_of pic.twitter.com/SLPZ6VhxJl— Murtaza Ali Khan 🇮🇳 (@MurtazaCritic) October 16, 2020
MS Bhaskar and @riturv's story in #PuthamPudhuKaalai Made me remind Something— Ｓᵃᴋᴛʜɪ ᵀᵉᵃᵐ ᴹⁱ (@NameisSakthi_) October 16, 2020

Wow #PuthamPudhuKaalai was so vanilla and blah :/ Everything felt so predictable and fake-ish— rabhinder kannan (@rabhinderkannan) October 16, 2020
(The Subbaraj movie being the one exception)
#Ilamaiidhoidho - The 60s person finding their love..— Karthick Shivaraman™ (@lSKARTHl) October 16, 2020
Jayaram & Oorvashi looked good.. @kalyanipriyan looked aww on screen😍 & Kalidas Jayaram is neat.. few comedies of Jayaram worked..
Overall, It's neat & good but lacks the Emotional connect/Impact..#PuthamPudhuKaalai pic.twitter.com/IYQcM3AEDC
