Anantham Review: A Prakash Raj Starrer with a Medley of Emotions

Anantham is the brainchild of Priya V, who directed the Tamil web series using flashbacks and flashforwards, but keeps us riveted throughout. The series has eight episodes, each with a runtime of approximately an hour. The series brings together a varied cast of characters, many of whom are unique and refreshing.

Anantham is a heartwarming tale of accepting reality and family dynamics

The story of Anantham celebrates acceptance, friendship and love. It’s a reminder that this world would be a much better place if we could accept each other for who we are. The characters are so well written that you grow attached to them within minutes. You cheer on their victories and cry with their losses.

Told in eight parts, Anantham begins with an introduction to the house, which has witnessed some of the most beautiful and tragic stories in recent times. Priya V has been able to handle heavy topics without going overboard on sentimentality. It’s also commendable that she’s been able to do this without any male gaze or objectification of women.

Each story has its ups and downs, twists and turns. Some are more interesting and engaging than others. They are all worth watching at least once – especially if you enjoy watching different kinds of stories unfold on screen.

Beautiful and real sequences are woven into the narrative of Anantham

And it’s impossible not to fall in love with Anantham itself. The house is a character that lives on its own – it has many rooms, each telling its own story. It’s like a bouquet arranged together in a vase – all different shades of colours, shapes, sizes and smells – but they come together to form something beautiful.

The series is exceptionally well-acted and produced. The stories are told with a subtlety and grace rare in Indian cinema. They’re also quite poignant, as they deal with issues the commoner faces or the middle class.

The cinematography is simply breathtaking at times, primarily when it examines nature. Its images are full of metaphors and symbolism, such as the iconic scenes. The songs are good, too – reminiscent of old melodies and vintage poems.

Anantham is exploratory and doesn’t limit any juncture of the stories

The show displays some crucial aspects of life. One of them is its ability to explore various kinds of human relationships – friendship, love, family and even romance. It also explores various aspects of human behaviour – we see how people react to different situations, how they cope with grief and loss, how they fall in love, and how they deal with conflict between family members. So far, the episodes are impressive in terms of story-telling and acting performance too.

The series shows us how we can overcome such challenges by believing in ourselves and our dreams. It shows us how we need to embrace equality if we want India to progress as a country.

The result is that Anantham feels authentic, which makes it easier for you to relate to the characters on screen. There are no good guys or bad guys here – only flawed people trying to make sense of their lives the best way they know, making it feel real.

Stream it or Skip It?

Zee5’s Anantham is a TV series that is definitely worth your time. It managed to strike an emotional chord in me with two episodes itself. The title of the series, Anantham, means “home” or “abode”. This series depicts stories of people who live in a home called Anantham. It’s a place where these people stay together and help each other through life’s ups and downs.

Anantham is streaming on Zee5.

1 COMMENT

  1. we saw all episodes in telugu. The title as written in telugu (probably in many indian languages, since it is sanskrit actually) , means ‘ endless ‘ . Music is unobtrusive and merges with the nostalgia. Glad the tamil lyrics by the great Subramanya Bharathiar are retained , without awkward traslations Gripping without gymnastics !
