By a slim margin, Crow’s Egg (Kaaka Muttai) was declared the People’s Choice winner of the 2015 Silk Screen Film Festival. Crow’s Egg was a lovely film about two boys in the slums of Chennai searching for a bite of pizza. Big Crow’s Egg and Little Crow’s Egg (Or Chinna Kaakaa Muttai and Periya Kaaka Muttai in Tamil) find themselves in the middle of wild shenanigans and hilarity as they look for that elusive pizza, but the narrative was more profound than what first appeared on the surface, something the audience clearly recognized by showing their love for this film.
Once the boys realize their goal, they are struck by the full reality of their situation. The two young leads gave endearing performances and the story surely stuck with Silk Screen fetivalgoers this year. Congratulations to director M. Manikandan and the entire cast and crew of the film!
