Anurag Kashyap shared a more detailed note in which he called ‘Natchathiram Nagargiradhu’ his most favorite Ranjith film. His post reads,
Saw #natchathiramnagargiradhu last night. The uncensored version . This is a film playing inside Pa Ranjith’s head . There is an order in his chaotic mind . Where so many of his identities are having conversations and conflicting with each other . They just want to be and in order to be, they have to assert themselves and hold on to their grounds . It’s a film about love and how it needs to survive above all prejudice and hatred . Rene in the film imbibes the spirit of Pa Ranjith . This is His most personal work and my favourite Pa Ranjith film. He is his most vulnerable and naked in this film . Special mention for all the wonderful actors and the music and the cinematographer and the editor and the whole crew.
