Actor-Director-Producer Radhakrishnan Parthiban‘s Oththa Seruppu Size 7 was 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 Parthiban. The film is also being screened for the Academy Awards’ jury members today in California.
“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. 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,” said Parthiban and added, “I am happy that Metroplex Tamil Sangam at Dallas City, Texas Province has recognised my work and is honouring me with a special screening, interaction, and dinner at 4 pm on October 26 (Saturday). I am really excited to meet the folks out there.”
The film first premiered at the Singapore South Asian International Film Festival before hitting theatres and has now been selected under the Indian Panorama section for the International Film Festival of India set to happen between 20-28 November 2019 at Goa.
