The Youtube movies of Santosh Sivan

Of his ten films, 6 of them seem to be available (from sources who seem to own some kind of cpyright to official copies) for watching online. I guess another two just haven’t found an official source for upload. (Sivan is copied on my group emails, so he can have these removed if he thinks online streaming of  any of these are in violation of copyright.

The idea is not to hurt the commercial prospects of these films. I’m sure Sivan would benefit from films like Anantabhadram and Navarasa being available for people to view online, on demand.

    These links are timely! Just this weekend, I started to create a Favorites list in my youtube (google) account with the available full length movies that I like to watch, just so I won’t have to put up with the painful search UI that TiVo puts you thru when looking for youtube videos to watch on TV screen (late realization!).

    From your list, I’ve only seen Ashoka, (parts of) Terrorist and Urumi. I’ve told you this before but I really liked Urumi (once I got past Prithviraj’s wooden-ness, that is). Genelia, who’s generally the wooden one, was pulsing with life…it was unbelievable. (Santosh Sivan seems like the only director who knows how to get the most out of Genelia. Most everyone else has her merely reprising her Aditi antics from JTYJN, which I re-watched on youtube/TV yesterday btw.) And “Before the Rains” reminds me of this conversation with my husband over the weekend when he brought back the DVD form the desi store. I thought you didn’t like these kinds of movies, I said. I brought it for you, he said. I was seriously touched. And suddenly I wasn’t so sure that I wanted to watch it at all in the first place, because I was perfectly happy to put it aside and instead watch the Chinese thriller Triple Tap, together.
