Do you even Thaipusam?
This is a mock-u-mentary featuring Velmuruganzz whose character is based on the negatively stereotyped young Thaipusam goer. We glorified the condemned elements as he brings us around to witness the celebration first hand a la Velmuruganzz.
This short film has a creative story-line and some good acting. The hand-held shaky camera style further adds a lot of character to it. The message is clear, though I am afraid there might be a group of people who actually take it seriously and not realise it is a satirical piece. Seems to happen often these days.

Charles Nilbert Philip Roberts, who plays one of the characters in the film is definitely someone to look out for in the local scene. I remember him from Hamlet, which was staged at klpac in 2016. You can read more about him on Trootz.com.
