Over the years, it has become a fashion to release teasers and trailers commemorating the actors’ or director’s birthday. The team of Nanpakal Nerathu Mayakkam has taken this trend to the next level and have released the teaser today celebrating World Sleep Day.
Interestingly, true to its title, it looks like the story of sleep. It is a quirky teaser with no dialogues or movements but speaks for itself. The only things that move are clouds and wind. All you can hear, apart from the background score, are loud noises of people breathing and snoring.
Around mid-morning, in bright daylight, a whole village is sleeping. And those who are not sleeping, a baby and a few birds and animals, are feeling drowsy and find it hard to keep their eyes open, beginning to fall asleep. The teaser looks quite unusual and creates a sense of curiosity.
You can watch the teaser here:
