In the late eighties, K Balachander had tried making real different Tamil films. Oru Veedu Iru Vaasal was one such and in which he told two different stories in a single movie. Now director Adoor Gopalakrishnan is trying the same thing but he tells four different stories in single movie, that too with in 2 hours 30 minutes.
Naalu Pennungal is surely different from other Adoor films with four different stories, each distinct from the other with no apparent attempt to link them together. But there is an underlying link. All the four stories (penned by the late Thakazhi Sivasankara Pillai) speak about feministic concerns. Moreover all the four stories have narrated well by the director.
