Nerkonda Paarvai (which translates to 'direct gaze') follows three young women, Meera (Shraddha Srinath, 'Vikram Vedha', 'Operation Alamelamma'), Fatima (Abhirami Venkatachalam) and Andrea (Andrea Tariang, 'Pink'), after Adhik (Arjun Chidambaram, 'America Mappillai, 'Rum'), the son of a powerful politician, attempts to sexually assault them following a night at a musical festival. When Meera raises a bottle against him in self-defense and almost takes his eye out as a result, the girls are taken to court for the "attack". Bharath Subramaniam (Ajith Kumar, 'Villain', 'Varalaaru', 'Mankatha') is a famous retired lawyer grappling with his past and mourning his wife. When Bharath hears about this controversial case, which will trigger discussions of consent in the courtroom, he sees it as an opportunity to process his past and he steps up to represent the girls. But Bharath struggles to maintain mental stability under the weight of depression and bipolar disorder and, as the court date draws closer, he must decide whether he can secure a victory for the women, or whether he should let them go. 'Nerkonda Paarvai' is written and directed by H. Vinoth ('Valimai', 'Theeran Adhigaaram Ondru', 'Sathuranga Vettai'). It also stars Vidya Balan and Rangaraj Pandey. Hide full plot... Show full plot
