Tamil film industry’s latest offer to the world of cinema is an innovative attempt at presenting two stories, on a split screen in a single movie. Beginning is the title of this Kollywood film, and it is touted to be Asia’s first split screen movie. 2012’s Good Night Good Morning is also an Indian film that attempted this split screen method, but Beginning is the first feature to inculcate the format throughout its runtime.
Written and directed by debutant Jagan Vijaya, Beginning stars Vinoth Kishan, whom the Tamil film audience recognize from movies like Nandha (2001), Naan Mahaan Alla (2010), Imaikaa Nodigal (2018) and the OTT audience from Andhagaaram (Netflix), Kutty Story (Amazon Prime Video). Also playing lead in Gouri G Kishan of 96 (2018), Master (2021), Karnan (2021) fame.
