The Tamil comedy play ‘Paatigazhum Palamozhium’ (meaning ‘old ladies and proverbs’) is adapted from a book of the same name by Shanmugam, with the jester part scripted by the legendary actor Nasser. The setting of the play is a "thinnai" (porch/verandah), a common feature in village houses where witty old ladies gather for everyday chit-chat on worldly matters. In an unconventional twist, male actors portray these old women characters. The play features five songs by the famous artist O. Mutthumaari, and includes engaging folk dances and songs, with a unique and humorous style that involves interaction with the audience.
