9 Stories, 9 Emotions and one incredible journey. The anthology seems to pack not just nine different emotions but also all kinds of popular genres.

Navarasa will start streaming on Netflix on August 6. Several leading composers including AR Rahman, D Imman, Ghibran and top cinematographers such as Santosh Sivan, Balasubramaniem, Manoj Paramahamsa among others are all part of this pro-bono project.
