5/11, 53rd Street, Ashok Nagar, Chennai - 600083
"5/11, 53rd Street, Ashok Nagar, Chennai-600083" is a series of three music videos based on the lives of a family that lived at that address during the COVID-19 pandemic. The music videos are based on the three different people living in the house, the mother, father, and son. Inimei (sweetness) is based on the epistemological study of the father's obsession with "Kadala mitaai". The lyrics are also based on the calls of desire to do something that he is not supposed to do. Azhagudaimei (beauty) is based on the ontological study of the mother's love for sarees. It is a documentary-style music video in which she talks to her son about her love for sarees and four different sarees which, are very important in her life. Thanimei (loneliness) is a song based on the loneliness that the son was facing during the lockdown. The song is an abstract music video based on the objects that accompanied him during the pandemic. The scapes of the three music videos are different sonically, visually, and in terms of film treatment as well. The attempt was to take a peek into the different worlds of the members of a family.
