Direction : Pradeep Krishnamoorthi
Production : Naathambal Film Factory
Starring : Sibiraj, Varalaxmi Sarathkumar, Remya Nambeesan, Aathma
Music : Simon K.King
Cinematography : Arunmani Palani
Editing : Goutham Ravichandran

Following decent run of Naaigal Jaakirathai and Jackson Durai, Sibiraj is here with ‘Sathya’, directed by Pradeep Krishnamoorthy. The film has an ensemble star-cast involving Remya Nambeesan, Varalaxmi Sarathkumar, Anand Raj, Yogi Babu and Satish in important roles.


Sibiraj gets a phone call from his ex-girlfriend Swetha (Remya Nambeesan), who is in a deplorable situation of having lost her daughter to kidnappers. On his arrival, he gets furthermore shocked to see the evidences that Swetha and her husband Gautham never had a child and that Swetha is under a hysterical trauma of imagining certain things after recovering from coma.


There is something special about the film ‘Sathya’. As everyone knows, the film happens to be a remake of super hit Telugu movie ‘Kshanam’. Even if someone has already watched the original version, this remake offers a fresh experience. Thanks to Pradeep for including certain modifications to the screenplay. Since, the screenplay is adapted from the original version; it keeps up the momentum without dropping anywhere. Thanks to director for not ruining the show with unwanted commercial aspects. On the other end, the second half gets crisp and winds up the right time. The twists and turns offered during the screenplay are worthy enough of appreciations. Background score by Simon K King bestows the script with more intensified emotions. Cinematography and editing have given their best support to the enhancement of screenplay.


This can be regarded as the best of Sibiraj till the date. Maybe, his previous films like Naaigal Jaakirathai and Jackson Durai could have worked out best results because of dogs and devils being a prominent character. But for the first time, Sibiraj completely banks his hopes on characterization and script. Varalaxmi Sarathkumar could have done yet more justice to her characterization. Remya Nambeesan is the best showstopper, who has emoted so well with her performance. She definitely deserves special mention for her extraordinary acting. Anand Raj adds up the best hilarious episodes amidst the serious situations. Yogi Babu and Satish are purposely included for the sake of humour, but the latter gets some extended role beyond humour to play. Others in the cast have done what is required for their roles.

What works?

1. Screenplay
2. Performance, especially Remya Nambeesan
3. Music

What doesn’t work?

1. Varalaxmi Sarathkumar not apt to the role
2. Logic missing in few places with loopholes

On the whole, Sathya gives lots of edge-seated moments with right kind of performances from the actors and decent technical spell.

Verdict : Raciness assured from beginning till end

Rating : 6/10
