Saithan has been released on Friday, 1 December. Vijay Antony has collaborated with newcomer Pradeep Krishnamoorthy, a former associate of National Award winning filmmaker Vetrimaaran. Arundhati Nair plays the female lead in the flick, which has Charuhasan, Meera Krishnan, YG Mahendra, Siddhartha Shankar, Kamal Krishna and others are in the cast.
The psychological thriller, which has been dubbed into Telugu as Bethaludu, has Pradeep Kalipurayath’s cinematography and Veera Senthil Raj’s editing. Vijay Antony himself has composed the music. But his songs are not up to the mark although his background score is top notch.
Vijay Antony is one actor from the current generation willing to explore new frontiers in commercial cinema. He has this knack of choosing scripts which are slightly off-beat, even though they’re not devoid of ‘masala’ elements. His latest film — Saithan, directed by debutant Pradeep Krishnamoorthy — has a spellbinding first half and moves like a psychological thriller, before turning into a mass hero film.
