- Acting by Cast
Sathya is crisp, racy and gripping with ample twists and runs only about 2 hours which is a big plus. Just go watch Sathya without any expectations and you will have a wonderful thriller to enjoy with your family!
This week two remakes have hit the screens – Sathya and Richie. Sathya is a remake of Kshanam, a nearly perfect Telugu movie.
Sathya features Sibiraj, Remya Nambesan and Varalaxmi Sarathkumar in the prominent roles.
Sathya – Story
Sathya (Sibiraj) and Swetha (Remya) are colleagues and are in love with each other.
They have their own love story but Swetha’s father is against it and want her daughter to marry someone else.
There ends their love story.
But four years later Sathya receives a phone call from her ex girlfriend Swetha pleading for help. She says her daughter is missing and wants him to help find her.
Sathya rushes to India (from Australia where he leads a so-so life after separation) to help her. But the mission is not easy as expected.
The investigation results in loads of conflicting details that leave Sathya totally confused and lost.
Who kidnapped the girl? Is the girl alive? Sathya tries to figure out.
Star cast, Screenplay and Acting
The movie is well supported by a tight and a racy screenplay. You also get ample twists on the go which make the movie interesting.
Another plus for the movie is the star cast.
Sibiraj fits perfectly in the role of Sathya with his beard-look and toned down emotions.
His acting has improved well – or we should say that this kind of a role suits him much better than a lover boy!
Remya does has job neatly as an emotional mother. She also pulls off the romance with Sibiraj neatly.
Varalaxmi deserves a special mention for her performance. She recently takes up bold characters and that suits her very well.
Anandraj shines as usual. His role is given subtle humour and he pulls off that without any effort.
Sathish sports a different role neatly.
Sathya – Final verdict?
If you watch Sathya without any expectations you will surely be entertained. The movie is a wonderful thriller as such.
If you watch the movie with Kshanam in mind, certain scenes could turn you off.
There were a few places where Sibiraj could have looked a bit relaxed. A couple of scenes surely sent the “cinematic” signature.
The climax should have been a lot better for this racy thriller. With all the hype and tension built up throughout the movie, the climax fails to live up to it.
Nevertheless, the movie is crisp, racy and gripping with ample twists and runs only about 2 hours which is a big plus.
The romance scenes are crafted well to give strength to the bond between the characters Sathya and Swetha while at the same time is very well toned down too, so it does not affect or interfere with the movie.
The background music perfectly supports the racy scenes and Simon deserves an applause. Songs have come out really good too.
Just go watch Sathya without any expectations and you will have a wonderful thriller to enjoy with your family!
