What it is about…
Saattai, produced by director Prabu Solomon and John Max, is directed by M. Anbazhagan. Director Samudirakani plays the lead role of a teacher, and Swasika, his co-star. Yuvan and Mahima play the young lovers. The others in the cast are Thambi Ramaiah, Prem, Junior Balaiah and Murali. Jeeva takes care of the camera. D. Imman has scored the music and Yugabharathi has penned the lyrics. The audio of the film was released recently.
‘Jada Jada’ is sung by music composer Ramesh Vinayagam. Kids, Sai, Venkat, Haripriya, Aswath and Divya, have lent their voices to this song where the guitar predominates. ‘Sahaayane,’ rendered by Shreya Ghoshal, is a beautiful melody. ‘Andurundai Kannazhagi,’ a folk number by Chitty and Thanjai Radhika, entertains with the clarinet interludes and the Indian classical background score adding a unique flavour. ‘Adi Raangi’ in the voice of Santosh Hariharan has a rustic feel. ‘Nanbaa’ rocks in Saisaran's high-pitched voice; the Hindustani style humming by Karthikeyan enhances the impact. ‘Daya’s Insight’ is the theme song rendered by the husky-voiced Elizabeth Mani. ‘Serene Grace’ is another musical backed by Priya Hemesh's voice. What they say…
Producer John Max and Prabhu Solomon: After finishing Mynaa, we were looking for a good story. At that time, Anbazhagan who was working with us as an assistant director narrated a story which impressed us. And we decided to make the film. The story is based on a teacher-student relationship. Director Samuthirakani as the teacher and Yuvan as the student have done a wonderful job.
Director M. Anbazhagan: When I narrated the story of Saattai, I never thought my director Prabhu Solomon himself would come forward to produce it. I have made the film with utmost care and it has come out well. I feel we have a winner on our hands.
Hero Samudirakani: Parents send their children to school with utmost faith in their teachers. What the students expect from their teachers is shown in the film with interesting visuals. An entertaining movie, it has an important message thrown in. I am sure it will click at the box office.
Music director D. Imman: After Mynaa became a mega hit, we were not only happy but also cautious about our next step. Saattai is a must-watch for both young and old. I think the film’s music, the songs as well as the RR, will fetch me acclaim. I feel proud to be part of the Saattai team.
