S.P. Narasimhan, who had till recently been working as an assistant director under producer-director-actor Sasikumar, turns director with an upcoming film titled as Por Seiyya Pazhagu. Sasikumar is seen as someone who encourages all his assistants to go it alone and in the cut-throat world of films, Sasikumar’s encouragement is widely appreciated by the critics and film-lovers.
Por Seiyya Pazhagu is produced by Master Movie Makers and the camera is being handled by Gopinath. Kay, the music director of films such as Yudhdham Sei, Mugamudi, etc., scores the music of Por Seiyya Pazhagu.
A hunt is on to select the lead pair and other artistes and technicians to work in the film. The cast details and other technical details would be revealed soon, informs Narasimhan.
Incidantally, Narasimhan is the second among Sasikumar’s aides to turn director(s) on their own. Last year, S.R. Prabhakaran, the former assistant of Sasikumar, made his successful debut as director in Kollywood by making the Sasikumar-Lakshmi Menon starrer Sundarapandian. It remains to be seen whether Narasimhan makes a strong impression as a film-maker with his very first venture.
