With the shooting complete and the movie into its pre-production work, Vishal and Nayantara starrer Sathyam is all set to hit the screens and the buzz is that it will release on August 15th, Independence Day.
Vishal, known for his hard work and tremendous acting abilities is doing every stunt himself and has jelled very well with the stunt team to bring about a compelling intensity to the action part. Kannada Actor Upendra who plays the baddie is a refreshing change to Kollywood which is badly in need of a good villian. The Rs. 22 crore budget bilingual in Tamil and Telugu (Salute) produced by Vikram Krishna and directed by Rajasekhar was shot extensively in Chennai, Ladakh, Rajahmundry, Hyderabad, Kurnool and Tenkasi.
Craig Mumma, who has worked in Hollywood flicks like Mummy and Matrix has handled the graphics. A 3-minute comic scene shows Nayanthara and the kids like Tom and Jerry. The music by Harris Jeyraj is also said to be the highlight of the film. The film will simultaneously be released in Telugu as Salute. Heroine Nayantara is on the career high, with stylish her Kuselan stills also rocking the whole of Kollywood.
