Vijay Sethupathi – Gayathrie starrer film ‘Mellisai’ has been a long pending release since the film was wrapped up two year back. Initially the film was titled in a melodic style (Mellisai), but due to the high voltage content, the team has now changed the title from ‘MELLISAI’ to ‘PURIYADHA PUTHIR’.
Directed by Ranjith Jeyakodi, the film ‘PURIYADHA PUTHIR’ is produced by ‘Rebel Studio’ and the distribution rights have been bagged by J Satish Kumar under the banner JSK Film Corporation. It is to be noted that the 1990 film ‘PURIYADHA PUTHIR’, directed by KS Ravikumar had earned huge positive acclaims and praises from the audience.
“I fell in awe once I saw the movie. It had all the necessary commercial ingredients to be parked along with the best of commercial films. We were apprehensive about the title ” Mellisai ” since we felt it was too soft. We wanted the title to be ‘Dynamic’ because of the high voltage script… And for a high-powered star like Vijay Sethupathi surely a Melodic title will not be a choice at this point of his carreer.
We felt Puriyatha Puthir would be apt for this script and reached out to Super Good Films Choudary sir and he was magnanimous in giving the title. The title has brought this film good fortunes and we are planning to release this film on November.
This will be Vijay Sethupathy’s seventh release this year and co-incidentally his fifth film for my company. We are very confident of a hit that will cement his place as the most successful star of the year,” says J Satish Kumar of ‘JSK Film Corporation’.
