Director Ezhil is known for helping comedy entertainers. However, this time, he has stepped out of his comfort zone to direct a murder mystery thriller titled Yutha Satham. For the same, he has roped in Parthiepan and Gautham Karthik in lead roles. The first look poster of Yutha Satham was unveiled by Vijay Sethupathi. The story of the film is written by crime novelist Rajesh Kumar.
Director Ezhil says, "Yutha Satham is so special and close to my heart. The first and foremost reason is that it is completely different and unique from my earlier movies. So far, I have made only comedy oriented films, and this one is an edge-of-seat murder mystery. Its not just the genre or premise, but even the making style is totally different from my erstwhile movies. The movie title Yutham Sei is same as the novel name written by Rajesh Kumar sir. He even appreciated me for not stepping out of the story premise he has written. Moreover, I had earlier worked as assistant director to Parthiepan sir and now its really great to be directing him. Even now, he keeps imparting some extraordinary techniques of storytelling to me. Gautham Karthik is an exceptional talent and he has done a remarkable job. Audience will enjoy this edge of seat thriller from the beginning till end."
