Chithirai Sevvaanam marks the directorial debut of stunt choreographer Silva. The film, which explores the father-daughter relationship, features Samuthirakani, Rima Kallingal, and Pooja Kannan in lead roles. The film will stream on Zee5 from December 3, 2021.
When Silva sir approached me to play a cop role in Chithirai Sevvaanam, I drew my conclusion that it’s going to be an out-and-out action thriller. Of course, when you have the finest stunt master like Silva sir directing a film, and me playing a cop, what else can I imagine? However, my assumptions were proved wrong when he narrated to me the complete script. I was spellbound over his decision to make an emotional film that revolves around a deep bonding between father and daughter. What happens when a serious crisis strikes their little heavenly world, and how the father fights every situation to save his daughter has been very well crafted by Silva's master. Both these characters played by Samuthirakani sir and Pooja are going to leave an emotional impact, and my character as a cop has some thriller elements. Personally, I am curiously waiting to watch the chemistry between Samuthirakani sir and Pooja Kannan.” Talking about Pooja, she adds, “She has given a matured performance and this isn’t looking like her debut movie. Sharing the screen with an iconic actor like Samuthirakani sir and performing with him isn’t an easy task, but she has delivered a stellar spell. I am glad that Silva master chose to embark on his directorial venture with a film like Chithirai Sevvaanam, which will win him unconditional appreciations.”
