Director Pa Ranjith delivered a knockout punch with his film Sarpatta Parambarai, which was released on Amazon Prime Video on July 22. The film starring Arya, Pasupathy and Dushara Vijayan is receiving accolades for a riveting screenplay that kept the audience hooked throughout three hours. Apart from Arya and Pasupathy, actress Dushara Vijayan who played the role of Mariyamma in the film stole the show with her performance. She said, "I am inclined to joyful and emotional over the response. I thank Pa. Ranjith sir, for this lifetime opportunity. I had to wait for a long time to get such an offer and am glad that it happened with Sarpatta Parambarai."
Dushara revealed that she didn't believe when he first received a call from Pa Ranjith sir's office. It was after seeing 17 missed calls, she realised the seriousness. In a statement, she said, "I instantly rushed to his office and apologized to him for my ignorance. Pa. Ranjith sir was polite, and he asked me to enact a scene. Eventually, I somewhat felt that he was unconvinced, which urged me to keep pushing the bars ahead. Finally, he got convinced during the photoshoot that I would pull it off perfectly. I am not able to step out of the world of Mariyamma, and it will take some time. I am so glad that my long wait for a breakthrough happened with Sarpatta Parambarai.”
