Director Pa Ranjith's upcoming film Sarpatta Parambarai is one of the most anticipated films of this year. Starring Arya, Dushara Vijayan, and Kalaiyarasan, Sarpatta Parambarai is a boxing-based film set in the backdrop of North Madras. The film will follow the clash between two clans in North Madras - Sarpatta and Idiyappa. The film will be directly released on Amazon Prime Video on July 22. Due to the COvid-19 pandemic, the makers decided to postpone the theatrical release.
In a statement, director Ranjith spoke about why the film is extremely special to him. He said, "This film is very special to me as I had written this 10 years back and was waiting for the right time to take it ahead. I wanted the audience to get the authentic boxing of the 70s. Not only the era but how the sport was placed at that time. To understand the technique and to form the boxer’s character, I decided to take boxing training and share my vision through the actors by sharing it with them. We all got trained at fisherman Island, followed a strict diet, and stayed focused till we shot for the film. As a part of the preparation, I went under six months of Boxing training, before starting the project to understand the sport and to put possible minor details to make it look real.”
