Director Ezhil on working with Parthiban

Director Ezhil is back with his upcoming mystery-thriller titled Yudha Satham, which has Parthiban and Gautham Karthik in lead roles. The first look of the movie was earlier released that featured both the actors sharing an intense look. This will be the first time the director is stepping out of his go-to genre of rom-com and comedy-drama to explore a mystery-thriller.

According to an ETimes report, Ezhil revealed that Yudham Satham, is the adaptation of a novel of the same name, written by Rajesh Kumar. Ezhil shared that a friend of his introduced him to the works of Rajesh Kumar and came upon the book. “Rajesh Kumar asked me what kind of script I was looking for, and I told him that since I’d be making the film with Parthiban sir and a young hero, something like a murder mystery would be perfect,” he said. After reading Yudha Satham, the director was thrilled by the story and decided to make it into a movie.

Before he started directing his own movies, Ezhil previously worked as an assistant director and had also collaborated with Parthiban. “Even during the days when I was his assistant director, he would be very casual with me. So, I did not have any major problem directing him,” he said.

He talked about how quickly the veteran actor grasps the needed information and makes suggestions for scenes. He also mentioned that getting used to the actor’s pace of acting and thinking took some time. Ezhil shared that the actor gave him confidence while working in a new genre and the process was a learning experience for him.
