The movie, which was released last year, opened to mixed-to-positive reviews from audiences, who enjoyed the light-hearted theme of the film.
Ashok Selvan, who is known for romantic dramas such as Oh My Kadavule, revealed that he liked the theme of the film. In an interview, the actor revealed that Saba Nayagan is a community experience. “We have tried to evoke a particular emotion in a fun and entertaining film. It is a film that college students can enjoy watching. It is a community-watching experience. It is not like Por Thozhil, where you have to concentrate on the details of each frame,” the actor explained.
Besides Ashok Selvan, the film also stars three female leads, played by Megha Akash, Karthika Muralidharan and Chandini Chowdary. They play the love interests at different stages of Saba’s life.
Besides the lead cast, the romantic drama also stars Mayilsamy, Michael Thangadurai, Udumalai Ravi, Arun Kumar, Jaiseelan Sivaram, Sriram Krish, Sherlin Seth, Viviyasanth, Akshaya Hariharan and Tulasi Shivamani in key roles.
Meanwhile, the Tamil actor’s latest outing Blue Star, a sports drama, hit the theatres today (January 25). The film is based on clashes between two teams in a cricket contest. Shanthnu and Keerthi Pandian play other lead characters in this sports drama which is directed by S Jeyakumar and bankrolled by director Pa Ranjith.
