The unexpected official announcement on the movie was made yesterday
Santhosh Narayanan; Arya in Sarpatta Parambarai
Among all the Tamil movies which took the direct-to-OTT route during the pandemic, only a handful of films deserved theatrical releases. Pa Ranjith's Sarpatta Parambarai, starring Arya in the lead, takes the lead among them. The movie's screenplay, performances of every actor, music and other aspects made it one of the best projects to have been released in 2021.
The film, which dropped on Amazon Prime Video, went on to garner unanimous positive reviews from critics and cinephiles from across the country. It also went on to bag several awards and recognitions in a short span of time.
Little did people expect that its makers would announce a sequel to it. An official update on the same was made yesterday evening. Both Ranjith and Arya expressed excitement on the second part of the movie, leaving everyone in a tizzy. However, many were concerned about the inclusion of musician Santhosh in it.
Santhosh Narayanan wasn't part of Ranjith's previous outing Natchathiram Nagargiradhu owing to a difference in opinion among them. The director didn't choose Santhosh for his ongoing project Thangalaan as well. GV Prakash has been composing for the Vikram-starrer. Fans of Sarpatta Parambarai, though got excited with the sequel, couldn't think of the second part without Santhosh's music in it.
Now, the man himself has hinted at being part of the much-awaited sequel. He has replied to Arya's tweet on the second part's announcement and has tagged Ranjith, too, expressing happiness on the latest happening.
This has left movie buffs elated and has put an end to speculations on another musician replacing him in Sarpatta 2. The film is expected to go on floors after Thangalaan hits the screens. The period flick is expected to be released this year.
