Sevappi, featuring Shravan Athevethan, MS Rishikanth and Poornima Ravi in lead roles, will be released this week.
The makers of Sevappi, OTT platform Aha Tamil’s original film, have zeroed in on the release date of the movie. The film is set to be released on January 12 on the leading OTT platform. Helmed and written by MS Raaja, the upcoming movie features Shravan Athevethan, MS Rishikanth and Bigg Boss Tamil fame Poornima Ravi in the lead roles. The makers have also released a new teaser from the film.
Is Sevappi a rip off of Saivam?
The teaser shows that the film is set against the backdrop of a rural region, where tensions arise following the disappearance of a hen that belonged to one of the village people. The hen, however, was stolen by a little boy who adores the bird. Going by the first look, the film strikingly resembles A L Vijay’s critically acclaimed film Saivam. However, we are yet to watch the film to find out if it explores any other interesting theme in this rural drama.
The movie was first officially selected for the 7th IFFF - International Folklore Film Festival, Thrissur, 2024.
Sevappi’s technical crew
The movie’s technical crew includes cinematographer Manoharan along with editor Vachu Laskmin, who has handled the VFX of the film. The music has been scored by A Praveen Kumar. The movie is bankrolled by Rajeshwar Kalisamy and Prasanna Balachandran.
Poornima Ravi’s next outing
Sevappi marks the next outing of Bigg Boss Tamil fame Poornima Ravi, who was last seen in Nayanthara-starrer culinary drama Annapoorani: The Goddess of Food. The young actress, who appeared in Bigg Boss Tamil season 7, started her stint as an actor with the 2019 web series MINE. She has also starred in other web series including Selfie Kadhal, and The Roommate - In my Vaazhkai.
