An intense action drama in the works
According to the director Arun Matheshwaran, Saani Kayidham will be an action drama which is loosely based on certain events that took place in the 1980s. He felt that Selvaraghavan would do justice to his role both physically and acting-wise and was happy that the director chose to commence his acting career with this film. Selvaraghavan too, took to social media to express his pleasure on being chosen for this exciting project. In the first look poster, both leads are seen with their backs to the viewers holding a bloody knife and a gun while facing what looks like a silhouette of attackers around a van. The plot and the characters of the two leads has still been kept under wraps. Selvaraghavan himself has a unique style of filmmaking and it will be interesting to see how he uses those sensibilities in his acting. Regarding the title, Arun states that “Saani Kaayidham means paper made from low-quality pulp. The significance of the title will be known once people watch the film.”Yamini Yagnamurthy, who shot Sillu Karupatti is the cinematographer of this film. Ramu Thangaraj, who has worked on Pariyerum Perumal and Rocky, will be the art director. As of now, the film is being planned for a theatrical release.
