Brigand: Sachy had planned to make a multi-starrer with Mammootty, Prithviraj, Biju Menon, Tovino and Asif Ali
Malayalam film industry is slowly coming to terms with the unfortunate demise of writer-director Sachy. The 48-year-old passed away last Thursday after suffering a cardiac arrest. Almost all the actors and technicians from the industry mourned his passing away. Sachy’s demise comes at a time when he was at the prime form of his career. After delivering back to back superhits in ‘Driving Licence’ and ‘Ayyappanum Koshiyum’, Sachy had promised to deliver much more. He had already committed for several big projects.
Last day, in a heartfelt tribute note written by production controller Badusha, it was mentioned that Sachy was planning to make a huge multi-starrer. During the making of ‘Ayyappanum Koshiyum’ in December, Sachy had asked Badusha to register a title named, ‘Brigand’. It was for a film he was planning to make with Mammootty, Prithviraj Sukumaran, Biju Menon, Tovino Thomas and Asif Ali. It is terribly unfortunate that his untimely passing away has denied Malayali film lovers a chance to witness all these stars together on screen.
Sachy was also working on a script, which was supposed to be the directorial debut of his assistant Jayan Nambiar. Prithviraj had agreed to play the lead role in that film. Apart from that, Sachy was also set to direct a film with Biju Menon. He left for the heavenly abode without being able to materialize many such projects and leaving behind more compelling stories.
