Will Sachi-Sethu team join again ?

In Mollywood there have been many director and scriptwriting duo like Siddique Lal, Rafi Mecartin and Udhayakrishna Sibi K Thomas. One among them was the scriptwriting duo of Sachi and Sethu. The two have together scripted some superhit movies like Chocolate, Makeup Man and Seniors. But both of them have now parted ways and are working individually. Sachi made his directorial debut in 2015 with the superhit movie Anarkali starring Prithviraj Sukumaran in the lead. Now, Sethu is also gearing up for his debut direction through a Mammootty starrer. In a recent interview, Sethu shared more about the reason for the split and whether they will join together in the future.

“Many people have been asking mr about this. People want to know whether Sachi and Sethu will work together again. We both parted ways after realising that we both had varied perceptions and outlooks. For example, it was very difficult for me to convince Sachi about Mallu Singh and similarly I was not convinced with Run Baby Run. So we decided to work individually. After that both of us were caught up in our works and had no time to discuss things. But we are still very good friends, our family members often meet. We both read our scripts also. Recently, Sachi called and told me about a script that we both had written long back. I have agreed to it and we are planning to work together on the project by the end of this year.”

After their split, Sachi has worked in three movies – Run Baby Run, Chettayees (which he also co-produced) and Anarkali while Sethu has worked in 4 movies, all of them being multistarrers.

Vysakh’s Mallu Singh starring Unni Mukundan, Kunchacko Boban, Biju Menon and Manoj K Jayan was his first individual script. He then teamed up with B Unnikrishnan for I Love Me starring Unni Mukundan, Asif Ali and Anoop Menon in the lead. After that he worked with veteran director Joshiy in Salam Kashmeer starring Jayaram and Suresh Gopi. His last release was Cousins directed by Vysakh which had Kunchacko Boban, Indrajith, Joju George and Suraj Venjaramoodu in the lead roles.

Shoot for Sethu’s latest project Achayans directed by Kannan Thamarakkulam is under progress. It is also a multistarrer featuring Jayaram, Prakash Raj, Unni Mukundan, Adil Ibrahim, Sanju Sivaram and Amala Paul in pivotal characters.
