Director Anbhazhagan, a former associate of Mynaa fame Prabhu Solomon, in his very first attempt has taken up a big issue. A movie that speaks about the pitiable condition of school education in today's society. he has set out to find reasons as to why children hate to go to schools, which is a place to widen their knowledge.
Thanks to his mentor, who gathered guts to produce the movie in the company of John Max, and the movie ends up as an decent attempt.
In a nutshell, the film speaks about parents send their children to school with utmost faith in their teachers. What the students expect from their teachers is shown in the film with interesting visuals. An entertaining movie, it has an important message thrown in.
Samuthirakani plays the lead role and he is ably supported by the likes of Yuvan, Swaika besides Thambi Ramiah in prominent roles.
Powerful dialogues and some situational comedy makes it an interesting one.
Dayalan (Samuthirakani) joins a a government school as teacher. The school lacks in everything and students and teachers evince no interest in academics.Dayalan wants to be the saviour.
He brings in some changes and wins the support of students but one Singam Perumal (Thambi Ramiah) is his trouble.
How Dayalan achieve his mission is what the story is all about..
Samuthirakani has done his part well. He is expressive and acts with a purpose.
Yuvan and Swasika as students gel well. Thambi Ramiah walks away with applause. He is tailor-made for the character.
Sattai is movie that harps on the urgency to bring reforms in education. Anbhazhagan seems to have achieved his mission.
