Sathya Synopsis : An IT employee, who works in Australia, gets a call from his ex-lover, asking him to help her find her missing daughter. The former has a tough time ahead when he comes to know about some shocking revelations

Sathya Review : Remaking an intense suspense thriller isn't an easy job. Kshanam, a Tollywood film which released almost two years ago, was lauded for its neatly arranged intriguing sequences. When a Tamil version of the film was announced, with a different cast altogether, a faithful attempt, if not more, is what one obviously expected.

Sathya (Sibiraj) and Swetha (Remya), who work in the same company, fall in love with each other though the latter's father (Nizhalgal Ravi) wants her daughter to get married to someone who is more eligible. A slew of unexpected turn of events separate them - a few years later, Swetha is married and has a kid, while Sathya leads a not-so-happy life in Australia. One fine day, Sathya gets a call from Swetha, pleading him to help her find her missing girl. He flies down to Chennai to help her ex-lover, but to the shock of his life, he realises that something mysterious is happening with respect to the missing child.

A car dealer, Babu Khan (Sathish), whom he encounters by chance, Swetha's drug addict brother-in-law Bobby (Ravi Varma), police officials Chowdry (Anandraj) and Anuya (Varalaxmi) - all of them come up with contrasting remarks about the missing case which put Sathya in a state of fix. He loses hope as investigation progresses, which disappoints Swetha. Who has kidnapped her daughter? Will Sathya be able to help her ex-flame?

What makes the simple premise of the film a riveting one is its racy screenplay with ample twists in regular intervals and mysterious characterisations which add to the overall curiosity associated with the story from the very first scene. Sibi, in the role of a confused and aggressive guy who is on a mission, has put up a fine performance and is equally good in emotional scenes, too. Remya Nambeesn, as a concerned mother, is apt for her role, enacting her scenes well, while Varalaxmi packs a surprise punch as a strict cop. Anandraj, as a dedicated cop is a scream, thanks to the subtle humour provided to his character. Sathish, too, is a delight to watch as he has been shown in a different shade, perhaps for the first time. However, the hurried climax, with little convincing portions towards the end, could have been avoided. Nevertheless, Sathya is an engrossing watch which joins the list of interesting thriller films made in Tamil this year.
