Thalapathy Vijay’s super hit film, Thiruppaachi was aired last evening (April 5) on Sun TV and majority of the household audience spent their quarantine time watching the movie. This commercial potboiler was directed by Perarasu, who is known for his action packed masala entertainers. He worked with Vijay twice, in Thiruppaachi and Sivakasi and both the films were successful at the box office. Interestingly, Thiruppaachi was Perarasu’s debut directorial and it gave him a good breakthrough. It has been 15 long years since the film’s release, but still, it managed to captivate the majority of the household audience during its telecast yesterday.


Seeing the response given to the film’s telecast, an overwhelmed Perarasu took to his official Twitter space to share a few words. He said that he received many phone calls and felt as if it was the first day of the film’s release. Perarasu tweeted, “நேற்று சன் TV யில் திருப்பாச்சி திரைப்படம் ஒளிபரப்பப்பட்டது! நேற்றுதான் படம் ரிலீஸ் ஆனதுபோல் நிறைய பேர் இன்று தொலைபேசியில் பாராட்டினார்கள் . பாராட்டிய அனைவருக்கும் நன்றி”.

It has been quite a long time since we saw a Perarasu film on the big screen and his last outing in Kollywood was the Bharath starrer Thiruthani, which released in 2012. Let us dearly hope Perarasu to bounce back strongly soon! Check out his tweet below:
