Legendary filmmaker IV Sasi passes away at 69

Malayalam renowned director I.V. Sasi died at age 69 today says report. Sasi started his career began as an art director in 1968 for Kaliyalla Kalyanam. In the vacuum left by Jayan's untimely death in late 1980, while most of the other directors persisted with Sukumaran and Soman, Sasi chose to give opportunities to the next generation of actors including Mammootty, Ratheesh and Mohanlal. IV Sasi has a career span of 32 years. He was also a national award-winning director who worked as director of various blockbuster movies such as Aalkkoottathil Thaniye, Devasuram and Aavanazhi. He is also one of the rare directors who had maximum films between 1970 and 1990.

Sasi's magic last worked in 2003 when "Balram Vs Tharadas" met with reasonable success. Other factors like (music director) Shyam's background scores and brilliant writers like T Damodaran and MT Vasudevan Nair can not be discounted but it would be eye-opening for a movie connoisseur to compare the films MT wrote for Sasi and Hariharan (a legend in his own right and a contemporary of Sasi) respectively to see how differently they eventually turned out. The most notable one to create waves and stands the test of time came out in 1993. The director with his characteristic white hat, as actor Jagadeesh recalled, directed over 150 movies in various languages. Though the legendary filmmaker was known for his work in the Malayalam industry, he also directed a few Hindi and Tamil films in his 34-year-long filmi career.
