Noted Malayalam Filmmaker IV Sasi Dies At 69 In Chennaiā€

The legendary director, who made as many as 150 movies in Malayalam, Tamil and Hindi, dominated the Mollywood industry for nearly four decades since 1970s. He officially started working as a director in 1975 with the film Utsavam.

"The demise of I V Sasi, who has given us evergreen hits and has directed the most number of movies in Malayalam, is a loss that can not be compensated".

He went on to marry Seema, who starred in several of his memorable films.

Condolences are flowing in from all the corners at the death of iconic director I V Sasi. Some of his famous films include - Eeta, Mrigaya, 1921, Adimakal Udamakal, Inspector Balram, Devasuram, Avalude Raavukal. Also, if we say that he is the one who gifted superstardom to Mammootty then we will be right because I V Sasi made around 35 projects with him. The MD of Aries Group said he discussed about the film with Sasi even two days before the latter's death.

With over 150 movies to his credit, Sasi made a mark in the industry through the path breaking movie Avalude Ravukal, a sympathetic look at the life of a sex worker. While he directed the first color cinema in Malayalam, Itha Ivide Varae (1977), he also made the first Cinemascope movie, Alavuddinum Athbhudhavilakum (1979). He directed Rajesh Khanna in Anokha Rishta in 1986.

Sasi's magic last worked in 2003 when "Balram Vs Tharadas" met with reasonable success. Actor-producer Nivin Pauly said Sasi was an "icon who created cinema that stood the test of time" and "bridged the gap between commerce and art in Malayalam cinema".

The director has worked with some of the biggest stalwarts in Malayalam and Tamil cinema. Man Ke Aangan, Patita, Karishma were some of the Hindi films that the director directed in the 70s and 80s.

Sasi's long-term friend and Tamil superstar Kamal Haasan tweeted: "My friend for 45 years I V Sasi is no more".
