Produced by Manobala & released by Lingusamy's Thirrupathy Brothers, this movie is already getting rave reviews from preview audiences, promos & its music. had a chance to interact with the director of this film H. Vinoth. Here are the excerpts:

Sathuranga Vettai has garnered tremendous positive buzz and the promos look very impressive. Your thoughts?
The major credit for the entire positive buzz should go to Thirrupathi Brothers. Although creating a good story and selecting a good cast was my responsibility,Thirrupathi brothers have done a fantastic job in marketing this film and it is because of such good marketing that there is a good buzz around our film. 

What made Manobala agree to produce this movie?
I met Manobala sir after making the script.  Since he liked the script so much and found it very different, he agreed to make this film. When I made the script, I made sure the script is appealing and different. 

What was the reaction of some of the film personalities after seeing the previews & rushes?
The biggest compliment came from Director Bala. When he was watching the preview show at Four Frames, I was nervous. Once the preview got over, he came upto me and asked me whether I'm the director and then hugged me. He liked the movie very much and started discussing all the details about the nuances in the film. That was as big a recognition anyone could get. Director Lingusamy was shooting for Anjaan in Mumbai. So, he watched the movie over there around 2. 30 in the night and he liked the movie too. Other top directors like Balaji Sakthivel, Thiagarajan Kumararaja, Sasi & many others saw & appreciated as well. 

How did you freeze on Natraj as the hero?
As soon as I made the script, I tried many actors for the lead role. Then, I got Natraj's contact and after meeting him I decided immediately that he is perfect for the script. He has done a great job in this film and the audience will love his character. 

Sean Roldan is one of the young & happening music composers at the moment whose work is getting good critical acclaim.  How was he roped in?
Sean Roldan has totally enhanced the movie with his background score which will be talked about once the movie releases. There are two fantastic melody tracks in the album as well.  He is one music composer who likes to experiment with every genre.  When I asked him for a kuthu track, he would suggest trying out an 'electronic kuthu' track. He is that much innovative and has great music knowledge.
