  • Sasi started out as an art director in the late 1960s and directed his debut feature Utsavam in 1975. File

In fact, Rajinikanth's Malayalm debut was also helmed by him.

Irruppam Veedu Sasidaran, populary known as I.V Sasi - Watch video Interview, who made all heads turn and look at Malayalam cinema with a bold movie "Avalude Ravukal" in 1982, passed away here today after a brief illness.

IV Sasi was known primarily for his Malayalam films which were popular at the box office.

"My friend for 45 years I.V.Sasi is no more". Filmmaker M Padmakumar, who had assisted Sasi in abound 18 films said, "It is similar to taming an elephant that had turned violent with a mere glance". We are sure that people are surely going to miss this legend for his good work.

In 2006, after overcoming a lot of obstacles, Sasi made an ambitious comeback with the Mammootty-Katrina Kaif-starrer Balram vs Taradas, where the mega star played both the title characters he played in earlier blockbusters made by Sasi.

Reports are coming that He is survived by wife Seema, son Ani, and daughter Anu.




In many ways, Mammotty's roles in IV Sasi's films came to herald the new age Malayali man - he was grim, educated, hardly smiled or romanced but was pined after by the woman for his good looks and high character, nearly flawless, almost heroic demeanor. V. Sasi married Malayalam film actress Seema on 28 August 1980.

He has made around 150 films in various languages including Hindi.

Alavudeenum Albudavilakkum, Eeta, Guru and Vritham were some of the super hit movies directed by I.V Sasi with the versatile actor Kamal Haasan. 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".

Multi-starrers were an IV Sasi trademark.

IV Sasi also directed two Tamil films with Rajnikanth - Kaali and Ellaam Unn Kairaasi; the former was a hit. In 1882, he has won Nargis Dutt Award for his Malayalam film Aroodam.
