Actor Sarath Kumar made a headline in Kollywood by bagging a role in " Bench Talkies- The First Bench" which was an independent anthology film that had six independent writers and directors. The film had a limited release as there was no right channel to screen the movie in theatres, but was screened in PVR Cinema houses in Bengaluru and Coimbatore including Sathyam Theatre in Chennai.

Actor Sarath Kumar and Rishikanth Rajendran featured in lead roles in the movie "Puzhu" which was directed by Charukesh Sekar. This short film dealt with the enmity of two people, who dare to go to an extreme step of killing each other and the film was extremely shot in Black and White.

In this movie, actor Sarath Kumar really had put his soul in acting, Karthik Subbaraj who stormed into the Tamil film industry with the hugely acclaimed Pizza, and Jigarthanda ventured into production with this film “Bench Talkies” and the actor Karthik bankrolled the project under his production banner, Stone Bench Creations.

This film gave an opportunity for Sarath Kumar to showcase his talent. Unfortunately, it’s a very ordinary break for an actor, leaving us with no knowledge about Sarath Kumar’s full-fledged growth in Tamil movies. The actor needs a good supporting character role in movies now to impress one and all.
