Bhaskar Sakthi

SERIALS & SHOWS - 1


Bhaskar Sakthi is a renowned dialogue writer in Tamil movies. Most of his films had punch dialogues and were family entertainers. His dialogues in the movie were lengthy ones. His roles are versatile ranging from comedy, character, and sentiments. Plus, his films have melodrama that is often well enacted by lead actors. That is the only reason why his movies are always winning in Kollywood.

Based on the story, direction and screenplay of Thirumurugan, 'Em Magan' (2006) was a movie that had dialogues by Bhaskar Sakthi. Remember the dialogues of the movie penned by Bhaskar Sakthi for an actor like Nassar and Saranya? Without good dialogues, can anybody praise the performance of the lead actors?

Later on, he got much gravity for his work in other Kollywood movies. Bhaskar Sakthi has also written the dialogues of Vikram’s Rajapattai, Vishnu’s  Vennila Kabadi Kuzhu, and Bharath starrer Em Magan. He also wrote for Vishal starrer ‘Pandiya Naadu,’ Karthi starrer ‘Naan Mahaan Alla.’ This writer disliked the idea of writing dialogues or even story for lengthy serials.

He first wanted to write dialogues for those serials which had limited number of episodes. He used to plan for the right script in the TV series. He is well known for TV soaps like Metti Oli ( Sun TV) and Kolangal fame series ( Sun TV) those aired on private Tamil language TV channel. Bhaskar Sakthi has also maintained his career in a smooth flow by writing books and evolved himself as a true writer in Tamil literature.

In the earlier days, Bhaskar Sakthi worked in two Suseenthiran's movies, and they include Vikram starrer Rajapattai (2011) and Vishnu Vishal starrer Vennila Kabadi Kuzhu (2009). For  Kabbadi, the story was written by Suseenthiran, and for Vikram starrer movie, it was a story was based on a tale by Seenu Vasan.

While Rajapattai (Vikram movie) was watchable for its enriched production values, the film did more magic on songs than its dialogues. But it was the Kabbadi movie that was much better known for its screenplay and even dialogues. The film scored well for the insults and pains the player go through the movie.

In the year 2011, Bhaskar Sakthi wrote the story & dialogue for the movie 'Azhagarsamiyin Kudhirai' which was again directed by Suseenthiran. This film received positive reviews. This film was a charming rural tale with engaging dialogues, and it maintained the flow of the movie in an easy going and heartwarming manner which made the film more realistic one.

It was not only a brilliant movie of Suseenthiran. Because the story was unconventional and had several plots. The dialogues were "good" that deserved a thorough viewing because such films were far and few to find in Kollywood. The film premiered at Toronto International Film Festival in 2011.

In the year 2013, director and writer made another movie 'Pandiya Naadu' which was produced by actor Vishal and had the screenplay written by Vishal himself. This film had dialogues by Bhaskar Sakthi. In this movie, Vishal and Lakshmi Menon worked together.

This film was also an off-beat movie and enjoyed a huge applause from the critics. It had a great script, well-written dialogues, feet-tapping music and excellent performances, it was a good revenge drama supported by taut narration and wonderful dialogues and performances. The film was a winner because of Suseenthiran’s craft in direction.
