Sachy (1972-2020): Celebrities mourn the loss of Malayalam screenwriter-director

Malayalam screenwriter and director Sachy passed away in Thrissur on Thursday. He was 48.

Sachy was admitted to a private hospital in Thrissur on Tuesday following cardiac-related complications after undergoing a hip-replacement surgery at another hospital in Vadakkanchery. He was in a critical condition and on ventilator for the past two days.

Leaving behind a career in law, Sachy entered the Malayalam film industry as a screenwriter. Along with writer Sethu, he penned movies like Chocolate, Robin Hood, Makeup Man, Seniors and Doubles. He, however, parted ways with Sethunath in 2011. Sachy then went solo and penned movies like Run Baby Run, Chettayees, Ramaleela, Sherlock Toms and Driving License. He also wrote and directed Anarkali and Ayyappanum Koshiyum.

Parvathy Thiruvothu shared on Facebook, “Sachy sir. Another irrevocable loss to cinema. Sending love and strength to the bereaved family and loved ones”

“RIP Sachi etta! Feels like we met just the other day while Varane Avashyamund and Ayyapanum Koshyiyum dubs were going on simultaneously at the same studio. Your innings as a director made you a force to reckon with. I was such a fan of your work. Each film better than the other. A huge huge loss to our industry. Condolences and prayers to all those who loved you and knew you,” Dulquer Salmaan said via Twitter.

Navya Nair posted on Instagram, “RIP .. gone too soon .. a big loss to malayalam cinema ..”

Prithviraj’s wife Supriya Menon Prithviraj took to Instagram and wrote, “Sachy; what does one write when one is bidding good bye to a wordsmith. I did not know you so well personally, mostly as Raju’s friend and a master storyteller. Professionally we collaborated recently on Driving License and at that time I had a chance to interact with you several times and get to know the genius that you were, nay shall I say are. There were so many stories that were in you, so many untold gems. Your passing is a huge loss to the industry, your friends and family alike. We will always remember you for your wonderful stories, the characters you built in them, your mirthful laugh clubbed with a mouthful of profanities! You will be sorely missed Sachy, especially by your friend Raju whom you considered your younger brother. Your light will forever shine thru all those words that flowed out of you in beautiful prose. Rest in peace dear Sachy. May your family and friends find strength in these trying times.”

Vishnu Vishal tweeted, “Dir #Sachy 💔 #Rip Breaks my heart …Heartfelt condolences to the family and film fraternity..Two malayalam films that i loved the most recently …Rest in peace..#ayyapanumkoshiyum #drivinglicense”

Basil Joseph shared on Twitter, “At the peak of his career.. 💔 Thank you so much for all the entertainment. Rest in Peace.”

“One of the Best Script Writer and Finest Director of Mollywood! RIP,” Sunny Wayne said via Twitter.

Aju Varghese posted on Twitter, “A big loss….May your soul rest in peace! Love and prayers.”

Tovino Thomas took to Twitter and wrote, “You’ll be terribly missed Sachietta!!”

Nivin Pauly tweeted, “Shocked to hear the sudden demise of Sachy ettan. Indeed a big loss to Malayalam cinema. May his soul rest in peace!”

Bollywood actor-producer John Abraham is set to bankroll the Hindi remake of Sachy’s Ayyappanum Koshiyum.

In a statement, John said, “Ayyappanum Koshiyum is an entertaining film that strikes a perfect balance between action, thrill and a good story. This film also fits right into our future plans as we believe that the Hindi film industry will bounce back with efficient and entertaining projects soon after the COVID-19 crisis.”
