First look of Shirish's Pistha is out

The family entertainer is directed by M Ramesh Bharathi, the editor of Metro

Published: 31st May 2019

We had earlier reported that actor Shirish, who made an impressive debut with the 2016 crime thriller, Metro, is all set to star in a rural comedy-entertainer, interestingly titled Pistha. The first look of the film, directed by M Ramesh Bharathi — the editor of Metro — and featuring an ensemble cast of comedians including Senthil, Sathish, Yogi Babu, Namo Narayanan, and Sendrayan, has been released

Shirish says that the first look poster, which depicts him, the hero, abducting the all-decked-up heroine (Mrudula Murali) from a marriage hall, is in line with the light mood of the film. "The presence of Senthil, Sathish, and Yogi Babu as the henchmen, and Namo Narayanan as the prospective bridegroom in the poster gives an idea of their contribution to the film. Filled with fun, festivities, romance, and emotions, it is set in Kumbakonam. Since I play a cocky guy who owns a local 'sandhai', we went with the title of Pistha."

The film, which has Mrudula Murali of Ayal Njanalla fame and Arundhati Nair as the female leads, is currently in post-production. An official announcement regarding the release date is expected soon.
