“Heroes get to enact a variety of emotions, unlike comedians,” says actor Sathish

<p>It takes a lot of effort to go even an inch outside of your comfort zone, as anybody who has attempted to lose weight will agree. Entertainer Sathish, who is mostly recognized for his comedic parts, is stepping outside of his comfort zone in Vithaikkaaran, where he plays a magician who assists a group in carrying off a robbery. He grinned, “I know every actor says this, but I also started going to the gym. I just wanted to look better on camera, not bulk up.”</p>

<p>Sathish responds, “First of all, the story was engaging and Vithaikkaaran does have dark humour, but my character will not be the one delivering funny lines,” when asked why there was such a quick desire to shift. Furthermore, this is a technique I borrowed from my days in theater plays rather than a sudden, purposeful transition from humorous to tragic parts. I have performed with Crazy Mohan Sir’s group in both serious and humorous parts. It all comes down to how engaging a character is.</p>
<p>What, then, is intriguing to him about his role in Vithaikkaaran? “I appreciate heroes who utilize cunning to achieve their goals,” Sathish responds. “For example, in Kaththi’s coin fight scene, someone like Vijay Sir could have easily defeated the antagonists and nobody would have objected.” However, the reason the battle scene remains iconic even now is because the protagonist outwits the antagonists before engaging in combat.</p>
<p>The actor continues by describing how his future movie, Sattam En Kayyil, would highlight this particular character quirk further. The protagonist of this criminal thriller becomes imprisoned within a police station and has complete control over everything that happens there. You’re left wondering throughout the movie and beginning to wonder whether he’s the villain.</p>
<p>In the film business in particular, experiments are often seen as dangerous as all the work is lost if the public doesn’t like it. Despite the danger involved in his step outside of his comfort zone, Sathish seems unaffected.</p>
<p>“Not being frightened of the audience is one of the main skills I learned during my days in the play group. Hundreds of people are watching you perform in front of them, so it’s already a success to get over your stage anxiety and say your lines, much alone do them well. I am thus willing to take on any position, provided it is intriguing.</p>
<p>Sathish has obviously drifted towards main parts in recent years, as seen by his roles in films such as Naai Sekar (2022) and Conjuring Kannappan (2023), apart from his insatiable appetite for compelling characters.</p>
<p>Aside from the obvious reasons, Sathish explains why lead parts are appealing: “I enjoy portraying a range of emotions, and unlike comedians, only heroes get to portray a variety of emotions.” However, it doesn’t imply that this is my only desire. Since the narrative is the protagonist, I’m willing to play either a wholly tragic or humorous part when a compelling tale calls for it.</p>
<p>Sathish knows how a writer can make or ruin an actor’s career, having helped seasoned actor Crazy Mohan with dialogue for movies like Vasool Raja MBBS (2004). The actor uses a discussion with late comedian Vivekh to explain why writing is even more important for an actor like him. He cautioned me and other performers like him that we are not the kind of people who can make an audience laugh just by walking in front of the camera. Since we are neither Vadivelu Sir or Yogi Babu Sir, we must depend only on writing in order to pull off a joke. I was guided by such guidance for years. Sathish’s practical side recognizes his limitations even if he has faith in his capacity to assess a piece of writing’s quality. “You can never predict the crowd or their behavior. In a particular sequence from Ethir Neechal, Sivakarthikeyan and I were joined by Anirudh for a brief appearance. He chuckles, “We were in splits during the filming and we were sure the audience would love it but there was dead silence in the theaters.” However, we were anxious while filming Conjuring Kannappan since nobody laughed on the sets. But the theater’s reaction was better than we could have imagined.</p>
<p>In regards to his pursuit of parts that are diverse, Sathish says, “I would love to do what Vijay Sethupathi sir did in Pizza and I really enjoyed Por Thozhil recently.” These were movies with compelling characters that succeeded mostly because of their excellent writing, not because of the genre.</p>
