Karthik Dial Seytha Yenn: Gautham Menon’s short instills hope in the time of a pandemic – regional movies


Filmmaker Gautham Vasudev Menon’s new short movie Karthik Dial Seytha Yenn, which was once released on Thursday, instills hope in the time of coronavirus pandemic. The short follows Karthik, played by Simbu, who is having a author’s block. He calls Jessie (Trisha) to find inspiration but in the process reveals that he still loves her. She’s now merrily married and a mother of two.

Karthik and Jessie are characters Gautham Menon’s highly successful romantic drama Vinnaithaandi Varuvaaya. The shot, in approximately 12 minutes, tries to encapsulate what has happened in the lives of Karthik and Jessie since the movie.


Right through the phone conversation, Jessie tries to console Karthik, a man-child struggling to grow out of his insecurities. She instills hope that everything is going to be alright.

The industry grapevine is that the short is a precursor to the sequel to Vinnaithaandi Varuvaaya, which Gautham Menon plans to make soon. He recently revealed that he’s able to go to shoot for the sequel whether he gets a go ahead from Simbu.

On the career front, the filmmaker has two projects able for release. While he has completed shooting and awaits release of Joshua, an action-thriller; he’s stuck with post-production work on his long-delayed spy thriller, Dhruva Natchathiram.

Gautham recently confirmed he has plans to make a sequel to cop thriller Vettaiyaadu Villayadu. In his interview The Hindu, Gautham confirmed approximately Vettaiyaadu Villayadu 2. In the interview, talking approximately the epic opening scene in the first part, Gautham said it’s a fan’s tribute to Kamal Haasan.

“I am a immense fanboy who wrote that scene although the remainder of the movie was once not like that, just for the audience to celebrate this man. You step excluding the filmmaker you are momentarily. That was once a fan’s tribute. Vettaiyaadu Villayadu 2 also has a similar opening scene and I’m in reality taking a look forward to shoot that,” Gautham said.
