Starring: Sasikumar, Abhinaya, Aparna, Vaibhav, AL Alagappan
Direction: Sasikumar
Music: James Vasanthan
Production: Sasikumar
‘Easan’ is Sasikumar’s second directorial venture after his debut in ‘Subramaniapuram’ and third production under his home banner Company Productions after Subramaniapuram and Pasanga. It has Samudrakani, Vaibhav, producer AL Alagappan and Abhinaya in the lead cast.

Sasikumar acted in his debut creation and then after producing and acting in a few films, he has stepped into the shoes again as Easan’s director. He seems
to be a director adept at weaving through reality, not overdoing characters or the shots thus maintaining the candidness of the storyline. Easan is supposed to be a story that happens within a day's time and also which reflects the lifestyle of Chennai.

Interesting incidents during the shoots too are reminisced by the team. During the shoot for a song on the ECR, a gang of men stalked the female lead by chasing her with their cars. It was only when Sasikumar intervened that the men realized that shooting was taking place and later apologized for their act. Camera has been handled by SR Kathir.

The music is scored by James Vasanthan who had churned out hit numbers in the film Subramaniapuram. The songs in Easan seem to rise up the bar with its young and peppy music. James Vasanthan had composed the ‘Jilla Vittu’ song for another movie but while on a discussion on a plane with Sasikumar, he decided to have the song for Easan which has been sung by Thanjai Selvi. In the movie, the folksy number features Sujatha, a successful and famous dancer from Kerala, the same ponytailed girl who leaps up and dances in joy in the song 'Kattukuyeelu Manasukkulae' from Thalapathi.

Initially produced by actor Vikram, this movie was then taken over by Sasikumar himself. The movie has Nadodigal fame Abhinaya as the female lead and Vaibhav and Aparna playing vital roles. Easan will also feature famous Malayalam director Blessy. Blessy has won innumerous Kerala state awards and a National award for his film Thanmathra. The highlight of the movie is that producer AL Alagappan will be playing a key role.

Several newcomers play supportive cast. When it is a victorious combo getting together for another project, expectations soar leaps and bounds and it applies for Easan too. It would be interesting to see if Easan has the Sasikumar stamp as it had in his earlier movies.
