Sam Anton is a Tamil director who is currently making his presence felt in the Kollywood industry. His first film was showered with accolades and compliments from the audience and soared its way into being a commercial success. He is currently working on his next project which is slated to be released in June 2017. Born on January 1, 1982, the young director became a thorough professional in the field with the release of his first movie named Darling. Geetha Arts and Studio Green were the producing banners, and when it was unveiled on the theaters during early 2015, it made a long-lasting impact in the Kollywood industry.
The horror comedy was a riot from start to finish and received many rave reviews for the witty and fast-paced funny lines and dialogues as well as spooking the viewers in some of the scenes. Sam Anton, in his debut film, cracked the method of excelling in this genre, unlike other directors who have consistently failed in such movies. Prema Katha Chitran is the original version of this film. The horror comedy flick starred G V Prakash, Nikki Galrani and Karunas among others. It was mostly a heroine-centric film with Nikki Galrani playing the focal role. Unlike his first directorial venture, Sam Anton's next film named Enaaku Innoru Peru Irukku was released in 2016 and was a hero-centric film altogether.
The movie released in mid-2016 received a somewhat positive response from the audiences in the theaters. Although those positive feedbacks didn't make the film a super hit at the Box Office, it certainly was an average earner and cemented Sam Anton's status in the Kollywood industry as a director with great skills and a future ahead. The basic premise of the film action comedy is that of a gangster's journey.
The rise of the underworld goon is portrayed by, Sam Anton's debut film's hero, G. V. Prakash. The movie has a fair share of prominent actors playing important side character roles, but the protagonist is the central focus in the action flick. The humor side of Ennaku Innoru Peru Irukku is both loud and high octane. It showed the directors knack of using wacky characters in his movies. An odd yet fascinating fact of the movie was that Sam Anton shot 70% of the film during the night time. It is produced by a big banner named Lyca Productions, which is currently also working on Rajnikanth's next film 2.O.
