Diya” is the horror thriller cum revenge film scripted and directed by “A L Vijay.” LYCA Productions bankrolled the project. Sai Pallavi, the “ Premam” star leads the film with Veronica Arora. Naga Shourya plays the male lead. Besides these three, the film also has the star cast of RJ Balaji, Gandhari Nithin, Santhana Bharathi, Actress Rekha, Stunt Silva and Nizhalgal Ravi. Sam CS is the music composer and Nirav Shah is the cinematographer. Anthony looked after the edits.


Thulasi and Krishna are lovers. Thulasi gets pregnant before marriage and she was forced to abort. After aborting, she carries on her studies and Krishna gets a job. After five years, they get married. The aborted child takes the revenge on the people, who killed her and separated from her mother. One by one, the people, who are the reason for aborting her, are getting killed. Thulasi feels that something has been happening abnormal and the deaths are not natural. The next target for the baby is her dad Krishna. Will Thulasi be able to save her husband? Watch the film in theaters.

Star Performance

Sai Pallavi… once again steals the show with her excellent performance. She is really a natural performer and has done a noteworthy performance in a couple of scenes. Emotions are just flowing freely on her way. Sai Pallavi has balanced her role well as a mother and a loving wife. Baby Veronica has also given her best.


Vijay has come out with a different story and try to prove that behind every abortion, there is a crying soul. Vijay should be appreciated for choosing such a good actress for the lead role. Vijay has scripted well but has missed something while executing. BGM by Sam CS is astounding and it suits well to the communication scenes between Sai Pallavi and Veronica.

What’s There?

  • Performances by Sai Pallavi and Veronica are excellent
  • Message to the society with the pre-marital pregnancy and its effects
  • BGM by Sam CS is fantastic
  • Nirav Shah’s cinematography is worthy to mention

What’s Not There?

  • Santhana Bharathi’s role is left incomplete
  • Small flaws in executing


Diya is a good film to watch for the excellent performances of Sai Pallavi and Baby Veronica. It is sure that people will feel afraid to abort, after watching the film. Surely, it is a worthy film for the society. Kudos to the director and the stars!
