Prithviraj pays tribute to Sachy, pens emotional note on his death

sachy

Actors Prithviraj and Biju Menon acted in most films made by Sachy. The relationship between Sachy and Prithviraj started with 2007 movie 'Chocolate'. Sachy was the co-screenwriter for the hit movie. When he directed a movie for the first time, Prithviraj was his hero. In his last movie, Ayyappanum Koshiyum, Sachy roped in Prithviraj to do the lead role. Sachy had earlier said that Prithviraj and Biju Menon are actors to whom he can convey matters. Apart from being a co-worker, Sachy was a close friend of Prithviraj.

After the demise of Sachy, Prithviraj posted the director's photo on Facebook, with a caption 'gone'. On the day of his funeral, Prithviraj wrote a heartfeltly message for his friend on Facebook.

Prithviraj's Facebook post:

Sachy..
There has been a lot of messages. And the odd calls that I’ve attended. Asking me how I’m holding up. Consoling me. I guess people who know you and me..know us as well. But there’s one thing most of them told me that I had to silently refute. That you “Went on a high!”. As someone who knew all your ideas and dreams..I know Ayyappanum Koshiyum was not your “high”. It was the beginning that you always wanted. Your entire filmography was a journey to get to this point, from where you would unleash. I know.
So many untold stories. So many unfulfilled dreams. So many late night narrations on Watsapp voice messages. So many phone calls. We made this grand plan. For the years ahead. You and I. And then you left.
I don’t know if you have confided in anybody else on your vision for cinema and how you foresee your filmography to be in the coming years. But you have in me. And I know that the next 25 years of mainstream Malayalam cinema and the rest of my career would have looked a lot different if you were around. But forget cinema. I’d trade all of those dreams just to have you around. Just to get one of those voice notes again. Just for that next phone call. You used to tell me that we’re alike. We are. But I hope right now..you feel a lot different than I do. Because grief of this magnitude last hit me in another June, 23 years ago. It has been a privilege knowing you Sachy. A part of me went with you today. And remembering you from now on..will be remembering that part of me as well. Rest well brother...Rest well genius. See you on the other side. You still haven’t told me the climax to the sandalwood story.
