The movie is more expected. After the moderate success of his romantic film, Poo, Sasi began work on his next, an action entertainer, in late 2008 and worked on the script of the film for almost two years.
555 released on August 10th '13. It occupies Thalaivaa Screens.

THE TIMES OF INDIA
Sasi, who has so far made soft films like Sollamale and Poo, tries his hand at a commercial thriller with action, suspense, and of course, the inevitable romance. While the director's intent in giving us a fresh and different commercial film is evident, sadly, he doesn't manage to sidestep the genre's pitfalls.
The romantic track between Liyana and Arvind, however, is one of the elements the movie has going for it.
Roja Koottam, Dishyum and Poo, established Sasi as a director with mettle and prowess in story-telling. In Aindhu Aindhu Aindhu (555), he takes on action and suspense elements to weave a romantic tale.
The film’s long in the making does not in any way come in the manner it appeals to the audience.
Toting it up, Aindhu Aindhu Aindhu although coming much late, is a neatly done suspense-action drama woven on a romantic base.
Brilliant Bharath makes 555 a good enough watch.
Director Sasi, who has made few realistic films in the past, has made a hardcore action entertainer with romance and suspense, a new genre for him. Though his intentions are noble and Bharath has put in a lot of effort, the film is far from being watchable and fails to impress.
Bharath has put a lot of effort and hardwork to the role. His transformation from an cool dude to a one-man fighting machine is commendable, even though logic is put to the backburner.
He is one single reason to watch the film. Among the two girls Mrithika has a meaty role but her lip sync is bad.
Songs are the biggest speedbreakers in the film and they come at crucial places.
Firstly rounds of applause to Bharath and Sasi for making this film finally happen after tremendous delay. 555 is a cocktail of everything, however it’s best to be classified in the romantic thriller genre with a small dosage of fun as well.
Bharath is counting a big comeback through this film and will be sitting fingers crossed.
Alright, everything said and tested, was the publicity enough for this racy thriller? and will it catapult the box office good enough during Thalaivaa’s absence? A question to wait and watch as it was released rather in a hushed manner and might need some hefty promotion, as the makers would not want a good movie to die down that easy.
A neat romantic thriller, worth the watch!
