It has become very common among the directors these days to prepare a story based on the image of a particular actor. Though they claim that they have prepared a tailor-made story keeping his style and body language in view, it finally comes out as a role which the hero had already played in his career. Gopichand gave hits like Ranam, Lakshyam and Okkadunnadu. Once again he comes out with a similar action flick through Sauryam. Another speciality is that Anushka is paired up with Gopichand for the second time in this flick, while popular cinematographer Siva has made his debut as director through this movie, besides providing story and screenplay.
