The Tamil crime-thriller helmed by director Ramkumar of Mundasupatti fame and bankrolled by G Dilli Babu‘s Axess Film Factory revolved around a serial killer on the hunt for young girls. Vishnu Vishal played a wannabe filmmaker who becomes a police officer and tries to solve the case based on his knowledge from films. Ratsasan had music by Ghibran, cinematography by PV Shankar, and editing by San Lokesh.
Producer G Dilli Babu honoured by the reception for the film says that the success belongs to every member of the team. “I embarked on my journey as a producer 3 years ago with a passion for creating the best movies. Accordingly, Ratsasan quenched this thirst by exceeding my expectations. Such perpetual rewards boost my confidence and push me towards producing and presenting more such quality films. I thank director Ramkumar, Vishnu Vishal, Amala Paul, PV Shankar, San Lokesh, Saravanan, Ghibran, and everyone in the crew.”
The rest of the team has also expressed their happiness on Twitter. They also thanked fans for the same.
