Prashanth is back with "Saahasam" or "Saagasam." The action-comedy directed by Arun Raj Varma hit the screens on Friday, 5 February.
Newcomer Amanda plays the female lead in "Saahasam," which also has Nassar, Thambi Ramaiah, Vamsi Krishna, MS Bhaskar, Nalini, Robo Shankar and others in the cast. It has S Thaman's music, Shaji Kumar's cinematography and Zashi Omer's editing.
The movie is the Tamil remake of Telugu flick "Julai," which featured Allu Arjun and Ileana D'Cruz in the lead roles. The original version was a hit and fans expect the Tamil version to do well at the box office as well.
The story of "Saahasam" is about a free-spirited guy who wanted to make quick bucks without working hard. He is a smart person and believes in his ability to be successful in his life. The story takes a twist when he meets a gangster who steals a large sum of money. The hero's concept on work and the duel between the gangster and the hero form rest of the story.

Kannan posted: #SaagasamEnraVeeracheyal - Thiagarajan's screenplay lacks punch & amateurish direction by debutant director Arunraj made it a tiring watch!
#Saagasam - Thaman's songs are nice, picturized and choreographed neatly but their placement doesn't help the proceeding of the film.
#Saahasam - Commercial action comedy that neither entertains nor gr8 in stunt sequences, decent plot but poor execution fails it! (5.5/10)
Priyanka tweeted: #Saahasam is all about the ego clash between the hero and the villain.
#Saahasam Prsahanth makes a decent comeback.
#Saahasam romantic portions b/w Prashanth and Amanda is stale
#Saahasam comedy scenes work at parts.
#Saahasam Shaji's camera work in apt so as Thaman's BGM
