Director Deepak Tirkey’s debut feature film Saathiyaa is a Sadri language love story.
Saathiyaa cast includes Swikaar Mundary and Jennifer Ekka in the lead. The rest of the cast includes Rajesh Tirkey, Subhash etc. Saathiyaa is about a Christian Adivasi boy, David (played by Swikaar Mundary) falls in love with a rich Hindu Adivasi girl Jia, (Jenny Ekka) whom he met at the marriage of a close friend of him. Though she also starts loving him after sometime, their religion and family backgrounds act as an obstacle between them.
Saathiyaa is backed by Sacred Groved Media and Centre Seat Production.
