Sajin Babu's second directorial venture 'Ayal Sassi' starring Sreenivasan hit theaters on July 7, 2017. The movie was a satirical take on contemporary Kerala and most viewers found it as an impressive attempt. But however, the movie received very little reception at the box office among other big movies like 'Tiyaan', 'Thondimuthalum Driksaashiyum' etc. According to the reports from trade sources, 'Ayal Sassi' could only manage a staggering 13 Lakhs on its opening day. Reportedly, the movie is on the brink of falling out of theaters in the coming days.
