According to Vishal, "Satyam has been cut short by 22 minutes to make it crisper. "Everybody felt it was too lengthy in the first half particularly a song and some comedy scenes involving Nayantara and Senthil. So we decided to shorten it. I think the film is now more cute and crisp."
The comedy scenes of Nayantara, the children and Premji (runs for 7 mins!) have also been deleted. Plus the long drawn out fight scene centered around the ice-factory has been shortened as well.
