Reportedly, he had a cardiac arrest after undergoing a total hip replacement surgery. The report also read that he was neurologically obtunded, a situation that refers to a state of less than full alertness. 

Sachy started off as a writer in Malayalam cinema. He initially collaborated with screenwriter Sethunath and the duo wrote hits like Chocolate, Robin Hood and Seniors. The duo split after the failure of the film Doubles at the box office. Sachy made his debut as a director with the film Anarkali starring Prithviraj. His last film as director was Ayyapanum Koshiyum which was a hit. The film starring Prithviraj and Biju Menon was released earlier this year. The film will be remade in Hindi by actor John Abraham as the producer. It will also be remade in Telugu with  Rana Daggubati and Ravi Teja reprising the role of Prithviraj and Biju Menon respectively. 

Several Malayalam film industry members took to social media to mourn the loss of Sachy.
