Director Hari came up with another cop drama Saamy in which Chiyaan Vikram and Keerthy Suresh are playing the lead roles.  15 years after the success of his Saamy, where Chiyaan Vikram essayed the popular no-nonsense cop Aarusaamy, the director Hari is back with Saamy Square/Saamy 2. Finally the film has hit the theaters today. Let’s see the story of Saamy .

Story: Ramasaamy( Vikram) is a police officer, who works as front office manager to a central minister (Prabhu). He comes in the contact of  Diya (Keerthy Suresh) and falls for her. Ramasaamy passes Civil Service Exam with first grades and opts for IPS. He gets his first posting in Vijayawada. Soon he comes to know about Raavana Pichai, son of Perumal Pichai, who’s more cold-blooded than his father.  His aim is to eliminate the Pichai brothers one by one. Will he be successful in this process? To get this answer, one should watch the movie on silver screen.

 Plus Points:

  • Vikram’s energetic performance
  • Keerthy Suresh
  • Action episodes

 Minus Points:

  • Screenplay
  • Story predictable
  • Tamil flavour

 Performance: Vikram has given noteworthy performance in the role of Ramasaamy.  He looks handsome and he fills the screen with his presence. He is terrific in action scenes. Though Keerthy Suresh gets limited screen presence but she has given her best and natural performance.  Bobby Simha as baddie looks menacing. Aishwarya Rajesh replaces Trisha Krishnan in the Saamy franchise and she tries her best to fit in. Prabhu performs well as central minister. All other actors did a fine job in their roles.

Technical: The story of Saamy is routine. The music by Devi Sri Prasad is good and is in tune with the proceedings.  The songs are thumpy. The background score though, is surprisingly good, and serves up the nostalgia of  original Saamy in goose-bumpy thumpiness.  The movie has endless series of slaps. The dialogues are meaningful. The cinematographers Priyan, Venkatesh Anguraj  did a fabulous job in setting the right mood for the action and romantic entertainer.  The editing by VT Vijayan, T. S. Jay are ok. Production values are alright.

 Analysis: Saamy is a mass masala movie, which has very interesting moments. The film has sufficient ingredients to make it work at box office! The Plus points are Chiyaan Vikram. If you ignore the routine story, the film will entertain you this weekend.
