Saamy 2 or Saamy Square The sequel of the hit film Saamy that put director Hari into the limelight released this week with not much interest from the fans as the teaser and the trailer was not up to their expectations. The story starts with the flashback of the previous film and shows Aarusaamy (Vikram)now married to his lover is living a peaceful life. Mean while in Tirunelveli Perumal Pichai’s three sons come looking for their father from Srilanka. Led by the ruthless Ravana Pichai ( Bobby Simha) the eldest son they finally find out that Sammy has infant killed their father and has closed the case. They take over command of Tirunelveli and plan their revenge against Saamy. Cut to 28 years later the film moves forward to show young Raamasamy (Vikram) an aspiring young man who is studying civil service and want to become an IAS officer. How Raamasamy turns out to become a cop and how he cross s paths with Ravanna Pichai is the rest of the story.
I was eager and looking forward to this Sequel and still believed Director Hari would do justice ( even after seeing the Singam series). But only Vikram factor in the whole film was watchable. The story was predictable, loud and with an over dose of masala. Soori’s atrocities in the name of comedy was nauseous. Songs were dull and did not make any impact. Keerthi Suresh was ok but anyone could have played her character as it lacked strength. Bobby Simha too was ok as the character wasn’t exploited. the film lacked an equal character to that of the hero’s and that made the film weak. Though the first half was fast, it lacked pace in the second half. Saamy 2 gets only 3/10
