Saamy Square Movie Review: A Failed Attempt In Making A Sequel
Saamy Square is the sequel to 2003 superhit film Saamy which stars Vikram in the lead role. 15 years later, the film released the sequel today.
Sequels have been a new trend in the Indian Film Industry, some tend to continue the stories of a particular film and some tend to make with the help of a different story. Making a sequel of a movie is like using the age-old recipe in your usual cooking sessions. Saamy Square comes in that category and it doesn't taste well. Some sequels have worked wonders like the Singam series but some despite their direction or acting seem stale they still manage to collect a lot of money in the box office. A sequel needs to have that punch which acts as a driving force in making it like a franchise.
The film continues its plot after 15 years where Aarusaamy (Vikram) is now happily married to Bhuvana (Aishwarya Rajesh replacing Trisha) and are blessed with a son Ramasaamy (Vikram again). Ravan Pichai (Bobby Simha), Pichai Perumal's son decides to take revenge against Aarusaamy for killing his father. This time Aarusaamy decides to take his father's legacy and decide to fight him and the cat and mouse game begins between tough and the powerful where anyone can be defeated. This seems like a same old story which most of us have been hearing for a very long time and it should be discontinued.
This film will torture you like anything and the worst part about it is that the memories of the original Saamy will be ruined because of this unintentionally funny film which most of us have been addicted to for years. However, some songs are pretty cool in this and there are some clean jokes which are just curated to make our boring weekend awesome with some laughs and smiles. Overall, the film seems to be a bore if you are planning to watch the film. Keerthy Suresh has also been the newest addition in the sequel and she is terribly wasted in this one with her clean joke. The villain should be menacing and this one looks like some B-grade film villain who is more than famous for his unintentional ROFL jokes which most of us have been used to in the 90s.
My best advice is to never watch this film ever again, this will ruin your watching experience of Saamy if you are a die-hard fan of Chiyaan Vikram. This film doesn't have that zing of Vikram which most of us have seen in films like I and Anniyan. A much better suggestion will be to watch Saamy on a boring weekend. That might prevent you from committing a mistake of watching this film.
