Naveena Saraswathi Sabatham Story

Naveena Saraswathi Sabatham movie concept is very much novel that it garners our attention from the very first scene where they show the ‘modern Kailayam’ with a ultramodern reception, Lord Muruga playing ‘Temple run’,Ganesha is trying to make himself fit by working out in treadmill and  icing on the cake is Shiva(Suba Panju) is working in front of ‘Apple ‘ desktop. Jai, Sathyan, VTV Ganehsh, Rajkumar – 4 buddies who travel to Bangkok for bachelor’s party 

Nivedha Thomas, plays charming girl character will be seen only in first segment (that too not for long) romance part with Jai. Jai’s traditional sex-medicine selling family. As Saraswathi Sabatham is all about Lord Shiva’s Thiruvilayadal here the tricky Thiruvilayadal appears to be a big boredom and audience finds it difficult to laugh for VTV Ganesh’s so called comedy act n the second half Bangkok island portions, the bad part is VTV Ganesh occupies the major portion of the second half. And what happens then & next is the plot.

Naveena Saraswathi Sabatham is an Tamil fantasy movie written and directed by K. Chandru. The film revolvs around four men, played by Jai, VTV Ganesh, Sathyan and Rajkumar. Niveda Thomas is paired opposite Jai. The film is being produced by Kalpathi S Aghoram . cinematography by J.Anand (associate of Nirav shah) and music by Prem Kumar.

Title controversy

The film was initially named Saraswathi Sabatham, reusing the title of the 1966 mythological film starring Sivaji Ganesan, and fans stated they would not allow the usage of titles of their idol for comedy films and that they would protest in front of Jai and Sathyan's houses, if the makers proceeded with the same title. Then on September 25, 2013, it was announced that the film had been retitled as Naveena Saraswathi Sabatham.
