Saamy Square Review

Saamy Square features quite a few mass sequences and hard-hitting dialogues. They really do not offer anything fresh. However, they are bound to click with the target audience and enhance the film's mass appeal.

Saamy Square is beyond any doubt a Vikram show all the way. He does full justice to the Aarusaamy character and proves that he has 'still got it'. Similarly, he has done a splendid job as the son Ramasaamy.

Saamy Square makes for a decent watch, however, it fails to match the high standards set by Saamy.

Hari is known for engaging the audience with elemental features in the screenplay throughout his career. However in Saamy Square, he fails to take the story forward with the usual vigour he is known for, in the first half.

Verdict: Hari’s unvarying template that works better in parts in the second half - Try it for Vintage Saamy Vikram

Aarusaamy himself was refreshing - a cop who was not just brain and brawn, but also emotional. You had sub-plots and characters to reinforce this. But here, Ram Saamy comes across like a Duraisingam who doesn't scream every word he utters. Even the name lacks the mass factor of the former.

And we get underwritten characters, a villain who fumes and plots but never acts, unintentionally hilarious mass moments.
