Yaamirukka Bayamey has managed to generate good hype around the movie with its promotinal materials. It is the first comedy-horror genre Tamil flick of the year and people are curiously looking forward for the film.
Kreshna, the younger brother of director Vishnuvardhan, Rupa Manjari, Oviya and Karunakaran are starring in Yaamirukka Bayamey. It is directed by newcomer Deekay and produced by Eldred Kumar on the banner RS Infotainment.
Tamil cinema audiences have always had a soft corner for horror comedies. The success of movies such as Chandramukhi and Kanchana prove this phenomenon. Now, Yaamirukka Bayamey looks to repeat this magic.
Kiran (Kreshna) gets to know that his late father has a sprawling mansion in a hilly area and he moves in there with his girlfriend Smitha (Roopa) to escape from his financial woes in the city.
Verdict - A surprise package which entertains the audience with its comedy - horror in a big way
The film is populated by eccentric characters caught in strange situations — like Kiran (Kreshna), a conman, who is pursued by a local don who has erectile dysfunction after popping a pill that Kiran sells.
Bottomline: Works in parts, weak in parts, but overall good time-pass.
Yaamirukka Bayamey is a horror comedy film that packs in everything that one expects from what the makers promised. The genre has not been explored so far in Tamil and there is something new about it.
On the whole Yaamirukka Bayamey is something different within the commercial format and provides potent dose of laughs to release the tension built up by the scares.
Verdict – Enough chills & comedy
Debutant director Deekay’s Yaamiruka Bayamey is essentially a horror comedy that can literally be broken down into two parts – one for horror and the other for comedy. The audience is treated to the humor element first as the film begins its proceedings.
Verdict: Horror that works to a larger extent with infrequent bursts of comedy.
