Churning out back to back comedy capers, director Ezhil has his latest outing ‘Saravanan Irukka Bayamaen’ hitting screens today. The film stars Udhayanidhi Stalin, Regina Cassandra and Srushti Dange alongside Soori in lead roles. Let us have a look on how this film works out?


Udhayanidhi Stalin plays a happy go lucky youngster, who has no worries and commitments in life. He is madly in love with his cousin girl Regina Cassandra, but she doesn’t want a relationship with him due to his below average studies and unemployed nature. Adding more to Udhayanidhi’s trouble is his forsaken uncle Soori. He attempts to ruin their relationship as Udhayanidhi became the only reason for him to be banished to Dubai to ride Camel. Soori hatches up plans to get his friend Chaams to get married to Regina. On the other end, the ghost of Srushti Dange, who was once in love with Udhayanidhi Stalin come to help in winning the heart of Regina and thwarting the plans of Soori.


Director Ezhil has crafted the screenplay without any logical quotients and it is completely evident throughout the movie that his motto is to tickle the funny bones of audiences unconditionally. Of course, his erstwhile movies had the same scenario and formulae to attract the audiences, but this one remains to be doubtful on the audiences’ reception. There are lots of comedy actors in the film, but there is scarcity of laughter episodes. Except few sequences involving Soori and Yogi Babu, nothing really gets our funny bones tickled.

It is noteworthy that Ezhil has managed to sketch substantial characterizations for Udhayanidhi Stalin, Regina Cassandra, Srushti Dange, Soori, Yogi Babu and Mansoor Ali Khan. Whereas the roles cast upon Manobala, Robo Shankar, Ravi Mariah, Chaams and Livingston remain vague and directionless. Because of flimsy moments involving the latter league of actors, the film looks dragging in spite of a shorter duration of 2 hours. Nevertheless, the background score and songs by D Imman stands out to be a strong support. K.G. Venkatesh has done a neat job involving the cinematography, especially in the songs.


It is so much evident that Udhayanidhi Stalin has improvised a lot on his acting and dancing skills. Regina Cassandra gives a beautiful appearance and screen presence with neat performances. Although, Srushti Dange gets a very miniscule appearance during flashback, she manages to capture our attention. It’s a stereotypical show from Soori, who keeps blabbering throughout the film and the other actors – Mansoor Ali Khan, Yogi Babu, Chaams, Robo Shankar, Ravi Mariah, Livingston and Rajashekar have given their best.

What works?

1. Comedy episodes of Soori and Yogi Babu
2. Regina Cassandra
3. Cinematography and Music

What doesn’t work?

1. Screenplay
2. Logical quotients in screenplay missing.
3. Intentionally inserted misfit comedy tracks

Overall, if audiences prefer this movie in accordance to the erstwhile comedy films of Ezhil like Vellaikaara Durai and Velainu Vandhutta Vellaikaaran, there are chances to get disappointed. But if it’s all about entertainment and time pass for couple of hours that you’re looking out for, then Saravanan Irukka Bayamaen could be a better option to catch up for.

Verdict : One more comedy caper with strict ‘Ezhil’ formulae.

Rating : 3.5/10
