Jai (Santhosh) and Lekha (Reshmi Menon) get married after courtship and they stay in an individual house, that exists in the middle of a water body.
As Lekha gets pregnant, Jai leaves for Sri Lanka to bring her parents, so that they could take care of their daughter. But the conflict in the island nation forces Jai to stay there for four months.
He also learns that his in-laws are no more. On his way back to India, he finds Ajith (Rajendran), Shiva (Jeeva), Mani (Jagan) and Raj (Bharani) in the clutches of the Sri Lankan military.
He rescues them and bring them safely to India. As they enter Jai’s town, people there tell that Lekha is dead. But not ready to believe it, Jai goes to his house along with the four and finds Lekha welcoming them with a male baby.
However, eerie happenings in the place convince the friends that Lekha is long dead, and it is her ghost that they are interacting with. Now they decide to save Jai and rope in an exorcist (Kovai Sarala) for the purpose.
Directed by P Jawahar, Bayama Irukku is a film that is good in parts. The idea behind the movie- to thrill the audience and also to make them laugh even as conveying a message- is fine.
Performance by Santhosh and Reshmi Menon is good. The film has in its cast popular comedy acors including Kovai Sarala, Naan Kadavul Rajendran, Jeeva and Jagan. All of them have tried to deliver goods.
Music is by Sathya is one of the strengths of the movie, while the cinematography by Mahendran is another highlight. The scenes shot in Kerala deserve praise, especially.
The director has tried to mix love, friendship, comedy and horror in one film. But none of them has worked to the full extent. Also, with such a strong title, the film fails to scare us. At the same time, it has some positive elements too.
Rating: 2.75 out of 5
