Ram Samy (Vikram) is an aspiring IAS officer who works as manager to a Central Minister (Prabhu) in Delhi. He was raised by his grand parents (Delhi Ganesh and Sumithra) who maintain his birth as secret without even showing his parents’ photo to him.
One day, Ram Saamy sees a rogue disrespecting a police officer. He turns violent and later chooses to become an IPS officer. Only at this point, Ram comes to know about his past.
He is the son of Aaru Saamy (Vikram), a tough police officer in Tirunelveli who ws killed by the sons of Perumal Pichai. The sons of Perumal Pichai including Raavana Pichai (Bobby Simha) now rule the southern town.
To put an end to their atrocities and to avenge his father’s death, Ram comes to Tirunelveli on duty. The rest is all about the cat and mouse game between Ram and Raavan.
If you keep your expectations high having in mind Saamy and go to theatre to watch Saamy Square, you will get disappointed. But if you look for a normal cop story, you may not be in for disappointment.
Saamy Square is a typical Hari film with loud dialogues and BGM, fast-paced camera angles and cuts, low-brow comedy (Saamy and Tamizh are exceptions, however) and high voltage action scenes.
Vikram is the single and solid pillar of support of Saamy Square, as the actor is menacing as police officer. Both Keerthy Suresh and Aishwarya Rajesh (who replaces Trisha) have been wasted.
Soori’s comedy tracks hardly tickle the funny bone, while the villains including Bobby Simha, OAK Sundar and John Vijay are loud and lack the perfectness and finesse of Kota Srinivasa Rao.
Devi Sri Prasad’s songs are average, while his background score is loud to the core. There are certain scenes which are smart and the connecting points between the first part and the sequel are interesting.
Saamy Square, on the whole, is a typical revenge action entertainer with great production values. A solid script could have helped the film better.
