Saravanan (Udhayanidhi Stalin) is a carefree youth in a rural area whose only job is to spend time with his friends. His uncle Kalyanam (Soori) is a political leader.
When Kalyanam gets into trouble, Saravanan comes to his rescue and help him escape to abroad. Eventually, Saravanan becomes the leader of the party.
In the meantime, he has a childhood friend in the form of Thenmozhi (Regina). Though they share a love-hate relationship, there is romance between them.
After some time, Kalyanam returns to the native, but is shocked to see the popularity of Saravanan. He now hatches a plan to separate Saravanan and Thenmozhi. But posing hurdles to his plans is the ghost of Fathima (Shrusti Dange).
Trust Ezhil to come up with simple entertainers laced with humour and commercial elements. The Manamkothi Paravai, Desingu Raja and Velainu Vandhutta Vellaikaran maker has relied on his tested formula in Saravanan Irukka Bayamen too.
The film is a comedy caper that tickles our funny bone with a wafer-thin storyline. It seems it’s time that Ezhil tries something new, as we are so used to his style of films.
After a couple of serious outings in Manithan and Gethu, Udhayanidhi is back to his comfort zone- comedy- and has done well. Regina gels well as a village belle, while Shrusti Dange performs well in a small role.
Suri’s character makes us laugh despite irritating in some scenes. The show stealer is Yogi Babu, while Ravi Maria and Robo Shankar do routine characters.
D Imman has composed tunes for some peppy numbers. K G Venkatesh has handled the camera. Despite its cliches, Saravanan Irukka Bayamen is a light-hearted fare that solely aims to bring a smile on the face of the audience.
