15 years after Saamy, its sequel, Saamy Square, arrived in theaters today. Chiyaan Vikram plays dual roles (father Aarusaamy and son Raamsaamy) in the film, reuniting with director Hari, 14 years after Arul. Aishwarya Rajesh features in an extended cameo, taking over Trisha's role from the first part, while Keerthy Suresh is the leading lady paired with the younger Vikram.
Plot: While the first part was about the face-off between Aarusaamy and Perumaal Pitchai, the second pits their sons (Raamsaamy and Raavana Pitchai) against each other. Raavana Pitchai has two elder brothers, making it tougher for the hero. The film is a typical Hari-styled loud, over-the-top, unabashed 'cop vs. villains' story with a personal revenge angle. We also get some supernatural elements to add more power and rage to Raamsaamy's character.
Final Word: Watch Saamy Square just for Chiyaan Vikram. It pales in comparison to the first part in every aspect, but on a standalone basis, it's a middling cop action entertainer.
