Movie Review: Bayama Irukku

RATING: 2/5

OVERVIEW: The movie opens with Jai (Santhosh) rescuing Ajith (Rajendran), Shiva (Jeeva), Mani (Jagan) and Raj (Bharani) from the Sri Lankan military and bringing them safely to India. We are told that Jai was in the island nation searching for his in-laws and had left his pregnant wife, Lekha (Reshmi) to look for them. He takes them to his house, which exists in the middle of a water body. They are welcomed by the Lekha, who has now delivered a male child. However, eerie happenings in the place convince the friends that Lekha is long dead, and it is her ghost that they are interacting with. They try to warn Jai and save him, but will it be too late for that? You will have to watch it in theatres.

REVIEW: Kovai Sarala and Mottai Rajendran, well now you can write the script yourself that is how predictable and boring this movie is. There are a lot of comedy actors as you would find in this genre and yet they make you wince than smile. The comedy templates get on our nerves and there is hardly any scene that would help you attempt a laugh. The film actually begins well with a little bit of confusion but sadly goes downhill after a few minutes.

Despite the presence of a lot of comedians they fail to make you laugh and not to blame the actors but they have been so typecast that and their comedies so flogged to death that none of the actors make an impression. Reshmi Menon is a misfit in her role.

Debut director Jawahar has tried to mix love, friendship, comedy and horror in one film but sadly, none of these powerful emotions worked out in favor of the film. People will not be afraid of VFX ghosts, the writing should’ve been strong and the performance should be top notch but Bayama Irukku is a below par film in terms of scripting department.

Sathya’s music is one positive aspect of the film and the locations in the river belts are another major highlight.Nice locations make the agony bearable and decent cinematography by Mahendran is a help.

Final Verdict of the film is there is no single intresting in the film and it wont scare the audiences.
