Bayama Irukku - Not Scary At All.!


Bayama Irukku movie released today starring Santhosh Pratap in the lead role, and Reshmi Menon as the heroine opposite the actor. The film is a horror comedy genre directed and produced by Jawahar. The cast also includes Kovai Sarala and Mottai Rajendran. Music is composed by C.Satya and cinematography by Mahendran.



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.



For a horror comedy, Bayama Irukku is short on both scares and laughs. The predictable script hardly displays any inventiveness and is content to assume that anything that Rajendran does will make audiences laugh.

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.

As for the romance, it isn't really written convincingly, and the actors are quite bland to suggest that what they share is eternal love.

Sathya’s music is one positive aspect of the film and the locations in the river belts are another major highlight.








Same Old plot


Verdict : Not Scary At All.!

Stars : 1.5/5
