Saamanyudu is an action drama directed by the debutant filmmaker, Thu Pa Saravanan. Having Vishal and Dimple Hayathi as the lead pair, the movie has hit the screens worldwide today. Let’s see how it is.


Raised in a middle-class family, Porus (Vishal) wishes to join the Police department. His father, who is also a cop, blindly follows the orders of his superiors and is afraid to go against rich people. Unfortunately, one day, someone kills Porus’ sister, Dwaraka (Raveena Ravi). Porus begins a search to find out the culprit. Who killed Dwaraka? How did Porus find the culprit? What is the link between a middle-class girl and a dreaded gang? Did Porus become a cop in the end? The answers will be known only if we watch the flick on the big screens.

Plus Points:

Usually, the audience expects high-octane and realistic action sequences in Vishal’s films. This film also has intense fighting scenes. Vishal’s performance is good and especially during the emotional scenes, he acted very well. Yogibabu’s character is hilarious and his comedy timing is phenomenal.

Dimple Hayathi’s role is okay. Raveena Ravi performed fine as a beloved sister to Vishal. The remaining actors delivered their best. Music by Yuvan Shankar Raja and the screenplay are the assets of the movie.

Minus Points:

Though the story and screenplay are good, the slow narrative will test your patience. The movie runs on a slow note in the first half and the same continues in the latter part. A racy screenplay would have made it an interesting movie.

The film has some unnecessary scenes in the first half. The major drawback of the movie is its runtime. Baburaj’s character should have been elevated with powerful scenes to make the audience a bit curious regarding the story.

Technical Aspects:

Director Thu Pa Saravanan penned the story of Saamanyudu. He succeeded in delivering a good concept but his narration is quite slow. The screenplay is decent as it starts on a slow note in the first half and is good in the second. Yuvan’s music, especially in fight sequences, is fantastic. Visuals by Kavin Raj are good. Editing by N.B. Srikanth should have been crispy.


On the whole, Saamanyudu is a slow-paced action drama with a decent concept. Vishal’s power-packed performance, Yogibabu’s comedy, and the suspense in the second half are basic assets. If you bear a few over-the-top scenes and the slow narration, you can give this action drama a shot this weekend. Rating: 2.75/5
