Saamy Square review: A crowd-pleaser that knows exactly who its audience is
A watchable revenge action entertainer
Critic's Rating: 3/5

Vikram, Keerthy, Bobby, Soori
The House with a Clock in Its Walls review: A clunky and familiar tale | Varathan review: Entertaining and relevant | Manto review: A moving biopic, astutely told | Ishqeria review: An out-dated, poorly written love story | Pakhi review: Amateurishly crafted and tedious to watch
Cut to the present: Ramasamy (Vikram) is an aspiring civil service student who lives in Delhi and works as manager to a Central Minister (Prabhu Ganesan). Ramasamy's grandparents has raised him as a soft natured, nice guy without letting him know about his parents death or even showing their real photo (!!!) But when a rogue disrespects a cop, our hero turns violent and later Ramasamy chooses to become an IPS for some unknown reason. Understanding the Khaki connect, Ramasamy's granddad (Delhi Ganesh) tells him how his dad Aarusamy and mother Bhuvana (Aishwarya Rajesh) were brutally murdered by Raavanan and his brothers. Now, it's pay back time for the cop, as he reaches Tirunelveli to settle scores.

#SaamySquare One of the Worst film in Vikram & Hari's carrier...a Film to forget
Vj Dinesh @logindinesh05:
#SaamySquare #SaamySquareReview 2nd half : Dual role of #Vikram made extraordinary screen presence but compared to #Saamy 1st this part could have been made better . Soori comedy is the biggest speed breaker . Overall watchable for #ChiyaanVikram

#SaamySquare is a proper sequel
First half is unlike a #Hari film. The story gets explained and now it's time for the hunt to begin

#SaamySquare - Soori is the speed break. Otherwise - Thalaivar Hari is back with a bang!!!! Story line and screenplay, Bobby Simhaas performance and the BGM for him. Oor side audience are going to love this!!!
#SaamySquare Interval: Good going. Hari pins us into the film with his old-fashioned yet engaging screenplay, the comic track is the only big hurdle. #ChiyaanVikram takes it by the horn with an amazing screen presence!
Congrats to #SaamySquare team for delivering a pakka commercial entertainer...
#Vikram n #Hari combo gets back the mojo again...
Good music n BGM by #DSP...

#SaamySquare [3/5] : Delhi backdrop in the 1st Half is a fresh idea..
Dir #Hari's trademark all over..
U can watch it for #ChiyaanVikram and the nostalgic #Aarusaamy character and whenever #Ramasaamy brings back his inner #Aarusaamy

#SaamySquare 1st half - The MASS interval block gives fuel for the 2nd half and makes us sit up.. Action shifts to Tirunelveli.. #ChiyaanVikram to take charge..

#SaamySquare #Saamy2 Director Hari has not made any compromises to his usual style of template cop movie. But, he couldn’t engage the audience with faster screenplay this time. He has taken almost the whole first half to relate story & Characterisation with part 1.
