Star Cast

Arshath Khan, Ujjaini, Prajin, Akshay, Pinki

Debutant Arshad Khan?s Saa Boo Thri is a coming of age film. The story is about three friends in search of their identity, and their funny experiences. The film is too crass at times and mish mash of borrowed ideas and lacks nativity.

The film is borrowed from various coming of age films including scenes from Hollywood films like American Pie, You Got Mail and closer home Dil Chahta Hai, Socha Na Tha.

Three young men Keerthi (Prajan) an IT professional married to Jo (Sarah), Bala (Akshay) a rich guy who is in love with a TV anchor (Pinky), and Pal (director Arshad Khan) a student with a roving eye for ?aunties? live in the same area . They meet most of the time and discuss their love life.

Keerthi and Jo?s marriage is on the rocks due to their demanding work schedules and they end up chatting with strangers on the net leading to piquant situations. Bala does not find true love in the girl he loves and gets closer to the girl chosen by his parents.

Pal falls for a ?aunty? who runs away with her neighbour, leaving him stranded with a girl whom he does not like!

The trouble with the film is that there is no story to tell, it is just a few incidents strung together by a non happening script. Most of the scenes have been lifted from above mentioned films including dialogues. All the main characters seemed to be living in a la-la land, comfy in their designer outfits and posh houses.

The film lacks a true Tamil touch and offers little in terms of surprise or twists. The music is bad and the second half is repetitive and too long with a predictable climax, and all is well with the jolly good guys and girls.

Feel like you missed the party? Never mind, Saa Boo Thri is like just one more first timer trying to be different but ends up with egg on his face!

Verdict- Waste of time
