Bayam Ariyaan Movie review
Bayam Ariyaan narrates the different happenings in the lives of five vagabonds. The plot revolves around a police officer who uses a group of youngsters for illegal activities.
Vinod aka Koni (Mahesh Raja) along with his four friends (including Boys Manikandan) thrives on theft, robbery and occasional murders. Mitran (Kishore), a police officer, supports the five in all their activities. Vinod‘s mother Saraswathi (Saranya) who works as a servant maid, is always worried about her son‘s troubled life. One fine day, Vinod and his gang attack Ponnambalam (a dreadful don) to loot his money. This results in the boys getting into trouble with Ponnambalam‘s men who are hellbent on finding their boss‘ attackers.
Meanwhile Vinod falls in love with Niveditha (Udayathara), a college student. More trouble brews when due to infighting in the gang, Manikandan breaks away from Vinod and forms a separate gang. Incidents build up in such a way that Saraswathi gets killed in a gang clash in which Vinod is involved. At this point, Vinod realizes the love for his mother. Meantime, a drastic change occurs in Mitran‘s life and he decides to kill Vinod and Manikandan in an encounter. What happens next forms the climax of the story!
Debutant director Prathish has tried to take a different path from the regular masala flick but fails to impress. The dragging screenplay and unwanted glamour scenes seem to be the main culprit. The director could have concentrated more on the story to make it more interesting. Debutant Mahesh Raja has done a pretty good job but has a long way to go. Udayathara, Kishore, Saranya and Ponnambalam have done their parts well. The rest of the cast is adequate. The film needs trimming to increase the pace.
The biggest highlight of the film is its music, especially the ‘Amma Nee Irundaal‘ song rendered by K.J. Yesudas. Interestingly the title track ‘Se Mo Pe Saamayo‘ has no words; debutant music director P.C. Shivan has used some meaningless words throughout the song. Editing by Gopi could have been crisper.
The events that unfold in the movie are predictable and cliched. Had the director opted for novelty in narration, Bayam Ariyaan would have been better fare.Bayam Ariyaan Photo Gallery
