Attempting to remake a blockbuster with naxefve cast is one of the big downfalls of â€œSattam Oru Iruttaraiâ€, a film that screams boredom. The original version of the film was a super hit because it was originally made some 25 year ago and since back then may be this storyline worked but sadly, it doesn't anymore. Our debutant director Sneha Britto, who unfortunately doesn't even understand the grammar of film-making, should get this thought into her thick skull.
Thaman Kumar, our hero, wants to avenge the killers of his girlfriend, Piaa. Reema Sen, who plays a righteous police officer and brother to Thaman, wants to catch her brother with evidence. In this game of cat and mouse, who catches who forms the rest of the story?
Neither does the film engage or arouse interest at any given point in its running time. The plot takes its own course before finally arriving at what it intends to deliver, which by the way is mundane. There's hardly any time spent on developing the character. It appears as though some characters were forcibly pushed into the film.
The only change in the plot is that while in the original version, the hero takes revenge on the killers of his parents, but here focuses all his energy on avenging the killers of his lover. I wonder why actresses like Piaa, Bindhu and Reema would even think of signing such a soulless, especially, Piaa and Reema, who are basking in the success of â€œKoâ€ and â€œGOWâ€.
While the crux of the film is based on the relationship between Piaa and Thaman, sadly, the relationship doesn't quite impress us into believing that this part of the film is very important. Comedy involving Tamil television actors appears corny and hardly even succeeds in capturing the attention of the audience. Cameo by S.A Chandrasekhar as the law-bearer is worthless while casting, which was supposed to be very important for the film, fumbles big time.
SOI is one of the worst Tamil films of 2012.
