Yaamirukka Bayamey - A Hilarious Horror


Happened to watch this movie over the weekend. Yaamirukka Bayamey is a Tamil horror comedy film, written and directed by debutant Deekay, casting Kreshna, Rupa Manjari, Karuna, and Oviya. I thoroughly enjoyed the plot and dialogues.

The movie started-off so draggy and  boring, but soon picked the pace and put me completely in surprise. It’s is a well-executed horror comedy that revolves around just 4-5 characters and their hilarious attempts to run a guesthouse at a haunted building. The Hero – a fraudster (Krishna) escapes from a local don in Chennai and comes to this haunted house in Kolliyur with his girlfriend.

As per his manager (Karuna) advise, they decide to renovate the building and make it as a guest house. But interestingly, all the guests who come to stay there start dying. What's the mystery behind the whole thing?

Nothing is taken seriously or allowed to get too serious. Any normal horror movie with such story/script could have very well ended up as a flop. But somehow Yaamirukka Bayamey manages to keep us amused. Whenever we expect a supernatural reason behind the haunting events, the movie gives-out a sneaky and funny explanation. There are plenty of exciting twists that keep us glued.

All the lead actors have performed remarkably. A large part of the credit should go to Karuna, and Mayilsamy's cameo role towards the end of the film. I am not good in analyzing the technicals of a horror movie, so leaving it unwritten.

A clever script with good all round performances make Yaamirukka Bayamey definitely worth a watch.

Btw, am wondering why should all the horror movies revolve around a Haunted House? Can’t our directors find any other better plots? Have seen enough of haunted house in Tamil cinemas :D
