Comedy capers have always attracted the audience, only if the content is fresh, characters are funny and scenes are scintillating. Sabash Sariyana Potti, a film directed by television actor Venu Aravind, is half-successful in all the above three categories.
A film that talks about the relationship between an actor and his fan, Sabash Sariyana Potti, with Jayaram in the lead role, tries to live up to the title. But lack of cogency between scenes and loopholes in the script take away the sheen.
However, these things don't stop Venu Aravind from taking the credit. It is a decent directorial debut, we must say, though the film entertains us only to a certain extent.
Gnanaguru (Sriram Karthik) is a happy-go-lucky youngster, who lives in Vadipatti. He is an ardent fan of actor JR (Jayaram). One day, JR comes to their place and Gnanaguru impresses him with his mimicry still.
JR, who is mightily impressed, asks Gnanaguru to come to Chennai and to try his luck in cinema. But only after coming to the city, Gnanaguru comes to know about the real face of JR.
There is a straight contrast between on-screen JR and off-screen JR. Now, Gnanaguru wants to show the matinee idol's real face to the world and what starts is a cat and mouse game.
Jayaram is at his best while Sriram Karthik makes a good debut. Others in the cast, including Anjana Thamburati, Delhi Ganesh and Vaiapuri, have played their characters well.
Thaman's music is okay. To sum it up, Sabash Sariyana Potti is a winning game in the first innings and losing in the second innings. One can watch the film if there is some time to kill.
