Chiyaan Vikram starrer Saamy Square which hit the screens on Friday (Sep 21) was one of the most awaited sequels in Kollywood. The film opened to negative reviews from both audience and critics alike. Saamy Square, a sequel to 2003 blockbuster film Saamy, has failed to live to the expectations of the original. Directed by Hari, Keerthy Suresh and Aishwarya Rajesh play the leading ladies. Devi Sri Prasad has scored the music.
The film has managed to do good business in its opening weekend despite mixed reviews. The film has collected Rs. 16 cr in its opening weekend in Tamil Nadu. Vikram starrer which collected Rs. 5.5 cr on its opening day is now the fifth highest grossing film this year in Kollywood.
