Saamy is a 2003 Tamil film
starring Vikram and Trisha. The film is directed by Hari and
music was composed by Harris Jayaraj. This film was a hit of
the year and was a musical hit too. This film was later
remade into Telugu as Lakshmi Narasimha. Like other films
directed by Hari this film also specialises a particular
city and this time it is Tirunelveli.
Saamy along with Kaakka Kaakka started a new genre of police
and thief films in Tamil like Bheeshmar, Gambeeram, Anjaneya
and many others. But none of them could repeat the success
of Saamy and Kaakka Kaakka.
Arusaamy (Vikram) is a Deputy Commissioner of Police of
Tirunelveli who efficiently brings the city under control.
