Story Details
A barber has a skirmish with a gangster on the road, and this encounter results in him running all over the city to save himself.         
Others Comment:
The film begins with Pichaimoorthy (Ram), a barber, being forced by his wife, Subathra (Poorna), to accompany her and their two kids, to meet her brother, Raghu, who has eloped with a girl. They need to get the two of them married before the girl's rich parents can stop it. However, en route, Pichai gets into a skirmish with Manga (Mysskin), a gangster who has to go to prison by that evening. An enraged Manga swears that he will chop off the former's limb by sundown. Can Pichai save himself? There has been a touch of the theatrical in Mysskin's characters, and in Savarakathi, he takes it up a notch by giving us characters who are way over the top. Aadithyaa understand this and never reins in his performers, who come up with suitably heightened performances that enhance the comic effect in the scenes. Ram convincingly shows us the haplessness of Pichai (he is a barber who still uses the knife and as a character remarks, still does hairstyle like Rayil Payanangalil Shankar) while Mysskin portrays Manga as someone who is both funny and terrifying because of how unpredictable he is. For Poorna, it is definitely her first challenging role in Tamil cinema, and the actress (who has dubbed for herself) is impressive as the dyspeptic wife with a hearing impairment.
