Sawaari is a story revolving around psychopath killing. Well, let’s see how this less-touched attempt in Kollywood turns out to be.


A psychopath takes up hitch-hiking on a national highway. Eventually, he kills six persons in a continuous fashion. Benito, a cop, is being assigned the job of apprehending him. 
Benito Franklin is to be married to his ladylove Sanam Shetty. He travels on the same highway in his car. Unexpectedly, his car develops some trouble. In the meantime, the mechanic of a Tamil MLA, Arun, drives the lucky car of his boss in the highway, after getting it serviced. Benito resorts to hitch-hiking in the car. The psychopath also hitch-hikes the car. The “Sawaari” of these three people is the crux of the movie.

Star Performances

Benito comes up with a good act as the dignified police officer. He essays the predicament of a cop who is earnestly trying to catch the psychopath, with utmost conviction. T M Karthik shines in his role, and his character is etched in a good manner. Karthik Yogi also shows his acting prowess while Arun also does a good job. Sanam Shetty does what is required of her.


The director of the movie, Guhan Senniappan, has meticulously worked on the script for the movie. And he has also extracted good acting from the actors.

What’s there?

  • The first half is quite interesting.
  • The editing is reasonably good. 
  • The script is interspersed with sufficient thrills. 
  • Vishal Chandrasekhar’s background music is good. 

What’s not there?

  • Sometimes there is a dearth of logic in the movie. 
  • The cinematography could have been better. 


This sawaari is worth watching once.
