Bayama Irukku (English: It's scary!) is a 2017 Indian Tamil horror comedy film written and directed by Jawahar. It is an unofficial remake of the Thai horror comedy blockbuster film "Pee Mak". The film features Santhosh Prathap and Reshmi Menon in the leading roles, with Kovai Sarala, Rajendran, Bharani, Jagan, and Lollu Sabha Jeeva in supporting roles. The film began production and was completed by late 2015, but delays meant that it had a theatrical release on 22 September 2017.



Directed by debutant Jawahar and starring Santhosh Prathap and Reshmi Menon, the film completely shot in late 2015 in the interiors of Kerala, Chennai and Nagercoil.[1][2] The horror comedy film, was said to feature Menon as a mother, while Rajendran and Kovai Sarala were also signed on for roles.[3]

After a period of inactivity, in August 2016, the producers promoted the film by trending the hashtag "PeisNext" (Ghost's next film) on Twitter, before re-revealing that the film would be called Bayama Irukku.[4][5] Following a further year of little promotion, the producers readied the film for a theatrical release in September 2017 and featured Bharani in the posters, following his popularity through his appearance in the Tamil reality television show, Bigg Boss.

The film had a low profile release at the box office on 22 September 2017, with critics giving the film negative reviews. A critic from The Times of India wrote "for a horror comedy, Bayama Irukku is short on both scares and laughs" and that "the predictable script hardly displays any inventiveness and is content to assume that anything that Rajendran does will make audiences laugh".[6] stated there was "not even a single interesting scene" and that the film "neither frightens you nor evokes any laughter".[7] Likewise, The New Indian Express wrote "Bayama Irruku doesn’t fall under either horror or comedy category as the film fails at both scaring you and making you laugh".[8]
