The movie is the Tamil remake of Telugu flick "Julai," which featured Allu Arjun and Ileana D'Cruz in the lead roles. The original version was a hit and fans expect the Tamil version to do well at the box office as well. 

The story of "Saahasam" is about a free-spirited guy who wanted to make quick bucks without working hard. He is a smart person and believes in his ability to be successful in his life. The story takes a twist when he meets a gangster who steals a large sum of money. The hero's concept on work and the duel between the gangster and the hero form rest of the story.

Kannan posted: #SaagasamEnraVeeracheyal - Thiagarajan's screenplay lacks punch & amateurish direction by debutant director Arunraj made it a tiring watch!
#Saagasam - Thaman's songs are nice, picturized and choreographed neatly but their placement doesn't help the proceeding of the film.
#Saahasam - Commercial action comedy that neither entertains nor gr8 in stunt sequences, decent plot but poor execution fails it! (5.5/10)

Priyanka tweeted: #Saahasam is all about the ego clash between the hero and the villain.
#Saahasam Prsahanth makes a decent comeback.
#Saahasam romantic portions b/w Prashanth and Amanda is stale
#Saahasam comedy scenes work at parts.
#Saahasam Shaji's camera work in apt so as Thaman's BGM
