Review roundup of "Yaamirukka Bayamey":
Saraswathi of Rediff: "There are plenty of exciting twists that keep you glued to the screen, alternately roaring with laughter or shutting your eyes in terror. A clever script, good all round performances along with excellent support from the technical team make Deekay's Yaamirukka Bayamey definitely worth a watch."
Sify: "Though the film delivers few scares in the second half, and there aren't any genuinely frightening moments. The idea like all Hollywood horror comedies is to inject a lot of comedy as characters caught in spooky situations provide the laughs. The climax scene is worked out well."
Nandita Ravi of Deccan Chronicle: "To give director Deekay his credit, he tries hard to deliver some thrilling moments in the film, and succeeds too. However the comedy dilutes the tension and seems to intentional and forced. The plot line seems to progress at a steady pace, keeping the viewer engaged and curious enough to stay on until the end. The climax sequence in particular has worked out well."
Behindwoods Review Board: "Even though the film has some moments that can give you the chills, it's easily subsided by the ludicrousness of the characters, which kind of makes the comedy steal the horror's thunder when it really feels like it should be the other way around."
Verdict: Worth a Watch
