Yatchan : Movie Review

DIRECTOR: Vishnuvardhan , ACTORS: Arya, Kreshna, Deepa Sannidhi, Swathi Reddy,
Kishore, Y. G. Mahendra, Adil Hussian, Harish Uttaman, John Vijay,Thambi Ramiah, Azhagam Perumal, Ponvannan, M.S.Baskar and S.J.Suryah in a guest appearance , Run time : 147 minutes

It's based on the novel of the same name, Vishnuvardhan has co-written the screenplay of this reasonably well-made entertainer laced with romance and action. Arya seems to be the lucky mascot of Vishnuvardhan ever since the latter's debut vehicle, Arindhum Ariyamalum in which the actor had played a crucial role that won him acclaims. Well, the lucky combination seems to have worked out well here as well with Arya going about his character with practiced ease under the baton of Vishnu who seems to know to get the best out of the actor. This flick is a significant outing for Arya, especially after the dismal show of his recent release, VSOP (Vasuvum Saravananum Onna Padichavanga) at the box-office, the film produced by Arya himself.

Kreshna, Vishnu's younger sibling, gets a good break here and can certainly take credit for his presence and performance. Adhil Hussian makes his Tamil debut here in a dual role as look-alike brothers, but only cuts a sorry figure.

Chinna, (Arya) a small-time crook and an ardent fan of actor Ajith, kills a guy inadvertently and he is forced to flee from Tuticorin to Chennai. Karthick (Kreshna), a wannabe actor, lands up in Chennai, at the instance of his girl-friend Deepa (Swathi Reddy) almost the same time. Vetri and Selvam (Adhil Hussian) are looke-alike brothers and latter kills the former for political reasons, on finding Swetha (Deepa Sannidhi) a nurse, as a stumbling block, he orders to eliminate her. As Chinna happens to be at the wrong place, at the wrong time, he is assigned with the task.

Chinna and Karthick happen to switch places owing to force of circumstances leading to a lot of more chaotic and less hilarious situations. A little more complicated climate clears it all. Vishnuvardhan could have been more prudent with the screenplay as the film lacks his touch that was highly evident in his previous film 'Arindhum Ariyamalum'.

The commendable camera work of Omprakash and the slick editing of Sreekar Prasad have both lent credibility to the proceedings as well as the rocking background score of Yuvan.
