Movie review after a long time – Well, after 2 years. Though I never stopped watching movies, I never had the time to continue my movie reviews. As years pass, life changes and priorities also changes. So, had to concentrate on many other things. Now everything is in place and hence decided to start my movie reviews again. Well, here it is, I’m back with a bang with Yennai Arindhal.. A come back for me and thala!!!!
Directed by GVM, this movie is studded with stars like Trisha, Anushka, Arun Vijay, Ashish etc., A commercial hit by GVM after Vettaiyadu Vilaiyadu. I felt Kaakha Kaakha, VV and YA are interrelated. GVM also accepted it and said its a trilogy. Though, many people criticised and said it is just a mixture of his previous films, I felt the movie attracted the mass and the screenplay was good. They were able to hold the audience till the end with suspense.
Don’t worry, this will not be a spoiler for those who have not watched the movie yet. We all know “Thala” is a man of simplicity and he has showed that on screen as well. Arun Vijay’s hard work and the need to come up in film industry is shown in the movie. Especially his physique and acting in the climax shows he has transformed into a great actor.
Trisha suits well for that character and her beauty cannot be explained in words. Though Anushka, did not have a role to showcase her talent, she has done her part well.
BGM by Harris of course tops the list and songs are the first attracting feature in this movie. Though thala has done an awesome job, songs and Arun Vijay outshine him.
Hats off to GVM to take a very important issue and mix it with such a story. The transformation from one direction to another after intermission is worth appreaciating. Usually, it is very difficult for script writers/directors to change the movie track and still link it with the start. But, here GVM has done it really well and till the end he made sure the link was never broken.
It won’t be good if the small girl’s performance is not appreciated, as she has done a great job. Especially her acting in few scenes like when she accepts Trisha and Ajith’s wedding, when she asks Ajith to re-start his police career, have to be appreciated.
Overall, I would say it is a very good movie and it is a great come back for Thala, Arun Vijay and GVM.
