Yeidhavan - Good Plot Spoiled by Commercial Screenplay!


Yeidhavan is the latest Tamil action crime drama film that deals with issues such as educational and the crime, money laundering around the world. The film is written and directed by Sakthi Rajasekaran and produced by Sudhakaran. The film stars Kalaiyarasan and Satna Titus in the leading roles and features music composed by newcomer, Paartav Barggo. 



Krishna (Kalaiyarasan) takes revenge on two middlemen and Gaurav (Saretheran), head of a private medical institution, who shattered the dream of his sister to become a doctor. In the process of taking revenge, our hero meets a gangster Dharma, who is also looking for the right time to murder Gaurav. Krishna also learns that Dharma is the one, who actually killed his sister in a car accident. How Krishna sketches a clever plan to kill all his foes forms the crux of the story. 



Kalaiyarasan is adequate for the angry young man role but to carry the film single-handedly, the actor should improve his energy level. Though Satna Titus plays a cop, there is no big score for the actress in the film. Debutant Gowtham brings the Richman’s attitude with his body language and is equally menacing as the villain. Krishna as Dharman gives a neat performance while Aadukalam Naren as Karna, the ManFriday of Gowtham makes his presence felt. Vela Ramamoorthy comes for just a few scenes in the first half and we get the feel that the talented performer could have been used more. 

The characters are named Krishna, Dharman, Sarathy – they stand for something loftier, more epic than their lives would have us imagine. And the staging is done with care. Split screens are used not just as a gimmick to spruce up the visuals but as a storytelling device, to show multiple levels of action. The cinematographer is C. Prem Kumar has done a good job. Debutant Paartav Baargo does a below par job with his rerecording and the songs are also not catchy. 

The movie clearly has a great plot. But one could not help feeling that given its engaging plot and the clever ideas in constructing the script, the film could have been more than just appealing. It could have been racier and even engrossing, if the director had avoided some dull elements such as songs that religiously follow the format of a commercial film (A duet and an item number).
