Published by: saranya on June 26, 2015
The very title of this film, quite an impressive and intriguing phrase in the world’s most renowned Tamil literature has been captivating us all. The precisely well crafted trailer with visually significant shots and Sathya Prabhas’ efficiently reveling impression caused some ignition to grab the show. The film finally comes to the theatres and we bring you exclusive analysis of this film.
Revealing more about the film’s synopsis could actually turn to be a spoiler and we have just few excerpts that actually form the basic premise. The film is based on a true incident that happens on a New Year eve, where a bunch of friends are relentlessly partying and a slip of tongue flares up a serious problem that will change their lives forever. The victim is protagonist (Aadhi) himself and what actually prompted the issues and how it’s gonna end is what the rest of this film is all about.
Instantly post-the show, there are certain things that retain in our senses – First one is about the magnificent performance of Bollywood icon Mithun Chakraborty. He is simply fantabulous as his expressions of eyes stand equivalent to 10 men performance. He never employs neither his body language nor many mannerisms, but throws up a compelling performance using his eyes. Secondly, the promising ensemble star-cast that includes Nikki Galrani, Kitty, Nasser, Shyam, Pasupathi and many more add up more intensity to the film.
What stands out as the spotlighting key element in the film is the non-linear narration by Sathya Prabhas. He has followed a unique method of storytelling that slightly brings forth an impression from maverick filmmaker Ram Gopal Varma. His inquisitiveness to showcase something different becomes his USP, but on the flip side, there are certain commercial elements, which look similar on the prototyped pattern. Say for instance, the hackneyed portrayal of parents, friends, romantic sequences laced with humour are nowhere different from many Telugu and Tamil movies. If Sathya had hired some proficient writers and consulted, this would have actually been something more unique. Aadhi delivers the crème de la crème performance on his part.
Nikki Galrani offers her stupendous potentials in keeping up the refreshing moments. In fact, her portions stand out to be something enjoyable in this suspense ridden tensed ambience.
There isn’t much to speak about the negative traits, but the second half actually turns out slightly sluggish and the penultimate to climax sequences are little lengthy as in most of the Telugu films.
Technically, the film is strong with brilliant cinematography and Sathya Prabhas’ narration gets more stupendous with the national award winning editor.
Overall, Yagavarayinum Naa Kaaka remains to be powerfully compelling with nuance performance and somewhere gets commercially addicted, which if avoided could have made it more driving.
Verdict: Taut and gripping in places
