First time stepped out, after almost settled at the shifted house, to watch Yennai Arindhaal – an excellent Tamil action thriller film, from the director (Gautham Menon) who is popular with his cop subjects and this is supposed to be the conclusion of his cop trilogy. Ajith who wore the khaki shirt/cap this time, even though he’s seen almost in casuals, has recreated an image for himself and battled well parallel to Surya in Kaakha Kaakha and Kamal in Vettaiyaadu Vilaiyaadu.
Yennai Arindhaal is portrayed around the protagonist named Sathyadev and apt to the name (Sathya, which means truth), the character has consciously tried the best in establishing the same. Ajith comes in four different look and style, according to the phases of his character, has exhibited smart and intelligent to admire and also a person with intense while combat and gentle like wind when patting his loved ones.
Next to Ajith the most impressive was Arun Vijay’s performance, as anti-hero. He has acted more than dozen films as hero, but he couldn’t address well in industry rather being son of veteran actor, Yennai Arindhaal will lead him where he wants to be. Although his character and hairstyle reminds Pandian of Kaakha Kaakha, Arun’s hard work is bright enough.
Trisha comes as bold and beautiful, and allured, although portrayed a character of pretty young mother, her romance with Ajith look matured and rejuvenating at same despite their relationship that sounds odd and many couldn’t get what. I think the best and most exciting part of the film was the 2nd half from where I feel the real movie starts. The film kept moving at the rear was very interesting and engaged, even though the progress was predictable.
One of the blissful parts of the film was the music! Harris Jayaraj’s background score, as well the beautiful songs are caressing the heart as fascinating as cinematography, which hold some unique light presentation. Though the film was captured mostly under low light and many scenes composed in night, there’s something enrich in tone and light to cause thrill and admire. Like they say, last but not least, Gautham Menon’s way of filmmaking is something worth watch whatever the subject.
