“Yentha Vaadu Ganie is a fine effort that brings the best of Arun Vijay & Ajith, also being a perfect ending to the director's cop trilogy.”
Gautham Menon is back with yet another cop flick, if that’s what I can call the series of the subject around which he makes movies. This time it’s a smouldering Ajith as Sathyadev, many similarities with Surya’s Anbuselvan in Kakha Kakha but yes we’ve got to move on.
Sathyadev (Ajith) is the invincible police officer who decides to take on the profession because of a past trauma. He chooses to become a cop and while at his work he meets Hemanika (Trisha) a dancer and a single mother whom he courts and decides to marry. Hemanika is murdered before the day of their wedding. Sathyadevan now has more reasons to decide between being a dutiful cop and to step on the wrong side to avenge the death of his loved ones. He takes Hemanika’s daughter and goes places in order to maintain a normal life away from all the scars, least knowing the scars of his past are within him.
Sathyadev comes back to adorn his khaki sattai and plunges deep into an illegal organ harvesting scam. Its in the depths of these tangles that he meets Anushka (Themozhi) a software engineer who needs to be averted from a crisis. What is bound to happen to Thenmozhi? What are the conflicts Sathyadevan is battling? are what makes the rest of the story.
Brilliant performances by Ajith, Arun Vijay, Parvathy Nair and Isha. I wish the ladies has more to do in terms of acting. Trisha’s looks just absorbs all eyes the moment she is on screen. Anushka’s performance is good but her looks could have been tended to. Ajith’s looks are just drop dead hot, salt and pepper never looked better in Indian movies. Gautham Menon’s subjects, characters and their portrayal were good but a change in subject the next time would help. The movies drags a bit post interval but its a bearable flaw.
