Earlier, Leelavathi has produced two Kannada movies like Kannadada Kanda and Shukra. Kannadada Kanda did well at the Box Office and it ran for 100 days. Although Shukra was also a good movie, it failed at the Box office. Now, Leelavathi has come up with another movie called Yaaradu (Yaradu, Yaaradhu), which features her son Vinod Raj in lead role.
The movie Yaaradu is a suspense thriller movie. The movie has a fresh story line with good narration. Director Shrinivas Kaushik has weaved the movie in a wonderful way by using all possible elements like sounds of doors opening and closing, rustling of dry leaves and eerie silence to make it a creepy.
The first half is full of thrills with its fast paced narration. But immediately after the interval the movie takes serious and slow pace. The second half tests the patience of the audiences. The director could have done little more homework to make the movie more interesting in the second half.
