Yagavarayinum Naa Kaakka (aka) Yagavarayinum Naa Kakka is a Tamil movie directed by Sathya Prabhas Pinisetty starring his brother Aadhi and Nikki Galrani. It is a bilingual film shot in both Tamil and Telugu.
Pasupathy, Richa Pallod and Mithun Chakraborty in his first appearance in a South Indian language film, play supporting roles.
Yagavarayinum Naa Kaakka is based on a real incident happened in Chennai. It is the story of a happy go lucky man and the shocking incident that turns his life upside down and his search for Mumbai based underworld don Mudaliar.
One night of madness by these friends lead to troubles. What happens next? To be watched on big screen.
The film has got too much to tell, but the intention has its perks. When the friction of the tongue can create words, it can also lead to unforeseen, unexpected and disastrous events, which is what YNK deals with.
With nothing much to complain, the director capitalizes on the non-linear narration to accentuate the story with acceptable twists, but the foreplay takes long time before hitting the g-spot of the screenplay. Extra attention to the clichés and the cinematic liberties would have made YNK a little better than what it is.
Credits to the harmony between the director and the national award winning editor Sabu Joseph, the film doesn't become a confused cluster of scenes, but a neatly arranged and grippingly packed (to an extent) film except for few dips and turns.
On the whole, this film is like having a grand buffet lunch where all the dishes looks delicious and tempting but ultimately is tasteless and bland. Sathya Prabhas is heavily inspired by classics like Mounaragam, Nayakan, and Naadodigal.
The story offers little by way of freshness or originality, instead piling up the cliches and reinforcing lazy stereotypes which lacks tension or thrills.
Although peppered with good actors like Pasupathy, Narain, Nassar and above all Mithun Chakravarthy, the film gives them little to do, leaving the bulk of heavy lifting to Aadhi who plays Saga and thankfully he doesn't disappoint.
"Yagavarayinum Naa Kaaka" is capable debut feature from Sathya Prabhas Pinisetty. Though the film lacks synergy, which is also teh central concern for me, it is deftly handled in parts with good directorial skills.
"Yagavarayimum Naa Kaaka, surely, is a film that could be easily broken down into parts.
