After much hype and expectations, Yaan was finally released on a thursday owing to a long weekend. So, what does the movie has to offer? Well, unfortunately the movie only has some visually stunning scenes and some thrilling chase sequences to boast about, but fails to entertain the audience, especially in the first half which is filled with the usual Hero running behind Heroine sequences which even leaves you with 'I've seen this before' kind of feeling making you restless and bored.
The second half however, keeps you hooked with some eye-catching
racy scenes which dissipate's slowly after being replaced by some
long, technically incorrect scenes which makes the audience to
laugh at the high-flawed sequences. For instance,it makes you feel
annoyed when Jiiva
travels to different places where he gets to meet Arabs and
Englishmen who speak inTamil. It gets worse when a character named
Malik speaks Tamil at his swearing-in ceremony in front of the Arab
Ravi K Chandran known for his camera
work fails to impress as a director with weak screenplay and some
awfully placed songs accompanied by long and dragging
sequences. Editor Sreekar Prasad should have done a much better job
in making the movie interesting but he too fails to deliver as
it makes you feel like the movie has some unwanted scenes and also
Harris Jayaraj has done a decent job
scoring well for the background music in the second half where the
movie gathers some pace. But he too fails to impress on the
whole as his songs, once again in the movie, makes you feel like
'I've heard that before'.
To round off things, Yaan is a typical Hollywood inspired Tamil movie with some brilliant camera work in which the visuals look slick but fails to impress one and all due to its poor writing which makes the movie logic-less and dull. So dull, that it conveniently overcomes the glossiness provided by the cinematography.
