Comedy films in the current year have done remarkably well at the Box Office in Tamil film industry. This has paved way for many filmmakers to make films on the same genre in a quick time. Now, yet another movie has hit the screens which is billed as a rib-tickling flick. Mirchi Shiva and Santhanam had a couple of releases in 2013 and have tasted huge success. Now, they have teamed up for Ya Ya.
The Tamil flick is directed by I Rajasekaran, a former associate of M Rajesh. Like his guru, he has taken up a fun-filled script. Will he get success like his mentor in this genre? Can Ya Ya become yet another hit in comedy genre in 2013? What the film has to offer? Find it in the review...
Ya Ya is a film directed by newcomer I. Rajasekaran and will mark the third release of the year for RJ turned actor Shiva who has a fourth one coming up next month. The film is expectedly a simple minded comedy about love and friendship.
Vijay Ebenezer’s songs make namesake appearances on the screen but Vetri’s camerawork is adept and presents moments that are good on the eye. T.S. Suresh’s editing is crisp and neat.
Verdict: Typical Shiva brand of comedy which has its share of hits and misses.
The film revolves around two characters named Dhoni (Shiva) and Sehwag (Santhanam). Audiences are told why the leads are named after cricketers even when they have original names Ramarajan and Rajkiran respectively.
Dhoni falls head over heels for Seetha (Dhansika) en route to an interview for the post of a peon at the local councillor's office. At the interview, he mistakes the councillor for Seetha and expresses his feelings only to realise later that she is the wrong person.
"Ya Ya" is an attempt to evoke laughter with star comedians but the joke is on the audience.
Romantic comedy and Santhanam seem to be the flavour of the season. Considering the number of films of this genre that are flooding the market, it is quite surprising that most of them seem to be doing quite well.
Unfortunately, Ya Yaa starring Mirchi Siva and Santhanam is definitely not one of them.
With a cast that included Mirchi Siva, Santhanam and Powerstar, all hugely popular comedy stars with their own fan following, the audience certainly expected some huge laughs, but the film has nothing to offer their fans.
