Sundeep Kishan, who is the nephew of cinematographers Chota K Naidu and Shyam K Naidu, was a former associate of leading filmmaker Gautham Menon. After assisting him in Vaaranam Aayiram, he went on the make his acting debut in Telugu film Prasthanam. The film won him positive reports and soon he made his debut in Bollywood. After working in Bollywood and Telugu film industry, Sundeep Kishan entered Tamil films in Maranthen Mannithen, which was the dubbed version of Telugu movie Gundello Godari. 

And in a span of one month, he is back with yet another film Yaaruda Mahesh, Unlike his earlier Tamil film, the latest flick does not have a serious subject rather a completely comedy entertainer. Sundeep Kishan starrer Yaaruda Mahesh attracted audience with its trailer of the movie. The short video was very impressive and that generated curiosity about the film in the minds of audience. 

Well, will the film be as impressive as the trailer? Read on for the review to know it. Yaaruda Mahesh is a coming-of-age film made by a young team for the new generation audience. People, who never mind double meaning jokes, will definitely like this film. It is about two men Shiva (Sundeep Kishan) and Vasanth (Jagan), who enjoy spending time in bar or with a woman. As expected, their lives are waiting for a change and soon their new journey begins, as they start searching for Mahesh. 

Where does their journey begin? How their life get impacted from some incidents? Who is Mahesh? What happens when the mystery character enters in the story? Answers to all these questions form the crux of the story. From the word go, Madhan Kumar has used adult comedy and it will keep you entertained all throughout the film. But there are at parts, one would feel that the director has given overdose of double-meaning in the film. 

The first half of Yaaruda Mahesh is good and it makes youths to believe that the film is a paisa-vasool affair. The crass jokes keep coming regularly and makes the audience to laugh every few minute.

However, the second half is not up to the mark. The director's screenplay fails to make it engaging in the second half at various places. People would also come to the conclusion of the film is a best watch while have drinks! Nonetheless, youths will get impressed by the film.

Performance wise, Sundeep Kishan has given a decent performance and his co-star Jagan too has tried to match him up. Dimple Chopade is good at glamarour and other casts like Jagan, Srinath, Livingston,Uma Padmanaban, Swaminathan, Singamuthu and Nellai Siva have done justice to their characters.

Technically, Raana's cinematography is good and musician Gopi Sunder's has churned out a few passable numbers including 'Uyire uyiril...'. Overall, director Madhan Kumar could worked some more time on the script to make it a better product.

Verdict: It is one-time watch for youths.
