Of course being a faithful remake of Selvaraghavan's original Adavari Matalukku Ardhale Verule, debutant director Jawahar adds new pep and colour to the already hit script. No doubt it is a well packaged film that will appeal to a broad spectrum of audiences.
Vasu (Dhanush) is an irresponsible son of a disciplined school teacher (Raghuvaran). He meets Keerthi (Nayantara) in an interview where she is the officer incharge. He is attracted by her beauty. He manages to get a job in the her company and directly reports to her. After a tour to Australia for a project, he feels that he has become close to her and he confidently he proposes her. But he is shocked to hear that she is already engaged to her cousin and that her weddings is to happen soon.
Sympathizing the heart broken and upset Vasu, his father tries to convince Keerthi but she humiliates him in her office in the presence of all the staff.. On the same night, Vasu's father dies of a heart-attack. a depressed Vasu decides to go with his friend (Karthik) to his village where he is getting married. As expected (by the viewers!), Karthik's would -be is none other than Keerthi.
After knowing Vasu's father's death Keerthi feels guilty and apologizes to Vasu for her behaviour. Later Vasu goes to Keerthi's place and convinces everyone that he is the one for Keerthi. The first half is city based section of the movie ands is comical especially during the conflict between the father and son, their slow bonding and then the tragedy. Sometimes it reminiscent the first half of 7G Rainbow Colony.
The first half belongs to the late Raghuvaran, who does excellent acting as the strict father who secretly loves his son. Did he have any kind of omen about his real life death? What a sad coincidence. The onscreen Chemistry between Nayanthara and Dahnush is perfect, which makes the love story enjoyable.
It is a tailor made role for Dhanush who easily has won everybodys heart with his boy next door image. His ability to make a character lively, with all the nuances of anger, frustration, humour and tenderness is reason enough to see this film. Nayantara looks sensational and has done a great job - that too in an equal role to the hero.
Newcomer Saranya, who plays Nayanytara's charming young sister, makes a good debut. Karuna's comedy makes you laugh. Yuvan Shankar Raja's background score and music is big asset to the film. Especially the melodious Yengeyo Partha.... and Oh Baby... have been beautifully shot by the director. Sidharth's camera work is another highlight of the film.
On the downside, the film is too long especially the second half and the climax is too confusing. Overall, Yaradi Nee Mohini is one of the best entertainers of this summer.
