Yaakkai | Movie Review | Trailer | Krishna Swathi Prakash Raj
After ‘Yatchan’, Kreshna and Swathi are back once again. This time for ‘Yaakkai’, a film which tries to fit itself in romantic thriller genre. Kathir (Kreshna) a bubbly youth, meets Kavitha (Swathi) at a bus stop and it is love at first sight for him. But soon, Kavitha gets killed in a road mishap. In the meantime, few other murders too happen. The police commissioner (Prakash Raj) finds a common link between the deaths and it emerges that Kavitha was murdered actually. All roads lead to a hospital, whose top boss is into commiting medical crimes. The rest is all about an all out war between Kathir and the hospital owner (Guru Somasundaram).
Both Kreshna, the hero, and Guru Somasundaram, the villain, don’t fit to their respective roles. While the former looks alien to ‘loosu payyan’ character, the latter is like a fish out of water as a sophisticated baddie. But Swathi fills the gap, as she is beautiful and performs well too. Prakash Raj proves why he is veteran. So is Yuvan Shankar Raja, who has touched a milestone of 20 years as music composer. Though the film starts on a promising note, it looses momentum as it progresses. Especially the climax is dragging. But there are some interesting aspects too which may hold your attention to an extent.
