Yennai Arindhaal

The Movie: Yennai Arindhaal (True Translation: If you know me)


Caption: Partly Emotional, Partly Humanitarian, and Partly Romantic

Savvy’s Rating: 3.75 / 5

Zephyr: Background music, Songs, Story, Screenplay and most of the Casting

Brush off:

1)  Second heroine role can be generic ;  not really crucial. Instead of an established actress, any upcoming hero / heroine would have made justice to this role too

2) At times, it looks like Hero is not acting. Just doing his well known mannerisms. Don’t know if I have to still consider as acting

3) Hospital scenes where the Hero tries to save his friend’s daughter are not convincing ; those were very crucial in the movie

4) Nazar is under utilized

Savvy’s Rede:

Love always sells. Especially, a slow paced love where looks exchange, waiting for the girl, unconditional love are perfect to connect to audience. On top, if the guy is carefully balancing his personal and professional life, yep, he’s a Hero and is most Wanted by all gals. 🙂

This movie is not a trilogy. But, Hero gets to play various roles to save 3 gals in his life viz., Heroine 1, her daughter and Heroine 2. I felt like he’s a Super Human emoting all possible emotions in the world – Lovable, Romantic, Responsible, Tough etc. etc. 😉

Btw, if it is all about Hero everywhere, can we call it as, “Exclusively for Thala fans??!!!” 😉

MovieMakers always use this sure shot success formula of producing movies with established hero / developed “so called image”. The good thing is minimal Paisa Wasool (min ROI). It’s all part of business, you see. 😀

Story in a nutshell (spoiler alert):


1) Professional Life: Tough cop → a night mare to Villains → goes in disguise to the jail and befriends human trafficking gang member (Victor) → Gets to know about Head of that gang thru Victor → When Victor realizes that, things get lot worse → Now, the Hero has a main enemy in the name of Victor

2) Personal Life: Likes an artiste, Hemanika (Trisha) → She’s a single mom with a cute daughter → Both are good friends → Hero never proposes her although he starts liking her in the very first sight → After say 5-6 years, one fine day, he proposes Trisha → Gets married → On the very day of wedding, a mishap happens to her

Heroine 1: Hemanika (Trisha) → Hero’s love interest → Has a daughter → Theirs is a silent love

Little gal: Dad/Daughter scenes are emotional and touchy. No complaints

Heroine 2: Themozhi (Anushka) → a wasted role → Sorry 😐

Villain: Handsome villain → leads human trafficking and organ stealing mafia business → got a contract for Organs for a wealthy man → the suitable donor is Heroine 2 → Hero is trying to save her by going above and beyond

What mishap happened on the day of wedding? whether the Villain get to take Organs from Heroine 2? What happens to kidnapped little girl? Time to watch it onScreen.

What worked well:

1) I am in awe of background score ; Honestly, I have a feeling that it is NOT done by Harris, I could be wrong

2) Story is good; Screenplay is done well

3) Villain is good looking and did his role very well

Savvy’s Punch:

I do not call it as a 100% thriller but definitely keeps you engaged. In Telugu, it is dubbed as Yentha Vaadu Gaanie. If you get a chance, watch it.
