The movie was brilliant and classy. These two words summarizes the best about "Yennai Arindhal". I'm writing this review after seeing all the other typical reviews such as; "I'm a thala fan, and thala rocks", "Thanks to Thala Gautham's movie is a success", "This is Thala's 55th movie". Well, no doubt all the typical reviews are true and it makes sense for the fans of Ajith. I agree Ajith's appearance and acting is parallel to Gautham's beautiful projection of a movie with class, BUT there sure is more to the movie just than the entertainment.
Some wrote that the is no logic in the movie, I'm not sorry to disagree with the statement as there are heaps of deep insights in each an every dialogue in the movie. How the messages passed out to each other in the movie are kept simple, brilliant, yet deep. Observe carefully, you'll get what I mean; especially for those thinkers.
Yennai Arindhaal, is a clear message of how a person who understands himself has more confidence compared to those who don't. Ajith's confidence as the character of Sathya Dev in the movie till the very end, defines the movie title. Sathya Dev was aware of himself, as he knows when there comes a thin line, on which side he should step his foot into. The storyline was beautiful as there were imperfections in Sathya Dev's character where he realizes later on how not to repeat the mistakes he has done in the past.(If you look closely at a tree you'll notice it's knots and dead branches, just like our bodies. What we learn is that beauty and imperfection go together wonderfully)
Sathya carrys a very iron-willed role, who is soft in heart thanks to the LOVE he had (Hemanika) & has (Eesha). Yet, LOVE wins his heart no matter how tough his struggle / situation can be. Trisha's acting was simply beautiful and it's not a childish love they portrayed in the movie. Sathya's and Hemanika's love was beyond other typical love stories. It was maturity redefined in a more desirable way.
I see a good balance in Sathya's character, as he understands himself well (Yennai Arindhaal), and a beautiful balance in the storyline. He will open the door to his heart to Thenmozhi only at the ending of the movie, realizing the LOVE she had for Eesha and Sathya Dev despite all the trials they encountered in the movie.
A good balance about Karma, Friendship and Enemy was well played by the great Villain, Victor! I didn't admire him in his other movies, but he played his role in this movie extremely well to represent all the three important messages in the movie which are "Karma, Friendship and Enemy".
Yes the movie is 3 hours, and you would have heard bad reviews. But hey, it's their personal preference. They are right in their eyes. But putting my personal preference aside (Ajith & Trisha's appearance, which I have to admit), and to talk about movie as a whole, it's a well balanced storyline with class in it.
Kudos to the whole team!
