Yeidhavan helmed by debutant Sakthi Rajasekaran is a moderately watchable thriller, which keeps you hooked for half of its running time.

The film has a done-to-death plot, which delves deep into the malpractices in medical education and explores the struggles of the victims: the students. Precisely, the protagonist’s (Kalai Arasan) sister. We have been down this road before, at least in a handful of films such as Shankar’s Gentleman, Sivaji and recently, Vijay’s Bairavaa. But, that hasn’t deterred Sakthi Rajasekaran from taking up the premise again and giving it a new spin with a Mahabharata-inspired nomenclature for the film’s central characters: Krishna, Dharma, Gaurav, Karna.

Director Sakthi Rajasekar has interesting ideas, and his filmmaking neither looks half-baked nor lazy. He shows some assuredness in devising a scene and shot compositions. The rawness in action sequences can be felt.

Till the interval block, the film is intriguing with delightful twists and turns that keep us guessing. The first half is based on some real-life events, and sequences are superbly transformed on screen with a mainstream treatment. However, the movie falls flat in the second half, where it wanders without any direction. An item song towards the fag end of the film adds to the excruciating last few minutes.

Technically, the film is well-made on few occasions, thanks to cinematographer Prem Kumar’s realistic frames. Kalaiarasan delivers a below par performance and doesn’t look convincing. Villain Saretharan makes a good debut as a villain with his unique voice modulation.

Yeidhavan Movie Review Rating: 2.75/5
