A fine attempt that discusses many important topics!

Story & Narration
Technical Aspects & Music

Debutant Jeyaram Prabhu’s Yennanga Sir Unga Sattam is a very unique and interesting film that rolls out in two halves – the first being a partly funny tale of a loser winning his ladylove, while the second is a serious, no-nonsense story of caste divides, equality and more.

The film is being promoted as a duplex film, which means that it has two stories narrated in two halves, for the director Jeyaram Prabhu rolls out his work with a very laidback and lethargic first half that hardly has anything going for it in terms of its story. The director packs in the tale of a loser and how he attains his wife, after going through girlfriends across all religions. However, the film takes a major turn at the interval point, after which it leads to a fabulous second half that puts across its points on equality, the problems attested in caste angles, flaws in the laws and more.

Prabhu’s idea to work out two films in two halves is brave and interesting to watch, as there’s a whiff of fresh air in his narration when it comes to the second half, as compared to the first. It is clear that the director has done his observations when it comes to the caste angles in the society, but he could have brought forward his points much earlier instead of waiting for the aftermath of the second half.

Karthik PK, who plays the lead, is a fine find and does his job well especially in the first half of the film. The second half has a couple of good new actors such as Vikas and the young man who plays the Akshadhar, however, the one who steals the show is definitely Rohini who has an impactful presence in both the halves.

The film’s cinematography, music and editing are all neat and don’t have much to complain about. If not for Guna Balasubramaniam’s songs in the first half, the film would have been very dreary to watch.

All in all, Yennanga Sir Unga Sattam is a film worth watching for its strong second half that has a story that deserves attention. Sometimes, you’d wish it would be better if the second half had been stretched into two stories, in order to garner better attention.
