This is one bloody film which has really missed the whole point. The money that was invested has created some beautiful locales, but the story and script is a big let down. Every frame is inspired from hollywood. I doubt whether Raghava has actually penned a single page of the script.
The second half is real pain to sit through. No explanation is given to the story whatsoever. The movie felt like a cheap softcore. Andrea is way better than Reema sen.
The background score is excellent, but can't help the downfall of the film. Karthi is believable in his role.
Pros: Background score, Karthi Cons: Script, story
The reported 32 crores of rupees are right there in front of you - both in the technical departments and in the vision. Yet, Yuganiki Okkadu is a difficult film to sit through. Not because it is an idea that the makers couldn't handle, but because the idea itself wasn't fleshed out in a palatable direction.
One problem with Yuganiki Okkadu is the tendency to focus on the novel and turn it into the bizarre. The casualty of the endeavour thus turns out to be the soul of the movie - of a story that might well have been thrilling right till the end.
