Verdict: D Boss’s film is a complete entertainer with a powerful message.
Yajamana is undoubtedly one of the most awaited films for Sandalwood lovers. Written and directed by V. Harikrishna and Pon Kumaran and produced by Shylaja Nag and B Suresha, the film stars Darshan, Rashmika Mandanna and Tanya Hope in lead roles. The film also holds a strong supporting cast including Thakur Anoop Singh, Devaraj, Ravi Shankar, and Dhananjay in key supporting roles. The film has had a grand release across 500 screens in India and is expected to make some record-breaking success.
What’s Yajamana About:
Yajamana is the story of Krishna who is his own boss. In his small town of Hulidurga, he runs an oil company and takes great pride in his success. He is also a people’s person and helps other small-scale businessmen in his village. The village holds a huge heritage based on oil plants and traditional practices surrounding their work. However, this oil minting village is under constant threat by capitalist forces and the government. A multinational company called Golden Eagle conspires to take over the entire oil business in the village and successfully does so. So Krishna sets off to Mumbai to bring down Golden Eagle’s business. How a small-town man using his wit and intellect to fight the big dogs forms the rest of the film’s plot.
Yajamana is a movie for the masses with a strong message. It talks about the plight of small-scale businessmen who are overthrown by multinational companies. The film throws light into the need for such entrepreneurs to stand united and not give up to the capitalist system. Talking about the commercial aspects of the film, there are immense opportunities for Darshan fans to whistle and clap till their hands hurt. The power dialogues are carefully crafted for the mass audience and do its job beautifully. The chemistry between Rashmika and Darshan is fresh and sets the screen on fire. Sadhu Kokila does his usual comical mastery and owns some scenes completely. V. Harikrishna makes a remarkable and noteworthy contribution to the film through his impactful music.
What Could’ve Been Better:
Yajamana strictly follows a commercial film formula. While the cast thoroughly impresses, we wish we could have seen more from the talented supporting actors as well.
Why You Should Watch:
The film is a vibrant visual treat to all hardcore Darshan fans. Yajamana does complete justice to Sandalwood lovers who are looking for mass dialogues, heroic action, and item numbers. It is pure entertainment and every scene is worth mass applause.
