Yaan revolves entirely around the protagonist and how he lands himself in a crisis. There is the redundant romantic track between Tulasi and Jiiva with some predictable scenes. The first half of Yaan, simply made me Yawn!
But the same can’t be said about the second-half. It is brisk, racy and keeps you hooked. However, these elements don’t fully stay till the end. This is because of long, high-flawed and unintentionally funny scenes. A special mention to the scene where Jiiva takes on the ‘undertaker’ jailer. And also, the scene where Malik speaks in Tamil at his swearing-in ceremony, in front of the Arab crowd.
Meanwhile, Malik is also a most-wanted terrorist who has an Ekta Kapoor sitcom-inspired backstory. Who would’ve predicted the generous inclusion of the Indian element in the script? I’d be lying if I said I didn’t like the visual presentation of this movie. Ravi K. Chandran’s influence is reflected on its camera work and makes the shots seem stunningly picturesque. Harris Jeyaraj’s music leaves you with the "I’ve heard this before" feeling too.
