Excellent entertainer
19 June 2006 | by (India) – See all my reviews

A highly entertaining movie which has an adequate blend of action and comedy. Though the basic plot has been 'inspired' by Eddie Murphy's olden Child' this movies has enough in it to keep the viewer engaged.

To summarize the plot - Mohanlal is a happy-go-lucky youth leading a carefree life in a small village in Kerala. His trysts with his dim-witted cousin Jagathi form the initial half of the movie. Fate brings him to Nepal where he gets embroiled in the stereotypical battle between 'good and evil'. The second half of the movie is focuses on how Mohanlal protects the Lama incarnate child from evil forces led by Puneet Issar.

The movie has a great comedy track between Mohanlal and Jagathi which runs throughout the length of the movie without ever derailing the main plot. Jagathi has been given some excellent one-liners and provides very good support to Lal's superb comic timing. The action scenes are the highlight of this movie, especially those where Lal is being trained in martial arts. The child artiste Siddhartha comes up with a wonderfully endearing performance especially his call of 'Akosotto'. Mohanlal delivers another effortless and flawless performance proving that he is simply the best when it comes to roles like these. Music is hummable and nothing extraordinary except the duet 'Padakali' between Yesudas and Sreekumar. On the downside, the villain, Puneet Issar appears unrealistic and story-bookish and also tends to overdo the snarling bit. But this does not take anything away from the overall content of Yodha.

All in all, this movie is worth a watch any number of times and is a good option when one just wants to be entertained.
