21 February 2011 | by (India) – See all my reviews

The general consensus of Yudham Sei: "An edge of the seat thriller." I agree with the choice of words. I was actually on the edge of my seat contemplating on walking out of the theatre. That was thrilling, compared to the film.

Yudham Sei is self-indulgent pretentious garbage that I wouldn't watch even if I was to get paid for it. Homeless beggars would rather sleep on the streets than sleep in an air-conditioned theatre that screens the film. Director Mysskin has tried too hard to make a powerful film by playing with the audience's emotions. With the film he shocks, provokes, inserts twists, milks sentiment as and when he wishes.

The lead character is J.Krishnamoorthy. He runs fast, he takes on eight people with a penknife and wears leather shoes. The man is labeled as a "good" guy. That's how the central character of the film is written. He has hardly any depth. All you know is that he is "the best police officer" and that he wants to find his kidnapped sister. How are we to understand him and his wants? He is glorified by making every other character around him seem insensitive. This is the limit of Mysskin's talent. He might be able to capture and invert beautiful shots of cobwebs, cardboard boxes, watermelons, snakes, skies, lampposts and water, in various colors of light, but a consummation of all that doesn't qualify as a film. It's no more than a power point presentation of google image search results.

You know right from the beginning that it's a talented crew and they could be good at what they do. Unfortunately, they're in the wrong hands. Mysskin uses them in all the wrong ways. He has an eye for detail but not the honesty of an artist. He goes to the extent of making a direct reference to Rashomon by using the film's name. It wasn't a tribute or a token of appreciation; it was a shameless attempt at letting the audience know that he's someone with international exposure to films. As if we've forgotten about him not giving credit to the original material that Nandalala was adapted from. Mysskin has low self esteem, he doesn't have faith in his script and therefore he tries to get the music to drive the film. Newcomer K certainly has talent but it's the truth, everyone has to start at the bottom.

The screenplay is laughable. It's so horribly contrived. Half the story is narrated by a nearly dead man who laughs and drinks despite having two bullets lodged in his intestine. The characters keep doing things that are out of character. Mysskin, the director should never hire Mysskin, the screenwriter again. From Mysskin's films, it's pretty obvious that he's a film-maker only because he wants to be one, not because he enjoys making films. It's shabbily overdone and the visual metaphors just make it worse. Yudham Sei is like eating a burger filled with just mayonnaise. You're going to feel like throwing up. I could write another thousand words about why the film sucks so hard, but I'm going to spare you of that. It's poison. Stay away from it.
