Storyline

Chandru is an MBA graduate, who was raised by his granny and lives a carefree life with his friends in Mumbai with simply no need to have a job to support him. Srila on the other hand is a young driving instructor living with her father, a retired army officer. They accidentally run into each other in the mêlée of a shootout between cops and terrorists, where Chandru saves Srila and falls for her looks. The blossoming romance hits roadblocks when Srila's father rejects Chandru as he has no job. Stung by the harsh treatment, Chandru tries hard to land a job and eventually gets one in a Middle East nation where he is caught in a conspiracy and his struggle to wriggle out of it forms the rest of the movie.

Yaan = Yawn
2 October 2014 | by (India) – See all my reviews

Storyline: A happy-go-lucky unemployed youth after being insulted by his girlfriend's father takes up a job in a foreign nation and lands in deep trouble.

What should have been a pointless entertainer has turned to be just pointless. Entertainment, if any, was only in the director's mind. Filled with numerous cliché this is just another movie made for the sake of making a movie and nothing more.

Flaws begin in the first half (love-at-first-sight, US return who messes with the hero) where the protagonist's immaturity haunts us. What should have been a riveting fun filled episode (like in Endrendrum Punnagai) is nothing more than passing cloud which just won't pass and keep pestering us. Only when we shift into the second half do we realise that it is not the hero's immaturity but the director's (in particular script writer) immaturity that shines on screen.

Two-thirds into the movie, most of us were busy doing things other than watching. I was praying (for the credits to roll down soon), my counterparts were snoring and other were creating memes.

Some of the flaws which I find worth mentioning: Lack of a gripping screenplay, logic has been thrown into the sea, powerful actors not being properly utilised (Nasser and Thambi Ramaiaah) and other flaws that I don't even want to recollect.

PS:My friends who woke after sleeping never felt like they missed a scene despite missing minutes together.

In short Yaan=Yawn.

A must avoid.
