Ravi K. Chandran’s first film as a director Yaan is something new. Cinematographer Ravi K Chandran makes his directorial debut with Yaan. The story is a bit dated and follows the commercial cinema format to the T. Chandru (Jiiva) is a good for nothing guy with a heart of gold who lives with his grandmother and has a ball with his friends. He falls head over heels in love with Srila (Thulasi) and wants to marry her, but her dad (Nasser) a military man opposes it.
So he goes in search of a job to an Arab country, but is taken for a sucker ride by a travel agent. He finds himself in a maze and is about to be beheaded in a strange land. There all happened in the first half. The second half it is all action and the remaining answered the question Whether Chandru released from jail or not?
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 is simply made nice.
Jiiva, as Chandru, has two shades of roles - and he performs both convincingly. Jiiva is riveting and does a decent job as a larger than-life- hero who can do comedy, dancing and action scenes with convictions.
Thulasi Nair gets a better outing this time, and has some range of expressions in her bag. Harris Jayaraj has delivered his recent best with Yaan. His rerecording stands out. Though his songs are good to hear and lavish to watch. Totally Yaan is fully entertainer to watch.
