Tamil actor Arun Vijay’s new film, Yaanai under the direction of Hari had a simultaneous release in Telugu as Enugu on July 1st. Let’s analyse it.
Being a protective person Ravi( Arjun Vijay) keeps safeguarding his joint family from rivalry gang. Ravi is the last child in the family that has three big brothers. The entire film runs on the disputes between the family members. Who is the reason behind distrubance in the joint family? How will Ravi sort out all the issues in the family and reunions it, forms the crucial crux of the film.
Arun Vijay did the given massy role with so much ease. His intense acting and the makeover as a small town person brings depth to the proceedings to an extent.
Samuthirakani gets a purposeful role as the elder brother and did his part quite effectively. Actors who are seen in middle brother roles are okay with their performance. KGF fame Ramachandra Raju did his negative shaded character quite effectively.
Female artists such as Ammu Abhirami, Radhikaa Sarathkumar, Priya Bhavani Shankar among others did their key roles quite convincingly. Yogi Babu ‘s comic dialogues come as a relaxation for this serious drama.
While the cinematography work by S Gopinath elevates the mood for this rural drama nicely, the music by GV Prakash decent. Two emotional situational songs which come at the crucial juncture are incorporated nicely in the proceedings, the background score elevates all key action blocks.
The editing work by Anthony is alright as he made sure that the film has runtime within limits. Production values for this limited budget movie are okay.
Coming to the direction part, though Hari’s idea of making an action drama by incorporating enough family emotions in it good, he would have worked even more on the script and focus on the narrative part.
- Action part
- Music to an extent
- Ages old storyline
- Melodrama episodes
In an overview, Enugu is a predictable action drama that has a few family related hard-hitting emotions sequences. On the flip side, the beaten to death storyline and lack of unique approach dilutes the audience interest.
