Yaaruda Mahesh Review - Strictly for youngsters
Not long ago, the trailer of ‘Yaaruda Mahesh’ created a storm in the social media circles. The trailer was promising and people expected the movie to be a fun watch. Does the movie live up to the hype created by the trailer? The answer will neither be a yes or no as the movie is a fun ride hindered with uninteresting moments. The movie does not offer anything new, but the interesting treatment is what sets the movie apart.
The story revolves around the happy-go-lucky guy Shiva (Sundeep Kishan) who falls in love with Sindhya (Dimple). Shiva manages to woo her and marry her but a mystery man Mahesh enters into the story at the stroke of intermission. Shiva is joined by his friend Vasanth (Jagan) to find out who Mahesh is.
Sundeep Kishan, who made his debut in Kollywood with ‘Maranthen Mannithen’ looks more confident on screen in this film. He fits into the role of a careless guy convincingly. Dimple has little scope for expressions and she is used more for glamour quotient in songs. It is Jagan’s one-liners that keep the audience engaged in the movie throughout. Without his presence, the movie might have been a dull affair.
Music is by Gopi Sunder and two songs are hummable. But, the background score is too loud at times. Also, the item song in the first half is more of an effort to please the front benchers and other songs too appear at regular intervals, acting as speed breakers. Raana’s camera work is praise-worthy and he makes the movie technically slick. The song sequence that has been shot in exotic locations has been picturized beautifully.
Script and Direction – Madhan Kumar
The movie is rated ‘A’ and rightly so. Director Madhan Kumar has made a script that completely relies on double entendres and although they work out most of the times, one might feel it is overdone. The screenplay is treated in a light-hearted way and youngsters might find it engaging.
The movie manages to entertain the audience for most part of the running time but things get monotonous after a while. The second half drags a lot and needed trimming. While some of the sequences look really fresh, few sequences in the second half (especially the mimicry scene) fall flat.
‘Yaaruda Mahesh’ is strictly meant for youngsters. They might end up enjoying the movie if they sit through some flat jokes.

Rating Full Review
Comedy in parts
Yaaruda Mahesh is a unidirectional product that targets youth with liberal does of adult humor but is not powerful enough to sustain the interests through the entire length of the film. Yaaruda Mahesh certainly has not lived up to the expectations generated by the trailer. » more

It is one-time watch for youths
The first half of Yaaruda Mahesh is good and it makes youths to believe that the film is a paisa-vasool affair. The crass jokes keep coming regularly and makes the audience laugh every few minute. » more

If double-meaning, adult jokes are your cup of tea, you will enjoy this movie
This is not to say that the movie does not have its moments. Jagan, after his negative turn in the recent movie Vathikuchi, is in terrific form and shares a very good rapport with Sundeep. Their drunken antics are hilarious, and Jagan's expressions and dialogue delivery are bang on. Shiva's attempts... » more

The film is meant for the youth audiences
The first half of the film is quite enjoyable with a lot of adult jokes, but in the second half, as the hero searches for the heroine's ex-lover it starts losing steam. Most of the jokes fall flat as they are repeated and screenplay goes haywire. And audiences can predict the climax which is a big let down. » more

Scrappily made. Mildly tolerable
The plot, such as it is, kicks in at interval point, when Shiva is seen wearing a T-shirt patterned with a question mark - reflecting the title of R Madhan Kumar's Yaaruda Mahesh. We're meant to wonder, along with Shiva, who Mahesh is - but the film isn't terribly invested in this revelation. It's m... » more
