Critics Review


Prepare to be scared!

The movie is a sleek and out of the box thriller that keeps you in the edge of your seat. A tightly knitted screenplay that is woven around a not-so-illogical-storyline with amazingly convincing performances makes the movie one of the few watchable ones in its genre in the recent times.

Cutting edge thriller needs cutting.

If the film works, it is because the director seems to know exactly what the modern audience is tired of watching. P.C. Sreeram’s cinematography sets the mood. And, there’s the leading man R.

A must-watch!

Very rarely do you get to see a movie that's not just logical and has good performances, but comes with a deliciously intriguing thriller whodunit tag as well. And that's exactly what you get in Yaavarum Nalam. It's the story that's king here and even the players themselves fall into the secondary c...(more)

A commendable effort.

Vikram K Kumar has tried something different with Yavarum Nalam. The premise may see too childish to some, but the treatment of the subject is extremely interesting and I must say scary too! Madhavan has done a fine job. The rest of the cast provides good support to the story. Cinematography by P.C ...(more)
