Yaanum Theeyavan Tamil Movie Review


Mike (Ashwin Jerome) is a happy go lucky youth who is in love with Sowmy (Varsha Bollama). As their parents oppose their affair, they elope from their houses to enter wedlock.

Meanwhile, Mike rubs a local don Pasupathi (Raju Sundaram) on the wrong side, as the gang led by the latter teases Mike and Sowmy. This makes Pasupathi to vow to take revenge on Mike.

Call it fate, Mike and Sowmy get caught in the hands of Pasupathi, who uses them as pawns to escape from the police. The police are after him, as Pasupathi is now out of favour of a minister who was supporting him.

With Pasupathi one side and the police on the other, what Mike does to save himself and Sowmy? Is he able to teach a ‘fitting lesson’ to Pasupathi?


Debutant director Prashanth G Sekar tries to convey a message- that every good man has a bad man inside and vice versa- with Yaanum Theeyavan.

This is the first film for protagonist Ashwin Jerome as well and he has given a decent performance, while Varsha is bubbly. Raju Sundaram, hitherto seen in comedy and song sequences, has played a baddie.

The film has Achu Rajamani scoring the music while Shreyas Krishna has cranked the camera and Prasanna GK is the editor. All the three have done their respective parts in a decent manner.

A former associate of Hari, Prashanth G Sekar reminds us of his mentor in some scenses. Despite logical loopholes, Yaanum Theeyavan has some moments to impress.

Rating: 2.5 out of 5
