Yaar Ivan is a Telugu – Tamil bilingual by Satya which has debutant Sachin Joshi acting and produced by Raina Joshi.
With a good budget this movie apes most elements from Hollywood movies and turns out brash and immature. The funniest thing in the movie is the orange garb worn by prisoners in India like in western movies. The prison wars and games all are reminiscent of English movies. There is a murder angle too and a very strange end to it.
Sachin all beefed up is unimpressive while Eesha Gupta saves our time being pretty. Kishore is in a weak role and so is Prabhu, Satish tries his comedy in vain while others are average.
Cinematography by Binendra Menon is good while music by SS Thaman is effective. Editing could have been better while dialogues are rudimentary. Direction is below standard.
Yaar ivan does not match up and ends up being a sorry attempt.
YAAR IVAN – THEVA ILLAI !
