"The observer is being observed" -Yutham Sei (2011)
Yutham Sei (or Yuddham Sei) is a movie with a dark plot, non-linear narrative, and blood and gore. The runtime of the movie is 2 hours 32 minutes. Though the runtime is a bit long, as the movie catches pace it gets more engaging.
Cheran (J. Krishnamoorthy) does a good job in playing the role of an emotionally weak police officer, but in other areas his acting is plainly bland. Lakshmi Ramakrishnan (Dr. Purushottam's wife) acted brilliantly. The cinematography is good but the BGM is mediocre. Mysskin as a writer and director of this movie delivers a good serial-killer / psychological thriller movie at a time when the Indian audience didn't know much about such genres.
Despite the positives, Yutham Sei does contains few negatives. Some illogical scenes and an item song ruined this movie a bit.
My final verdict: A near-perfect crime thriller. All the questions answered. A must-watch movie.
My overall score: 8.6⭐/10
Rotten Tomatoes: 85% (audience score) Available on: Disney+ Hotstar, Amazon Prime Video
