One thing that comes to your mind after watching debutant director Sathya Prabhas Pinisetty's Yaagavarayinum Naa Kaakka is that he seems to be pretty confused while scripting this film.  

It stars off as a friendship story with a hero who is a boy-next-door meek guy and then it shifts its genre to being a cute love story that turns into a pucca action film at interval point.  Post interval, the director takes us on a different trip as the genre turns into a psychological thriller only to end as a friendship drama once again!

On the whole, this film is like having a grand buffet lunch where all the dishes looks delicious and tempting but ultimately is tasteless and bland. Sathya Prabhas is heavily inspired by classics like Mounaragam, Nayakan, and Naadodigal.  The story offers little by way of freshness or originality, instead piling up the cliches and reinforcing lazy stereotypes which lacks tension or thrills.

Although peppered with good actors like Pasupathy, Narain, Nassar and above all Mithun Chakravarthy, the film gives them little to do, leaving the bulk of heavy lifting to Aadhi who plays Saga and thankfully he doesn’t disappoint.  Nikki Galrani's infectious smile and energy is a major plus in the first half.  It is good to see a heroine takes that extra effort to dub her lines and more importantly with proper lip-sync, way to go young girl! But in the second half, she disappears and a new set of heroines and characters take over. 

Too many songs look unnecessary and the length of the film is a drawback.  On the whole, everything about Yaagavarayinum Naa Kaakka  feels rehashed and redundant.

Verdict: Average
