Star Performance

Sachin Joshi has given out an okayish performance. Kishore, Prabhu and Sathish have done their parts well, as usual.


Tatineni Satya has chosen a script that is a mixture of various genres. Yes, the movie has a sports genre, mystery and also the masala formula. The narration by Satya is okayish, but it didn't satisfy the viewers. It was said that the film is bilingual. But, except the scenes involving Prabhu, Sathish and Kishore, all the other scenes seems to have been shot in Telugu and dubbed in Tamil.

What’s There?

  • Performance of the supporting stars is good
  • Background music is okayish

What’s Not There?

  • Lead stars should have worked out a bit for better performance
  • Although the film comes with different genres, it is not executed properly.
  • As the lip synching is not good, we feel like watching a dubbed movie


Although the story is different and the idea to implement is good, the director didn’t execute it in a pleasing way. With the excellent supporting cast, people expect more from the makers. But, Yaar Ivan didn’t touch the hearts!
