Yaariyan Movie Review


Rajeev Masand didn't review this movie
Ratings:4/5 Review By: Taran Adarsh Site:Bollywood Hungama
The first half of YAARIYAN has its moments of fun, although the narrative tends to go astray at times. However, the writing gets consistent in the post-interval portions. The mountain biking race as also the rock climbing contest is the mainstay of the film. They are brilliantly executed! Prior to that, the tender moments shared by the lead pair works decently well too. On the whole, YAARIYAN has a gripping second half, smash hit musical score and the youthful romance that should lure and entice its target audience -- the youth. A treat for youngsters and young at heart!

Yaariyan is the spectacularly inept debut of Divya Khosla Kumar. This film is so bewilderingly bad that it hooks you - you keep watching just to see where the incoherent narrative will go next. The plot is foolish. The characters are vapid and the dialogue, superbly comical. it’s stuffed with banal but infectious songs that lodge themselves in your head. I’m going with one star.

On the whole, Yaariyan has ordi­nary entertainment value but its super-hit music is its trump card. The film will, therefore, appeal to the youth and prove to be a plus fare. Its superb opening is a big plus point.

The story has twists and turns, but no surprises. It packs in too much variety of thought bubbles (parties, patriotism, racial discrimination) in this boarding school drama. There are emotions, but the scenes or characters don't go deeper than the gloss, flipping quicker than their touch screen smart phones. The runtime is a tad long and songs (well-shot) one too many.'Yaariyan' is nothing to gush about, but the teenies can watch this one for a lark...and some yo-yo beats!

Yaariyan, it was claimed, is a college romance. But if you look closely, you will find that it is not one but several college romances put together such as Jo Jeeta Wahi Sikandar, Main Hoon Na and Ishq Vishk. Yaariyan may be targeted at a young audience but every single teenager who chooses to watch it will be insulting their own intelligence, writes Paloma Sharma.

Yaariyan seeks to pass off the most putrid and regressive ideas as representative of the thoughts and aspirations of Generation X. Calling Yaariyan silly would be the understatement of the year. It is mind-numbingly idiotic. It is the sort of film that makes Student of the Year look like Au Revoir les Enfants. Yaariyan talks about a whole lot of other things – friendship, trust, patriotism, race attacks and tolerance – but makes no sense at all. It would make perfect sense to give this film a miss.

I personally like the films which highlight the problems of modern youth, but then the designer youngsters of the Hindi film industry don't seem to have one. 1 for the film. 0.5 extra for bringing out the racial hatred towards Indian in Australia. Another 0.5 for songs. Total 2 out of 5

Yaariyan is a tailor made recipe for the teens, or those who have stacks of Pretty Little Liars, Gossip Girl DVDs lined up on their shelf. Yaariyan has only one big trump card – its music. The casting is stereotypical and adult jokes and s**ual innuendos have been inserted to cater to those battling puberty blues. Strictly for those who want to enjoy the songs on the big screen, the rest can go revisit Jo Jeeta Wohi Sikander the best college campus film of all time!

‘Yaariyan’ is meant to be many things as we keep discovering as we are dragged along its unending length. A youthful college film. A patriotic film that waves the Indian flag in faraway Australia and our own Sikkim. A love story with a fresh pair. And a container for some popular songs. Of all the boxes it tries to tick, this exhausting two-and-a-half hour product does best with the last one. Because for the others, there needed to have been a plot.

Films based on college life score well at the box office. But Divya Kohsla has gone over the top, staging a film that has the stupidest plot. The biggest drawback of the film is that there is no surprise element. Within first 15 minutes, you will be able to easily predict the entire story. . But you can’t completely write-off Yaariyan. What actually rescues the film is its music. Only for the teenagers and college goers who believe in unbelievable. ‘NO’ to everyone else.

There is no valid reason for you to watch Divya Khosla Kumar’s Yaariyan. It is dull, boring, pathetic and doesn’t seem to get over. Have you ever tried Indian, Italian, American, Continental cuisines all together in the same evening? Trust me the film was a pathetic variation of the same and believe my word, it was a cinematic acidity of sorts which plagues the viewers. Filmmakers please show some respect for the wit of your viewers and your craft and spare us the horror of such movies.

    1. Most of critics are bought..either by film camp or opposite camp.

    2. Actually his ratings depend on the box office performance of a film. If he thinks the film will be a hit he would give 4-5. If he thinks it'll be a flop he would give 1-2. He doesn't know anything about film making.

  15. I hv seen de movie, Its a good one time watch. The music, cinematography and acting by youngsters like Rakul, Pardy & Dev is good. It is certainly not as bad as it is being made out to be by some of the critics.There is definitely something wrong the way ratings are being given. Dhoom an Amir Khan starer was given a rating of 4+ by the same bunch of jokers,while it is one of the worst Amir Khan starer, where one is made to believe that the Indian cop can handle crime in Chicago better den US guys. One could barely sit through the first half. There is a requirement of bringing more objectivity in ratings.

  16. these reviewers r brainless character.they give 3.5 stars fr a crap movie like dhoom 3..seriously wat was good in dat movie dat it collected 500 crores?? Chennai express was 10 times better than dhoom 3

  25. Yaariyan is no doubt a good movie, its not that bad as these critics are saying, it should be kept in mind that it is a youth entertainer movie. Though the story is simple and not very surprising but the music is superb and it is a very entertaning movie with lots of comedy. Good one time watch!!!

  27. #Yaariyan - Patriotism, adventure, love story, mother-son relation and don't even know what else. Phew!!! In one word, its 'CRAP'. Its said to be a youth entertainer but its just a youth 'BOOOOOOOOOORE'. I expected it to be a good entertainer but from the very first joke, one gets to know what one is going to witness. Coming to the story,ummmmmm..well,I will just let you all know about the story once I understand it (LOLZZZ). All the new comers overact at times that annoys you a lot. The best thing in the movie is to close your eyes and listen the songs because if you open your eyes, you are gonna hate them too. However, mother-son relation is portrayed good. All in all, debutant director tries a lot to entertain with her HORMONAL LOCHA movie but she did a lot of LOCHA during the making that you pray to god when this crap is gonna end.

    Verdict : 0.5*/5 (Just for songs)

    Better opt for #DedhIshqiya this weekend.

  28. YAARIYAN: Shame! Shame! Shame! Recommending this would need guts! I don’t have that [0.5/5]

    After I left it out in the interval, I haven’t been really able to judge what is more shameful, appalling and inexcusable in Divya Khosla Kumar’s YAARIYAN- an allegedly youthful film about college-going generation experimenting with their aimless-clueless-directionless lives till they reach the state of realization. Is it the very first 20-25 minutes that only demonstrate how a hysterical teenager [played by Himansh Kohli- an ‘ohh, he’s sooo cute’ chap with all his white teeth out for exhibition] tries his hard luck to enjoy his first kiss? The first kiss always ends up in some not so favorable results, for most I guess but what happens here is totally weird and bizarre! And on the top of that, his loud & clear proclamations to go on date with the hottest girl in college someday soon!


    Or is it the level of humor that permits itself to show women as sex-objects? Be it the female teachers in sleeveless low-cut blouses acting only as seductress to male teachers and falling over them or a barely dressed girl student playing the role of ‘bharat mata’ in college-play and the rest of male actors competing to not waste the ‘opportunity’ to get physical with her, you know what exactly the film is trying to do…to tickle the boneless leech inside you.

    There are many in the list but the most unforgivable is the fact that ‘YAARIYAN’ comes out of Divya Khosla Kumar, a woman and a mother herself. If she doesn’t find all these offensive, I would certainly have my doubts on her sense and sensibility. As captain of the ship, she only shows an upper hand in picturisation of songs. They are edgy, sharp, stylish and with music video kinda look, but whenever you look out for her expertise in emotional scenes or in the drama part, she falls miserably. Even the writing is so immature, convenient and flawed that you only enjoy the transitions to make story go further with unplanned funny clarifications.

    A bunch of losers who are flashy, shoddy and hopeless in their lives get selected by the principal of the college to take part in an art & culture competition with some Australian college, in order to save the institution from going in bad business hands. They sure have their ‘**ck it all’ reasons behind the selection but then enters the heavy-duty emotional extravaganza of racial discriminations in Australia. And then starts the most illogical and irritating part where Australian students lift their song while they were busy singing & dancing on your highness Yo Yo Honey Singh’s ‘aaj din hai sunny-sunny’, beat one of them out to death for actually no reasons and what not!! Our poor babies!!

    With a lead starcast that is best to look at only on posters when they are not allowed to speak, act or emote, I was expecting surprises but ended up with possibilities of losing my mind, sense of cinema and high opinion for today’s youth that are in real more designed for future than the multimillionaire T-series headhoncho Bhushan Kumar’s talented wife Divya Khosla Kumar thinks and believes. Recommendations of any kind for this would need guts! I don’t have that in me. [0.5/5]

    2. Hi Maryam,

      no personal grudges against the lady in question here. but just because they are newcomers and first-timers, i can't praise their efforts, if it is not worth of. Sorry! My idea of encouraging people doesn't find its base on lies.

      I write what I think and everyone else has their own opinions to agree or disagree. can't help it! Absurdity in the name of entertainment is a complete no-no for me. u enjoy-u encourage-u get entertained but don't give statements like today's youth like it. they deserve better and they know it.

      Apologies if my words have made you upset...

      but this is my job, and i'll continue doing that as per my understandings!

      regards,
      gaurav

    3. I agree with you Gaurav. Our Generation should do something better and believable. Our Directors always look to Hollywood....but they forget that WE have Great Directors like Sir 'Satyajit Say', 'Viijay Anand', 'V. Shantaram' & 'Bimal Roy ' . We should take lessons from them.


      I really want our India Cinema to grow like the Asians.
      Some of our young gen Directors are doing Good like:
      Anurag Kashyap, Hansal Mehta, Vikramaditya Motwane, Rajkumar Hirani, Rakesh Om Prakash Mehra, so many more....
      Thanks to God we have some Gems still in bollywood...otherwise the position of our Cinema would have been different.

      @ Afrah Maryam

      Gaurav 's Review about this movie is basically Fair Justice.
      You are talking about the efforts of the stars in it then I am sorry to say Mr. Afrah Maryam then we should not even critisized the B & C Grade stuff. Cos they also put their Heart and Soul to make those Movies.

  31. I don't know that what is the status of people over here .sometimes they like the most bakwas movies like dhoom 3 and makes it all time blockbuster.i think Katrina was only a show piece in the movie just for sex appeal.i think yaarian was not as bad as dhoom 3.yes somethigs are objectionable but song picturizaeion especially bearish is awsam.some things are very meaningful and a good moral for the youth.

  38. Gaurav rai is absolutely right about the movie.If someone likes so much to write positive reviews abt it then its better to say that you will always like idiotic movies you people will never understand the true good sensible cinema.And why is there a fuzz abouth youth vs older generation when critics are panning it.Dont you have even simple sense of what is good and bad.It seems the positive comments come straight from promotion & producing team of the film as are coming only good reviews on television heeeeeeeee bulshit film wonder how anybody likes it .Go and buy a audio cd or download songs and listen to them
