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.
