Actor Kreshna has proved his worth playing lead in few films in the past. He is busy with a few films that included Yakkai. Come Friday, Yaakkai hits the screens and expectations were high post teaser release. One look and the movie seem to impress audience.
It si a mystery film with revenge, action, romance and drama. More in the lines of Ghajini, this medical thriller is engaging and entertaining.Director Kuzhandhai Velappan's Yaakkai is a gritty thriller and the able star cast pulls it off well.

Cut to Kovai, there is Kreshna a college student. He falls for Swathi, a classmate of him. Investigations reveal shocking details and Prakashraj apprehends Kreshna for the killings. Why he does them form the crux.Prakashraj and Kreshna do a wonderful act.
They add essence to the story with their performance.Kreshna is tailor-made for the role. Swathi is cute Yuvan Shankar Raja adds more pep to the proceedings with his music. All said the movie is worth a watch for its puzzles and how it does it.
