Punchline: YSR Lives On!
Yatra is all about Y.S.R (Mammootty) walkathon to know people’s problem and how he transformed from a politician to people’s leader. Yatra can be termed as event wise biopic and primarily deals with his pada yatra except last few scenes where his death is portrayed briefly in a montage.
Yatra, that had decent pre-release buzz and impressed us with the promos released today. Mahi V Raghav, who delivered a hit with Anando Brahma has come up with an interesting story, the story about legendary leader’s walkathon that brought congress party to power. Mahi stayed true to the story and never deviates from it, however as it is only about Yatra you may feel the drag sometimes. However, the BGM is pretty good and elevates the emotions a lot. Mammootty needs a big shoutout for getting into the skin of YSR and nailed the performance. Yatra will be a feast for YSR fans and even neutral fans can give it a watch. However, we have to see it’s commercial success depending on how neutral movie goers embrace the movie.
