Film: 'Yogi'; Cast: Yogish, Biyanka Desai, Shirin, Suchayeendra Prasad, Praveen, Harshitha Poonacha and others; Producer: K. Manju; Director: Udaya Prakash; Music Director: Emil; Rating: **
'Yogi' has an ordinary story line with a tedious narration. The film starring Yogish has absolutely no freshness and the sequences are predictable.
Director Udaya Prakash has just thrown some commercial ingredients together instead of making efforts to write a sound script for the film. The result is that you have just an ordinary fare which is not entertaining at all.
The film lacks in every aspect of filmmaking except for the climax which is well executed.
'Yogi' starts with silly comedy sequences and later takes an interesting shape, but soon falls into a predictable line. It looks as if Prakash has completely lost grip on the script and has taken the viewers for granted. His claims of making an entertaining film falls flat.
Yogi is an underworld hireling who falls in love with Mala. Yogi works for Babu, a local don, and is very loyal to him. Mala lands in some problem and seeks Yogi's help to solve it.
Meanwhile, Yogi is on the hit list of Mumbai-based don K.K, who is in police custody. Babu is concerned about Yogi's safety and warns him. But Yogi says he is prepared for everything.
But K.K. traps Yogi and an enraged and confused Yogi kills his own boss. Now will Yogi succeed in getting his lover?
Yogish will get some appreciation for his dialogue delivery but he needs to choose his roles carefully. Biyanka looks glamorous. Suchayeendra Prasad's dialogue delivery is good but he looks tired throughout the film.
Emil's music is the plus point of the movie and camera work is also good.
'Yogi' is predictable fare with no fresh elements.
