#Yaaram released on the 18th of October 2019, lays emphasis on the topics on Triple Talaaq and Nikaah Halala. The Indian government has recently announced Triple Talaaq to be illegal and this film is a sort of appreciation for the government. However, instead of getting serious about the topics, the makers of the film have tried presenting it through a romantic comedy. Moreover, #Yaaram stars some of the newest faces in Bollywood. The movie has got mixed reviews by the critics and the viewers after the release.
The movie stars Prateik Babbar, Ishita Raj Sharma and Siddarth Kapoor in the lead roles. They have tried their best to present the concept of the film before the audience in a hilarious manner but they have failed terribly. They have acted on very serious topics but the story and the script do not go well for them.
At the end of the movie, the real message of the film is conveyed by Shakti Kapoor. This is abrupt and is another go down the way for the film which seems to be inserted there without any use and forgetting the background.
#Yaaram considerably lacks in screenplay and scriptwriting. The story has been written ineffectively where many elements make no sense at all. You will find meaningless flashbacks and mainstream dialogues all throughout the movie and at most of the places, they could have replaced something much more sensible and effective. Editing is another major loophole, and at many places, you would notice cuts and jumps that are hard to explain. Bad screenplay and back cinematography and editing make the movie a great disappointment to the audience.
The actors of the film have proved themselves in their earlier films. Ishita Raj has already proved herself in Pyaar Ka Panchanama ! and 2. But she couldn’t do much in #Yaaram. Nonetheless, she is able to maintain her glamorous look and image in this film as well. But her character is not framed properly in the film so she couldn’t do much. This film seriously proves that even talent needs proper screenplay and stage to show up.
Even Prateik Babbar is the same. No doubt he is able to bring glamour on the screen and is a boon to the eyes. He brings charm and glamour on the screen all by himself. Moreover, he flaunts his body too much. He literally goes shirtless at any moment through the film perhaps only to show off her body. With the kind of confidence he exudes, it won’t be wrong to say that his talent remains untapped in the industry, barring projects such as Jaane Tu Ya Jaane Na or Mulk. Siddhanth Kapoor, son of Shakti Kapoor, lacks the screen presence of his father. It is hard to care for his performance.
Though the film comes under the genre of a romantic comedy, the film majorly lacks good comedy timings and instances. So, even if you are in a mood of watching a simple, light comedy. # Yaaram is not for you. The movie is full of cliched dialogues and fails to arouse interest or attract the audience towards the screen.
One thing good about the film is that the film ends as soon as the message is delivered. It does not drag much. However, the climax is not appealing could have been much more dramatic and interesting.
Overall, #Yaaram is basically a skip. If you want value for money, you will be seriously disappointed by the film.
