well taken mas-ala flick-a must watch
17 March 2008 | by kris1235813See all my reviews

the important aspect of yodha is its screenplay,actors,story and the technical crew.all were brilliant.the movie is really exciting,even though the main plot was from Eddie Murphy's golden child.one-thing worth watching the movie is the acting by mohanlal and jagathy sreekumar in which they have portrayed their role with gr8 brilliance.another important thin is the movies background score by AR rahman,which i thin one of his special one.even the songs are good and got a different flavour from AR rahman.the song padakaali sung by yesudas and mg sreekumar is one of rahman's most successful experimental songs.the movie is a perfect blend of humour and action.the plus point of Yoda with its original,is this perfect blend.camera work and direction was also good.the humour in this story doesnot put the main plot in to sides,but decorates it like cherry which is a huge more sweeter in a cake.if u are a fan of a cent percent entertainer,this is the movie 4 u.ACTUALLY A MUST WATCH.I HAVE WATCHED THIS MANY TIMES IDONOT KNOW HOWMUCH BUT EVERY TIME THE MOVIE IS AS FRESH AS NEW.
