Yatchan is a 2015 Tamil-language action-comedy film directed by Vishnuvardhan and produced by UTV Motion Pictures. The film stars Arya and Krishna Sekhar as two small-time criminals, who are accidentally embroiled in a larger conspiracy involving a political party and the underworld. The film also stars Deepa Sannidhi, Swathi Reddy, and Adil Hussain in supporting roles.

The movie follows the tale of two petty thieves, one a kleptomaniac and the other a compulsive gambler, who by coincidence cross paths in their journey to get rich quick. However, their bickering over a chance encounter with a woman they both like ends in a brawl and in their arrest, put together in the same jail cell.

Their lives take an unexpected turn when they are offered a large sum of money by a mysterious stranger to kidnap a woman named Shwetha (Deepa Sannidhi), who turns out to be the lead actress of a popular television soap opera. But, things don't go according to plan as they are ambushed by a group of men seeking to kill Shwetha. As they escape, they discover that they have stumbled into a much larger conspiracy involving a political party and underworld dons.

As they try to unravel the truth behind the conspiracy, they get caught up in a web of deceit, involving double-crossing, corruption and treachery, unlocking the secrets of the intertwined fates and histories of various characters.

Arya and Sekhar turn in strong performances as the two lead protagonists, demonstrating their comedic abilities and chemistry on-screen. Deepa Sannidhi as the TV actress in distress is also impressive, depicting a range of emotions from vulnerability to strength with ease.

The film boasts of well-executed action sequences with slick cinematography, accompanied by a pulsating background score that builds up the intensity of the plot. The film's humorous moments are well-timed, with the perfect blend of witty one-liners and situational comedy that keeps the audience entertained.

While the plot may not be groundbreaking, the film keeps the audience invested in the central mystery, with enough twists and turns to keep them engaged until the very end. The film's climax will leave audiences on the edge of their seats, waiting to see how the plot is resolved and whether the two leads come out on top.

The music by Yuvan Shankar Raja is a highlight of the film with catchy and energetic numbers that add to the narrative. The film's visuals, courtesy of cinematographer Om Prakash, are striking, especially in the action sequences, elevating the film's production values.

Overall, Yatchan is an entertaining action-comedy that hits almost all the right notes. With a talented cast, excellent music, and well-executed action sequences, the film is a must-watch for fans of the genre. While it may not be on the same level of originality or complexity as some of director Vishnuvardhan's other works, it is still a fun and exciting ride from start to finish.
