Joining the series of films this week is the Tamil film Yugi which hit the theatres earlier in 2022.

Yugi: Review

Yugi received mixed reviews from the critics and the audience. The film’s premise majorly sheds light on the plight of a young couple who suffer consequences due to power and economic exploitation. Reviewers stated that the film, despite being presented as an investigative suspense thriller, fails to keep the audience hooked to the screens as the writer keeps introducing layers to the film, eventually reducing the suspense. While there is potential for the Yugi to be an interesting watch, the narration of the film is weak, as only a few parts of the film get one to the edge of their seats.

IMDb Rating: 6.1/10
