Tamil version


The film was first reported in May 2015, when it was reported that Telugu director Tatineni Satya would make a bilingual Telugu and Tamil film with Sachiin J. Joshi and Esha Gupta in the lead roles, revolving around a kabaddi player who is sentenced to jail after being accused of murdering his girlfriend.[1] Despite the announcement, the film only began a year later in May 2016, with the team shooting a song in Poland soon after.[2] Titled Yaar Ivan in Tamil and Veedevadu in Telugu, production was completed in December 2016.[3]

Prior to the release of the film's first look in Tamil, the team kept the identity of the lead actor a secret and endorsed a competition where the public could attempt to guess the lead star to win a trip to Goa.


The soundtrack was composed by S. Thaman.

Critical receptionEdit

Tamil version

Times of India wrote "There is the potential for a good masala noir in the premise of Yaar Ivan, but the film wants to be much more. [..] But the problem is that these elements aren’t brought together into a wholly satisfying narrative."[6]

Telugu version

123Telugu wrote "On the whole, Veedevadu is a very ordinary crime thriller which has a few high moments here and there."[7]
