There is quite a lot of hype and the early buzz surrounding Yaanai is also positive considering the film marks the big comeback of director Hari after his Saamy 2 in 2018. The film is incidentally the first-time collaboration for Arun Vijay with the hit filmmaker, who has also written the story, screenplay, and dialogues and will be looking to come out all guns blazing in delivering a solid commercial potboiler. Yaanai is also the second time Arun Vijay is paired opposite youth sensation Priya Bhavani Shankar after their 2020 film Mafia and the duo will want to hit the bullseye on this occasion.
Apart from Arun Vijay and Priya Bhavani Shankar, Yaanai has an incredible ensemble cast that has Radikaa Sarathkumar, Samuthirakani, Thalaivasal Vijay, Imman Annachi, Ammu Abhirami, Yogi Babu, Pugazh, Rajesh, Jayapalan, Bose Venkat, Rama, Aishwarya among others, with the technical team featuring names like chart-buster composer G. V. Prakash Kumar, cinematographer Gopinath, and editor Anthony. Yaanai has been announced to also be coming out in Telugu under the title Enugu and it will be refreshing to witness Arun Vijay amidst a full-fledged rural backdrop, with the film's intense and action-packed teaser released receiving strong feedback.
