Soon after the critically acclaimed `Nandalala', Mysskin has dished out a diagonally different film in `Yudham Sei'. It comes under detective thriller genre. The film was thought by many as a sequel to `Anjathey', but it no where near that. `Yudham Sei' is not a conventionally commercial film but has a lot for cultivated audience.
Story is simple. A CBCID officer is investigating an eccentric series of crimes happening in the city. His investigation leads him to the unexpected crime doers. The CID officer also has a motive to track the killers and the killers also have a strong reason to do what they do. In the end there is a surprise waiting. 
It is in the detailing and the gripping narration the film wins. Right from the first top angle shot of a rainy night, the first half is very absorbing and the twists and surprises will really hold you on to your seats. It gives a new dimension to detective genre in Tamil. Every move the investigating officer takes is intelligent for a change and you unquestionably travel along with him.
There are a lot of scenes to show Mysskin's touch through out the film. Like Cheran throwing the profiles of the officers who have been deputed to help him in the dust bin, the transitions in the sequence where Manikka Vinayagam story unfolds, the cleverly choreographed action sequence just before the intermission  and so on. The climax is very blood spilling but you don't see much blood spilling.
In the acting department it is Cheran's game all the way. As a helpless police officer who is trailing the killers for the sake of himself also is remarkably good. His delicate emotions, particularly in the scene where he is told of his sister being alive, his changing of expressions are class. Just as Mysskin categorically said before the release, even we say Cheran is the best choice for the role.
Even the supporting cast has done brilliant jobs in Yutham Sei. Y. Gee. Mahendra, Lakshmi Ramakrishnan, Jayaprakash, Selva, Marimuthu, E. Ramadoss, Yugendran and Manicka Vinayagam. Particularly Y. Gee. Mahendra, Lakshmi Ramakrishnan and Jayaprakash play crucial characters and they will shock and surprise you at the same time. In the climax scene you will see the best of all.
In the technical areas the cameraman Sathya and the music director K have worked as the right and left hands of Mysskin. The visual images are neat through the eyes of Sathya. In many follow through shots the placing of the camera was interesting particularly in scenes involving vehicles.
Music director K has played his heart out in the background score.  The violin bits that work as theme music are raw and riveting. The film has just one song and that is a typical Mysskin kuthu in the lines of `Kathala Kannale' and `Vaalameenukkum'. Director Ameer and Neetu Chandra dance relives you dancing to the song.
The only could have been done thing is a little trimming of the second half. The tempo that was built by the engrossing first half slows a bit in the second, although the climax scores.
 On the whole `Yudham Sei' is absolutely watchable just for Mysskin and his way of story telling.
