    In the last couple of years, the concept of multi-track narratives has really come up in a big way. Though it increases the complexity of the film & challenges an average cine-goer’s IQ, it does have its share of benefits like more number of performers and more viable options.

    Yeh Mera India is a satirical take on India depicting it through every phenomenon that is a part of it today. N Chandra picks up an interesting idea & paints it through the point of view of his male protagonist , si,ilar on the lines of Tejaswini, that he created two decades ago.

    However, the problem with Yeh Mera India is, it bites into more than it can chew. The writers have tried their best to incorporate everything that is of a commom man’s concern today. And that results in a bagful of different characters making different points in different conditions about different things.

    It works fabulously at places & falls flat at times. But more importantly, it affects the narrative in its entirety as the audience is confused as to where to sit in rapt attention. And hence it just can't help reminding us of Mumbai Meri Jaan which too for all its merits & achievements dwelved in too many directions for the mass’s liking.

    The pitching too is tad too melodramatic at times which goes against the flow of the film. What actually stays in sync with the film is the ensemble cast & their effective performances. Almost everybody from the cast rises above the plot & contributes to the film in his own way. Splecial mention to Atul Kulkarni, Vijay Raaz & Rajpal Yadav, who prove that there are some roles only they can enact.

    The camerawork too is interesting & so are the dialogues (which though tend to get abusive occasionally)

    Final Verdict : Despite all its loopholes, Yeh Mera India shall be quite an interesting watch for the topics it covers though not completely convincing & for the bunch of maverick performers. It lets us enjoy within a span of 150 mins.

    Recommended but with reservations.
