An aspiring, ruthless politician Rudhra (Trisha), who would go to any extent to fulfill her dreams, is the girlfriend of Yogi. However, there arises a situation when Yogi and Rudhra contest each other for an assembly seat in their constituency. The twist is that Yogi gets murdered. Who is behind Yogi Murder?, What will Dharma do ?..forms story.
Dhanush shines in his role as Yogi, which is packed with enough celebratory moments with subtle punch dialogues that actually work. Trisha was a revelation in the antagonist role. She performed well. Anupama of Premam fame deserves kudos for her decent debut and she has given her best into the role. Saranya Ponvannan as usual sleepwalks with usual pattern of mother role.
Santhosh Narayanan’s background score is lovely and accentuates the mood of the film at crucial junctures. Venkatesh’s camera has superbly captured the outdoor locations of Pollachi, where the film is entirely set against.
Director R S Durai Senthilkumar has given his career best movie. The 1st half is good while the pace in second half is slow.
Overall, DharmaYogi is an enjoyable commercial film from Durai Senthil Kumar with strong characterizations, best performances and above average technical quotients, it manages to win the attention of general audiences.
