Movies Review: Aiyyaa

Movies Review: Aiyyaa: The movie is an expression of surprise in Marathi. Unfortunately it turns out to be a shock in Hindi. The movie is boring and can put you to sleep.

Meenakshi (Rani Mukherji) is an average Marathi girl from Pune and her middle-class family is in search of a groom for her. Meenakshi starts liking Surya (Prithviraj) plainly because he smells good. Surya is an artist in his own world and is indifferent towards everything. After much dreams by Meenakshi, Aiyyaa ends up in a situation where the girl runs away from her mandap to be with the man of his dream and finally gets him.

There is no chemistry between the couple except the sensuously shot dreamy item songs. Every attempt by the director has been made to add humour, but it falls flat miserably.

Rani Mukherji adds extra energy in the movie with her acting skills, but you will certainly stop rooting for her character after a while. Prithviraj is emotionless with few dialogues in the movie. Subodh Bhave as Rani's future husband is decent in his role. Ameya Wagh as the younger brother acts good in his role.

Aiyyaa turns out to a shock with the story much over stretched. The songs are the only plus point in the movie. Bollywood Paradise gives Aiyyaa 1.5 stars out of 5!
