Movie Review: ‘Aiyyaa’ does not ‘smell’ good!

Aiyyaa makes you go ‘Ouch’ with its weirdness

The ApunKaChoice movie review of Aiyyaa. In the current times of The Dirty Picture and English Vinglish, Aiyyaa, too, features a heroine as a hero! Touted to be a rom-com, Aiyyaa, sadly, neither tugs at your heartstrings, nor makes you laugh; the film is thus not a rom-com but leaves you with sheer bore-dom! In short, Aiyyaa is ouch!

Rani Mukerji plays Meenakshi, a middle-class girl who perhaps has the weirdest family in the world! A father (Satish Alekar) who smokes six cigarettes together, an extremely loud mother (Nirmiti Sawant), a younger brother (Amey Wagh) who plans to make money out of dogs, and a grandmother (Jyoti Subhash) who is blind (how we wish she was dumb too)!

While Meenakshi’s family is trying hard to find the right match for her, she, on the other hand, is busy weaving dreams and falling in love with Surya (Prithviraj Sukumaran)! Some people fall for good looks, personality, a caring heart, or perhaps bank balance, but Meenakshi falls for Surya because he smells good! Surya, however, is absorbed in his own artistic world. What happens to their unconventional love story? Well, we leave that for you to watch the film (if at all you do)!

The first ten-fifteen minutes of the film are somewhat watchable, but after that you keep waiting for the time to actually go wakda! What irritates one the most is the character of Meenakshi’s friend and colleague, played by Anita Date! She recreates a whole new super-ugly version of Lady Gaga and you will perhaps prefer watching Gaga’s recent video where she threw up on the stage rather than this unsightly character of Gagabai -- no fun whatsoever!

Speaking about the direction, Sachin Kundalkar does nothing special to leave a mark! His brand of comedy borders on the whacky, bizarre and, at times, repulsive humour, something that perhaps makes only him go wakda. His storytelling skills are amateurish at best and to top it all he piles on added misery upon the viewers with the bum-aching length of Aiyyaa.

Coming to the performances, one feels for Rani Mukerji! She tries her best to keep the audiences interested with her antics, but the weak plot of Aiyyaa, sadly, emerges the winner in this tug of war! It is after a long time that Rani is making a comeback as the lead actress and this is certainly not what her fans were expecting!

The apparent lead actor Prithviraj Sukumaran has nothing much to do in the film! By the time he starts talking, the film is about to end! All he does in the film is smell good; perhaps the film should have been released in Aromascope! Tee-hee!

Coming to the performances of Meenakshi’s family members, we think we should let it pass and try to forget it as a bad dream inside a nightmare on a Halloween night! Not that their acting is awful, it’s just that their characters are singularly irksome.

The only saving grace of Aiyyaa is the music of the film and Rani Mukerji’s gyrations; be it Dreamum Wakeupum or Aga Bai, the Bong actress throws herself headlong into the bump and grind routine, the pelvic thrusts and bosom heaves to be greeted with wolf whistles. But well-danced songs alone don’t a film make.

Comedy is a serious business, something that Aiyyaa flounders at! We would give it half-a-star extra for Rani Mukerji. For us, Aiyyaa definitely does not smell good! Watch Aiyyaa only if you are die-hard fan of Rani!

Final verdict - 1 cheer and 4 jeers for this one!
