Aiyyaa Movie Reviews
Here are the reviews for Aiyya:
Ratings:3.5/5 Reviewer: Taran Adarsh Site:Bollywood Hungama
AIYYAA takes on a novel premise and transports you to an altogether new world. AIYAA is a desi film at heart. Also, quirky and funny. What sets it apart is that this Maharashtrian girl - Tamil guy prem kahani [Rani, Prithviraj] is woven around the concept of smell/aroma. Also, a lot many middle class girls feel suffocated when they can't choose the guy they want to spend the rest of their life with. In AIYYAA, the girl chooses her own groom, defying her family's choice. But AIYYAA is not a serious take on the institution of marriage. It's an amusing journey, actually. On the flipside, it takes time to get the hang of things. Also, the first half seems stretched, with a few unnecessary sequences adding to the run time. But the second hour more than compensates for the deficiencies. .On the whole, there are reasons aplenty as to why AIYYAA becomes a deserving watch. It's arresting, amusing, entertaining and of course, thoroughly enjoyable, with Rani's splendid act, refreshingly different plot, winsome songs, pleasant humor and terrific moments as its aces. Don't miss it

In Aiyyaa, a carefully crafted amalgamation of Bollywood kitsch and absurd, over-the-top story-telling, writer-director Sachin Kundalkar almost achieves a fine balance, a dramatic perfection, careful never to alienate his viewer. But for the loose and meandering lead-up to the climax in the last half hour—the film should have been at least 20 minutes shorter to leave the viewer on a powerful note—Aiyyaa has a strident imagination at work. It is a raucous and immensely enjoyable piece of film-making

The Deshpandes are no ordinary brood. And Aiyyaa is no ordinary film. Wildly wakda (read twisted) in more ways than one, it is a film that defies definition. It careens from the dreamy to the delirious, the realistic to the raucous, and the perfectly logical to the utterly nonsensical as it turns many a time-honoured convention of Hindi commercial cinema on its head.

It is hard to fathom what an award winning director like Sachin Kundalkar was thinking when he set upon himself the task to make a film like ‘Aiyyaa’ after proving his mettle in a Marathi film called ‘Nirop’ and bagging a National Award as a screenplay writer for ‘Gandha’. Perhaps, Sachin woke up one day with an idea to portray the story of a typical single and ready to mingle middle-class girl who’s waiting for her Mr. Right but in reality ended up spoiling the film (and thereby torturing us - the audience) in his attempt to pull off a supposedly off-beat film.

It’s time for comebacks. With Sridevi creating a worthwhile impression last week, Rani Mukerji and Manisha Koirala battle it out this week with Bhoot Returns and Aiyyaa releasing on the same day. Preity Zinta is all set to mark her return with Ishkq in Paris.
National award winning Marathi director Sachin Khudalkar spins a tale around a wacked-out (wakda) family in his first attempt at Hindi cinema and he does it with a clash of Marathi and Tamil cinema. While stereotypes rule the character sketches, the actors help carry an otherwise clichéd screenplay.
Yaaargh. Eyes hidden by white plastic framed goggles, she makes the brain boggle. Hey lady, take it easy. Phooey, why the tsunami of take-offs on the widely-adored songs-'n'-dances of Madhuri, Sridevi and Juhi? No dhak dhak here, only yuck yuck.
