Storyline

Inbasekar, a hit man shoots Michael, a youth leader, off his motorbike on Napier bridge in Chennai. As Michael flies off his bike and falls into the river, bystanding student Arjun is the sole witness. The film then flashbacks into each of their lives, to bring things up to the present day shooting. Inba, the small-time thug dreams of making it big while his perky wife Sasi tries relentlessly to get him to go straight. Michael balances his idealistic posturing with his romance with a gutsy and occasionally unscrupulous neighbor Gitanjali. Siddharth must decide whether going to the US to study is more important than chasing after a girl he falls in love with in a bar Mira who incidentally happens to be engaged to be married.

Amores Perros- Desi Version
12 May 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

If you have seen Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu's Amores Perros (2000) then within the first 7 minutes of Aydha Ezhuthu you will know the structure of the story. One chance encounter that changes the lives of

three unknown characters ( marked evidently by a difference in class and ideals)is common to both films. However, unlike Inarritu's film, Ratnam keeps the story tight and less digressive, which is why Amores Perros is longer than the Indian version. I agree with the previous reviews that Madhavan steals the show in the film, unlike his previous sappy performances, unleashing gritty force yet inviting audience sympathy. There is something to be said about the collaboration between A R Rahman and Mani Ratnam though. Each time a political issue either deliberately or inadvertently becomes the topic of Ratnam's films, it reaches a point where it fails to find a practical solution. At this difficult moment , Rahman's music glides in, romantically diluting the entire gravity of the situation on screen. And hence the political idealism of Surya in Ayudha Ezhuthu finds its voice in the 'MTV' inspired beats and rhythms of Rahman's music.
