Storyline

Wildly imaginative and film-obsessed, Meenakshi Deshpande has an extra sensitive nose. After she is hired to work in a local college's library, she catches a wonderful scent in the air. The source is Surya, a handsome and enigmatic art student from a Tamil family. Meanwhile, Meenakshi's eccentric Marathi family has arranged for her marriage to Madhav, a kind and sensible man. Meenakshi is torn between marrying her parents' choice for a seemingly ideal husband, or following her nose and chasing the hunky stranger who may or may not be all that he seems. Written by L. Hamre

A brave experimental Bollywood movie for all those who may be getting a bit bored of all the normality in their life
27 November 2012 | by (India) – See all my reviews

Caught up with Aiyaa this weekend. Every character in this movie is insane, and everything is overboard. And nothing from Bollywood before this has sent me into a 10 minutes long laughter fit than Maina (Anita Date), the craziest character ever invented by Bollywood. This film is the output of a really twisted Mind. Everyone overacts, but that seems to have been done deliberately and adds to the crazy feel of this.

This isn't typical Bollywood, and this isn't something Rani Mukerji or any Indian actress has done in the past. She does a Bindaas role, shakes it all up holding nothing back – and acts spectacularly. Prithviraj Sukumaran, the hero, is the only sane guy and pulls of his intense/ brooding character brilliantly. The movie moves slowly, but the story wasn't meant to go anywhere anyway. Music by Amit Trivedi rocks as usual.

This is a brave experimental Bollywood movie and I highly recommend it to all those who may be getting a bit bored of all the normality in their life. Forget all those movie reviews, most of which have totally panned it – their reviews are for masses… not you ;)

My Rating – 8/10 (From my Blog - http://www.rahulbalyan.com/2012/11/movie-review-aiyyaa/ )
