Karthi (Shiva), an engineering graduate with an attitude, is on the look out for a job. He does not seem to be much serious in seeking employment while his friends try their best to settle him. He spots Tamannah (Charu) in a bus stop and it is love at first sight. He finds her on a couple of occasions later and in fact misses an interview in her pursuit. Destiny seems to have something good waiting for him and he gets to spend the most beautiful phase of his life, giving her a ride in the car while waiting to pick the owner of the car at the railway station. Life takes an exciting turn from this point for Karthi who accepts to drop her in Mumbai and thus begins Paiyaa's journey of romance, action and emotions on a highway with a few turns, some with caution and some without. Written by Sadiq khan

Awesome Love Story
15 January 2011 | by mujtabashareefSee all my reviews

I saw this movie recently in Telugu and loved it...It was a Fresh story and an Awesome silent love story.... loved it for its simple treatment and its awesome Music....

Karthik was awesome in the role of an Engineering graduate who falls for a simple girl whom he sees on the road, a true example of Love at First Sight.... Tamanna has never looked so beautiful and her styling was awesome, she has come a long way since Happy Days and her performance as Charu was awesome... Milind Soman dint had much scope to act in this movie..

Music is the biggest highlight of the movie and the songs were presented wonderfully on the Screen especially the "Aray Re Vaana" and "Nee Yadalo"... Aray re vaana had wonderful dance steps and they were wonderfully synchronized with the music and lyrics of the song... Yuvan Shankar Raja rocks... Hats off...

The Direction was awesome, This was my first Lingusamy movie after watching this I became his fan and would love to watch his movies...

Music.... 10/10, Performances... 8/10, Overall.... 8/10...
