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.

Truly a Romantic Journey
3 August 2014 | by vishnu-vg1984See all my reviews

Perfection in everything.. be it the songs, stunts, cinematography, action scene or anything.. perfection is there, and there are no twists or negative blockages, and the I felt Paiya a complete entertainer..

The film is a romantic journey. Right from the start, the film will evokes the sublime feelings of romance and it prevails the entire film. The action scenes and stunts are quite amazing, and one of the scenes liked is the stunt scene just before the interval..

Between the journey there are mind blowing songs, which intensify the romantic bliss. There are no complex twists or negative feelings or blockages and the film is ending with a positive climax.... Mindblowing film... Thanks to N.Linguswamy and team for offering such a great film..
