Aa Aah Movie Review

It is hard to believe that it is the same director who did “A Aah” did a “Vaali”. The premise of the movie does sound interesting but the screenplay especially the second half is a total mess up. From the very first scene in which he explains the story of the movie to the audience, you can see the over confidence of S.J.Suryah be it in acting or screenplay or direction. The first half of the first half is really boring but it gradually picks momentum and pre interval scene makes us to sit up and have a sigh of relief that our money has not gone waste. Characters of Illusion are visualized like Ghosts. How do the illusions get such super natural power to bring storm. As Suryah says in one of the scenes, he himself has got confused about the concept. It is very clear that he was struggling to take the story further. S.J.Suryah as an actor is irritating in every aspect. His exaggerated reaction spoils the show. He couldn’t make Nila to act either. The songs are not well placed and pictured. A.R.Rahman’s music has gone waste. Background score is okay with some nice theme cues. In spite of all these cons, acumen of S.J.Suryah does peep in sometimes through his dialogues and in the way he has conceived some episodes. The scene in which Suryah suspects Nila for having an affair with another guy as she cuts the call by finding Suryah entering the room. The pre interval scene in which Suryah fights with the Nila’s boy friend for him touching Nila’s body, The Suryah - Urvasi episode, the Suryah – Santhanam episode where Suryah explains to Santhanam about the illusion that only he can see are the best moments of the movie. The other good aspect of the movie is Cinematography by Venu. The different camera angles are used with a purpose in this movie. Anyway, this is yet another dud in a row after ONOK and OKK.

mysorean said...

Hi Suresh!

As usual, excellent review!

I am going to give this movie a miss. I missed "New" too.

I don't regard SJ Suryah very highly as an actor!

Good review!

Suresh,
I generally don't read reviews of movies i'm looking forward to watch but who cares about "Soft Porn" Suryah's movies....
If this one flops its the best thing happening to Thamizh cinema in recent times. High time Mr.Overconfident was put in his place :)

I felt everything in the movie tolerable except for Suryah bringing his face close to the camera often ... ;-) ...

Ridiculous movie ... no continuity ... confused concept - nambiar says "Oru dhadava dhaan solven, kettukanum, apparam pureelanu solla koodadhu .." but the director himself gets confused of the concept ..

Sorry suresh this is not a movie that deserved a review and your precious time

I think this movie could have been a great movie ..It had an amazing story line ,sufficent plot -points ,good music ..

But it is direction where SJ SUryah has failed miserably !!!The way he has shot the scenes is pathetic ..
Even a scene like where Sj Surya and Nila converse in the BEach and Sj Suryah adding those A jokes were nice - thats how it happens between two lovers ,to be frank !

But it was shot in a akward way that it irritates us so much !!! The A jokes should have been underscored and the feeling of closeness should have been brought up !!

Nila is so language conscious that it irritates so much !!


ARR is pathetic in BGM - but u can't blame him ,as the mood and character of Sj Suryah changes so quick that u will be bafffled in scoring for this movie !!!


Same with NEW - Amazing story line ,good music ..Totally screwed up by direction !!!

S.J. Suryah - please do not act any more. You are a great Director but a very lousy Actor, as your acting reminded me of your acting in "New". There was nothing new to your acting here. On the contrary it became very boring and very stale.

I was just browsing various blogs as I was doing a search on the word Aah, and I just wanted to say that I really like what you've done with your blog, even though it wasn't particularly related to what I searched for. I appreciate your postings, and your blog is a good example of how a blog should be done. I've only just recently started a Posters website - feel free to visit it when you get a chance if you wish. Much success, antonio.
