Meenakshi (Rani Mukherji) plays a melodramatic young lady in
Aiyyaa, who is a complete movie buff and often slips into
the land of her dreams. Her parents gets her engaged to Madhav
(Subodh Bhave), but that doesn't stop Meenakshi from swooning over
tall, dark, handsome men. Her dream comes true and finally she
bumps into Surya (Prithviraj Sukumaran), a good looking painter.
Love happens instantly and Meenakshi falls head over heels for the
tall, dark, handsome Surya. Then comes a tough time for Meenakshi.
Her dreams comes crashing down. She gets sandwiched between two

What's So Good About The Film?
Aiyyaa is humorous and interesting. It's a treat to all
the Rani Mukherjee fans out there as it promises out and out
'Entertainment, 'Entertainment' and 'Entertainment'. The best thing
about Aiyyaa is that it balances well on both the aspects
of comedy and sensitivity. Kudos to director Sachin Kundalkar and
his ability to stumble upon humour in the most ordinary
Rani Mukherjee shines in her wakda role of a Marathi girl. She
does a fantastic job in Aiyyaa with her loud gags and
oodles of hamming. Malayalam actor Prithviraj Sukumaran is
convincing as a Tamil hunk. The best part is that he doesn't
hesitate even a bit with his Hindi dialogues. He looks dashing and
confident throughout the movie.
Aiyyaa treats us with some bizarre yet entertaining
tracks. One of those "Dreamum wakeupum" has a retro feel with
mashed up lyrics to give it a southern touch. Then comes, "Aga
bai", in which Rani flaunts her sensuous belly dancing skills. All
thanks to music director Amit Trivedi, for some brilliantly loud
and flamboyant music infused with typical Marathi folk music with
South Indian touch.
Watch or Not?
Go an watch out Rani Mukherjee mouthing some of the cheesiest dialogues in Aiyyaa. On the whole, the film is funny, wacky and entertaining and one of the best slapstick comedies of the recent times.
