Aaha Kalyanam is a romantic comedy movie with a high entertainment quotient. Nani and Vani Kapoor's performances are the main attractions in the film. Gokul Krishna's direction, Habib Faizal's engrossing screenplay, Rajiv Rajaram's witty dialogues, Dharan Kumar's music, Loganathan Srinivasan's cinematography, colourful costumes and art direction and beautiful locales are its other attractions. Overdose of songs in the first half and few dull scenes in the second half are its drawbacks.
The movie is a remake of Bollywood hit film Band Baaja
Baaraat, which is about a slacker-collegian, who partners with
career-minded girl and achieve success in wedding planner business,
but their differences turn them into bitter rivals. The director
has taken the soul of the original and dealt it as per the taste of
South Indian audience. But his work would impress Tamil audience
more than Telugu as it is mere dubbed version and lacks local
Shruti (Vaani Kapoor) is 20-something no-nonsense girl from
middle class. Focused and determined with pre-planned ambitions,
her goal in life is well laid out by the time she reaches her final
year of college. On the other hand, Shakti (Nani) has no real aim
in life. As a final year college student, he spends his life having
fun with his friends.
A chance and opportune meeting or fate brings the two of them
together on a tumultuous journey where they become partners in
their very own wedding planning business. However, the rules are
clear: Finance and romance can never go hand in hand. Together,
they see the ups and down of the lavish Chennai weddings. And while
trying to find themselves, Shruti and Shakti discover each other
and realise that rule book cannot be followed always.
As a wayward boy, Nani has given wonderful performances in
Aaha Kalyanam and he impresses the viewers with his comedy
timing and witty dialogue delivery. Actress Vaani Kapoor, who is
entering South Indian film industry with Aaha Kalyanam,
has lot of scope for performance and she has done a good job. In
her first attempt, she has made sure that she impresses South
Indian audience with her glamour and acting. Others have also done
justice to their roles.
Aaha Kalyanam has sound production values and Dharan
Kumar's music and background score are the main attractions in the
technical front. Loganathan Srinivasan has done wonderful
picturisation in song sequences. Bavan Sreekumar's editing is good.
Costumes, art direction and other art technical departments have
also delivered commendable job.
Overall, Aaha Kalyanam is good comedy entertainer,
which members of family can watch together. Since it has Tamil
scent in every aspects, it may not impress the Telugu viewers.
