Aaha Kalyanam is the remake of a successful Bollywood film Band Baaja Baarat and another specialty is that, with this film Yash Raj Films is making their debut in the South Indian film industry. The film is a bilingual and has been simultaneously made in Tamil and Telugu languages. Shruti (Vani Kapoor) thinks of becoming a millionaire through a business. In order to fulfil her dreams, she launches a small business.

The Tamil film, Aaha Kalyanam (Wow Wedding), by A Gokul Krishna is an exact remake of Bollywood's money-spinning Band Baaja Baaraat that had Ranveer Singh and Anushka Sharma playing wedding planners.

While the Hindi version had an element of authenticity, the Tamil work takes a beating here. As we all know, the business of blueprinting a marriage is highly popular in north India and in Mumbai - with many of the rich choosing to leave the chores associated with this kind of celebration to professionals.

In a sense, Aaha Kalyanam is an interesting, perhaps even important, film. In a cinema culture obsessed with virginity, it’s refreshing to light on Shruthi (Vaani Kapoor), who begins a wedding-planning business with Shakthi (Nani) and gradually falls in love with him.

After executing a big contract, they end up celebrating — with champagne. A woozy-headed kiss leads to sex, and she’s happy. But soon she discovers that he isn’t.
