It is truly remarkable that how Silambarasan transforms into a balanced actor, when he is working with Gautham. The actor has surely delivered an impressive, controlled performance as the leading man of AYM.
Manjima makes a decent debut in Tamil, with her decent performance and charming screen presence in AYM.
Verdict A disappointing experience for the Gautham Menon fans who expect another classic. But, it is a one-time watch for the normal audiences.
A road trip on your favorite bike with a girl, what more would a guy ask for? Sounds like a musical and GVM makes sure it exactly is like that with all of AYM’s songs featuring in the first making very evident that the Oscar winning composer’s music is rightly utilized for the cream of the movie.
GVM’s strength lies in his immense trust on romance, he clearly has used Love again as the driving point of the movie. Simbu’s uncanny love puts him in a dangerous situation and is no joke to get out of it.
Verdict: AYM is like one of the bike rides that starts of like a dream, hiccups through midway but eventually reaches the destination in style with the help of lovable performances and music.
AYM is so smartly set at the beginning. Surprisingly GVM has attempted to make a film that appeals to all center audience, unlike his previous works. He has come out of his comfort zone and has tried to give a commercial appeal to his film.
GVM’s intention appears to be like giving a clean love story and some vigorous action. The movie manages to shift sensitively from breezy love moments to intense action mode just around the interval mark.
Verdict: AYM is GVM's attempt to give a well-balanced love action drama but it gets commercialized towards pre-climax. Had that also been dealt in GVM style, we might have had an even better product.
