“Aiyyaa”: Quirky and Funny
Star Cast: Rani Mukherji, Prithviraj
Director: Sachin Kundalkar
Ratings: ** (2 out of 5)
Their is a buzz on internet that the movie “Aiyyaa” is a ‘fairy tale ‘of a middle-class Maharashtrian girl called Meenakshi played by Rani Mukerji, who yearned to be an actress but eventually settled down with a job in an art college.
In the film Meenaxi is under constant pressure from her parents, particularly her mother, to find a suitable life partner.
Talking about the star cast Rani plunges headlong into the character without the slightest hint of inhibition. Prithviraj impressed with his strong, silent screen presence, provides the perfect foil.
The first half seems stretched, with a few unnecessary sequences adding to the run time. But the second hour more than compensates for the deficiencies.
On the whole the movie its a entertaining and thoroughly enjoyable with Rani’s splendid act.
