Ah Aah


SJ Surya has got the reputation as a good screenplay writer, similar to the lines of K Bhagyaraj, whom he tries to emulate in double-meaning dialogues and some controversial scenes as well. He managed to overcome his shortcomings in his previous three movies, but in this one, he falls terribly short in almost all the fronts.

Story? Is revealed by Surya himself right at the beginning of the movie and in the trailer. One has to really wonder his wisdom, since he doesn’t have a nice screenplay to back such a wafer-thin, really old story. Shiva (Surya) and Madhu (Nila) are lovers living together. Shiva is a journalist working hard to try and maintain a good living. When Madhu decides to run a restaurant with her friend’s brother to ease the pressure off Shiva, he doesn’t like it and thanks to a series of splats, they separate. The rest of the movie is on how their thoughts, clad in a blue costume, unite the lovers.

It’s a big surprise how the two, who are as different as chalk and cheese (literally) can fall in love and even ‘exist’ together. The chemistry between them is awful and from the beginning, there is more repulsive force we feel than any attraction. The reason for the couples’ separation is sooo silly and vulgar. The post-separation part also disappoints, with nothing ‘new’ in the proceedings.

We heard the dialogue from Prakash Raj in Anniyan “MGR pathirukkenn…..”. It suits for Surya’s performance in Ah Aah too, but in a totally opposite way. He overacts as all four of them, and many others too. He is unbearable at most scenes. His hairstyle is horrible. Nila just looks good in some scenes. All she has is some resemblance to Simran in some angles. Nothing more than a glamour doll. So many irritating characters sprinkled along the movie add to the agony. All of Surya’s colleagues having something to influence his life, thoughts and provide some turning points is total lack of imagination.

Song picturizations have been a huge let down. This would be one movie AR Rehman would repent for having composed some good numbers. Camera work with ‘blue’ being the predominant color in the second half pains the eye at times. Choreography by Brinda is less than imaginative.


Surya would have probably thought that ‘New’ was his success story. He didn’t realize that it was Simran’s show. He cant afford to take the audiences for granted with this kind of no-brainer. Recommendations: To Surya – Better work behind camera; To janta – Stay away from this movie.

I didn't like the way the 'marankothiyae..' song was shot. The end result was my post of last friday, as you know....

his makeup in 'mayilerage' was too horrible....

Raju said...

Ram, yeah, I agree with you.. and Surya was so proud that he shot the song very differently, like kids' video games.. Kevalam..

Yeah, I very well remember your post.. i remembered it a lot when I saw all the songs.. onnu kooda uruppadiya ille.. paavam Rahman, azhudhiruppar partha..

tt_giant said...

enna raju, veydhaalam thirumba murunga maram yeriduchu polarukke?.

I am referring to Chappel's email abt. Ganguly.

Raju said...

Mm... Deepak, unga kitte irundhum Nitin kitte irundhum idhu pathi comment-ai edhirparthenn....

First thing in the morning when I saw the news, I was really shocked. But, I understood that Greg is not someone not to call a goose a goose. Indha veydhaalam murunga marathai vittu irangave illai-nnu thonudhu... Innum yaar yaar thalai ellam urutta pogudho..

tt_giant said...

Now they HAVE to decide one between the 2. aneygama ganguly gaali nu nanaikaren.

Raju said...

Yes Deepak.. my thought exactly.. things have gone so much out of hand that these two cant co-exist anymore.. Common sense says Ganguly has to go, but let us see how the board handles this issue.

The details in the e-mail are shocking.. Indian thatha madhiri Greg oru thudappathai eduthu clean panna arambichuttar.. konjam kashtama irundhalum namma team improve aganumna vere vazhiye illey..

Nitin said...

i agree the movie sucked big time, and NEW ran because of Simran. This movie just plainly sucked. how could they be a couple? after watching that movie, i just hate sj.suryah's voice, i dont know why he decided to be a hero. and too much computer graphics in this movie, spoiled all the songs. atleast in NEW, the songs were picturized well. hopefully he doesn't make any movies like this where he is the hero.

Nitin said...

yeah, i support Chappell. he is trying to help out the indian team, Ganguly should be kicked out of the team, but politics plays a big part in it. If they dont kick out Ganguly, I think Chappell would say "Neenga achu onge team achu, ekkadu ketu ponge, na edhanu vera nalla teamku poi coach pannaren".

Raju said...

Nitin, totally agree on Ah Aah. This sucked big time. Surya's voice, dialog delivery, facial expressions, body language everything was awful. I didnt like the songs of "New" but they were shot well, as u said... whereas in this one, good songs were completely screwed up by him. It is very difficult to believe he is the same guy who directed "Vaali" which had one of the best romances in the last 10 years or so..


About cricket, I too support Chappell.. I think Ganguly saw it coming, thats why he created that fuss last week to create some sympathy.. Now, his future rests on the new BCCI board. There are some who are trying to make it an issue of our "colonial hangover" mindset and asking questions like "Now Ganguly.. who next?". If you read the interview given by Greg, he is clear that the team is more important to him than individual players. So, if he feels that it is better for Dhoni to replace Dinesh karthik in the test side, I would surely welcome that idea to give a try. Just because I am from TN, I will not/ should not get attached to Karthik and foul-cry. Our Indian janta has to get such a mindset.. no regional quotas or whatever. He is from Australia, where past records make no sense if the present team looks jeopardised by one player's non-performance. Much better players like Mark Waugh, Mike Slater, David Boon, Steve Waugh (from ODI team) and Darren Lehmann have been shown the door that way and the team has moved on. Even now, a Damien Martyn has been dropped to prove his worth. In this competitive world, no one can feel 'secure' unless he/she performs upto the task. So, no point saying that the players always fear of being dropped and feel insecure kinda BS..

Narayanan Venkitu said...

I'll never watch any Surya movies. I hate people who make semi-porn...and IMHO I feel Surya's movies are like that. I don't like double meaning dialogues.

I cannot stand this guy...looks like a local porukki.!!

Thanks for the review.!

Raju said...

Narayanan, I wish this movie flops sooo badly that surya will never think of directing movies like this. He indeed looks like a big porukki.. but padathule panra alimbu thaanga mudiyale..

Yaan petra thunbam perakkoodaathey indha vaiyagam !!

So many BIASED comments all over..so what Suryah acts in a movie..does face matter? there are many other movies with worst possible screenplays..people,try to appreciate his efforts ,if not rather stay off his films than ridiculing his effort in putting together in the frame..semi-porn ?As if nothing much is revealed in Bollywood movies which also relies on flesh than story..

Finally, i know you ppl abroad watched this movie on some pirated dvd, or downloaded websites..and you still talk about need for ethically and morally clean movies..Introspect yourselves...

-Ambi

Raju said...

Ambi, welcome aboard. If you read my review, you would realize that nowhere have I mentioned about his face. True, there were many 'worse' movies but I didnt see them probably due to the lower star-value or expectations. There were some expectations on this movie after the three hits that he delivered. I infact liked Surya in New. He looked innocent, fitting perfectly to the role.

BTW, did you watch this movie? You cant just sit and watch it.. Try yourself. There is absolutely nothing in it to appreciate. See, every film-maker puts in 'some efforts' in making a movie. When he goes totally out of frequency with the public's likings, the movie flops. He obviously hasnt put as much as effort as he put in his previous movies, so such a bad result.

I didnt mention about the semi-porn or whatever in this movie. And, no point in comparing with bollywood movies. I am certainly proud that Tamil movies usually are far better in one or more of story, screenplay, performance, technique, music and song picturization. Ah Aah fails in all aspects. Bad choice of all the above mentioned.

Again, I didnt talk about ethics or clean movies. (Are you posting the same comment for so many blogs which talk about all the things that you mention?)

Nitin said...

god, people in kolkata are burning pictures of gregchappell because of the rift between him and ganguly. why do people act like this? why can't they look at the stats and see for themselves how this guy is performing in recent times? the more i read articles on cricinfo, im learning the true nature of ganguly, all this time i just thought this poor guy is out of form, thats all, but he seems like a unsportive person, who wants to cling to his captaincy until he dies, and he is just acting like he cares for the entire team.

Raju said...

Nitin, how long since u r in US? Burning effigies and pictures is a very common thing in India. Two weeks ago, when Kaif was not included for the tests, his fans in Allahabad burnt the effigies of Ganguly. These people cant look at stats and stuff.... There are lots of places in India where fans are literally 'mad' about cricket. Highly contradictory to Tamils. Remember the '96 WC semifinal and '99 Pak Test at Kolkata? Bengalis are highly emotional and they cant digest defeat. Crowd behavior from Gujarat to bengal, through Delhi, would be highly volatile if things dont go well. You might have heard of the recent controversy of Flintoff being 'shot' with some plastic pellets (supposedly) in a ODI at Delhi. I am not surprised. we have a long way to go in this aspect.

Yeah, from what I am hearing from different journalists' articles, they seemed to be waiting for Ganguly to make a blunder to bring out all the 'stories' they had known of him, but were hesitant/scared to make them public for the fear of lack of authentic proof. It seems, after seeing the greentop wicket at Nagpur during the Aus test series last year, he faked an injury and stayed out of the match. He didnt allow the team physio to test him. The physio's report until the previous day was that he was actually perfectly fine. Dravid got so upset with Ganguly that he didnt speak to him for a while before Wright set things straight between them.

Nitin said...

no, i know that they do this all the time, burn effigies of people that they dont like. but wat pissed me off is they dont look at the news, or get the facts straight. we do have a long way to go, but how long and when is it goin to start, people act stupid. anyways, i shouldn't be gettin upset over this, i just hope Ganguly gets kicked off the team, and Chappell coaches Indian team, and makes them the best team for the tournaments, and the coming world cup. I just hope Ganguly's negative influence doesn't break apart the team, and lose some valuable players like Dravid.

Raju said...

Nitin, no matter how many runs ganguly scores from now on (in fact, for quite some timenow).. since he is 'the most successful captain of India' and blah blah blah, it is his birthright to captain India as long as he wishes. See, Ganguly has got names like prince of Kolkata, Bengal tiger, Maharaja etc. The bengalis are very proud of Bengali achievers (rightly so, they have had some great scientists like Bose, legends like Tagore and Nethaji) but recently they have had nobody as 'hero' and then came Ganguly out of wilderness and within 4 years of re-entry into the team, got to captain the team and the team did quite reasonably well. They will never ever allow and accept any attack on Ganguly. Thats why effigies are burnt. If he is sacked, better we dont have games in Kolkata for quite sometime.. They will be waiting to literally crucify Chappell and whoever said anyting against Ganguly. Remember Gavaskar-Eden Gardens relationship?

You would have read the full contents of the e-mail. Here is the link: http://www.dnaindia.com/report.asp?NewsID=3277 The contents are shocking, esp. the Laxman part. Let us see what happens on Tuesday.

tt_giant said...

Raju: In the email, chappel mentions that some of the bowlers have been getting special treatment. Immediately, Bhajji has leapt in defense of Ganguly. Putting 2 and 2 together?.

If ganguly agrees to what SRT said: dressing room matters should remain in dressing rooms, why the hell did he open his mouth then?.

Raju said...

Deepak, IMO, not only Bhajji, Zaheer is also referred under the 'spl. treatment'. When I analyze things, we have had quite a lot of bowling options in the last year or so: Irfan, Zaheer, Nehra, Agarkar, Balaji in pace and Kumble, Bhajji and Kartik in spin. That is 8 for the place of 4. All 8 are world-class and almost same category and any of the four can be picked for a given ODI. So, this stiff competition sometimes results in some personal choices for different people (the two different coaches and two captains we had over the past year).

About Ganguly's comment on Sachin's remark, it is obviously self-contradictory.. He wouldnt have liked to invite more trouble by going into that matter.

Anonymous said...

Ambi,
Are you S.J Surya pretending to be Ambi? Cos I see no need to support that man to this extent.

Srini

Nitin said...

so, the recent news is Jagmohan Dalmiya leaked the email from Chappell. No wonder,he is trying to protect Ganguly. It would be great if both Dalmiya, and Ganguly are asked to leave.Dalmiya is definitely a corrupt person. I like attitude of the former BCCI president Dungarpur.

Raju said...

Srini, :-) I had that doubt too.. Will Ambi speak out?

Nitin, that news has to be taken with a pinch of salt. It was an accusation by Dungarpur, who is the worst enemy of Dalmiya and also a main person in the current BCCI election proceedings. I think he just used this controversy to make such a claim. Just politics. May be true, but he doesnt have any proof.

Ganguly can be asked to leave, but not Dalmiya. Even if his side loses this election, he will do enough politics to come back in some form or the other. Already, he is the chairman of the 'Asian Cricket Council' and 'Cricket Association of Bengal'. Money flows pretty deep.. if there is a strong consensus against Ganguly, then Dalmiya wont risk his interests for Ganguly and would do nothing to prevent it.
