A Aa Movie Review & Story
Anasuya Ramalingam (played by Samantha Ruth Prabhu) is unhappy with her severe mother (played by Nadiya) that orders and chooses everything in her life. She tries to do suicide but that doesn’t change her mom’s attitude. Anasuya desires for a change from the routine life and her father (played by Naresh) sends her to her aunt’s house. Anasuya meets her cousin Anand Vihari (played by Nithin) in the train and the ten days that she spends with his family changes Anasuya forever. Although she falls in love with Anand, he is previously engaged to some other girl (Anupama). So how do Anasuya and Anand overcome all the hurdles and make their love successful forms rest of the story.
Nithin: Nithin is perfect in the character of a boy next door with simple looks. He underplayed the role wonderfully. His presentation in the scene where he says about the bad experience of his family to Samantha is excellent. This is a tailor made character for him and he should be appreciated for taking up a story driven movie that doesn’t give much scope for his heroics.
Samantha and Others: After a so long time back Samantha got a role that provides her plenty scope to perform. She is enormously good as Anasuya Ramalingam, a girl caught in among her mother and lover. Anasuya will confidently be remembered as one of her best roles ever.
Anupama did well this role looks underdeveloped. Nadiya is suitable as the strict and unapologetic mother. Naresh make up for his well with his decent portrayal as hen-pecked husband. Rao Ramesh steals the show yet again. Ajay is good. Praveen got a meaty role and he did well. Avasarala Srinivas, Ananya, Hariteja, Shakalaka Shankar are aptly cast.
The basic plot of this film is inspired by Yaddanapudi Sulochana Rani’s novel Meena. Trivikram adapted it well and presented it in a way that it appeals to the contemporary audience. His dialogues are too good in this film. Although there is a lot of story to tell, Trivikram narrated it in an entertaining way without too much drama.
Micky J Meyer’s music is one of the biggest plus points. Ya ya, Rang de, Vellipoke Shyamala songs are shot well. Camera work by Natty is another plus point. The aerial shots of Pollachi are so pleasant. Editing is fine. Production values are rich. Technically A Aa is supreme with every department coming up with their best work.
Lacks emotional depth
Few threads are underdeveloped
A Aa has a very good plot and Trivikram executed it well without getting too much melodramatic. His style of presentation and characterizations will keep you entertained despite the lack of so called masala elements. A Aa is a wholesome entertainer that can be enjoyed with your whole family. It is a perfect summer film that gives your ticket’s worth of entertainment.
Trivikram has struck with the script and didn’t deviate from the plot for the sake of pleasing the masses. There is no overdose of action, emotion or comedy, but everything is offered in measured doses that could satisfy the majority of the audience. However, there is lack of depth in the emotional scenes.
Had Trivikram taken care of the emotional quotient, A Aa might have been a far superior film than what it is now. The lack of emotions is covered with right doses of entertainment though. Nithin and Anupama’s thread is not developed properly. There is a little bit of confusion about why Nithin is willing to marry her even though he doesn’t like her much. There are few hiccups and the screenplay meanders a bit in the middle, but everything comes on track by the end. Rao Ramesh’s satirical dialogues in the climax stands highlight of the film. Despite the flaws A Aa is a far better film than most of the films we have watched in the recent past. Go for it.
Final Verdict: Complete clean & neat family entertainer
