Dreamum Wakeupnum critical conditionum!!!

To all those Bollywood freaks, “Aiyaa” will not be your cup of tea. This ain’t a review rather a critic!!! Do not even look for any positive reviews. I am not a bollywood freak; neither do I know why I ended up watching “aiyaa” on first day first show. Total boredom! In addition, I felt like banging head on the wall during the ¾ of the film OVER. So hope you understood how I felt with the film.

From the beginning of the film, Rani dancing to the tunes of once-so-popular-heroines Sreedevi , Juhi and Madhuri old classic songs made me think, “okk may be this is yet another good movie of Rani”! Rani plays a dreamy girl looking for real love. Instead of love, lust begins in her with the smell of a South Indian person. A quirky love story of a Maharashtrian girl falling in love with the scent of South Indian man. I know that is totally bullshit. Believe me that is the story all about. Sniff! Sniff!

Meenaxi Deshpande aka “ever-so-bubbly” Rani Mukerji displays the brouhaha surrounding of an arranged marriage setup as preferred by parents in Indian society and the female protagonist’s contradictory concept of marrying the man she loves.

The twists and turns enter the plot when Meenaxi announces her plans to settle down with a handsome ‘dusky man’ Suryaa (Prithviraj) even as she is engaged to a Marathi person Madhav (Subodh Bhave) chosen by ‘her parents’.

A huge garbage bin at the entrance of the house makes no sense. By the end of the film, I thought they would do some justification or explain why a dustbin right in the entrance of house. A father fiddles with 20 old phones and smokes 3 to 4 cigarettes at a time. An eccentric mother thinks about Meenakshi aka Rani’s Marriage in the whole film. A blind grandmother with long open grey hair and golden denture set roams in a motorized wheelchair screeching songs and slogans in the house. A dog-lover mad brother makes out with a girl in a bunny costume. A colleague that dresses like Lady gaga and dances on a table in college. There are so many things in it and so much that it tries to convey such that it ends up showing only pieces of what could have been a sweet love story or a mad comic caper or an autoerotic lunatic’s story. The movie carries from shot to shot, insidious showing a song, and then cutting to a dialogue abruptly becoming funny. Was it hilarious?

Rani does a ‘lavani’, a belly dance, a Silk Smitha dance number and a bit of here and there hip shakes and puts her heart into each of these songs. The belly-dancing act of the actor is worth applauding. However, the story makes it so dramatic that her acting swings from exaggerated comedy to serious dialogues and leaves you confused about the character. Why a fine actor like her should try to impress the audience with such a movie?

Prithviraj making his debut in Hindi movies as a fine figure. Relating Prithviraj as the “dark Salman Khan”, in which angle, did you feel he is dusky? He is pure eye candy in this film that I admit. However, the fact is he does not have much of a role or action in the film. Moreover, I wonder why he did such a film to make an entry to the Bollywood. His six-pack body created a helluva in the film that might attract some more ratings from female fans!  Yeah definitely, I would give thumbs up for the hard work that has gone behind to portray a man of Meenakshi’s fantasy. But don’t you think it is too much for a silly love story which far from reality that never would happen?

One of the doubts that strikes me is the bizarre character of the colleague Anita Date aka Lady Gaga. Why does she need an extra fitting proclined tooth in the front? What does the character indicate? All people in this film are somehow loose just except the main two actors which is also……… Does it make any sense?

The best part of the film are the songs because they just add up some hilarious seductive tones “aiyaaa” and some tadka beats of South Indian masala to Marathi numbers, ‘Dreamum Wakeupum’, ‘Aga bai’and ‘Sava Dollar’ !

A onetime watch and an entertainer for few minutes or else you should be in the mood of watching it for 2.5 hours.

My ratings: 3.5/10 which is solely due to Rani’s Belly dancing and may be Prithvi muscle body: O

Dreamum wakeupum critical conditionum!!! Definitely a critical condition…

Here are the lyrics of the song:
Dreamum wakeupum critical conditionum
Earthum quakepum hil dool sab shake upum

Face to faceum dharti putram
Top to baseum kama sutram
Thighsum thunderum downum underum
Sizeum matterum thinkum wonderum
Jumpingum, pumpingum
Throbbingum, thumpingum???? Lol!
Wune runde mune naale

Heart beatnum dhol peetnum
Love lust double kasht bada dheetnum
Body heatnum hot seatnum
Calling fire brigade bhi defeatnum
Same to sameum dil me utarum
Top to baseum kama sutram :O

Thighsum thunderum downum underum
Sizeum matterum thinkum wonderum
Jumpingum, pumpingum
Streelingum, purlingum
Wune runde mune naale… Totallyy!!
