Aaha Kalyanam is the scene by scene remake of the Hindi blockbuster film Band Baaja Baaraat by Yash Raj Films. Debutant director Gokul Krishna has accommodated their requirements to the tee. Hero Nani is an uninvited guest in a wedding where Vani the heroine is the marriage arranger. The duo start their relationship with a quarrel, subsequently Nani falls head over heels for Vani after witnessing her scintillating dance.


Vani is clear about turning a marriage assembler after her education and in this agency Nani joins as a partner. Now how the two break up and if the couple comes back together is the reminder of the story.


Nani is unable to get over his strong Telugu accent yet his effort to speak in Tamil has covered up all the minuses. There is even a dialogue in the film commenting on his Telugu accent. Nani’s next door boy look is a plus for the actor and his performance is natural. Vani Kapoor is admired for her professional acting and none can imagine that she is a newbie in Kollywood. Her dance moves are amazing especially the belly dance. The movie revolves around the two, though the supporting actors have done their job well, none come to mind.


The story is a bit different and this conceals the slow pace of the film. The second half is very predictable and hence the film lack curiosity.


Music is by Tharun Kumar, the Mazhaiyin Saaral song and the punch song are etched in the memory. The BGM is good. The work of Cameraman Loganathan Sreenivasan can be kept on the same pedestal as the director of the film. It is not easy to remake a blockbuster movie and in this context director Gokul Krishna has done a great job without any drop in the interest level.


Aaha Kalyalam is a Carnival
