Making a movie is a very risky stuff! Sometimes the things works for you and the film becomes a major hit, it doesn’t matter that what was the budget for the film or how many holes are there in the story or how many stunning performances the movie is associated with, or how melodious songs are associated with the same..!

Some ideas click and some don’t. Sometimes while watching the film we start feeling that the writer/screenwriter or director forgot the path from the middle of the way.
Aiyya – is a movie with fantastic performance by Rani Mukerji. Nice choreography in some of the song. A comparatively good music album. The movie is good technically. It really starts good with the songs of Madhuri, Sridevi and Juhi are performed fantastically by Rani. You can think of the same as the pick point of the film. And if starting is so good, you definitely look for even more positive stuff coming your way. And that is where the film fail justifying your expectations.
A Marathi girl named Meenaxi[Rani] is living with his middle class family. Her grandmother is wheelchair bound (and we should develop a sympathy towards her – but her character is having golden teeth and appears in a way that we think of something horrible – it might be try of director to generate some humor with the get-up, but it fails, at least for me). She has a younger brother who love dogs more than anything in the life! Her father is a chain smoker but the chain is very heavy (he used to smoke more than a couple of cigarettes at a time). Her mother is obsessed with the marriage of her daughter Meenaxi, it seems sole mission of her.
Meenaxi is having filmy fantasies about her marriage. A hero like Sunny Deol, Salman Khan, Shahrukh Khan, … (a long list) is what she is craving for. Meenaxi lives her life happily in her dreams. But the real world is the real world. She have to do a job too. There comes another character called Maina or “Gaga Bai”. Her appearance and style (which tries to make is funny – but fails) makes you sick sometimes.
She then encounters with Surya – a South Indian guy. He helds the charisma of a movie star. He is an art student and there is a mysterious fragrance associated with him. Meenaxi falls in for him. On the other hand the sequence of arranging meetings with several grooms-to-be is going on parallel. The family finds a really genuine guy for Meenaxi.
So now Meenaxi have to chose from the two fellows. Who is right for her? What is the mysterious fragrance associated with Surya? Well, the film tells all, if you can watch it till the end. As the overall budget of the movie was not too high, it already made a good income against the same.
Overall, it could have been a better movie, which looses its path after a great start.
