Whoever the hero is, Trivikram’s films are the most-awaited movies by all sections of audiences. The writer-director has great fan following as his movies offer great entertainment and his writing is sensible.
After directing big heroes in series of movies, he has announced “A Aa” with Nithin and Samantha. Since the announcement, the film has raised expectations as he said he is going to the roots – to make movies in pure form minus buildup scenes for hero. So has he delivered with this? Let’s find out..
Anasuya(Samantha) is the only daughter of Naresh and Nadhiya. Her life is dominated by her mother who in turns fixes her marriage with a rich guy. As expected, Anasuya doesn’t like this and on the suggestion of her father leaves to her aunts house to spend some free time.
This is the time where she meets Anand(Nithin) and falls in love with him. Twist in the tale arises when Anand is forced to get married to Naga Valli(Anupama Parameswaran) because of his personal problems.
Rest of the story is as to how Anasuya deals with her angry mother and sidelines Nagavalli to win her love for Anand.
Samantha as Anasuya is cute and has carried the author-backed role with so much ease. After a long time, Samantha has looked beautiful. The one who steals the show is Rao Ramesh. His punch dialogues are enough to enjoy the movie. The movie gives a good feel because of his acting and dialogue delivery in the end.
Nithin has given his best performance to date in this film in the role of Anand Vihari. He has shown so much maturity. He has also looked handsome and his chemistry with Samantha is sizzling. Anupama Parameswaran makes a decent debut and her jealousy angle with Samantha is showcased supremely well.
Naresh is hilarious as a father just like the way he did in Bhale Bhale Magadivoy. Praveen is pleasant as hero’s help. Srinivasa Reddy is a treat to watch as a secretary who is out to impress his lady boss. Srinivas Avasarala is apt for the role he played.
Nadhiya’s character is more like a logical extension of her character in Atharintiki Daaredi. The difference is that her character is righteous in Attarintiki Daaredi and her character has a bit of negative shades in this movie. Rao Ramesh comes up with another top-notch performance and his comic timing in dialogue delivery is impeccable.
Screenplay is apt and does not deviate much. As expected, dialogues are quite meaningful and create the right impact. Dialogues by Trivikram have elevated the story. They are situational yet sound good to ears. Music by Mickey J Meyer is completely different from the tunes he has done in the past. Songs are refreshing and are well shot. All songs are shot with different concepts. Cinematography is the main highlight of the movie. Art direction by AS Prakash is excellent. Production values by Haarika Hassine Creations banner are excellent.
Trivikram once again proves that he is magician of his craft with A..A. First half of the film is nice. Second half meanders a bit, but a good climax followed by punch dialogues of Rao Ramesh makes you feel good as you step out of the theater. Samantha and emotional scenes. On the flipside, the flashback of the film which is the foundation looks little hazy and the pace in second half should have been faster. The romantic track between Anasuya (Samantha) and Anand (Nithin) is highly engaging. So is their chemistry.This is a film which will do exceptionally well with the family and overseas audience as the lead pair ensure that things fall in right place.
