Aiyyari : The Magical Movie.



Watched Aiyyari. A MUST WATCH movie.

In these days of everyone complaining about everyone else not spending enough time with each other, this is one movie which brings the family, the spouse closer.  It's no less achievement.
How it managed to do so?

Because, in the end, after almost three hours, four tubs of popcorns, colas and burgers included, you are bound to ask your neighbour, "What just happened here?"
Even enemies are bound to discuss, "Bhai, ye bata de, aakhir hua kya?"

In fact, during the movie itself you'd feel that itch to pause it and ask someone if they are also as lost as you are or is it you alone on whom suddenly age has caught up with in just 45 minutes in to the movie! Trust me, in those first 45 minutes, at least once you'd mistrust your  senses and feel senile(!) or dumb depending upon which side of 25 you are.

Though on the positive side, it made me recall many forgotten incidents. Like it reminded me of one of my cousin who once pronounced the word Dilemma as Dalai Lama and then was suitably upset that I gave a blank insensitive face to his emotional Dalai Lama!

...and, on second, third and fourth thought, it should be TAX FREE.
Because, this movie is bringing us closer as a group, as one team, as  a family, as a nation discussing the same thing and surprise surprise, still agreeing with each other! Free of caste and creed, middle and uber class, regionalism and language barriers, we stand united in asking, "For God's Sake, WHAT IS Happening!?" :/

It is the real patriotic and pro- nationalistic movie!

It forges RE- CONNECT
 It made me comnent on a friend's wall. I was 'made' to connect with her which otherwise I could have conveniently ignored. It made us RE- connect. *Sigh...
Such a sweet feeling...in this way it is rebuilding strained relationships and calling estranged friends back.

Last but, not the least, it is a brain teaser. After 48 hours of watching I am still in the process of deconstructing each scene and dialogue ..to get some clue for the eternal question, HUA KYA?

So, don't wait reading me more on this topic and grab the first ticket of a nearby nearly empty theatre and reap in its benefits.

I rest my case.
Happy Watching.

    2. We, as a family are united in being in a perpetual state of Dalai Lama regarding Aiyyari. :D

  2. :D :D The poster was tempting me. Now I know better, thanks to the reviews. Your review reminds me of a movie (can't recollect the name) whose trailer looked interesting. But when we went to see the movie, I couldn't make out the head or tail of the story. Only after coming back home and reading the review I realized that Jacqueline Fernandez had a double role in it. Dalai Lama again. :D :D

    1. That happens a Lot. We buy a book finding the blurb interesting or worse, swept away by the book cover! (I have done this:/)
      His honourable Dalai Lama is omnipresent! Btw, you should watch it, Somali. Who knows, hamari bhi aankhen khul jayen! :D

  3. Thanks for giving me the title of my next book From Dilemma to Dalai Lama: A Journey of Wisdom.

    Btw, your 'Kya hua' remind me of old Doordarshan ad of gripe water, "Kya hua bachchi ro rahi hai...woodwards de de...."

    Waise bhi agar samajh aa jaye to fir aiyyari kaisi? :D:D

    1. My point. Samjh aayi to Aiyyari kaisi? :D As for the title, Dilemma actually ends only when we attain Dalai Lama-hood. Pleasure you liked the musing! :)

  4. Waise toh main na bhi dekhta, lekin aapke review ne dekhne ki utsukta paida kar di hai..Apna dumbness quotient check karne ke liye 😢 Negative publicity eh?😊 I can't believe that it's not a paid promotion ☺☺

    1. Ha ha, Sir! True creative people will realize their folly and will learn from it. :) इसलिए ठीक ही है अगर उनको समझ आ जाये कि क्या कृतित्व किया है उन्होंने। At least, I am freely writing what I actually feel unlike in our blogosphere where we follow, 'you like mine, I like yours..' on outrageously blasphemous things we churn out in the name of poetry/haiku/prose/musings! An assortment of metaphors, simile and refined words is not literature! हिंदी कविता/ हाइकु तो मर ही जाए अपनी दुर्दशा देख कर! And, someone who has read Sudha ji, along with Pant, Prasad, Dwivedi and Nirala, I am sure you have felt the same too, hence to write on a movie seemed safer! Btw, it's not a paid promotion. It's a breezy piece written in response to my friend Maniparna's FB status about a pair of earrings! 😊

    2. ओह्हो कोकिला मैंने तो आपके review के हास्य-व्यंग्य पूर्ण लहज़े का अनुसरण करते हुए उसी लहज़े में एक मज़ाकिया comment किया था, लेकिन आपके explanation से लगता है कि वो misfire कर गया :(
      Comment के अंत में wink वाली emogi डालता तो शायद दुरुस्त रहता, लेकिन महिलाओं के प्रति अति आदर का भाव रखने के कारण ( am an old fashioned man) ऐसा करने से परहेज़ सा ही करता हूँ ... चलिए कोई बात नहीं misfires बताते हैं कि मैं अच्छा लेखक होने का गुमान न करूँ:):)
      अब सीधे शब्दों में बताता हूँ कि मुझे आपका review इतना बढ़िया लगा कि अपने movie maniac दोस्तों को refer भी कर दिया है ये कह कर कि इस पिक्चर को न देख कर जो पैसे बचें वो मुझे दे देना, थैंक्यू के साथ:):)

    3. PS: और 'safer genre' की ख़्वाहिश आपको क्यों होनी चाहिए? आप निःसंदेह एक सिद्धस्त, अतिकुशल, उच्च कोटि की प्रवीण कवियत्री हैं. हिंदी और अंग्रेज़ी के अलावा अब तो आप chaste उर्दू में लिख कर भी अपने पाठकों को चकित कर रही हैं! मैं आपके लेखन का ज़बरदस्त fan हूँ और रहूँगा भले ही आप मेरे लिखे को पसंद करें या न करें ('our blogsphere')! आपकी बेहतरीन उर्दू शायरी पढ़ कर ये इल्म हुआ कि मैं जो कभी-कभार कुछ उर्दू शब्दों का प्रयोग कर लिया करता हूँ वो किस क़दर mediocre है...
      हाँ, एक बात में मेरी राय थोड़ी जुदा है- जिन मशहूर कवियों का ज़िक्र आपने किया है निःसंदेह हम आज वैसा नहीं लिख रहे हैं, और लिखें भी क्यों? हर युग का अपना साहित्य होता है जो आगे चल कर उसे पहले लिखे गए साहित्य से पृथक पहचान दिलवाता है..

  5. Uff! I guess, my comment has misfired! Our blogosphere is includes I because it's I who have received a LOT of flak/hate comments for my haiku/posts by people who are considered masters because they are stars/popular here. What they miss is that, to 'know' and to 'express' are different aspects. I don't like free verse or complicated words doesn't make them any lesser. But, I don't write hate mails! I just meant that 'I' like a thing only when it pleased my senses first, cerebral realms comes second(to me). ...And that does NOT mean I like surf without substance! I can't appreciate/ enjoy any literature/movie/poetry unless it appeals the senses,sad, aching, blissful whatever it ought to vibrate the heartstrings, the soul. If it presents a deeper meaning, it's a creative bonanza, a reader's, writers delight. So, I meant that to write on movie was safer than to write on blog posts. I understood you perfectly there but have to agree, I actually thought you are really wondering it being a paid promotion! 😊😊😊 I
    PS. I thought, you would notice Sudha Aunty's name and would understand that I like lyrical, beautiful and deep verses. :)

    3. कोकिला जी, लोगों की कही-सुनी बातों को भूल कर आप अपनी काव्य-यात्रा पर अग्रसारित रहें, और हमें अपनी कोमल अहसासों में लिपटी कविताओं/ग़ज़लों का रसास्वादन करवाती रहें, ऐसी शुभकामनाओं के साथ.. अमित
