The story travels very smoothly in such a way that one doesn't yawn for a 140 minutes movie. I don't want to say the familiar story (Jabardasth) again and bore everyone. There are not much changes to the script, as it was only a song and few scenes added to suit the taste of Telugu audience. The taking of director Gokul Krishna is good in parts. The way he introduced Shakthi-Shruthi and established his Ghetti Mellam is good. However, he could not make a tight script to knit all the characters closer. This kind of storyline needs slick characterization and on-the-fly screenplay. The director failed to provide a gripping screenplay. Especially the second half narration is bit damn slowly and makes see the exit door twice. The comedy in the film is good in parts.
Performances: The performances are what hold the movie together, ensuring it doesn't fall dunk shot on flimsy plot. Nani takes the cake here. The actor manages to quite convincingly pull off the role of a Tapori character especially will make you laugh with his broken English. Bollywood actress Vani Kapoor is pretty in her looks and does an okay job. Simran acted in a film after a gap of few years. She played the role of Chandra a top wedding planner and justified her character. Rest of the characters are okay in their respective roles.
Technicalities: Dialogues of Rajiv Rajaram have wide ranged flavor in them. There are mass dialogues as well as some sensible comedy ones. Photography by Loganathan Srinivasan is good. There are few jumps in the editing of the film in a couple of scenes.
Nani, Vani Kapoor,
Drags in the second half,
Slow Narration and Editing,
lip sync should have been better
Bottomline: Yash Raj's Aha Kalyanam could have been a bit more S-Oho!
