Aiyyaa - Top Reviews

Sachin Kundalkar's 'Aiyyaa' is a curious film to review, neither can you completely diss it as a bad one nor can you overlook its obvious flaws.
Rummana Ahmed, Yahoo India
Aiyyaa takes time to warm up, slips into dull patches at times and occasionally teeters on the edge of a certain dissonance. But the subversive spirit that drives the absurdist core of Aiyyaa is well worth embracing.
To enjoy a film like 'Aiyyaa', logic and rational definitely have to be left behind. Sachin Kundalkar creates a funny, slightly eccentric, filmi protagonist but he expects her charm to carry a film that is saddled with a ridiculous plot and side character

AIYYAA becomes a deserving watch. It's arresting amusing entertaining and of course thoroughly enjoyable with Rani's splendid act

Sonia Chopra, SIFY
Prithviraj, who plays her object of desire, doesn't have much to do except be the attractive, angst-ridden artist. He has a nice presence but by the time this love story is resolved, you are way beyond caring - which is a real shame because parts of Aiyya

Rani Mukerji’s laugh riot is enjoyable, but extremely loud and over the top
Rachana Parekh, Bollywood Life
Aiyyaa is an ambitious film. Director Sachin Kundalkar self-consciously attempts a sensual magic realism, a half-dream, half-reality world with a film-crazed heroine at its centre.
Trisha Gupta, First Post
Well, those questions are invalid now as ‘Aiyyaa’ is already up for the audience to see and enjoy if they feels soThe movie is senseless, half-baked and very loudIt is boring and doesn’t carry a sense.The movie is about a girl who lives in a dreamlandShe

Don't miss 'Aiyyaa' to delightfully enjoy a good rom-com and to watch Rani jumping and dancing
K N Gupta, Smash Hits
Till a certain stage, the film is endearing. But by the time the film gets to its unrealistic, improbable, unimaginable and impractical climax, it has turned utterly butterly bizarre.
Janhavi Samant, Mid-Day
You are definitely in a critical conditionam by the time you finish Aiyyaa. Rather check out the short story instead of spending three hours see a girl sniff a boy!
Prateeksha Khot, Bolly Spice
In an interview with us recently, Rani Mukherji was miffed with the media for calling ‘Aiyyaa’ her comeback film. ‘Aamir Khan disappears for two years after every release, do you ask this question to him?’ she questioned. Rani’s last film was the critical

After watching 'Aiyyaa', one actually feels bad for Rani Mukerji who is definitely made for better films. In fact even from promotion perspective she went all out for the film.

 Good screen chemistry and performances, different humor, can be watched once

She is absolutely Filmy and compares herself with Indian Cinema super divas like Sieve, Juhi Chawla and Madhuri Dixit.

''Aaishapath'' Rani Mukherjee has seriously gone ''WAKDA'' this time. Naah, she''s no longer the typical hottie, playing a sexy glam doll in her movies. Rani makes her comeback with a completely bizarre avatar as a quirky Marathi mulgi Meenakshi Deshpande
Nabanita, OneIndia
Sad, because she tries her best.
Vinayak Chakravorty, India Today
However, one can't help but say that after every ten minutes or so as the film progresses one expects an unexpected turn that never comes.
Prasanna Zore, Rediff 
Entertaining in a cheesy and over-the-top way!
Suparna Thombare, Bollywood Life
Aiyyaa is a major disappointment coming from the production house of Anurag Kashyap and from the once upon a time highly revered actress Rani Mukerji. Watch this 'Wakda' tale at your own risk.

Aiyyaa is not the kind of love story which would find universal appeal. Rani Mukerji and the music are its plus points, and the dull script, its biggest minus point. Its run at the cinemas will be less than ordinary. It has taken a dull start and not much
The movie had good expectations among viewers, bearing in mind that it's been produced by versatile filmmaker Anurag Kashyap, and more than that starring none other two extreme talented actors such as Rani Mukerji and south star Prithviraj Sukumaran. Howe
Aakash Barvalia, Movie Zadda
On the whole, Aiyyaa falls in those categories of a good script with bad execution. Stunning performance by Rani and some south Indian style items songs are sure plus points. On the flip side Aiyyaa is  completely let down by some bad direction and some o
