Anbanavan Asaradhavan Adangadhavan review: Strictly for STR fans
A B-grade crowd-pleaser that knows exactly who its audience is
Friday 23 June 2017
First things first- Whoever came up with the terrific idea of getting Motta Rajendran to dub for the statutory warning against liquor and tobacco just before the movie starts, deserves a pat on the back. It kick-starts AAA 's idea of entertainment.
The film moves along harmlessly through its first half, with a few clever dialogues thrown in, and some pleasant chemistry between its male leads ( STR, Mahat, VTV Ganesh and Motta Rajendran). It is a film that makes no bones, no pretenses about the fact that it plays to the galleries and is packaged for STR fans. It is loud, dumb and silly. But that's the way it is designed.
STR in two roles performs earnestly and get a lot of moments to shine and mouth punch lines aplenty. He gets all the clever lines and does full justice to them, delivering them with such effortless ease that you are tempted to believe that he’s coming up with them on the spur of the moment. The gorgeous Shriya Saran sans any make-up impresses us in the first half. But greatest disservice is done to Tamannaah who has nothing to do other than lust behind an old man, say few corny dialogues and walk around in few itsy-bitsy clothes.
On the whole, AAA is a B-grade crowd-pleaser that knows exactly who its audience is. For die-hard fans of STR it is a treat. By the way, the film ends with a dialogue from STR that a part-2 is on the cards! Go in with modest expectations and perhaps you won’t come out dissatisfied.
AAA review- Verdict: Strictly for STR fans
