Paiyaa Review – Storyless, Pathetic Piece of Shit

Paiyaa UK Box Office โ€“ Bad, Really Bad

The distraught girl is chased by a bunch of Andhra thugs and must reach Bombay.

Oh, no. Oh, no.

You see, the smitten, besotted, desperately in love guy who is driving the girl to her grandma’s home is chased by a gang of Bombay goons and must not reach Bombay.

Solving the Bombay Problem, How?
Ha ha ha. Ezee boss. Ezee.

First, Siva (Karthi) uses a black umbrella to hide from the Bombay hoodlums waiting for him en route.

Second, the girl uses the same black umbrella in an abortive bid to hide from the Andhra goondas. Alas, the schmuck Charu (Tamannah Bhatia) can’t even hold an umbrella straight and gives the game away to the waiting baddies

Hey, wait. We almost forgot. Our hero is Nikkara vandilae aeramataru (the hero will never board a standing bus).

Andhra thugs, Bombay thugs, Black umbrella, Nikkara vandilae aeramataru hero – Folks, these are the flimsy threads on which the Paiyaa story hangs teeters.

No kidding. No, we’re not drunk. Well, maybe slightly. ๐Ÿ˜‰

By the way, can any of our Mensa-readers explain why the South Indian thugs in our movies always look like neanderthals chomping into the raw meat while the Bombay thugs look refined in comparison. Weird.

Disgusting Shit
Any surprise then that Paiyaa is a pathetic piece of shit.

Puke-worthy garbage unworthy of release in a theater.

If Paiyaa proves anything at all, it’s that Tamil Nadu Cheap oops Chief Minister Karunanidhi’s grandsonย  Dayanidhi Azhagiri is as much of a moron as his cousin Udayanidhi Stalin when it comes to putting out Tamil movies.

Usual Satan
But the arch-villain, the Ivan the Terrible, the hideous Satan behind the Paiyaa debacle, is not Dayanidhi Azhagiri but an IQ-less fella with the moniker of N.Lingusamy.

This buffoon Lingusamy is the irresponsible idiot responsible for the ill-begotten story, woeful screenplay and utter misdirection of Paiyaa.

Story, screenplay and direction, eh? – All of it handled as inhumanly badly as possible.

Y’all will, of course, recollect Lingusamy as the insufferable bozo who last handed us a migraine with the disaster Bheema.

Here he comes again to torment us with this junk a.k.a. Paiyaa.

When our hero and heroine are not driving to Bombay, they are battling an army of thugs.

So what if the goons come in five or 6 SUVs and are equipped with metal clubs and the like.

Poof. Our hero Siva dispatches them all bare-fisted with nary a scratch on his body at the end of it all.

While for the guy Siva it’s love at sight, for the girl it’s not.

We never get to see the girl developing love for our besotted hero. Hey presto, suddenly at the end, the girl is shown leaning on the guy’s chest.

Oh, that these poor old eyes should behold such unyielding nonsense before it closes forever.

Hang the Korangusamy
One of the redeeming elements of this movie could have been the music.

But Lingusamy Korangusamy tries his best to wreck that sole saving grace as well with the most banal, unimpressive picturization of every one of the songs.

Whether it’s the first song Thuli Thuli after Siva first catches sight of Charu in Bangalore or the last En Kadhal Solla in Bombay, the picturization of every song is so unimaginative that it beggars belief.

And guess what, this Mephistophilean descendant of Marquis de Sade Korangusamy robs us of the joy of even the music. ๐Ÿ™

By the way, the Poongatru Poongatru number on the way to Bombay reminded us of the Ennai Konjam song (featuring Karthi’s older brother Surya and sister-in-law Jyothika on the long jeep drive in Kaakha Kaakha).

As we said in our earlier post, Karthi is fine for the most part except for the fight scenes when he looks stupid or the dance scenes where he seems like a fish out of water. Tamannah is alright but doesn’t set the screen afire.

Avoid this Garbage
With such relentless drivel on the screen, it was no surprise that the audience at our theater on the East Coast was disengaged and frequently chattering loudly. And nobody seemed to mind.

Guys, Paiya implores you to extend to it the middle finger.

Watch not this full-on assault on your senses even if you are paid to do so.

Shun this Storyless, Pathetic Piece of Shit a.k.a. Paiya if you value your time and money.

        You write: except for a peek or two daily at the pathetically slow iPhone of my friend.. how do you guys use that thing?!

        iPhone isn’t slow. We use it mostly on WiFi and when we’re outside on 3G. Decent speeds on both.

        Most likely, your friend is on the slower AT&T Edge network.

      I do like the songs.. but don’t like Tamannah’s plastic looks.

      BTW, entry criteria to Mensa seems lax (not sure if is accurate).. Almost everybody who took GRE from our batch breezed well past the 1875 cutoff.

  3. STG   April 2, 2010 at 2:15 pm

    rarely…almost like a gem…Angaadi Theru released on your shores…

    why hesitate giving it a try rather running for the preview show of otherwise another nadir of Tamil cinema.

    I know you never get to watch movies like Pasanga since it doesnt makes it way to your country. With Ayngaran International backing, AT released all over the world even though it does not showcase any big/known names. Missing it would be a sin. Responds:

    Parkalam. That means neither a No nor a Yes.

    The round-trip is over 400KM. ๐Ÿ™

    If we watch it, we’ll be sure to review it.

    Here’s the pre-SI blog review of Veyyil (also directed by Vasanthabalan).

    Have you seen Angaadi Theru or planning to see it?

  4. STG   April 2, 2010 at 2:47 pm

    This weekend for sure…but I want to hear your words for the reason it travel almost parallel with my thoughts. If you bash it, I might reconsider watching it…saves my time like 6 hrs (not much on travel just 8KM away ๐Ÿ˜‰ ) and of course money. Its a mall, so if I get ticket for 3.15PM show, additionally I have to yank money for Lunch+massaging chair+popcorn+french fries+red bull/thumbs up+sugarcane juice+kissing cars+kulfi+ice cream (thanks to summer). Almost three times than the actual ticket price of two…too much if the movie sucks… ๐Ÿ™ Responds:

    Even if we decide to watch it, we most likely won’t be able to do it this weekend because of some prior commitments. Sorry, sweetie.

    • STG   April 2, 2010 at 3:02 pm

      no worries. then I will let you know whether its worth watching after the show. for once, let me decide for you… ๐Ÿ˜‰ Responds:


      • STG   April 4, 2010 at 11:37 pm


        Watched Angadi Theru yesterday – 10PM Night show. Have mixed feelings. Here is a small faq for you…

        Is this one of the 100 trashy movies that the Tamil film industry dishes out every year?
        Definitely not. This movie has little or no resemblance to its commercial counterparts.

        Does it have love?
        Yes. However it doesn’t takes center stage but is handled well and justified.

        Does it have humor?
        Yes and thanks to Black Pandi for his witty dialogues and actions when he tries to woo his co-worker which goes on well with the audience.

        Totally wrong question when discussing a Tamil movie. There are a few songs but you are able to see only two or three songs fully on screen. Other songs winds up quickly within a minute or two. My pick of the album is “Un perai sonnal”.

        Picturization of the songs?
        No. Viewers were not taken suddenly from T Nagar to USA or UK or Australia where hero, heroine and the director enjoy the tour and producer and people at theater whine. All the songs were picturized in the same locations where the lead characters live. Sometimes the songs seems to be at odds with and not in synch with the movie.

        As an aberration, this movie does have a story. Shockingly you see the director doesn’t divert the viewers a lot from the story by adding unnecessary elements. Of course there are a few odd moments like Sneha’s guest role, picturization of Unn Perai sonnal where the heroine is suddenly seen showing her navel, etc. However, these are very few and thankfully don’t disturb the main course of the film.

        Theme of the story is pain. Director Vasantha Balan has come up with an offbeat story and woven a convincing screenplay out of it. He had tried to explore the other face of the mega showrooms at Chennai, which people visualize as a paradise for shopping but turns out to be hell for the salespeople.

        Well, he does not deal with saving the world from aliens or giving solution for existing international issues – he has shown the life of otherwise minority people who pawn their life for the betterment of their family.

        Kani (Heroine, played by Anjali a.k.a Anandhi) and Karungaali (Antagonist, played by another director Venkatesh) are the two winners. Anjali conceived the role well and delivered the apt performance. It’s a charm to watch her expressions on screen. Venkatesh with his foul mouth and actions justifies his character.

        Final Verdict – The pain on the screen is well-depicted to the viewers. While this is not a milestone or great film, it does leaves traces on viewers. It’s irritating to see a humorous scene follow almost every heavy scene which lessens the impact. Sometimes I ask myself, “Does it really happen?” Seems like some incidents are exaggerated a bit like the way food is served to the workers, restrooms, etc.

        On the whole, if you just want to kill time having fun at theater, please skip the film, this is not for you. Responds:

        Decent summary in a nice FAQ format.

        Thank you. ๐Ÿ™‚

        Going by your FAQs, Angadi Theru seems a billion times better than the Paiya garbage.

        (BTW, did some minor editing to fix spelling/grammar issues.)

        • STG   April 5, 2010 at 12:24 am

          You are welcome and thanks for the enhancements.

          So have plans to watch it or have other fishes to fry… ๐Ÿ˜‰


          Not sure yet.

          It’s the thought of the 400-KM drive that is discomforting. After driving some 200,000 plus miles (about 3.2 lakh km) we find the mere thought of driving very irritating these days.

        • The Mahatma   April 5, 2010 at 9:53 am

          I liked Anjali in “Katradhu Thamizh” too.. pretty-faced and emotes better than Nayantara.. interesting to see a new-comer(that too a girl) picking up meaty (a.k.a non-glamorous) roles.


          You write above: interesting to see a new-comer (that too a girl) picking up meaty (a.k.a non-glamorous) roles

          Hell, man, when you are confronted with a Hobson’s choice what are you gonna do!

          If you believe her profile on Wiki:

          In her second film Aayudham Seivom opposite director-turned-actor Sundar C., she went for an image makeover, shedding her “homely image” and enacting a glamorous role with less scope to perform,[4] which was not well received by the audience as it was a surprise and shock as opposed to her first film, in which she gave an impressive performance.

          • STG   April 5, 2010 at 12:25 pm

            Yes. Anjali was pathetic in Aayudham Seivom.

            I thought if she does one or more films like AS, that would be the end of her career. Fortunately it didnt happen – AT saved her again and the ball is in her court again. With two stellar performances (KT and AT) and one less-than-mediocre performance(AS), I still have hopes on her.


            You write above: I still have hopes on her

            Us too. Us too. ๐Ÿ˜‰

            The girl auntie maami looks kinda cute.

        • STG   April 5, 2010 at 12:29 pm

          Going by your FAQs, Angadi Theru seems a billion times better than the Paiya garbage.

          Seems you added this recently.

          Yes, I bet Paiyaa would be nowhere near to Angadi Theru.


          You write above: Yes, I bet Paiyaa would be nowhere near to Angadi Theru

          We agree.

          It’s hard to visualize worse junk than Paiyaa with its Andhra thugs, Bombay thugs, Black umbrella, Nikkara vandilae aeramataru hero nonsense.

    • STG   April 2, 2010 at 3:16 pm

      Of course i do…within the few days of my visit, i found this site to be well optimized, well maintained (few years back i worked on SEO for some websites).

      I liked your site mainly for its simplicity (which Google and other search engines also love) without gee-wee flash, unwanted ads but adequate content. Even you use images only if its needed while other sites include atleast two pics of Karthi and Tamanna (of course skimpily dressed) in their pages to draw viewers.

      Further, you spend time in making the keywords (in this case Paiyaa, Lingusamy, etc) bold and link as much as you can which becomes like hot-cake for search engines when they crawl. Responds:

      1. The following might sound boring and trite. In the long run, people are going to revisit a blog/site only if they find the content compelling. They might stumble upon the site initially but if the content is trash they are not gonna return.

      2. Mostly, we link to our own content and, of course, Wiki.

      BTW, it might amuse you to learn that we have the lowest number of ‘followers’ on Twitter or ‘friends’ on Facebook.

      3. Plus, considering we have a lot of enemies who wish to do us harm, we have to be careful with our content and securing it.

      • STG   April 2, 2010 at 3:40 pm

        I guess you refer to whole Indian cinema right? ๐Ÿ˜‰

        you must be topping in their hitlist of Vijay, Ajith, Trisha, Nayanthara, et al.

        If you happen to visit India before the tree fell-off, they will surely show you the moksham (demise) Responds:

        Oh, we have lot of ill-wishers here too. People here have tried threats, entrapment tricks and other nonsense against us.

        After all, we have 2.57 million Indians living here. A big enough number to try various kinds of mischief mischeap.

          After all, we have 2.57 million Indians living here…

          Thats a news to me. Just gone through wiki and found to be interesting. Currently we are the third largest and iam sure with Indian’s special power(?) of breeding so fast like mosquitoes, we might reach the number one spot very soon.


          You write: Currently we are the third largest and iam sure with Indian’s special power(?) of breeding so fast like mosquitoes, we might reach the number one spot very soon.

          But the Mexicans (who are mostly Catholics and abhor abortion) breed faster. Impossible for any one to beat out-breed them here.

    Echoing Stalin, we can only say who can ever understand our people.

    Molotov and Stalin were walking home one night in a snowstorm “with no bodyguards” through the Manege Square when they were approached by a beggar.

    • trishna147   April 3, 2010 at 4:52 pm

      Havent watched the film, but i will end up watching it on a DVD anyway, since i’m a fan of both Karthi and Tamanna. And

      i agree with boopalanj – you seem to have a soft corner for Karthi. Generally when you review a film with no story, you always tend criticise the director + lead actors, but here, you just bashed Linguswamy/koranguswamy (btw, im not complaining, im just pointing it out)…how did you find the ‘chemistry’ between the lead pair??

      I saw 4 of the paiya songs on youtube, and i was totally disappointed by the way they were picturised. Esp my favourite song ‘en kadhal solla’. Totally not what i expected :(…
      and in Thuli Thuli, when Karthi dances, he reminds me of his brother…

      btw, just a random question, which musical album do you prefer: Paiya or Vinnaithaandi Varuvaya? Responds:

      1. The chemistry between Karthi and Tamannah Bhatia was nothing extraordinary. Rather extraordinarily ordinary.

      2. Yes, as we said in the review picturization of all the songs is beyond redemption.

      3. You write: just a random question, which musical album do you prefer: Paiya or Vinnaithaandi Varuvaya?

      We prefer Paiyaa’s music although we recently purchased the Vinnaithaandi Varuvaya title track from iTunes recently.

      We’ll probably buy all the Paiyaa tracks when they become available on iTunes.

      4. You write: i agree with boopalanj – you seem to have a soft corner for Karthi

      Dai Karthi: Arivu Ketta Makku Mundame, Shaniyane, Un Mandaelae Sambarani Kuda Illayada! Engayaru Poi Tholae.

      Do we still have a soft corner for Karthi? ๐Ÿ˜‰

        Yh, i prefer Paiya soundtracks to VTV as well. Except for the Poongatre Poongatre song, the songs have pretty awesome tunes.
        BTW, i just heard the new Sura songs, and they were horrible. I wouldnt call them songs. It’s basically noise. And 1/2 of them are ripped from telugu films. Seems like Mani Sharma couldnt be bothered to compose good tunes for Vijay this time (His pokkiri songs were pretty good)

        yh, i read your review of The Battle of Algier. It was very good ๐Ÿ™‚
        And since you’re a fan of war films, i think you should watch “Saving Private Ryan”. ‘Schindler’s list’ is pretty good as well.
        And if you’re a fan of horror films you should watch ‘Shutter’, the Thai version, and not the stupid American version, which was a pathetic remake.

        You Write Above:

      • chennaiarun2007   May 31, 2010 at 12:27 pm

        Hi Si,

        I watched quite a few scenes of Quentin Tarantino “classic” ‘Kill Bill’ in TV.after seeing it,I have decided not to watch it even in DVD.Thank God,I did not watch the full film!!I think that this film is a damn shit film.From now on,Tarantino will be called as Quentin “Tagaradabba (garbage can)” by me.

        If you think Kill Bill is a classic,then here are some warning signals:

        1.In a particular scene,Uma Thurman kills 200 people like a machine one by one using a sword!!And no realism either,believe me,she will not get a single cut in her skin nor will she be fatally wounded!!Definitely gives Tamil crap films a good competition.Makes me wonder whether the crap films like Paiyya or Sathyam are 1000 times better than this film.

        2.Read the story of this film,it is a pathetic piece of shit.

        3.In a scene,using the same ‘magical’ sword,she will kill her opponent by cutting her head.Nothing is “implied” here,the cutting of head will shown raw and live.The shit will be shown till the very end until the victim falls “dead” to the ground!!Blood will also be shown oozing out profusely from her dead body.I do not whats “magical” or “special” about a sword that is used by a person that is used to cut or wound another person!!

        If the so called “American” public think it is a classic,then it really beats the heck of me to think how come films like Paiyya or Sathyam are ‘dumb’ than American films.Then these films are also classics,isn’t it?ha,ha lol…

        Arun Responds:

        The only Tarantino films we’ve seen are Inglourious Basterds, Pulp Fiction and Reservoir Dogs (??). They were all good.

        Kill Bill is on our list.

        • vjcool   May 31, 2010 at 8:08 pm

          i didnt like kill Bill Vol 1, too much blood and i didnt understand the story either (if there ever was one), for tarantino i may watch it again to see if i like it.

          But I loved Kill Bill Vol 2, it’s the one having the episodic narration and a story. ill sure get a DVD of vol 2.


          Kill Bill
          , hopefully in the near future.

          If we can finish Somerset Maugham’s The Moon and Six Pence and a related post for the SI blog, we’re planning to watch Witness for the Prosecution (based on an Agatha Christie play) tonight.

    You write: Which one do you think is better….?

    If the Public Utility Building on MG Road is still standing, go to the top floor and take a leap rather than watch either of them.

    BTW, we purchased Vettaikaran DVD today. ๐Ÿ˜‰


    Watching Bad Company (Anthony Hopkins, Chris Rock). Watched 60%….Decent. Another 45 minutes left.

      “BTW, we purchased Vettaikaran DVD today.”
      I’m sorry, was that a joke??

      If you are so eager to watch a Vijay film, then watch Ghilli or Friends, not something stupid like Kuppakaaran/Vettaikaran.

      And also, i’m gonna recommend you to watch the following films:
      Raam, Kadhal, Aayudha Ezhuthu, Roja, Bombay and Peralagan (no i dont care whether jyothika is in it, i just liked the film as a whole cuz it was different to other commercial films). All of them are critically acclaimed. I would have recommended more, but these are the only good ones that are on Netflix. i dont understand why they have the dubbed version of Pithamagan though (Sivaputrudu) instead of the original tamil version.

      You Write Above:

      1. We’ll watch/review the movies in your above list. Some, we already have seen.

      2. Seriously, we really purchased Vettaikaran. Have seen Ghilli but never got around to reviewing it.

      Vettaikaran? Sure you wud’ve bought it for Anuska. But she was like a rock in it with no expression whatsoever ๐Ÿ™ Still she gave some respite in the otherwise unbearable movie… Reviewing Bad Company?? Responds:

      1. The first song is over. And no sign of Anushka mami.

      2. You write: Reviewing Bad Company??

      Bad Company? Likely not. Might do a short take along with one or two other movies.

      Decent movie but not great. Some of the dialogs, obviously the ones by Chris Rock, are funny.

      For a change, it’s nice to see Anthony Hopkins not eating some one. ๐Ÿ˜‰ He plays a CIA officer here.

    Karthi was a delight in Paruthi Veeran and AO. Haven’t seen Paiyya yet but he didn’t seem so impressive in the trailer.

    It’d be sad to see his talent getting wasted. Responds:

    Paiyya was utter garbage. ๐Ÿ™
