Comedy, Musical


A late-20s-odd-30s-year-old single daydreamer with a keen sense of smell whiffs through her day with reenactments of Bollywood heroine numbers… until she meets the brooding artist of her filmi southern-flared sexed up musical fantasies.

What are people saying?

  • pepoire's rating of the film Aiyyaa

    Aiyyaa feels really unfocused, but there are a lot of things to like about it. Even if the film as a whole doesn't really work, it's visually super imaginative, and occasionally very funny and touching (also, Dreamum Wakeupum is a work of art by itself). Rani is fantastic; I treasure the scene where she sits on her bed in her pyjamas learning how to say "Please keep the top button of your shirt open" in Tamil.
