It is hard to understand how this movie got good reviews. Masala genre has been devalued this decade as a result of Hari and Dharani movies. So this movie appears to be better in contrast. If 'Vel' is a hit then Ayan can be a hit. However, I am curious as to what the director and film crew discuss behind the scenes. Do they go "this scene is ridiculous, illogical, and complete nonsense but I think people are idiots and so will like it". Most of the movie is illogical and kind of buffoonish. Thamizh movies still have not developed to the point where they can have "google" "chemical reaction" or sightly technical terms appear in a dialog without the audience laughing their ass off.
The whole love sequence between Surya and Tamanna is laughable. Cinema characters seem develop 'lauve' in a peculiar way. There was a sequence in Congo that has been shot well. One can overlook the fact that they've tried to clone Casino Royale's opening scene. Outside of that every scene was plain ridiculous. Some scenes, such as the ones where the villain goes to Surya's contacts to offer his services is poorly executed and looks amateur. Did the director assume that any villain is bound by law to put angry face, speak fast and shout at everybody? And we still have hero jumping up and flying ridiculously above a truck and fall on the other side of the truuck. dei thirundhungada. idhellam oru padam. Headache.
