The story is about two people...



Shruti Subramanyam (Vaani Kapoor) is college passed out student. But she is more interested in setting up a wedding planning firm. Shakti is go lucky guy but does nothing. Shakti's father is farmer and forces him to assist him in agriculture. Shakti hates this and accidentally meets Shruti. He tries to woo her however Shruti doesn't like the idea of mixing finance (her business) and romance which leads to declination of Shakti proposal.

Shruti and Shakti try to fetch a job under a ace wedding planner Chandralekha (Simran) but could not manage it. This leads them to establish a wedding planning firm on their own with name Getti Melam. Within no time they make profits in the business and in the due course Shruti falls for Shakti. But they split as Shakti diverts Shruti's feeling and also their business firm takes two directions. The rest of the plot is how Shakti and Shruti unite and what happens to Getti Melam.

Analysis :


This is a dubbing film and only songs, few scenes were shot in Telugu. But the director Gokul Krishna deserves a pat on this back for handling the subject very carefully. The chemistry between Nani and Vaani Kapoor is superb. The dialogs are neat and sound hilarious. The film starts of like a slow poison but increases the pace. The climax is also very good. However lack of commercial elements may won't appeal to the mass audience.

Performance :


This is absolutely one man show by Nani. His comedy timing is a big plus for this film nonetheless sometimes we feel it is the same Nani. He did everything as Shakti and will surprise on the silverscreen with hatke scenes.

Vaani Kapoor did an impressive debut. She provided glamor, acting and dancing skills effortlessly to the film. She managed the Tamil dialogs properly and the lip sync in songs which are in Telugu were absolutely fine. On the whole, Vaani performed better than Nani (being alien to South).

Final Word: Aaha Kalyanam is nothing short of Band Baaja Barat. Those who have the Bollywood flick still can manage to watch it. Multiplex audience will catch up with the movie and B, C center are recommended for a one timer.
