Suriya, Prabhu, Tamanna
K V Anand
Waywardly teenager, a youngster
and an ageing gentleman –
Suriya has done it all in his
Vaaranam Aayiram. With an inexhaustible
thirst for variety, he is ready
for another date with the box
office after the critically
acclaimed Vaaranam Aayiram.
Ayan is touted to be a high
energy adrenaline rush experience
with Suriya retaining his lately
acquired six-pack hinting that
there are as much action sequences
as much there are romantic ones.
And yes, if the promos are to
be believed, Suriya drops his
shirt flaunting his beefcake
Ayan has the all-fresh Tamanna playing Suriya’s
female lead whose slow and steady rise to
stardom is stuff for fairy tales. Ayan will
also catapult Tamanna’s status into
the big league and as a budding star; this
movie is likely to become significant in her
And as far as the story goes, we do hear
the usual clichés boasting on how
the movie is different from the other movies.
However, as a step ahead, here, director
K V Anand declares that Ayan will rewrite
the movie watching experience of Tamil viewers.
“Ayan’s theme is completely
unexplored in Indian cinema and hence the
movie will be an eye-opener of sorts,”
Anand was quoted as saying by the media.
Besides, Suriya also revealed in a recent
press meet that the Censor Board was uncertain
in providing the movie’s certificate.
All this only add up to the already swelling
Suriya plays the role of a 25 year old living
in the labyrinth called Triplicane. So the
requirement obviously demanded him to speak
the ‘Chennai Sendamizh’. According
to him, director K V Anand’s mastery
helped him attain fluency in the dialect.
Originally named Boomathiya Regai, the movie
was later rechristened to Ayan, meaning
the unbeatable, for want of a crisp title.
Ayan is shot in diverse locations including
the maze like streets of Triplicane, the
lush green forests of Africa & Malaysia
and the Skeleton Coast of Namibia. Suriya’s
electrifying action sequences are said to
be one of the major attractions of the movie.
Apart from Kanal Kannan, Franz Spilhaus,
a stunt team that worked for many famous
Hollywood movies has choreographed the stunt
sequences in this film
Ayan also has Akashdeep Saigal debuting
in Tamil in a negative role with Prabhu,
Vivek and Karunas playing vital roles. Written
by K V Anand and the noted writer Subha,
Ayan is produced by AVM Productions and
distributed by SUN Pictures.
Harris Jayaraj’s music is already
topping the charts with footage from the
movie being telecast in television channels.
The album has 6 songs to its credit.
Ayan is scheduled for release this weekend,
April 3, 2009.
