As soon as the official announcement regarding ‘Ayogya’ was made, there wasn’t a much hype for this movie. Of course, most of us had watched Jr.NTR-Kajal Aggarwal starrer ‘Temper’ and the consequent remake in Hindi titled ‘Simbha’ that hit screens recently. We are aware about the story and its entire proceeding too. Even by the first half of Ayogya, you tend to have same thoughts as it proceeds in similar route. Precisely, you’re pulled and held intact by second hour as the emotional episodes start occurring.
Let’s take a small glimpse on the film’s storyline – A corrupt police officer keeps supporting the illegal activities of a dreaded Drug Lord and his brothers. When an innocent life is devastated by their brutal deeds leaving a deplorable impact on some good peoples, the befallen devil has to take the other side.
We have come across such tales in Tamil cinema quite often. How can we forget the Aarusamy (Vikram starrer Saamy) or any other leading heroes for this reference? In fact, this was considered as one among the blatant surprises to see a hero cop as a corrupt officer. It might not appeal as a surprise over here as we are now beyond the ages ever since that happened. So what actually keeps us engrossed with Ayogya? It’s none other than the current social issue of harassment of women that is happening. Maybe, the writers of original version would have not envisaged that the second remake after Hindi would get released by this time and it would have an additional benefit for having a social relevance. Especially, Venkat Mohan taking a pinch of inspiration from his mentor AR Murugadoss’ ‘Ramana’ for the climax pulls it off efficiently good as an overall experience.
Except for Parthiepan, there’s nothing special to mention upon others in the star-cast. The role played by KS Ravikumar could have been yet more finely tuned. Pooja Devariya has a minimal role, but is the actual key towards escalating story to next level. Raashi Khanna looks good and gorgeous, but her role is nothing but the same stereotypical heroine as enacted by Kajal Aggarwal in original version.
Sam CS’ music is merely average and nothing special to mention upon others in the technical department.
Overall, Ayogya might looks like a threadbare tale, but would win the audiences’ attention for these reasons – emotions in second half, climax and social relevance.
