Aiyyaa is a Hindi rom-com filim written and directed by Sachin Kundalkar. The film is jointly produced by Anurag Kashyap and Viacom 18. The film stars Rani Mukerji and Prithviraj in the lead roles. This film is the debut Bollywood film of Malayalam actor Prithviraj. The trailer for the film was released on 6 September 2012.
The story is about a Marathi girl Meenakshi Deshpande (Rani Mukerji) falling in love with a Tamil artist Surya (Prithviraj). Meenakshi Deshpande (Rani Mukherjee) is a middle class Marathi girl, a librarian at a college. She has five members in her family: A wheelchair bound grandmother who is blind, her father who smokes four cigarettes together, her mother who is obsessed with marriage, and her brother who’s only love in life is dogs. To escape the craziness of her family, Rani lives her life in dreams, and in her dreams the only thing she’s doing is dancing and enacting her favorite actresses, Sridevi, Juhi etc. Then there is Maina, Rani’s best friend, played by Anita Date as the dentally challenged big-mouthed freak who dresses up with ‘Crime Scene: Do Not Cross’ ribbons.
Meenakshi’s family are looking for a suitable groom but Meenakshi, who doesn’t believe in arranged marriages, is waiting for her prince and wants her dream wedding. That’s when South Superstar Surya (Prithviraj) enters. Surya is an art student, and the moment Meenakshi looks at him she falls in love with his tanned skin and body odour. Yes, you read that right. Body odour. By this time her family have found the ‘right guy’ Maadhav (Subodh Bhave) for her, and are rushing with her wedding. The rest of the film involves Madhav running around after Meenakshi, and Meenakshi following Surya.
Her brother Nana (Amey Wagh) is a dog-loving wastrel.
Her mother (Nirmiti Sawant) keeps introducing her to different suitors. Her blind-bling sporting grandmother in a motorised wheel-chair mouths inanities all through. And the father smokes cigarettes, three at a time.
