Aiyya Movie Review

Rani Mukherjee said this movie would be one of her best, but long gone are the days when an actor said that their film would be something new, and the film actually turned out to be worth the money. In fact Aiyya will be a huge disappointment for Rani and Anurag Kashyap’s fans. It is hard to believe that Rani, who has won awards for critically acclaimed roles said yes to the film. And what made Anurag Kashyap, who is the producer of the movie, think that a movie that has a female lead going head over heels for a man just because of his odour, would work at the box office?

The story sounds quite funny as a concept, but the jokes barely work. 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, who managed to thoroughly annoy everyone in the theater this writer was watching Aiyya in. The less said about her the better.

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.

The entire film revolves around Rani Mukherjee, but there is some disappointment here too. Viewers expecting and encore of her livewire performance in No One Killed Jessica may be disappointed, but the fault lies more with the story than with Rani.  You can see that she has put in every effort but there is little that can save this movie. Prithviraj and Subodh hardly have a role in the film but maybe because Prithviraj is a huge superstar in the south he gets to mouth a few lines in the end. Subodh, as the simple guy Madhav, has even lesser to do than Prithviraj.

To sum it up, Aiyya has some good moments, almost all provided by Rani Mukherjee, and all of them in the first half but Aiyya’s story and film length could have used a helping hand. The item songs live up to their billing and Rani has performed the best belly dance this side of the Arabian Sea. But movies are about more than belly dancing and sadly for Aiyya and Rani, that is all people are going to remember.

Vorwerk Kobold VR300 Review

At nearly £1000, does the VR300 offer enough to justify the purchase when you can pick up a robot vac for £100s less? Find out in our Vorwerk Kobold VR300 review
Should I Buy The Vorwerk Kobold VR300?
It’s expensive, but the Kobold VR300 provides an impressive vacuuming experience that we think could rival that of a conventional vacuum cleaner, but it’s not as smart as some rivals – yet. The low-profile design, upgraded SLAM technology and D-shape design allow the VR300 to safely navigate around obstacles and reach every last nook and cranny.

If you’ve got an NVMe PCI M.2 port on your system you’ll probably want Samsung’s 960 Evo in that form factor, but for everyone else the SATA model the new Evo is an excellent option.
It’s not substantially quicker than the model it replaces, but the extended lifespan is certainly worth the modest investment.

Samsung 860 QVO Review

As SATA SSDs go the Samsung 860 QVO is a fine, but hardly revolutionary design. It might sport new 4-bit NAND memory modules, but the performance and price combination won’t be turning any heads.
Should I Buy The Samsung 860 QVO?
As is stands, there's no hugely compelling reason to buy the 860 QVO over rival SSDs - even Samsung's own.
Moving to the new tech was supposed to be more cost-effective but that doesn't seem to be the case. Performance is great but this drive will be far more appealing when the larger 2- and 4TB capacities and arrive and prices drop a little.
