It is known that actor Simbu is playing a triple role in his upcoming film Anbanavan Asaradhavan Adangadhavan aka AAA. The actor has released a teaser video introducing one if his characters called Ashwin Thatha, a 60-year-old man. However, this character of his is capable of doing all things that defy his age such as lifting a car with his bare hands or dating a girl in her 20s.

Simbu’s Anbanavan Adangathavan Asarathavan is the latest movie to join the list of films that are being shot in the woodlands. The director is just back in the city after finalising a few locations in the forests of Thailand for the shoot. He will be canning a major action sequence for the film with Simbu and Mahath there.

Adhik says, “We are planning to shoot in the dangerous caves of Thailand. I travelled with team to see the places and they are extremely scary. We will be able to shoot only with the aid of the police force there. Team members who know swimming will be the only ones permitted there as those caves are full of water. We will be canning fiery action scenes with Simbu there.”

The film so far has Shriya Saran and Tamannaah as the female leads, but since Simbu is playing a triple role, the team is looking for one more heroine, who will be finalised before they head to Thailand for the shoot.

As you all know by now, Simbu is making his debut as a music director in Santhanam’s Sakka Podu Podu Raja. The latest buzz is that Anirudh will be singing for one of the songs in the film.

Anirudh is known for singing for any music director who approaches him, as a friendly gesture and he has done this yet again for Simbu and Santhanam. It is to be noted that Simbu had sung a track called ‘Peiyophobilia’ from Anirudh’s most recent release, Rum.

Today, Simbu has posted a short video of a recording session for the song with Anirudh. The video was captioned,

” What a changeover !!! I’m recording and @anirudhofficial is singing .Thanks ani 🙂 #SakkaPoduPoduRaja @iamsanthanam”.

We can’t wait for the release of the album too see how Simbu delivers as a music composer!

After Rajinikanth and Ajith Kumar, it is now the turn of Simbu to become Billa. Well, the buzz is that Venkat Prabhu is planning to remake Rajini’s movie in Kollywood, which will become the third version of “Billa.”

Director Venkat Prabhu and actor Simbu might join hands for the reboot of Tamil actioner ‘Billa’. The film was earlier made with superstar Rajinikanth and Ajith Kumar.

‘Billa’ was the Tamil remake of Amitabh Bachchan-starrer ‘Don’. During a periscope session with his fans on Sunday, Simbu revealed that he plans to work on a script along the lines of ‘Billa’.

The wait is finally over. Simbu’s long awaited rom-com Idhu Namma Aalu has made it to the silver screen across the world. Directed by National Award winner Pandiraj, the movie also stars Nayanthara, Andrea Jeremiah and Soori in noteworthy roles.

As we all know that the movie was in the pipeline for the last 3 years or so, Idhu Namma Aalu over the years, managed to heighten the expectation among fans and cine buffs.

STORY
Simbu plays an IT professional, who takes us into his past to unravel his first love and the heartbreak he goes through thereafter. He begins his life afresh with Nayanthara and hopes for a better luck when it comes to his love life, second time around. But, how difficult is it to move on in one’s life?

Idhu Namma Aalu is about a married couple and their relationship which needs a bit of sparkle. Without much twists and turns, Pandiraj presents a neatly woven light-hearted entertainer.

PLUS POINS
+ As expected, stand out performances from Simbu and Nayantara forms the backbone of this film. Nayantara’s screen presence is in tune with her character and her on-screen chemistry with Simbu seem to fit the bill for a breezy rom-com.

+ Andrea Jeremiah’s extended cameo provides a fresh angle to the entire love saga. The Pachaikili Muthucharam actress looks gorgeous, which is an added advantage.

+ Soori’s comedy sequences, for a change, looks unforced and flows along with the screenplay. It is enjoyable as well with genuine laugh-out-loud moments. Special appearances from Santhanam and Jai manages to bring smile on the audiences face, adding to the overall feel of the movie.
Technicalities:

+ The driving force of Idhu Namma Aalu is Pandiraj’s dialogues. It is his screenplay and dialogues that make this film, which has a wafer-thin storyline, enjoyable.

+ Kuralarasan, who makes his debut as a music director, has come up with decent background score that goes along well with what’s being played on the screen.

MINUS POINTS
While the first half is breezy and entertaining, editor Praveen KL could’ve shortened the length of the movie’s latter half.

FINAL VERDICT 
Idhu Namma Aalu is nothing more than a breezy rom-com which is fairly engaging. Could’ve been a lot better but definitely worth your time.
