(Surya) is a street-smart henchman to the local don
Viswanath (Asish Vidyarshi). Viswanath asks Aaru to
arrange crowds to do suicide drama in order to protest
against a political event. When Aaru arranges five men
for suicide drama, Viswanath makes sure that they get
assassinated. Viswanath also summons another don Adi
(Jaya Prakash Reddy) to kill Aaru. The rest of the story
is all about how Aaru takes revenge on his master Viswanath.
Surya is good in
this mass role. He appeared more appealing in terms
of dressing in the second half compared to the first
half. Trisha donned a routine
heroine character. She is cute. Asish
Vidyardhi is dreadful as villain. Kalabhavan
Mani went overboard while playing the role of
cop. Jaya Prakash Reddy
is adequate as Tamilian. Vadivelu
offered some relief with his comedy, thanks to the voice
- screenplay - direction: Story of the film is a
routine revenge drama. Director Hari is capable of doing
the plots of revenge with mass orientation. However,
he could not succeed in establishing the thread of love
between hero and heroine in a convincing way. Screenplay
of the film is average. The director failed to establish
the characters in impact-making way. Narration of the
film is pretty slow.
departments: Music by Devi Sri Prasad is average.
Puttunta Puttunta and Choododde songs are good. Dialogues
by Shashank are adequate. Photography by Priyan is fair.
Stunts by Rocky Rajesh are neat in the second half.
Production values by Gemini Film Circuit are good.
First half of the film is boring. Second half is better.
Surya and Trisha are the plus points of the film. The
main drawback of Aaru is Tamil nativity and Tamil mass
elements. There is lots of violence in the film. The
mass elements in the second half might attract the front
benchers from B and C centers. On a whole, Aaru coming
after Ghazani does not live it up!
