Well.. This story of the film Ammuvagiya Naan revolves around the life of a sex worker Ammu who incidentally is married by Parthiban(Gowrishankar) who happens to be a famous writer. The writer is famous for his various controversial novels but unfortunately, he is denied the coveted best writer for 3 consecutive years.. So, he is determined to lay hands upon that award and so decides that the life of a sex worker would be his next novel's theme. I usually dont tell the story of the films in my review.. So, I have just given a gist of the theme of the film..
This film rocks in the first scene itself.. Rocks in the sense, not the Sivaji type of rock but a different way.. Ammu, an 8yr old girl who happens to be the daughter of a prostitute stands along with several other pros.. I think it stings me to use the word again and again.. So, i'll use pros in short.. 4 men come there and select the 4 women pros and go to their respective OFFICE rooms.. Then, Ammu asks her mom, " AMMA!! Avanga ellam mattum velayadaraanga.. Naan avangala madhri eppo ma velayadardhu??" Mom's reply," Neeyum periyavalaanadhum andha velayaatta velayadalam!!." Aaha... Scintillating start to the film, I thought.. I mean idhu allava Thaai paasam!!! Next scene, I see a girl who is being chased by some children.. But I cannot see the face of that girl.. All I can see is the BACK view of the girl... An exclamation by Raja here... Wonder what he saw!!! Then, she keeps on running, running(All back view only).. And suddenly, we come to know that she is the heroine of the film.. Ammu... A song depicting that she has come of age... And the next scene, the girl is ready to play the GAME!!! An auction for that girl.. And a 60yr old man gets the One-night stand with her for 1lac INR... Ammu doesnt know anything about the rules of the game sadly... The old man starts off the game by asking Ammu to do skipping... And some camera work here... A censor here over the camera man's work... The ups and downs of life of that girl Ammu, is being enjoyed by the man.. Then, some ice work over her navel and some wine over her body, and she starts to scream.. The other pros come to Ammu's rescue and bash the old man up... Whoa!! I thot I was writing a review but instead writing the whole film.. Sheesh!!! So, I would change my theme.. Instead of writing a review, I will write some of the greatest dialogues in the film... Parthiban goes to that holy place with his friend.. He sees Ammu there... Her Aanmeegam makes him drool over her... time for another picture...
Well!! I hope that picture depicts the role of the heroine Ammu in the film pretty well... Then comes a song where they both starr... The song is A/A and the saddest thing here is that Ammu gets to wear only the tops and not the bottoms!!! Romba low budget padam pola??? Parthiban proposes to marry her.. But she refuses saying some really valid reasons... Next punch dialogue coming up... Abishek(of kolangal fame) spends a night with Ammu... At that time, he pours ice cream on her and says
"Ammu... Naan unakkum ICE vekkaren nu thappa nenakkadhe.. Nee romba azhaga irukke.. Naan unna vechukkava??" Ammu throws that piece of ice cream on his face and replies, " Naan Ice a thatti vittutennu thappa nenaikkadhe.. Enna kattikkave aal irukku"... Semma punch ma.. The film started and within one hour, it was intermission time... RAJA's dialogue during intermission, "Ennangada idhu??? Vandhanga.. Kiss adichaanga... Katti pidichaanga.. Matter pottanga.. Interval vittutaanga.. Enna padam da idhu" This dialogue in itself proved the class of the film... Adhavudhu, oru tea-glass ku kooda prayojanam illadaha first half... Atleast, second half aavudhu nalla irukkumnu paatha adhu innoru kodumai...
Adhuthu punch dialogue endha scene nu pictura paathale therinjurkumnu nenaikaren.. Parthiban marries Ammu and its the first night scene... Ammu asks him about the decorations.. He tells her that its the first night.. At that time, another punch yet sentimental dialogue from Ammu, " Enakku first nighta?? Naan idhu varikkum aambalainga illama night spend pannadhe kedayadhu..." Parthiban's reply, " Adhnaala dhaan first nightnu sonnen... Nee nalla nimmadhiya thoongara first night idhu dhaan.. Adha thaan sonnen..." Aaha... Enna sentimant pa!!! Pullarikkudhu!!! Next, dialogue.. Parthiban is typing the story of his book, Ammuvagiya Naan in his old type-writer.. Ammu comes and asks about the type-writer... He tells him that its his mom's and that it was the reason how, she earned money and which eventually led to his successful stint... The dialogue ," Ella veetlayum, pullaingala avanga amma appa adichu valappanga... Aana idha(type-writer) adichu dhaan enga amma enna valathaanga"... Sentimentaam la!!! Next, the scene where his friend tries to make parthiban realize the truth... Adhavudhu, Parthiban supports his wife to the fullest extent... At that time, the villain who is no1 but the old man whom we encountered in the first scene, who also happens to be the Akila Ulaga Thamizh Ilakkiya Sanga thalaivar, (Enna Kodumai Saravanan!!!) tells Parthiban that if he wanted to win the award he has to send Ammu for one n8 stand with him.. Parthiban beats him black and blue... The friend then calls him and tells him the dialogue, " Dei.. Naan solradha kaelu da.. Un lakshyam dhaanda unakku mukkiyam... Nee award vaanganum da... Andha Pachai Thev....... kaaga un awarda ezhakanuma?? Yosi da" which is incidentally heard by Ammu herself... Then, the next day, Ammu goes there to fulfil her husband's dream and the villain's hunger... But ends up killing the villain.. And suddenly the next scene was, the awards ceremony, where Parthiban receives the award with his wife... Happy ending!!!Aana kedaisi varikkum Enna solla varaannu dhaan puriyala...

"+"
Ammu oru BIG positive.. Apdiye oru Pachai _____ look... Fits exactly to the character... No more positives...

"-"
Indha padame oru periya Negative dhaan... Worstest ever!!! The film has no story.. No base... Just another skin show... Disappointment that Parthiban who has acted in many good films like housefull, Kudaikul mazhai etc has acted in such a worst film...
Rating: 1 lac for Ammu...
1 out of 10 for this film...

I thought the film would have been good.. atleast for its new concept. Not many people would have the guts to have embarked on a such a film like Parthibhan. But going by your narration, I agree that the story needed a little more depth.

I dont think it would garner commercial success, but maybe would receive good critical review, but I cannot say anything without watching the movie for myself and deciding for myself...

Wiyoats
