Aadai Movie - Tagline:

Amal Paul stuns everyone in this watchable movie

Aadai Movie - Story:

Suthanthira Kodi aka Kamini (played by Amala Paul) is a bold free-spirited girl who is always looking for a challenge. She works in a television channel and her mother (played by Sriranjani) is worried about her.

Kamini’s office mates organize a birthday party for her and it turns wild after a series of incidents. The next morning she finds herself locked in her office completely naked. What happens to her forms the rest of the story.

Aadai Movie - Actor Performances:

Amala Paul was upbeat about this film and one can understand why she was so confident before the release. She has shouldered the film right from the first frame.

Sriranjini who plays Amala Paul’s mother is a delight to watch. Her performance also raises a question about how underrated she is despite giving brilliant performances.
Ramya Subramanian as Amala Paul’s friend has done a neat job with her limited role.

Aadai Movie - Positives:

Director Rathnakumar should be applauded for picking a bold script like Aadai after his fun debut flick Meyadha Maan. Aadai addresses several important issues women face in the society.

The film does not indulge in spoon feeding the audience and the filmmaker has incorporated a lot of metaphors that will keep the audience hooked through the film.
Amala Paul is the soul of the movie and as an unapologetic woman in the 21st century has wowed everyone with her flawless performance.
Cinematographer Vijay Karthik Kannan is the second hero of Aadai. For about 40 minutes, Amala Paul appears nude and not even for 1 minute there was any vulgarity in screen.

Aadai Movie - Negatives:

Aadai is not a perfect film as it has a lot of logical loopholes which is a major put off for the audience. For a film with a great intention, such mistakes dilute the impact of the film.

Also, the climax of the film does not create a great impact that it should. If the director had concentrated more on the details and second half, Aadai would have been a better watch.

Aadai Movie - Verdict:

Aadai is a film that should be applauded for its intention. Barring logical loopholes, the film is good for a one-time watch.
