Storyline

Karthi (Shiva), an engineering graduate with an attitude, is on the look out for a job. He does not seem to be much serious in seeking employment while his friends try their best to settle him. He spots Tamannah (Charu) in a bus stop and it is love at first sight. He finds her on a couple of occasions later and in fact misses an interview in her pursuit. Destiny seems to have something good waiting for him and he gets to spend the most beautiful phase of his life, giving her a ride in the car while waiting to pick the owner of the car at the railway station. Life takes an exciting turn from this point for Karthi who accepts to drop her in Mumbai and thus begins Paiyaa's journey of romance, action and emotions on a highway with a few turns, some with caution and some without.

A Wonderful Journey
20 April 2010 | by sreenivas1988See all my reviews

Paiyya...again a superb entertainer after Director Lingusamy's RUN.... This is Karthi's first commercial film. Karthi (Shiva) is a stylish guy having a gud friends circle and looking for a job which he is not much interested of. He loves to be casual and cool.The movie starts in Bangalore - The Garden City where he meets the gorgeous girl Tamannaah(Charu)and falls in love with her as usual like every hero.

The journey from Bangalore to Mumbai is entertaining and very romantic. His car driving and stunts are great and awesome. A very good background music and effects is an additional quality to the film. Racing maniac and car maniac will jus lov it!! The selection of car (Mitsubishi Lancer) by the director is good. The drive at night is also nice.

The songs are all awesome both melodious as well as fast track. Poongaatre poongaatre song rocks. Very good work by Yuvan Shankar Raja. Totally even if there is not much story involved, because of the thrill, suspense, action, journey and not to forget Karthi's dialogues and expressions, the movie is simply superb.

Vrooooooooooooom!!!!!!
