Movie Story

Ashok Kumar (Ajith) plants bombs in several areas around Mumbai city. As his intention is not to kill innocent people, he informs about the bombs to police, who manages to clear the crowds in time. Arjun (Arya), a top hacker in the state, is on his way to Mumbai for an interview meets his college mate Maya (Nayanthara). They share their college days memories in the journey and Arjun reveals about his love with Anitha (Taapsee Pannu).

Arjun tardily realizes that Maya has trapped him into playing a game schemed by Ashok. As he is threatened to kill, Arjun starts helping Ashok. Angered by the death and destruction caused by Ashok, Arjun secretly informs Prakash (Kishore), an honest police officer, who is investigating the bomb blast. Finally, Arjun reveals his past how his life changed drastically with fraudulence of politicians and police officials. His friend ACP Sanjay (Rana) is died in terrorist attack because of faulty bulletproof jackets.

The rest of the story is about how he takes revenge on the Home Minister Mahadev Rane (Mahesh Manjrekar) and his associate (Atul Kulkarni) who are involved in the scam.

Aata Arambam is set in the backdrop of the 26/11 serial bomb blasts in Mumbai. The Tamil version Arambam was a biggest blockbuster of the year. Ajith was seen stylish and he portrayed his role with grace. His costumes, diction and body language are admirable. Arya and Tapsee Pannu entertains in first half. Especially, Tapsee mesmerizes with her innocent acts. Nayanthara is other big asset. The voluptuous lady oozed enough oomph in few scenes. Though Rana Daggubati’s role is brief, he makes big impact. Kishore, Suman Ranganathan and Atul Kulkarni are good. Akshara Gowda looked glamorous. 

Coming to technical aspect, Vishnuvardhan made the movie elegantly. He dealt first half superbly with racy narration, but the pace slows down in second half. Om Prakash’s cinematography is one of major highlights. Sreekar Prasad’s editing is mediocre. Yuvan Shankar Raja audio is not up to mark and his background score is okay. Production values are top notch.
Movie Result: Average
Movie Punchline (Movie Talk): 1st Half T20, 2nd Half Test Match
