What was that 'please' about? Guess 1: "Please Aunty" was a little too risque
a name for our censors, and a chopping off of the former half saw the makers resort
to an old trick to gain publicity. Guess 2: they're saying that you need not say
please to aunties, but it's okay to say sorry afterward. Guess 3: they're pleading
with you to watch the movie. Guess 4... oh, lay off it? Okay, here goes.
Nani (Ganesh) comes to work in Sheela's (Jayalalitha) household. He is a distant relative of Jayalalitha's husband, a businessman on the move who is so busy building his empire of riches that he hardly has any time for his wife. The lonely Sheela, who longs to be in her husband's arms but can't, realizes that Nani is pretty eager to have a sexual experience with her. Driven by desire, she goes ahead and lures him into doing it.
Life is a bed of roses as both of them get their due share of fun. Simultaneously,
the film shows the fun-filled lives of four college students who do nothing but
drink, dance and make merry. Nani becomes a society bird and starts going to pubs
and discotheques where he meets these four guys. He makes friends with them and
helps them in need.
But soon Nani's game is up as Sheela's husband comes to know of their illicit affair and sends Nani away. And now troubles begin for Nani. The remaining part of the film shows how Nani ends up becoming a misfit in life and loses it in the process.
From the title it should be clear that this film was made to cash in on the super-success
of Bachelors. And it doesn't fail on that count. Only, the censors were too serious
and snipped the dialogues wherever they turned lewd. But there is nothing to worry.
The film keeps the guys on josh as it has ample scenes that will titillate
the young adults keeping whom in mind the film was made.
As the posters claim, the film indeed has 'a message for the youth'. That is that,
if one ends up with all the wrong habits in the salad years of youth, you are
bound to be consigned to the dungeon, not knowing where you'll end up. Though
the film has the Jayalalitha-Ganesh one-night stands as the focus, the miserable
life Ganesh ekes out after being thrown out manages to draw the audiences to this
Then there is Uttej and company who talk about bikes, babes and booze, and when Uttej has the same thing happening in his own house, it becomes an eye-opener for him and his group - they try to save the life of Ganesh, but in vain.
It is neither a bad film nor a good one, just an ordinary flick ostensibly made to educate young viewers who are obsessed with their colony's aunties. 'Ostensibly' because, don't you know why really?
