Ayalaan movie review


Sharad Kelkar, who owns  a multinational company that deals with natural gas, is responsible for a gas leakage accident which claims the lives of many.

The company wants to extract “Nova Gas” from an abandoned mine in Chennai.

Meanwhile, aliens are aware of the issues on Earth. They believe human beings are the worst species on Earth.

So, an alien is sent to Earth in search of “Sparc”, a solid substance that helps in the extraction of “Nova Gas”.

What did the alien do after landing on Earth, was it able to accomplish it mission forms the rest of the story.


Directed by Ravikumar Rajendran, Ayalaan has the simple storyline of an alien coming down to earth with a mission, but the film is not about the storyline but it’s intent to create small moments consistently that keep the audiences engaged fully.

With a simple plot, Ravikumar has delivered a neat and engaging film with a subtle message.

Sivakarthikeyan proved his mettle in comedy scenes. He is at his best and has done complete justice to his role.

The rapport that he shares on screen with the alien has worked out big time.

The supporting cast of Yogi Babu, Karunakaran and Rakul Preet have all done their part well.

The antagonists Sharad Kelkar and Isha Kopikar have helped in taking the proceedings forward.

The film will be remembered as one of the best VFX outings in Tamil Cinema.

Ayalaan is terrific with the cinematography being superb and the editing almost on point.

AR Rahman’s music creates the much needed impact for the film.
