Fourteen years after its original release, Paiyaa will be re-released in theatres on April 11. Directed by Lingusamy, the movie was released in Telugu as Awaara and received a positive response. While Awaara in Telugu can be streamed online on Aha and OTTplay Premium, Paiyaa in Tamil is all set to be released again. And in celebration of this, we list 5 reasons why Paiyaa is a must-watch.

Yuvan Shankar Raja’s foot-tapping songs

Whether you watch the film on big screens or at your home theatres, Paiyaa's songs are sure to make you dance and recollect the first time you have seen the film. From En Kadhal Solla to Adada Mazhada and Edho Onnu, Paiyaa album is a melting pot of melodies and thumping beats. The visuals of the song also add to the great addition to the songs.

Karthi and Tamannaah’s onscreen chemistry


Karthi and Tamannaah paired up for the first time in Paiyaa. Their onscreen portrayal of romance is the reason the movie was a success. Paiyaa is essentially a romance drama that takes place during a road trip. The actors convince you with their portrayals of their respective characters.

A blend of romance and action genres 

Paiyaa is about a man who is requested by a woman to drive her from Bangalore to Mumbai to save herself from a certain group of men. However, the man has a hidden past in Mumbai that comes out after the duo reaches the city. Paiyaa blends romance and action genres, making it a commercial entertainer. There is plenty of action, music, and romance, that is a sure-shot recipe for entertainment.

A summer entertainer

With the scorching sun and summer upon us, Paiyaa is a film that can cool you down with its entertainment quotient. With its locations ranging from Bangalore to Mumbai, and not to forget the coniferous canopy in which the Adada Mazhada song was shot, Paiyaa is a feast to the eyes. The film, which also has good music, will make for a perfect movie night with your loved ones, family and friends.

Technical brilliance

Paiyaa has cinematography by Madhi and editing by Anthony Gonsalves, both of which elevate the screenplay and add to the raciness of the film. Since the film is largely a road trip, the crisp edits and picturesque landscapes are sure to add to your overall movie watching experience.
