Aalukkoru Aasai (English: Different stokes for different folks) is an Indian Tamil-language comedy drama film directed by V. Sekhar, starring Sathyaraj, Meena, and Vadivelu.

Plot[edit]

Sathyaraj dreams of marrying an educated employed girl, of building a dream house of his own, and having just one child. But the wife (Meena) he gets, thanks to the trick played by his scheming orthodox grandparents, turns out to be an illiterate rustic whose dreams are confined to marrying a swarthy man, having a dozen kids and visiting all the temples around. Soon all the dreams of the wife came true and the husband's dream was being destroyed one by one. Vadivelu hoodwinking his own wife (Kalpana) and carrying on unabashedly with his philandering activities is pedestrian comedy. So the husband was quite mad at the wife and his grandparents. Later his friend(Vadivelu) a hooker (Manthara) who develops a soft corner for him. Later the husband and his friend left their family and stayed at the hooker's house for a short period. In the end the husband went back to his wife and stayed happily.

Reception[edit]

Bizhat wrote "The whole film looks like a stage play and all the characters speak lengthy dialogues, testing ones patience.In this age of technical advancement the director V.Shekar takes us forty years back with his story and screenplay".[3] BBthots wrote "Aalukkoru Aasai seems suspiciously like a movie that was started with only the basic premise of a conflict in hand and no ideas about the resolution of the conflict. The movie sets up an interesting situation and even manages to raise some laughs along the way. But it then gets lost completely and never recovers. The director has no clue on the direction to adopt, whether with the storyline or with the characters of the main players. The result is a movie with a confusing storyline and characters that are stupid and easy to dislike".[4] Chennai Online wrote "it looked like director V.sekhar had the potential plot to build up on his story-line and to justify his title. But it doesn't quite turn out that way! After the initial promise, the script soon loses focus, the issues get muddled, and the dreams and desires of the characters take a back seat".[5]
