Aarya is a 2007 Tamil film directed by Balasekaran. The film starred Madhavan, Bhavana, Prakash Raj, Vadivelu, Praveen Kumar, Tejashree and Devan in major roles. The film's music was composed by Mani Sharma. It was dubbed in Hindi as My Dear Big B.
Deepika (Bhavana) is an arrogant rich girl. A medical college student, she dictates terms at the college. Sister of local don Kasi (Prakash Raj), she is feared by students, professors and even the Dean of the College. Enter Aariya (Madhavan), a final year student who comes to Chennai Medical College from Coimbatore. A soft-spoken Aariya runs into Deepika. They develop cold shoulders. In a fit of rage, she kidnaps Aariya's sister. But Aariya faces her challenges daringly. However, she soon falls in love with him.
But he is not ready to marry the sister of a ruffian. The remaining story tells us how the brother and sister put pressure on Aariya to become a rowdy so that Aariya's status is equal enough as Kasi's status so that Aariya can marry Kasi's sister Deepika.
Meanwhile, "Snake" Babu (Vadivelu) is elected the area councillor, and has a few encounters with Dr. Aariya, and one with Deepika. He is the main source of comic relief for the film.
