ADA…A Way of Life (2010)

AdaAWayOfLife2010

ADA…A Way of Life (2010) is a Hindi musical film written and directed by Tanvir Ahmad, with music by A.R. Rahman, described by Time Magazine in 2005 as “India’s most prominent movie songwriter” and “by some computations, the best-selling recording artist in history”. Rahman composed the songs for ADA in 2001, after completing the score for Lagaan, but Ahmad’s plans for the film were shelved. Though the music was composed for the original concept, the film features a new script as well as different actors, as it stars debuting actor Ayaan Ahmed, the director’s son. Along with its notable composer, the soundtrack also features award-winning singer Jayachandran, contributing vocals for the first time to a Hindi language film.

The soundtrack was released in May 2008. The film was scheduled to be released on 31 December 2009. The promo videos have already been out and the movie is slated for a release on 24 December 2010.

Plot

The director, Tanvir Ahmed, describes this film as “a tale of a noble father, a religious mother and a gangster son in Mumbai City”.

It is the tale of Ayaan, son of a Noble human being Anil Anand, and a Spiritual Mother Aamina. Ayaan’s gentle world is turned upside down when Anil starts receiving death threats if he goes ahead with his testimony against some criminals.

The world of moral certainties crumbles in the face of contemporary disarray, as the murder of his father sets Ayaan on a course of revenge and killing against the criminals of Mumbai, as he becomes a contract killer. The conflicted character of Ayaan Anand is a modern tragedy as he becomes part of the criminal stream, even as he searches for truth and happiness.

ADA is a film of the moment, as it compels us to re-examine the youth-crime phenomenon in a very poignant and freshly told story.
