Yellow Apache from 'Ayan' heads to AVM heritage museum; decision to celebrate movie's legacy

ayan-movie-bike

The yellow TVS Apache (2009 model) bike was sought after back in the days only for the movie 'Ayan'. Director K V Anand was a cinematographer first and had mastered how to prudently use color palettes in his works. K V Anand's movies had memorable tunes from different music directors, however, the director himself was a maven when it came to shooting songs at their aesthetic best. The songs and the collaborated visuals had an effect such that whenever heard, our minds rattled in love. The yellow Apache stood different in 'Ayan' albeit being used in myriad other films. Apache was not any sports bike or any gargantuan build to be amazed about. It was all for the aesthetics the vehicle brought into the movie— and by a large the omnipresence the vehicle had alongside an ensemble cast.

Actor Suriya took Tamannaah Bhatia in this same bike to waft along the streets of Chennai. The movie slowly turned into a cult classic over the years and the songs were cherished and revered. Now, popular production house AVM Productions have decided to celebrate the legacy of the film by adding the famed yellow Apache to their newly started AVM heritage museum. More than 40 cars and 20 motorcycles that appeared in movies from the 1960s are preserved in the museum. 'TN 10 A 5060' yellow Apache from 'Ayan' will be the latest entrant into the vault. The decision from AVM productions happened coincidentally on the birthday of actor Suriya himself.
