    Aaj Ka Raavan Hood

    Raavan rating: 3 out of 10

    By Pritam Roy(18 Jun 2010)

    A few weeks earlier, Prakash Jha presented us with today's Raajneeti packaged Mahabharata. Now, Mani Sir is here with his adaptation of the other great epic, Ramayan with the villain as hero or anti-hero, as you may like to call him.

    Also, a couple of weeks back, Robin Hood came visiting our theaters. And this time, our home grown Raavan from the Red belt carries a hood or a cape, if you like and he likes to flaunt it with style. And he is not the villain any more. He also likes to help the people who are oppressed by the society. He is the messiah of the masses. ... » read more

    Hey Ram!

    By Pravir (21 Jun 2010)

    The mother of all good vs. evil mythologies is back again, in probably the biggest canvas and, on paper, one of the best crew in the country having half a dozen movie directors associated with it. So is the outcome as volcanic as another of the epic adaptation released a few weeks ago, or it is too many cooks? It falls somewhere in between…

    Lal Maati ka saint sinner Beera Munda (Abhishek) is a rebel against the system and has humongous people following. His brothers Siddharth (Ravi Kishan) and Hari (Ajay Gehi) are his shield. Encounter specialist cop Dev Pratap ... » read more

    One more Insult…Of the Great Epic!

    Raavan rating: 2 out of 10

    By Aakash Barvalia(23 Jun 2010)

    Raajneeti was adopted from Mahabharata, and Prakash Jha didn’t succeed to grasp that kind of attention from the audiences, but still atleast he got some stars. But can’t believe that the man who has made the legends like Bombay, Yuva, Guru and etc. can make this kind of disaster. Very badly written and very-very disappointingly adopted script from the great epic “Ramayan” and from the famous tale “Robinhood”.

    Actually no need to describe it as you all know what Ramayan is all about and what Robinhood was doing. Still, it can be explain in just few lines.

    Mani’s best craft work!

    Raavan rating: 4 out of 10

    By Niti Parekh(23 Jun 2010)

    Mani Ratnam, a talented visual storyteller who directs action crisply and fills the screen with striking images. Mani's shot-taking is expectedly, a class part -- this time, he experiments with multiple cameras offering multiple takes of the same sequence and does it effectively too. His back-and- forth method of story-telling fries your senses. He adds a bit of the Veerappan touch to Beera's character but it's totally half-baked. Actually Ratnam takes his time with his desultory first half, creating stunning scenery but listless characters. It’s only well into the second ... » read more

    Super cast…but didn’t saved the film!

    Raavan rating: 3 out of 10

    By Mitesh Shah(23 Jun 2010)

    Abhishek Bachchan can shoulder all kinds of roles doesn’t leave us surprised but what does is the Mani used the actor. As Gurubhai aka Dhirubhai, Bachchan delivered one of his best performances. Bachchan is made to snarl and scowl and gibber and he does it all faithfully, but leaves little impact. He gives this role everything and his sincerity is commendable. But by asking him to make faces at the camera and mouthing silly lines, Ratnam simply makes his character a caricature. His body language is so stiff that his ability to blend into the dense forests is always in ... » read more

    Mediocre At Best

    Raavan rating: 0 out of 10

    By Anonymous (21 Jun 2010)

    Alright, alright, I know you’ve already heard it from a million places: Raavan is bad. You’ve probably shelved your weekend plans to go watch it, and you’re right. I should’ve shelved mine too, but Mani Ratnam was enough motivation to go watch it. Of course, the movie didn’t give me any motivation whatsoever to not fall asleep. (By the by, Raavan could be a cure for insomnia.)

    Anyway, you know, it’s very easy to judge a movie, I use a simple benchmark. If I talk to and kid around with whoever I’ve gone to watch the movie with, then the movie ain’t good. I’m a ... » read more

    Dus Sar ‘DARD’…..

    Raavan rating: 5 out of 10

    By Divya Solgama(18 Jun 2010)

    In 90’s Hindi films witnessed lots of changes and gave us many talents and gems. Two of them came from South India – Maniratnam and A.R.Rahman. Both kept of growing more and more with their next films. Maniratnam kept on increasing his level of work in Hindi Films by giving us Bombay and his best work Dil Se. after Dil se he fumbled a bit in Yuva and Slipped more down in Guru. But the slipping down in compared to other film makers is much much higher, as he had set his standards very very high than the normal film makers. So Maniratnam comes back again with his current ... » read more

    Believe me this is movie which i watched in hall and I wanted to run away at interval after a long time.It was at par with himesh reshamiya's movie,so u can imagine how the movie was.Following is the list of reasons why i didn't like this movie.

    • Extremely poor screenplay that does not do justice with the characters and importance of a hero factor is missing in the movie.
    • I would like to say Abhishek is not villain in the movie basic villain is the writer of this movie.
    Slow tempo and unconvincing execution pulls down the movie.
    • There is no love ... » read more

    Raavan rating: 6 out of 10

    By Kaushik Dasari(23 Jun 2010)

    Raavan is a different movie, one incapable of being judged by the quintessential formula movie criteria, just as the title character of Beera. Intriguing one moment and scary the other…the movie captivates in parts.
    Starting with the cast, Abhishek Bachchan plays the role of a villager who is supposed to be at ten places at once. He is a law unto himself and has his own parameters of measuring right and wrong. Patronized by people of his village, he also manages to terrify those who go against him.
    Aishwarya Rai Bachchan excels in certain scenes. I particularly ... » read more
