Raavan is an original film work presented by the cinematic tour de force that is director Mani Ratnam, Academy Award Winner and music maestro A.R Rahman, and Indian cinema royalty and off-screen couple Aishwarya Rai and Abhishek Bachchan who reunite following the critically acclaimed Guru.
Drenched with atmosphere, emotion and gripping tension, Raavan is an evocative cinematic masterpiece that will draw audiences into the innermost depths of the human psyche. Directed by Mani Ratnam who is to be honoured with the Jaeger LeCoultre Glory to the Filmmaker Award 2010 at the 67th Venice International Film Festival, Raavan's; stellar cast is spearheaded by Aishwarya Rai and Abhishek Bachchan who perform their most challenging roles to date. They unite on screen in avatars never before seen by cinemagoers and are joined by the undisputed superstar of South Indian cinema Vikram, alongside supporting talent, Govinda, Ravi Kishan and Priyamani. Raavan's hypnotizing visuals are perfectly combined with a haunting soundtrack from Multi Academy Award Winner, A.R. Rahman.
Mani Ratnam's milestone adaptation of the ancient Sanskrit epic, The Ramayana, is equally relevant to contemporary society. A thought-provoking film which is sure to leave audiences questioning the core values of the human condition, Raavan; will stay with you long after the film's credits roll.
