The most anticipated film of recent times is all set to hit the screens in a couple of weeks and it is none other than Abhishek Bachchan, Aishwarya Rai and Vikram starrer Raavana directed by Maniratnam. After experimenting with different genres, Maniratnam this time has reportedly made a film which is a more of a modern day version of the great Indian epic Ramayana in which the wife of Lord Rama, Sita was abducted by the demon king of Lanka, Raavana. It is being said that this modern version will have a new twist of the great epic.
The film is a confrontation between Dev a policeman and Beera a tribal. Dev manages to rip open Beeras world which changes lives, changes fortunes. Beera though injured, but enraged hits back at Dev by abducting his wife t a jungle. The forest becomes the settling ground between good and evil. As said earlier, a lot of hopes are pinned on this film not only for its story, screenplay and the director, but also for its ensemble star cast. Apart from Abhishek Bachchan, Aishwarya Rai and Vikram being the main protagonists, Govinda, Ravi Kishan, Nikhil Dwivedi, Priyamani, and Tejaswini Kolhapure play prominent roles in the film.
The film will be dubbed in Tamil and Telugu and the soundtracks are composed by the legendary A R Rahman himself. Jungle plays a main role in the film and the film has been shot in some exotic locations including the forests of Kerala, Ooty, Jhansi and Mahabaleshwar.
