Mani Ratnam,A Name That Every Moviegoer Respects.
The Master Storyteller Has Gifted Gems To The Industry.His Latest Venture Raavan Is Surrounded By High Expectations.Like His Last Outing 'GURU' He Has Cast Abhishek Bachchan And Aishwarya Rai Bachchan.Raavan Is A Modern Day Adaptation Of Ramayana.The Story Is Borrowed From The Epic.How-ever Mani Ratnam Has Included Some Turns And Twist
But The Main Culprit Here Is The Screenplay.The Screenplay Is Not Engaging.The First Half Is Very Dull.The Film Gains Track In Pre-Interval Portions
The Second Half Begins On The Right Note But The Film Again Loses Track Towards The Finale.The Climax Is Very Long And Boring.Dialouges Are Good.
Background Music Is Decent.Music Is Good.Action Is Fantastic.The Pre-Climax Brigde Fight Is Simply
Awesome.Cinematography Is Topnotch.The Visuals Are
A Treat To Watch.Direction By Mani Ratnam Is Quite
Decent.The Standard Raised By Mani Ratnam Is Very High.RAAVAN Fails To Meet Those Standards.Coming To Performances,Abhishek Plays The Title Role.He Tries To Give His Best But In The End His Performance Comes As Just Decent.Due To His Sketchy Characterization He Does Not Look Convincing.Vikram Is Good.Govinda Is Average.
Nikhil Dwivedi Is Alright.Ravi Kissen Is Superb In A Role That Fits Him To T.Raavan Completely Belongs To AISHWARYA RAI BACHCHAN.The Actress Delivers A Knockout Performance.Her Display Of Each And Every Emotion Is A Treat To Watch.Also She Looks Gorgeous In The Movie.Priyamani Is First
Rate.Ajay Gehi Is Good.Overall,RAAVAN Is Quite Disappointing Due To Its Dull Screenplay.
