Its been a couple of months since we are watching the trailer of Raavan and counting days for it to hit the silver screen. All our waiting and excitement surrounding Mani Ratnam’s Raavan ends today as it releases today on June 18, 2010.

Raavan has created a huge expectations among the fans. Why not, when its been tagged as a Mani Ratnam’s film starring Bollywood’s number one real life couple Abhishek and Aishwarya. The trio ( Mani Ratnam, Abhishek and Aishwarya ) has previously given us a super duper hit movie in form of Guru.

So far, Abhi-Ash had done seventh movie together, including Raavan. Although they didn’t click in Dhai Akshar Prem Ke, Kuch naa Kaho, Umrao Jaan as reel life couple, in movies like Guru and Sarkar Raj their chemistry was very much appreciated by the audience.

In Raavan, people will get to see a portrayal of their favorite mythologies, The Ramayan. Abhishek is playing the character of Beera, who kidnap Ragini (Aishwarya), wife of a Super Cop Dev (South star Chiyaan Vikram). Unlike Ramayan, here Sita, I mean Ragini falls in love with her kidnapper ‘Raavan’. Beera also has a conflict going into his mind regarding Ragini. He refuses to kill Ragini.

Aishwarya looks graceful portraying the role of a classical dancer. Her acting in the perplexing situation especially, after being kidnapped, captivates the audience.

The Tamil version of Raavan is titled as Raavanan starring Vikram and Aishwarya, while the Telugu movie is coming with the title Villain.

A big head-ache and a big disappointment. This movie is nothing but a lot of confusion, with no poetic justice. Vikram doesn’t look anywhere close to Lord Rama, his character looks cunning and cruel on the other hand Beera looks more compassionate in nature. Not sure what exactly Mani Ratnam wants to convey. Comparing this movie with the great epic would be an insult to the latter.
