Raanjhanaa : Review

Raanjhanaa, as the name suggests is all about love & the movie is an absolute synonym to it. The plot of the movie is based around Banaras (Varanasi). A common hindu boy, Kundan starts liking a muslim girl, Zoya. In an attempt to impress her & get her love, he goes through a lot of problems, like being slapped in public 15 times to walking on a railway platform with  his bicycle. He gets hit by a lot of problems and eventually has to see her love move to Aligarh as the latter's family came to know about their love. He still keeps thinking about her & eventually after 8 years gets to know that her love is returning back.

The performances by Dhanush as Kundan, Sonam Kapoor as Zoya were awesome. Swara Bhaskar as Bindiya performed amazingly, as did Shilpi Marwaha as Rashmi.



Kundan has performed amazingly in the movie and there are times when you feel so closely connected to Kundan as if he is a person next door. His simplicity,his innocence, his smile, his natural acting will make you feel as if, it is you on the screen. He performs some of the most soul touching performances in the movie that will keep your mouth wide open.

Zoya plays the role very beautifully as she tries to find love between two people. A lady that has been betrayed by Akram, a man she fell for, and Kundan who fell for her ever since he was a kid. She tries to get out of the trauma & really can't make a choice of which way to go,plus, the rising status of Kundan in AICP(Jasjit's party) also makes her feel inferior. She can't buy the fact that a new guy & a murderer of Jasjit (as she believes) reach to such heights. So she plans something. What? Well,you need to watch the movie for that.

Rashmi plays Jasjit's brother. A powerful role that will leave you thinking about the powerful acting of Shilpi Marwaha. I am sure you know her, "The Lady in Black Kurta". She is another pillar in the movie just as Kundan,Zoya & Jasjit. She has a great message & stands for what is right during the movie. She supports Kundan n matter what others say, although she lost her brother. She puts her point firmly & has done a powerful performance.

Swara Bhaskar has performed beautifully as Bindiya & leaves a mark,thanks to her powerful performance. Some witty, some incredible dialogues.


Arvind Gaur Sir as is impressive in his role as Gupta Ji.

and last but certainly not the least,Mohammed Zeeshan Ayyub impresses all with his comic timing & witty one liners.

The movie is filled with love, emotion, excitement,phenomenal dialogues & a lot of other accolades. I can bet that you would not like to miss this amazing movie. The movie will give you moments of joy, tears, happiness & a great heart touching message on love.

The movie has got great direction by Aanand L Rai. Great cinematography by Vishal Sinha. Music is very soothing to the ears, and why not, It is by the legend A.R. Rehman. The movie leaves a very powerful mark on your mind.

****1/2 is my rating to t his great movie.

So what are you waiting for,put on your movie glasses. Plan out this weekend with friends & family members & go on a love drive with the movie Raanjhanaa.
