Bollywood’s reigning acting couple Abhishek Bachchan and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan reunite with the Guru team of director Mani Ratnam and Oscar and Grammy winning composer A.R. Rahman in the highly anticipated new feature film Raavan which opens worldwide on June 18 in both Hindi and Tamil versions. Also in the film are South superstar Vikram as well as Govinda, Ravi Kishan and Priyamani.
Raavan is not a story, it is a world.
Beera Munda – Undisputed, Unlawful, Untamed
Dev Pratap Sharma – The Punisher; the Law, the Righteous
Ragini – Conscience, Beauty; Music
Dev falls in with Ragini, a spunky classical dancer who is as unconventional as him. They get married and he takes up his new post in Lal Maati, a small town in northern India. A town where the world of law is not the police but Beera, a tribal who has, over the years, shifted the power equation of the place from the ruling to the have-nots of the area. Dev knows that the key to bringing order to any place is not to vanquish the big fish; in this case – Beera.
In one stroke Dev manages to rip open Beera’s world, and set in motion a change of events which will claim lives, changes fortune. Beera, injured but enraged hits back starting a battle that draws Dev, Beera and Ragini into the jungle. The jungle which is dense, confusing, scary. And in this journey they must confront their own truth. A journey which will test their beliefs, convictions and emotions. Emotions which are as scary and confusing as the forest.
The forest becomes the battleground. The battle between good and evil, between Dev and Beera, between Ram and Raavan. But when the lines dividing good and evil are blurring fast, whose side will you take. When hate turns to love and the good starts looking evil. Which side will you battle for?
Love is the battle that nobody wins but everyone must fight. Even this Raavan.
