The movie ‘Raavan’ is an upcoming Bollywood Movie which is directed by Mani Ratnam. The star cast of the film included Abhishek Bachchan, Aishwariya Rai and Chiyaan Vikram. The music of the film has been composed by the famous award winning music composer AR Rahman on the lyrics been penned down by Gulzar. The movie is all set to release on 18 June, 2010.

What the film is all about… the movie Ravaan is regarded as a current Ramayan with political undertones and the narrative of the film rotates around the kidnapping of a top cop’s wife by a Naxal head. Accompanied by a policeman Laxman and a modern Hanuman, Ram goes in seek out of Raavan and his wife. The film was at the same time shot in Hindi and Tamil.

USP: Vikram, who acts Ram in the Hindi version and Raavan in the Tamil one, says, “You may walk into the theatre thinking it is a take on the classic – you may even find matching – but when you walk out, you’d have forgotten the connection,” adding that, that’s just what happened to him after he done shooting.
