The pundit's son Kundan (Dhanush) has fallen for the girl at first sight. That they're both kids makes us dismiss it as a meaningless crush. But a few years later, the boy is still in love with the girl, Zoya (Sonam Kapoor). When she's in school, he follows her around holding her hand and getting slapped in the process. Finally, she relents because of his "consistency". The film shifts cities when Zoya gets into JNU (Jawaharlal Nehru University), and through her, we are introduced to the idealistic and political culture of the place. She discovers a long-lost strength as she confronts and then falls for student leader Akram (Abhay Deol). The film takes a turn when Zoya returns to her hometown after eight long years only to find some things changed, and others surprisingly the same. Written by

Raanjhanaa, what can I say about the film!! As an avid film buff I have compel to write this bollywood movie review. It's an unique movie, so bollywood but so unique and refreshing! It is a definitive multi-layered story woven beautifully with a great but complex script.
Script is complex, multi-layered but transparent to viewer. It starts from boy meets girl and narrates philosophy, dedication, progression of life with love. And how it turns to an unique love story that should not be missed.
The editing is very good at first half, but it should be more stringent in the second half. Cinematography is marvelous, Baranasi can be this beautiful? then you have to watch it.
Songs and lyrics woven beautifully in the story. You can not side-line the songs and watch the movie; it is practically lyrical story. AR Rehman creates a blend of true Indian flavored music here.
Dialogues are also playing a crucial part in the film. From witty to cliché, from orthodox to unorthodox, it varies and triumphs.
When you are seeing the acting of the film, Dhanush has really become Kundan. Dhanush never existed in this film, only Kundan has. That should sum up the acting depth infused in the film as Kundan. Welcome Dhanush to bollywood. Sonam is beautiful and well enacted the role. She is more compelling towards ending of the film.
Another advantage director uses in his film that is supporting actors. Special mention to Murari(Kundan's friend) and Bindiya. Both have the best one-liners of the film and their acting was just apt. Abhay Deol is also good.
Director Mr. Rai presents you a story with great attributes. Celebrate, cheers, empathizes and of course fall in love....with a bit of sacrifice.....Raanjhanaa !!!
