A 1995 blockbuster!
27 March 2009 | by See all my reviews

T Rama Rao's 1995 flick 'Ravan Raaj: A True Story' is a fantastic entertainer. The film was a huge success at the box office, and it deserved to be. A true story on the incidences of organ racket that happened in south India. A true story told in the most interesting and gripping manner. Two Big Thumbs Up!

Performances: Mithun Chakraborty is my favorite actor, his performance here also is excellent. Madhu looks great and did a lovely job. Aditya Panscholi is superb. Paresh Rawal is fantastic. His punch line in the film is truly hilarious and meaningful. Shakti Kapoor plays to the gallery. Harish and Sheeba are good. Johnny Lever is hilarious in that one sequence. Others are good.

'Ravan Raaj: A True Story' is a winner all the way. Amazing direction, amazing songs and commendable performances make this 1995 flick a complete treat. Go for it!
