From Lallan to Beera.... making of an Actor.
16 June 2010 | by neerajpatodiSee all my reviews

Remember Amrish Puri of 80-90s, as soon as he enters in the scene you start having a nasty feeling of fear, hate and disgust. His cruelty goes within your skin and you abhor him like anything. That's the same terror and nasty sensation Abhishek was able to produce in Raavan. It was Yuva where I saw Abhishek's true potential first time and its Raavan where he shows where he belongs to. Even though Lallan was having kind of negative shades, and Raavan is Villain like hell, but hats off to Maniratnam to bring such a class act out of Abhishek. In entire movie you see and admire him just as an Abhishek, no more papa's boy and no more papa's copy. It was worth every penny to see him grown up as full blown actor. I was so engross with Abhishek's performance that Vikram and Ashwarya, totally justifying there presence were not able to get my attention.

Usually when you came out of watching Maniratnam's movie, you found your heart felt tense, your mind ponder heavily, your feet takes smaller steps and your face looks grimmer. While watching Raavan these emotion increases many fold. A totally different experience than how you feel watching Rajkumar Hirani's movie.

I think this movie belongs to different genre for different set of audience. It may not be a blockbuster, but this will not change anything about quality of movie. It is pleasant to see that Indian cinema is now a day adventures enough to produce offbeat roles and movies with quality acting and direction.

If wanting to relax is not the only criteria you watch movies for then I strongly recommend you this gem. 7.5/10.
