Raja Rani, a story based on the lives of four individuals and how the ripples they create end up canceling each other. What begins as a Catholic style marriage soon shifts to an apartment with the couples bickering at each other with the utmost fury like the lions and the Gladiators. But deep inside, both present a flashback with love as a common link. Who succeeds, Love or The lovers or the couples? You know what to do to know the answer.
Atlee, the débutante deserves appreciation for several reasons, for choosing a script free from heroism and Newton defying action sequences, for choosing a strong cast (Who would have imagined the Lungi clad villain of Naan Kadavul in a Reid & Taylor with a funny bone), for using these casts to deliver the message in almost every scene without making a fuzz about it.
Arya, Nayanthara, Jai, Nazriya have successfully brought life to the characters.The supporting cast including Santhanam, Sathyaraj, 'Naan Kadavul' Rajender have also done justice to their roles. Arya has retained his lover boy image with Santhanam as his side kick. Jai has ensured that we don't miss Santhanam in the first half. Nazriya's potential glimmers and with that enchanting look, she is definitely here to stay. Nayanthara's fasting with Tamil cinema is finally over and one hopes that she continues to entertain in the coming years. Santhanam has proved his mettle once again. Sathyaraj bring tears and at the same time helps us wipe it off.
The complications of any relationship can be easily dealt with once we realize that is complicated. 'Misunderstanding' can cause greater mayhem than what Katrina did to US. A clean mind and a willing heart is all it takes to make any relationship work. Though Atlee sprinkled many advice throughout, one refuses to leave my hearing apparatus and I've translated it to my best, "No couple are born in this world as 'made for each other'. It's how you live that makes it meaningful"
Raja Rani--- Telltale Poetry
Must watch for all Newlyweds and those awaiting.
