Acting- Dhanush (Kundan) pulls it off very well in terms of acting skills with his Bollywood debut but Sonam Kapoor (Zoya) fails to make a mark once again and just manages to deliver her usual smile at anything that comes your way coupled with her exquisite portfolio shots in the movie establishing her fashion affliction. About Abhay Deol, his character looks much like the celluloid adaptation of AAP’s leader Arvind Kejriwal at the national level. Deol looks great as ever with nothing extraordinary to add to the plot.

Story: About the story, it looks like nothing more than an adaptation of a 80s Bollywood romance that seems to all have been fitted into the modern context. The same poor-guy-meets-rich-girl, slitting wrists in love, fathers hitting their daughters for confessing love and Hindu-Muslim tension etc.

Music: AR Rahman’s music score in the movie is outstanding but much of it gets exhausted in the first half of the movie itself leaving nothing for the audience to bear the over-dragging film plot.

Verdict: Raanjhana is no doubt a onetime watch for none else than Dhanush’s portrayal of both small town teenager and a twenty something with relative ease and looks convincing. Also the part of childhood friend played by Swara Bhaskar has delivered an impressive performance. Don’t expect the Raanjhanaa’s plot to be anywhere close to that of Yuva or Rang De Basanti.
