Which is the best love story i have seen in recent times. This question was waiting was waiting for the answer since many years. And i got the answer. Its Raanjhanaa. After so many years , after a long time i have seen a movie which has taken me for surprise and i was totally awestruck and in trance from the day i saw that movie. And before writing the review i am saying ” Just go and watch the movie”, this is a movie where you will celebrate watching a cinema.
The movie is about Love, Just love,There’s nothing like the intensity of young love, but the director cuts in many ways at once. Feelings shown in the movie are so pure and exhilarating which can never be repeated, but also they cant be controlled, either, by wisdom and by maturity that enrich and sustain a long term relationship.
Raanjhanaa, the subtle and perceptive new film by writer-director Anand L Rai, tests just such a relationship against the passage of time. What happens to love when two people who fell for each other as impetuous teenagers meet again years later and they have a little more maturity and when the other falls for someone else forgetting their teenage love and what one has for his or her love even when the other ignores. This is all the movie is about.Intensity can curdle up just as quickly into jealousy, possessiveness and depression; when a heartsick teenager uses a phrase like “I’ll die for her,” adults may roll their eyes, but it’s just barely a figure of speech
In movies, there are some things which only few directors are capable of doing. One is honoring the complexities of youth. It’s a quiet, difficult undertaking, requiring subtlety in a filmmaker and perception and patience from us. But a good director can make it look terribly easy. And yes, Anand L Rai has done it.Himashu Sharma’s screenplay and dialogues were a major asset to the movie. Few dialogues were very hilarious and emotional that where it was a felt that words were more powerful than visuals.
It’s rather plotless. But things happen in precisely the way that life happens. The screenplay is spare but attuned to the pros and cons of human nature. Coming to performances, watch Dhanush and Sonam was a treat. They were more than Dhanush and Sonam, they were Kundan and Zoya. If i hear a name kundan or Zoya anytime it may remind me of them. Thats how they acted in the movie. It was just like watching their love story live.
Well, after watching the movie and wanting to write about the movie , i took much time after writing all the above things i felt something was missing and i really didn’t know what. And i realized that while listening to songs. It was the Music and the score. AR Rahman was simply outstanding. He brings the movie a sense of pleasure, a fundamental feeling that is hard to define but listing to songs while watching the movie is what one needs to experience.
On the whole, the Banaras background and the colorful cinematography brought delightful pleasure of watching a movie and it was so much original that it never looked like a movie to me while watching. Well, i celebrated Raanjhanaa, don’t miss this celebration.
