Great Hindi Movies, Coming Up in 2010 : Raavan
Inspired from the copious Indian mythological epic, Ramayana, filmmaker Mani Ratnam brings his own vision and sensibilities to this wildly-anticipated interpretation.
Considering the secrecy surrounding this project, simultaneously shot in Tamil, Raavan with its curious title and casting is expected to hit the marquee during the first quarter of 2010. Known to extract career-best performances from his actors, Raavan had a lot going for it.
Here's the rumoured lowdown: Abhishek Bachchan plays the title role avenging his sister's derision by Vikram, modelled after Lord Rama by abducting the latter's wife, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan as Sita. Supposedly, there's a masterful twist to it all, which we shall wait for Ratnam to reveal at his own accord. Until then, it's back to twiddling thumbs in excitement and wait.
