Ravan in May
Mani Ratnam’s much awaited film Ravan was scheduled to release in February, but now the date has been advanced to May. The reasons for this are not known. Ravan is a new take on the Ramayan where Sita questions Ram’s intention of doubting her integrity. A twist in the story is that Sita decides to stay with Ravan at the end.
Vikram is the lead in the Tamil version where as Abhishek Bachchan is the lead in the Hindi version. Priyamani and Aishwarya Rai play the female cast in both the versions. The film has music by A R Rehman.
Ravan has been extensively shot in the jungles of south India and the film would mark the entry of Priyamani into Bollywood. The expectations from the film are high!
