MANI RATNAM’S CUT ON RAAVANAN
The count down for Mani Ratnam’s Raavanan has begun and a note from the director throws light on the character Raavana in a different perspective:
A HUNDRED VOICES
Did such a man ever exist…?
Was he just a myth…or a metaphor…?
Is Raavan the line that divides Good from Evil…?
Does our understanding change when we look from the opponent’s perspective…?
The bond between the Hunter and the Hunted - between the Captor and the Captive seems to be a bond of do or die….
The tension between opposites often seems so electric, that it isolates them from the rest of the world, leaving just the two – All alone…
Are Ten Heads better than one…?
Is there a Ram inside Raavan? And a Raavan inside each of us?!
Wait for a while to get all your answers!
