Movie Review

Raavan (Hindi: रावण) is a 2010 Hindi film directed and co-written by Mani Ratnam. It stars Abhishek Bachchan, Aishwarya Rai and Vikram in the lead roles while Govinda, Ravi Kishan, Nikhil Dwivedi, Tejaswini Kolhapure and Priyamani  feature in key supporting roles. It was simultaneously released in Tamil  as Raavanan  with a slightly different cast, which would also be dubbed into Telugu[2]  and other regional languages. The film's score and soundtrack is composed by A. R. Rahman.[3][4]  The film was released on 18 June 2010.[5]  The film's premiere was held in London on 16 June 2010.[6]

==Plot== 'Raavan' earns Rs 20 crore worldwide on opening day. The film opens with shots showing Beera Munda (Abhishek Bachchan) jumping off a cliff into the water. His gang is busy distracting the police. Police vehicles are set ablaze and women seduce policemen into a trap whereby Beera's henchmen attack. The policemen are ruthlessly murdered. Raagini Sharma(Aishwarya Rai), whilst on a boating trip, is kidnapped by Beera. Dev Pratap Sharma (Vikram), her husband and a senior police officer, is informed of the incident.

A brief montage of sorts showcases the story of Beera. He is seen as a local hero, a sort of Robin Hood- who runs a parallel govt, with his brothers - Siddharth (Ravi Kishan) and Laxmana Pratap (Nikhil Dwivedi). Though considered a terrorist by the local police, Beera is repected by the villagers. He kidnaps Raagini hoping to avenge the death of his sister Serena (Priyamani).

Dev and his team enter the forests with the aid of Sanjeevani Kumar(Govinda)- a local forest guard. Despite searching deep in the forests, Dev is unable to hunt down Beera.

Meanwhile, Raagini developes feelings for Beera after she hears the story of his sister's death. Dev had led an encounter against Beera during Serena's wedding. Dev's shot grazes Veera in the neck. Beera is led out of the fiasco by his gang. The police pressurize Serena into revealing Beera's hideout. When she refuses, she is subjected to physical and sexual assault. Veera returns home to find Serena distraught and traumatised. The next day, Serena commits suicide by drowning in a nearby well.

Unhappy with the way his brother is leading a war causing distress to his gang,Laxmana Pratap decides to offer a truce to Dev. Dev initially seems to agree, but when Laxmana Pratap comes out in the open, Dev shoots him to death- thus revealing that he considers the destruction Beera being more important than saving his wife.

Beera and Siddharth are enraged and attack Dev's camp and wipe it out completely. A final confrontation between Beera and Dev takes place on a rickety bridge - where Veera triumphs over Dev - when he decides not to let Dev die. He tells Dev he is letting him live because of his wife. Dev manages to extricate himself out and finds Raagini bound and tied up - with Beera leaving her.

However - Dev is not entirely happy and while returning to their hometown, Dev accuses Raagini of infidelity and informs her that it was Beera who told him so. Furious, Raagini leaves Dev to meet Beera through Siddharth. She manages to meet him and and asks him why he had accused her of doing so. Beera tells her he said that he had protected Raagini safely for all the fourteen days and not anything else. He quickly realizes that Dev lied, hoping Raagini would lead him to his hideout.

Dev appears with a police team and confront the duo. Raagini tries to save Beera, but he pushes her out of the line of fire. He is shot multiple times, whereby he falls off the cliff.
