PREVIEW: RANN

RANN is Ram Gopal Varma’s forthcoming drama-thriller featuring Amitabh Bachchan, Riteish Deshmukh and Paresh Rawal. The controversial film gives a hard-hitting look at the politics in the Indian electronic media!

It tells the story of Vijay Harshvardhan Malik (Bachchan) who has over years been the embodiment of trust, honesty, ethics and responsibility to the entire nation. India’s first private news channel, founded by Vijay, is the temple of ‘true’ journalism. He believes that while everyone is entitled to their opinion, they are not entitled to their own facts!Pitted against him in the battle for corporate supremacy is Amrish Kakkar (Mohnish Bahl), a former employee at Vijay’s channel. Amrish has, in a way, ‘revolutionized’ the business of delivering news. For Amrish, the media is a vehicle that he rides upon and maneuvers to deliver baseless entertainment. His channel is ruling in terms of viewership numbers. Jay Malik (Sudeep), Vijay’s son and CEO, is desperately seeking a way to resuscitate his channel and get it back to the top slot. Jay is a go-getter who looks at his father’s channel as an enterprise that must make profits. He cannot digest his rival’s channel racing ahead and is set to hatch a major plan that would catapult his channel to the top.  

Mohan Pandey (Paresh Rawal), a politician yearning to take the prime post of the country takes advantage of Jay’s ambition. But the fulcrum of his plan rests on using Vijay’s robust credibility! Purab (Riteish Deshmukh) has always idolized Vijay as the epitome of truth and turns to a career in investigative journalism at Vijay’s channel. The tension soars when he uncovers the truth behind the story that had taken Vijay’s channel to the pinnacle.  In this fast paced drama from Ram Gopal Varma, the master director of Satya, Company, Sarkar and Sarkar Raj, one sees a canvas of conflicting yet fascinatingly powerful shades of human character. This heady cocktail of suspense, high intensity and no-frill emotions, makes Rann an edge-of-the-seat drama-thriller that’s not to be missed!

    PAA, RANN, 3 PATTI, JOHNNY MASTANA…bring on 2010!

  4. Hope this works like Paa.

    • First promo of Rann was released last year (March/April) , Rann managed to create hype because of its excellent first look and controversial national anthem, but now when movie is about to release, Hype is not at same level. Even Teen Patti is fetching better reactions. problem is that all subsequent promos have nothing new or as exciting as was first look. However i don’t have any doubt about product, movie should be excellent. But at the moment hype is missing and promos are not upto level. However there is still about 25 days left, promotional activities may boost up in coming days.

  5. BTW, so glad u are back Yakuza

  6. sounds familiar. NDTV – CNN/IBN – PRANNOY ROY – RAJDEEP SARDESAI.

    by the way any idea of actual (TRUE) collections of PAA. all kinds of figures btw. 22 – 42 cr. thrown around. mystery why the producers have not bothered to clarify. Big B should clear the picture in his blog. cheers !
