  1. so according to nauman, this is another drona.

  2. Thaanks Nauman, As you have tore apart the movie, I am still guessing how Mani Ratnam went so wrong ? His earlier work Dil se and Yuva may not have clicked at boxoffice, but found many takers. How you rate these two movies compared to Raavan ?

  3. Yakuza Didnt see Yuva, Dilse watched in 1997. I loved SRK’s acting especially when he use to said in his introduction All India Radio and show his ID card.
    Manisha was superb. and I always love cinematography. Dilse had also good natural locations like Raavan. I dont think so Dilse should be less than 3 stars. Cant forget Chaya Chaya craze. after college we all friends use to be block the road and dance on that song.

    • In case if you rate Dil Se better, then something is really wrong this time with Raavan. Nauman, my Last hope is that Your mood was not good before watching movie, or you must have quarreled with your GF in between movie …. :).

      • Yeah dat can happen. I was in a good mood wen i went to watch KITES so i loved it.

        The mental state of a person does affect their opinion on da movie.

  4. Yakuza I am extremely happy today that I am flying to Pak tomorrow 5 pm. My lagauge has been packed. I got my pay (Thursday is pay day here). Thats why I liked. mountain, lack, raining and wet jungle because I am in romantic mood now a days.
    Just waiting 2nd July When I will be in hall and watching IHLS with my lovely wife.

  5. As a normal person I am Akki fan. But as reviewer I am 100 % honest. My friend who was with me and other 3,4 people who were sitting in the hall none of any one liked. Believe me if I wasn’t reviewer and I didnt have to write review I could left in half way.

  6. @yakuza,i think nauman was in gud mood that’s why he gave 1.5 stars to raavan otherwise his review suggests rating in -ve.lolz

  7. Yakuza did you like Blue, Drona and Dilli 6? what is ur rating for these movies?
    add Tashan, Kites and MAMK as well plz.
    Then I will tell you will you like it or not.

  8. For me
    Blue 3 (checked my review in indicine)
    Drona 0/5 (left in the half way)
    Delhi 6 1.5/5
    Tashan 2/5
    Kites 1.5/5
    MAMK 2/5

    Now you can guess that what do you think abt Raavan.

    • for me

      Blue 2.5/5
      Drona advised not to see it
      Delhi 6 not seen
      Tashan turned it off after 10 mins
      Kites 3.5/5
      MAMK 2/5

      i wonder wat RAVAAN will be.

  9. But Yakuza its ok. Abhishek is not Akshay who has to maintain his 2007 record.
    Khele Hum Jee Jaan se, Game and Dum maro Dum looks good. and Adi Chopra announced Dhoom 3 as well along with same cast of D-2.

  10. yakuza sir how do you think the movie would fare at the box office?

  11. Yakuza what is your rating for Dilse and Guru?

  12. yakuza audience ne kaise response diya?

  13. sorry that was to nauman

  14. will not reveal story here, Just put lights on plus and minus points :

    Plus :

    1. Performances, Beera rocked MAN …….. And how ? Abhishek has done excellent job and very different from his previous work … Aish was also good, Vikram was fine but didn’t get much scope.
    2. Climax .. Will not reveal
    3. Music , Awsome on screen expereince to visualize the fantastic songs
    4. Cinematography. Have we seen such a fine locals and scenes before ? i haven’t. This is my first experience. Awesome
    5. Direction. Amazing , Mani thinks total out of box and did great Job.

    Minus :

    1. A bit slow pace in first 20 minutes of second half.

    Overall movie will rock and work big time at boxoffice. Movie is sholay of out time. Gabbar has gone, Beera is coming ……….

    My rating : 4/5

  15. rofl gabbar what is this crap bigfun

  16. film is a total crap work the overacting of abhishek irritates you yes big fun it is similar to sholay remake ram gopal verma ki AAG i dont think that it will get fantastic results at box office why mani made this film .

    and that fat man govinda in as tarzan why you torture a simple man with such films dont waste that much maoney to make this crap and all

  17. yakuza sir i guess i ll have to wait as i am gettin very diverse reviews from bigfun and nauman

    • When reactions are extreme diverse, interest level increases to another level. I am more charged now … 🙂

  18. beera and dilli songs are totally ill timed songs with no scope the movie will blast the cinema halls with eggs and tomatoes and not with money

  19. Big Fun, thats cool you liked it. Alteast now some Bachan fans will happy.
    But which 20 minute you mentioned I only liked that 20 minutes of Abhishek’s sister’s scenes. She was also damn good. Especially her voice is to sexy.
    Starting was also nice when Abhishek kidnapped Ash.

  20. @Nauman, you didn’t like the movie because u are bachchans hater?

  21. lolz Rony, I love Abhishek. And I never give the rating according to my personal wish. Either it is Akki or Himesh Reshamiya. Who will work good he will get praise. I am Akshay fan but I didnt like Tashan , 8×10 , CC2C and Deewane Howe Pagal. I am not Himesh Fan but I liked Aap Ka Sarur.
    I loved Abhisehk in Dostana, Dhoom series and in Sarkar series.
    I dont know why guys thinks that reviewers are biased about there fav actors.

  22. I rather wait to watch movie and decide if it is good or not.Especially Mani Ratnam movies are bit different..

  23. Nauman, are you a professional reviewer?How long you are wrting reviews?

    • I am not a professional reviewer but I am writing reviews since one year officially on a site bollyplus.com and I hv written some in local news papers when I was in Pakistan.

      • hope u dont rate bollywood films by lollywood standards lol..

      • Well i guess then you are no diffrent than hundreds and thousands of us who post their opinion on diffrent websites and blogs..with no professional or techical experise

  24. Nauman mate,i thought you have a better sence about cinema…u need to work more on ur cinematic reviewer job…”poor cinematic knowledge”..you have failed please stop doing this as U R NOT FIT for this..truth hurts!

    • Thx mate. Any other advice for me ?
      When I gave 3 stars to Veer. Than all Sallu fans had same reaction. Even they didnt like my 3 star review and next day when Taran and others gave 1.5 and 2 then they thought I was right.
      BTW how is perth going? Sydney is too cold now a days and today is showering as well.

      • haha…u gave Veer 3 stars and in fact it was not even worth 1 star..this shows ur knowledge bout cinema any way keep on trying writing ur 2 cents as “U NEVER FAIL UNTILL U STOP TRYING”.
        Perth is cool today mate!

  25. I guess Nauman, you went assuming to see Akshay Kumar Movie or SRK movie and found Abhishek instead.When you mentioned that Masniratnam did not make it with interest, that shows how unprofessional your approach to reviewing is.I guess you went in with an intention that this movie is going to fail.But do not write a review which is full of crap in grammer and analysis.

    • When you gonna watch it ? Finger cross. And tell me where is grammar mistake in this review which is up on my site?

  26. Thanks for the early review Nauman. I had booked my tickets yesterday so will have to watch this one now. But thanks to your review, I will keep my expectations low. Keep up the good work!

  27. i dont trust that bifun, that guy is a abhishek licker on indiafm

  28. bhai logo raavan ke alawa aur bhi gum hain duniya mein………………….kya sab ke sab raavan ke peeche lage ho yaar.sari publicity tum log hi karoge kya?

  29. Hahahahahahaha @yakuza @changez nd other bachan fans.just saw aaj tuk starnews fucking ravan…wait for friday this movie ll be a epic disaster.reliance ll lost heavnly

  30. If Abhishek looks so irritating & annoying in the poster,what will it be like watching him for more than 2 hours?

    And why does a villain “Raavan” has to look like a toilet cleaner? As if someone flushed his face in the WC


      • I don’t degrade myself to the level of your likes

        You seem to be someone from a lower caste Bhangi group & look like the Raavan himself 😛

        Go watch the disaster flop movie yourself

  31. Believe me Abhi will annoying to every one.
    in whole movie he says
    chhuck chhuck chhuck chhuck

  32. Nauman..check your above post..that is called grammar mistake..please correct your English and post reviews…

  33. India’s leading print house TOI has given good(3. 1/2) rating for the movie RAAVAN and that is more rated and respected than some amateurs who think they are Hitchcock,Kurosawa or a Charli chaplin in the blogs here…my 2 cents!

    • Changez bhai aap to apne Aussie bhai ho. You really think abt me like this?
      It’s ok let other reviews come n then we will talk.

  34. chengez bollywood needs u dear.come on show the whole world that akki n sallu n others r nowhere in front of u..aaja mere bhai hero banja…kam se kam bollywood ko 1 to aisa actor milega jise acting aati hai..yahan baithe bathe netagiri karne se kuchh nahi hoga….lolz
