The Myth of RAAVAN and Bachchans trajectory of anger (Hindi, 2010)

RAAVAN was a film I’ve been waiting for since the very first day it was announced. Being a HUGE fan of Rathnam’s earlier works with Abhishek whether it be YUVA or GURU.

The negative reviews from “popular Indian critics” as well as a cold boxoffice response stumped me, and somewhat put me off seeing it in cinema in the initial run, however I ended up catching it, not once, but twice last week. The film comes across as somewhat of a surprise and is quite easily both Rathnam and Abhishek’s most experimental film in a long time.

  1. Yuva was a flop

    • BECAUSE IT WAS MADE AHEAD OF ITS TIME …JUST LIKE RAAVAN,WHICH WILL BE HAILED AS A CLASSIC AFTER SOMETIME….LIKE MERA NAAM JOKER was a disaster but was written as a classic after many years!!

      • yeah RAVAAN will always be remembered as the biggest disaster in the history of Bwood. People will compare oder disasters to RAVAAN

        LMAO

      • Yuva was lifted from Amorres Perros…so even if it was ahead of time the credit goes 2 Inarritu only…

  2. Raavan flopped because of flop Abhishek

    Simply because Raavanan is a hit, same movie, same director, same actress, only different lead actor

    If it wasn’t for Mr Amitabh, no one would sign Abhishek

    • RAAVAN floped in NORTH (HINDI BELT) due to the approach of the people’s taste…thats why Raavanan is a big hit down south as the people their are more forward and educated not unlike North India……that is the main difference in both the Raavans but Manirathnam had already stated that he is doing an experiment and is a fresh idea (b4 the release of the film)unfortunately Abhi,Ravi,govinda was in the loosing side as they were in the Hindi version unlike Vikram,prithviraj,karthik,ASh WHO WERE IN THE TAMIL VERSION….TRUTH HURTS!!

  3. dont compare yuva with Raavan, yuva was a very gud movie , infact abhishek also did good work there

  4. Hey yakuza u have me ur id , please send me a test mail to lemme knw ur email id . i want to talk to u

    • ok, will send you mail soon.

      • Mr Yakuza, i hope you are fine and healed from the debacle of Ravaan, come with your estimation of the revenues of this flop and be faiplay, cause it will not be the last disaster of the Bachchans

        • Sam, raavan is not first bachchans debacle. I was very much here when Rann/Aladin was flopped. There are much more important in your life that can hurt you badly. Movies and stars and just part of your passion, not possession, at least for me. BTW is it this a news that Raavan flopped ?

  5. Raavanaan buisness is a little better than Raavan..but still its not hit…may be just average or below average in south..

    • r u working at reliance or ibos?please check madras talkies press release last sunday….and then chat!

  6. Raavanan No. 1 in Chennai for the third consecutive week!

    (Vikram pulls itto above average)

    (We were led ro believe that even Vikram’s Raavanan wa not doing well, and it held the no. 1 in week 2 due to 5-day holiday due to Tamil conference. But the stats say otherwise! Another misinformation campaign to save Raavan (Hindi) goes down the drain)

    CBO- July 2 to 4

    The status quo is being maintained. Raavanan is strong in the multiplexes, and is still at the number one slot, third week in a row.
