Not among Mani's best

Raavanan is good in parts, an off-kilter cinematic experience. It is technically the finest movie made in recent times, superb camerawork. The major plus is the actors, but the story and screenplay by Mani Ratnam and Suhasini are a big let down. The film lacks the Mani Ratnam touch in the story and ...(more)

Raavanan is all style, little substance

Raavanan is a beautiful travel package that shows you the best of Mother Nature, and considerably less of human nature. The screenplay, instead of cruising along, stutters and stammers.

A masterstroke yet again

A solid story, a fairly taut screenplay, well-rounded characters and able direction set Raavanan apart. Plaudits to Ratnam for scouting for, and zeroing in on some of the country's awesome virgin locations! Living up to the hype and hoopla of a product isn't easy. Raavanan has done it.

Cheers Madras Talkies and Mani Ratnam

With a huge star cast chipping in with their best, mesmerizing shots, crisp editing and riveting music, 'Raavanan' ends up satisfying the appetite of the masses. All credits to Mani for rendering a movie that is engrossing and entertaining from the very word go. Running for little more than two hour...(more)
