Definitely worthy of a watch.

Aanand elicits the conservative/old school middle class setting wonderfully well. The milieu and narrative wholly absorb you, making you believe that you're as much part of the goings-on.(more)

Between the head and the heart

Yet, there is no denying that Raanjhanaa is a brave film to explore the crevices of young minds that straddle many worlds � social, intellectual, political and personal � that it is easy to lose your mind in the complex politics of modern relationships. (more)

If Raanjhanaa is cliched to the core, director uses the cliches well

Raanjhanaa harks back to the way Bollywood used to make love stories once upon a time. With some imagination, the effect would have been nostalgic, too(more)
