From the land of South to the glamorous tinselville, Tamil starlet Dhanush has come quite a long way to make a niche for himself in the Hindi film industry with his latest debut movie Raanjhanaa. And to one's surprise, Dhanush proves it and he is sure to stay here. Directed by filmmaker Anand L Rai, Raanjhanaa features Sonam Kapoor opposite Dhanush, along with Abhay Deol and Swara Bhaskar who are playing supporting roles. Like the other romantic films, Raanjhanaa too follows the same funda of "Come Fall In Love". But, this one stands out and makes a unique impression like never before.

Story
Raanjhanaa is the story about a boy named Kundan (Dhanush), who falls in love with Zoya (Sonam Kapoor) and tries to woo her all the time. Zoya then moves to another city for her education, where she falls head over heels in love with another man Akram/Jaspreet (Abhay Deol), a senior at her university in Delhi. Being a true and loyal lover, Kundan continues to feel the same for his girl and waits for her to return. When Zoya returns to her hometown, she reveals her love story with Akram/Jaspreet to Kundan. Kundan in return is heart-broken. But, that's just not the end of the story. There's a lot more twists and turns in the flick.

Raanjhanaa - Love Story

Raanjhanaa is a simple love story, yet so intense, true, passionate and heart touching. Adding to this, the well-written dialogues and convincing characters play a great deal in favour of the flick.

Raanjhanaa

As a filmmaker, Anand L Rai has done quite an impressive job to portray a story love, with a pinch of difference.

Dhanush Shines

Unlike other south stars in Bollywood, Dhanush gets his Hindi right. He gets into the skin of the character of a sweet, simple, innocent boy and delivers an absolutely marvellous performance.

Sonam Kapoor

After a long time, Sonam Kapoor seems quite likeable. She does justice to her role this time, yet has a long way to go to excel in the field of acting. Abhay Deol, as usual, is quite good too.

Final Verdict

In one word, Raanjhanaa works, and yes, the movie has maximum possibilities to strike the right chords amongst the audience, only and only because of Dhanush and his heart-touching performance.
