Raavanan as expected did not meet viewers expectations because expectation from the master craftsman of Indian cinema is always at a big level. But this movie is 80% a cameraman's movie and 20% a directors movie. This is going to be the reason behind the failure of this movie. Maniratnam script coordination and presentation has never failed in his previous ventures, but in ravanan, it failed in its coordination,flow and lack of a strong story base but it highly succeeded in the presentation. All kudos to the camera team and music. Choreography as always is excellent. vikram, aishwarya rai and prithviraj performances are scintillating.
