Movie Preview: Raavan

By Hindustan Times

Mumbai, April 23 -- What it's about... Reported as a modern day Ramayana with political undertones, the film revolves around the kidnapping of a top cop's wife by a Naxal leader. Accompanied by a cop Laxman and a contemporary Hanuman, Ram goes in search of Raavan and his wife. The film was simultaneously shot in Hindi and Tamil.

USP: Vikram, who plays Ram in the Hindi version and Raavan in the Tamil one, says, "You may walk into the theatre thinking it is a take on the epi - you may even find parallels - but when you walk out, you'd have forgotten the connection," adding that, that's exactly what happened to him after he completed shooting.
