My version of the movie Raanjhanaa

Posted by DeeDee at 7:30 AM
Raanjha: A man who sacrificed the world for his love Heer

People who have seen Raanjhanaa, God Bless..
People who haven't seen Raanjhanaa Lucky you, You are already blessed!!

This movie Raanjhanaa has Sonam Kappor, Dhanush, Abhay Deol, Dhanush's bestie, and a girl, Bindya who is crazy about Dhanush.

This guy Kundan (Dhanush) is a crazy ass "lover" of  Zoya (Sonam Kapoor) from the time he is like 10.
He proposes her a million times when they are in school. Threatens a "yes" from her by slitting his wrist in the rickshaw in school-going age... Stalker personality personified

She is sent away from her village to Delhi and comes back after 8 years. She has gotten over a silly childhood joke of a bf and doesnt remember a thing about him until he starts mentally torturing her by popping up anywhere and everywhere. Zoya rejects him on the pretext of religion him being a Hindu and her being a Muslim.

Height of nut-caseness is when he uses, this girl who is crazy about him, Bindya to click obsene pictures with a prospective groom who comes to see Zoya for breaking the alliance, thinking that this might get Zoya to him.

When Zoya tells him that she is in love with another guy (Abhay Deol-Jaljeet/Akram) who is into politic thingies in her Delhi college. This crazy-ass dude, tried to drown her in the Ganga with his "Bajaj Chetak".

Out of persistence of his lady love, he tries to reunite the couple by sweet talking her professor father into Zoya marrying her boyfriend.
And out of revenge for  rejecting him, the "heart-broken" Kundan asks Bindya to marry him on the same day as Zoya's wedding and in real gives a rats ass about his would-be bride's feelings.
Bindya is ecstatic because she has been in love with Kundan ever since eternity.

On their wedding day, he sees that in a newspaper Zoya had lied to him and her family that her boyfriend is a Muslim, when the truth was the guy is a Hindu.
Impulsively, he drives to her house and sabotages her wedding. Knowing this villagers beat Zoya's boyfriend to death..
Kundan doesnt reach his own wedding venue, Infact he forgets about his wedding and ruins Bindya's life.

Pleading guilty, Kundan takes Zoya to her boyfriend's house in Punjab, where its revealed that her boyfriend died due to the beating.
Heartbroken Zoya, flees to Delhi to fulfill her boyfriend's political dreams..
Obssessive Kundan, lands to Delhi again to steal the limelight with his street-smart dialogs.

A rival political party is kinda shaken up with the student party and the woman CM comes to "negotiate" with Zoya, her being the party leader.
She asks Zoya to get Kundan shot in a big rally.

One of the police guys, who is in good rapport with Kundan, informs him about the blast that is to happen in the rally. Still, the "lover" Kundan goes to the rally on the insistence of his "lady love" and gets shot an ddies

Life ruined,
Zoya
Jaljeet/Akram
Bindya
Kunda's priest father
Prospective Groom guy

In this whole bird brain plot, what exactly makes him Raanjhanaa (Raanjha).

This movie promotes stalking, obsessive lover traits, wrist cutting and threatening, using friends for your advantage, idiotic impulsiveness
and still this movie has got like 3 and a half stars.

Raanjhanaa Summary: First half supposedly smitten and romantic. Second Half politics

Hahaha thank god I watched the movie an hour before you posted this :p
Well I have a different take. I absolutely loved the movie :)
the movie kind of potrayed the reality of obsessive love.. Kundan hardly knows the kind of girl zoya is ( she hardly knew him in school and still runs to him when in need) and yet lets go of everything in her love. As an audience you want to shake him up and slap him but thats a very common reality and as the movie shows -leads to a bad end.
Heer ranjhan never epitomised mature love , it was madness and obsession but with both parties involved ;)
Sonam kapoor tries to get rid of him and yet kept giggling at his antiques -proof that some girls never learn ! And when he leaves her she comes to beg for help. She took advantage of his madness very well !
I did feel for bindiya though, I was kind of hoping kundan' s friend and she would end up together ;)
Loved the dialogues, so original and funny .. And I liked the acting which is a rare thing I say

Haven't watched the movie yet, but from I have gotten both kind of views from my friends who watched. Some love the movie for its dialogues, some hate it for the drama. Guess I will make a conclusion if and when I watch it :)

If you are a die hard romantic you should watch

I am thanking my stars for not watching this crappy film. Wrist cutting...that out me off. I've been subjected to the whole stalking-the-girl-to-death-and-eventually-she-will-give-in shit in my life which the guys assumed worked because they had seen so in the films. Its kinda shameful that they still promote stifling as a healthy way of expressing love in an age where people are shouting hoarse for gender equality and respect.

seems like a movie I should avoid. I hate senseless romance like that.. :)

Anya and Sunitha...Good choice ladies...

Hahaha... I saw it once and want to go again. I loved the whole presentation of the movie and i must say that after Kahaani, this is a must watch.... It has a story bcz and not some crazy stupid love sick plot!

About the story - one mistake leads to another and you cant always control where you are destined to be taken. Things happen and one must just go on.

Loved the musicc score by the legendary rehman.

When I saw the trailer it felt very similar to the tamil movie "3" where Dhanush is in love with the heroine since School days. He is shown as a teen and then as a grown man and then as a dead man. I never saw that movie and never wish to. Same goes for Raanjhnaaa aka Ambikapathi in Tamil.

What you have you have observed is absolutely true and only makes me wonder if his brother Selvaraghavan was involved in the making in any manner. He has a thing for obsessive, stalker type love stories. You can't call them LOVE stories, rather, stalker tales.

Smita honey, maybe oubreally are a die-hard romantic..keep it up lovey..and dont get hurt...

Ganga perfect observation sweety

im glad they didnt put a happy ending - it would have encouraged more stalking/dramatics by guys - no one to root for in this movie but Bindya
