Raja Rani is one of the latest movies to hit the screens in Tamil cinema for this weekend. With good promotions and songs catching up with the audiences easily, Raja Rani had high expectations before its release. Directed by the debutant director Atlee, Raja Rani is a multi starrer starring actors Arya, Jai, Nayanthara and Nazriya Nazim. Actors Santhanam and Sathyaraj play important roles in the movie. Raja Rani has the theme that there is a life even after love failure.
John (Arya) and Regina (Nayanthara) get married with each other but none of them have interest in their marriage. Circumstances force them to know about each others’ past life. Both of them have their own love failure story. Regina who loves Surya (Jai) is unable to marry him and John loses his beloved Keerthana (Nazriya Nazim) in an unfortunate accident. Their sympathy and empathy for each other after knowing their past helps them to understand each other. However, there are still twists in the story and whether they get with each other forms the rest of the story.
Raja Rani has a good theme of showing that there is still life left to be lived even after love failure. The movie has its share of negatives, but works well in most of the parts. Debutant director Atlee has sketched all the characters of the movie very well and all the important characters have a meaty role to play rather than just popping up on screen. This has worked to the movie’s advantage.
The narration might appear a bit lengthy but the crisp dialogues and interesting characterization comes to the rescue. Although the movie is a bit emotional and moves the audiences, there still could have been more emotions added to the past life love flashbacks.
Camera work of George C Williams is a big plus of Raja Rani, which shows each frame in an attractive and colorful manner. G V Prakash Kumar’s music also works to the advantage.
Debutant director Atlee succeeds in his maiden attempt!
