Wow. You know what bothers me the most? Some people not wanting to watch Raavan because they rather see Vikram over Abhi. Me too...but watch it for Govinda, will you? My blogger friends enjoyed Raavan, simply for Govinda, no kidding.


You know, Nicki, I wasn't thrilled with Abhi in this, but at this moment, I have enormous sympathy for him, because it would be difficult enough being judged on your performance alone, but then when everyone has access to the other version as well, it's even worse being judged by comparison.

I honestly want to see both versions before I finally make up my mind. If I ever can, it may be the kind of film that will constantly be dragging me one way and another all the time.


I don't even know where to begin with my write up of Raavan. Brain is fried. BUT. I do think it's very cool that the film is provoking SUCH thought and discussion - I mean, not everyone loves it, but everyone has a definite opinion about it. Isn't that someone's definition of great art?


Well, and that's it, I think, exactly, and I'm really enjoying following all the various thought lines on this. I know @jun6lee is working on his own post about it, and I'll be fascinated to see what he comes up with, too.

Raavan is a hard film to write about with a fried brain, believe me, I wasn't firing on all cylinders this morning either, but knew I had to keep putting down my thoughts on it. And at this point, I think the people who don't have a definite opinion, who are seeing both ends of the spectrum with the film, are the ones who are challenging my thinking the most.
