Mani Ratnam, one of the best directors of this age, put out a directors note for his forthcoming film Raavan in its official website. The note starts like this.. 'Ten heads, ten minds, a hundred voices, one man - Raavan!'
This publicity campaign on the Internet has created a big buzz about the film. The questions that Mani Ratnam poses, in a way gives out the one-line story about his Raavan, the modern epic!
These are all the questions of Mani sir...
Did such a man ever exist…?
Was he just a myth…or does he live even today…?
What is the line that divides Good from Evil…?
Does our understanding change when we look from the opponent's perspective…?
The bond between the hunter and the hunted-between the captor and the captive seems to be a bond of do or die….
The tension between opposites often seems so electric, that it isolates them from the rest of the world , leaving just the two-all alone…
Are ten heads better than one….?
Is there a Ram inside Raavan?
And a Raavan inside each of us?
