Raja Rani – a Tamil Romance film released in 2013. John and Regina enter a married life unwillingly for the sake of their family to only make their everyday life a hell. It is later revealed that the reason for their unwillingness and detachment is that they are not able to come out of their past love failure and loss from it. Do they realize that there is life after breakup which could be better is the rest of the plot.
Atlee coming from Shankar’s school has done a very neat job for a debut director. He has tried to recreate the magic Mouna Raagam after 27 years and has been fairly successful in his attempt. Though the story is a old school romantic drama template the screenplay makes it look still fresh. Atlee should be given credit for the using innovative sequences to move the story that has been told many a times. The movie is thoroughly enjoyable.. it will make you laugh and cry as the characters go through the roller coaster of situations in their life. GV Prakash has done a neat job with the background score. Couple of shortfalls – One, at times they have taken creative liberty to move the story to a desired sequence and other the message of good life existing beyond break ups have been repeated by almost every character which could have been avoided. If you are willing to ignore such minor glitches you will enjoy Raja Rani.
Must Watch – for all those who love Romantic drama!

“Recreate the magic of mouna ragam and has been fairly successful”????? Plz not even close:-). Raja Rani was a ok movie…average:-)
Many of the viewers had the same compliant… probably the movie did not connect with them… So your comment would be valid… 🙂 for me the subject line of life after love failure was one of similarity and the audience in the cinema hall were laughing and sniffing through the movie. That’s why I wrote the comment. I always enjoy movies which make the audience lively.
