Raanjhanaa - Movie Reviews

‘Raanjhanaa’ is like a Shakespearean tragedy, rendering an unusual love story that is so rare to find these days.
Yahoo India
Benares: where amid the small gallies, and around the local chaat-wala, a very young romance is about to blossom.
SIFY
Raanjhanaa, scripted by Tanu Weds Manu writer Himanshu Sharma, is a love story with a huge difference that benefits no end from a clutch of exceptional performances.
RAANJHANAA encompasses romance and myriad emotions most wonderfully besides bravura performances...

Love is one such feeling which has been experienced by almost every human being. Similarly, one sided love too, has been felt by everyone at some or other given time. It could've been in form of you loving someone or someone loving you. Most of them might

All of the above add to the package, of course, but they are overshadowed by the South Indian actor, Dhanush – because of him, you can even overlook the flaws and lack of logic in the screenplay.

Set in Banaras movie defines or rather redefines love in today's world by laying down different rules of love, and peeping deep down the emotional side of love lorn characters.

Bollywood and its love stories.. here is a new definition of love.. 'Raanjhanaa' this Eros International feature which launches the south sensation Dhanush in Bollywood is a brilliantly written, marvelously performed and soulfully sung desi capricious love guide beautifully realized by director Aanand Rai..

Raanjhanaa is worth a watch, but I personally enjoy the occasional dose of melodrama (both on and off screen). If you’re entirely averse to that sort of thing, you may want to give this one a miss. If not, prepare to forgive its little loopholes in logic
First Post
An age old Tamil concept of a boy falling in love with a girl in childhood, where then he keeps on stalking her till she consents (which costs him a wrist slip and 16 slaps). Driven by pure infatuation our charming heroine Zoya ( Sonam Kapoor) does spark

On the whole, Raanjhanaa is an interesting, entertaining and a fairly different love story and will do very well at the ticket windows. It is like heady wine and its effect will only grow. Dhanush will be loved in the film. Although the total investment i

Ranjhanaa is not perfect but it is heart-touching and very entertaining. And it is that unique thing – a love story that men will like more than women. Must watch!

The biggest problem with Raanjhanaa isn't the fact that Sonam Kapoor's evolution as an actress means she now has a sum total of three expressions.

“Raanjhnaa” tries to portray the strengths of Dhanush as an actor and in the bargain the movie loses its plot completely in the second half.

With some imagination, the effect would have been nostalgic, too.

A heart touching and sensitive tale, strongly recommended

Unfortunately, Raanjhanaa never fully gets back on track. But despite these flaws, I’m recommending that you see it. Especially for Dhanush who proves that eventually looks don’t matter. Neither does size. All that towers is talent.
Hindustan Times 
First love is always special in everyone’s life, so is the story of Raanjhanaa. It is the tale of a Hindu boy Kundan (Dhanush) and his journey from a 13-year-old lover to a committed young man who stays by his childhood love till his last breathe. Varanasi holds a special place in Kundan’s heart and the reason is not only his childhood days but also the city that gave him Zoya (Sonam Kapoor)
