Raja Rani (2013)
All the hype and hoopla surrounding the movie has been put to litmus test on September 27th, as after tremendous marketing and lateral teaser trailers, the film directed by promising talent young debutant Atlee Kumar, who had previously worked with Shankar during the making of Enthiran, hits the screens today. With a whale of cast, young and energetic “Arya, Nayan, Jai and Nazriya” the movie also has the fun loving GV Prakash crooning the music. Raja Rani reiterates that ‘there is love after love failure’ and importantly ‘there is life after love failure’.
In every household there is a king and a queen. How that royal couple rule together and independently is up to the choices they make. The happiness and equilibrium of the family depends on the compromises they are ready to make. This is the story of director Atlee’s Raja Rani.
The story of Raja Rani revolves around John (Arya) and Regina (Nayanthara), who learn to live and love each other, after being forced to get married. Both have previously loved and lost and agree to get married only to keep their respective parents happy. While Regina’s true love was the innocent Surya (Jai), John is still in the sweet memories of Keerthana (Nazriya).
Preferring to hold on to their past life, both are often rude and hurtful to the other in an attempt to push them away. Regina tries to get herself transferred and wants to get out of the country, while John drinks himself senseless every night with his buddy Sarathy (Santhanam).
As the story progresses, John and Regina learn about each other’s past love life and since both understand the pain and heartbreak of losing someone, they start to sympathize with the other.
But can they ever fall in love again? What destiny has in stores for John and Regina; how they rediscover their love forms the rest of the story.
