Anand L. Rai’s Raanjhanaa is a film with ambition and beauty. In riotous Varanasi, the dark-skinned, wiry son of a Hindu priest (with Tamil lineage) is mind-warpingly in love with the hoity-toity, supercilious daughter of a wealthy Muslim couple. In the potently Communist campus of Jawaharlal Nehru University, Delhi, love and ignorance test political idealism. The bigger ideas of the story based on a Tamil folk tale and ably adapted to contemporary times and themes by Himanshu Sharma are manhood, remorse, courage and the strange workings of destiny.
