Bollywood Romantic drama "Raanjhanaa" has Dhanush and Sonam Kapoor in prominent roles. This is the Bollywood debut for south Indian superstar Dhanush.
Dhanush plays the son a pundit named Kundan who has fallen in love with Zoya (Sonam Kapoor), a Muslim girl, at first sight. That they are kids makes us dismiss it as a meaningless crush. But a few years later, Kundan remains in love with Zoya. Whilst she`s in college, he follows her around and gets slapped at the end. She relents because of his "consistency". The film shifts towns whilst Zoya gets into JNU (Jawaharlal Nehru college), and through her, we`re introduced to the idealistic and political way of life of the location. She falls for the college leader Akram (Abhay Deol). The movie takes a turn whilst Zoya returns to her hometown after 8 long years. This movie showcases a different way of love and sacrifice set against the backdrop of colorful Varanasi.
The movie has a cult fan following it music and punchy dialogues which is a hit with teenagers.
