Vikram or Abishek Bachchan- The Better Raavan

Even as the much-hyped Mani Ratnam‘s Raavanan/Raavan/Villain starring Vikram and Abishek in the lead roles opened to mixed reviews, Many sources find out that Vikram emerged as the real winner among the two but Amitabh Bachchan interprets his son Abhishek’s performance in a different way.

Amitabh Bachchan has expressed unhappiness over the films editing, which, according to him, ruined Abhishek’s performance.

“It’s sad, in the edit you only see the after-effect of that thinking process, hence inconsistent. In the edit, all the visual heads got cut and you see a confused Beera expression and wonder why?” Amitabh wrote on a microblogging site.

“Lot of the merited film edited out, causing inconsistent performance and narrative. Abhishek’s erratic behaviour was due to symbolic 10 heads visually appearing and each giving him different attitudes to adopt for a situation, he would then finally shake them off and decide”, Amitabh said.

But Mani Feels different “My movie is about a mighty man whose behaviour is due to different attitudes that strike his mind to adopt for a situation. It’s like 10 different persons sitting inside one man. Hence the title”, the ace filmmaker clarified.

Meanwhile, Bollywood veteran Mahesh Bhatt came to the support of Amitabh Bachchan, who expressed unhappiness over the editing of the film’s Hindi version ‘Raavan’ which has his son Abhishek Bachchan in the lead.

A dad is a dad is a dad. Who else would come out but a father to protect his son from fires of perceived failure?” the filmmaker said. In the meantime, amidst reports that the movie has bombed at the box office, distributor Reliance Big Pictures has claimed that the film has grossed Rs 53 crore worldwide with in three days of its release.

Fortunately key players of the film Vikram and cinematographer for both the versions Santosh Sivan have come to the defense of director Mani Ratnam.

While Santosh Sivan said the director’s prerogative cannot be questioned by anyone as he is the Master of the ship, Vikram said the audience was the ultimate judge but all is done for the well scoring of movie.

And when he appeared online for the second time during the day, Amitabh accused the media of misinterpreting his statement as an affront to the films director Mani Ratnam. There has and shall always be respect and dignity for him media playing with words. Mani is one of our finest directors… he should never stop making films.

Who do you think made/makes a better Raavanan:  Cheeyan Vikram or Abishek Bachchan?

  1. i think vikram suits perfect for d role beera/veera….than abishek.
    but prithvi suits perfect for d role dev than vikram…. karthik & prabu's role was much expected…but their role was not convincing….aish s really awesome & her tamil was really too gud…congrats aish

  2. Even if you see this still, Bachan & vikram, whom give a real feeling Expression and pose for this still. 100% vikram & 50 % Bachan, Vikram is a Best Actor.

  3. Actually we should not compare Rajinikanth and Dhanush…..

    There is no thrill in watching Abishek in this roll…
    Mani should have given him "Vyapuri" roll to him as if it suits and cliked in "Dostana"….

    Vikram is Genius !!!

  4. the first COMMENT SPEAKS MY MIND EXACTLY!!!!!!!!!!!!!TAMIL VERSION Z THE BEST COMPARED TO HINDI VERSION……VIKRAM-RAVANAN….DEV-PRITHVI

  5. Here u go ….

    1. Vikram well suited for role because his tanted skin and beast like body structure was the perfect fit .. So Vikram rocked the show

    2. Prithiviraj was NOT that well acted when again compared with vikram dev actor in hindi ..last seen vikram will come with great cunning look and properly suited aviator rayban glasses … That was amazing …Also in the first seen prithiviraj when hears his wife is kidnapped not reacted that well … so Again Vikram rocked

    3. Govinda was better than karthik

    4. Prabhu role was better

    5. One Amazing thing … Aish done stunning performance in both the role

    If u ask me .. Mani should just put Vikram in dual role .. Movie should have been a big hit . of coarse it is alreday a hit

    Anyway i Loved movie very much ..great story line .. I have watched all the three version .. three consecutive day

  6. this is a kollywood blog.. because of which everyone is supporting vikram.. who the hell has asked someone to comapre both?? both suit well in their respective acts. i dont think anyone can compare both. Abhishek indeed is a great actor which he has proved in all his movies starting from Yuva.

  7. VIKRAM…! He's a fantastic actor… and i am saying this since i watched most of his films in the past
    I watched abishek's as well, including paa, and i should say, his acting isn't the greatest……
    However, I DID Watch guru and i think he did a better job… it's all based on the role and the script.
    Vikram… is great. BEST actor.

  8. I really love abishek and i like vikram too. But for this movie my vote is for Vikram. he makes a super raavan! I felt that abishek dint look serious/ furious enuf in few scenes.

  9. NO DOUBT, IT VICKRAM..AS HE DID EXCELLENT IN HINDI (PRITIVRAJ ROLE)
    TELL Amitabh TO FUCK OFF…BLAMING THE EDITIING INSTEAD FACING THE A TAMIL HERO DID BETTER THAN HIS SON

  10. i truely agree with the person who sed, 'NO DOUBT, IT VICKRAM..AS HE DID EXCELLENT IN HINDI (PRITIVRAJ ROLE)
    TELL Amitabh TO FUCK OFF…BLAMING THE EDITIING INSTEAD FACING THE A TAMIL HERO DID BETTER THAN HIS SON'

    the hindi just cant take the tamils doing much better
