Friday box-office: Raavan in theatres this week
Whether you always look forward to Mani Ratnam’s experiments in cinema, or are merely intrigued by the various Raavan expressions of Abhishek Bachchan as seen on hoardings and in TV promos, the  movie opens in theatres today. Initial reviews on the Internet contradict each other:
 
“That this film adapts from one of India’s favourite mythologies, The Ramayan, we know. That it would be so subtly subversive in challenging that mythology, even adding a surprise development, was the unexpected dessert after the hearty meal.”
 
-  Sonia Chopra, Sify.com
 
“Mani Ratnam’s modern adaptation of Hindu mythological epic Ramayana with a twist, is a film made with good intention, beautiful music and mind blowing cinematography but unfortunately lacking everything else!”
 
-  Renuka Vyavahare, Indiatimes.com

The other movie you can catch is the Ashton Kutcher-starrer Spread, whose IMDB description is “a sex comedy centered on a serial womanizer and his jilted lover”. Some people liked it, most people didn’t on Rotten Tomatoes.
