Ravan has released, finally. Director Mani Rathnam has finally put his creative work to the public and the response is mixed. Ravan, the Hindi version has just about falled short of bombing at the box office. While critical acclaim for a Mani Rathnam movie is no more headlines, the producers aren’t too happy about the movie’s commercial gains. The blame game has just started in Hindi with Amitabh tweeting in support of his son. The stars aren’t rubbing Mani Rathnam on the wrong side, but it wouldn’t be long before that starts.
Ravanan, the Tamil Version, has done good business. Vikram is a highly sale-able star and his extensive network of fan clubs have ensured a good opening for the movie. It’s still too early to pass a verdict on this issue.  But the initial signs are mixed.
