Raja Rani Movie Review


Raja Rani revolves around two youngsters James (Arya) and Nayantara (Regina), who uninterestingly get married due to their fathers alliance. The duo fight with ego clashes and the relationship reaches a breakup point. When Regina falls sick, James admits her in hospital and they get to know about their past love stories which end up on tragedy. Will John and Regina sort out their problems? Will form the crux of Raja Rani…


Arya has delivered neat performance. As James, Arya has shown variance in presentation besides his good looks. Especially emotional scenes and second half are well handled.

Nayantara as Regina is apt for the role. She does an impressive job as a sensitive, soft-hearted girl with loads of attitude. Nayan looks adorable in the movie.

Jai as an innocent customer care executive seems convincing in his role, though not long-lasting. Nazriya has given a superior performance as Keerthana.

Sathyaraj is apt as father of Nayantara so as her college friend played by Misha Ghoshal. Sathyan is at his best, Santhanam excelled in his role.

Technical Analysis:

Debutant director Atlee proved his mettle and screenplay is gripping, though predictable at times. Cinematography is on top notch. GV Prakash Kumae music is anther asset while the background score is elevating complementing the narration. Editing is crisp. Production values are good.


Raja Rani is a simple, feel good romantic entertainer by director Atlee. Arya holds the film with his substantial performance and together with Santhanam he brought theater down with laughs. Nayanthara excelled in her role, while Jai and Nazriya Nazim performed equally better.

Despite few boring moments in the initial half and predictable climax, Raja Rani has its fun moments and delivers a good message through narrative. The love story is refreshing and offers pleasant moments with heart-warming emotional scenes.

Final Verdict:

Raja Rani- A fun-filled romantic entertainer!!!
