Mani Ratnam fights back Big B

raavan

Amitabh Bachchan’s cribbing about the poor editing of Mani Ratnam’s movie Raavan, on his blog, made actor Vikram and Cinematographer Santosh Sivan jump to Ratnam’s rescue by saying, it’s a director’s prerogative to decide how the characters should be depicted. Mani Ratnam who was calm till now, couldn’t stay the same any longer has spoken his mind to a Tamil weekly.

“That is his (Amitabh’s) opinion. I am not bothered about it. And I am not here in the industry to get marks from Amitabh Bachchan. We have made a film after two years of hard work. Anyone can comment on it,” Ratnam is quoted as saying by the weekly.

Big B had written “Lot of merited film edited out, causing inconsistent performance and narrative,”.

The superstar had later clarified that he has immense respect for Ratnam.

    AMITJI, YOU SHOULD HAVE SPOKEN TO HIM PERSONALLY RATHER THAN DOING IT ON TWITTER. TOMORROW CAN WE EXPECT SWEET NOTHINGS AIMED AT YOUR WIFE(OUR BELOVED “MILI” JAYA) ON YOUR TWITTER. ITS HIGH TIME YOU SHOULD HAVE CHOSEN THE RIGHT WAY TO COMMUNICATE WITH THE PEOPLE AND THE GENERAL PUBLIC. IF YOU CHOSE TO CALL HIM UP, THESE ISSUES WOULD NOT HAVE OCCURRED.

    MIND YOU MANI IS A GREAT DIRECTOR.NOT ONLY THAT HE GAVE YOU THE GODFATHER TAG, YOUR SON A NAME, YOUR DAUGHTER IN LAW SOME ACTING SKILLS AND MUCH MORE PUBLICITY AND FAME.

    Silly Amitabh…His son’s career only picked up after his Mani Ratnam movies-Yuva & Guru.Why is he fool enough to annoy Mani Ratnam ?Does’nt he want Abhishek working with Mani again?

    I am not sure where AB is going with criticizing Mani Ratnam. The man has directed so many great movies. He is on the same level as some of the greats here in the US. Doesn’t he (AB) realize that statements like this work against the progress of his son’s “acting” career as directors will be less likely to work his son if they have to contend with the father when their movies release. I wonder what Abhi and Aish has to say about this. I remember reading about a lot of troubles they were facing while shooting this film. It seemed a lot harder film to shoot…not as if they swinging from the ceiling singing “Juma Juma”…

    I think Mani is right, he didn’t make the movie to impress Amitabh. On the other hand many times we hear about cut scenes in bollywood so talking about this is nothing new. I would like to see the scenes on the DVD special features. Maybe they would have helped the movie, I don’t know.
