The theatrical trailer of Satyagraha
has been launched. The film stars are Amitabh Bachchan, Ajay Devgn, Kareena Kapoor Khan, Arjun Rampal, Amrita Rao and Manoj Bajpayee
If you go through the trailer, you will find a certain Manav Raghvendra (Ajay Devgn), a father (Amitabh Bachchan) who is grieving the loss of his son, a vicious and influential political figure (Manoj Bajyapee), an ambitious rabble-rouser (Arjun Rampal), for whom action is the knee-jerk mantra and a young woman who fights so hard with life that she has overlooked the emotion called ‘love’.
The film depicts how these characters discover each other and join hands to bring about a revolution to change the system. As the makers define it, ‘Satyagraha’ is also the story of an influential power-hungry despot.

Sooraj Pancholi’s ex-girlfriend defends him in Jiah Khan Suicide case
Sooraj Pancholi’s ex-gril girlfriend - Janvi Turakhia - has finally broken her silence on Jiah Khan suicide case. She has asserted that she never found her boyfriend of five years, abusive or violent.
Turakhia - who was in a long-term relationship with Sooraj - is shocked to hear the claims made against him of abetting Jiah Khan`s suicide
. She said that all the allegations are false and that he is just being framed.
“Whatever I am reading and hearing in the papers and TV, it is like they are talking about another person altogether. Of course my heart goes out to Jiah’s family. But I can’t believe a word of what they are saying about Sooraj! This Sooraj, who is supposed to have done these awful things to that poor girl, is not the Sooraj I know. My Sooraj is incapable of violence against anyone. He hates any kind of confrontation. Whenever we fought I was the one who was more aggressive. He would quietly leave the room. If he’s angry or upset he likes to be on his own to work his way out of the problem,” she said.
“And not just Suraj. I am very fond of Aditya uncle and Zarina aunty too. They are like family to me and my mother,” she added.
When asked point blank if Suraj Pancholi
ever ill-treated her, Janvi promptly said, “No! Never! Do you think I’d have been with him for nearly six years if he ever did anything like that? When I read the news accusing him of physical abuse and what-not, I was too shocked for words. Sooraj can never behave like this. If he was that guy, I would have seen that side of him at least once in all those years we were together.”
Janvi continued to defend her former boyfriend Suran Pancholi
by saying “I don’t think any girl knows him better than I do. It’s impossible to dislike Sooraj. We were friends for the longest time even before we started dating. Even after we broke up we remained friends. Our families are also close. My mom loves Sooraj like her own son. When he would come home she would cook for him. Sooraj’s biggest weakness is his over-emotional nature. He gets upset by any hint of unpleasantness. To inflict pain or violence is unthinkable for him. He is one of the most soft-hearted souls I know. He not only treats his parents, sister and close friends with utmost love and affection, he treats even his domestic help, staff and driver like family.”

: Anand L Rai Rating
: Three and a half stars Raanjhanna is a Romantic love story
that does not fall within the confines of a dull Bollywood Romance.
A good show from everyone in the film and Dhanush projects excellence whenever he appears on the screen. Dhanush has got all the eyes of the watcher as a romantic hero in his Hindi debut and not with the look of a Bollywood Hero. Sonam Kapoor seems to have bettered her acting skills and she looks quite convincing before and after interval.
The dialogues have been sketched down soundly. Dialogues are convincing making the characters of the movie impressionable.
A.R. Rahman's soundtrack is music to the ears and the film is rightly filled with song and dance sequences. The ones that are truly likeable are 'Piya Milenge', 'Tum Tak', the title track and 'Tu Mun Shudi,' which, by the way, is quite similar to 'Dhakka Laga Bukka' from Mani Ratnam's 'Yuva'.
Be it for its technical pros or for Dhanush's Bollywood debut
, 'Raanjhanaa' makes for a good watch this weekend.
