Amitabh Bachchan unhappy with ‘Raavan’ editing


Prime VIP
But Santosh Sivan and Vikram disagree

Amitabh Bachchan has kicked up a little storm in the Raavan camp by expressing his displeasure about the way the newly released movie has been edited. According to Big B, the poor editing affected his son Abhishek Bachchan’s performance.

“Lot of merited film edited out, causing inconsistent performance and narrative. Abhishek's erratic behavior was due to symbolic 10 heads visually appearing and each giving him different attitudes to adopt for a situation, he would then finally shake them off and decide.

“.. It's sad, in the edit you only see the after effect of that thinking process, hence inconsistent. In the edit all the visual heads got cut and you see a confused Beera expression and wonder why?(sic),” tweeted Bachchan.

However, the film’s cinematographer Santosh Sivan has come to Mani Ratnam’s defence.

“I personally think everyone has a right to their own opinion. At the end of the day, it's the director's call. It's a different view point he has taken on 'Raavanan' which is a huge hit in the South,” said Sivan.

Vikram, who acts in both Hindi and Tamil versions, said that audience will judge whether the movie is good or not.
