Ramgopal Varma is itching to tell a new story in his movies. You may garland him for his efforts or loathe him if you feel letdown, but you need to hand it to him for picking up stories that defy stereotype.
This time, in 'Rann', the maverick film-maker does an expose on the games the heavyweights in the media play to further their interests. RGV goes into the newsrooms and also behind it and throws light on the politician-industrialist-media nexus. Also, it's an insider's account of how news channels that are greedy for ratings sensationalize stories to grab eyeballs.
On surface, you don't want to know what goes behind the scenes and how, at times, news are 'created' by vested interests. But 'Rann' scratches the surface and opens a can of worms. 'Rann' also mirrors the fact that just like there are good and bad people in every field, there're some rotten ones in the media too who succumb to temptations and create news to climb the ladder of success.
'Rann' is a serious film and RGV knows what he's talking this time. It wouldn't be erroneous to state that you recall RGV's 'Sarkar' while watching 'Rann', even though the two films are as diverse as chalk and cheese. You recall' Sarkar' because 'Rann' is an equally powerful film that shows a world we've only seen from the exterior.
