RAANJHANAA is perhaps the first full length feature film by the mainstream producers and directors focusing on the enigma and mystique of Varanasi. It indeed is a matter of self-trepidation that while Varanasi has been arguably the oldest city in the world, it has not got the due cinematic attention that it ought to have received, though it has been compensated to an extent by the attention that has bestowed on it by the filmmakers from around the world. As the film releases today, it is a worthwhile occasion to take a trip down memory lane and see the films which have used Varanasi as a backdrop in one way or the other:
