Ajay, Ash promise haunting romance in 'Raincoat'
Celebrated Bengali director Rituparno Ghosh returns with the intense romantic drama, "Raincoat", starring two of the biggest names in Bollywood - Ajay Devgan and Aishwaraya Rai.
"Raincoat" is about two people who share the same village in Bihar - a young man, Manoj (Ajay Devgan), and a woman, Niru (Aishwarya Rai). They are two people joined by love but separated by circumstance.
Manoj is jilted by Niru, who chooses to marry the man of her mother's choice, and he is reduced to begging money off his friends to set up a new business venture.
The story begins with Manoj leaving his mother to travel to Kolkata in search of funds. The city of Kolkata has a different platform of hope for him.
He can't forget Niru though, and one day picks up the courage to visit her in a neighbouring town. The monsoons have arrived and he lurks outside the house equipped with his friend's old raincoat, not sure whether to announce his presence or not.
Finally the ex-lovers meet and their grief-stricken love story is told in flashback as each lover's current anguish is also delicately and painfully laid bare.
Told in flashbacks and smooth transitions between past and present, "Raincoat" is a story of love between Niru and Manoj that endures despite circumstances, despite separation and hopelessness.
Narrated against the backdrop of a rainy afternoon, a raincoat literally becomes instrumental in bringing out the love Niru and Manoj have nurtured within their hearts since childhood for each other.
The chamber piece is entirely different from anything that Ajay and Aishwarya have done even in the unbelievably beautiful "Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam".
