After enthralling international audiences with adrealine driven films such as the blockbuster Race series, superhit producers Tips Films are ready to take audiences on a romantic trip down memory lane with the new Millennium‟s answer to the epic romantic hit, Maine Pyaar Kiya, Ramaiya Vastavaiya, releasing on Friday 19th July in UK cinemas through Reliance Entertainment.
Giving the film added star appeal is South and North Indian renowned director, choreographer, dancer and actor extraordinaire Prabhu Deva, behind the 100 crore club hits Wanted, Rowdy Rathore, who hangs up his action boots to direct this Summer‟s freshest rom-com. The film sees producer Kumar Taurani’s son Girish Kumar make his much anticipated debut. He is joined by Bollywood rising star Shruti Haasan for the remake of Prabhu Deva’s directorial Telugu blockbuster debut “Nuvvostanante Nenoddantana” which was inspired by the 1980s cult Hindi film “Maine Pyaar Kiya”.
Prabhu Deva has enjoyed a highly successful career spanning 15 years and is widely regarded as one of India‟s most influential and avant-garde dancer-choreographers. He is referred to as „India‟s Michael Jackson‟.
Among his cache of award wins, he has two National Film Awards for Best Choreography for Minsaara Kanayu (1997) and Lakshya (2004) as well as a Filmfare Best Choreography Award and Star Screen Award for Lakshya (2004).
Ramaiya Vastavaiya unfolds the sweet yet tumultuous love story between two youngsters Ram (Girish Kumar) and Sona (Shruti Haasan) set against the backdrop of a rural Punjab farm.
Ram always introduces himself as spoilt, naughty and badly behaved. Being the only child of Australia-based billionaire couple Siddharth (Randhir Kapoor) and Ashvini (Poonam Dhillon), he‟s not that far off the mark. Sona is a simple and poor girl from a small Indian village, who has been lovingly raised by her brother Raghu (Sonu Sood), who has worked night and day to make sure Sona gets a good life.
Ram and his snobbish mother Ashvini come to India to attend his cousin Riya‟s wedding. Here he meets Sona, who is Riya‟s childhood friend. Their first meeting is literally a clash between Venus and Mars. Ram, the habitual flirt, gets drawn to this lovely but simple girl from the village.
Young love blossoms but Sona‟s brother Raghu hates the wealthy, and Ram‟s mother has nothing but disdain for the not-so-wealthy. Ram will have to face impossible challenges and Sona will have to witness his hardship and humiliation. How will Ram and Sona face these impossible odds? How can their love have a happy ending?
This colourful and extravagant entertainer replete with music, drama and action will showcase all that Indian cinema does best. Ramaiya Vastavaiya releases on 19th July 2013 in UK cinemas through Reliance Entertainment.
