VIEWER'S CUT :RANJHANAA

Thank you Dhanush for playing Kundan this well.
Street smart. Jugaadu guy. Zabardast maal in an ordinary packet (Another close character  I have seen on screen is Bittoo of ‘Band Baaja Baaraat’). The dialogues where you laugh at yourself. Makes Kundan so endearing. You summed up your character yourself, somewhere near the middle of the movie,"Tumse pyaar karna mera talent hai. Ismein tumhara koi haath nahin." (It was my talent to fall in love with you. You have no hand in it). The relentless pursuit of ‘the unachievable dream’. The waiting. The guilt that consumed you.  A small town guy becoming a poster boy of new age political activism.  Sacrificing a thriving political career, a friend , a dedicated woman,familiar lanes of Banaras – all of this for a childhood obsession. 
Sonam Kapoor, your character had so many shades. Innocence in adolescence, conniving as an adult, impressed by a perfect guy, jealous in politics, confused in love. It was one of your better performances …
