Ranbanka has hit the screens very silently. Having said that several films are screened without much hype but gain accolades. Does Ranbanka fall under this category? 


Manish Paul is staying in Mumbai with his wife Pooja Thakur and son. For the purpose of a job, he shifts to Mathura. A local rowdy Ravi Kishan (whose sibling is an MLA) falls for Pooja and wants to attain her by any means. And our typical Bollywood hero seeks to violence.


It is the second outing of Manish Paul, after Micky Virus in 2013. The story can make it big (it reminds Darr many times), but Ranbanka is not presented well. What can a common man do to fight against the evils of the current system? This is the crux of the film. Director Aryeman could have worked on the subject in a better fashion.

Star Performances

1. Manish Paul, though trying to do his best, struggles to balance between a responsible family man and the anguished person. Ravi Kishan as the obsessed rowdy does an average job though exaggerating sometimes. Pooja Thakur is quite ok.
2. The rowdyism is quite exaggerated. 

What's there?

1. The climax is the best part of the film. 
2. Few good scenes are there in the flick including those between the lead pair. 

What's not there?

1. The background score is not appealing. 
2. The flick is in predictable lines. 
3. The obsession of the villain doesn't strike the right chord. 
4. Certain scenes could have been avoided. 
5. There are some scenes without any logic. 
6. One only tends to laugh at some of the fighting scenes, instead of getting emotionally connected. 
7. There are certain deafening scenes in the flick. 


The film could have worked well in the 90s. But come on..the tastes of the audiences have changed, and they want films of different genres.
