Ram Gopal Varma 'Rann' is arguably India's first film that solely dedicates itself to exposing the media and its workings, both good and bad.

The film, directed by Ram Gopal Varma stars a host of talented actors, including Amitabh Bachchan, Ritesh Deshmukh, Gul Panag, Sudeep, Neetu Chandra, Suchitra Krishnamurthy, Paresh Rawal, Rajpal Yadav and Mohnish Behl.

Don't miss the film's slideshow (Story in pictures) at Rann .




Amitabh Bachchan as Vijay Harshwardhan Malik

Big B plays Vijay Harshwardhan Malik, the founder of the first ever private news channel in the country - India 24/7. The Harvard-educated Malik is India's most respected media personality.

He is a hardcore upholder of journalistic ethics. No wonder his Channel is battling for survival!

Ritesh Deshmukh as Purab Shastri

A young and dynamic man armed with a degree in journalism, Purab Shastri truly believes that the media should be the check point for the people of a country, and therefore, it should report news, instead of manufacturing news.

Purab's thinking sets him apart from most youngsters of this country. While everyone is chasing their individual dreams, Purab aggressively wants to work towards a better India.

Needless to say, a clash between Purab and the powers-that-be looks inevitable. It is Dangerous to be Right when the Government is Wrong!

Gul Panag as Nandita Sharma

Gul Panag plays Nandita Sharma, an assistant of an Ad filmmaker. She hopes to bag an independent feature film someday. She is in a live-in relationship with her boyfriend Purab. Nandita is smart, educated, and intelligent.

She is also highly indifferent to what's happening in the country, and first thinks about herself and her man, before anything or anybody else. On both counts, she represents the youth of India.

Sudeep as Jay Malik

A go-getter and highly aggressive and ambitious son of Vijay Harshvardhan Malik (Big B), Jay looks at his Dad's news channel purely as a business enterprise that must make profits to justify its existence. He hates that his competitor is doing better than him.

Apparently, Sudeep shares the same onscreen persona as Kay Kay shared with Big B in Sarkar.

Neetu Chandra as Yasmin

Yasmin is Jay Malik's fiancee. She's quite indifferent to what goes on in media.

Suchitra Krishnamurthy as Nalini Kashyap

Nalini is the programming head of Vijay Harshvardhan Malik's news channel, India 24/7. Having been in the industry for long enough, she has developed a practical view of how things operate here. And this comes in direct conflict with what her boss Vijay Harshvardhan Malik, thinks.

Juggling the cut-throat world outside with the idealistic universe of her boss, Nalini Kashyap has her job cut out.

Paresh Rawal as Mohan Pandey

Paresh Rawal plays Mohan Pandey. He is in his bad form once again. Bad in the sense, not a bad role...him playing a baddie.

It is every politician's dream to become the Prime Minister of his country. To that extent, the leader of the opposition Mohan Pandey is no different from his contemporaries. The only difference being - if the need arises, Pandey can and will kill to get the coveted chair.

Rajpal Yadav as Anand Prakash Trivedi

Rajpal Yadav plays a Creative Editor, Anand Prakash Trivedi, who has a knack for sensationalizing even the driest story and making it sound like the story of the decade with super catchy Headlines.

More than any filmmaker, he makes far better movies. Only, he calls them News! Breaking News!

Mohnish Behl as Amrish Kakkar

Amrish was the first to have the vision and the foresight to realize that even the business of delivering news can be made entertaining.

Amrish therefore can be safely held singularly responsible for taking the television news industry to the dogs, or to the heights, depending on how you see it. His channel is no less than a shady brothel, the content that is news is no less than a cheap hooker, and Amrish Kakkar - the most powerful pimp around.

The story of 'Rann' revolves around these interesting and diverse characters. As the drama unfolds, people's morality and conscience is put to test.

The story of Rann is penned by Rohit Banawlikar. Music is by Amar Mohile, Bapi, Tutul, Sanjeev and Jayesh.

The film is produced by Madhu Mantena and Sheetal Vinod Talwar.
