Where did you watch this movie?

Set in the holy city of Benaras, ‘Raanjhanaa’ unfolds the story of a Tamil Bramhin Kundan (Dhanush K. Raja) who develops a crush on the Muslim Zoya (Sonam Kapoor) in childhood. In fact, it was a crush-at-first-sight for Kundan. The crush grows into love as they arrive on the threshold of puberty. The boy proposes love but the girl rejects. But after getting slapped 16 times, slitting his wrist and some emotional blackmailing later, the boy gets his way with the girl. Their romance is killed by the girl's orthodox parents even before it surges when she is sent to another city to finish her studies. 8 years later, the boy grows into a man, who is now waiting eagerly to have his beloved back in town but the girl (now a grown up woman), has found a mate of a better bearing. Doomed love, ill-timed death, revenge and some youth-led political campaigns dot the rest of the film's story. The film takes a turn when Zoya returns to her hometown after eight long years only to find some things changed, and others surprisingly the same.
