Rang De Basanti


Jan 25:
RANG DE BASANTI is out(though a week later than scheduled)... at last. Special premieres and shows were screened at INOX and fame multiplex here...

Jan 26:

The wait has come to an end. Had no control on my patience.. After making calls to organise 'movie-mates', rushed to apna own city-centre-ka-INOX. Thanks, to Saptha's Manhattan card, INOX gave 1 ticket free with every ticket purchased !
[Amar Rahe this scheme and Long live Manhattan card !!!]
As far as movie, it was SUPERB. Definitely, worth watching. Here goes one synopsis of the movie...
�eRang De Basanti�f deals with a topic that is very relevant to contemporary times. It talks of several youngsters with different aspirations from life. It brings parallels between present and our revolutuionary past with 'shaheed' freedom fighters. Its story is also partly inspired from the story of real life pilot, Flt.Lt.Abhijit Gadgil who was killed in a MIG crash two years back.
About the movie: All the roles were crafted well and I personally liked Atul Kulkarni's role (both as 'Lakshman' and as 'Ram Prasad Bismil'). Aamir as Daljit Singh aka DJ, is at his best. Madhavan, Sidharth, Sharmaan Joshi, Kunal Kapoor and not to forget the charming young ladies -- Soha Ali Khan and alice Patten have formed the rest of the lead. Cinematography and Music are the other highlights beyond the impressive starcast.
On the whole, Rang de Basanti is more 'Shaheedon ki Paathshaala' than 'Masti ki Paathshaala' ...
Watch it !!! You'll definitely feel and experience the pulse...
PS: Trivia - The above pic (with Aamir on the horse) contains that sequence which was removed from the movie bcos of request (!) from Animal Welfare Board
