Product Description

RANG DE BASANTI is a story about the youth of India today.

A young, London based film- maker chances upon the diaries of her grandfather, who served in the British police force in India during the freedom struggle. Excited about these memoirs, she makes plans to shoot a film on the Indian revolutionaries mentioned in the diaries. She comes down to Delhi, and casts a group of five friends to play the pivotal roles of these revolutionaries.

However, products of modern India, the five youngsters initially refuse to be part of the project, as they dont identify with these characters from the past. Not surprising, considering that theyre part of a generation of Indians that believes in consumerism. To them issues like patriotism and giving ones life for ones beliefs is the stuff stuffy text- books are made of. They would rather party than be patriots.

In the film both the 1930s British India and the India Today run parallel and intersect with each other at crucial points. As the film reaches its resolution the line between past and present blurs, as they become one in spirit.

The film changed the face of how youth looks at their rights, their duties and what rebel means to them!

Review

Director Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra merges two plots in RANG DE BASANTI. The first is about a group of friends, their bonding, the carefree lifestyle they lead. The second plot pertains to the past, when freedom fighters sacrificed their lives during the pre-independence era. Without doubt, Mehra's intentions are noble, since portions in the film do succeed in pricking your conscience.Mehra draws parallels between Indians ruled by the British and Indians ruled by corrupt politicians today. The message is subtle at first, but echoes piercingly before it reaches its finale. The transition of the five friends from meaningless to meaningful existence is done brilliantly.

You expect Aamir Khan to deliver yet another astounding performance in RANG DE BASANTI and he does, but it's not Aamir alone that you applaud in the film. Of course, Aamir gets into the skin of the character and delivers a knockout performance from start to end, but the film has more gems when it comes to performances: Siddharth [excellent], Atul Kulkarni [fantastic], Soha Ali Khan [a complete revelation; efficient], Kunal Kapoor [natural] and Sharman Joshi [powerful].Alice Patten is brilliant and besides delivering a flawless performance, her style of speaking Hindi is sure to win a lot of hearts. Madhavan is likeable. Waheeda Rehman is graceful as ever. Both Om Puri and Anupam Kher dont get much scope. Kiron Kher is exceptional yet again. Mohan Agashe, Steven Mckintosh, K.K. Raina and Lekh Tandon are adequate.On the whole, RANG DE BASANTI will have its share of advocates and adversaries. A well-made film, it caters more to the elite and the thinking viewer than the aam junta or the masses. --platform47.com

From my point of view a almost flawless movie. Its a story of today's young generation. there is one line by Aamir khan I liked ""you have two ways, one is sit back and watch what ever is happening, and the second one is getup and take the responsibility to change the system. really it says all. Its movie i will keep watching many more times. --platform47.com
