5 Things We Loved About Rangoon

Rangoon

Rangoon

Vishal Bharadwaj’s Rangoon is intrinsically a film about romance in the time of war and is set in pre-independent India in 1943 amidst the on-going World War II. The film touches upon the two on-going movements back then – one of Ahimsa by Mahatma Gandhi, and the other of Subhash Chandra Bose – a more violent attempt to get India independence along with the Indian National Army.

Amidst this, we have three main characters – the stoic Nawab Malik (Shahid Kapoor), an Indian soldier who has just spent eight months as a prisoner in Japanese custody. He somehow escapes this, establishing himself as the brave, unabashed soldier who will do anything for his country. Then there’s the ridiculously good looking Russi Billimoria (Saif Ali Khan), a well established studio owner who used to once be an action superstar until he loses his hand in a stunt accident. Lastly, there’s Julia (Kangana Ranaut), a leading action heroine, Rusi’s muse and Nawab’s lover. She’s physically strong yet emotionally vulnerable as she discovers herself through the forests of Arunachal Pradesh.

I watched the film yesterday and here are five things we loved about the film.

Shahid & Kangana’s Chemistry

Shahid Kapoor, Kangana Ranaut

Shahid Kapoor, Kangana Ranaut

Absolutely electrifying. These two were terrific and brought so much intensity and passion to the screen, it’s almost hard to believe there are rumours doing the rounds that the two don’t get along. This pairing, honestly, might just be my favourite one. I was rooting for them right from the very beginning. PS – I must add that this was one of Shahid’s best performances so far. A full 10/10 for his acting chops.

Saif Ali Khan’s Fabulous Performance

Saif Ali Khan, Kangna Ranaut

Saif Ali Khan, Kangana Ranaut

This film has made me realise that Saif Ali Khan is one of those actors who has been drastically under-appreciated. Saif as the jealous and controlling fiancé is absolutely amazing and proves what a fine actor he is.

Music

Good, soulful music is always synonymous with a Vishal Bharadwaj film. Ye Ishq Hai is undoubtedly the highlight of the film.

Supporting Cast

As great as the leading trio was, the supporting cast were the ones who held the film together. Satoru Kawaguchi as the Japanese soldier was incredible. His comic timing was on-point and he makes you feel a range of emotions. You want to be angry with him but can’t help rooting for him either. His scenes with Shahid and Kangana stand out in the film, and that says quite something about his potential. Saharsh Shukla also doesn’t go unnoticed as Julia’s spot boy.

Julia Is A Total Badass

Kangana Ranaut

Kangana Ranaut

Kangana Ranaut’s character is the heart of Rangoon. She’s ruthless, fights the bad guys with her whip, jumps from one train to the other. She’s tough yet beautifully vulnerable and brings to the fore all the shades of being a woman. What was interesting is that Julia is the one actress who could bring commercial success to the film and her studio, bearing a striking resemblance to what Kangana is like in real life. She’s one of the few female actresses who can carry off a film just as well as a male actor, and this without a doubt is Kangana’s film all the way.

PS – I want to add again that Shahid Kapoor was AMAZING in the film!

If you’ve been a fan of Vishal Bharadwaj’s films, Rangoon is a must watch. Head to the theatre and let us know what you thought of the film. 🙂

Kangana Ranaut, Shahid Kapoor, Saif Ali Khan’s film receives a MIXED response from critics

Kangana Ranaut, Shahid Kapoor

Kangana Ranaut, Shahid Kapoor

Kangana Ranaut, Shahid Kapoor, Saif Ali Khan’s much awaited film Rangoon has finally released! What has caused more hype to the film apart from the stellar cast is the man donning the director’s hat, Vishal Bharadwaj. The story revolves around individuals and how the dynamics of love change their lives. Evidently, it is a love triangle between the stars in the film set during the time of World War 2. The movie delivers war, love, deceit in forms that only Bharadwaj can compile together! So with the film finally releasing, critics have given it a mixed response. From good to mediocre to bad ratings have been given to the film. Although it’s mostly the storytelling that has miffed the critics, who expected a lot more, performance wise, they’ve all done well. Reviewers can’t stop raving about the brilliance of Kangana, who quite possibly owns the show but not without the astounding performance of Shahid and Saif! Check out the reviews of critics of the industry.

BollywoodLife: 4 stars

The three protagonists – Kangana, Shahid and Saif deliver their best performances even in a plot that sometimes curbs them. Julia is a brave heroine, she fearless and not shameful of admitting that she’s a bastard.

India.com: 3.5 stars

With so much exposure to Hollywood movies for our audience, it’s not easy to do justice to the setting. But Vishal Bhardwaj and his team deserve a pat on their backs for recreating the foregone era. Be it the production design, the beautiful locales used and and the props, the technical values are simply brilliant. Pankaj Kumar’s camera work effortlessly captures the hues of the forest, the pristine green waters of the river as well as the dark grey clouds that are a metaphor for the looming doom for some of the characters.

India Today: 2 stars

At two hours and forty seven minutes, Rangoon doesn’t satisfy either as a period love story or a rousing drama about India’s fight for independence. Working on a big canvas, Bhardwaj has enough grandeur and glamour (the sets and costumes are striking) but is short on an engaging narrative. The overblown and protracted climax, with a touch of Tarantino thrown in, makes one giggle.

Hindustan Times: 2 stars

It may be one of the most awaited films in recent times but Rangoon is a royal misfire.Within minutes of the movie’s beginning, you realise the promise of a heart-wrenching period drama was a farce — a set-up to promote a self-indulgent film that doesn’t know what it wants to be. The director Vishal Bhardwaj has desperately tried to play to the gallery, and has miserably failed.

Scroll.in

The movie’s strongest scenes are set in the Army camp where Russi and Nawab duel, literally and figuratively, for Julia’s soul. Since Rangoon equates love for another human being with love for the country, this romance, like the movie itself, is all over the place.

Firstpost: 2.5 stars

On the face of it, this is a setting bubbling with possibilities, and considerable swathes of Rangoon (especially in its second half) do mine that potential. Ranaut delivers a seemingly effortless, chameleon-like performance as a woman who is by turns fragile and fierce, hurting yet invulnerable, a child who grows into a woman during the course of the film. The actress and the character she plays here, possess a body that is as intriguing as her mind: she appears delicate, yet explodes with energy and athleticism when life demands it of her.

With such mixed reviews, what would you do this weekend? Will you go watch Rangoon or will you skip it? Tell us in the comments section below and stay tuned to this space for hot scoop.

Saif Ali Khan Just Confirmed Sara Ali Khan’s Debut

Saif Ali Khan and Sara Ali Khan

Saif Ali Khan and Sara Ali Khan

There has been a lot of debate going on about who Sara Ali Khan will debut with and who will launch her. it was first being said that Sara will debut opposite Hrithik Roshan in Karan Malhotra‘s next but that news soon fizzled out. Later, Bollywood’s rumour mill was abuzz with news of Saif not wanting Sara to be launched by Karan Johar because he doesn’t want her to become like Alia Bhatt. You can read more about it here.

Now, in a new turn of events, Saif confirmed with Pinkvilla that Sara will indeed be launched by Karan Johar.

I am very happy to see Sara doing whatever she has her heart set on. We talk constantly and she discusses whatever she wants to and I give her my advice. But eventually it is her decision. I think she is going to (debut with Karan). I am very happy she is working with Karan Johar because I think he is brilliant with newcomers and he will launch her correctly. He is a very intelligent and a passionate filmmaker and he understands films. I am very pleased that she is with him.”

So, there you have it – straight from the horse’s mouth! Can’t wait to see how things shape up for this young actress.

Here’s Why Saif Ali Khan Doesn’t Want Karan Johar To Launch His Daughter Sara Ali Khan

Saif Ali Khan and Sara Ali Khan

Saif Ali Khan and Sara Ali Khan

Reports of Saif Ali Khan‘s daughter Sara Ali Khan making her big, Bollywood debut have been doing the round for a long time now. While it was assumed that Karan Johar would launch Sara given his closeness to Kareena Kapoor and Saif, we hear that this might not actually be the case.

According to a report in Pinkvilla, Bebo and her girl gang often talk about how Alia Bhatt‘s career has taken off the way it has only because Karan launched her and has been so involved in every step of her career. Everyone know that Karan recommends Alia to directors and actors for all the big projects, and that is what has helped her come this far. Of course, we can’t ignore Alia’s abundant acting talent, but we’d have to agree with this.

But here’s what Saif thinks – he feels that Karan is too involved in Alia’s career and he doesn’t want anyone to have that kind of affect on Sara’s career. He wants her to be more independent. Kareena and Saif are have apparently been at loggerheads when it comes to Sara’s debut. While she understands where Saif is coming from, she feels a launch by KJo can do great things for Sara’s career.

Interesting! We’ll have to wait and see which direction Sara’s career heads in. It’s her choice at the end of the day.

No wonder Kareena Kapoor has been time and again mentioning how “Taimur is the most beautiful baby”. In fact, this reminds us of all Taimur’s newborn pictures that had gone viral the very day he was born. Especially the one with Saif embracing him. Priyanka Chopra had even complimented the little one saying, “It is such a wonderful moment and it is such a beautiful baby and he already has Kareena’s pout.” Following which, Kareena too had proudly replied to the praises saying, “My son is the most gorgeous man this side of the equator. I take it as a compliment because yes his lips are amazing.” Indeed, he has the best features!

With a beautiful soul like this, Kareena admits she is totally enjoying every bit of her motherhood as she even revealed, “There are a lot of responsibilities on you once you become a mother. You feel that your heart is not beating inside you but outside your body and that is the biggest responsibility. Both me and Saif always wanted this. We used to talk about all these things. Both of us see ourselves in Taimur and this is the most special thing.”

While all kids are god-gifted! We’re sure Taimur is going to have a pretty huge fan following as and when he grows up. In fact, that way he’s already an internet sensation, isn’t he?

Here’s What Saif Ali Khan Has To Say About His Kids Sara & Ibrahim Wanting To Become Actors

Saif Ali Khan is a doting father to this three kids – Sara, Ibrahim, and now, Taimur. While Sara is all set to make her big Bollywood debut in a Karan Johar film, his son Ibrahim too has been bitten by the acting bug and wants to pursue this is a career eventually. Saif told TOI about how there’s nothing wrong with this and it’s all in the genes.

On Sara becoming an actress:

Who’s to blame, it’s in her genes. I remember on the first world tour we were on together, I spotted her peeking through the curtains backstage to watch the actors dancing on stage, mesmerised. That’s when she decided this is what she wanted to do. Cinema has changed since and she’s also realised there’s a lot of angst in the profession, especially if you have not quite arrived yet. I worry about that, but what can I do? If she discusses her profession with me, she will get an opinion, but the decision is hers to make. Karan is good with newcomers and according to me, he is the perfect person for her.”

On Ibrahim making up his mind:

He talks more of rugby and hockey and less about how exciting his academic career is. He’s hidden his report card, I keep asking for it. But otherwise, he’s settled well. He’s poised and decent which is nice. Yes, both my kids want to work in films, it’s one of the best jobs in India. I just don’t want them to be disappointed which is why education is a good back-up.”

It’s so nice to see Bollywood parents stress on education.
