Rang De Basanti, the name of a film that everybody must have seen by now. The film that somewhere and somehow inspires you to do something for you country.
Yesterday on the eve of Republic Day the cast and crew of the Rakeysh OmPrakash Mehra's film Rang De Basanti celebrated 5 years of its success.
A special screening of the film was organised for everyone in-order to celebrate the fifth anniversary of the film. The crowd included actor Aamir Khan with wife Kiran Rao, director Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra, Kunal Kapoor, Sharman Joshi and Atul Kulkarni and producer Ronnie Screwvala. The party was organised at the producers house.
Rang De Basanti speaks about a British documentary filmmaker who wants to make a film on the Dairy entries of her Grandfather, who was an ex-officer in the British Army. The story is on the freedom fighters of India. She meets a group of five friends in India and asks the five young people to act in her film. While they start off with the film in a not so serious manner, the actual krantikari in them takes birth when they lose one of their friend in a crash of a fighter aircraft. They then come across all the corruptions in the Indian government system which was responsible for the demise of their friend. This incident changes the entire plot of the story and transforms the carefree and lively men to passionate and serious human beings who want to avenge their friends death and eradicate the corruption from the Indian system.
