Critics Reviews Audience Reviews

When 'Rang De Basanti' was launched, most of the people within and outside the industry believed that it is one of those patriotic/pre-independence flicks. Also, one thought that it would mark the hat-trick of films from such genre for Aamir Khan after 'Lagaan' and 'Mangal Pandey-The Rising' with a contemporary 'Dil Chahta Hai' in between. In contrast, the promos of this film by Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra (who had earlier directed the Amitabh Bachchan - Manoj Bajpai starrer 'Aks') tell a different tale as the movie appears to be cool 'n' hip flick with a strong rustic background. Also starring Madhavan, Atul Kulkarni, Sharman Joshi, Kunal Kapoor and Soha Ali Khan in important roles with veterans like Waheeda Rehman, Om Puri, Anupam Kher and Kirron Kher, this UTV production has music by A.R.Rehman (who also composed for Aamir Khan's Lagaan and Mangal Pandey) and lyrics by Prasoon Joshi who made waves for his work in 'Hum Tum' last year.
