Sumptuously designed and beautifully shot.
The movie never finds the right balance between momentum and exposition, and way too much historical information has been crammed into voice-over narration.
A gorgeously lensed, well-structured audience-pleaser that harks back to classic Hollywood blockbusters of the '50s and '60s.
Mangal Pandey is too dull. You'd forget it once you walk out of the hall.
This is a big, spectacular film that may even be an education for American audiences. We see little historical spectacle from Hollywood these days and hopefully Bollywood will help fill the gap.
A rousing, well-made epic that deserves to find a wider audience in this country.
A lush, dashing melodrama based on the Sepoy Mutiny of 1857; beautiful costumes, dance, photography.
The Rising succeeds in entertaining and educating audiences about an important turning point in Indian history. However, where it stumbles is in its inability to engage on an emotional level.
A rousing, if melodramatic, history lesson.
Anti-imperialist Bollywood winner
[A]n electrifying testament to the unstoppable power of the individual to make a difference.
An interesting movie that centralizes around the friendship between two individuals, one Indian and the other British, during British colonial India. Mangal Pandey saved William Gordon's life, and the two become good friends. Exhausted by many years of cruel tyranny, an uprising begins in search for freedom. Great cast- Aamir Khan, Rani Mukherjee, Amisha Patel, and Toby Stephens. Worthy!
It was beautifully shot, and the message was a positive one. Unfortunately, I have a lot of gripes that prevent me from thoroughly enjoying it. For instance, the voice over narration, which was probably there for an illiterate audience who didn't speak a word of English, felt like it was telling me things I either already knew, or could easily figure out. Many of the female characters were two-dimensional, and seemed to only be put in the movie to add a romantic arc and little else. A shame, seeing as the actresses involved, Amisha Patel and Rani Mukherjee in particular, were fantastic. The movie was fairly decent overall, but felt a little too "epic" for it's own good. It's lengthy running time could've been trimmed down quite a bit. The last twenty minutes, I have to say, are some of the best last twenty minutes I've ever seen in a movie, and that makes up for a lot of the gripes I initially had with it.
