Critic Reviews for Rang De Basanti (Paint it Yellow)
The simple-minded presentation ultimately makes it ring hollow.
An ambitious melding of history, politics, romance and patriotism within the parameters of a commercial Hindi movie.
Already a cultural phenomenon in India, this reformist melodrama by Rakesh Omprakash Mehra (Aks) uses razor-sharp technique and an eavesdropper's ear for dialogue to update the patriotic fervor of Bollywood's golden age.
Mehra's Bafta-nominated attempt to combine political drama and traditional entertainment remains entirely compelling.
Accomplished and universally appealing, this is the way Bollywood films should be made.
Audience Reviews for Rang De Basanti (Paint it Yellow)
While at first it seems like a tiresome succession of nice-looking music videos, not even caring to explain how the character can make that kind of film without money, it soon gets worse with a reprehensible message, openly advocating the use of violence to change the country.
