Movie Info

"Rangoon" is an epic love story, taking a beautiful film star from the film sets of 1944 Bollywood to the jungles of the India-Burma border where she must entertain the English and Indian troops. In the midst of battles and betrayals, Julia (Kangana Ranaut) falls in love with a young Indian soldier Nawab (Shahid Kapoor), and learns some bitter truths about the dream of Indian independence. Battle lines are drawn when her mentor and lover Rusi (Saif Ali Khan) learns of the torrid love affair.

  • Bollywood's attempt at a serious wartime romance is something of an ambitious misfire.

  • Rangoon somehow manages to be emotionally resonant despite being overstuffed. This is no small feat given how many different genres, tones, and characters this film juggles.

  • In this time of pronounced division, it's reassuring to know east and west can still play nicely together.

  • Chemistry is not a factor of good acting alone, it emerges from great writing. Therein lies the problem with Rangoon.

  • Much like Quentin Tarantino has done for years, master craftsman Vishal Bhardwaj creates the many worlds of Rangoon with one eye on the past and the other winking at the future.

  • Saif gives his movie-entrepreneur act a razor-sharp quality. And, Shahid is outstanding.
