"I will not write about Rang De Basanti in my blog" I told myself as I left for the movie today evening.... But man wasnt I blown away!!!..I just cant refrain myself from applauding the beautiful effort thats gone into making it...great job guys. special mention - Rahman's music, esp background score rocks!
I dont necessarily agree with the movie though! it doesnt make sense to kill a rotten politician and get urself killed - as a terrorist that too! There is a dialogue in a Tamil movie "nee Kshatriana irukrahde vida Chankayana irukradhudhaan mukkiyam" - It is better to be Chankaya [cunning and calculative] than being a Kshathriya [a warrior] - I totally believe it. If u are standing up against something and something as sinister as the Indian political system, u've got to use ur brain as much as u use ur heart. You've got to hit in the right manner at the right time and get away with the minimum possible damage on urself! Well, as moved as I was by the first half and beginnings of the second half, the solution it provided in the end was just adrenlaine pumped ruthless reaction. I just wish it was instead planned and executed ingenious coup of the corrupt political system!!!
But hey twas a movie and I enjoyed every minute of it!
I love watching movies on the big screen and this one just made me want to get up and scream,
"INQUILAB ZINDABAD - Vande Mataram!!"
