A thoughtprovoking, soul-stirring wake up call to the youth of India. An engrossing entertainer from a genre that's still young in Indian cinema. A film that fiercely eyeballs you, grabs you by the solar and rattles the nonchalance out of you. A glorious tapestry with layers upon layers of the moments and decisions that make the lives of beautifully defined characters. Engrossing entertainment meets taut social comment with perfect timing in Rang De Basanti. Wake up India, Rang De Basanti is here!

RDB adapts a rather unusual format of screenwriting and the sequencing of scenes too is quite odd with the scenes shifting from historical to contemporary setting in alternate frames.

One of my favourite pastimes while watching a Bollywood movie is to second-guess the director, think up what's going to happen next.

  Set in the present and pre independence times, this movie flawlessly depicts the inner conflicts of five friends, who rise to the occasion and demand justice for their friend’s life, that was lost while serving the country.
