Rangoon - Movie Reviews

Much Kangana Ranaut, Such Wow
Rangoon haunts in unlikely fashion and, while the director's most straightforward picture, holds enough of its own marvels to justify multiple viewings,'
I’m going with two and a half out of five.
Rajeev Masand
There are reluctant bodyguards, sacrificing soldiers, national anthem being sung, atrocities on common folk, and a bridge on the river Kwai that should have been blown up by at least one warring side. The movie is so long you are too tired to call it names when it is over.

Rangoon is too fuzzy and half-hearted
It appears the filmmakers were keen to make a film on India during World War 2, because, to the best of my knowledge, no one has. Julia, the heroine at the centre, is a minor McGuffin at best.
Watch out for the bloody brilliant performances of Shahid Kapoor, Kangana Ranaut and Saif Ali Khan
Rangoon is not Vishal Bhardwaj's best directorial venture, but it deserves a one-time watch.
An emotionally appealing love story set at the backdrop of second world war and Indian Freedom Movement.

Had the film been snappier, shorter, it would have been more impactful. If you dig Vishal Bhardwaj’s brand of cinema, a one-time watch wouldn’t hurt much.

Outlook India
On the whole, RANGOON is an epic love saga with strong emotional quotient, riveting second hour and nail-biting finale. Watch it for its layered plot, serpentine twists, proficient storytelling and bravura performances. A content-driven film that’s worth a recommendation!

Although ‘Rangoon’ is unable to measure up to the director’s other masterpieces like ‘Haider’, ‘Omkara’ or ‘Maqbool’, the film has the quality to keep the audience hooked.

Watching Rangoon is just like reading a book. You connect with the story so completely that it virtually becomes a part of you.
Box Office India
There’s a dialogue in the film where Saif tells a British officer, “We’re actors, we know how to convince people.” That isn’t entirely true here. Borrowing Julia’s oft-repeated phrase, “Bloody hell’, one wishes these three had truly dropped their guard. It would’ve certainly added more rang to this movie extravaganza.
