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,'
Raja Sen, Rediff
I’m going with two and a half out of five.
Rajeev Masand, 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.

Raja Sen, REDIFF
Kangana Ranaut delivers a standout performance in this patchy film
Shubhra Gupta, Indian Express
It definitely helps that the cinematography (by Pankaj Kumar) is so lustrous that you simply cannot take your eyes off the screen
Strong performances by Kangana, Shahid and Saif Ali Khan create 'bloody hell' saga!
Ritika Handoo, Zee News
Rangoon is too fuzzy and half-hearted
Sukanya Verma, Rediff
Kangana Ranaut gets her moment but film’s a patchy effort

Rangoon is too fuzzy and half-hearted
Sukanya Verma, REDIFF
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.

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!

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.
