Story

Rangoon is an intense love story that has been set during 1940s during the Second World War. Rangoon revolves around three characters Russi Billimoria (Saif Ali Khan), Jamadar Nawab Malik (Shahid Kapoor) and Julia (Kangana Ranaut). While Russi is an action hero and a filmmaker, Julia is a famous actress and Nawab is the game changer. Rangoon is all about the love stories between them and is showcased about the love, passion and emotions. Watch Rangoon to know about the complete story and what happened next.

The first half of Rangoon starts with a bang and all the three leading actors thrive to perform to their best. Especially Shahid and Kangana have been outstanding. The movie has a predictable plot but it is the narration of the characters and their performances which lead the show. The entire first half has been decent and the songs have been extremely colorful. The performances by the lead actors make a strong impact across the audience.

The second half of the film manages to stand convincing but it is the slow pace and dragged episodes that disturb the audience. The songs have been shot well and the backdrop of Second World War has been extremely convincing. The pre-climax episodes make the film interesting and intense. The climax has been decent and on the whole, Rangoon is quite convincing if one ignores some flaws.

Performance :

Saif Ali Khan has been decent with his performance however some of his episodes look dragged. Saif has been showcased in many shades throughout the film. Shahid steals the show as the man on mission and is the major highlight of Rangoon. He has been rugged with confidence and his grey shades have been well presented. Kangana Ranaut has been shameless, brave and fearless throughout the film. No other actress can perform the character of Julia with utmost perfection other than her. All the other actors have been perfect and apt.

The story of Rangoon has been derived from Second World War and it has been layered with three different characters. The screenplay and the dialogues are the major highlights of the movie. They make a strong impact throughout. The music and the background score strike hard. The cinematography is the major highlight of the film. Vishal Bharadwaj impresses the audience big time with his directorial abilities.

Final Word

Rangoon is one of the finest love sagas in the recent times. Shahid Kapoor, Saif Ali Khan and Kangna Ranaut steal the show.

  • Half Girlfriend Movie Review

    Half Girlfriend Movie Review

    Half Girlfriend has a half baked plot which spoils the entire film. Half Girlfriend is better as a novel than to be made as a movie. The first half has been filled with characters which are mostly confused. Most of the episodes look faked and the love story too has not been well narrated. The interval episodes have been well showcased and the songs have been just ok. On the whole the first half of Half Girlfriend looks passable with lot of flaws and unwanted episodes. The second half of Half Girlfriend dips down completely because of the slammed screenplay and the poor narration. The emotional episodes lack interest and the songs turn barriers. The pre-climax episodes irritates the audience completely and a simple, predictable climax makes Half Girlfriend a massive debacle.

    Hindi Medium Movie Review

    Hindi Medium focuses on the lives of Indian couple and the challenges they face in the society. The film has been thoroughly entertaining and passable. Most of the episodes look realistic and they have been thought provoking. Most of the audience get related to some of them even atleast once during the film. With not much unwanted episodes, the first half of Hindi Medium has been good, engaging and entertaining. The second half of Hindi Medium too has enough ingredients to impress the audience however the film dips down at parts. The slow pace is sure a worrying factor however the film picks back again before the damage takes place. The climax looks decent and heart touching. It is Irrfan’s show all over that drives the film completely. On the whole the second half of Hindi Medium is completely decent.

    Meri Pyaari Bindu Movie Review

    The entire first half of Meri Pyaari Bindu has been fresh and engaging. The love story and the bonding between the lead actors has been well showcased. However as time passes the audience get bored with the repeated content and the episodes. The audience will be left surprised to wait to end up the love story. The songs have been extremely impressive and on the whole the first half of Meri Pyaari Bindu has been decent. The second half of Meri Pyaari Bindu shatters the dreams of the audience completely as the film turns a boring feast. Meri Pyaari Bindu’s second half is an emotionless yawnfest for the audience throughout. Some of the most interesting episodes have been narrated without interest and they make no impact. Once again the songs have been decent and the climax looks completely predictable.

    Sarkar 3 Movie Review

    The first half of Sarkar 3 starts with a power packed speech of Sarkar. However within minutes the film takes a huge down and turns extremely predictable. One who has been following Sarkar right from the first instalment will be left irritated with Sarkar 3 as the film offers nothing. All the major twists are completely predictable and the first half of Sarkar 3 is a huge disappointment with more unnecessary drama throughout.The second half too has been loosely executed and many unwanted episodes kill the interest among the audience. Some of the interesting scenes have been well hurried and Ram Gopal Varma fails completely in penning an interesting script for Sarkar 3. There are a lot of loose ends in the story, such as when an important character gets killed, there’s only one follow-up scene to it and no mention of it later.

    Baahubali 2: The Conclusion Movie Review

    Baahubali: The Conclusion is much lavish and vast than the first installment of the movie. Mixed with right emotions and action, Baahubali: The Conclusion will impress the audience to the core. Rajamouli made sure each and every question of the audience will be answered in the movie. The action episodes have been completely destructive and the songs have been an eye feast. The emotional drama has been well narrated throughout and the first half of Baahubali: The Conclusion is truly an epic and will live up the expectations. Each and every frame of the film has been impressive.The second half of Baahubali: The Conclusion is all about the emotional journey and the major story of the film unfolds here. The crucial episodes have been well showcased and the action episodes carried the film well. Though the emotional content makes the film slow, the grand visuals along with the VFX and the production values make the film sit on the top. SS Rajamouli should be widely appreciated for his stupendous presentation throughout the movie. The destructive climax will sure leave the audience disturbing. On the whole the second half of Baahubali: The Conclusion is an epic.

    Begum Jaan Movie Review

    Right from the first frame, Begum Jaan misses the clarity throughout. The film has some realistic and stunning episodes that surprise the audience and it is Vidya Balan who tries hard to save the film but could not. The first half has some engaging episodes which make the film passable. The performances by the lead cast sure makes lot of difference. On the whole the first half of Begum Jaan is slightly decent but not up to the mark.The second half which is quite crucial for such films fails miserably in all the available ways. The film has some interesting plot but it is the screenplay and the narration which makes Begum Jaan fall flat. Vidya Balan’s stupendous and fearless performance has been utterly wasted throughout. The pre-climax episodes kill the film completely and a decent climax makes no difference. On the whole the second half of Begum Jaan is a huge failure in all the available ways.
