Aamir,Urmilla,&Jackie did gr8!!!!!!!!!!!
1 January 2000 | by (Pennsylvania,USA) – See all my reviews

I loved Rangeela since the first day I've seen it. I first saw it in 1995. I started to like Urmilla. She looked really cute. I appreciated Aamir Khan's role. He usually plays the innocent quiet dude. But the Munna I saw was a remarkable act that any man in this film industry would die to have. Even in Ghulam his acting was as gr8 as a KHANDALA!! He got me in tears. It is now 2000 & I own the movie & I love it!! The songs done by A.R Rehman were good. It is a film that n-e-1 would love to see. I have a list of my favorite TOP 20 films ever. & Rangeela is 3rd. I felt bad that Aamir didn't win for Best Actor. Why is it that there is always some1 who backs his way up? I mean DDLJ just took over(my 2nd fave film.) It is upsetting that he didn't get an award. I mean Jackie got best supporting actor & Urmilla got appreciated. Ever since I saw the film, Mili was a name I loved. Our family's name of the fish is MILI. We all love Urmilla in my house. We all definitely loved Aamir from the start. His best film was JJWS, & Rangeela just led him to even more success. Jackie was a gr8 guy in the film not telling MILI of his love for her. I respected @ the fact that he gave her up to make her & Munna happy. He knows that TANHA TANHA YAHA PE JEENA, YEH KOI BAAT HAI?? Overall to be on my TOP 3 films is a good thing b/c I probably watch 300-400 films a year & most of them end up on my boring list.Rangeela is a film that will always be in my heart & the 3rd best film ever. The music by A.R was unbeatable.Esp. Tanha tanha. Asha did a good job & so did the lyrics by Mehboob.The area & background of this film was awesome. RANGEELA-I LOVE YOU.love 1 of the gr8 experienced rangeeli fans-anisha datta!!
