Reel & Real Spectral Phenomenon
25 April 2004 | by (Mumbai (Bombay), India) – See all my reviews

Rangeela, released in 1995 was and will ever be one of the finest works of art by a complete team of cast and crew members. From among all the slew of films that were made at that time, this one was the topgun and the undisputed champion. This product is right from the top shelf and even exceeded the great expectations that reviewers have! It is the fusion of the Reel and Real which enables this film to stand on its own philosophy. There are some grand principles and ideas conveyed within the story in a style and manner which even a child can understand and enjoy. This is a terrific combined effort from the team of Aamir Khan, Ram Gopal Varma and AR Rahman. The application of the industry aspects and the in-film director, Steven Kapoor played by Gulshan Grover are so wonderfully plotted that all Jackie Shroff has to do is to fit into the in-film hero which he has done very well. Above all, this is a perfect showcase of Aamir Khan's colorful personality in a role which is almost contrary to his own "known" character. I wonder if anybody else could have pulled out such a performance the way Aamir has done in this film. His humor and style in this film are a display of pure brilliance and true talent. In one statement, this film has a touch of everything and the observant viewer shall catch the theme which he grasps. If the fate of the lovers gets painful, there is always the glamour and dance of Urmila to focus on and when that gets unrealistic, there is the jolt from the blue that transports the watcher out of the dream onto hard reality! A Classic work of art and science (The spectral recording of the soundtracks) from a gem of a team of artists- Rangeela has all the colors of the movie industry within it!
