Alternate Versions

In the UK, the distributor removed around 2 minutes of footage for a 12A rated theatrical release (instead of a 15 rated release uncut). The cut material removed scenes of strong bloody violence (shootings, stabbings and a decapitation) along with shots of drug misuse (opium smoking). See more »

Could have been better
26 February 2017 | by kinshuk-gaurSee all my reviews

Vishal Bhardwaj when comes to film making has a vision that is illustrated in his earlier ventures. The music in his movies always stand apart this could also be seen, as a highlight in this undertaking.

Rangoon is set up in the pro-independence India. This movie is different from his earlier Shakespearean outings Haider, Omkara and Maqbool. The Cinematography is excellent. The music is as usual the high point of the movie.

Leading cast is excellent, with Saif again portraying frightening and is reminiscent of langda Tyagi from Omkara.

Shaid deserves an applaud not as superlative performance as in Haider but still top notch.

Kangna again shows why she is considered as a queen of Bollywood . She dances and manages action sequences with ease.

The movie keeps the viewers engrossed throughout. The patriotic song Jan Gan man infuses patriotism when played and beautifully composed by Vishal.

Than what is the issue with this flick? The problem lies in the script of this movie. The last 20 to 25 minutes of the movie struggles and make it tedious for the viewers.

The climax is elongated and gives an unscrupulous taste to the movie. Overall an highly ambitious project from Vishal but the climax could have been glossy and absorbing which has always been a forte of his earlier movies. Also, regulars in Bhardwaj's flicks the likes Irfan Khan and KK Menon are missed. Overall a good watch
