Fantastic visuals, good story but a bit slow
24 July 2016 | by indianatureSee all my reviews

I wanted to see Rang Rasiya but never got around to it till today.

This is the story of Raja Ravi Varma the celebrated Indian artist, his work and his life. Randeep Hooda did an admirable job in the lead role.

The period settings, the plot, the costumes, the rampaging Hindutva brigade then and now, it was beautifully done. Nandana Sen looked stunning throughout and enacted her role very well. Paresh Rawal as the astute businessman was excellent as always.

The only flaw was that the film dragged in parts. I was watching a DVD so could fast forward, really this could have been made shorter without losing the essence.
