A must watch
17 May 2015 | by kichdiSee all my reviews

Rang Rasiya is a movie everybody should watch, the lead played by Randeep Hooda & the talented beauty Nandana Sen. The movie takes you through the late 18th century & early 19th century when religious vandals ruled freedom of speech, art & expression. Raja Ravi Verma championed this cause & eventually won the battle. Rang Rasiya is a masterpiece which is on par with the greatest of world cinema or even better than most. The narration is so smooth, acting is superb, sets dating back over a century is also so immaculate & sex is refreshing to see in Indian cinema. Randeep & Paresh have done superbly well. Nandana looks stunning throughout the movie so is the Scottish girl. Hope there are more movies like this coming which are true to the script.
