Another Example of Classy Film Making but There is something less in it at the End.
25 February 2017 | by SAMTHEBESTESTSee all my reviews

RANGOON REVIEW : From the beginning to the End it is a Complete Vishal Bhardwaj Film. You know what i mean if you have seen Highly Critical acclaimed films of Vishal Bhardwaj, he does not make films for entertainment or Commercial success, he makes films only for Quality Cinema Lovers. And Rangoon is another feather in his Cap. Starcast is Brilliant, and Top 3 Leading Actors have done a Brilliant Job. Saif is Rough and Royal, Kangana looks damn beautiful and presents another Outstanding performance for which i except some Nominations for her if not Awards, Shahid Kapoor is Excellent in his Role especially in 2nd half. Film is set in 40's so Locations are really very good and a suitable Cinematography makes it eye pleasing. Writing is Perhaps the best part of film as it is set in 40's and as shown in Trailer and film's poster it has all the engaging elements like Love, War and Deceit. Screenplay is Good, engaged, never makes you feel bore but still looks stretched due to less Comedy and entertainment factor. Editing could have been better but i'm confused which scenes deserves cuts because i never felt bored while watching film. Music is Surprisingly Good, reason is, there is Not a single Chartbuster or not even a Hit song in film and i felt bored when i watched video songs promos and listen mp3 but in a Film all songs are situational, meaningful so does gripped. Dialogues are Hilarious at some stages, meaningful and classy in some scenes. Approx 10%Dialogues are in English which only Highly Educated Saifians can understand, not for Masala Film lovers. Direction is Top Class, i mean if you notice carefully then almost every frame of film gives hints of Classy Film Making. Climax was Patriotic and suitable but Shahid and Kangana's death scenes looks animated and childish. A better climax would have made this film a Classic like previous films of Bhardwaj but Rangoon clearly fell short to that Tag. Overall it is a Very Good Film but i recommend this film to only and only Classes Audience. It is not a Massy film so masses should stay away from it, it is not a Family Entertainer so Family audience should not even think to watch it. If you loved Classics like Omkara and Haider then you will definitely like Rangoon but just don't expect a same kind of Quality cause Rangoon has its own Magic. I'm going with 7/10 stars, giving it a Verdict that It is a Film that keeps you hooked from the beginning till the End, looks like another Classic from Bhardwaj but slightly disappoints you in Climax.
