Rang De Basanti

i have always believed that there r 2 kinds of people :
one who go to their death in screaming
and one who go to their death in silence ;
and then i met the third kind

the movie starts of with this dialogue.. i liked the originality of that.. and the movie continues in the same mode…

i hadnt expected it to be as patriotic as it is.. but this only made me like it more..
the movie begins in the fun mode, the col frens having a thrilling life full of speed and masti, without caring for anything in the world.. and then slowly but surely it makes a transformation into a hard hitting serious mode with a definite message but it retains the light comedy with it.. thruout this u have glimpses of the pre-independence era and our heros then.. those scenes r well timed with the present one.. the climax looks hypothetical.. the film could have done better with a more realistic ending but i think it would not have fared well in the box office then.. but still i liked it the way it ends (its bollywood)..
the fusion of the past and present is excellent, which very few filmmakers can do with such elegance.. the direction is top class… all the actors have done justice to their roles.. Aamir is at his best.. Siddharth i think was the best of the lot.. he has a lot of talent.. i have seen Boys in tamil but i dont quite watch tamil movies.. so i would like him to do more bollywood movies.. Atul Kulkarni, Sharman Joshi and Kunal Kapoor all have done well and their careers will definitely get a boost from this.. the foreign lady does a good job with her role and Soha Ali Khan is sweet and adorable.. Madhavan too has done well in his short role..
and the music is superb… Rehman at his best.. it suits superbly to the situation and theme…. for some tunes u feel like dancing as soon as u hear it..

one of the best movies i have watched… i can watch it many times with as much interest as i had the first time around…
