Rangoon: All eyes are on Kangana as Saif and Shahid are perfect for their roles
Rangoon is a high octane drama movie set on the battleground of WWII. It is a love triangle portrayed around the life and events of Mary Ann Evans aka Fearless Nadia. She’s the first stunt-woman of Bollywood known for her role in Hunterwali. Vishal Bhardwaj has chosen Kangana Ranaut for the role of Fearless Nadia. She’s Miss Julia in the movie.
The basic plat of the movie is a love triangle and it is made violent by the World War II. It is a bloody war zone and the love flourishes between courage and chivalry. The first angle of the movie is Rustom Rusi Billimoria portrayed by Saif Ali Khan. As a gentleman and also as a peer of the ruling elite of British India, he makes his presence felt with his look and dialogues.
Second angle in the movie is Shahid Kapoor as Nawab Malik. He is earthy and a little dirty. The beautiful maiden Julia falls for Nawab because of his earthy touch and dirty play. The third and the most important angle in the movie is Miss Julia played. She’s beautiful and it the bold avatar of Kangana. She’ll certainly get praises for her role and the dialogue “Bloody Hell”.
Trailer of the movie is recently released and has got much applause from the audiences. The trailer is especially designed to show all the three angles of movie and every actor gets equal screen space in the trailer. The three actors; their roles and likings are clearly visible in the trailer. The movie is set to release but the subject and the background has already created ripples in the industry.
Vishal Bhardwaj has been generous with soundtracks and there are no cutting corners with music and songs. There is little surprise that the movie becomes a musical love drama with a dozen songs that consume 48 minutes of the screen time.
