Vishal Bhardwaj’s Rangoon has been the talk of the town ever since the first intense trailer of the film was out. Rangoon starring Kangana Ranaut, Saif Ali Khan and Shahid Kapoor in the lead roles, is set in the year 1944 of World War II. The film is a period drama and it’s said to be Bhardwaj’s masterpiece, considering the kind of time it has taken to make this film. Rangoon is all set to release this Friday on February 24 and here are 5 reasons why this film is a must watch.
The backdrop: Rangoon is based on a backdrop of Second World War, which will give you a major feel of 40’s era. Making a period film is surely not easy as it requires lots of research to bring out the authenticity in the movie. Well, going by the intense trailer and promos of Rangoon, it seems, director Vishal Bhardwaj has put his heart and soul in it. The backdrop of World War 2 has already raised the curiosity among the masses.
Kangana Ranaut as Julia: The first look of Kangana Ranaut as fearless Julia immediately left us wanting to know more about the film. The Queen actress will be playing a very intense and never played the character for the first time. Her role is said to be loosely based on actress-stunt woman Fearless Nadia. It remains to see if Kangana’s role can overshadow Saif Ali Khan and Shahid Kapoor in the film.
The captain of the ship-Vishal Bhardwaj: It won’t be wrong to say that Vishal brings the best out of Shahid. Their last two collaborations Kaminey and Haider were a smashing hit and that has left the audience waiting for Rangoon. Apart from scripting and direction, Bhardwaj has also composed the music for his film.
An unusual love angle: Beside action, Rangoon is also high on romance. Kangana will be seen romancing both Shahid Kapoor and Saif Ali Khan. If you have watched the trailer, it’s quite evident that there is an apparent love triangle between the trio. It will be interesting to watch who wins Kangana’s heart in the end.
Saif Ali Khan and Shahid Kapoor together for the first time: Rangoon has been the talk of the town due to its casting. The film will witness Shahid and Saif sharing the same screen space for the first time. Nobody ever thought that Saif and Sasha would do a film together ever but Vishal Bhardwaj made this possible.
