Rangoon Movie Review- Kangana and Shahid’s Film Fail to Impress

Rangoon movie review

In the Rangoon movie review, you will find how Kangana Ranut makes all her effort to save this Vishal Bhardwaj’s film.

The reason why we say this is primarily due to some oddly written characters which prevents the film in becoming a worth to watch.

Rangoon happens to be one of the most awaiting films in the recent time, but now it seems the film is not worth a watch as per the story line and the presence of some oddly written characters.

After a thorough review, all we can say that the movie seems a royal misfire.

This is quite evident after you start watching the film for some time. As soon as it starts, you soon tend to realize the promise made to make the film more like a heart wrenching historical drama was more like a farce.

From the beginning, you don’t know where you’re actually going while watching the film.

Even the most versatile director Vishal Bharadwaj could not succeed in creating the magic that he usually does. He tries to play hard to the gallery but failed miserably.

First of all, the film’s plot that was set way back in 1930’s doesn’t look ravishing. Well, the movie starts with former action star and producer Saif Ali Khan (Rusi Billimoria) who’s in love with Kangana Ranaut (Miss Julia).

Julia has been inspired from none other than fearless iconic Nadia, who happens to be a top action star, at the time of world war II.

The character of Miss Julia looks something more cynical and exuberant.

She will be remembered for what she is used to call every time, ‘bloody hell’. Other than that you won’t see anything more into it.

Rangoon movie review- The film looks lengthy and ends in pain

Another thing that comes out in the Rangoon movie review is the character of Miss Julia, who looks quite similar to most artists from the west during 1940’s.

At the same time, her feminism also doesn’t look fascinating and liberal and seems to prove the famous adage that most good looking ladies happens to be dumb.

Julia finally gets entrapped with Shahid Kapoor (Nawab Malik) who happens to be the third vertex of the sophisticated love triangle.

Nawab is living the life of a war prisoner during the world war and he has to serve in the Queen’s army.

The character of Nawab Malik looks interesting with all the way rippling muscles and facial expressions.

The plot looks like nothing more than an undefined love story and the full credit goes to Kangana Ranaut for her rock solid performance.

But she can’t do much about the script written poorly. If there is one actor who has done the job to the fullest, it’s her.

Even after placing some burning scenes like where she has to sit on Saif’s thighs.

Eventually, the story plot losses the touch almost instantly. Take a look at the official trailer of the film below to better understand the Rangoon movie review.

In the end, all we can say that Rangoon is quite an ambitious film where two entirely different worlds have been tried to merge.

One is inspired at the time of the older tragedies and the other one of the lovers of Hindi cinema.

The movie is of 167 minutes duration that seems quite painful despite being too long. And also, the film doesn’t end in pleasure either.
