When i came out of the theatre i just knew i had to write this....
My first reaction...It was definately much better than Mangal Pandey !!
I dont think there is any similarity between Rang de and DCH as i read somewhere, apart from the fact that its about friends and the happy n gloomy bit... pre and post intermission. While DCh had more urban look.. Rang de is more of a feel of delhi... the collge feel throughout.. though its a seperate issue that they have made Indian Habitat Centre into the Delhi University campus....
U will always come across a haryanvi jat - sukhi, a hard core punju turned hep.... Daljeet urf Dj, a subtle muslim - aslam, a rich not flambouyant but silent.... karan, a tomboyish... yet girly - sonia
Look around... you will find many of these characters in your own friend circle.... atleast in Delhi you will !!
The dialogues definately won accolades...Movie has all the ingredients for a hit
it has humour ...." tu ni sudharna... aye dudh dena band kar degi"... kiron kher reffering to the cow...being tortured by amir khan by his dialogues...lol
fun ...." sue kar mere mann ko kiya tune kya isara"
reality ...." college ke gate ke is paar hum duniya ko nachate hai aur us paar duniya hume... tum lak lak tum tum lak lak" amir to sue
" sabka the end hota hai.. bas the end ka style different hota hai"
And ofcourse ...Profanity which has been used in a subdued yet open way....from the start of the movie with " teri ma ki ankh" and goes on with the subtle use of " behn di takki" every now and then.
My fav character definately was sukhi.. the haryanvi jat...
"aslam ki gali... khali balli khalli balli khalli balli, hum to hai talli talli, na bhula mein apne yaar ki galli... lamba mera yaar choti uski galli"
And the one that really moved me was Karan... i guess its been played by sidharth... with a lot of ease... n attitude i must say !! (loved him in the movie !!)
Fav scene... Madhavan's cremation !!
Music rocked !! That is how i can just try to describe it...I loved it when they tried to show a scene from past... Amir as a freedom fighter running away from police.. on a bike and the background score was quite contemprory !!
It was this mix n match of old new... dat kepes u glued to the movie till the end !!
All in all ...awesome movie...sound track is amazing and the picturisation is fantastic.
A sure must watch !!
