|Rangrezz is one who breathes colours in someoneís life and
Priyadarshanís Rangrezz is not only colourful in execution but
delivers a powerful social message. But lack of stars may hinder its
reach to the masses.
Three diaper friends Rishi, Vinu and Pakkya are on the verge of
making something big in their lives. Rishi has a dream of marrying
Megha by getting a government Job, Vinu has a dream of having his own
computer institute while Pakkya wants to settle abroad due to his
family issues. All three friends while weaving threads to make their
dreams come true, Rishiís childhood friend Joy comes across as an
invisible sword to murder their dreams. Rishi for the sake of
friendship and in the wake of young blood, decides to do what most
youngsters do for the sake of love and friendship. And the results?
You need to see the movie.
Rangrezz is not a movie of regular Bollywood genre neither it could
be put in the category of Dabangg, Singham or Rowdy Rathore. It is a
masala flick indeed but with the power of a powerful plot, Santosh
Sivanís extraordinary cinematography, great background score, superb
music, solid performances and great direction by Priyadarshan.
Rangrezz may not gel with the lovebirds of the city so easily as it
will hit hard on their face. The line between Love and lust defined by
the power of trust and few people tend to name lust as love. This may
not be an easy watch for ladies, kids and few critics but still you
are recommended to watch the same. Everything in life is not goodie-
goodie as one has to be strong enough to face the realism; fragrance
of love cannot be smelt until you pass through thorns.
Priyadarshan, the director, needs no introduction and the movies on
this subject has been made five times since 2009 when it was first
released in Tamil. Since Rangrezz is a remake of Naadodigal, the
director has not tried to unnecessarily play with the original plot
rather keep it the same and it looks beautiful with Sivanís magical
cinematography and pleasing music by Sundar C Babu. Also to be
credited, the stunt director as the fight sequence and stunts have a
beauty of realism unlike unrealistic stunts of Dabangg, Singham and
Vijay Verma as Pakkya is outstanding and Lushin Dubey as Joyís
mother & the UP minister is a delight to watch. After years, I have
seen a lady like her with such charisma. Amitosh Nagpal as Winu is
decent and Pankaj Tripathi as the minister is powerful. Rangrezz has
many characters like Rishiís grandma, his sister, father, dhabewala ,
father-in-law and Priya Anand as Megha. All characters have done their
roles with heart. Now, about Jackky Bhagnani. Forget his Gangnam style
video. This guy has improved in leaps and bounds since FALTU and
Priyadarshan should be credited for that. Itís difficult to carry such
a bold and powerful subject but he manages to deliver it nicely.
Rangrezz is colorful, vibrant and powerful. It has a strong
message. It also portrays love and its importance in various
relationships. Overall, itís a bouquet of various flowers but roses
have thorns. Itís on you what you would like to pick.
