SYNOPSIS
Raag Desh is a periodic drama based on the Indian National Army set up by Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose and the war to liberate India that was fought on the shores of the Irrawaddy in Burma. The British called the soldiers of the INA renegades and Japanese stooges and a trial was held at the Red Fort in Delhi that was called the Red Fort trials of 1945. Raag Desh brings to life that epic trial that paved the way for India's Freedom and those meteoric times.
Verdict: A gritty portrayal of India`s freedom struggle. India was under the British rule for years and while many events about the country's Independence have made it to the big screen, some of them are still unheard of. Raag Desh, which is helmed by critically-acclaimed director Tigmanshu Dhulia, brings to life the Red Fort trials []... ...Read full review
A heavy dose of patriotism that is totally worth your time. ...Read full review
Had the screenplay been freed of its half-hearted side-tracks, it would have made for great infotainment. The movie is only half of that word now. ...Read full review
Raag Desh blends details drawn from extensive research and some amount of fiction to rustle up a narrative that has enough drama to keep the audience engaged through its run time of two and a quarter hours. It isn`t quite your average edge-of-the-seat thriller, but it abounds in scenes that hit home with their inherent intensity and emotional resonance. ...Read full review
Overall, Raag Desh is not a superlative film, particularly because of its treatment, editing and lack of a novel story. But what it excels at is brushing the dust off a forgotten chapter of the history textbooks in a way that we can revisit it, with equal amounts of pride and gratitude. ...Read full review
Thumbs up for bringing in front the lesser-known story from Netaji`s forgotten books, thumbs down for not making it engaging enough. Also, in the end, it does make you feel the air of current political scenario. Why only during the saffronisation of the country, one thought of bringing the `true nationalist` story at the front? A story which in a very subtle way, points finger at the functioning of Indian National Congress right from the fall of British era. Propaganda much? Well, it`s for the audience to find out. ...Read full review
On the whole, Raag Desh is an average film with an untold factual story. The film could have been much better plus in the era of commercial films, Raag Desh is a niche in its own genre. If you are still patriotic to watch such a film in 2017, then Raag Desh isn`t a bad watch. ...Read full review
Make no mistake, this is no A Few Good Men, but it is surely a very well researched tale of unsung heroes we may not even be aware of. Bollywood keeps making films on the likes of Mahatma Gandhi or Bhagat Singh, but its high time we give due credit and respect to the likes of Shah Nawaz Khan, Prem Sahgal, Gurbaksh Singh Dhillon and various others. ...Read full review
Tigmanshu Dhulia`s directed film, Raag Desh has lofty ambition, but the stagey treatment lets it down. The definitive INA film is still to be made. The war scenes are plentiful but you can`t help seeing the clunkiness. The film stars Mohit Marwah, Amit Sadh, Kunal Kapoor. ...Read full review
Raag Desh is an example of how poor editing can absolutely ruin a film. Abrupt cuts here and there make the film appear like a documentary. ...Read full review
