Verdict: Kangana Ranaut shines in this tale of love and war. Vishal Bhardwaj is counted among the most underrated directors of Bollywood. He has come up with critically-acclaimed movies like Maqbool, Kaminey and Haider but the praises rarely ever translated into record-breaking collections. However, this has hardly changed the way Bhardwaj goes about making his []... ...Read full review
A sweeping tale of love, jealousy and valour located ambitiously, and largely effectively, at a fictional intersection of war, history and generic movie conventions, Rangoon employs a lush and evocative colour palette to recreate an era of strife and rebellion. It is buoyed by superbly modulated performances from the three leads as well as the members of the supporting cast.

The film is a war-romance set in pre-independent India. As is known, there were differing strands in the movement. Mahatma Gandhi adopted ahimsa to get freedom; Subhash Chandra Bose was the force behind the Indian National Army that got on the front foot to boot the enemy out. Even as this strife played out, Julia (Kangana), the daredevil actress of the 40`s ruled hearts. Closer home, her married producer Russi Billimoria (Saif) is besotted with her and at the border, Jamadar Nawab Malik (Shahid) loves her to death. ...Read full review
Having exorcised the great, dark tragedies, Vishal Bhardwaj seems to be in a jolly good mood. From his latest outing it looks like hes in a blissful state of postpartum contentedness, in the mood to frolic, have some fun, be silly and, well, a bit lame. ...Read full review
