Rangoon is captivating drama. I am not particularly a Bhardwaj admirer (Matru ki bijle & 7Khoon were both mediocre films), but each time he collaborated with Shahid, they managed to churn out something that stayed with me. The world of Rangoon is so aesthetically created that I slipped into it right away. The 3 characters put forward are infinitely fascinating. Yes, couple of songs does add to the unwarranted length of the film which creates discomfort. The British Major could have been less caricaturish. But what kept invested is the romance in pre-interval and the repercussions of romance in second half. Kangana is wonderful who blends her part with humour and intensity. Saif has least meatiest role yet towards the second half he makes his presence felt. But it is Shahid who stands tall and knocks it out of the park. Honestly, He is at his creative best in Bhardwaj films and this is 3 times in a row. Rangoon may not be an excellent film, but it is not as far away either. So far, this is the best of the year!!
