Rangoon Film Review by Public, Critic: Tarun, Rajeev, Hit or Flop
We will be talking here about Rangoon movie Hit or Flop public review and critic review. Rangoon Wiki is an upcoming film of the Bollywood of 2017 which will get box office on fire. The film is released this Friday. Trailer of the film was looking promising and has gained lots of attention on Youtube. Starcast of Rangoon is somewhat special as it features, Saif Ali Khan, Shahid Kapoor and Bollywood Queen Kangna Ranaut. We have included some wallpapers of all three actors from the film. The film is directed Vishal Bharadwaj and Sajid Nadiadwala. The film makes us remind the period of World War II in which India took part unwillingly. Rangoon is based on during the year 1944 when India was nearing to its independence from the British Raj. The story is basically having a war zone with a musical touch and love story triangle. So lots of masala is included in the film. We are getting somewhat mixed reviews from the public for the film which will ultimately decide that film will be hit or flop.

Rangoon Movie Review
Review By : Taran Adarsh | Rating : 4/5
Frankly, RANGOON is a complex film and it does take time to dissolve oneself wholly in the world of Rusi, Julia and Nawab. Thankfully, there’s much meat in the second half. The myriad emotions [love, jealousy, betrayal], the sequence of events in the second half, the nail-biting finale. On the whole, RANGOON is an epic love saga with strong emotional quotient, riveting second hour and nail-biting finale. Watch it for its layered plot, serpentine twists, proficient storytelling and bravura performances. A content-driven film that’s worth a recommendation!
Review By : Rahit From Hindustan Times | Rating : 2/5
It’s an ambitious film where Bhardwaj wants to merge two worlds: One inspired from Shakespearean tragedies and other motivated by the valiant lovers of the Indian cinema. In the end, neither comes alive on screen – on top of it a messy climax that topples whatever hard work was done building a world of romance.
Review By : Meena Iyer From Times Of India | Rating : 3.5/5
Bhardwaj, whose repertoire includes truly-fine works like Maqbool, Omkara, and Haider delivers, but not entirely. Some frames just hang, some scenes feel tedious. In his attempt to pack in too much on war, love and deceit, the maker ends up with some haphazard division of war scenes versus love games, leaving the viewer muddled.
Review By : Raja Sen From Reddiff | Rating : 4/5
Rangoon haunts in unlikely fashion and, while the director’s most straightforward picture, holds enough of its own marvels to justify multiple viewings. Like a song-and-dance troupe trampling all over a map of Europe to tell their own fractured, misguided jokes, or an old man cosily swilling wine after having faked his own death, Rangoon may be direct, but it is never obvious. As the credits used to say back in the day at the close of a spectacular film, ‘Remember, it’s a Vishal Bhardwaj creation.’
Review By : Shubra Gupta From Indian Express | Rating : 1.5/5
The intention of Vishal Bharadwaj’s ambitiously mounted film is clear: to weave the skeins of love and war in order to make a movie full of throbbing passion and grand statements. But the execution never quite matches up, the gap narrowing in just a few places, in the second half.
Review By : Reshma From BollywoodLife | Rating : 4/5
If you are a Vishal Bhardwaj fan, let us warn you that this might not be his best, but we bet you’ll see another kind of a storyteller here. And yes, he does deliver a movie that is embedded with fine performances from the cast and great visuals by cinematographer Pankaj Kumar and that makes the movie deserving of a watch despite its flaws.
