Biopic has become a safe option in Bollywood as audience is curious to know about all the special people whose life was very interesting. Rang Rasiya is an altogether different case as it was ready six years back and after a long struggle released at the right time when audience is accepting meaningful cinema in Bollywood. All credit for Rang Rasiya goes to Ketan Mehta for telling a story of someone, all Indians should be aware about. Rang Rasiya is a story of the painter aho first painted Hindu Gods. This one liner is enough to pull the audience to the theaters.
One more factor that Rang Rasiya works for is Randeep Hooda. Undoubtedly one of the best performance of his career. Its difficult to find Randeep, what you see on screen is Ravi Verma. His performance is flawless. Difficult to select a particular scene where he has performed the best. Nandana Sen is beautiful yet delivers a powerful performance, reason being the strong character. She makes you fall in love with her beautiful performance. The other cast of the film which includes Paressh Rawal, Ashish Vidyarthi, Sachin Khedekar, Vikram Gokhale etc have played their parts well. Performance wise Rang Rasiya deserves a double thumbs up. Ketan Mehta has done a fabulous job. He takes you in the colourful world of Raja Ravi Verma that fascinates you for 130 minutes. Editing of the film was pitch perfect. Production design of the film was very good. Music was melodious especially the title track which plays in the background quite often.
Rang Rasiya is a story not to be missed. Ketan Mehta should be appreciated for telling this story beautifully. Randeep Hooda is the star of this film. This one is strongly recommended.
