Rangoon Movie Review: Kangana Ranaut, Shaihd Kapoor and Saif Ali Khan's film is a sweeping tale of love, jealousy and valour
Missing it will not be the best decision of your life.
The film tackles the sombre theme of political corruption and capitalist greed against the backdrop of a small Haryana village fighting to save its arable land.

Vishal Bhardwaj said: "I have seen A Death in the Gunj and I would safely say that Konkana turned out to be a better director than actor"

"Rangoon's failure was heart-breaking. I felt the film's failure was targeted at me," said Kangana. Vishal Bhardwaj's film released in February
Saif Ali Khan, whose film Rangoon hit the theatres on Friday, said that he finds the negative roles of director Vishal Bhardwaj quite fascinating. Saif has worked with Mr Bhardwaj in Omkara, where he played Langda Tyagi.
Shahid Kapoor plays one of the three central characters in Vishal Bhardwaj's Rangoon says the director hopes his actors will "submerge themselves into the world he created."
Shahid Kapoor said that of the three times he has worked with Vishal Bhardwaj, there was only one time when he could not complete the shooting schedule. It was during the shooting of Rangoon.
Actress Kangana Ranaut has been zeroed in as the brand ambassador for Melange by Lifestyle, which was previously endorsed by Deepika Padukone. Deepika is busy filming for her Hollywood debut with Vin Diesel while Kangana too is filming for Vishal Bhardwaj's Rangoon.
