I watched this movie in Noida on 5th Feb with P, his roommates and friends.
I was greatly moved by this movie. I like very few movies and this one falls in that category. The best thing about this movie is that it is very much realistic with storyline which makes you move.
And most of it is based on real story happened in India as far as it has been figured out.
It was BJP led govt – alliance – UPA around year 2000 when the mig planes had started crashing one after other because of their poor maintenance and overage. But govt never took this issue seriously bcoz of which mig accidents kept on happening and pilots kept dying trying to save civilians by not letting planes crash in population. And it was one of them who had this great friend circle. When he died like a soldier, our then defense minister had made this statement that it was all mistake of that notorious pilot putting whole blame on that pilot. This statement jotted down that martyr’s family and friends. They all got united against that minister and protested publicly. They were tortured and beaten on pointing of then home minister. Uptil here, story is point to point true.
Actually, after all the torture, family and friends were not left with any option to rise their voice.
And in this movie, the last alternative has been suggested – those friends get together, kill minister, go to national radio station, accept their crime and awakens whole nation – a generation awakens although those friends were killed finally – another face of this democratic nation. I liked very much this alternative and this cud contribute a lot in making this nation a corrupt less nation. I am sure that whole Indian youth who want to stay in India and are determined to make this nation a clean place wud have liked this option and outcomes of such events wud be visible in next few years. Those ppl who dont respect their martyrs have no right to live in this country.
I liked few dialogues of Rang De Basanti very much. Here they are –
* Zindagi jine ke sirf do hi tarike hai. Ya to jo raha hai use bardasht
karo ya phir jimmedari uthao use badalne ki. (REMEMBER , THERE ARE TWO WAYS TO LEAD UR LIFE…
…EITHER LET THE THINGS HAPPEN AS THEY ARE,… THEN DON’T COMPLAIN
…TAKE UP THE RESPONSIBILITY TO CHANGE THE THINGS, AS THEY SHOULD BE…
* Yeh system ko badal ne jao, toh system tumhe hi badal deta hai
* ek paav past mein, ek paav future mein, isi liye hum apne present par moot raha hai
