Ratings:2.5/5 Review By:Rajeev MasandSite:CNN News 18
In the end, the film is neither entirely satisfying as a compelling romance, nor as a stirring patriotic drama about the role of the Indian National Army in India’s freedom struggle. Vishal makes an ambitious attempt to deliver a sweeping epic, but on a scale of Saat Khoon Maaf to Maqbool, this one sits somewhere in between. I’m going with two and a half out of five.

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!

Rangoon is a re-imagination of history but the writing is inconsistent. In places, the transitions are abrupt and clumsy. So Rangoon is as flawed as it is fabulous. It’s over-stretched and over-wrought. Go in knowing that it is a polarizing film and that you are as likely to dislike it as you are to enjoy it. And yet, if you miss it, you miss a chance to immerse yourself into the epic imagination of VB.

On the whole, Rangoon is entertaining but it is also too long, boring in parts and more class-appealing than mass-oriented. It will, therefore, do well in select multiplexes in some big cities, but this will not at all be enough to recover the huge investment in the film even after revenues from non-theatrical sources are accounted for. In the final tally, the film will entail heavy losses to the distributors concerned.

Rangoon suffers a fair bit on account of its marathon, energy-sapping length and its disappointingly facile climax. But nothing can undermine its power as a risky but worthwhile cinematic idea that has been executed with flair and gumption. Rangoon is wholeheartedly recommended but with a rider: it isn't a stroll in the park because it demands patience and concentration. It definitely helps that the cinematography (by Pankaj Kumar) is so lustrous that you simply cannot take your eyes off the screen.

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.

Ratings:1.5/5 Review By:Shubhra Gupta Site:Indian Express
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.

Ratings:2/5 Review By:Rohit Site:Hindustan Times
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.

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.

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.'

Rangoon is no masterpiece. It fails to rise above Vishal’s imagination of cinema. Lengthy and forced, it is a confused war-love-freedom struggle drama. Rangoon has grandeur but is a lost cause thanks to its multiple threads. Kangana and Shahid, leave a mark with their characters but do not help the film rise above its inconsistencies. A 2/5 for this.

    1. Rangoon Movie Review- The name of the Movie should not be Rangoon it should be name as Cartoon becuz while watching cartoon you don't get emotional & same with this Movie,Vishal Bhardwaj Movies are For Class Audience but sometimes the chai-pakore tastes better than five star hotels appetizers,so Mass Appeal counts as well,Movie has Highly stretched ,very slow pace screenplay doesn't engage the Audience at all also the War background & love woven isn't shown properly so both sides are weak also the relation between the trio ,shahid,kanagana & saif lacks the emotional quotience which fails to connect with the Audience & then till the climax comes ,Audience is completely out of the Movie,Only reason to watch if You are a Fan of Shahid,Kangana & Saif, Box Office Collection-25-30 Crore,Result-Flop

    1. Hii.. Mr suresh ,why there such a kind of taboo with a name or individual named Khan ..the thing is if people accepts Rangoon,it will become a hit, but then whom will you give entire credit? .. only to kangana?..then what about vishalji and her other star coactors ..also the excellence of all hod's n their team involved ...especially cinematography n a great dop Pankaj Kumar n his team , sound Dept n etc ..n ya kangana is a brilliant performer , she is of her own kind , unique ... let her be like that ..why unnecessarily draw her into disoriented comparison

  6. Super Bakwas movie! all comments and reviews have been paid.VBJ makes movies only for people who can't understand anything and those who can't understand it, say good things because they are confused. Please save your money and avoid this rubbish product from this team of flop artists.

  15. रंगून:
    ‘इस’ इश्क़ और जंग में सब कुछ जायज़ नहीं! [3/5]

    विशाल भारद्वाज की नई-नवेली फिल्म ‘रंगून’ को अमेरिकी क्लासिक ‘कासाब्लांका’ से जोड़ के देखना एक दर्शक के तौर पर शायद आपकी सबसे बड़ी भूल होगी. हालाँकि इसकी पटकथा में कहने को बहुत सारे ऐसे पहलू हैं, जो ‘रंगून’ को ‘कासाब्लांका’ जैसा दिखाने-बताने की होड़ में बेसुध लगे रहते हैं. विश्व-युद्ध की पृष्ठभूमि में प्रेम-त्रिकोण की पेचीदगी उनमें से सबसे ज्यादा करीब भी है, सबसे ज्यादा कामयाब भी. फिर भी कमोबेश, यह विशाल भारद्वाज की औसत फिल्मों (सात खून माफ़, मटरू की बिजली का मंडोला) की लिस्ट में ही एक बड़ा इजाफा करने तक सीमित रह पाती है.

    ‘रंगून’ आज़ादी से पहले के भारत का इतिहास टटोलने और उसे दुबारा परदे पर परोसने तक तो बहुत जोश-ख़रोश दिखाती है, पर जब बात दर्शकों के सामने अपने किरदारों के दिल चीर कर रख देने की आती है, तो भारद्वाज बड़ी बेचारगी और मासूमियत से कहानी के साथ घालमेल करने में जुट जाते हैं. गनीमत है कि फिल्म में रंगीली, नशीली, कंटीली कंगना, और पंकज कुमार की दिलकश सिनेमेटोग्राफी एक फ्रेम के लिए भी अपनी जगह, अपनी जिम्मेदारी, अपनी जवाबदेही नहीं छोड़ते!

    अपने स्टंट खुद करने में माहिर जूलिया (कंगना रानौत) ’40 के दशक की सबसे मशहूर फ़िल्मी सितारा है, साथ ही कभी मूक फिल्मों के ‘एक्शन-स्टार’ रहे रूसी बिलिमोरिया (सैफ अली खान) के दिल का चैन-सुकून भी. रूसी ने ही जूलिया को फुटपाथ से उठा कर आसमान की बुलंदियों तक पहुँचाया है. दोनों के रिश्ते में जमादार नवाब मलिक (शाहिद कपूर) का आना तब होता है, जब जूलिया को बर्मा में अँगरेज़ फौज के सामने प्रोग्राम करने के लिए तलब किया जाता है. मलिक और जूलिया में बढ़ती नजदीकियों के अलावा, देश में आज़ाद हिन्द फौज की सरगर्मियां भी बढ़ने लगी हैं. देशभक्ति जब हवाओं में घुल कर साँसों में आग फूंक रही हो, प्यार कैसे अछूता रह पायेगा? चेहरों पे चढ़े मुखौटे टूटने लगे हैं. इश्क अपनी ज़द, अपनी हद से पार जाने को मचल रहा है.

    ‘रंगून’ एक बड़े कैनवास की फिल्म होने का सारा दम-ख़म रखती है. प्रोडक्शन-डिजाईन में छोटी से छोटी बारीकियों की बात हो (फिल्म स्टॉक के ज़माने में रील पर पेन से मार्क करना, मुंबई के पुराने इरोस थिएटर का सेट), या बेहतरीन कैमरावर्क के जरिये फिल्म को ‘क्लासिक’ लुक देने का माद्दा; ‘रंगून’ कहीं से भी कमज़ोर या लचर नहीं दिखती. फिल्म में विशाल भारद्वाज का चिर-परिचित राजनीतिक व्यंग/कटाक्ष भी कम ही सही, पर असरदार तरीके से दिख तो जाता ही है. किरदारों को दिलचस्प बनाने की रटी-रटाई कवायद यहाँ भी साफ़ झलकती है. जूलिया अगर ‘फियरलेस नाडिया’ से अपने ताव, तौर-तरीके अपनाती है, तो वहीँ एक अँगरेज़ जनरल उर्दू शेर-ओ-शायरी का मुरीद निकल जाता है.

    अभिनय में कंगना सबसे काबिल बनकर उभरती हैं. आपको याद भी नहीं होगा, पिछली बार कब कोई महिला किरदार परदे पर इतनी सशक्त, जांबाज़, दिलेर और उतनी ही मखमली और मजबूर भी लगी हो! शाहिद की अदाकारी आपको ‘हैदर’ की तरह हैरान तो नहीं करती, पर पूरी तरह मंजी हुई लगती है और कहीं भी परेशान नहीं करती. अपने शाहाना अंदाज़ से, सैफ परदे पर मशहूर हॉलीवुड अभिनेता क्लार्क गेबल की याद दिला जाते हैं. शायरी-पसंद ब्रिटिश आर्मी जनरल की भूमिका में रिचर्ड मैकेब गुदगुदाते रहते हैं.

    इतने सब के बावजूद, ‘रंगून’ एक ही फिल्म में कई फिल्में ठूंसी हुई लगती है. जूलिया अपने आप में एक मुकम्मल कहानी का इल्म कराती है. काश, हम उसे और जान पाते! रूसी-जूलिया-मलिक का इश्किया सफ़र भी ज्यादा वक़्त मांगता है. और अंत में; एक बेहद काबिल वॉर-फिल्म, जिसकी सिर्फ झलक ही आपको पूरी फिल्म में देखने मिलती है, और आप मन मसोस के रह जाते हैं कि बॉलीवुड को उसका ‘सेविंग प्राइवेट रायन’ मिलना अभी दूर लगता है. इश्क़ और जंग की ‘इस’ कहानी में सब कुछ जायज़ तो नहीं है, पर 2 घंटे 50 मिनट की इस महत्वाकांक्षी फिल्म में बहुत कुछ देखने और सराहने लायक है. [3/5]

  16. Except the climax I enjoyed the movie. A classy work of cinema.
    Cinematography is the hero here. Songs and choreography are good. Super performance.
    Frankly last half an hour was like 80's masala potboiler.
    Still can't look away from the scene because of the artists involved on the scene.
    Problem is writing is inconsistent.
    Still people should try it once at least for kangana, saif, shahid's mindboggling award Worthy performance.

  19. Rangoon is a masterpiece and I have no regret for watching it because it is a movie for intelligent audience. And if someone doesn't understand an intelligent stuff they have no rights to criticize some really good works.
    The movie is really incredible especially Kangana Ranaut. You can't take eyes out of her. Her performance is mesmerizing. I think most of the audience just like senseless movies. Guys if you are thinking of watching this movie then go for it. We should promote good works in every fields.
    THIS IS REALLY AN INCREDIBLE MOVIE ESPECIALLY KANGANA.
