Priyadarshan has been growing so steadily unwatchable these days that you fear the worst when you step into Rangrezz, a remake of the Tamil hit Naadodigal. As the film unspools, each of those fears come true: this is rock-bottom.
Rangrezz is a powerful social drama that brims with the urgency of the young and the audacious. Its ideology may be deeply flawed but perhaps that’s the point the film is trying to make: being clueless; and often misguided while being young is probably the right way towards self-discovery.
Go for it. The rebellious boys' club of Rangrezz is every bit as meritorious as its counterpart in Kai Po Che!.
'Rangrezz', Priyadarshan's remake of a Tamil film, has a story without a convincing purpose, point or plan.
Don’t be fooled by this simplistic story. The screenplay springs up a major surprise in the second half when every thing you watched and believed in is rubbished off.
Rangrezz does its best to enthuse a fresh perspective on the clichéd tale of love, which is commendable. However, the movie fails for its lusterless screenplay and dull stars that leave the audiences famished despite an intriguing plot.
On the whole, RANGREZZ has an impressive first half, but loses focus in the post-interval portions. One definitely expected more!
