rang de... revisited

Was able to watch a good program on B4U Music. Cinematic, it was about Rang De Basanti the film that awakens a generation and how things happened. All were there - from the Producer, to the director, to the stars, to the cameraman, to the script writer, lyricist except for the Boss - A R Rahman. They were talking abt how things turned up, how AK accepted the script, What Soha felt when doing a particular screen, What the script writer wrote for Laxman Pandey- when he faces Aslam in the hospital, etcetera etcetera.

Few interesting things from that show.

  1. How Ziddi Ziddi... Armaa came up in the song Khalbali - Prasoon and ARR were thinking of putting in an apt word there during the compositions and Boss was not happy with the going. Then Prasoon just said - its Ziddi Ziddi Rahmaan - They need a little time to put in Ziddi Ziddi... Armaa
  2. All the songs were compsed beautifully, but Aamir liked Roobaroo. That was the real one which touched him coz it bought in the meaning at the right time. Relieved after Mission Completion. Kitchan also felt the same.
  3. Atul Kulkarni agreed with me. He also felt that no one could write a script where a politician leaves away his idealogies to tell Sorry to his political or idealogical rival. His most difficult and favorite scene was the one where Laxman Pandey accepts Aslam. "It could have been expressed in two pages of dialogues. But Rakeysh just wrote a 'Sorry'" said Atul

PS: There was movie in Malayalam a couple of years ago called "4 The people" in which 4 college students fight against corruption by either killing the corrupt person or causing him some harm. They hosted a sight for the public to receive complaints and they will execute the job in anonymity. In the end they vanish into the thin air.

PPS: Smelling something somewhere. I know Kitchan won't agree with me. But Still Worth a Think :). Saying all these I don't take any credit away from the crew of RDB. Its a wonderful movie. Go Watch It.

the idea of the common man fighting against the system is as old as the system. You cant give 4 the people credit for that. RDB's highgligt was the combining of the past and the present.

Are the contributions restricted to the 4 people, or to a certain Indian too? Yes - its just the plot - Not the effort in coming with this.

I guess, this has become a trend in film industry. Even the film 'Anniyan' reminded me of 4 the People, though it is picturized in an entirely different way.
