While the triangular love story between the producer, an actress and an army man moves in an exciting path, there comes a villain named Major General David Harding. He doesn’t like Indians and he is a sadist, who laughs at the victims, who fall prey to his gun shots. With whom Julia’s life starts? What is the part of Major General David Harding? Watch the film in theaters.
Shahid is always best in his romance and action. Kangana, who is popular for her casual performance had done justice to the role as actress Julia. Richard McCabe needs a special mention here for his villainy looks and body language.
The triangular love story has been handled pretty well by Vishal. However, he makes us feel that he lost his concentration in the war sequences. The costume planning for a periodic film needs much analysis and focus. It is one among the significant efforts made by the team.
What’s Not There?
On the whole, Rangoon, the triangular love story with the war background could be watched once.
