I had watched RDB few weeks back and i must say it's one of the best contemporary movies i have seen.It triggers some of sensitive corners of the heart and mind of today's generation.
And this movie is also proving that Hindi movies can have great impact on Indian citizens in good and in bad ways, both:)
After the release of this movie, people in Delhi have raised there voice against the Jessica Lal murder case exactly in the Rang De basanti style by lighting candle in front of India Gate:)
And seems while acting in this movie even the actors have got energized:). These days we see Aamir and the entire gang raising voice againt the national issues like Naramada case more strongly (though ignorantly)
These are all OK as long as people are picking up the good aspects of the movie and copying it.But...
But yesterday, the police had lathi charged the young doctors who were silently protesting for a cause:S
This lathi charge was also in the Rang De basanti style. Oh boy!:S:S
It's fine if people get influenced by a movie to do heroic acts, but people are following the movie even for villaneous acts:S That's sad
One of the channels had asked people's opinion on the Police behaviour , and few of them had stated that 'We were reminded of Jalianwala Bagh massacre by seeing the police beating the doctors'
Now commmmmmon guys, tell the truth. Were you reminded of Jalianwala bagh of 1919, or Jalianwala bagh of Rang de basanti;)
Atleast i was reminded of the Jalianwala Bagh of RDG only:), where the director compares the General Dyre of those Days and politicians of these days in the same weighing balance.
Oops, that doens't mean i am trying to say Arjun singh is like General Dyre;)
AAh..this movie has silently raised lot of stroms,and is really trying to the awaken the nation.And amidst all this look who is calmly and quietly doing his job: The director of the movie Rakesh Omprakash Mehra;)
He is now preparing silently for his next venture which he says is a comedy
Rakesh Mehar ji, if you continue like this you will become the Mahatma Gandhi of 21st century;) The only difference is he used his khadi rolls and you are using your film rolls. Just kidding:)
But then i think the director is following exactly what he has tried to ultimately convey in his movie
' Change the society, by being a part of the society, not outside it'. Else you would get killed like the RDB heroes'
