Rang De Basanti: Promo Watch

By Gaurav Malani (IndiaFM News Bureau), November 25, 2005 - 06:14 IST

Rang De Basanti. What is the first thing that strikes your mind when you come across a movie with such a title? That it's a historical? Obviously with a title that is immortalized as the catchline of freedom fighter Bhagat Singh anybody will think likewise. But hold on. This one isn't any period drama. On the contrary it's set in contemporary times and has a very modern outlook and a youthful charm to it.

As the trailer of Rang De Basanti opens, some color literally flows in as graffiti is spray painted on walls of dilapidated ancient monuments in Delhi. 'This January… a generation awakens' says the tagline as it introduces its lead star cast starting with Aamir Khan who plays the central character. In a wayward youthful hairdo (a pleasant change after the long locks of Mangal Pandey) and clad in jeans and leather jackets, it's a treat to watch Aamir Khan get back into the young-at-heart Dil Chahta Hai mode.

Other actors who complete his gang of five include Kunal Kapoor (who made his debut in Meenaxi opposite Tabu) Sharman Joshi, the actor with an inborn flair for comic timing Siddharth (South star who played Vivek Oberoi's role in the Tamil version of Yuva) and R.Madhavan who along with Soha Ali Khan forms the only couple in the gang. Well, the rebel has arrived. There essentially is a humor element and light-hearted treatment to this thought-provoking socially relevant film.

Daler Mehendi grabs your attention with his spirited rendition of the title track of Rang De Basanti in the background. A.R.Rehman comes up with one of his most peppy compositions for this number and while his music usually takes time to grow on you, this one is of the instantly catchy varieties. Expect more magic from the maestro in this album.

The promo turns more vibrant and visually appealing capturing festivals and celebrations, bhangras and bikes in the true-blue spirit of Delhi. The concluding point of the trailer is one of the better captured frames with the boys running in fields and waving off their shirts to a plane talking off from the runway. The aerial shot-taking by cinematographer Binod Pradhan is simply spellbinding.

Rang De Basanti is an avant-garde story of a young British girl (played by English actress Alice Patten) who wants to make a documentary based on the diary of her grandfather, a soldier of the Raj in the 1920's. When the BBC refuses her funding, she comes to India and forms her own team comprising of students from Delhi University (headed by Aamir Khan), who identify with the audacity and fervor of their forefathers.

Directed by Rakyesh Omprakash Mehra, Rang De Basanti is a UTV production and is slated for a January release.

Musicians band together for earthquake charity single
7th November, 2005
Artists across the Asian music industry have joined hands for one of the largest collaborations of its kind, aimed at raising money for charities in South Asia.

AR Rahman and Mukhtar Sahota


Sneha Mistri

The project, which started off in January in response to the Tsunami in Asia, was given further impetus by the recent earthquake in Kashmir.

It has culminated in a CD due to be released next week titled 'We can Make it Better'.

A total of seventeen artists have come together for the single. The track is produced by Mukhtar Sahota, with string arrangements by AR Rahman.

Others artists include Sukhwinder Singh, Jaspinder Narula, Shaan, Hans Raj Hans, UK Apache, Am'nico, Dhami (Heera), Channi (Alaap), Djinn, Mistri, E=MC, Shahin Badar, Sumeet, Surinder Sandhu ( sarangi ), and Shahbaz Khan ( tabla ).

Mukhtar Sahota said: "The idea behind the track was to take a similar approach as to the Band Aid single but with Asian artists from around the world. Asian music is so diverse and I felt that if we can bring different music genres, from Eastern and Western continents together, we can make a difference and at the same time the recording could be a history in the making."

Money from the single will go to Save the Children in India and Islamic Relief.

Singer Sneha Mistri said: "After seeing the images on TV I just felt lost and helpless with all the suffering going on. So when I was approached to be part of this, I felt a sense of relief to be able to do something.

"I hope that we can make a difference, however small because we will always have more then those people directly affected in both tragedies."

The project is the result of a collaboration between InternalMusic, Streetlife productions and Realtone Records. The video for the single, featuring all the artists, was shot in 3 locations: the UK, India and Canada earlier this year and made over a 4 week period.

Organisers say all artists gave their time free of charge and the money raised will be donated to the charities excluding any distribution and retail costs that may apply.

The single is due for release on Friday 11th November from HMV and Asian music outlets.
