AHAAA <3 Whatever happened to the RGV who used to make gems, treasure chests, diamonds like Rangeela? This movie is totally my kind of movie. The story, the acting, the cast, the MUSIC, the 90s-ness, it gets everrrything right!
Urmila Matondkar is HOT. like, HOTHOTHOTHOT, even teetering to bother saying no homo. She is such a f**kin sex bomb in this movie, and her amazing figure, the way she dances, her facial expressions, her hairrr, she completeeetly works it. Like, never in a better way have I seen a woman work her sex appeal so up to her command. I believe RGV had said that he wouldn't have made Rangeela if he hadn't found Urmila, and I get why he says that. NO ONE else could've done the role of Mili like she did =)
AMIR KHAN is such a massive teddy bearrr. LOVED him! Love his adorable tapori, love his fug outfits, love how just one silly girl makes him lose all his gangstery badassery. He really outshone the entire set in some key scenes, like when Jacky Shroff accidentally calls him Raju or something, and he says "Munna.. it's Munna", his vulnerability is at that scene was sooo visible. His hurt, his joy and excitement at being with Mili, his friendship with Pakya, its just so real and so convincing.
Gotta give a very big applause to the choreographer, who I believe is Saroj Khan. AMAZING dance sequences in all the dance-based songs, super special mention to Ho Ja Rangeela Re and Mangta Hain Kya. Urmila had already proven herself a great dancer, but Amir was great as well. and the way Mangta Hain Kya is picturised is gorgeousss. Dramatic dance moves, dramatic song, full on cinematic irresistible indulgence <3
and obviously, the best part for me about Rangeela is the music, and the background score. Don't really care bout how annoying I am about A.R. Rahman, but this score just reminds me why I love his work so much. Literally, each and every song is a gem to me. The innovation he brought to the music industry, the details he gives to beats as well as creating breathtaking melody, and the awesomely captivating background score are things that just make me a crazier fan.
I sooo wish the 90s AR Rahman can be reborn, don't know what I'd give to be able to experience it.
SO MUCH love for this movie <3
