The Vigil Idiot: Rangrezz

March 25, 2013 8:09 am by

Priyadarshan’s Rangrezz is the Hindi remake of the 2009 Tamil film Naadodigal. This is, in fact, the fifth separate remake of the movie after Telugu, Kannada, Malayalam and Bengali versions. You would think that after having those many tries at the script, they would have fixed some of the kinks. Well, you would think wrong! Because this movie starring Jackky Bhagnani (as Rishi), produced, of course, by his father Vashu Bhagnani, is a film that can’t be saved even by the random inclusion of a South Korean song that’s got over a billion YouTube hits!

    Though there are clearly some loop holes and i have not seen the Hindi version,
    I can assure you that the movie in Tamil is worth its fame and since the movie has been set up in a Tamil environment, it must have been hard to duplicate it with the same element of righteousness…..
