ABOUT THE MOVIE :
Basic Concept:
Some people say history is boring. But sometimes walking through the
lanes of the past can be enjoyable and gratifying. Rang De Basanti"
is atypical and awe-inspiring. It is not a patriotic film that bores
you by glorifying the past.

It meticulously draws a line between the past and the present, both
of which move in parallel lines. If the past shows a group of young
martyrs sacrificing their lives to uproot the British from the
country, the present has a bunch of college pass-outs clueless about
their future.

The film records their transition while they work on a documentary


film based on the lives of freedom fighters, a gradual awakening to
what life around them is all about.

If Bhagat Singh and Sukhdev fought against British rule, these


youngsters wage a war against corrupt politicians who rule and ruin
the country.
BASIC STORYLINE:
The film opens in London where young British girl Sue, played by Alice
Patten, chances upon the diary of her grandfather, who served as a
jailor during the British rule in India. She decides to make a film on
the young Indian revolutionaries mentioned in the diary.

The company she works in refuses to sponsor her. It doesn't dampen her
spirit and she flies down to India where she meets Sonia, played by
Soha Ali Khan, who helps her in realising her dream. Sonia introduces
her to DJ (Aamir Khan), Karan (Siddharth), Sukhi (Sharman Joshi), Aslam
(Kunal Kapoor). After meeting them, Sue decides to make a film with them
on martyrs like Bhagat Singh, Chandrasekhar Azad and Rajguru.

Initially, they surprise her with their cynicism about freedom fighters,
India's future and corruption. The youngsters are convinced nobody can
propel India in the right direction.

But once they begin enacting the lives of the historical characters
comes the transformation in their outlook about the present and their
own role in changing it. The death of their friend, Flt. Lt. Ajay Rathod,
played by R. Madhavan, ignites their anger against the system and they
explode.

The film sends out the message that every generation fights its own set
of battles for the country.
