- Genre: Comedy, Drama
Subhash Kapoor, whose previous movies, Phas Gaye Obama and Jolly LLB won great critical acclaim, has now come out with Guddu Rangeela. The movie, which stars Arshad Warsi, Ronit Roy, Amit Sadh, Aditi Rao Hydari in the lead roles, was released in theaters on 3rd July 2015. The music for the movie has been composed by Amit Trivedi and the lyrics have been penned by Irshad Kamil, while the film has been produced by Sangeeta Ahir.
The story revolves around cousins Rangeela played by Arshad Warsi and Guddu played by Amit Sadh, who work with the village orchestra and also moonlight as informers for local gangs. When Guddu and Rangeela become involved in a controversy, the corrupt inspector seeks a bribe of Rs. ten lakhs to let them go scot free. It is then that Bengali, who is the PRO of the underworld, offers them big bucks to kidnap the deaf and mute, Baby played by Aditi Rao Hydari. However, Baby has her own agenda about seeking revenge from her estranged brother-in-law and local political leader, Billu Phalwan played by Ronit Roy. As it turns out Rangeela also has a score to set with Billu but Billu reveals a secret that turns Rangeela’s world upside down. That is all we can reveal about the plot.
Although Suhash Kapoor makes every effort to present Haryana as the perfect backdrop for a desi western flick, his fails to creating the impression. However, all is not lost for this comedy drama especially since it boasts of a great performance by Arshad Warsi. The first half is especially entertaining as it sets the pace and momentum for the film although it starts lagging towards the middle of the second half and fails to make any impact towards the end.
Overall, the movie is a good one time watch and IndiaCafe24 gives Guddu Rangeels a rating of 3 stars.
