I enjoyed and got emotional..
29 July 2017 | by durlovSee all my reviews

Raag Desh like films must be made, and must be made like Raag Desh - honest, sincere, well researched and realistic without over sensationalism in any direction.

It is a story that will take to the times when India was fighting for independence at various levels. The language, dress, sets and the manner of speaking has been done so well that one would not contest the idea and the script. It makes a true story even truer.

The film brings out the patriotism the way it existed in India of then. The elite educated in the British built systems and institutions had accepted the British way of life, but there were fringes which discovered that true freedom is about running / owning the country and its jurisdiction. All the patriots portrayed are from well to do English speaking families and that makes the film interesting to watch. It brings a different perspective.

It is a must watch for every Indian to realize the cost of independence and the India of those times.
