  1. The movie ‘Rang de Basanti’ ignites the patriotism in anyone who watches it, not the kind that is all-engulfing and merciless but one that unites us across our thousand cultures, tongues and religions.That is something crucial to our country and that is something I envisage, hence my favourite

  2. Good evening
    An outstanding movie is the one that should continue to live on in us even after it’s over and one such movie that will always be intact in my brains is ‘Rang de Basanti’. This movie ignites the patriotism in anyone who watches it: not the kind of patriotism that is all-engulfing and merciless but one that unites us across our thousand cultures, tongues, religions and creed. That is something crucial to our country and that is something I envisage, hence my favorite movie.

    “Hope is a good thing, may be the best of the things & no good things ever dies” – these words boost-opened the doors to my unending quest for ‘INFINITY’.
