Rang de basanti, released in 2006, was a breathtaking take on the power of youth, a movie which inspired us to stand up to make our country a better place, “Kyunki koi desh perfect nahi hota, usse perfect banana padta hai!“.
It was the movie which inspired us to take up peaceful protests and above all a movie which reflected an important part of our lives, our FRIENDS!
I was watching this movie again sometime back, and every time I see it, I could relate more to it. Precisely because, the characters are so much real!!
In a group of friends, there is always one DJ, the one who is always there, makes jokes, involves everyone and keeps them together. He is the one who always has the guts to go approach a girl! (As Sukhi says, ‘Cat hai saala!’) And even though he is scared at times, he is too awesome to admit it. He is the one who keeps his promises and brings your true self out when you are in trouble. After life is all about ‘tim lak lak..tey tim lak lak..‘ 🙂
“Meri to love line hi nahi hai! Bachpan me churan ke saath chaat gaya hoga! ” 😛
The ultimate bakchod, ever ready to drink, never gets girls but can’t stop talking about them(“Yr DJ kahin main kunwara hi na mar jaun yr!”) and the target of all jokes..Sukhis are the hearts of every groups! 😀 Because as much as they have the ability to laugh on themselves, they can die for their friendships anyday!
“Yr ye Aslam ka scene fit hai..aankhon me aankh daalke poetry sunata hai..haathon me haath leke taqdeer batata hai!!”
The shant, poetic and the good guy. He is the sweet one, easily approachable and I believe such people tend to keep everyone around them calm, lets call it the peace factor. Such people ensure that at least there is no fighting among the group. And the poetic feel to everything for free! 😉
“Mujhe degree milegi main kat lunga America. Tu jaa hi nai payega hum sab ko chodke!”
The family troubled, addicted to something(drinking/smoking/coffee), has some goals set by his family which he isn’t interested much in. But his friends are important to him coz they keep him going.
“Kimti jet udana, sexy jackets pehanna..pasand hai tujhe. Aur ladkiyan..ladkiyan to uniform walo pe marti haiii!!”
Finally, the pilot. That one friend who flies high for his dreams, but always returns to his friends. The one who advises them, proves his point and is there even when he is gone.
That one girl who loves them all even though they all are super weird in one way or the other, coz when she loved Rathore, she understood his friends too. And she is precious for all of them as they are for her. Now thats a princess life, isnt it?
Together, a little bit of them is a part of each other, they knew it, just like we know it. Look back, and see who’s who and you might find instances of RDB in your life as well! 🙂
Coz “Gate dey iss taraf hum life ko nachate hai..tey duji taraf life humko nachati hai………..”
