Good start. Needs more refinement
7 November 2014 | by glaxgracesSee all my reviews

Rang Rasiya - first of all, Hats off!! to the team for persisting with the final print. It takes courage for the cast, especially Nandana Sen, to deliver content as bold as this. The frontal nudity was handled perfectly and given just the right amount of attention it deserves. Nothing more. Nothing less.

Just like Sunny Leone coming to Bollywood, this movie is a very very bold move and am glad that the movie hall full of grown ups handled it maturely.

Good to see India progressing!!!

Coming back to the movie, too much content to be covered in too short a time. Would have been great if the movie focused on Raja Ravi Verma and his protagonist as the story felt too boring at times.
