The story of Rangeela Raja revolve around two characters of Govinda one of them is a business tycoon and another one is Yogi (Monk). Both of them being brothers. The elder brother is as sleazy a man one can come across, while the younger one is a hanuman bhakt and refrains from women. The elder brother runs towards girls and the younger one runs away from them. The elder brother, one day crosses the line and rapes one of his employees (Mishika Chourasia). She takes revenge on him by marrying the younger brother (how?). Soon, the elder brother’s wife (Digangana Suryavanshi) finds out the truth about what he did, couples with that Mishika’s character gets pregnant which makes things even more complicated. What happens next is the rest of the film.
The film is apparently a cautionary tale against the rape culture. The film is all about curing men from their toxic masculinity. But the way the film goes and how everything is shown makes you wonder, if it was to be shown in this manner why was the film even made? Pankaj and Sikander have managed to make a film which has the plot that better suits the 70s, 80s and 90s. The film boasts of a plot that probably would have failed in that era too. The plot was bad and the script was even worse. Neither does this film entertain you nor sends out any message. It manages to cringe you to your spine and feels like an utter torture.
Technically, the film is not so impressive either. Cinematography by Siba Mishra is okay. Editing is subpar. Music is not that great either. Production design is okay. The script is terrible.
Performances from the actors were decent. Govinda puts up a good performance but makes you wonder why did he agree to do such a film? Mishika Chourasia does well with her role too. Shakti Kapoor is okay. Digangana Suryavanshi was decent.
Director Sikander Bharti takes you back to the 80s and 90s but in a bad, torturous way. This serves as a good educational film that shows film students the things to not do when making a film.
At the box-office
The film is a total disaster!
