'Laal Rang' Tweet Review: Strong Performances Outshine Predictable Story
‘Laal Rang’, a bromance which is based on true events that happened between 2002 and 2007, is an interesting expose that puts forth the illegal blood trade which is widespread in some parts of India.

No matter what role he is essaying – that of a truck driver or a cop, actor Randeep Hooda manages to steal the show each time he comes on the 70mm. And with his new film ‘Laal Rang’ that releases today, Randeep is ready to impress everyone with his acting chops.

‘Laal Rang’, a bromance which is based on true events that happened between 2002 and 2007, is an interesting expose that puts forth the illegal blood trade which is widespread in some parts of India.

Since this is the first time that a Hindi movie is dealing with such a hard-hitting topic, expectations are huge. Will the unique subject find several takers? Will Randeep Hooda leave an indelible impact with his colourful character Shankar? Sameeksha is inside the theater to get you all the answers.

10:25 AM - #LaalRang : The film has a very nice haryanavi flavour to it. Till now it's just #AkshayOberoi on screen and he keeps you invested.

10:29 AM - #LaalRang : @RandeepHooda is on screen and a different charm comes with him. The accent suits him totally.

10:38 AM - #LaalRang : @RandeepHooda is the star of every frame!

10:44 AM - #LaalRang : @AkshayOberoi brings a certain innocence on screen. Lots of potential.

10:45 AM - #LaalRang: Lot of time has been invested on character establishment. The thrill is yet to set in.

10:55 AM - #LaalRang : The story so far is flat, although characters are well placed.

10:58 AM - #LaalRang : @PiaBajpai as a small town girl is hilarious.

11:01 AM - #LaalRang : 'Dilli Ke Dracula'! @RandeepHooda has a certain sincerity in his acting. Commendable!

11:06 AM - #LaalRang : Nomatter how much the actors keep you invested the plot is stretched and thrills are none.

11:12 AM - #LaalRang : What was being promoted as a thriller is coming across as a romantic- drama, till now.

11:21 AM - #LaalRang: The rural grittiness in every character is brilliant. Wish could say the same for the story.

11:52 AM - #LaalRang: Greed and ego sets in the thriller finally. Hope it pumps up the plot now!

12:04 PM - #LaalRang: The story looks predictable now. However, Shankar (@RandeepHooda ) isn't.

12:17 PM - #LaalRang: What could've been a dark and edgy plot has been reduced to a mere prop.

12:34 PM - #LaalRang: The film is dragging unnecessarily now. Heart-break is the central theme of the film and not illegal blood trade.

12:43 PM - #LaalRang: It has all the components of a relationship drama but fails miserably as a thriller-crime film.

12:45 PM - #LaalRang: @RandeepHooda shines while @AkshayOberoi and @PiaBajpai show good potential.
