On 26th January 2006, Rang De Basanti (RDB) was released worldwide. RDB captured both the zeitgeist and the confusion of the India's youth at a critical juncture at their country's history. Crippled by corruption in the bureaucracy and polity, should they accept things as they are and reap the benefits of economic liberalization or should they take a cue from the revolutionaries in their history and risk lives of comfortable numbness to try and change the system? The media dubbed Rang De Basanti as "The movie that became a movement". The impact it had, and continues to have 8 years on, on the collective conscious of the nation is unprecedented. Rubaru captures the essence behind the making of the movie and its impact long after its release.
