Storyline Rang Rasiya
The film is based on the life and period of the renowned painter Raja Ravi Varma. An adaptation of Ranjit Desai’s Marathi novel on the painter.
“The Prince among Painters, the Painter among Princes.”- That’s Raja Ravi Varma. From sketching his imagination with charcoal on the walls of the Kilimanoor palace as a child, Raja Ravi Varma went on to change the collective Indian imagination by giving its goddesses and women real faces, bodies and emotions. His artistic vision extended beyond the canvas. He decreed to free art from the hold of the temples and palaces and bring it to the common man.
The film deals with the span of his life and relationship with his muse, Sugandha. Nandana Sen as the muse radiates the passion of Randeep Hooda, as Raja Ravi Varma. Manoj Muntashir has written six soulful songs in the film that are spellbindingly composed by Sandesh Shandilya, rendered by Sonu Nigam and Sunidhi Chauhan and others.
The picture-postcard cinematography by Bulgarian cinematographers Raltschev and Balakov translate the complexity of conflict in Ranjit Desai’s narrative beautifully onto screen.
