During the 1990s a major romantic saga with some action twist was a must. Rangeela managed to strike the chords with not just its remarkable story but also its tracks that are major chartbusters to date. It also checked the boxes of all must-list for the 90s movie. We can say that the major reason for the film being a hit was its storyline and tracks. This was the first time Rahman composed for a Hindi film and it was magical! There were songs for every mood and occasion.
Rangeela easily counts amongst the most influential musical debuts in the industry. While the songs varied from sensuous to soulful to street numbers, the music translated perfectly on screen, as it highlighted Urmila Matondkar’s sexy presence that established the actress as a sizzling diva for years to come.
