The Rising doesnt open to good reviews

Aamir Khans Mangal Pandey The Rising was premiered at the Locarno Film Festival and also screened for the British media in London. No wonder the first review of the film comes in from The Hollywood Reporter that is no quite positive. The review is in all praise of Aamir Khans performance but adds Sumptuously designed and beautifully shot, the film will delight Bollywood fans but likely will fail to capture mainstream audiences with its melodramatic style and jarring combination of stirring action, brutality and musical numbers. The Bollywood style is so bouncy and optimistic, however, that it’s difficult to sustain the effect of an oppressed nation when everyone, even untouchables and slave girls, all appear so jolly. The social message gets a bit lost amid all the happy singing people. Lets see what the critics on this side of the Pacific have to say about the film.
