Rang de basanti (a generation awakens)

This is the story about the youth of India today. A young London based film-maker comes upon the diaries of her grandfather, who served in the British police force in India during the freedom struggle. She plans to shoot a film based on the diaries and casts a group of friends to play the roles of the revolutionaries described in the diaries. The friends cannot identify with the characters and would rather enjoy today's life than get involved in a project the seems like stuff of textbooks.

I have not seen this film for awhile but I know that I liked it a lot. I am adding it to the blog so I can remember it for recommendations. It is not your standard Indian film, it was made after the traditional films and somewhat before the mtv generation of Indian films. ~Mike
