The story is basic, but the character study makes it so great.The thoughts of a character and his/her P.O.V. are not usually the focus of a film.Cheers.

I think it has to do with how people watch it.Since it was the Emergency period in India, every youth in India modeled himself on 'The Angry Young Man' persona.The psychotic yet wanna-do-something-good-for-the-society kind of internal conflict in the youth is something that people in the USA might relate to.We were not a part of the World War II, so we would always connect with Rang De Basanti more than the movie 'Saving Private Ryan'.

The best thing about the movie is how slowly and gradually the man loses his mind and gets obsessed with cleaning the streets.The acting by De Niro is amazing.Jodie Foster is brilliant in the movie.The concept that a war depression can make someone believe that the enemy is not real is brilliant.
