Bohemian Rhapsody (2018) - IMDb

 

Bohemian Rhapsody is a biopic that covers the life events of the famous classic rock band Queen's Freddie Mercury and the band in general. If you love classic rock in general or Queen in particular, this is definitely a must watch. Like most of the biopics this one also picks the Hero's journey template and executes it to produce a good output in the end. Freddie's complicated character has come out nicely in the film, actor Rami Malek does full justice to the character he is playing. The final cliamx of the movie which is a live performance for the famous live aid concert is the high point of the movie. That part of the movie does remind you of Bollywood's Rock On, but the comparison ends there. The movie could have trimmed off 10 to 15 minutes somewhere, given that the story line is quite flat.

My rating is : 3.5 out 5 (given that I like Queen's song)
