Raajneeti movie review
Prakash Jha's multi starrer political drama Raajneeti hits theatres today. Jha's love for socio-political and cast based issues isn't new in the least. While his film Mrityudand exposed gender biases, Gangajal brought to the forefront corruption in the police machinery. His latest offering Raajneeti, a much talked about controversial film, aims to take us through a thorough journey of politics, selfish interests and betrayals. It does so only to a small degree ending up more like a family saga bearing great resemblance to Shyam Benegal's Kalyug.rnrnA powerful Rashtriya Party is thrown off kilter when its central leader is struck by paralysis. While his younger brother takes over the party, a fierce battle for power ensues between the sons of the two brothers. This battle will claim many lives and leave you wondering why anyone would want to be a part of such a nasty game.rnrnJha definitely understood the squalor of Indian politics but he took it a bit too far. Even though Jha shows us stuff we already know, we like his film for his ability to execute the known and commonplace with such vividness. Where he fails however, is in piling up the number of bodies that he does. Had he restricted politics to a game of wit amongst the mercenaries and power hungry, Raajneeti would have been more appealing. Instead, he chose to use murder or assasination, which happens very rarely in politics, as his primary weapon.rnrnMost actors and there are quite a few in Raajneeti, pleasantly surprise us. To begin with, Arjun Rampal delivers one smashing performance, proving that he has definitely come off age. Katrina Kaif and Nana Patekar are the other two actors who deserve a lot of commendation. As for Ranbir Kapoor, the actor delivers a powerful performance but gets betrayed by his chocolate boy looks. Ajay Devgan and Manoj Bajpai are quite wasted in the film.

Movie Review : Mahabharata with Godfather twist (3/5)
The Mahabharata gets a Godfather twist? Neither the wise sage Vyasa nor the Hollywood director Francis Ford Coppola might approve of this desi-videsi fry-up, but all votes go to director Prakash Jha for pulling off a daring coup in his latest film Raajneeti. ...
Music Review : Riveting Songs (4/5)
Music is certainly not the high point of Prakash Jha’s films but the director makes an exception with his multi-starrer Raajneeti in which he teams up again with the composer Wayne Sharp, whose knowledge of Indian music isn’t hampered by his foreign origin....
