Critic Reviews for Raajneeti
Prakash Jha has the rare ability to spin stories which are raw and grounded. `Raajneeti' should have been all this and more, given that it is about dynastic politics, and a much-publicised representation of real-life figures.
Its adult and hard-hitting subject matter probably won't bring in masala-loving family crowds, but it offers a lesson with long-lasting emotional and moral impact for thinking audiences.
The film -- full of romance, intrigue and fraternal strife -- is too diffuse to score political points. Or to have much impact.
Prakash Jha aims for something trenchant about thwarted destiny and ugly ambition in modern Indian democracy but mostly winds up with a convoluted and tonally awkward Godfather rehash, with nary a character worth rooting for.
The partly stiff-acting and tear-inducing reveals shroud the film's more earnest efforts at dissecting the bureaucratic, back-alley dealings.
Audience Reviews for Raajneeti
Was like a breath of fresh air amidst all those NRI movies coming from Bollywood... If it was'nt for the sloppy climax, would've given this a 5 out of 5 :)
