Movie Info

This epic tale of Indian democracy concerns Bhasker Sanyal (Naseeruddin Shah), a firey leftist politician who makes a single mistake that compromises his respectability and power. His fall affects nearly a dozen other people, including a family member who wanted nothing to do with the world of politics. Raajneeti was directed by Prakash Jha. ~ Perry Seibert, Rovi

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.

More pulpy than political, this Godfather-ripoff Hindi electoral drama is a candidate for oblivion in U.S. theatres.

June 7, 2010 Full Review Source: Film Journal International
Film Journal International

A contrived, overlong, convoluted and emotionally hollow political thriller that's high on production values and style, but low on substance, palpable suspense and poignancy.

The partly stiff-acting and tear-inducing reveals shroud the film's more earnest efforts at dissecting the bureaucratic, back-alley dealings.
