Critic Reviews for Raajneeti
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.
Once you settle into the film, it veers from its original promise and descends into a bloody and incoherent mess.
More pulpy than political, this Godfather-ripoff Hindi electoral drama is a candidate for oblivion in U.S. theatres.
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 :)
