Rajneeti – A fan’s testimony

RajneetiRajneeti – the film

Finally, after a long time, a film sweeps the earth below your feet. Despite the fact that the story resembles Mahabharat and The Godfather, there are numerous moments in this film which takes us by surprise.

My favourite character here is not the one which is played by Katrina Kaif, but surprisingly the one played by Arjun Rampal. Others were established actors or the ones who got the script’s favour, but Prithvi has played a “Subdued” Sandy Corleone with elan.

Ranbir Kapoor has smoked too many cigarettes and I am wondering whether cigarettes also played a part in drawing strategies. If this is the case,  then Nana Patekar should have demanded few box of cigars. Just kidding.

But, the real winner here for me is the script, the pace is good and holds the plot together. I am a bit disappointed with the space given to Ajay Devgan, the director should have done better with him. He is not given enough space here, which is a pity.

This post will be incomplete if Naseeruddin Shah’s role is not discussed here. He played a superb cameo here.

Manoj Bajpai has also done justice to his role.

Overall a must see and better than lot of movies in the politics fold, such as Sarkar, Sarkar Raj, Rann etc.
