Well its time to select candidates for election. We have Bhima guided by Krishna givng ppt presentation with Dhritarashtra paralysed in hospital. In walks in Karan nd Duryodhan and openly declares a war.
Welcome to Rajneeti -Modern version of Mahabhrat. I always wished tht I cld c a bollywood version of Mahabharat nd Prakash Jha fulfilled it but he made it wth a heavy hindi language.
The plot nd synopsis is almost the same as tht of the gr8 epic. Lets talk abt characters. This 3 hrs movie starts with a sixer by the Sun God nd (GOD of acting) Nasserbhai who hits a sixer wth a role not more thn 6 minutes. Ajay 'Karan' Devgan doesnt speaks less but his intense eyes talk a lot. Krishna (Nana unlike his hyper image) is cool headed mastermind who also speaks less but smiles more, espcially when he has sumithng at the back of his head. Duryodhan (Bajpai) who shouts loudly nd says 'DNT U DARE SIDELINE ME' Bikku Mhatre has returned. His pointed moustache, his eargnersss to win , frustation (epcially while he is on alchohol) shows it all. Rockstar Bhim (Rampal) is unlike Joe frm Rockon , very hot blooded and ruthless character he sometimes struggles in dialog deliver but does delivers very well. Simulatneosly like his career we have Ranbir getting transformed from Nakul & Sahadev to a smart Arjun.
Nd ya Katrina & Sara Thompsons get to play thier roles of Radhas as well as Draupadi. Kandhari Shruti Seth cld hve been better.
Beisdes we have other charaters also Shakuni Mama (Apte) Adhiratha (Daya Shankar) etc etc
Someparts of film worth a mention, the bomblast scene, Krishnas translation of Gita in one line to Ranbir in the climax, Katrinas speech (I wish the filmaker wld hve keep tht a surprise element).
Everything said & done the audience votes to the movie. Well done Jha..Hats off..
But on serious note I have gr8 fascination for the epic. But one question arises me R these character frm Mahabharat sometimes refered as GOD really deserve it. Gita also confusses me at one end it says 'Every action has equal and opposite reaction' and other hand it says 'Whtever goes comes back'. Whtever said nd done I say..Watch this movie..
