This Friday, India's democracy will be under fire in the movie Satyagraha. In the upcoming film, Amitabh Bachchan is ready to start a movement against corruption. Are you ready to join this movement this weekend?
Satyagraha is political thriller directed by Prakash Jha and the movie is said to reflect the society and focus on the common man and highlight his aggression, struggle and demand for justice.
Quite a few scenes from the movie might remind the audience of the Anna Hazare movement that took place in 2011. Although the movie has been inspired by current situations, Jha made it clear to us that Satyagraha is not based on any true story. Jha tells us that Big B does not play the role of the social activist Anna Hazare in Satyagraha.
The movie which is set to release on August 30 will mark another political thriller from Prakash Jha. The director is known for such movies. He also tells us that he is not creating any social message through this movie. Satyagraha will have an uprising of the middle class. Let us wait and watch if this movie brings any changes in the society.
