As the audience eagerly wait to rush to the theatres to watch of Prakash Jha's Satyagraha, some of the critics have already acclaimed this socio-political thriller highly. Some say the movie even deserves a standing ovation for brilliant portrayal of corruption in India.
Although Satyagraha is not a based on a true story, it mirrors the society and is inspired from the current situations. The movie which is a multi-starrer portrays a democracy that is corrupt and the development of a movement that fights against corruption. The movie is said to bring in the rise of the angry middle class and this begins a revolution. The movie brings in different aspects of corruption. Although filmmaker Jha had earlier said that he is not making the movie to give any solution, he has now said that Satyagraha aims to engage youth in politics.
Jha gives us a very sensible and important word of advice. He says, "Engaging youth doesn't mean bringing them to politics, instead waking them up to even vote sensibly. I aim to make the nation think that democracy is by the people and for the people. So, it is only their responsibility to take a call to make the nation and just not run away from it. Not voting or voting on the basis of social prejudices is not a solution."
It looks like the movie is set to be a wake-up call for the youth. We think it is time that the audience gets ready for a serious engrossing movie. We all enjoyed the family entertainer Chennai Express. Well, I guess it's now time for some reflection on our society and see how we can help being the change.
