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.
Have a look at the slide show to see the details of Satyagraha Release.
Satyagraha, which calls for a movement against corruption has released on August 30,2013 in more than 1500 screens in India. This will occupy a large portion of the multiplex screens.
Talented Multi-Starrer Cast
The movie stars Amitabh Bachchan, Ajay Devgn, Arjun Rampal, Kareena Kapoor, Manoj Bajpayee and Amrita Rao in the lead roles.
Is It The Best?
Many critics are saying that the movie is very well executed by Prakash Jha. We wonder if Satyagraha will be the best political movie this year.
The actors and the director of the movie have contributed well for marketing the movie. They even launched a book named 'Satyagrha: The story behind Revolution'.
How Will The Society React?
Satyagraha may have portrayed incidents some real life situations. We wonder if the moviegoers take this seriously and be the change. We hope this movie wakes up everyone from their slumber.
We know you are curious about how the movie will fair in the Box-Office as opposed to a comedy entertainer like Chennai Express. We too are looking forward for the weekend collection. Stay updated with our website.
