The recently released film Kites received wonderful publicity like there was no other film. The expectations were sky-high but it stumbled from the very outset. The critics were not impressed – not even a bit. But Raajneeti, featuring Ranbir Kapoor, Katrina Kaif, Ajay Devgn, Arjun Rampal and Nana Patekar is a different film all together. Half the battle is won, as the critics are all praise for the film. It have received good reviews from all quarters.
Prakash Jha, the producer and director of the film, seems to be very confident of his product. The film was screened to the critics a day early – very much unlike other Hindi films. It"s a big risk because good review could do wonders to the film and at the same time, it could fall even before its release had it received bad review. Luckily, Prakash"s confidence paid off. Critics are all praise for the film – everything about it.
“Raajneeti story alters constantly, unravelling in a serpentine manner and speed... so much so that you don't know what's gonna happen next. It keeps you awed at the constant turn of events. Clearly, unpredictability is the biggest strength of Raajneeti. Yet, let me clarify, this is not a documentary, tetchy or preachy film. This one not only entertains, but also enlightens," wrote well known critic Taran Adarsh in his review. “I strongly advocate this film. Do yourself a favour: Watch Raajneeti," he added.
Well, it looks like Raajneeti is going to break this year"s box office record and bring new ray of hope to Bollywood, which has been struggling for so long. 'Well begin is half done" would best describe Raajneeti at the moment.
