Satyagraha is a hard-hitting political drama, that portrays corruption onscreen from the scratch. So far, the film has been compelling and engaging, with some overpowering star performances.
When the film ends -- a good 152 minutes later -- one comes out with a feeling that Jha might have outsourced his job to somebody who was under no compulsion to do justice to his audience as well as to the film's superstar-cast.
Satyagraha grapples with this dilemma. More philosophical than fiery, it adorns reality with gloss and loss.
Showing true Satyagraha has no short-cuts, it also shows solutions glimmering ahead, as ephemeral, yet powerful as a rainbow cleansi..
No no and no. Rajneeti, Aarakshan and this are all the same
The acting is quite superb and the script is immaculate.
Unfortunately, the plot is the exact copy of Big Bs previous
