Rajneeti a political saga

Watched movie Rajneeti on my examination day. This man of Bettiah(Bihar) has a great insight of politics. Mritudand, Gangajal, Apharn and now Rajneeti. He himself a great political player though could not win elections but contested for twice. I am talking about Prakash Jha the maker of this movie. Movie is modern world Mahabharta. All the characters of the movie is similar to the charaters of Mahabharta. Charater of Virendra Pratap Singh (Manoj vajpayee) is close to Duryodhana. Suraj (Ajay Devgan) is smilar to Karna. A "dalit neta" becomes a follower of Virendra Pratap Singh(Manoj vajpayee), who is hyper ambitious of power. Nana Patekar like Krishna played an important role. Role of Ranveer Kapur(Samar) is also very fine similar to Arjuna. Katrina kaif is normal. Despite all the hue and cry about her role due to some similarity with Sonia Gandhi is average. I think she has lots of scope of improvement as far as acting is concerned. Nashirudeen Khan's role as a communist leader is very small. One night incident made him to leave everything. If his role had been longer movie would have been more interesting.
Costumes of the charaters are also very political. Manoj vajpayee in his costume with safari suit moustache and glass looks like a wicked person. Nana Paterkar in the role of a senior political figure looks very good in Kurta Payjama and a shawl over it, looks likea real senior politician. Katrina at the end wears saree like Sonia Gandhi seems to copy her walking style, flying hands like her. Nasir dress is also very real like a communist leader wearing kuta of thick khadi.
Pace of film is very fast. Even for a single second you don't feel relaxed. Macedes cars and convoy of leaders use to move here and there with a high speed. Huge crowd of party memebers, rallies makes this film very political and interesting. How a corrupt politician after his death promoted as a martyr. How on the basis of sympathy people use to give vote to a widow. How a female party worker is used for political benefit. How Luxurious cars moves in dalit colonies. All you can see in Rajneeti. Car bomb blast in which Arjun Ram Pal dies reminded me the death of Rajiv Gandhi. After that Katrina becomes like Sonia Gandhi.
When Katrina marriages with Arjun Rampal it was also an unexpected turn. Prakash Jha managed very well this huge starcast. All the artists played thier role very well. Kudos for all the team members of Rajneeti.
