Politicsâ€¦ rare, medium or well done?Som | November 9, 2009, 7:31 PM | no comments | 0 views
Politics! Itâ€™s tackled by our B-town movies..only once in a flu moon. Right now, in Prakash Jhaâ€™s Rajniti, the Mahabharat is sought to be adapted to todayâ€™s realpolitik. Fine, should be punchy, worth spotting the reference to the context, whoâ€™s playing which epical character.
Shyam Benegal did practically the same update with Kalyug, incidentally. Twenty-eight years ago!
Never mind. Jhaâ€™s takes on the badlands of Bihar (Aparahan, Gangaajal) have been vital and volatile. And already there have been guesses that Katrina Kaif is portraying a film version of Sonia Gandhi. Insiders on the project, say nothing of the sort, that she is in fact has shades of the Mahabharataâ€™s Draupadi.
