Rajniti is a must see movie by Prakash Jha. It is a realistic movie.In the film , director has beautifully portrayed the character of men and women. I admire the writer and producer for wonderfully presenting the sad state of politics, the lure of power, the ignorance among common people,the sick mentality, misuse of power and money and the negligible role of women in society.
A woman [Bharti],who is fascinated by a man. She respects and trusts him . He takes undue advantage of her submission and leaves her pregnant. He runs away from her after making her life miserable.
Bharti who is rich, educated and independent in her views,rebelled against her father and joined the rival party. But she turns into ashes by the cruel mockery of someone loved and trusted by her. Her life ends with the decision of marrying and settling down without raising a voice against injustice done to her.
Another face of man is beautifully revealed when Samar ensures his elder brother's marriage with his own beloved for sake of money and power. He mocked her sentiments to achieve success in his dirty motives of gaining fund by her father and winning the election.
Here Indu [Katrina] is being used and traded by her father and lover. Later again they used her to save the party and asked her to take reigns of the political party which she accepts without resisting. The woman she portrayed is pathetic and disappointing. How and why she chose to be a puppet in the hands of a handful of men.
The three women,Bharti,Indu and Sarah were all rich and well educated, but badly used by the men [their own father ,brother and lover]. They allowed them to misuse them by going blind towards the filth they carried in their mind. The three of them compromised with the circumstances and gladly continued to live with the wolves in their respective families. These women who had all the riches on earth , couldn't contain the urge to stay away from luxuries, nor they anywhere tried to object the unfair games their family members were into. Indu accepted being an escape goat. The two rich and powerful families united at the cost of an innocent woman.
Why women are so dumb and naive? Why they do not bother to take their own decisions. Why they surrender before the wolves? As the movie progressed , men were all blinded by the money and power and they turned into criminals to retaliate the rivals. The revenge and lure of power was endless.
The pathetic state of women in our society is revealed beautifully. Since time immemorial, women were gifted, exchanged and married off shrewdly to achieve their hidden targets. Draupadi was kept on stake to win the game. Jodha was married to Akhbar, just to save the kingdom. Now after centuries even, the status of women is miserably similar. Indu type of women are made chief minister. Did she achieve this by her own caliber? How long women will continue living like slaves and being treated like commodity? Fathers, brothers and friends must stop trading their daughters and sisters.
In the movie Samar [Rajveer], returns from abroad and uses his intellect in playing with emotions and killing his own countrymen. Later when he lost the battle he returns to America to live in peace after playing Mahabharata in his own country. I wonder why such wolves come to India to make us more miserable and what our children are gaining by the education abroad? What kind of traitors we are nurturing? Damn ! The brain drain.
Sharing one more disturbing thought here. In the movie another bitter reality is revealed . Muslim voters are sold and the deal finalized in 50 crores. My question to my Muslim brothers and sisters,"How long they will be on sale , playing with the democracy of their own country India ?"
Giving rest to my thoughts with accolades to Prakash Jha.
