Satyagraha Movie Review

Review By: Saibal Chatterjee
Ratings: 2.5/5

Prakash Jha’s Satyagraha is a political film that, for all its well-meaning bluster, neither stings nor scalds. It fails to hit the core of the truth that it seeks.
The Apaharan-Raajneeti-Aarakshan formula is intact here. Director and writer Jha takes up a topical socio-political issue and forges a drama designed to deliver a message of import.

Parts of Satyagraha make perfect sense but, on the whole, it never comes close to clicking into top gear. It leaves you more disappointed than angry.

Review By: Saurabh Dwivedi

The element that eventually works to hold the many aspects of a movie together, was missing. It was almost as if actor and screenwriter Anjum Rajabali was dealing with a certain sense of urgency while working and decided to add as much as possible in the 152 minutes that make up the film. This explains the flat response the film has generated from the audience till now.

Not only that, the movie is replete with the old tried-and-tested formulae - including item numbers - which also helps explains why the movie lost ground. Whether the movie will survive the weekend audience, is only a matter of time.

The film would have become interesting if the story had allowed for some nuance. If, for example, Amitabh's upright, moralistic Babuji had been shown to have some flaws, or Manoj Bajpayee's evil politician who is the chief villain, had been a little humanised, or if Sengupta's honest technocrat had been given a little more to do, Satyagraha would have had more heft. But then that would have made the fight between good versus evil a little complicated, and who wants complications in a film that serves up uni-dimensional characters who are barely disguised versions of real-life personalities in a story that embraces the simplistic with fervour?

Satyagraha brings together urban stories of corruption from history - Chauri Chaura, Mandal as well as Anna Hazare's Jan Lokpal Andolan. Bachchan plays a retired and idealistic teacher Dwarka Anand. Manav (Ajay Devgn) is his engineer son Akhilesh's friend - an ambitious capitalist. Both friends are really close, and one day Akhilesh dies. Minister Balram Singh (Bajpai) announces compensation, but Akhilesh's wife Sumitra (Rao) cannot get that despite daily applications to government babus. One thing leads to another and an angry Dwarka slaps an arrogant official and gets imprisoned. The influence of social media is depicted, as Manav starts a campaign to free him by roping in social activist Arjun Singh (Rampal) and journalist Yasmin (Kapoor). The ‘satyagraha’ escalates, leaving politicians panicky about it.
