Review : Raajneet


To slot RAAJNEETI as a multi-starrer film would be erroneous. It’s a multi-actor film and every actor delivers a sparkling performance. The film has some of the biggest names in the business, but the ones who stand out are Ranbir Kapoor, Arjun Rampal and Manoj Bajpayee. Ranbir surprises you with every film. Here’s an actor who can give the best in the business sleepless nights. Arjun is a revelation and what a terrific performance he pitches in. He’s like an untamed lion. Manoj delivers his career-best performance. He plays the evil part superbly.

Ajay Devgn is sidelined in the second hour, but you need to give it to the actor for accepting and enacting his part with complete conviction. Nana Patekar is brilliant. He utters the most acidic lines with a smile, which only an actor of calibre could’ve achieved. Actually, you can’t imagine anyone else in this role. Katrina Kaif is first-rate. The sincerity and earnestness shows in every sequence. She sheds her glam doll image and transforms into an actor with this film. Naseeruddin Shah, in a brief role, does well. Sarah is good.

The film has a number of talented names in supporting roles and each remain etched in your memory, especially Dayashanker Pandey, Chetan Pandit, Darshan Jariwala, Shruti Seth, Kiran Karmarkar and Vinay Apte. Nikhila Trikha, as Arjun and Ranbir’s mother, is admirable.

On the whole, RAAJNEETI makes a sweeping impact. A truly admirable effort, this brilliant film is not to be missed.

  1. Yakuza, Ajay Devgn is sidelined in a Prakash Jha film 😦 impossible, shocking. Hope its not true. Iam watching this film only for him.

    • dats da only reason i was gonna watch it. plus i like naseer (every1 does) and mannoj.

      tbh i dont know why dis film has been reviewed dis early. and tbh taran lost his credibilty wen he gave KURBAAN and KARZZZ 4 stars.

    • David, few days back i watched Ajay interview where he was asked same question, he replied that he didn’t read the script and his role before signing movie as he had full faith in Prakash jha. I guess something has gone wrong this time.

      • i seem to find dat a lot of directors r doing dat wid actors nowadays.

        bhansali did it to Salman
        farah to SRK
        prakash jha to Ajay (possibly)

        many oder cases. it could cme bk to haunt dese directors

  3. Lookslike Raajneeti is good. Cnt wait to see.

  4. Yak, please let us know the advance booking status of Rajneeti, heard its not so encouraging. Is it true ? Please update soon if possible.

    • David, advance booking was never meant to be good at first place based on genre of movie, I will go to office on second half and will update the opening of movie.

  5. Hey Yakuza, whts up? N plz give me the breakdown of SIK N GHAJINI.

  6. whatever the BO result, this movie is looking like the best so far this year. so everyone should watch it regardless of who their fave actor is etc

  7. This trash movie was hyped unnecessarily, Prakash Jha never made a huge commercial success

    Ranbir & Katrina may pull the crowd

    Otherwise this movie will be an above average at best

    • how do u know it is trash without watching?…just because it deals with politics & not in silly gags lie ur HFs, APKGKs & SiKs…

  8. I dont understand why a role in this film wasn’t offered to akki? he would of been good in a politician role and has the perfect common accent, how is he gonna act in quality if no one is willing to offer him, and instead star kids get easy ticket to success, better films.

  9. will be disappointed if Ajay will not in lead actor,he is superb in P Jha movies.hope Raajneeti will be superhit like Houseful.
