Satyagraha Movie Review

Satyagraha- as the name suggests is all about talking, working & fighting for truth and in one word I can say that Prakash Jha Sir did an absolute justice to the movie with his amazing direction & great performances by the Legend Shri Amitabh Bachchan Ji along with Ajay Devgn, Kareena Kapoor Khan, Arjun Rampal & ofcourse Amrita Rao.

Everyday there are cases of corruption/scam being brought to light & Prakash Jha does the absolute unthinkable by bringing all such social issues to screen in one go. Although the movie doesn't frame or surround/name any politician or series of events, but it does hit your mind hard with Anna Hazare movement, the murder of the whistleblower who exposed the road mafia and the telecom scam & the candle march style among many other cases that were brought to light.

It is a fight between people of different beliefs,Dwarka Anand (Amitabh Bachchan) is a firm believer of Gandhi Ji's Ahimsa,whereas on the contrary Manav (Ajay Devgn) believes in making money, no matter which way. After Amitabh looses his son Akhilesh in a tragic incident & the way his family goes through a circle of problems, he tries to take it on the system using the power of Satyagraha. The performance of Manoj Bajpai & his witty dialogues were awesome.

The screenplay,songs & dialogues were awesome except that I couldn't understand the need of the "Ras ke bhare tore nain" song out of no where & of no use at all. Amrita Rao leaves her impact although she had the least of a character in the movie.

Amitabh Bachchan leaves a huge impact every time he comes on screen. His husky voice adds value to dialogues & scenes. His moving body during the Satyagraha scene makes a huge difference & impacts all viewers. Amitabh Bachchan's seriousness.

The movie also tells how social media like Facebook & Twitter can cause a revolution, if used effectively.

A great message by Prakash Jha Ji to the people, specially the youth of India who spend most of their time on social media by uploading pictures,videos & tweeting. If they connect well,they can cause a revolution.

Lastly for you, Prakash Jha Ji in a special performance.
