Raajneeti (2010)

The movie begins with a lady alighting from a black Mercedes, and giving food and clothes to the under-priviledged. It’s not any festival, so when one of them asks why she’s distributing food and clothes, another guy responds saying she’s been doing it for the last 30 years.

In a series of  flashback, we get a peek into the life of Bharti Pratap, the daughter of the then CM (Darshan Jariwala). Inspired by a leftist leader, Bhaskar Sanyal (Naseeruddin Shah), she goes on to oppose her father and joins Bhaskar’s party. One day, she goes to Bhaskar’s house, it starts raining. When she goes out in the rain and starts dancing, Bhaskar is worried that she would catch cold and goes with an umbrella to bring her back inside (he’s pretty elderly and the gesture so long is kind of fatherly from Bhaskar’s end. But it’s obvious that Bharti is not just impressed with his ideologies but is also in love with him as well). Bhaskar, in that one moment of weakness gives in, and they end up sleeping together. But when later on he comes back to his senses , he takes the blame for whatever happened, which he feels is wrong. He writes a note to her and leaving everything and everyone behind, he simply disappears. As expected, Bharti is pregnant with Bhaskar’s child.

Brij Gopal (Nana Patekar), CM’s secretary and Bharti’s muh-bola bhai, takes Bharti’s child and leaves him in a boat. He then convinces her to get married to Chandra Pratap ( Chetan Pandit).  The Pratap family consists of two brothers –  Bhanu Pratap and Chandra Pratap. Bhanu Pratap, the elder one,  leads a Political party and is supported by his younger brother Chandra Pratap. Bharti’s marriage to him is also a political deal to save the party from collapsing.

Coming back to present, there’s a Kabbaddi match going on in a village named Aazaadnagar and Suraj (Ajay Devgan) emerges as the winner.

He comes back home with the trophy to find his father, Ram Charan’s ( I hope I remember the name corectly, there were so many characters, it was kind of tough to keep up with everybody’s name) Mercedes parked infront of the house. He takes the car and goes for a drive. When Ram Charan, the driver of the Pratap household, finds the car missing, he is worried thinking he’ll get late. He is supposed to go to the airport to receive, Samar,who’s coming from the US.  After touring the lanes of the village, Suraj comes back with it. And finally Ram Charan goes to the airport. Samar (Ranbir Kapoor), brings a new watch for him and he’s so delighted. On their way home, they are stopped by Indu (Katrina Kaif) who insists on driving Samar home.

Samar, Chandra Pratap’s younger son, is doing his Phd in US and has to submit his thesis the following week. He has come just for a few days for Bhanu Pratap’s birthday.  Brij, now lives in Banaras, and when he hears of Samar’s arrival, he comes over to meet him. During the birthday party, Bhanu Pratap suffers a stroke and he’s taken to the hospital. The stroke leaves him paralyzed, and under the circumstances he hands over all his political responsibilities to Chandra Pratap and Prithvi Pratap (Arjun Rampal), Chandra Pratap’s elder son.

This leaves Virendra Pratap (Manoj Bajpai), dejected and rebelious. Being Bhanu Pratap’s son, he feels he had the birth-right to succeed his father and rebels his father’s decision of handing over the power to Chandra Pratap. When Prithvi decides on Jeevan Kumar as the election candidate of Aazaadnagar, Suraj opposes to him saying their leader must be someone among them, a Dalit like themselves. Encouraged by his friends, he himself files a request for an election ticket, which Prithvi rejects. But Virendra, determined on opposing everything that Chandra Pratap and Prithvi do, demanding his constitutional right, declares Suraj as the election candidate from Aazaadnagar and takes him under his wing.

Inspite of being a part of such a powerful political family, Samar is not interested in politics and he opts to become a professor after completing his Phd. He’s all set to leave, he even calls his girlfriend, Sarah ( Sarah Jean Thompson) and tells her that he’s coming back. Chandra Pratap, who was busy taking care of the political responsibilities all this while, suddenly realizes that he hardly got to spend time with Samar. So he decides to drive him to the airport. Samar is kind of uncomfortable with all the fuss that his father’s security men are creating at the airport and blocking the traffic, so he tells Chandra Pratap to return and that he would go in by himself. As Chandra Pratap is returning, he gets a call and rushes off. Samar is waiting at the airport and gets up when his flight is announced. Just then he hears the news of an attack on his father on tv. He hurries to the hospital where Chandra Pratap is taken to. On reaching he witnesses, Inspector Sharma ( Kiran Karmakar) arresting Prithvi, who was a little aggressive and hyper about the attack and raised his hand on Inspector. When Samar tries to interfere, Sharma slaps him so hard that he literally falls down rolling on the ground (and my heart almost broke at this sight). Brij comes and handles the situation and asks Samar to apologize, which he obligingly does. Prithvi is arrested and is taken to jail. Samar and Brij do all they can to save Chandra Pratap, but in vain.

It happens that Virendra  and Suraj had framed the plot and got Prithvi arrested. They provide Sharma with lots of charges and evidence against Prithvi. Samar strikes a deal with Virendra and Suraj that if all the charges against his brother are taken off, he’ll leave for US for good with his whole family. But on being released, Prithvi forms his own party and contests the election with Brij as his mentor and Samar as his Assistant cum guide.

When they run short of funds to finance their campaign, Samar offers to marry Indu (who’s madly in love with him but whom he had rejected earlier), whose father is the only person they see capable of catering to their financial needs at the moment. When Bharti goes to ask for Indu’s hand for Samar, her father says he wants his daughter to get married to the future CM. If Samar has no intentions of becoming one and he’s only helping Prithvi then he might as well get her married to Prithvi. Samar is least bothered, he was never in love with her. Prithvi, is quite reluctant in the beginnning to marry Indu, knowing that she loves Samar, but Samar manages to convince him that he was never in love with her. Thus, Prithvi and Indu get married, and fueled by Suraj, media creates quite a scene about Prithvi-Indu-Samar triangle.

Meanwhile, Sarah arrives. As Samar is tied up in family matters in India and given the situation, there is no way he could go back anytime soon,  she decides to come and see him.

There are two rival parties now within a family – Virendra and Suraj on one and Prithvi (with Samar and Brij) on the other. Both the parties try every trick to ensure their victory in coming elections.

Allegations and counter-allegations are made. On an attempt to achieve their ambitions and thus the power to rule, everybody turns so manipulative that  the line between good and evil almost disappears, making it impossible to distinguish heroes from villains.

As it turns out, Suraj is Bharti’s son (remember the child whom Brij had left in a boat?) and she asks him to leave Virendra and join Samar, but he’s too loyal to Virendra to betray him. And his loyalty towards the Virendra threatens to ruin his own family.

Raajneeti, as the name depicts is politics all the way – dirty and ugly – where love, friendship and relationships just don’t count – where people’s lives are mere baits. One hardly gets time to mourn a death. Before you realize that someone has been killed, there’s another murder, scheme being plotted.  It’s all about winning. It’s a complex story of people (or rather story of complex people), with unstoppable ambitions and hunger for power, who can go to any extent to achieve them, who will stop at absolutely nothing to reach the top .

 Though it’s not my kind of a movie, it was one of the movies I had been eagerly looking forward to. Thanks to Ranbir Kapoor. I just love this guy.  I’m usually not very keen on watching these kind of movies. I know it sounds strange, but I havent seen Gangajal or Apaharan yet or even Omkara for that matter. But ever since I got to know that Ranbir was doing this movie, I knew I had to see it.

Coming back to Raajneeti, amazing star-cast, and what a power-packed performance! I didn’t find Bharti very convincing, but otherwise, I was simply amazed by the charaters – each of them fitted the bill so well. I must admit that I missed Atul Kulkarni though. Somehow, I felt he should also have been a part of this movie.

One more confession, I have never been very fond of Katrina. She’s very good looking, no doubt about that, but I find all her roles the same and so I was little apprehensive about her presence here, but I acutally liked her in this movie. I felt she looked her best here (she looked gorgeous and and very graceful in – Saree + Bindi + Sindoor) and except for the oath-taking part – even acting wise she was good.

There’s nothing about Nana Patekar and Naseeruddin Shah that I can say here, which hasn’t been already said – Naseer steals the show with less than 5 mins of his role. And Nana, though not directly a political leader himself, he is one of the most pivotal characters. He drives the movie forward – from the opening scene till the climax, it’s he who decides the happenings.

Arjun Rampal – A born leader and a good man but with very less control over himself (does that sound contradicting?). He has done a fabulous job being impatient and a man to react to things too early without thinking of the consequences.

Chetan Pandit and Darshan Zariwala make their presence felt in their own way though they dont get much time on screen.

Manoj Bajpai – Fantastic actor and extremly convincing in the role of Virendra Pratap, the rightful hier of the throne who was denied of it and who’s set on getting it back at any cost.

Ajay Devgan : Again, very convincing as the angry young man, who opposes the exploitation of the poor by rich and trapped in a dilemma of choosing between the man who made him what he is and his mother who had abandoned him at birth.

Shruti Seth – I had usually seen her in a bubbly and carefree role,  be it in tv serials or her short role in Fanaa. It’s a different role altogether here – an opportunist and she has done it pretty well.

Kiran Karmakar – The typical Bollywood police officer, who is a puppet in the hands of a politician.

Sarah – Who has witnessed terrible violence as a child, and who wants to keep people whom she loves away and safe from it. And in an attempt to protect others she herself falls a prey to it. An innocent soul who asked for nothing, but lost everything, all in the name of love.

(Apart from the man himself, I also love the watch that he’s wearing)

Ranbir Kapoor – The most manipulative and treacherous characters of all. The only character with no interest in politics initially, almost an outsider in his own (political) family, a man with simple dreams, who’s very much in love with Sarah and who Indu is madly in love with; but who reluctantly gets drawn into it and in such a manner that he ends up mastering the craft of political warfare and doing things he had never imagined himself capable of. His simple intention of protecting his family after his father’s death takes him to the extent where he fails to recognize himself. He is his usual self one moment – cute and loving, who cares for everybody and the very next moment he’s distant and alien. Fantabulous performance – mindblowing portrayal of the character!!!

The scene where Chandra Pratap dies, he doesn’t utter a word, but it’s so moving – and this one incident changes everything he had ever planned in his life. And his reaction when he discovers what happened to his father was a cold-blooded murder and not a mere accident, and the way he seeks revenge.

The way he sits alone staring at the tv, with his cell phone in one hand and cigarrette in the other manipulating his next move – I just couldn’t help admiring him, even knowing that he’s plotting his next scheme, which could even cost somebody his life.

 In the entire movie he appears so matured as an actor, that I almost forgot it’s just his 6th movie. I’m truly fascinated and so much in love with this guy! Though story wise, it’s Nana Patekar who drives the movie (having known Nana for so many years, it’s expected of him to perform well), for me it’s Ranbir who steals the show – be it story-wise or performance wise.

The plot lends heavily from two sources – The Mahabharat and The Godfather. Bharti-Suraj part resembles a lot to Kunti-Karna story in Mahabharat and Samar’s roles and all the happenings in and around his life are heavily borrowed from the Godfather. Nana Patekar’s role in the climax again resembles Krishna’s role in the battle field of Kurukshetra.

It’s the story of a fiercely fought election campaign, where money, power, corruption, betrayal, murders, treachery and manipulation are the accepted norms and the most common weapons used. It’s politics – at its ugliest or should I say at its best, within family and beyond. A battle amongst the equals – among those who understand and aim for power, those who rule the destiny of millions of people, those who compromise and sacrifice on everything they hold precious just to win the race and to reach on top.

We have been discussing this movie for the last two days….a teammate of mine asked me how it is and before I could answer, another teammate of mine said : “Thik hi hai….nahin dekha hai toh rehne do na….kya karoge dekhkar. Har 45 mins mein (rest of us who had seen the movie expected him to say – “every few mins, somebody is killed”), koi aake kehti hai ke – ‘ I’m pregnant!’ yeh kya movie hui? ( It’s ok if you haven’t watched it yet. You are not missing anything much. Every 45 mins, some or the other girl comes and claims to be pregnant.) And we all were literally rolling down with laughter. That was all he noticed in the movie. 😉 But different people, different views.

Only few lines of Bheegi si bhaagi si  and Mora piya are played in the background. They are just promotionall songs. Even the item number by Barkha Bisht was cut short into few lines.

P.S : A friend of mine just sent me this tweet he had come across few days back that said : “the movie never fails to deliver – everyone becomes pregnant without fail, 100% success rate”

    hehe…

    mention the name of the team member Archana… i am sure he would not mind!
    nice one… i dint read whole.. i need to watch it!

    • sunheriyaadein Says:

      I don’t think he would mind….but I’ll have to pass on the link to him first, it would be more fun then. Ok…watch the movie, come back, read the rest of it, and post your thoughts 🙂

  2. Sharmi Says:

    Gosh your review sounds interesting. Guess I’ve to watch this one 🙂

  3. dustedoff Says:

    Hmmm. Despite Ranbir Kapoor, I’m not sure I’d want to watch this film. Somehow politics is just not my cup of tea (and like you, I haven’t seen Gangaajal or Omkara either). All that blood and gore and dirty politics puts me off. And my brain’s got so sluggish, I’d never remember who was who and what stakes they had in the game!
    My 15 year old niece was wondering whether or not she should go and watch this – mainly because of Ranbir Kapoor. But it sounds like something not too suitable for someone who’s just 15, huh?

    • sunheriyaadein Says:

      Such kind of movies are not my kind of tea either….but sometimes I happen to watch coz of actors. It’s a well made movie with a power-packed performance.
      Well, i wouldn’t have understood half of what was happening if I had to watch it when I was 15. I wouldn’t recommend it but if she’s fond of action movies then she might as well give it a try. She may not like Ranbir Kapoor any more after watching him in this though 🙂

  4. bollyviewer Says:

    Ranbir Kapoor! Its all HIS fault (and Prakash Jha’s and Nasseer’s) that I watched this film. I found it terribly disappointing (except for the fact that I landed up liking Arjun Ramphal better than Ranbir!) – politics is a dirty game, but not quite as dirty this film seems to suggest! All the high-level politicians seem to do here is – throw temper tantrums and go around committing gory murders (thereby creating mass-scale unemployment amongst the hitmen classes).

    Dustedoff, suitable or not, no 15 year old is going to enjoy this film! Hopefully there will soon be another Ranbir film that will restore her idol to his rightful place as a chocolate-boy hero.

    • sunheriyaadein Says:

      Hee hee….I don’t blame you when you say it’s all his fault!!! Politics has never interested me so much, so I can’t comment on how dirty it can get, but I really liked the way this film was made. And somehow, I didn’t like Arjun Rampal much here. Inspite of his role, I adored Ranbir.

    • dustedoff Says:

      sunheriyaadein, bollyviewer: Yes, I told my niece that yesterday. She’d already read a couple of other interviews and had decided for herself that Ranbir Kapoor or no Ranbir Kapoor, this wasn’t a movie she wanted to watch!

  5. harvey Says:

    Hey, this sounds real good!
    Looking forward to it. Anything based on mahabharata has to be good!
    But I think till I get my copy it will be a year or so!

    ROTFL at “I’m pregnant”

    @bollyviewer: Arjun Rampal has been praised so much for his role here. I wwonder how!

    @dustedoff: I left Omkara affter 25 minutes, becuase I couldn’t bear to see the tragedy and downfall of the main protagonist. It happens to me quite oftne with Othello, Shakespeare as well as Verdi and now Bharadwaj too! I need somebody who will watch Omkara with me. But I loved Maqbool

  6. sunheriyaadein Says:

    It is….I liked the movie though it’s not my usual kind of movie. I hope you get ur copy sooner than that.
    Pregnancy has been the favourite discussion topic post Raajneeti 😉

    Arjun has done a great job….but his role is not as polished as Ranbir’s. Or may be I am biased 🙂 I think I’ll have to watch it again to notice the other characters properly 😛
    I haven’t seen Maqbool either….phew!

  7. Nasir Says:

    I haven’t read the above review since I would like to watch the movie. My only reservation is about Katrina. I wonder why they selected her? Was it because of her somewhat anglicised pronunciations that reminds us of someone we very often see on the TV screen! I also hear that there’s a scene of Ranbir Kapoor travelling in a Mumbai local train. Doesn’t that remind us of someone who recently did that just to put a certain war-lord in place?

    I would like to see Naseer, Nana and Ajay. But Arjun Rampal? I hope he’ll revise my opinion about him.

    All in all, hazarding an opinion I would say that I wish there was some powerful actress in place of Katrina. Good for her, I see her already in the nominations for the best actress Filmfare Award!

    • sunheriyaadein Says:

      It’s a well made movie…and I liked it, more coz of the starcast than the actual story. Naseer, Nana, Ajay and Ranbir – mindblowing!
      I am not very fond of Katrina as well….like I said in the post, she’s very good to look at and she suits the normal NRI characters that she does, I was myself not very sure about her presence in this movie, but one thing I can say is that she doesn’t disappoint you. She doesn’t have much role here too other than to look good n make an appearance once in a while, but she’s looking amazing in Indian Attire – Salwars and Sarees. It’s only towards the end that she has some bhari-bharkam dialogues, which of course aren’t very well delivered, but it isn’t all that bad as either.
      Yup, heard that there were lots of similarities between the characters and the real life people, so censor board had to cut out quite a few chunks of the movie before releasing it.

  8. bollywoodeewana Says:

    Lovely review Sunehri, I’ve been hearing people praise Ranbir right left or centre i’ll wait for this on dvd, I’ve loved Ranbir in Bachna ae haseeno but i totally hated Ajab prem, yuck!! is what that film is.

    • sunheriyaadein Says:

      Thaks BD! 🙂 He’s done a fabulous job here, not the usual goody-goody hero stuff, he has a grey shade and he has pulled it off with a class.
      I loved him in Bachna Ae Haseeno, Wake Up Sid and Rocket Singh. I liked him in Saawariyan as well, thoguh the story didn’t make much sense to me, guess I’ll have to watch it again and analyse the story. Ajab Prem Ki wasn’t all that great, esp the secondhalf, I felt it was stretched to much but loved him in it as well 🙂
      In fact that was the first movie I ever reviewed, but that’s on my earlier blog –
      http://archanasapkota.blogspot.com/2009/11/ajab-prem-ki-gazab-kahani.html
      And I like the songs in that movie, esp Prem ki naiyya hai

  9. moviecraze Says:

    wow!! great review….felt as if i was in the theatre watching it….N bout Ranbir i was not a fan of his untill i watched RAAJNEETI…… the strongest character of the movie, what an attitude he displayed …..the toug,h stern and apt thinker. Can’t help praising him….the next character i love is Nana Patekar…the silent smile he gives throughout the movie really explains his character….n u r rite he helped the movie to move further……MANOJ carried out the envoius character smoothly…N KATRINA BABE c looked stunning in those traditional costumes….n gave the best performance c had ever……..YA IT’S A WOW MOVIE….
    I LOVE GANGAJAL…..I CAN WATCH IT THOUSAND TIMES….AJAY DEVGAN’S POWER PACKED PERFORMANCE JUST MAKES ME SAY WOW!!! n loved him as a angry young guy in Raajneeti……….

    • sunheriyaadein Says:

      Thanks for dropping by. I am a big Ranbir Kapoor fan. I liked him ever since I saw Saawariyaan , though I didn’t like the movie much (I think I’ll understand it better if I see it again). Have seen all his other movies till date, and have loved him in each of them.

  10. Nasir Says:

    Watched this movie a day ago at a movie-hall. Therefore, first allow me to congratulate you for an excellent review.

    The scenes move fast and the characters are thus introduced so fast that it becomes a little difficult to remember who is who. -and you have their names etched out -great! My only succour was trying to remember the plot and let go the names.

    I must say that the director has done justice to all the characters since they have a sizeable presence irrespective of who it is – with the sole exception of Naseerudin Shah whose early disappearance leaves us high and dry. Another disappointment for me personally was the Katrina’s political role. I was expecting something more serious but we have just a few shots of her canvassing the election, winning it, and taking the CM’s oath. Otherwise, she sizzles – with that fantastic body of hers. I only wish that her face could be more expressive to denote the finer emotions of the roles she play. Arjun Rampal looks and sounds better in his role here but I can’t make myself believe that like the true old Bollywood heroes he resists conjugal relatiionship with his sizzling wife, Katrina, especially since we have already been introduced before to his lecherous ways with how he sexually exploits Shruti who is interested in securing the seat of the Madhopur constituency which is under Arjun Rampal. Ajay Devgan lends a powerful performance just by his looks and presence. As for Ranbir, he gives a stellar performance. If the kid restrains himself from grabbing all sorts of roles, and restricts himself to just a few, he could go much further than what his father, Rishi Kapoor achieved. That reminds me of Manoj Bajpai who despite a good start in Satya had to disappear because he did not exercise restraint. In Rajneeti, he has given a tremendous performance and there is no conflicting inconsistencies in his character as we see in Arjun Rampal’s goody goody husband versus the exploiter of Shruti. I cannot opine about Nana’s role and performance.

    As for the plot, politics lends itself to plenty of gore which we have in abundance here. That’s about it. The spirit is missing. Remember AANDHI (1975)? You’ll know what I mean. There are some unnecessary scenes such as the Party’s approaching the Muslim voters since this was redundant to the main plot. It also appears that kissing and bedroom scenes are being accepted in our Bollywood movies and the days of two flowers or two birds coming together, and the symbolism of cascading water-fall, etc., are finally over.

    Not bad for a one-time watch!

    • sunheriyaadein Says:

      Thank you so much!
      Too many people and the scenes were shifting so fast when the movie began, I was quite lost for the first 5 minutes.
      Yes, every character is significant and well placed. I applaud the Director for that. I didn’t know that Naseer had such a short role, so I enjoyed his presence as long as he was there. Would have loved to see him come back later on, but since he had gone on a self-imposed exile, it wouldn’t have made much sense to bring him again. It was a waste of such a powerful actor to rope him in for such a short duration.
      Katrina looked amazing, but like you mentioned if only she could express, emote better and deliver dialogues well, I am sure she would have had a bigger role.
      Arjun’s character was quite conflicting, wasn’t it? Very well pointed out – the way his character was introduced, with Shruti, all in the name of a ticket to Sitapur (I remember this name coz I had recently seen Palkon Ke Chhaon mein that the entire movie is set in a village named Sitapur), it was unbelievable to see him resisting his sizzling wife. (We can very well classify this as a suspense film – needs suspension of lots of beliefs/things 😉 )
      Ajay’s presence added to the weightage. His looks….I like his eyes. Do you by any chance find any similarities between him and Sunil Dutt? Sunil Dutt is way better looking than Ajay, he was one of the most good-looking heroes we had. I don’t know what exactly, but I do find similarities between the two.
      I also hope and pray that Ranbir just doesn’t take up every role that comes his way. 6 movies in the last 3 years and each of them different from the other. I sincerly wish he continues this trend.
      Manoj Bajpai is a fabulous actor – consistent in his character as Virendra and in his performance as well. I have been very fond of him since Swabhimaan days itself (the serial on Doordarshan in the late 90’s). He did some great movies and stood out in his performance, but sad that he couldn’t make it big in the industry.
      Aandhi was a different class altogether – it’s one of my best films. A movie directed by Gulzar and that had Sanjeev Kumar in it just couldn’t go wrong in any way.
      Though both the movies are about politics, Raajneeti was more about action. Would have loved to see Aandhi flavour in it!
      True, some plots weren’t necessary. But these days when I go to watch movies, I don’t go with any expectations set. So even if it turns out to be ok…I like them (even OK movies have become so rare these days).
      Hee hee….and yes, two flowers or two birds coming together have become extinct these days. I kind of miss them at times 😉

  11. Srizna Says:

    Had i known that you would write such an amazing review i wouldn’t have watched the movie.I know Prakash Jha is a great flimmaker but with Rajneeti i also came to know that my bainee is a great writer. If it had been some other movie i wouldn’t have read the blog but thanks to the movie hereafter i will read all the reviews that you write. Awesome work…Keep it up.

    • sunheriyaadein Says:

      Thanks di!!! After more than 6 months, finally my family also dropped by and left a comment here 😉 Feels good!!!
      If you wouldn’t have seen the movie, then I am glad you didn’t know. I don’t intend taking away the business 😛
      I want everybody to watch the movie first and then read my review.

  12. shrinivas Says:

    Such a fine details about all characters 🙂 .. Great review archu!!

  13. Nasir Says:

    You’re right about the eyes of Ajay Devgan. They look like they mean business. Comparing them to those of Sunil Dutt, I did not find them as fierce even in his MOTHER INDIA (1957). Of course, he got a great push from that role of Birju but that was all about it. He is more of a romantic hero especially since his dialogue deliveries are measured and soft in tone. I liked him best in MERA SAAYA where he is torn between the memory of his “departed wife” and the presence of the one actually claiming to be living wife.

    Ajay Devgan seems to have put on weight and had somewhat a roly-poly look. Of course, I couldn’t agree with his character in the last scene when he throws away his gun when his enemies are about to kill him. Again, Ranbir would have uplifted his character higher if he had let off Ajay and for once not listened to the political guru Nana.

    Coming back to the subject of eyes, I need to mention the unforgettable Chandramohan the hero of Pukar (1939)!

  14. Sharmi Says:

    Hey, I’m waiting for your next post on something we both love. Old films and old songs. So, what’s next???

    • sunheriyaadein Says:

      I have few of them…saw already, just have to add screencaps and post, but no time 😦
      Just got back from work now. And have a team outing tomoroow…so that means I’ll get late again. So hopefully on Wednesday, I’ll post something 🙂
