Critic Reviews of "Raajneeti"Hollywood ReporterJune 10, 2010
Its adult and hard-hitting subject matter probably won't bring in masala-loving family crowds, but it offers a lesson with long-lasting emotional and moral impact for thinking audiences.New York TimesJune 04, 2010
The film -- full of romance, intrigue and fraternal strife -- is too diffuse to score political points. Or to have much impact.Los Angeles TimesJune 04, 2010
Prakash Jha aims for something trenchant about thwarted destiny and ugly ambition in modern Indian democracy but mostly winds up with a convoluted and tonally awkward Godfather rehash, with nary a character worth rooting for.Georgia StraightJuly 03, 2016
Once you settle into the film, it veers from its original promise and descends into a bloody and incoherent mess.Film Journal InternationalJune 07, 2010
More pulpy than political, this Godfather-ripoff Hindi electoral drama is a candidate for oblivion in U.S. theatres.NYC Movie GuruJune 05, 2010
A contrived, overlong, convoluted and emotionally hollow political thriller that's high on production values and style, but low on substance, palpable suspense and poignancy.Slant MagazineJune 03, 2010
The partly stiff-acting and tear-inducing reveals shroud the film's more earnest efforts at dissecting the bureaucratic, back-alley dealings.
