Movie Preview: Rajneeti

By Hindustan Times

Mumbai, April 23 -- What it's about... Reported to be an adaptation of the Mahabharata, the film is a family drama set against the backdrop of central India's politics. It revolves around a fiercely contested election campaign that brings money and power together, with treachery and manipulation used as weapons. As the conflict-ridden characters canvass for votes, love and friendship become mere baits, and relationships are sacrificed at the altar of political alignments.

USP: According to Prakash Jha, the story of young people venturing into politics is the film's selling point. "Running parallel is a great emotional story of a family caught in the cesspool of politics," he adds.
