Satyagraha-The Revolution Has Begun! is another political drama coming out of Prakash Jha’s kitty. The movie sheds light on the current socio-political status of the India society and is the sequel to the 2010 blockbuster Rajneeti.
Just like any other Prakash Jha movie, Satyagraha is filled with powerful and versatile star cast like Amitabh Bachchan, Kareena Kapoor, Arjun Rampal, Ajay Devgn, Manoj Bajpai and Amrita Rao. Here’s a sneak peak into their characters.
Mr Bachchan will be seen playing the character of Dwarka Anand, a man who has a deep connection with the society and also is an inherent believer of society. He wants his son to give back everything to the society and the nation. If you have already watched the trailer of Satyagraha, you will notice Amitabh Bachchan’s power pact performance
Kareena Kapoor is back with another challenging role. She plays the role of Yasmin Ahmed, an international-working-on-the-field journalist, working for a news agency. She is hard headed and opinionated. She makes sure to cover everything and digs into the deepest of holes to find out the truth
Manav Raghvendra, a role that only Ajay Devgn could portray with charm and poise. He knows what he wants and has his special ways to get what he wants. He is the czar of telecommunications and also represents shining India
Amrita Rao doesn’t surprise us very often. She always plays it safe when it comes to choosing roles. She plays the role of Sumitra, Amitabh Bachchan, aka Dwarka Anand’s daughter-in-law.
Just like in Rajneeti, Arjun Rampal once again plays the role of an aspiring politician and boy! it suits him a lot. The brooding look is what we love about him. Unlike in Rajneeti where he is a badass, here he is a strong socially committed man whose ideology matches to that of Amitabh Bachchan
And then there has to be a bad guy. How can there be a movie about politics and not be a bad guy? We hated his gut in Rajneeti and hoped he would just stop playing with Ranbir. Manoj Bajpai portrays the character of Balram Singh in Satyagraha, a politician, who is a threat to the democracy.
