Prakash Jha's "Satyagraha" bears no resemblance to his previous political dramas nor does it entirely bet on Anna Hazare's Jan Lokpal Andolan and it is certainly not a sequel to his last outing “Rajneeti”. Rather, “Satyagraha” is the director's infallible attempt to capture the anguish of hoi polloi, beaten down by corruption and unjust system. It orbs around a movement initiated by the middle class Indians to hammer out a deal with the corrupt system and retrieve transparency in democracy. Prakash Jha spares none in this movie — everyone from the deceitful babus to unscrupulous politicians are brought to book here. An impeccably narrated plot, “Satyagraha” does borrow inspiration from a slew of real-life episodes — “the Anna Hazare movement, the murder of the whistle-blower who exposed the road mafia and the telecom scam, besides highlighting the police attack on public and the candle light protests”, but remains unbiased in its treatment. Realistic, hard-hitting and forceful, Jha's new outing leaves a “hammer-strong impact”.
