What’s the film Rajneeti all about…? It is reported to be a revision of the Mahabharata, the film is a family drama set against the background of central India’s government. It rotates around an intensely challenged election campaign that brings money and command together, with treason and exploitation used as weapons. As the conflict-ridden characters campaign for votes, love and friendship become mere baits, and relationships are sacrificed at the altar of political alignments.

According to Prakash Jha, the story of young people venturing into politics is the film’s selling point. He told the media that “Running parallel is a great emotional story of a family caught in the cesspool of politics,”
