It can’t be denied that Raajneeti, released it 2010, is one of the finest films made in Indian cinema. Set against a political web, the film brilliantly captured the lies, deceit, uncertainty, ruthlessness and betrayals and shifting alliance of a political dynasty with their fickle fickle friends and staunch foes. Beside, it had starred an amazing ensemble case, including Ajay Devgn, Ranbir Kapoor, Manoj Bajpayee, Katrina Kaif, Arjun Rampal, and Nana Patekar among others, not to mentioned being one of the year’s biggest blockbusters, netting Rs. 92. 28 crore nett ten years ago.
