I am actually confused if I should be shocked, sorry or sad after watching Dirty Politics because the film has veterans like Om Puri, Naseeruddin Shah, Astutosh Rana, Anupam Kher, Rajpal Yadav, Jackie Shroff, Sushant Singh, Atul Kulkarni and last but not the least Mallika Sherawat, and the end result if shameful.
Dirty Politics is loosely based on the Bhanvari Devi’s sex scandal. In the film, we have an old minister Deenanath (Om Puri), who has his eyes set on a dancer named Anokhi Devi (Mallika Sherawat).
Now both Deenanath and Anokhi Devi have a roaring affair that’s full of lust and sex. Post this our lovely Anokhi enters politics.
In all of this, there is a sex tape that’s made and Deenanath is blackmailed by Anokhi Devi as she has her eyes set to reach the top.
Thus starts a game between the two, in which Deenanath goes all out to get hold of the tape and the adamant Anokhi Devi keeps up the pressure on him. She even demands Rs 50 crores for the lovely sex tape, something that the minister refuses.
We now get to meet actors like Anupam Kher, Naseeruddin Shah, Rajpal Yadav, Jackie Shroff, Sushant Singh, Atul Kulkarni who just walk in an out as and when the scenes demand.
I wonder why and what was going on with K.C. Bokadia when he was working on this project as there is nothing that can be as incoherent and juvenile as this one.
A subject that was so relevant and serious has been make a mockery off. All the actors, have been wasted as none have any defined roles.
There is no logic to facts like – why is Anokhi Devi so ambitious, why does she want to enter politics, why is the politician so desperate to sleep with her, well the list is endless.
All in all, it’s best to avoid this one, sit at home and watch the World Cup, even if it means the repeat telecast.
