Rajeev Masand, IBN 
It's a bloody battle for political power between the rival claimants of the Pratap family. When the venerable elder suffers a paralytic stroke the seat of power automatically shifts to his younger brother much to the discomfiture of his son Manoj Bajpayee
Nikhat Kazmi, Times of India
Raajneeti is as exhausting as it is compelling.
Anupama Chopra, NDTV 
I've never really followed politics.

Prakash Jha mixes the elements of the greatest epic in the world the 'Mahabharata' with the mighty superior on screen drama 'The God Father' and gives us a studiously sincere film in which the human drama increasingly gets lost in the political twist and turns though its lead by a convincing cast where Ranbir Kapoor holds the key and it lacks the involving sweep of Jha's previous political yarns like 'Apaharan' (2005) and 'Gangaajal' (2003).

While there is no place for any dances in the film, the background music is worthy of praise. Raajneeti is engaging and dirty, entertaining and honest, demands attention and will make you think. Finally an intelligent film comes out of Bollywood this year

Raajneeti’s story is clearly inspired by the Mahabharata. There are the Pandava brothers, two in this case, a.k.a Samar (Ranbir) and Prithvi Pratap (Arjun Rampal), their mother Kunti a.k.a. Bharati, and father Pandu a.k.a. Mahendra Pratap. Then there is t
