Nobody expected Mallika Sherawat’s comeback vehicle – Dirty Politics to be anything but mediocre. But this K C Bokadia directed movie manages to transcend into a film which should bag top honours at next year’s Kela awards.
Sherawat’s character is based on the infamous Bhanvri Devi, a dancer who makes her way into the world of politics and manages to control the rich and powerful with her feminine charms. And that is just about all there is to the movie. Don’t go expecting a layered tale of a corrupt political system. Ditry Politics is merely a reason for Mallika to dance around wearing skimpy clothes while a thoroughly bored Om Puri ogles at her. Anupam Kher and Naseeruddin Shah are just as wasted while Mallika herself has given up even trying to act well.
Bokadia has made what can only be termed as a C-grade film that is barely deserving of a rating. The saddest part about Dirty Politics however is the amount of wasted talent it contains. Mallika at least had carved a niche for herself in B-town but it seems as if the likes of Sunny Leone have kicked her off that throne too.
We wish we could give you a reason to go and watch this movie but we really have none. And for the lack of a lower rating, we will give Dirty Politics a half star.
