The Rajneeti(c) troubles of Prakash Jha


So as the movie was gearing up for release in the near future, the political film has again run into trouble with the Censor Board. According to the latest reports, Prakash Jha's Rajneeti, starring Ranbeer Kapoor and Katrina Kaif, is too close to real life politicians, a fact that is bound to cause a lot of unpleasantness and discomfort to the politicians of the 'real' world.
Apparently the Censor Board is now of the opinion that the hard-hitting political drama is a little too hard-hitting in some portions, where the difference between real politicians and their 'reel' counterparts becomes uncomfortably thin....
Earlier it was implied that the film had been cleared by the same Board as it was not found offensive,abusive, or too violent. But this latest reasoning of the Censor Board seems to have some 'real' reasoning behind it.
For starters,did some of the politicians object to scenes from the movie? If at all the difference between 'real' and 'reel' is going into oblivion, where is the harm? We all know the bare truths about how our politicians perform. So what is the harm in seeing the same being played out on the screen? Last heard India was still a democracy....
