Chandani bar made people curious about director Madhur Bhandarkar’s work and now Satta cofirms his ability to create a classic movie.Satta is a very realistic depiction of Indian politics (which is very dirty and corrupt – everyone knows.)It also gives message about how the same screwed-up democratic system can be as well utilized to benefit people.A neat story, dialogues, acting and the trademark ‘Madhur’ direction make this a very impactful and memorable flick.
Cast: Raveena Tandon, Atul Kulkarni, Shri Vallabh Vyas
Delhi-based, liberal-thinking, politician-hating Anuradha Sehgal re-locates to Mumbai, finds employment, meets and weds the state’s aspiring Chief Minister, Vivek Chauhan. She soon finds out that the Chauhan family is two-faced, while Vivek himself is a womanizer and an alcoholic; her movements will be restricted, and she will be physically abused.Things dramatically change when Vivek is arrested for murder and lodged in a cell.
The Chauhans persuade her to stand for elections in Vivek’s place, which she does. It is here she will witness the nexus between the underworld, businessmen, corrupt policemen and politicians, and that her life is not only in danger outside, but she may be burnt alive by her conservative in-laws who suspect her of having a widely publicized affair with Yeshwant Vardhe.
