“In matters of conscience, the law of the majority has no place.”
Kicks off with an incident at a prominent university which snowballs into a national issue. From there the film develops into a clash between two ideologies leading to an engrossing ride that protests against the manipulating and conniving nature of the political system. A fight against the various socio political injustices prevalent in the country. I have to restrain from touching the plot as it is better to maintain the intrigue that the filmmakers have created thus far. Even though the problem was depicted well , the solution or the answer to the same remains unclear, hoping for the sequel to touch upon the same.
Coming to the performance, Prithviraj and Suraj have yet again proven to be a winning combo. Both get their share of the limelight. Towards the ending the film stays strong cinematically. However since they were tackling such critical social issues, I would have preferred it to remain grounded. Nevertheless, it was a wonderful experience appreciated by the audience with consistent rounds of applause.
Overall Jana Gana Mana carefully blends a thriller with politics, making it a definite watch in the big screen for political thriller fans.
Verdict – 5/7 stars
This movie used a very interesting marketing strategy. The trailer and the teaser feature scenes from the movies’ second part.
And the promotions of the movie are ongoing for the release of the first part.
