K C Bokadia's DIRTY POLITICS begins as obscurely as it ends. Let me try to put some pieces together, which I doubt might make any sense to you.
The movie begins like this: There is a search for Anokhi Devi who has gone missing. Apparently she was contesting elections in Rajasthan from a particular constituency. A character (not defined by the director) played by Naseeruddin Shah requests the CM to get the CBI involved in the investigation. The CM agrees. A leading politician who has a hand in the murder is upset.
Cut to the last scene: The judge hearing the case of Naseeruddin Shah who has pumped bullets into two politicians decides he has to resign from the hearing, in the midst of the hearing. The guy just gets off his chair!
Immediately the end credits roll.
In between we have stalwarts like Om Puri, Anupam Kher, Jackie Shroff, Ashutosh Rana and also Atul Kulkarni, Rajpal Yadav and Govind Namdev lending themselves to a movie which has no direction and no script.
Mallika Sherawat is Anokhi Devi. She is a 'Dancing girl' who catches the fancy of the politician who showers her with money and a ticket in his party just to get in bed with her. Stupid motive.
There are many scenes which vie for the 'worst scene'. But the one I give my vote to is for when Naseeruddin Shah comes into the courtroom to announce, ''CD mere paas hai.'' Imagine an actor of his caliber made to do an embarrassing scene like this!
Bokadia has a line-up of quality actors doing buffoonery on screen. And this is not even a comedy!
The industry or the government has to seriously consider having a 'screening body' to figure out whether the movies that are passed on to the Censor Board can be termed as a 'movie'. If not, the Censor Board themselves can do that job.
