March 6 | PVR Cinemas
Aptly called Dirty Politics, this film by KC Bokadia comes not only with great promise but with a stellar star cast too. Starring Mallika Sherawat, Jackie Shroff, Anupam Kher, Om Puri, Atul Kulkarni, Rajpal Yadav and Naseeruddin Shah among others, it explores the ruthless games politicians play to win votes. Focusing on cheating, threatening and even sexual favours, expect this one to be powerful and thought provoking.
