Sandhira.com 3/5
Even though the movie’s star-cast denied that the Satyagraha is based on the Anna Hazare movement, large part of the movie is clearly inspired from it. But then equally, a lot of it is simply fiction to add dramatic effect. The plot selected in the movie is strong and so is the selected crew of actors; Amitabh Bachchan, Arjun Rampal, Ajay Devgn, Kareena Kapoor Kaif, Amrita Rao and Manoj Bajpai. However, the movie disappointingly fails to create any impact on the audience that had such high expectations from Prakash Jha that has exhibited mastery in similar socially relevant movies like Mrityudand, Gangaajal and Apaharan.

BollywoodHungama 4/5

SATYAGRAHA is an all-engrossing, compelling drama that mirrors the reality around us. In fact, it's yet another brilliant addition to Prakash Jha's credible repertoire, who has created some of the most politically momentous motion pictures. For the splendid drama and the electrifying dramatic highs, I suggest you must watch this hard-hitting fare.

Times of India 4.5/5
There's a shot in Satyagraha - a rainbow glimmering for a second between jets of water pounding protestors - which typifies this film. Vibrantly layered, Satyagraha weaves together urban legends of corruption, encompassing corporate lobbyists to murdered engineers. It features slices of histories, Chauri Chaura, Mandal, Anna Hazare's Jan Lokpal Andolan. It takes a real issue - corruption - to reel life, movingly fusing fact with fiction, leading to a security guard accompanying a politico at its screening to sing out aloud, "Aam aadmi kitna aam, Raghupati Raghav Raja Ram..."

Naachgaana.com 4/5

Not a day passes when you don’t hear/read about rampant scams and corruption, dreadful and appalling crimes, shortage of essential commodities and thick-skinned and power-hungry netas going back on their promises. There’s no denying that you commence the day by reading/watching mostly miserable news in newspapers/news channels. Prakash Jha, a conscientious film-maker, has always emphasized on narrating stories that mirror actuality, raising pertinent issues that affect the nation. This time, in SATYAGRAHA, the proficient storyteller attempts to depict the anguish in middle class Indians and how this stratum of society is left with no choice but go on recourse to start a movement against corruption and the deceitful babus responsible for the mess.

Rating : 3/5

Story

Satyagraha movie deals with the movement of the middle-class to re-negotiate democracy.

It's the story of a man who is a firm believer of Gandhian principles, an ambitious entrepreneur who represents the modern India shining philosophy, a social activist who aims to be a politician, a fearless political journalist and a wily politician who uses every means to break the system.

`Satyagrah` is inspired by anti-graft crusader Anna Hazare`s high-decibel movement last year. It is learnt that the film will revolve around peaceful mass protest against corruption.
