A must watch movie which shows the realistic view of politics in India

Aditya Om has given good story but maybe with less characters. Lochan yadav is played convincingly by newcomer Arshand Khan. The music score is also biggest surprise package. Altaf Raja is very grand in his comeback and should sing more in future. I loved Manisha kelkar bold scenes and also role of Aditya Om is played very convincingly. India needs more movies like Bandook. The dialogues are very true like in daily life in India. The progress of movie is good and I liked the climax. Aditya should have more fight scenes with hand. Characters in movie are lifelike and realistic. I hope movie is released with item song for us to enjoy. In theater public was enjoying the dialogues very much.
