Critics Review

Times of India (TOI):

A hybrid of political drama and murder mystery, Dirty Politics is a warped tale. Despite flaunting a convoy of seasoned actors, the film fails to hold up its promising premise.

If I had to describe KC Bokadia’s Mallika Sherawat starrer Dirty Politics in internet parlance, I’d say it’s a typical troll plagued with false idealism. It froths at the mouth at little to no provocation, launches into buffoonish tirades against its targets, completely misses the point, and, in the end, is reduced to nothing but serving as comic relief.
