There are some uncanny similarities between Ali Abbas Zafar’s Taandav and Prakash Jha’s 2010 star-studded political drama Raajneeti. In both the hero finds himself eligible for political leadership after his father’s death.Both are flawed Shakespearean heroes.
Both Saif in Tandav and Ranbir in Raajneeti seem to carry a large element of Sanjay Gandhi in their personality.
And in case you miss the point, Saif Ali Khan and Ranbir Kapoor are both named Samar Pratap! This looks like too many similarities all at once to be a mere coincidence.
