Movie Details

SARKAR RAJ

Subhash Nagre (Amitabh Bachchan) is a wealthy and influential figure in Mumbai, where he resides with his wife Pushpa and their sons Vishnu and Shankar (Abhishek Bachchan). While Subhash adores both his sons, he shows his open disappointment for Vishnu who is having an affair with a Bollywood actress. When Vishnu shoots an actor who he believes is having an affair with his mistress, his righteous father threw him out of the house. Then all hell breaks lose in the Nagre household when a politician is killed, and the killer names Subhash as the person who hired him. Subhash is arrested - there is no hope for him in the courts as he has already been found guilty - not for this killing - but for acting as a power unto himself - a mafia-like Godfather who metes out justice when justice fails. Subhash is forced to come to terms that he is now powerless.

Watch this if you liked: "Sarkar" (2005) and "The Godfather"

Ram Gopal Varma's 2005 "Godfather" tribute, "Sarkar", finally sees a follow-up after some substantial hype. There's great distinction between the two instalments. Having watched the first movie, I thought it was pretty much settled where the story would take us. Boy, was I wrong!

RGV has brought together the much-heralded Bachchan family, Amitabh, Abhishek and Aishwarya, all playing powerful leads in the movie. The story chronicles the political web spun around Maharashtra, Delhi and Mumbai, glorifying the influence of a "Sarkar" over the masses.

We come in where we were last left off. Subhash Nagre (Amitabh Bachchan) singlehandedly holds great power over the political system but decides to take a back seat and passes the family business to his son, Shankar Nagre (Abhishek Bachchan). Learning closely from his father, Shankar applies changes to further develop the city using their own brand of "the people first" principles. Anita Rajan (Aishwarya Rai) seizes this opportunity to introduce a development project for the city. She stands by Shankar throughout the whole movie but comes to learn how things are done the Sarkar way. However, things don't turn out the way it was planned and Shankar's regime is to be brought down.

Just when you thought you had it all figured out, the movie makes a 360 degree turn and you'll be on the edge of your seat with your jaw hanging. You'll be totally clueless about what's going to happen next. The final scene caught me completely off guard.

The movie doesn't just deliver a great plot. It's also well acted and well shot, along with an amazing soundtrack and visual effects. It stays in your head like the lingering aftertaste of a really good bottle of wine - of course, only if Sarkar's regime lets you buy one.
