Amitabh Bachchan, Abhishek Bachchan, Aishwarya Rai, Govind Namdeo, Tanisha Mukherjee
|When Anita Rajan (Aishwarya Rai - Bachchan), brings a power plant proposal to set up in rural Maharashtra, before the Nagre`s an insightful Shankar (Abhishek Bachchan) is quick to realize the benefits the power plant can bring to the people. Shankar`s dream project gradually becomes a political minefield, it is in this backdrop the evil forces mightier than ever gang up to bring down the regime of Sarkar and obliterate Shankar`s name from the political horizon.|
Though I never really had much expectation from this movie, it really delivered at some levels. The Background Score, narration, ambiance, and a strong storyline. This movie continues with the journey of Shankar Nagre to becoming a full fledged Godfather (aka Sarkar of Maharashtra, India). The first half of the movie dwells into the deep rooted politics and the problems that it brought along for the Nagre family,giving a feeling that it could proliferate into something massive. Unfortunately, the plot starts to cool down from thereon and does not turn into the same exhilarating second half that the first one had. Direction from Ram Gopal Varma is good in this movie which should be a relief for his fans as his last few attempts did not go down too well with the critics and casual moviegoers alike. Overall, i would say that Sarkar Raj has everything a good movie should have, but just falls short of becoming that extra special. I give it a weak 7 / 10.
