The husband of Indu who happens to be a government employee, feels  in exploiting  the state of Emergency to boost  his career, however, a moral and ideological discrepancy found in the movie is seen setting up her on a own path.


The film starts with a montage of several newspaper clipping announcing the dark era of democracy called Emergency. You get to hear a voice over that announces that there is no need to worry for anyone. However, soon you  get to see why the reassurance was seen  merely becoming a farce. In a democratic nation, the very idea of an autonomy itself is weird and strange. Add to that a wide range of atrocities committed in the film can make a horror story of your life. The heartless and curt party leader played by Neil Nitin Mukesh embarks with a five point formula and is seen going to any extent to execute the same which brings the 21 months Emergency. The film’s leading lady Indu Sarkar played by Kirti Kulhari  is an orphan having a stammering problem.

She simply wants to be a poet but soon is seen getting forced to  be a wife. She manages to get a husband with a branded surname. However, she soon realizes the fact that her own husband is now the part of the same government, which the public is seen condemning.  Hence we get to see the struggle between being the dutiful wife and doing what’s right. What will she choose? Well, the second half will tell us that. Well, One might find the film coming up with a fairly irregular account of the 21 months of Emergency with some hurried montages. Interestingly, one can find the party leaders to be overwhelmingly righteous; however, Bhandarkar fails to add political neutrality thanks to his inclination towards the rightists. The other issue is the dialogues of the movie by Sanjay Chhel with most of them remain fantastic lines seems to mar the quality of the film.  Taking about the performances, most of them are somewhere close to average but no one is at par hampering the quality and rating of the film.

Indu Sarkar Review The Last Word 

The film is all about focusing the emotional struggle of a lady keeping the politics at the back end. The story of the couple seems to be more palatable rather than the elaborate political schemes that surrounds them. It can be called as a one time watch for sure.
