Sarkar 3 Review
Ram Gopal Varma, who has been struggling to find his lost form in Bollywood for some time, is relying heavily on Amitabh Bachchan’s charisma to rise and shine again. And as far as the performance of Big B is concerned, he seems to get some amount of relief for a moment. To set the tone right, Varma has used a similar background score and lighting to that of the first two films. Of course, Subhash Nagre’s get-up will also be the same.He has also brought in some top actors like Manoj Bajpayee, Ronit Roy and Jackie Shroff to flesh out his screenplay effectively. If Bajpayee is playing an idealist rebel in the film, Ronit Roy will be replacing Chander (Ravi Kale) as Sarkar’s most trusted ally.
Amit Sadh and Yami Gautam are also in the film and they are expected to carry the Sarkar legacy forward. However, the most striking thing about this film is its announcement that Amitabh Bachchan will be seen in an angrier, meaner avatar. In fact, he says that he hasn’t changed over the years. But all said and done, Sarkar 3 is probably Varma’s last shot to reclaim his space in Bollywood as the most sought after noir filmmaker. With the ensemble cast including big names like Rohini Hattangadi, Jackie Shroff and Manoj Bajpayee, there seems to be a lot to watch out for in the film. Yami Gautam seems to have finally got an image makeover and for a change, she leaves an interesting trail regarding her character in the film with her glimpse in the film.
Sarkar 3 Review – last word
Of course, it is impossible to imagine Sarkar without the famed ‘Govinda’ track and so that’s another winning point of the film. Though the film seems okay in terms of performance and the script yet it would heavily depend upon the way the audience would like the film.
