Sarkar 3


Sarkar was Ram Gopal Varma’s own version of Godfather which had a director’s craftsmanship and great performances which made it a superb film. In Sarkar 2, the quality dropped a little bit but with Sarkar 3 the franchise hits a staggering low. A movie that is pointlessly repeating its first part made me Google it’s run time while I was watching it. Yes, it is that boring.


Subhash Nagre is still the Sarkar. Nagre’s grandson Shivaji returns to the family to join his grandfather. The background and intention of Shivaji creates suspicion and that leads to the drama here. With a company and its project coming in between Nagre and Shivaji, we have a conflict and the movie is trying to capitalize on that.

VIDEO REVIEW




Apart from being the repetition of part 1, this one at times almost feels like a daily soap directed by RGV. Varma who made an impression with his ability to bring in variety is depending too much on the Gangster clichés we know. At one particular area Nagre and Shivaji are sort of claiming themselves as the “Shers” of the city and for viewers that scene sort of offers unintentional comedy. There is no difficulty in understanding the twists here and some of Ramu’s twists are duller than what we would imagine. What is so disturbing by the end is that this movie has such an ensemble cast and yet the film was an excruciating experience.



Amitabh Bacchan is fine in being that lost Nagre who is losing everyone and is still trying to fight it out. Amit Sadh tries his best to be that slightly eccentric next Sarkar, but the performance looks less organic. Manoj Bajpayee comes in the movie as a politician and was good in his typical style. Yamie Gautam has very little to do here. Ronit Roy gets a lengthy role which fails to use his potential. Jackie Shroff shows his usual swag and him and his bikini girlfriend was relief, not just because of the bikini but they brought some light too (The movie is unbearably dark in the literal sense).

The characteristics of almost all the Ram Gopal Varma films except freshness are there in Sarkar 3. A business guy coming to meet Sarkar for a business idea and joining with the rival gang after facing rejection was something that we have seen in the first part and Varma and his writers ponders around the same theme this time. There are multiple characters with various propagandas and none of them look rooted. The lack of layers in the story makes Sarkar 3 almost a tacky TV serial. The weird camera angles and staring silent characters are there in this movie as well. The amount of black in the visuals is so huge that the moment Jackie Shroff’s Dubai scenes come up, it is almost like looking directly at the sun.  The Govinda Govinda background score is very loud and it happens at regular intervals of time, making sure that the viewers are awake.

Ram Gopal Varma’s Sarkar 3 is a pointless sequel that tests your patience. I hope his “company” stop duplicating products and start investing in manufacturing new original products.


Rating: 1.5/5
