It is in this backdrop the evil forces mightier than ever, mushroom and gang up to bring down the regime of Sarkar and obliterate Shankar's name from the political horizon. Written by
SARKAR RAJ has been filmed exceptionally well too. In fact, SARKAR RAJ has the trademark RGV stamp in every sequence. The review would be incomplete without giving the due credit to writer Prashant Pandey is incredible and almost flawless script. Amar Mohiles background score is topnotch. The by-now-famous 'Govinda' chant in the background only enhances the impact. Amit Roy s cinematography is exceptional. The DoP succeeds in giving the film the raw-n-rustic look, which works very well. Action, in minimal doses, is perfect.
its embellished with superb performances! Amitabh Bachchan, expectedly, comes up with a terrific performance. He is as ferocious as a wounded tiger in the finale and takes the film to great heights. First YUVA, then GURU, now SARKAR RAJ. Abhishek Bachchan is cast opposite the finest actor of this country, yet he sparkles in every sequence. This time, the father and son go neck to neck as far as acting honors go. Aishwarya Rai Bachchan is fabulous and delivers her career-best performance in SARKAR RAJ. Enough has been written about her looks, but not much space has been devoted to her performances. HUM DIL DE CHUKE SANAM, DEVDAS, PROVOKED, GURU, JODHAA AKBAR and now SARKAR RAJ - she's only got better with every film. On the whole, SARKAR RAJ is an exceptional film in all respects
