Storyline

When Anita Rajan, CEO of Sheppard power plant, an international Company, brings a power plant proposal to set up in rural Maharashtra before the Nagres, insightful Shankar is quick to realize the benefits the power plant can bring to the people. After convincing Sarkar who is against it for various reasons, Shankar undertakes a journey along with Anita to the villages of Maharashtra to mobilize support from the masses. However, things are not what they seem to be and Shankar's dream project gradually becomes a political minefield. 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.

Not only entertaining....but enlightening also!
9 June 2008 | by (Hong Kong) – See all my reviews

I personally really liked the movie.

True, it may not have been as fast-paced or powerful as the first one, but it definitely leaves an impact, and a big one too. I not only enjoyed every minute of this movie, but learned a lot from it too.

The background music was good, it suited the scenes and the genre and the religious temperament of Subhash Nagre, who after all IS the protagonist. Everything eventually, does revolve around him. Dialogues were amazing. So what if they were philosophical and unrealistic at times? They were meaningful and thought-provoking. I have to admit, even after the movie and during dinner with my family, I was pondering over some of Subhash Nagre's words. I especially loved the dialog "There is very thin line between profuse loyalty and betrayal." Honestly, it made a lot of sense and got me thinking about something I had never realised. Whoever wrote the dialogs deserves special praise! I think they were one of the film's strongest aspects.

Of course, in order to give justice to notable dialogs, you need apt actors who can deliver them perfectly. And thank goodness, the dialogs don't go to waste! Big B, Abs and Aish were all top-notch in this movie. They proved themselves, once again, to be one of the finest actors in the film industry. They also proved their versatility because their roles were definitely not easy and very different to other roles they had taken on in the past. Everything about them was perfect...no criticisms or complaints! The story and plot were interesting and although the pace may have slackened at various points, I would not regard it as one of the film's (if there are any), minus points. I think the slow scenes were a much needed contrast to the fast and violent scenes that the film comprised of otherwise. They made the audience realise that the characters in the film, no matter how heroic or powerful they may be, are humans, with emotions and moments where they simply need to be with each other and express themselves. It added a realistic and human touch to the film. The twists and the climaxes were extremely well executed and definitely had the intended effect on the viewer. All the characters and situations in the film contributed to the happening of the twists and climax brilliantly. Nothing made me question - but how can that happen...or why did that happen? I was satisfied and convinced throughout.

Overall, Sarkar Raj was a remarkable piece of cinema that will have a deep impact on the audience, and although you may not want to watch it again, it will take longer than you think to escape your mind
