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 what i thought, its a SUSPENSE movie
6 June 2008 | by napster-530See all my reviews

The new Sarkar Raj sure has RGV's touch to it, Before watching i thought this would be a big disappointment for all 'Sarkar' fans but i was wrong. The movie does not dazzles you but keeps you sit tight throughout, except for the some portions where it gets real slow. you could go out and get popcorns once again :) Performance wise, RGV has dug a lot and got some nice actors for extra roles. some of them are small time soap opera actors but they did well. "Abhishek" and "Amithab" do their best. "Aishwarya" looks smart in formals. Some scenes in the movie are really breathtaking though. Well, the movie is actually full of suspenses thats why i cant say much since i did not mark 'Contains Spoiler' tag. after i finish this review i have to add 'Suspense' in genre of movie. great camera work and background scores are really catchy. the dialogs are supposed to be "legendary phrases", but some of them does not make that sense. In all i thought the movie was gonna blew up like 'RGV's Sholay' but its not that bad. i would go for it.

7 stars from me nirzar
