'Sarkar 3' Synopsis: Shubash Nagre aka Sarkar (Amitabh Bachchan), finds himself caught in between a web of conspiracies of corrupt politicians, a powerful business & his own grandson, Shivaji (Amit Sadh).
'Sarkar 3' is clichéd film, where nothing unpredictable happens, expect for the ending, which has a nice twist. The narrative is watchable, but it never arrests to a point where you'd root for Sarkar or even be engaged by his villains. P Jaya Kumar's Screenplay sticks mostly to predictability & hence doesn't offer anything new. Ramu's Direction is average. The filmmaker isn't in form this time around. Cinematography is standard. Editing lacks crispness. Art Direction is well-done.
Performance-Wise: Amitabh Bachchan returns as Sarkar & he's alright. The rustiness in his voice, makes it a little hard to understand the dialogue he speaks. Amit Sadh as Shivaji has strong screen presence, but channels Big B a bit too much. Jackie Shroff, in the most ill-written villainous role here, is wasted. Manoj Bajpayee is fantastic & undoubtedly, the show-stealer. The acting giant enacts the corrupt, evil politician to perfection. Yami Gautam is fair. Ronit Roy is as usual. Rohini Hattangadi is hardly there. Others lend support.
On the whole, 'Sarkar 3' is an average fare, at best.
