Sarkar is one of my favourite movies, and despite I watched it now for 4th, 5th or 6th time, it still offers me its unique and amazing experience. The movie is inspired by the novel Godfather, and is Ram Gopal Varma’s (RGV) interpretation. It seems like that almost every department in the making of the movie has done a superb job. Its sound design and background score is great, and just advances the story telling. Amitabh Bachchan and Abhishek Bachchan have done good jobs, and Kay Kay Menon is excellent. Tanishaa was also good, and Zakir Hussain has also proven himself. I think that Sarkar will be a memorable movie for almost the actors in the movie in their careers.

It’s amazing how RGV creates such kind of intense atmosphere by using silence, which will be found in the movie. The intense atmosphere also is a result of various elements like the direction, acting, and the great background score as mentioned earlier. You’ll even find this intense tone in romantic scenes as well with great success, which I think just tells how amazing the movie is made. The editing is excellent which gives “right-to-the-point” story telling.

After so many great things with this movie, it’s difficult to understand how RGV made the horrible AAG after this amazing work.

Govinda, govinda, govindaaaaaa
