Reviewer's Summary - Pathetic|
Actors: Amitabh Bachchan, Abhishek Bachchan, Katrina Kaif
Director: Ram Gopal Varma
Story: Manish Gupta
Producer: Parag Sanghavi, Ram Gopal Varma
Watching Sarkar is Karmic retribution for all the sins of yesteryears.
Truly, the misery inflicted by the makers of Sarkar, a Bollywood adaptation of The Godfather, on the audience leaves all other
pain far behind.
One has to watch the decades-old Godfather (1972) or Scarface (1983) to realize what a small movie Sarkar is. Scarface and
Godfather unleash a kaleidoscopic orgy of ambition, greed, revenge, ruthlessness, love and violence that Sarkar never even
attempts to match.
Sarkar's shallow story line, Abhishek Bachchan's wooden acting and director Ram Gopal Varma's crude rehash of The Godfather
inflict a heavy burden upon the unsuspecting audience.
Amitabh Bachchan as Sarkar, a parallel center of power to the government dispensing justice when the system fails,
disappoints. Al Pacino as Tony Montana, the mouthy Cuban gangster in Miami, and Marlon Brando as the taciturn Don Corleone
have set the bar so high that we can never be satisfied with lesser actors.
Kamal Haasan was also far better as the gangster Velu Naicker in the Tamil film Nayagan.
In the end, Sarkar is a complete disappointment. - Copyright SearchIndia.com.
