Sarkar Movie Review

Movie: Sarkar

Rating: 2.5/5.0

Writing and Direction: AR Murugadoss

Behind the Scenes:
Ilayathalapathy Vijay and AR Murugadoss delivered as a stunning film like Katti which was later remade in Telugu as Khaidi No 150 which emerged as a huge blockbuster. Vijay and ARM are coming back once again now with a film called Sarkar, a Political Drama.  Let us see how Sarkar is received by the audience:
Storyline:
Sundar Ramaswamy (Vijay) is a Rich NRI who comes to India to cast his vote but only to realize that someone did that. He files a case demanding the Voting Right and also to conduct fresh election in the state which does not go well with the Opposition Party who come after him. Later, Sundar decides to contest himself in the elections and what happens later in the political journey forms the rest of the story.

Star Shine:
Vijay is excellent in the role of an NRI and also performs well in the emotional scenes. Murugadoss delivered some stunning mass elevation scenes which will delight the fans. Keerthy Suresh looked good but gets a role without much substance. Varalaxmi Sarath Kumar is superb as a lady politician. The scenes between her and Vijay are canned very well. Radha Ravi is excellent as the cunning politician.
Technical:
Murugadoss made the film keeping in mind the fans of Vijay. The actor is showcased in a stunning manner in the first half but things go wayward in the second half with too much predictability and improper narration with boring scenes. AR Rahman disappoints big time in this films. The songs are disappointing and the background score is okay. Editing has been disappointing while dialogues are good. The camera work is good and the production values are excellent.
Analysis:
Sarkar has an okay first half but only in parts. It is more about how Vijay comes down to vote and later fights for the right. Some sequences of Vijay taking the opposition are showcased well. But then, Murugadoss totally missed the trick in the second half. The proceedings become very predictable and there are some boring scenes as well. The climax is also disappointing with the duel between Vijay and Varalaxmi Sarath Kumar fizzes out. The film may work with the Tamil Audience to some extent only for Vijay, Telugu audience may reject it totally.
