Sarkar Raj – When good acting and strong writing meet…

Touted as one of the best sequels to have been made in Hindi cinema, Sarkar Raj deserves each and every bit of the appreciation it is getting from critics and movie goers alike. Breathtaking and astounding is how I would describe the performances of the lead actors – Amitabh, Abhishek and Aishwarya. They have not put a foot wrong and one can feel that this will be one of their best movies together. Dilip Prabhawalkar and Sayaji Shinde have excelled in their roles and good actors don’t need lengthy screen spaces to do that. Do they?

The dialogue is so good that even if it is mostly short, every line comes out as a punch line. Amitabh and Abhishek especially use these dialogues to create a strong impact and their curt replies together with their display of emotions in the roles of Sarkar and Junior Sarkar is power packed. Aishwarya Rai has truly come of age with respect to her acting skills and she reveals her true potential. Ram Gopal Verma has handled these three lead characters with appreciable deftness and has managed to extract the very best from them.


The background score is brilliant. Without being too loud and irritating or serving to lessen the impact of the dialogues mouthed, it enhances the emotions felt by the viewer. Without the kind of writing we witness here, this movie would have become predictable. Thankfully and most importantly for good box office returns, the script is impeccable.

There are no distracting songs. The power struggle and the extent of ruthlessness on display will keep the audience glued. There isn’t a single scene that can be deemed unnecessary. Tanisha looks the part and scores in the brief time she gets. To portray Cult following, leader worship, deception, back stabbing and strong determination calls for powerful acting and good direction. The movie delivers on both these counts. It is a must watch for people who appreciate good movies and who don’t need to always see the lead pair running around trees.

Hindi cinema moves one step ahead!
