Sarkar 3 – A Doomed Empire – Movie Review
Sarkar 3 is the third outing of Ram Gopal Varma’s Sarkar series. The film was among the much awaited movies of 2017 as it stars Amitabh Bachchan along with ace performers like Manoj Bajpai, Ronit Roy and Jackie Shroff. Ram Gopal Varma always manages to include some gems of performers in his movies, now whether Sarkar 3 is worth a watch or not, that’s in the hands of the audience to decide.
Trailer Sarkar 3:
Sarkar 3 is about an ageing lion and how everyone plans to hit the final nail in the coffin. It is about politics amalgamated with underworld and backed by business lobby – just like any other instalment of Sarkar was. Shivaji (Amit Sadh) is Vishnu’s (Kay Kay Menon) son and grand-son of Sarkar / Subhash Nagre (Amitabh Bachchan); he wants to join the gang of Sarkar but the current loyal men Gokul (Ronit Roy) and Raman are not in favor of this to happen. Govind Deshpande (Manoj Bajpai) supported by business tycoon Vallya (Jackie Shroff) stands against Sarkar to demolish his kingdom. What happens between these characters and how things shape up and turn in to something totally unexpected is what Sarkar 3 is all about.
In Sarkar 3, it is only Amitabh who stands tall in terms of performance else everyone is absolutely wasted. Manoj Bajpai in his capacity is very effective but they again he is one of those actors who can turn out a character of mute with gusto. Jackie Shroff is royally wasted in a character which could have made him deliver another “Parinda” but due to poor dialogues and direction he seemed helpless. An able actor like Ronit Roy as Amitabh’s henchman must have sounded awesome when the role was offered to him but his character is executed weakly giving him less command in the character. Amit Sadh is amateur; he needs to work very hard in order to leave a strong mark, else his career as dependable actor is shady.
If you are not a fan of Sarkar series then you can easily leave this one. You sure won’t miss anything. Sarkar 3 is a feeble film which lacks on good content, creativity and exciting turns; which are needed for such a film.
