This is a watchable, entirely forgettable film, and fans of the original are advised to rewatch that one again.Ramu has concentrated far too much on the angles and the light — both of which succeed only in making you think you’re watching a film without clarity — and not enough on the focus. Sadly, I’m not just talking camera.
First YUVA, then GURU, now SARKAR RAJ. Abhishek Bachchan is cast opposite the finest actor of this country, yet he sparkles in every sequence. This time, the father and son go neck to neck as far as acting honors go. Aishwarya Rai Bachchan is fabulous and delivers her career-best performance in SARKAR RAJ.On the whole, SARKAR RAJ is an exceptional film in all respects. At the box-office, it has all it takes to set new records in days to come!
Ratings: 3.5/5Reviewer:Nikhat KazmiSite:Times Of India
Nothing experimental, nothing new; just a return to the tried and tested form which first raised its head in films like Shiva , Satya , Company , Sarkar ….Yes, you may have your quarrels with the ideology of the film and the validity it seeks to give to outlaws like Subhash and Shankar Nagre, but you will applaud the style and the performances.
