A classic treat to watch.
This movie brings RGV back on track after quite a few miserable movies. This is a sequel to a 2005 hit Sarkar and it fulfills all the requirement of a great sequel.Besides its strong content, SARKAR RAJ has been filmed exceptionally well too. In fact, SARKAR RAJ has the trademark RGV stamp in every sequence. The review would be incomplete without giving the due credit to writer Prashant Pandey's incredible and almost flawless script. Amar Mohile's background score is topnotch. The by-now-famous 'Govinda' chant in the background only enhances the impact. Amit Roy's cinematography is exceptional. The DoP succeeds in giving the film the raw-n-rustic look, which works very well. Action Allan Amin, in minimal doses, is perfect. SARKAR RAJ is embellished with superb performances! Amitabh Bachchan, expectedly, comes up with a terrific performance. He's as ferocious as a wounded tiger in the finale and takes the film to great heights.
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. Enough has been written about her looks, but not much space has been devoted to her performances. HUM DIL DE CHUKE SANAM, DEVDAS, PROVOKED, GURU, JODHAA AKBAR and now SARKAR RAJ - she's only got better with every film.
Every supporting actor in SARKAR RAJ stands out - Dilip Prabhawalkar was superb, Govind Namdev was first-rate, Sayaji Shinde was perfect, Ravi Kale and Supriya Pathak were OK.Tanisha is alright. The actor enacting the role of Dilip Prabhawalkar's grandson makes a strong impact.
