Sarkar, the Thalapathy Vijay starrer has had loads of expectations bestowed on it and rightly, it has many a specialties associated with it. In fact, there were umpteen reasons for which the audiences have been eagerly waiting for the big arrival. Finally, the Thalapathy Vijay starrer has made an entry to the theatres to make the Diwali season a special one for the movie audiences. Has Sarkar lived up to the expectations and the promise? Read Sarkar review here to get the answer.
The plot of Sarkar revolves around Sundar Ramasamy, who is the CEO of one of the top most IT companies. He is termed as a corporate giant and one day, he makes a visit to India. It is revealed that he has come to the country to cast his vote for the elections. But, he gets to know that someone else did cast a vote under his name. He questons the same and what happens rest has been narrated in Sarkar.
Sarkar's storyline, much like that in the previous films of the director, has a socially relevant topic to offer. It does enlighten the audiences about the fake voting system and also further underlines the importance of casting a vote. Interestingly, Sarkar is different from the Vijay-AR Murugadoss movies from the past, especially in the way of treatment.
In Sarkar, the number of sequences that are just meant to please the commercial tastes are lesser. The script of the film has been carefully written and here, most of the sequences are in line with the core plot of the movie. Even the romantic sequences have a limited space and they don't look artificial at any point of time. Yes, the film does have its own share of mass sequences, especially in the first half of the movie and they do hit the right chords. It is in the first half of the film that the audiences get to see the mass and stylish moments. In the second half, the film becomes more intense with the socially relevant them taing the front seat.
AR Murugadoss has dared to challenge and question the existing systems and has tried to enlighten the people. The intent of the film-maker needs a special applause and he has embedded this socially relevant things nicely into the movie. Moreover, the film is not just about Vijay's character and even the antagonists gets the same due importance in the movie. For the fans, he has given a reminiscence of some of the punch sequences from Vijay's previous movies. At the same time, the film-maker could have toned down the dramatic moments in some of the portions. the action sequences are good but at the same time, they didn't have the innovation that was an important part in movies like Thuppaki and Kaththi.
Thalapathy Vijay is in top form as the lead protagonist and he looked stylish in most of the frames. More importantly, the actor in Vijay takes the front seat in Sarkar and there are umpteen moments in the film that showcases his excellent range as an actor. Keerthy Suresh plays Nila and she did her part pretty well. Varalaxmi Sarathkumar's character gets due importance in the second half of the movie and she was simply stunning. Radha Ravi as Randu has portrayed his character effectively. Pala Karuppiah, who appears in a crucial role, has done his part pretty well. Yogi Babu didn't have much to do other than in his introduction scene, in the first half of the movie.
AR Rahman weaves magic as usual with his songs as well as the BGM. Oru Viral Puratchi song gels so well with the movie and has a crucial role in conveying the right emotions to the audiences. The Top Tucker song too raises the momentum of the mass sequences. The BGM too is nothing short than phenomenal. Girish Gangadharan has done a wonderful job in the cinematography department. Editing by Sreekar Prasad is perfect.
Sarkar is not just a film meant for the fans to celebrate. It has a broader angle and the movie enlightens and envisions the people as well. Definitely, a very good entertainer that doesn't lose the focus from its good intent.
