I had read so many reviews about Sarkar where media people were comparing it with movie The Godfather and also with life of Shivesena leader Bal Thakarey…

I have no idea about both the things, never watched the movie Godfather and not aware about history of sena leader…

But the movie is just awesome, both Bachchans have acted very well and I must say, Abhishek Bachchan is improving day by day and I have already added him in my favorite actors list πŸ™‚ So from now, I am not gonna wait for review of movies which stars Abhishek Bachchan or Amitabh Bachchan…the movie has to be good…

The story is very simple…

Damn, I am very bad at explaining the story…let me get it from somewhere and quote it here πŸ˜‰

Amitabh Bachchan is Sarkar, the Goodfather. A mafiosi leader with a strong NGO streak in him, he’s effectively playing a grizzled, Marathi shahenshah, a man who essentially sits and listens to unjust tales, sending out a righteous army of goons. No immoralities for this soft dictator. He bears a resemblance to Shiv Sena supremo Bal Thackeray, but this is entirely superficial, confined to the rudraksh and the red tika.

Amitabh is incredibly restrained, his character bereft of soliloquy and bluster, and his task is to sit there and look simmeringly angry. This he does pretty darn adequately, and it’s good to see the old man underplay.

Abhishek plays Michael Corleone. Only, in this case, he has been updated to a pink-shirted son studying abroad instead of Pacino’s decorated army hero. In a film touting the young Bachchan as the best thing to happen to acting, he is given surprisingly little room to perform. His character, Shankar, toes dad’s line with zealous loyalty. Which means he sits next to dad and tries to glare and look angry.

I don’t care what other sites are saying about the movie, but if you ask me about it, my answer would be…you must watch it once…. πŸ™‚
