The third and hopefully the last piece of Sarkar series has turned out to be just like the career graph of RGV, spiralling down and dreadfully disappointing .

Just as in case of sequels ,the biggest drawback here is lack of novelty value and constant comparison to earlier parts in terms of cast, dialogues, plot etc.

The story here is pretty similar to Sarkar 2 with Subhash Nagre holding on to his ethics against politicians and land mafia. The rest of the characters are all new including his grandson played by Amit Sadh, Manoj Bajpayee as political rival, Ronit Roy as his hench man, Jackie Shroff as a business man and Yami Gautam too.

Abhishek is sure to get some royalty amount for his portrait on prominent display in most of the frames with Amitabh .We almost not missed him at all 😉

Absolutely no work has been done to add the novelty value to the already existing story line. The dialogues are the worst part of this movie whereas we can’t help but compare that they were the stronghold in the earlier parts.

Sadly, none of the able star cast was able to leave a mark. People like Manoj Bajpayee and Ronit Roy too end up looking either tied up by the dead pan screenplay or hamming away to glory with silly dialogues.

Amitabh being Amitabh manages to hold fort as much as he could in spite of the boring long dialogues and Vijay Dinanath Chauhan-esque baritone. There was too much of “seen-it- before” kind of feeling all the time.

Amit Sadh and Yami show glimpses of the good work they are capable of but could showcase nothing great here.

In this story which claimed to have an angrier Subhash Nagre, you only see a lonely old man completely devoid of the power he exuded earlier. We terribly missed the excellent ensemble cast ( like his hench men and his political rivals in part 1). The camera angles and the cinematography style seemed very repetitive just as the background score which failed to weave a magic this time.

Though it’s always a gamble to hope for anything great from RGV considering the maverick he is, there’s always a hope because we can never get over some of his brilliant works like Satya and Company, Sarkar and Bhoot. But I guess he’s completely lost it now. I wish he had spent more energies penning the screenplay instead of twitter.

Score 6 on 10 ( 1 exclusively for the most revered man of Indian Cinema )
