Thalapathy Vijay’s much-awaited movie Sarkar released grandly today. Fans of Thalapathy and regular movie lovers kept high expectations on this movie because Vijay collaborated with Murugadoss for the third time with Sarkar. Their previous film Thupaki and Kaththi were blockbusters, and now, they are aiming strong for the hat-trick.
Sundar Rama Swamy (Vijay) an NRI corporate criminal who made many companies lifeless in abroad. Indian companies surveyed that Sundar is now coming to India to acquire it’s entire corporate world but actually he came India to cast his vote. But his vote was cast illegally by another person, and from then Sundar decides to fight against the election system. It later needs him to fight against the entire government.
The present South Indian superstar Thalapathy Vijay entirely carried this movie on his shoulders. His attitude, swag, and styles were the biggest plus and a treat to watch for the mass audience. It is not just the style, even in emotional scenes he was dominant.
Keerthy Suresh got the regular useless role a heroine gets in Murugadoss’s films barring Ghajini. Actually, Varalakshmi’s role got some importance in the last than Keerthy who is the main female lead. The songs also did not prove to be any relief.
Pala. Karuppiah, a real-life politician cum actor played the antagonist in the movie. He was apt for the part, but despite best efforts by the director to show him menacingly, it did not come across that way. Radha Ravi was good, and he got several one to one scenes with Vijay to leave a mark. Thulasi, Yogi Babu, Prem Kumar and others had brief roles with no real impact.
Music by AR Rahman is not at all up to his mark. Just one song is decent, and Top Tucker is used for the background score. BGM is good overall. Photography is also neat. Special mention to the fight masters Ram-Laxman. They did a fabulous job in composing action sequences.
Thalapathy Vijay’s Performance.
Verdict: One Time Watchable
