SARKAR 3 - Neither the bottle is new here nor the wine served and its also not the case of 'the older-the better'. Strictly Avoidable! (Review By Bobby Sing)

13 May, 2017 | Movie Reviews / 2017 Releases

Once trendsetter director Ram Gopal Varma was written off and declared finished by many reputed film reviewers and trade analysts long back. But I always believed he still had a few probable aces left in his sleeve as a sequel of BHOOT, SARKAR and a remake of one of his recent regional successes to be honest.
Unfortunately BHOOT RETURNS came in 2012 and it didn’t work.
VEERAPPAN (the remake of RGV’s hit KILLING VEERAPPAN) came in 2016 and it didn’t work.
And now SARKAR 3 is here in 2017 which also doesn’t have any worth mentioning merit capable of winning over the box office without any doubt.
So with SARKAR 3, it seems we have lost the director RGV forever, who at present is more active and in elements on Twitter instead of his films which are now being avoided by even the die-hard fans fearing just another dud wasting both their time and money as usual.
No doubt SARKAR 3 has the mighty Amitabh Bachchan, once again ruling the screen as Subash Nagre. But it’s nothing else than brutally wasting an actor like Amitabh, if you are not able to come up with even a single worth mentioning scene in your entire film. Interestingly the list goes on and you get to see names such as Manoj Bajpayee, Rohini Hattangadi, Supriya Pathak, Jackie Shroff, Ronit Roy and Yami Gautam too wasted criminally in their badly executed scenes that actually seem to be taken straight out of one of those Aneez Bazmee films. Amit Sadh does try to make the best of the opportunity grabbed, but it’s truly amazing to see Yami accepting such a miniscule role at this stage of her career as if she has already accepted the defeat and ready to move on to something else soon.
Probably the first RGV film where you don’t even get impressed or fairly engaged by the (unusual) cinematography, (supposedly) innovative lighting, a loud (disconnected) background score and above all the (weird) dialogues that once used to be the director’s major USP.
Giving you the gist, this might be slightly better than his films like SATYA 2, but I don't think such kind of casual third part of the series was even required. Frankly the first RGV and Amitabh Bachchan film in which I took a quick nap between a few repetitive or completely boring scenes post the intermission. And coming from a long time sincere fan of both, I think that should say it all like a detailed review.
However ending with the mention of two appreciable dim lights in this dark thriller, the film has an outstanding Ganpati Aarti sung by Amitabh himself and an amazing fact of simply no catchable difference between the look, feel and mannerisms of a character in 3 different films coming in the long time span of 12 years.
In other words, from SARKAR in 2005 to SARKAR 3 in 2017, it’s unbelievably tough to find any difference in the visual onscreen portrayal of Subhash Nagre by the veteran …………, ironically reminding us of the exceptional director still existing somewhere in the body and mind of an over-confident, big-headed and self-indulgent kind of complex personality.
Rating : 1.5 / 5 (0.5 for the technical crew, 0.5 for the Ganesh Aarti and 0.5 for Amitabh Bachchan alone looking as if coming straight out of a 12 years old film.)
BUT continuing my solo drive against the 'Shameless Increase in Ticket Prices' by the multiplexes, will deduct one star for this spineless act which is neither being addressed by anyone in the industry nor the government since last few years.

NET RATINGS : 0.5 / 5
