They reduce the gravitas of the eponymous character like Sarkar played by none another then Amitabh Bachchan into a helpless spectator who utters lines like "mein kuch nahi kar paya", "yeh sab natak tha" leaving all the action to be done by Amit Sadh.
Megastar Amitabh Bachchan is back again as Sarkar in the third movie from the series directed by filmmaker Ram Gopal Verma. Yes, Amitabh Bachchan certainly earns a star for his performance, but the half goes to whoever figures out why "Darling" needed to be in the film. He is still surrounded by enemies in the form of a Kejriwal-like politician (Manoj Bajpayee) and a Dubai-based sleazy business magnate (Jackie Shroff), along with their cohorts. Why she does that, no one cares because you're grinning over her wanting to be "Sarkarni". When that chant showed up in Sarkar the original film, the audience loved it, because it turned the college graduate Shankar into Sarkar, In this film of all the double crosses crammed into the second half, the film collapses into one enormous nought.
If you have been following the Sarkar franchise, you wouldn't want to miss this one. You and he together make a lethal acting combo in any film. Amit Sadh must have portrayed his meatiest role so far and has portrayed Shivaji Nagre very well. Unfortunately, the actor has neither the screen presence of becoming the next Sarkar nor the brashness of his father, Vishnu's (Kay Kay Menon) character, to hold your attention.
There was much hype about how Yami Gautam had been cast in a role that is a complete antithesis of what she has played before but truth be told she spends much time staring menacingly with her kohl-lined eyes and doing zilch. Bachchan continues to delight even as he gets older. SARKAR 3 is in bad "company" of bland Cheeku's, comic Bhiku, a bearded weird Biddu, a insane camera and so on.
Other than these dramatic pauses which indeed bring on some exciting highs in the interview, hence resulting in it bringing on many unpredictable moments, there are various other facets of Amitabh Bachchan that you get to witness in the film. The one who gives him tough competition for the best ham award is Rohini Hattangadi as Govind's ever drinking mother.
Typical RGV antics prevail here and so if the camera angles and the sepia tone are not enough to give you the feel, there's also his obsession with bikini clad ladies with the camera focussing on the thigh shots. Like whenever you looked up, straight into the camera and we knew that something is being cooked up in your head, with the music of 'Govinda, Govinda....' in the background, I felt myself coming on the edge of the seat.
