In 2005, the Indian film genre of crime and entertaining family drama was shaken up with a new benchmark presented by maverick director Ram Gopal Varma with his blockbuster hit Sarkar. Starring thespian Amitabh Bachchan as the Godfatheresque patriarch of the city aka Subhash Nagre, the film’s stellar success saw a second installment in 2008 with Sarkar Raj, firmly establishing it as one of the most impact franchises of Indian cinema. After more than nine years, the franchise is back with Amitabh Bachchan’s ubiquitous fury, his trademark intimidating stares, highly memorable one-liners, complemented by a crescendo of haunting music!
The trailers have already generated a viral frenzy, trending with conversation and talk on the explosive dialogues and scenes which will be expected on 12th May. Audiences have been longing to see Amitabh Bachchan return to his Angry Avatar, solely responsible for his unprecedented fame and superstardom decades ago, which continues even till today.
Ram Gopal Varma speaks on Sarkar 3, “I believe that Amitabh Bachchan is the only actor who possesses the kind of magnetism and charisma to make a character like Sarkar come alive. I truly believe that anger has been missing in all his films in the last decade which I want to bring back in Sarkar 3.”
Not only does the film feature explosive anger, striking dialogues and a gripping story, but megastar Amitabh Bachchan has sung a mellifluous and soulfully striking Ganapati Aarti for Sarkar 3 which is composed by Rohan Vinayak. The poignant Ganapati Aarti, rendered by the Bachchan baritone, has been shot on the locales of a Mumbai beach, featuring a stunning larger than life Ganeshidol, and the grandiose holy process of immersion-Visarjan.
Joining Amitabh Bachchan is a unique ensemble cast of Indian Cinema’s finest from the veterans to the rising stars: Manoj Bajpayee, Ronit Roy, Amit Sadh, Yami Gautam, Jackie Shroff, Rohini Hattangadi and more are bringing the Sarkar 3 epic to the big screen.
