Review Of The Movie, Sarkar 3
Sakar 3, the 3rd serie in the Sakar franchise opens with Subhash Nagre (Amitabh Bachchan) still in charge but now interacting more with people around him. He still has all his mannerisms though, including causing guests discomfort by avoiding their eyes. His house, however, seems to exist under his dead son’s shadow (Kay kay Menon) whose influence questions his removal.
Potential beneficiaries from Nagre’s demise join forces only to find out that he is intent on wiping them out as well. But he is restricted by a family member on the other side, Chiku (Amit Sadh), his grandson, who together with his friends Annu (Yami Gautam) and Sir (Jackie Shroff) make Nacre and his trusted lieutenant wary.
Manof Bajpayee triggers the bloodbath which is sure to come and the important characters get so mixed up it is difficult to identify which side each is on. Nagre’s life, of course, is in grave danger.
A familiar setup where the twists are predictable although you keep wishing Nagre becomes as emotionally detached as he was in the previous films. His dialogues do not match his personality and he keeps repeating words at odds with his character.
Another flaw is that Nagre has no big adversity to force him to up his game. In fact, his biggest nemesis, Jackie Scroff, is way funnier than he is evil. Some of the props and setting were off as well, like Yami Gautam sitting directly between the sofa and the TV just so the person behind can lean on her.
Sakar’s success comes from Bachchan’s charisma and the ease with which he fits into his role despite some dialogues being out of place.
