Indu Sarkar Movie
Indu Sarkar Movie: The film is mess of political and personal aspirations
Considering the past record of director Madhur Bhandarkar, his experiment with Emergency period proved to be a fused bomb. Indu Sarkar created ripples in the Indian polity and the director has to approach the highest court of the country for legal protection for screening the movie. But what was thought to be an earthquake proved to be nothing.
The movie opens with announcement of Emergency
The audiences are taken right to the Emergency era with radios and loudspeakers blaring with announcement of Emergency. Newspaper reports also confirm implementation of Emergency in the country. When the stage is set, the audiences are taken to a village Mubipura situated on Delhi-Haryana border. There is a wedding going on in the village when suddenly cops arrived to sterilize the males. A septuagenarian and a teenager question the futility of government order of making males impotent.
Indu Sarkar is the central character of the movie. Indu (Kirti Kulhari) is a budding poet but she’s persuaded to marry and settle down like other women of her age. She marries Navin Sarkar (Tota Roy Chowdhary) and becomes Indu Sarkar. She becomes a housewife but her husband is a power hungry person who’s always running after money. Rest of the movie is the story of Indu Sarkar becoming the voice of the masses against the emergency rule.
Impressive star cast fails to impress the audience
Despite having a strong star cast and strong direction, the film lacks the force needed to catch attention of discerning media and the audience. Also the story is too weak to handle a sensitive subject like Emergency. At times, it feels as if Indu Sarkar is doing everything to get rid of her husband. If she’s representing the mass then she shouldn’t be worried about her family life. What could be said about the movie is that it used Emergency only as a backdrop and not as a subject.
Indu Sarkar First Look & Poster
It is an interesting poster as it has politics, violence, treason and suspense and everything that makes a good movie.
