While we know he is sort of a business mogul in the film, he is still an Indian at heart and implores people to fight for their rights as this government is theirs. He gives a few many lines on taking power and on voting, indicating that he might be a corporate person who looks to politics, or much like ‘Mersal’, he will instigate people to claim their rights and be a messiah of the masses.
The film stars Varalaxmi Sarathkumar, too, as a politician who dresses up in pastel coloured sarees, slick hair buns, and might just be the villain who stands in the way of Vijay’s Sarkar. She is the narrator, too, and can be seen singing praises of the hero.
The film also gives us a glimpse into other characters and other incidents that take place in the film such as snappy press conferences and people burning themselves in public – an ode to the family in Thirunalveli perhaps who burned themselves in public owing threats from loan sharks.
‘Sarkar’s teaser also shows this mighty hero’s love life, focusing on the pretty Keerthy Suresh. While we she does not utter anything, she’s briefly focused on as she plays the romantic interest in spite of not contributing much to the teaser. After the success of leading a film such as ‘Mahanati’, Keerthy is perhaps back to playing the hero’s love interest that neither takes her roles to any significant tangent nor does is it do much to the story, a titular commercial heroine at best.
Music is by AR Rahman but you can barely stand through those desperate guitar riffs. Directed by AR Murugadoss, the film also stars Yogi Babu, Radha Ravi, Livingston, and others.
