Vijay’s ‘Sarkar’ in trouble!!

This isn’t the first time.

With less than two weeks to go for the AR Murugadoss – Vijay film ‘Sarkar’ to release, and there’s already trouble in paradise. Writer Varun Rajendran, who filed a plagiarism complaint against the film earlier this year, has filed a case against the team with the Madras High Court now.  He alleges that Murugadoss’ film is a copy of his story ‘Sengol’ and believes that Murugadoss plagiarised the script to make his high-budgeted film.

Incidentally, this isn’t the first Murugadoss is facing plagiarism charges. Back when his film ‘Kaththi’ was slated to release, a filmmaker named Gopi Nainar, who eventually went on to make the blockbuster ‘Aramm’, slapped charges against Murugadoss for stealing his script. He later withdrew his allegations, which lead to ‘Kaththi’ releasing and becoming a hit. Another filmmaker had posed similar allegations against Murugadoss shortly after ‘Kaththi’ was announced.

The film, however, announced this afternoon that it has been given the ‘U/A’ certificate.

The film is a political thriller with Vijay playing some sort of a business mogul in the film, who is still an Indian at heart and implores people to fight for their rights as this government is theirs. In the teaser, 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. The teaser 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.

Keerthy Suresh plays the female lead in this project. Music is by AR Rahman and the film also stars Yogi Babu, Radha Ravi, Livingston, and others.
