Sarkar 3 movie review Highlights: Ram Gopal Varma and Amitabh Bachchan bring the 'Sarkar' alive

Sarkar 3 LIVE movie review: Amitabh Bachchan is back as the Godfather Subhash Nagre in this Ram Gopal Varma directorial. Stay with us for live updates

Amitabh Bachchan, the Sarkar is back and how. The third instalment of the Sarkar series directed by Ram Gopal Varma is all set to release tomorrow and it looks like the fans won’t be disappointed. Apart from Amitabh Bachchan, the movie boasts an ensemble cast including Manoj Bajpayee, Ronit Roy, Amit Sadh, Yami Gautam and Jackie Shroff.

The third instalment of the series starts off from where the second one left off. In this movie, a really strong character is played by Amit Sadh, the grandson of Subhash Nagre and the son of Vishnu (Kay Kay Menon) who was killed in the first movie. Moving from the members of Nagre’s family and other characters of the movie, almost everyone comes with their own shades, most of which are grey.

Sarkar 3 marks the reunion of Big B and Ram Gopal Varma after nine years. The trailer of the movie asserted that no one gets the aura of the Godfather as right as Big B and no one knows how to tell his tale like RGV. The almost a decade long break has only turned out to be fruitful for the franchise as this time the subplots in the movie would keep you hooked.

Telling about his character, Amitabh Bachchan took to Twitter yesterday to write, “‘Zanjeer’, they said is the ‘angry young man’… Strange, on its 44 years of completion, I still play ‘Sarkar 3’, with angrier quotient!” And as it turns out, he is really angry this time and would not let anyone question his position.

Here are the live updates of the movie:

8: 39 PM: Has he ran out of dialogues though? Khel shuru usne kiya hai, khatm main karuga? Why so cliche?

8: 35 PM: Good that RGV has shown the city like never in his previous two films. #AmchiMumbai

8: 29 PM: Oh God, Mr Bachchan. Is there any actor on earth better than him. He’s the best. An acting institution in himself. What a terrific actor!

8: 23 PMFilm has slowed down. And we wish it hadn’t

8: 18 PM: Jackie Shroff has no job. He is utterly underutilised in the film. Despite so many characters, Abhishek Bachchan is being missed

8: 14 PM: RGV’s trust on Amit Sadh seems justified. He doesn’t try to be a hero. Just trying to act well

8: 10 PM: Yami Gautam and Jackie Shroff are nowhere to be seen, which is a disappointment, obviously.

8: 09 PM: Family, truth, betrayal, drama and revenge, Sarkar 3 is all about these elements

6: 49 PM: One thing is for sure, this film’s background music is the real hero

6: 44 PM: Here we are, at Sarkar 3 press show. Real power is not about fear-it comes from respect. The first frame and you hear ‘Subhash Nagre zindabaad’
