Indu Sarkar review from other sources

NowRunning.com 1.5/5

Set during the emergency, a dark period in recent Indian politics, this is the story of an orphan who has a speech impediment. The film wanders directionless, starting out as a propaganda film showing the Congress as evil, then not knowing where to take the rebellion. Pointless exercise.

On the whole, INDU SARKAR boasts of a captivating drama with post-interval portions packing a solid punch. At the box office, it’s success will depend on the word of mouth from the audiences.

NDTV 1.5/5

Bollywood has never been great with political cinema. Even by those lax standards, Indu Sarkar is the pits. It is high on dramatic flourish, low on impact. So insipid is the 139-minute film, it leaves you wondering why on earth it has seen the light of day unless you deign to consider the political purpose that it serves in the current political scenario. It's hard to find a purely cinematic reason for its existence.

Indu Sarkar is at its best when it focuses on its protagonist's emotional struggles and dilemmas, leaving the politics behind. Indu and Navin’s story by itself is far more palatable than the elaborate political schemes surrounding them. Kirti Kulhari shoulders the responsibility of the central role with a lot of earnestness and keeps you interested. Tota Roy Chowdhury makes for a good foil to Indu. With Indu Sarkar, Bhandarkar drops most gimmicks and turns the page. But he is still far from Page 3.

Indu Sarkar opens with the declaration of Emergency but its true beginning-point is a disclaimer proclaiming it as a work of fiction bearing nothing more than a chance resemblance to people, places, and events. I found that disclaimer to be less of a mandatory insert and more an apology for the film's artlessness.

Indu Sarkar dares to step into murkier waters but fails to save itself from drowning due to the heavy melodramatic content. There's a line in the film where Indu bursts out, "Jab sab chup hain, koi toh chikhega." Unfortunately, Madhur's film fails to be that scream!
