Sarkaar is a Kannada language film; Manju Preetham has directed the movie.


The hero Shobharaj comes down to Bangalore and gets entangled with a Don. He valiantly faces the don of the film with his team. There he meets a girl that he likes, and does good deeds to get the girl fall in love with him. The girl is a doctor, but the hero is a simple uncouth. The film explores and pushes on the boundaries of a relationship. Can love and relationships withstand rudeness?


This movie has no connection with the Bollywood film Sarkar. The movie has been shot in Hubli, Sadodi Falla, Udupi, and Bangalore. The film explores how relationships work. The message given by the movie is that when a person turns his back on everything, the kinship comes and helps him. Though, the film works on a whim. Most of the time we cannot say what is going to happen. The movie has all the elements of becoming a good crime film; a good hero and his team, an influential don, a corrupt police officer, and a doctor who becomes the love interest of the hero, but the debut director has gone the tried and tested way by introducing characters in a storyline that have been explored before with better results. The story is very unoriginal, and feels like it has been seen all before. Shankar Mahadevan has composed most of the songs, and they are surprisingly good. All the other elements in the movie are a letdown. The cinematography is average, but the editing is so inferior that we can sit and point out all the faults. The script and the screenplay were not very well revised.

Star Performance

The acting by the cast is too over the top. The lead characters showcase very stiff dialogues and overdramatic acting skills. Ugram Manju is portraying the hero Shobharaj, and Yamuna plays the mother of the hero. The supporting cast is no better. None of the performances stand out in this movie.

What’s there?

1. Good songs overshadow the movie.

2. Romance.

What’s not there?

1. A very unoriginal script.

2. Poor screenplay and direction.

3. Weak cinematography and editing.


Watching the movie is entertaining only if you like broken records that play the same thing over and over again.
