4 Very Good

Indu Sarkar

Indu Sarkar is a slap on the face of the System. Set in the Emergency period, director Bhandarkar has succeeded in narrating a timely n topical tale.The costumes, hair styles, background score n locations seem authentic. Forced nasbandi, ban on Kishore songs, reckless demolition of slums n curtailment of freedom of expression, all are clearly depicted. Neil Mukesh is perfect as "the Chief", who will go to any extent to further his political ambitions. Kirti is very good as the docile wife, who laters turns into an activist. It doesn't matter which party is in power, the aam aadmi is always the victim. Worth watching. Rating 3/5.
