Bollywood even after carrying a lot of aura and charisma around its’ vicinity have been a subject of criticism. If there are people who are die-hard fans of Bollywood, then there are people who put their untiring effort in criticizing as they feel that we are still not advanced as compared to Hollywood. Their concerns are understandable as we have already set a very high benchmark of our success. Then, how can we bear the pain of silly things? Those silly things which not only put a question mark on the quality of Bollywood films, but also the loyal audience feel disillusioned who have a very high expectation from the B-town. A movie buff like me sometimes feel disappointed when we find that the movie has been titled with 2nd or 3rd sequel of the original name that has no connection with the first movie. My all these predicaments and prejudices got to an instant halt when I got to know that Ram Gopal Varma’s Sarkar 3 has been released. Then it was almost impossible for me to have a spectacle at the 3rd part of the Sarkar sequel starring the millennium star Amitabh Bachchan, the unparalleled beauty, Yami Gautam and one of the most powerful actors of the Bollywood, Manoj Bajpayee & Jackie Shroff along with Ronit Roy and Amit Sadh.
My Mindset Before Movie
Since I have seen the first part of the Sarkar, I was really an expectant about this movie. Hence, without wasting any further free time of mine, I decided to watch the further happenings which were going to unravel in the Sarkar’s house after the death of his younger son.
Screening of Movie
As the camera rolled into action, the very first monologue from Subhash Nagre (Amitabh Bachchan); “Wo log jo ham pe ungli utathe hai, unse ja kar kah do ki wo apni tahzeeb, apna riwaz apne pass rakhe. Kaam aayega unke!” was enough to remind me that it is not going to be one of the lots. It forced to me to ponder upon the current situation of our society, where men in power are trying to force their own baseless ideologies on us. Those persons who have nothing to do with the benefit of the common masses are trying to be our Messiah for the fulfillment of their own dark motives. Then only the words of Gokul Deshpande (Manoj Bajpayee) seem appropriate when he says; “Is Sarkar ka ek hi mantra hai: Ram Naam Japna, paraya maal apna”. Indeed! It is pitiful for a country on the road of development to strategize themselves on the religious and spiritual beliefs of the common masses rather than being a torch-bearer.
Words Still Worth
It seems quite ironical that a country where politics have been involved with people like Mahatma Gandhi and Pandit Nehru have made us accustomed to see the political upheaval. Even almost after seven decades of our independence we have been forced to vote for those corrupt politicians who have been already been on the wrong side of law. Is it a failure of our political system or we have accepted this per se, as Subhash Nagre says; “Daldal hai ye rajneeti, gandi daldal” or we should take the advice of Gokul on a serious note when he says “Agar aap Gandhi ki murti ki pooja kar rahe hai to gundo ko poojne ki parampara band honi chahiye!” Sometimes these things seem logical and sensible, but whenever we look on our current system, which is on a constant downfall, we feel not only disillusioned but also consider it impossible to change. We are normal human beings and we have been conditioned to follow a mediocre path as even Michael Vallya (Jackie Shroff) says; “Jo ussulo ke raaste pe chalte hai, unke dost kam hote hai, dushman jyada”. As youngsters we will have to understand a simple fact that our words have worth when it is applied in the practical life, not being just blabbered in college seminars and competitions in order to collect accolades and medals.
Betterment Demands Bravery
There would be not a single person in this world who wouldn’t have aspired for his betterment, but we hardly care for the efforts needed in order to create the effect. Especially when we are talking about the society as a whole we need to understand that we would have to be brave as Subhash Nagre says “Har Acchai ki koi nirdharit keemat hoti hai. Wo chahe paisa ho, gyan ho ya phir dard ho. Dard ki keemat chukani padti hai”. At the time when we are feeling disgusted about politics due to its’ malignant nature, we need to understand in his words only; “Rajneeti utni bhi kharab nahi hai jitna log usse samajhte hai. Usse samajhne ke liye pahle ghar ki rajneeti samajhni jaroori hai. Angrezi me usse palace politics kahte hai”.
The Concluding Words
It may be commercially successful or may not be; which I hardly care as this move has the potential to guide our political system on a better path as Subhash Nagre himself says;“Anth me wohi sahi hota hai jo samaj ke liye, janta ke liye sahi ho!”.
