“Emergency mein emotion nahi..mere order chalte hai.” With that being the opening lines in a 2-minute 55-second long trailer, Neil Nitin Mukesh’s persona set a gripping tone for Indu Sarkar’s trailer. Indu Sarkar’s succulent trailer puts light on a lot of things but unearthing the character of Sanjay Gandhi and his role in 1975 emergency has impressed me the most.
Silent and homely in the first half to resolute and adamant in the next, Kirti Kulhari’s character of Indu Sarkar promises a journey full of sparks. The leading lady looks to take a leap after donning some influential roles in Shaitaan and Pink. The film also marks the return of the veteran filmmaker Madhur Bhandarkar after a long exile. Sticking to his idea of filming controversial events and scenarios, Indu Sarkar looks no different.
As the film digs deeper into the 75 emergencies the director promises to rope in a series of twists and turns that could make the story interesting. The acting department looks well ensured with the presence of Anupam Kher in the center of things.
Needless to say, it would be interesting to see the level of controversy that spurs up when Madhur Bhandarkar’s work with one of the most controversial and dementing events of Indian politics hits theaters on 28th July.
