Vijay’s Sarkar released today across the globe amidst high expectations from his fans and followers.

The movie is banking on the successful combination of Vijay and AR Murugadoss. Read the full review to check whether Sarkar is up to the mark.


Sundar(Vijay) is a corporate CEO who comes to India during the election period. He faces a big shock as he cannot his utilize his vote. Sundar starts figuring out the whole back drama behind this, and that lands him in many troubles.

What will Sundar do to cast his vote? What are it’s consequences? Can he overcome all of these challenges? These answers should be watched on the big screens.


Vijay gave one of his best performances in his career. He looks stylish, and his mannerism perfectly suits that of a new-age politician. He provides the film with his 100%, and this is a big threat to his fans.

Keerthy Suresh gets a small role, but she impressed with her stunning on-screen presence. Her chemistry with Vijay is really good, and that can help the movie.

Varalaxmi Sarathkumar gets a meaty role, and her strong body language emulates the role well.


Murugadoss picked a strong political script for this movie and tried to add his own spin to it. But he misses the target by a margin as things go wayward after a point. Many scenes look like they were simply forced in.

Music by AR Rahman is a treat, and his background score is simply impeccable. The first two fights in the movie were taken to a whole new level with the background music.

Production values by Sun pictures are top-notch. Every single penny spent on the movie is clearly visible on the big screen. A lot of credit goes to the production department.

Final verdict:

Sarkar is a strong political drama which a decent premise but the weak narration is a big minus to the film. However, good performances from Vijay and Keerthy Suresh can help the movie in the B&C centers. The movie may perform well over the weekend, thanks to the Diwali holidays season.
