Director's Cut

Like countless directors all over the world, - some of whom may admit to the fact and some who may not - I have been deeply influenced by Francis Ford Coppola's unforgettable movie 'The Godfather'. It has been my primary textbook of learning, both in technical style and story content.

Yes, SARKAR has been inspired by the classic film, which offers something new on every repeated viewing.

Yet at the same time, I would clarify firmly that SARKAR is not an imitation or a clone. Its story and screenplay have been located in an Indian milieu, and particularly so in the context of Mumbai's power superstructure.

Contrary to media speculation, the title character is not an underworld don. Rather he is a man who has rewritten the law. He has risen, with time and circumstance, to wield unchecked and autocratic authority over the people living in a so-called democratic form of governance.

By nature, he possesses the ability, the charisma, the intelligence and the Machiavellian cunning to control the working of the city, in all its various aspects. He even dispenses justice when the common man cannot obtain it from the law keepers - or the government, police and judiciary.

SARKAR is a volatile film dealing with crime, greed, love, family relationships and retribution.

While acknowledging my lifelong debt to Francis Ford Coppola's 'The Godfather', this is my extremely personal and original take on the Mario Puzo novel, which continues to have a universal resonance.

Finally, I would state that 'Satya' and 'Company' were just preparatory blue prints for SARKAR. With this film, I hope that my trilogy on crime and punishment; within the reality of our country, our city and our neighborhood; has come a full circle.
