Indu Sarkar is at its best when it focuses on its protagonist’s emotional struggles and dilemmas, leaving the politics behind. Indu and Navin’s story by itself is far more palatable than the elaborate political schemes surrounding them. Kirti Kulhari shoulders the responsibility of the central role with a lot of earnestness and keeps you interested. Tota Roy Chowdhury makes for a good foil to Indu.

With Indu Sarkar, Bhandarkar drops most gimmicks and turns the page. But he is still far from Page 3

Kulhari works hard at getting into her character, and her earnestness is a good fit. But she’s made to do too much, and the others around her too little. Some balance, and a sharper perspective would have made Indu Sarkar the what-happened-during-the-Emergency-film for this generation.

For that, I’d suggest you reach out for Sudhir Mishra’s hard-hitting 2005 film Hazaaron Khwahishein Aisi.

One is to look it as a propaganda film against the Congress party, aims at showcasing the atrocities inflicted upon various communities during the Emergency. There is a subtle, yet, extremely clear attempt to highlight Muslims forming a major portion of the victims. We have Neil Nitin Mukesh channelling Sanjay Gandhi as the prime minister’s son who is only referred to as the “chief” while the PM is referred to as “mummyji”. The unofficial ban on Kishore Kumar from radio and television after he refused to sing for Sanjay Gandhi also gets a mention in the film.

A nicely narrated story of how common people’s lives were impacted during an emergency. I would recommend watching this one.

3 stars!
