Where did you watch this movie?

This socio-political thriller revolves around the extraordinary personality of Subhash Nagre - a wealthy and influential resident of Bombay. He lives in a palatial house with his wife, Pushpa; sons Vishnu and his wife Amrita and their son; a second son, named Shankar, in the United States. Subhash and his family are thrilled when Shankar returns home, in the company of a gorgeous long-legged young woman named Pooja, whom he plans to marry soon. While Subhash adores both his sons, he shows his open disappointment for Vishnu, whose language, childish actions, and his affair with a Bollywood actress named Sapna are just few of his wrong actions. When Vishnu finds out that a Bollywood actor is attempting to start an affair with Sapna, he angrily guns him down in front of several witnesses. Subhash asks Vishnu to leave the house, and thereafter Vishnu is arrested and charged with murder. Then all hell breaks lose in the Nagre household when a politician named Motilal Khurana is killed, and the killer names Subhash as the person who hired him to do this killing. Subhash is arrested, and held in prison - there is no hope for him in the courts as he has been already been found guilty - not for this killing - but for acting as a power unto himself - a mafia-like Godfather - who metes out justice - when justice fails. How will Subhash react come to terms when circumstances ensure that he no longer is influential and no one will come forward to assist him; Shankar is abducted and disappears. Can Subash still strum up the power to find the culprit?

Trivia:
It is noteworthy that this movie, along with its sequel, Sarkar Raj, which released in 2008, were archived at the American Academy of Motion Pictures library.

This film was premièred at the New York Asian Film Festival.

Lead actress Katrina Kaif's was dubbed by Mona Ghosh Shetty in this movie.

Ram Gopal Verma had signed Amitabh Bachchan for another movie "Ek", he decided to scrap that script and decided to cast both father and son together for the first time in this movie.

The term "Sarkar" (pronounced "sur-kaar") is a title, used in Hindi, to address someone of authority. It is also the Hindi word for government.

Many directors have been trying to get both the real life father and son together in the same movie, finally "Ram Gopal Verma" managed to rope them in together for the first time, even though Bunty Aur Babli (to which the father and son signed much later) was released earlier.
