Indu Sarkar trailer: Kriti Kulhari takes on Emergency in this Madhur Bhandarkar film

June 16th, 2017 | by Manisha Surange

National Award-winning filmmaker, Madhur Bhandarkar has come up with a film that is a completely new cinematic experience. The trailer of Indu Sarkar is out, Madhur is presenting his most political movie until now. The film is set in the 1975 Emergency, the 21-month period from when Prime Minister Indira Gandhi unilaterally had a state of emergency declared across the country. And as the trailer is ready to “Witness a black chapter of Indian history.”

From what the trailer suggests, the film looks like the story of the general public who for no fault of theirs were made to suffer. After the water reaches the brim, one of the women, Kriti Kulhari decides to raise her voice and the one to support her is Anupam Kher. On the other side is Neil Nitin Mukesh who plays Sanjay Gandhi in the film and his formidable mother. Not that Kriti’s character cares as she is forced to give up her children. As she says in the trailer, “Arjun ke iraade hil sakte hain, ghayal Draupadi ke nahi.” The strong onscreen presence of Kriti reminds us of her last film Pink.

Several splendid dialogues in the two-and-a-half minute trailer might shake you from within. The fact that it is ‘inspired’ by true incidents is another reason why you should wait for this film to release. From forced vasectomies to slum clusters being raised, everything is depicted in the trailer.

Neil Nitin Mukesh will be seen as a politician quite well and as we hear him say, “Emergency mei emotion nahi mere orders chalte hain.” Supriya Vinod will be playing the former Indian Prime Minister Indira Gandhi in the movie.

The film is an important one for Madhur Bhandarkar since his last directorial Calendar Girls and Heroine did not do well in the thetares. Indu Sarkar also stars Tota Roy Chowdhury in an important role. The music of the movie is composed by Anu Malik and Bappi Lahiri who have joined hands for the first time.
