Indu Sarkar

If a political thriller excites you, then gear up to watch ‘Indu Sarkar’! Directed, co-produced and co-written by Madhur Bhandarkar, the movie explores the period of the emergency in India, i.e. the 21-month-long period from 1975 to 1977 and displays the gruesome violation of freedom that was exercised by the then Prime Minister Indira Gandhi and her son Sanjay.

Book your tickets if you want to watch this historical drama. However, before that, read the reviews here:


'Indu Sarkar' is high on the dramatic flourish, low on impact. So insipid is the 139-minute film, it leaves you wondering why on earth it has seen the light of day unless you deign to consider the political purpose that it serves in the current political scenario.

The Times of India

Madhur Bhandarkar seems to be taking calculated baby steps back to the time when he insisted on telling real stories as opposed to making superficial subjects seem real. 'Indu Sarkar' is at its best when it focuses on its protagonist's emotional struggles and dilemmas, leaving the politics behind

Indian Express

'Indu Sarkar' is a prime example of why there cannot be a truly trenchant political film made in India: regardless of the government in power, there is simply no way that an authentic true-to- its-time-and-place film can be made and put out there, because almost all ‘netas’, cutting across party lines, have the thinnest skin, and the ability to take offense at the slightest opportunity.


'Indu Sarkar' is a valuable addition to a slim catalog of films about the excesses of the period even though it lacks the political insights of the better works about the Emergency. Indu’s awakening is a personal one, spurred more by her concern for the children than deepening political understanding. The way Indu Sarkar tells it, the Emergency was yet another smash-and-grab moment, but in reality, it was so much more.
