first_imgThe teaser of Sarkar is setting new records with every passing day, and fans of Vijay are mighty excited about the film. Sarkar is the biggest release down South this Diwali. And going by the hype around the Vijay-starrer, looks like the film will set new box office records in K-Town.Starring Keerthy Suresh, Varalaxmi, Radha Ravi and real-life politician Palah Karupaih, Sarkar comes across as a political actioner. After Mersal, AR Rahman has teamed up with Vijay again for this film.But why is Sarkar so special?Take a look at some of the reasons why Sarkar looks like the perfect Diwali blockbuster.SUN PICTURESSun Pictures, a reputed banner in the Tamil film industry that is more involved in film distribution than in production, has bankrolled Sarkar. Rajinikanth’s Enthiran, which hit the screens in 2010, was Sun Pictures’ last production venture. After eight years, the production house is backing this Vijay film. It is common knowledge that Sun Pictures introduced the concept of aggressive promotion in Tamil cinema. Sarkar too is bound to get the same treatment.VIJAY AND POLITICSVijay has never tried to hide his political ambitions. His political desires are more conspicuous now than ever before. At the audio launch of Sarkar, Vijay subtly announced that he also has his eyes set on the throne. He took a subtle dig at the Congress party and the current politicians of Tamil Nadu. Sarkar, which has a lot of political innuendos, might become the starting point of Vijay’s political career.advertisementSUNDAR PICHAIIn a recent interview, AR Murugadoss, the director of the film, announced that the lead character played by Vijay is inspired by Sundar Pichai, the CEO of Google. Talking to a Tamil magazine, Murugadoss revealed that they wanted to meet Sundar before starting the film, but failed to do so. But the director has plans to meet him after the release of Sarkar.VIJAY AND AR MURUGADOSS: CRACKER OF A COMBODirector AR Murugadoss has an impeccable track record in Tamil cinema and is yet to face a failure. In addition to that, whenever he has teamed up with Vijay, he has churned out blockbusters. Both their collaborations Thuppaki and Kaththi are superhits. It looks like Sarkar will also join the list. In addition to that, AR Murugadoss has always brought out an ultra-stylish version of Vijay in his films. In Thuppaki, Vijay’s look and body language turned out to be the biggest reason behind the film’s success. Likewise, in Sarkar, for the first time, Vijay is sporting a different look and it has already become a major hit with his fans.VIJAY’S CHARACTER IN SARKARVijay is playing the role of a ‘corporate criminal’ in Sarkar. AR Murugadoss revealed that Vijay will also have negative shades in the film and he will go through a life-changing moment and will use his corporate gimmicks for a good cause. Contrary to the rumours, Vijay is not playing the role of a politician.ALSO SEE | AR Murugadoss warns Sarkar cast about giving interviews.
