Madhur Bhandarkar’s latest movie Indu Sarkar is set during the Emergency period in 1975.
From the looks of the trailer, it seems like there will be two crucial aspects to the movie. In one, Sanjay Gandhi, played by Neil Nitin Mukesh, takes on a tyrannical attitude and vows to destroy anyone who challenges the Congress government.
The other revolves around Kirti Kulhari, a simple housewife who turns a revolutionary after her husband (played by Tota Roy Chowdhury) refuses to see the fallacies of the government and the atrocities it's committing. She joins a rebel force and takes on the Indira Gandhi-led government.
It’ll be interesting to see how the Congress party will react to Indu Sarkar, a movie that’s not going to take a kind stance on the actions of their celebrated leader and her son.
