This is not going to be a movie review: I thought Sarkar was quite a gheesa-peeta film. (For my non-Hindi-understanding readers, hackneyed.) But there was one moment in the film that jolted me upright in sheer delight. That came when Abhishek Bachchan's character tells a sadhu, who is also a villain, that he doesn't believe in God. There is no rhetorical flourish after it; it is said in a matter-of-fact way, as if it is a trivial matter. I can't remember a Hindi film before this in which the good guy is an atheist. Excellent development.
