Sarkar box office collection Day 9: Vijay starrer continues to sail smoothly

Despite the many controversies surrounding South star Vijay’s latest release Sarkar, the movie has been setting the box office afire with its mind-blowing numbers. Sarkar has managed to cross the landmark of Rs 200 crore, worldwide.
However, the film itself received mixed reviews across the board. The Indian Express’ film critic S Subhakeerthana gave the movie two-and-a-half stars and said the movie was not as engaging as one might have expected it to be.
“I wonder why Keerthy Suresh (Nila) was even cast in the film. She has nothing to do, but aimlessly roam around wherever Vijay goes. After watching her in Mahanati aka Nadigaiyar Thilagam, I wonder why she did Sarkar. It’s not about the commercial film template, but the character. On one side there’s Keerthy, and the other side, we have Varalaxmi Sarathkumar (Komalavalli aka Paapa) who steals the show. Genuinely, I think the makers could have introduced more of her character in the first half. But, she’s abroad, advising her politician-dad (Pazha Karuppiah) on the phone and vanishes. A few scenes in Sarkar reminded me of Ramana. Comparisons are inevitable — because of the same director. But hey, if only Sarkar was half as engaging as Ramana,” a section of her review read.
Sarkar has taken the international box office by storm after scoring big numbers in countries like UK, Australia, New Zealand and France. On its first day itself, Sarkar collected Rs 30 crore. It won’t be surprising if the movie manages to mark its place in the Rs 300 crore club as well.
