Indu Sarkar Box Office Collection Day 1: Madhur Bhandarkar's Film Performs 'Poorly'

SC says a film needs 'a little drama', refuses to stay release of Indu Sarkar

The film has released at the same time as Anil Kapoor-Arjun Kapoor's Mubarakan.

They had warned that if the film was found to be distorting historical facts aimed at maligning prominent Congress leaders, party activists would take to the streets.

The Supreme Court of India has refused to stay the release of the movie "Indu Sarkar".

"The country passed through a bad phase during the Emergency". Taking to Twitter after watching the movie, trade analyst and movie critic Taran Adarsh called it a captivating drama and added that Madhur Bhandarkar - who had given Bollywood's epics like Page 3 and Fashion- has returned to form with this flick.

BJP general secretary Kailash Vijayvargiya, in a tweet, said he is going to watch the political thriller with his family members in Indore. The cast of the movie includes Neil Nitin Mukesh, Kirti Kulhari, Anupam Kher, Tota Roy Chowdhury, and Supriya Vinod.

The film was screened in Mumbai, Thane, Pune, Nagpur, Aurangabad, Kolhapur and other cities with tight police security to prevent any untoward incidents.

As the film released on Friday, the party workers stalled its screening at some theatres and multiplexes in Thane, Nanded, Nashik and Jalgaon districts. This forced the police to disperse them.

The belligerent activists even climbed on the stage near the screen and shouted slogans even against the Bharatiya Janata Party governments in Maharashra and at the Centre.

The movie is set against the backdrop of the Emergency, a 21-month period between 1975-77 when Indira Gandhi suspended the constitution, allowing herself to rule by decree. However, the theatre had been kept shut by the owner since midnight, the official said.
