Sarkaar - The Godfather

Both Hollywood and Bollywood have taken inspiration from the same book. There are only minor plot changes. However both have one similarity : Loss and Pain



The Godfather is a popular movie which was released quite a few years ago. The lead role of The Godfather ( Don Vito Corleone) was played by Marlon Brando and Al Pacino played his son Michael Corleone. That was Hollywood.

In Bollywood Sarkaar (Subhash Nagre) was played by Amitabh Bachchan and his son Shankar was played by Abhishek Bachchan. Until now I have read the first Godfather book and seen the first 2 movies of the series.



In Sarkaar, Shankar kills his elder brother Vishnu whom he loved a lot because he tried to kill the father. That killing was important for the family "business". Towards the end of the first movie, all the other competing family heads are killed off in a well executed murder rampage.

A lot of double crossings take place which ends up meaning one thing : No can be trusted.

In both movies, The Godfather's daughter-in-law ; Michael Corleone's wife dies in a failed attempt to kill Michael. She accidentally sits in the car in which Michael is supposed to sit. As soon as the ignition is turned on, the car explodes.

In Sarkaar, Shankar himself dies after an attempt on  his life is made. Later it is revealed that his closest aide Chandar (security head) had a hand in the murder to take revenge at being humiliated because he could not save Shankar's wife due to which Shankar fired him and appointed someone else younger and less experienced than him.

Towards the end of the Sakaar Raj, it is shown that Subhash Nagre has now lost both his sons and daughters-in-law. He calls back Vishnu's wife and his grandchild Chiku. He orders the killing of the puppeteer. The trailer of the next movies shows that Subhash Nagre now has nothing to lose and he is the most dangerous person.

My question is : Is power so important that one should kill or get killed in order to acquire it ? What is the point of having power if you do not have your loved ones with you to enjoy it ?

Below is the link to the video of the third part of the Godfather series in which Michael dies with no one next to him. He has only his dog for company and a dilapidated old building as a backdrop

Sab Ganda Hai, Par Sab Dhandha Hai - Maha Govt Plot Twist

Everyone looks forward to weekends for the simple reason that they get to relax, unwind and recharge themselves for another hectic workweek. But not the Maharashtra Govt. Atleast not this weekend. In between Friday night and Saturday early morning, our State Govt proved to us that if they put their minds to getting something done, they will; even if it involves staying up post their working hours. Hail Politics and Self - Interest!
I guess it's pretty apparent by now what this writeup is going to be about. But no. I won't bore you with that anymore. Instead, I'll include a few links to help you catch up:

Part 1 - Around Goa in 72 hours

Others would ask, “Goa jaake peeya nhi toh kya kiya?”. I, on the other hand would ask, “Goa jaake ghuma nhi toh kya kiya?” Now one would tell you that churches, beaches, drinking and clubbing are the only things to go for in Goa. But that isn’t the case at all. There sure is a lot more to do than just sit in your room or laze around the beach. Especially when you’ve driven 14 hours to reach your destination. Phew.

So what did I do? I took the car (and then scooty; with a GA registration) and drove full North Goa to South Goa. Out of the 1314kms that we drove, 100kms happened within the state in 3 days.
Day 1 we went to Baga beach in the morning but since neither I nor my dad had any plans of getting wet that morning, we headed to Fort Aguada, past Sinquerim beach for some sightseeing.


 This place is around 10kms (30mins) from Baga. It’s up on a mountain/hill and is a famous tourist spot. How’d I know? The number of cars were a lot and it felt like half of the family tourist crowd cam…
