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

Can You Solve This ?

I just came to know ALL these products belong to HUL (Hindustan Unilever) and I'm shook

Two years ago my teacher sent the entire class on an assignment as part of our Principles of Marketing subject in which we had to visit different retail outlets and check which company manufactured them. I remember going to one such place with 3 other class mates, with Note Pad open in our phones and discreetly clicking pictures of all HUL products. It sort of felt weird at first because we had never done the picture clicking part before, but slowly got used to it as soon as we realized that the line of HUL products was just never ending. We submitted the assignment the next day and that was the end of the story.


But just yesterday, I opened the HUL website again as part of my semester  VI Logistics subject assignment (yes I do get homework even in TY!). I was surprised by the products that I saw.

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:
