Sarkar Raj (2008)
(Released: Jun 6, 2008)
Maharashtra's most powerful and influential family consists of Subhash Nagre (Amitabh Bachchan); his wife, Pushpa (Supriya Pathak); two sons: Vishnu (Kay Kay Menon) and Shankar (Abhishek Bachchan); and Shankar's wife, Avantika (Tanisha). The family face inner conflict when Vishnu departs, never to return. Then, when U.K.-based Anita Rajan (Aishwarya Rai) approaches them for assistance for opening a power plant in Thakurwadi, Subhash initially opposes it as it could displace the local residents. He subsequently relents after Shankar persuades him. The duo travel to meet with Rao Saab (Dilip Prabhavalkar), who welcomes them, but cautions them that they may face opposition from Sanjay Somji. Shankar starts to make presentations, and Sanjay virulently opposes them, leading to riots in the region. The Nagres then find their lives shattered when a pregnant Avantika is killed in a bomb explosion and Subhash suffers a stroke. Will these catastrophes compel them to move away from public life?
