Direction: Ram Gopal  Varma
Runtime: 145 minutes

Back with his gangster thriller is Ram Gopal Varma once again attempting to make another hit. Department deals with the dirty politics within the police force. Coming from Ram Gopal Varma, Department boasts of one terrific star cast. Let’s check out the review for more details. Fight between Mahadev Bhosale (Sanjay Dutt) and Shiv Narayan (Rana Daggubati) to emerge as the most powerful figure. While Mahadev, who is a corrupt police officer, heads the team The Department, is very clear about his goals. Shiv, an honest but suspended police officer joins Mahadev’s team. Shiv is initially unaware of what he is getting into and he eventually gets greedy for power. These two policemen become puppets in the hands of Sarjerao Gaikwad (Amitabh Bachchan), an ex-underworld don and a corrupt politician.

Survi Verdict:

Unlike Sarkar RGV’s Department is a concept less effort which is all packed with action & action scenes, nothing more than that. Cinematography is bad, seriously it gives you 3D effects without 3D glasses and even music is awful. Everything about the film Department is frustrating. The only reason one will get to watch Department is for Amitabh Bachchan, he is just too good. Much hyped Nathalia Kaur’s Item number is lame. The other co-actor’s work in Department is un-digestible so if you are going to watch it this weekend, get along with Antacid. Ram Gopal Varma’s Department is a treat for those who have free Money and Time. Exactly, it’s again a torture concept of RGV.  On the Whole, If Justice is their CRIME; Sparing time for Department is our CRIME.

Survi Review: 1/5
