Power cannot be given. It has to be taken.

Sarkar Raj is an intense political drama. It is essentially a study of power, exploring the politics of development, and takes a fresh look at the tradition-versus-modernity debate.

When Anita Rajan, CEO of an international firm, brings a power plant proposal to rural Maharashtra, before the Nagres, the insightful Shankar is quick to realise its benefits. After convincing Sarkar, Shankar and Anita go to the villages to mobilise the support of the masses. However, things are not what they seem. From shady fixers with an eye on multi-million kickbacks to wannnabes who are ready to incite millions of people to revolt against the highly controversial project, Shankars dream project gradually becomes a political minefield. Sinister forces gang up to bring down the regime of Sarkar and obliterate Shankars name from the political horizon.
