A dig on the glorious history of Indian National Congress was a bold move from Madhur Bhandarkar's side when he decided to make Indu Sarkar basing on the 1975 Emergency times by ditching his trademark Page 3 and Fashion style.

It was a gamble and it seems that in just 283 screens for the release, he is managing to make the most out of it. Indu Sarkar has got a 10 to 15% opening and managed to collect Rs. 4 crores on the first day at box office. The film is getting shows canceled in places because of the ruckus created by Congressmen but still, the movie has managed to show the reality of 1975 emergency times to the masses and is getting a positive word from the critics even after 14 cuts by CBFC.

Indu Sarkar is a period film based on the 1975 emergency where we are going to unravel the other side of the story. Not the story we have learned in our text books but the story of the other side, the story from the eyes of a rebel. The movie stars Kirti Kulhari in the titular role of Indu Sarkar, Anupam Kher as Nanaji, Neil Nitin Mukesh as Sanjay Gandhi, Tota Roy Chowdhary as Naveen Sarkar and Supriya Vinod as Indira Gandhi.

It will be crucial to see how the movie will perform on the weekend as of now they have managed to hang on the thread somehow with the first-day collection.
