Sarkaru Vaari Paata (transl. Government’s bid)[5] is a 2022 Indian Telugu-language action drama film[6][7][8] written and directed by Parasuram. It is produced by Mythri Movie Makers, 14 Reels Plus and G. Mahesh Babu Entertainment and stars Mahesh Babu, Keerthy Suresh and Samuthirakani. The film follows a conflict between Mahi, a financier and MP named Rajendranath, after his daughter Kalaavathi cons Mahi for her gambling debts.

The film was announced in May 2020 with a formal launch ceremony taking place in November 2020. Principal photography begun in January 2021 in Dubai and later also took place in Hyderabad, but was put on hold in April 2021 due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Filming resumed in July 2021 and took place in Goa and Spain before ending in April 2022. The film score and soundtrack is composed by Thaman S with cinematography and editing by R. Madhi and Marthand K. Venkatesh respectively.

Initially set to release in January 2022, Sarkaru Vaari Paata was deferred due to the pandemic and production delays. It eventually had a theatrical release on 12 May 2022 and opened to mixed reviews from critics and audience. Made on a budget of ₹60 crore, the film grossed ₹180–230 crore worldwide, becoming one of the highest-grossing Telugu films of 2022.

Plot[edit]

Mahesh "Mahi" is a finance agent, who has set up his own loan agency named Mahi Finance Corporation, in Miami. He turns his debtors' life into hell when they fail to repay their debts. Meanwhile, Mahi meets Kalavathi, who requests Mahi to loan her US$10K and later US$25K for her graduate studies. Mahi lends the loan and soon falls in love with Kalavathi. However, Mahi finds out that Kalavathi is a gambling addict and had tricked Mahi into asking for the loan. When confronted to repay the loan, she threatens Mahi by using the influence of her father, Rajendranath, a powerful MP, Rajya Sabha member and industrialist based in Vishakapatnam who runs an industrial company: Rajendranath Associates. Mahi travels to Vizag to retrieve the money, which earns Rajendranath's wrath.

Mahi grabs the attention of the media about the loan repayment and reveals that Rajendranath owes him 10,000 crore (US$1.3 billion), much to everyone’s astonishment. Rajendranath confronts Mahi where he reveals his agenda: Before arriving in Vizag, Mahi learns from a senior State Bank official Rajakumari that Rajendranath had swindled the State Bank for 10,000 crore (US$1.3 billion) and had sealed down the bank for illegal laundering before she is arrested by the police. Mahi decided to recover the amount and also expose the fault lines that run deep within the Indian banking system. Mahi manages to serve a bank notice to Rajendranath, who is ordered to repay the debt. Kalavathi finds out about Mahi's misdeeds, and with her uncle (Rajendranath's brother-in-law) plans to make Mahi withdraw the case, but to no avail.

Rajendranath, with his political connections, manages to issue a stay order for the bank notice, from the Supreme Court. Kalavathi realizes her father's true colors, and extends her support to Mahi, renewing their relationship. Mahi, along with the people of his area decide to protest using the slogan Boycott Banks, against Rajendranath and the other banks involved in financial fraud with millionaires. Rajendranath is warned by the Finance Minister that he will be dismissed from the Ministerial post and Rajya Sabha. Rajendranath kidnaps Mahi, with the help of the Vizag ACP Ajay Kumar and orders Ajay to finish him off. The next day, the bank officials find the 1 (1.3¢ US) seal in every bank lock. The henchmen inform Rajendranath, who tells his henchmen to attack the bank.

It is revealed that the cops had helped Mahi escape from the encounter after they learned that he was doing the right thing. Mahi reaches the bank and defeats Rajendranath's henchmen. Rajendranath arrives at the bank, where the mob attacks Rajendranath, but Mahi saves him and makes Rajendranath realize the seriousness of his misdeeds. He apologizes to everyone and repays the 10,000 crore (US$1.3 billion) loan. The State Bank regains its reputation and Rajakumari is released from custody. Rajakumari thanks Mahi and asks him about his origins. Mahi reveals that his parents took a loan of 15,000 (US$190) from the same bank 15 years ago and were unable to repay it on time, due to which they committed suicide. Mahi had forgiven the bank as they did their duty for collecting the loan and that the people must be blamed for not paying the amount in time. Mahi tells that the government has changed and that Sarkaru Vaari Paata must be made to the public sector and everyone.

Production[edit]

Development[edit]

"After watching Okkadu in 2003, I decided to venture into films and make a film with Mahesh Babu. Finally, after these many years, my dream is set to be fulfilled. In other words, this is my dream project and I will certainly make it count [...] With Mahesh’s project, I am working on all the commercial ingredients that will satisfy his fans."

Parasuram, on directing Mahesh Babu.[9]

Following the success of Geetha Govindam (2018), the film's director Parasuram narrated a script to Mahesh Babu.[10] Later, Parasuram began working on the Naga Chaitanya-starrer Nageswara Rao.[11] The filming was delayed due to the COVID-19 pandemic,[12] leading Parasuram to re-visit Babu's film.[13] The project was officially confirmed during late-April 2020, with Parasuram stating it as a "dream come true" moment on directing Babu.[14] Mythri Movie Makers and 14 Reels Plus in collaboration with Babu's home banner, G. Mahesh Babu Entertainment jointly funded the project.[15] On 31 May 2020, on the occasion of Babu's father Krishna's birthday, the makers officially announced the project with the film being titled as Sarkaru Vaari Paata.[16][17]

Cast and crew[edit]

Thaman S was signed to compose the music for the film in his fourth collaboration with Babu.[18] The technical team of the film consists of cinematographer P. S. Vinod,[19] editor Marthand K. Venkatesh and production designer A. S. Prakash.[20] Vinod was eventually replaced by R. Madhi as the cinematographer, as he opted out due to schedule conflicts.[21] In April 2020, Kannada film actor Upendra entered the talks to play a crucial role but it did not materialize.[22] In June, Hindi film actresses Kiara Advani and Saiee Manjrekar were initially considered as the lead actress.[23][24] However, in October, Keerthy Suresh was confirmed to play a lead role.[25][26] In January 2021, Vennela Kishore and Subbaraju joined the production.[21] Tamil film actor Samuthirakani was signed to play a pivotal role,[27] and joined the film's production in September 2021.[28]

Filming[edit]

Part of the film was shot at Barcelona, Spain

In September 2020, Parasuram and his team went to United States, for a location scouting, in order to shoot the film.[29] A formal launch event was held in Hyderabad on 21 November 2020,[30][31] with the film's shooting might commence from 1 January 2021,[31] and will be primarily shot in the United States, Hyderabad and Dubai.[32] However, principal shooting began on 25 January 2021 at Dubai.[21][33]

The first filming schedule took place for four weeks at Mleiha (Sharjah),[34] and was completed on 21 February 2021.[35][36] The second schedule of the film commenced on 13 April 2021 in Hyderabad where two crucial scenes were planned to be shot.[37] But, on 20 April, it was reported that the film's shooting being stalled after six crew members were tested positive for COVID-19.[38] Shooting further delayed after night curfew and several restrictions being announced in Andhra Pradesh and Telangana, to control the rise in COVID-19 cases.[39] The filming resumed in July 2021 in Hyderabad, where scenes featuring Babu and Suresh were shot for a month-long schedule.[40] On 14 August 2021, the film's team headed to Goa for a primary schedule which consisted fight scenes choreographed by Ram Lakshman duo.[41] In October 2021, a schedule took place in Spain and was wrapped up by the first week of November.[42]

Shoot of the film was halted as Babu underwent a knee surgery.[43] A schedule was planned in January 2022 but was delayed as Babu tested positive for COVID-19.[44] Final schedule of the film began in March 2022, at the Aluminum factory in Hyderabad.[45] Action sequences in the climax featuring Babu were shot in this schedule.[46] The shoot was completed in late April 2022.[47]

Reception[edit]

Critical response[edit]

Sarkaru Vaari Paata received mixed reviews from critics and audience.[64][65]

Balakrishna Ganeshan of The News Minute gave the film a rating of 3/5 stars and wrote "It is great to see Mahesh Babu shedding his macho image and wooing a woman in the film. Mahesh is a delight to watch in these scenes. His comic timing and dialogue delivery are on point".[66] Neeshita Nyayapati of The Times of India gave the film a rating of 2.5/5 stars and wrote "Sarkaru Vaari Paata remains a half-baked commercial drama you can sit through mostly due to Mahesh and Keerthy performances".[67] Janani K of India Today gave the film a rating of 2.5/5 stars and wrote "Sarkaru Vaari Paata could have been a solid commercial entertainer dealing with a relevant topic. However, Parasuram Petla’s efforts fall short".[68] Arvind V of Pinkvilla gave the film a rating of 2.5/5 stars and wrote "The film is watchable as long as it is watchable. The first half, despite the not-so-amusing rom-com track, works to an extent".[69]

Calling it a "misfire", Manoj Kumar R of The Indian Express gave the film a rating of 2/5 stars.[70] Sankeertana Varma of Firstpost gave the film a rating of 2/5 stars and wrote "Sarkaru Vaari Paata reeks of simplistic snobbery associated with any film naive enough to pretend that it can solve a systemic issue in less than thirty minutes as its hero is strong and handsome".[71] Haricharan Pudipeddi of the Hindustan Times stated "Mahesh Babu offers something fresh in his latest film. If only Keerty Suresh could say the same.[72] Sangeetha Devi Dundoo of The Hindu stated "This Mahesh Babu, Keerthy Suresh film gets weighed down by an overdrawn later half".[73] Murali Krishna CH of Cinema Express gave the film a rating of 3.5/5 stars and wrote "Overall, Sarkaru Vaari Paata has many flaws and there’s no doubt about it. But it benefits from Mahesh Babu’s lovable performance, which makes one overlook so many of its problems."[74]
