Ratting: * 1/2
Directed by Ram Gopal Varma
Produced by Siddhant Oberoi, Amit Sharma
Written by Nilesh Girkar
Music by Bappi Lahiri
Starring: Amitabh Bachchan, Sanjay Dutt, Rana Daggubati,Madhu Shalini, Lakshmi Manchu, Nathalia Kaur


The government officials hold a secret meeting in which they take a decision to create a new unit which is unofficially referred to as ‘Department’. This special task force is formed to  finish the underworld by stepping over the law's boundaries.
Shiva Narayan (Rana Daggubati). An honest and daredevil cop, He joins a new department led by Sr.Inspector Mahadev Bhosale (Sanjay Dutt) where their job is to finish the crime in Mumbai City. Their prime focus are the gangs of Gauhri  and Sauthiya (Vijay Raaz), together they approach their task with ease in order to maintain peace  in the city. In one operation Shiva saves life of a Gangster-turned-Politician Sarjerao Gaikwad (Amitabh Bachchan) who after this incident begins to supporting Shiva. What happens next is what the entire film is about.
The first half of the film is a crap, where Inspector Mahadev Bhosle (Sanjay Dutt), the boss of Mumbai's Department and Rana Daggubati (Shiv), goes on killing bunch of underworld gangs.


Amitabh Bachchan's deadly avatar in the film is sure to impress you all. He induces life in the film with his power-packed performance. The tall and beafy Rana Daggubati has no better job except beating up the goons throughout the movie.His cold expressions and unpolished Hindi is a sure let down. Sanjay Dutt's performance is average. Madhu Shalini deserves a compliment for her bold and tough role in the movie. Madhu plays a tough competition to all the men in the movie. Unlike, Lakshmi Manchu and Anjana Sukhani, Madhu Shalini won't go unnoticeable. Vijay Raaz performs well.

What’s Gud

Nothing is good except Amithabh Bachchan’s acting. Amitabh Bachchan is outstanding in his cameo appearance. His all scenes are mind-blowing and the whole character is pretty interesting. If we remove him from this film, the movie ends up like a ‘B’ grade film.

What’s Bad

  • The poor video quality and weird camera angles that distract the viewer; the loud background score. “Camera work tortures your eyes, the sound tortures your ears and the story will torture your brain.
  • The film lacks a good script and too many sub-plots adds confusion to it.
  • The dialogues are mindless due to poor direction.
  • The music is the biggest disaster of  Department.
  • Camera work is very bad ,it seems that you are watching some Home video.
  • On the flip side the entire character of Sanjay Dutt was totally confusing and unexplained.

      In short, RGV's Department is a complete waste of time and money.  watch the movie if  you are a fan of Amitabh Bachchan.
