Official poster for Ram Gopal Varma's SARKARIf you don't know who Ram Gopal Varma is, then you're missing out.

Bollywood's most innovative director, his gangster film COMPANY has been available on DVD with English subs for a few years and if you care about action movies, or movies at all, you should pick it up.

Now, his new film SARKAR is set for a July release date. It's an adaptation of THE GODFATHER with Bollywood's biggest icon, Amitabh Bachchan, playing the head of a criminal family and Amitabh's son, Abhishek Bachchan (who was out-of-control good in last year's YUVA, playing a disposable street thug), playing the Michael Corleone role. I'm sorry, but if you're not excited about this, you need to get yourself there. (By the way: Varma says that Abhishek did a better job onscreen than his dad. Oedipal Ouch!)

Check out the poster (courtesy of the Ram Gopal Varma fanpage) and then you can wet your whistle with this teaser from Indiafm.
