The noir atmosphere, which has become a point of differentiation for the business of filmmaking, has had its definitive initiation with the advent of Ram Gopal Verma in the Hindi cinema. When he has returned back to the same with a vengeance in SARKAR RAJ-2, he has again been able to claim the turf, which was his own. In each of the films that Ram Gopal Verma made, he had his particular signature of noire in it, and this is what endeared him to the audience. For the same reason it seems, in SARKAR RAJ-2 he has come out with four different versions of Govinda-Govinda, which was kind of a signature tune for SARKAR, a la the signature tune of James Bond.

In most of the films where Ram Gopal Verma has hit the bullsí eye, it is these kinds of novel approaches that made him what Ramu is today. Though he has made 19 films so far, it is the films, which dealt with the aspects of violence in one way or the other, be it in SHIVA, SATYA, COMPANY, or SARKAR have added the brand equity to his name whose aura has been some what altered as and when his other films flopped. But whenever he returned back to the genre of violence he has scored bull's eye.

The use of bicycle chain in SHIVA gave a distinct identity to Nagarjun, and such was his association with the bicycle chain, that when he came on the screen in KHUDGAWAH, he did this with a chain a hang up of his image from SHIVA. The violence of SATYA in its rawness is still unsurpassed and the underbelly of violence synchronizing with the beat of electronic bass emerged as the signature tune preparing the audience for unleashing a fresh streak of violence on the screen. In COMPANY the background music returned to the classical tunes, and the film was able to score without having any music on account of the excellent background score in the film.

In fact the violence of Ramu's films gets the accentuation on account of usage of particular instruments either in vocal or instrumental, which has a profound effect. Ram Gopal Verma is able to have an impacted presence on account of the brew of violence and music that he whips in his films dealing with aspects of violence. It is on account of this admixture that Ramu's films started the trend of theme music in films and it emerged as a unique selling proposition for his films. SARKAR RAJ-2 also seems to be following in the same vein.
