Sanju – The movie ‘Sanju’ staring, Ranbir Kapoor, Paresh Rawal, Manisha Koilara, Dia Mirza and Sonam Kapoor Ahuja in lead roles. The movie Released on 29th June 2018, worldwide. Although, it is a Biopic on the veteran actor Sanjay Dutt. And movie is an apt description of the actor’s life. And the struggle that he had to go through, from his drug addiction days to his journey to Yerwada and Arthur Road Jail. Being implicated for possessing arms, to being implicated in conspiracy of Mumbai Attacks of 1993. Although, the Movie shows the rise and fall and then rise of the actor and the stigmas that his family and friends had to face.
Raj Kumar Hirani does it again:
After giving the Audience a dose of laughter in Munna Bhai MBBS. And teaching a life’s lessons through Lage Raho Munna Bhai, Raj Kumar Hirani comes up with another venture of his. This time it is a biopic on a living Legend, whose ups and downs in life makes an important subject of study and research for a movie. He further, took up the challenge of making a biopic on Sanjay Dutt. The movie is a touch upon his life’s journey through triumphs and tribulation, from mother’s lost battle to cancer, to being wrongly accused from TADA court.
Raj Kumar Hirani did a swell job. By making the film that gives a chance for Sanjay Dutt’s Fans to take a sneak peek in his life and for audience to know and get closer to him. As a director he was able to bring out the best in his entire cast. The movie shows Ranbir Kapoor as Sanjay Dutt, because of the genius mind of Raj Kumar Hirani Ranbir Kapoor looks exactly like Sanjay Dutt. It almost like watching junior and younger Sanjay Dutt in front of us.
The movie depicts the life of the actor, rolled into one. It is an emotional take on the life and its U turns. The role of Vicky Kaushal, who portrays the character of Sanjay Dutt’s best friend Kamli or Kumar Gaurav, is the one to watch. The friendship or Bromance between the two is worth watch. The film deals with a dark subjects but with a tinge of grey elements in them. Sanju is not a film that wants to clear the image of the veteran actor. Rather it is an attempt to make people her side of story. For this reason a Biographer was introduced by Hirani, who had come to write a book On Sanjay. Further, the role of Biographer- Vinnie Roy was correctly played by actress Anushka Sharma Kohli. This film’s intensity is maintained by Ranbir Kapoor, as oppose to the director’s humorous style.
Although, it wouldn’t be wrong to say that this movie rests on the able shoulders of Ranbir Kapoor. Who after giving a series of mediocre films is out to win the hearts with this one and yes all the awards coming his way this year. He runs the one man show, and can be aptly said to be the soul of the film.
We predict that this movie is going to a record breaking movie and sure short hit. and off course will enter the 100 crore club. This film will become a brand in itself. It is first time that a living actor’s biography is being made in his life time. The Life of Sanjay Dutt provides the perfect Masala of Bollywood movies, and yet it will be a life worth getting to better. Although, it is believed that the film will do about a 30 crore business only on the opening day.
This movie is a sure win – win, and will take home all the awards and the hearts of fan.
