Sanju: Movie Review : Worth Watching or No Paisa Wasool?

Sanju Movie

Sanju movie has been a huge hit among the audience and the shows are running non-stop across the multiplexes in various cities and towns in India and many places abroad. The audiences were eagerly waiting for the movie since its very first promos aired. It was a pure delight for the ardent Sanjay Dutt fans.

The blockbuster has already made a huge business at the box office. The film continues to run across multiplexes all over the country and abroad. The film hit the screens with the massive collections of 34.75 crores on the first day itself. The film has managed to do a whopping business of 167.51 crores in the first 5 days of its release.

However, the business of the film continues to grow as the film is running successfully at the box office even after the first weekend, there are mixed reviews when it comes to the movie. People have highly applauded Ranbir Kapoor for his remarkable acting and fitting seamlessly in Dutt’s role. The script has received a lot of flaks for being a “PR Strategy” to revive Sanjay Dutt’s career.

According to the movie, the actor is portrayed in a pitiable state and everyone is shown responsible for the miserable condition of Dutt except himself. He’s been portrayed more a victim even for his involvement in the infamous Bomb Blas case or possessing the life threatening weapons. Be it the drug addiction or the many ladies in Sanjay’s lives, the actor is hardly held accountable for his actions.

The strong point of the film includes the fantastic acting by the protagonist Ranbir Kapoor along with Vicky Kaushal and Anushka Sharma. The entire star cast of the film has done justice to their roles which is one of the biggest strong point of this film.

Sanju, directed by Raj Kumar Hirani who is no less than a critically acclaimed director is termed as one of the weakest scripts by the director till date. Some of the critics have gone to the extent to call the film just another launch pad in Sanjay Dutt’s second innings with Bollywood after a hiatus of long years.

Sanjay Dutt’s relationship with his ailing mother and father is portrayed in a true emotional way which is quite moving to witness. The scenes are enacted beautifully by Paresh Rawal and Manisha Koirala who have played the roles of the actor’s deseased parents. Dia Mirza is playing the character of Dutt’s present with Manyata who manages to pull her act much much ease and poise.

In all, Sanju is a great movie to watch but as a biopic it fails to state the facts and has a point of its own which does not go well with most of the critics.
