Sanju is the author, publisher, director, Rajkumar Hirani's fifth feature film, and in four of these films Abhijat Joshi has written the film's script with him. In one of her interviews, Hirani explained that they approached each scene with the LCD principle. A scene should either make you laugh, make you cry, or be dramatic enough to make you feel so busy. You could say that it is this principle and its editing skills that have made all his films so special. They were firmly established entertainers who then found acceptance among the masses.
Sanju, his latest biopic based on the life of actor Sanjay Dutt (star of Hirani's first two films as a director) continues this tradition, following the principle of the LCD and beginning with a dramatic touch, then awakening during his 1
Sanjay Dutt has had a remarkably current and controversial life and it makes an interesting story alone. From his days as a drug addict to his time in jail after the Bombay bombing in 1993, his recurrent clashes with the underworld and the lengthy trial, Dutt's story is intriguing. While the world may have judged him differently, the film industry seems to be blaming all & # 39; Sanju Baba & # 39; with a gentle wave of the hand and the movie Sanju does not seem to be any different.
You can see Sanju as a biopic and also as another Rajkumar Hirani movie starring Ranbir Kapoor. While the first prism can lead to disappointment, the second provides a much more fulfilling experience for a movie watcher. While it is true that the scribes were unable to illuminate Sanjay Dutt's life, the aspects they depict are also depicted in a very light rose tint. We may never know the reason why Hirani decided to make a film about Dutt's life, but we can be sure that there should be no wart and no image. The film portrays him as a good-natured victim and, as the movie industry has done for the past three decades, rejects any suggestion of inappropriateness or injustice with a gentle wave of his hand. Dutt is a nice guy who falls prey to the circumstances. They blame the media and actually take a very strong line against the newspapers and even add a song to the real Sanjay Dutt and Ranbir Kapoor damning newspapers.
If you look at the film as a Hirani movie and you stop worrying about the biopic bit, it becomes a fun ride. The first fifteen minutes of the film are likely to be Hirani's faintest fifteen minutes of his career to date, but the commission will soon be restored and a steady hand will emerge. This quiet hand leads the film and takes the viewer on a ride, where the story is well told, brilliantly staged and expertly woven. The film focuses on Dutt's relationship with his famous parents, especially his father, actor and politician Sunil Dutt. Unlike some of the other famous Hindi film directors, Hirani is not forced into a smug vein and focuses on telling the paying audience a good story. This is good for Sanju. While they pick out aspects of Dutt's life and then present it to us as they shoot, they thoroughly entertain. There is the familiar sense of humor that you find in all his previous films. There are the usual slightly exaggerated emotional scenes and then there are the dramatic moments that make Sanju an LCD success story. Ranbir Kapoor's impression of Sanjay Dutt shines from his walk to small flourishes of his eyes to his dialogue delivery. The role offers him a number of shades to portray and he does it with verve. From a drug-related wreck to a vulnerable son to a father, he makes it beautiful. Paresh Rawal as Sunil Dutt is top notch. Honestly, the film is honest about the difficulties Dutt Sr. had to go through because of his son. However, there are some mistakes. While the film mentions how Dutt Senior may have been abandoned by his own party men when his son was arrested, he ignores that Sunil Dutt eventually had to seek Bal Thackeray's help to get his son out of jail. Vicky Kaushal does a remarkably good job as Sanju's closest friend, the Gujarati NRI Kamli.
While the music may not have been the best, it fits in well with the movie.
Like this illustration or hate it, but you can not fault it for its pace or its ability to hold your attention. There are no moments when you might be tempted to remove your phone and check if you have important news. It's a fun story that is well told.
Hirani is the director of Aamir Khan's ability to bring together laughter, emotions, and drama and to weave them into a close-knit story.
If you have an honest Sanjay Dutt biopic then you will probably be disappointed, but if you are going to see another Rajkumar Hirani movie, then Sanju is a great way to spend 161 minutes of your time.
