Sanju – Movie review

Sanjay Duttt’s controversial life is brought to screen by Rajkumar Hirani with Ranbir playing the lead role of Sanjay Dutt. The film starts with the Supreme Court’s judgement in the Arms Act against Sanjay Dutt, giving him 5 years of prison and a month’s time to surrender himself. He turns to an established writer Winnie Diaz ( Anushka Sharma) to pen his biography. Though reluctant at first Winnie goes through Sanju’s life as a son of a veteran Actor, a friend, a drug addict and finally as an Actor who survives highs and low in his career.

Hirani in his exceptional style brings us an extreme insight of Sanjay Dutt’s Life; Ranbir Kapoor shows how talented he is in this character which he owns throughout the film. Two other actors along with Ranbir shine in the film, one is Vicky Kaushal who plays Sanjay Dutt’s friend Kamlesh and Paresh Rawal who plays as Sunil Dutt. Both these character play an important role in the film and their relationship will bring some emotional moments in the film which will stay in your heart for some time. Manisha koirala as Nargis Dutt has a brief role but played well in the character. Cameos of Anushka and Sonam were also well done. Movie might feel a bit long, but the narration keeps you alert. Sometimes Ranbir’s imitation does look overdone, but for most of time you just see Sanjay Dutt in him.Though the film doesn’t tell us some crucial life moments of Sanjay dutt, Sanju shows how he manages to take control of his roller coaster life and survives. I still give it 8/10

Sultan – Movie review


Sultan the life of a fictional Haryana based wrestler, who became Olympic and the world champion released this Ramzan weekend with much expectation from the fans and critics. The film opens in Delhi were the future of Pro take down league a mixed martial arts tournament. Aakash oberoi(AmitSadh) is man behind this league which is dying and is forced to close it by its Sponsors and investors. He finnaly convinces them for one last chance to retrieve it. He is then advised by his father to bring a Indian athlete into this franchise and give the local audience a champion to cheer. He asks him to bring Sultan Ali Khan (Salman Khan), who once was a famous wrestler who won the olypmic and the world championship for the country. Aakash goes to the hometown of Sultan, who now is a middle aged, pot-bellied clerk working for the state water dept. Askash tries to get Sultan with money, except Sultan refuses to get back into the ring. Aakash then comes to know about the story of Sultan, how he became a wrestler, his love, his reason for leaving the career behind. Will Sultan get back into ring to fight? Will he mend his broken life? That forms the rest of the story.

Salman Khan’s hardwork can be seen in every scene as a young wrestler and as a middle aged fighter who his determined to fight his demons to win back what he lost in his life. Anushka as Aarfa dazzles on screen has Sultan’s wife and also as the female wrestler. Even though the underdog moments in the second half is the usual drama with but Salman makes it look good. With very high concoction of action and melodrama we rarely have a dull moment in these 170 mins. Saying that you still could have reduced the unwanted song and few scenes which move lazy in the second half. Watch Sultan just for Salman Khan and you won’t be Sorry. I give sultan 6/10
