Jimmy Shergill New Film Saheb Biwi Aur Gangster Returns Movie Review:
You don’t expect anything but excellence from a man who has proven his brilliance film after film. After his much revered film on sports Paan Singh Tomar, Tigmanshu Dhulia comes up with the sequel to his 2011 gangster politico thriller Saheb Biwi Aur Gangster. While the first part had gained ample recognition, the sequel promises to outdo the brilliance of the first. But does it succeed? Let’s find out.
Well Coming into Story,Tigmanshu gets down to business from the very first minute of the film. Through the initial credit roll he gives you a fair recap of the first part. Aditya Pratap Singh (Jimmy Sheirgill), The Saheb, is crippled and is trying to recover from the physical disability and his wifes betrayal. The lover cum seductress Madhavi Devi (Mahie Gill), The Biwi, is now an MLA. Her relationship with Aditya may have broken to shambles but her relation with alcohol is deep, dark and daunting. Indarjeet Singh (Irrfan Khan), The Gangster, a ragged prince who has lost everything but his pride, pledges to get back his familys respect which was once destroyed by Adityas ancestors. Ranjana (Soha Ali Khan) is a modern ambitious girl who is madly in love with Indarjeet. The story takes a new turn when Aditya falls in love with Ranjana and forces Birendra (Raj Babbar) her father, for their marriage. What happens next follows through the rest of the Film.
Thanks to Tigmanshu having given equal footage to all the characters, each and every star have performed exceptionally well. Irrfan Khan stands out as he shows his anger, passion, jealousy and pride with utmost conviction. Jimmy pulls off his role with gusto and so does Mahie as the volatile, scheming wife and Raj Babbar. Soha Ali too stands out. Her character is more subtle and poised. Though Deepraj Rana’s character is silent, he emotes very well and is able to convey a lot.
Technical And Other Departments:
Leaving the flaws aside, there isn’t a thing that the filmmaker falters at. Right from the story to the acting, the backdrop to the backgound score, everything is top notch. The dialogues deserve a special mention too. Full marks to writer Tigmanshu for penning extremely witty and clever dialogues throughout the film.
Saheb Biwi Aur Gangster Returns, directed by Tigmanshu Dhulia is truly a sequel considering that unlike other sequels, this one is a continuation of the original – Saheb Biwi Aur Gangster. By introducing additional characters, the director ensures that there is more drama and romance in this one.Though the film is two and half hours long, it doesn’t bore you at all as various scenes in the film keeps you engrossed in your seats. The characters are carefully etched showing traits of deception, sincerity and unpredictability. The best part of Saheb Biwi Aur Gangster Returns is that none of the character seems to overtake the other as all have been given equal importance. The humour is dark, witty and in absolute good taste.Background score by Sandeep Chowta stands out and adds to the feel of the film. Dialogues are penned by Tigmanshu Dhulia himself and are extremely impactful.
Well, here we must tell you that there are some sequences which is not in sync with the rest of the script and ‘could have been easily avoided’, but overall, you don’t complain. Another thing….wonder if the director like all other filmmakers thought that an item number would add to the charm of the film because Mugdha Godse’s item number was absolutely NOT required in a strong script such as this! While the first half of Saheb Biwi Aur Gangster Returns is extremely gripping, the second part is a little inconsistent.
Saheb Biwi Aur Gangster Returnshas the balls! Go watch it!
