When you have a director of the capability of Raju Hirani, an actor of Ranbir’s calibre and the controverial lifestory of one of the most iconic superstars of Bollywood in Sanjay Dutt, expectations will be very high. Atleast I, had tons of expectations, the trailer looked amazing. But alas, I was disappointed at how ordinary and average the film was. The film has everything right from a spoiled rich kid under pressure of the legacy of his parents, drugs, terrorism charges. That has been the past 37 years of Baba’ career and Raju has tried portraying it on celluloid in his own style involving humour which has worked wonderfully well for his past films. But it sadly does not work in Sanju. The entire first half is spent on Baba’s drug problem, on his fight with it. The main issues and controversy of his terrorism are introduced late but up until then you are already feeling bad for Baba as was the main intention of the film it seems. To show the other side of the story and show Baba in a sympathetic light. And I have absolutely no qualms in that. The main issue with the film is a very ordinary script and writing. There was a lot to show but the director and writer, I guess toned it down for a larger audience and focused on very specific issues. They barely seemed to have scratched the surface of Baba’s life through the movie as many things looked incomplete and lacked depth. The film though technically sound in most departments such as good musical score, editing and cinematography, fails to leave an impact and the sole reason for it is an average script. The second half over does the media bashing in respect to making Baba’s life difficult and spreading half baked truth. Although it is true that media manipulates and can no longer be considered completely truthful, overdoing or overplaying that card makes it less impactful. But kudos to Raju for taking that topic because Media manipulation is a hot topic in today’s times. Raju also subtly pulls a mirror to the society on how quickly we react and pass judgement to things without knowing the complete truth. One of the final scenes so aptly puts it out when Sanju comes out of Yerwada jail and a ‘fan’ is constantly shouting for a picture together but Sanju is busy when the ‘fan’ shouts out ‘aee terrorist,ek picture lene ko kya jata tera’. Yes, such elements exist among us. Now what makes the movie worth watching is Ranbir Kapoor’s heart stealing performance as Sanju Baba. He absolutely nails it in terms of picking up Baba’s mannerisms and voice to a large extent. But the job is half done. The rest is shouldered by his impeccable acting and performance. Ranbir Kapoor is the whole and soul of this movie. He is still handicapped by the script but he made the most of what he was given and made it a memorable performance. This performance of his is definitely among his top 3 which includes Rockstar and Tamasha. The rest cast also has stalwarts like Paresh Rawal playing Sanju’s father in Sunil Dutt and he perfectly portrays a calm persona that was Sunil Dutt sahab. Vicky Kaushal as Sanju’s best friend Kamli is outstanding. He picks the Gujju accent and humorous character with such ease and panache that it speaks volumes of his acting skills. Jim Sarbh plays the drug peddlar friend of Sanju and he too was brilliant in the first half. Manisha Koirala has a limited role as Sanju’s mother Nargis Dutt and she doesn’t disappoint. Anushka Sharma’s role as the writer was very bland and just looked plain bad. She even tried putting up an American accent for a couple of seconds and failed in it. Cinematography is very good. The picturisation of ‘Har Maidaan Fateh’ song was so inspiring and beautiful that it constantly gave me goosebumps. Editing was crisp, no songs comes out of the blue and they are there for a reason which is very unlikely for a Raju Hirani film, so good job done on that aspect. Sanju is an ordinary film by all standards but the acting makes it a worthy watch. Watch it for Ranbir’s game changing act and keep low expectations from the movie.
