Welcome to an incredible story of a man and a movie star who made many mistakes, walked through fire, survived it and lived one heck of a life. Sanjay Dutt’s life is full of roller-coaster ride, yes, there’s a lot missing, but kudos to the filmmaker & off course Ranbir Kapoor for brilliantly portraying Sanju on screen.
The movie has an ensemble star-cast other than Ranbir Kapoor including Sonam Kapoor, Vicky Kaushal, Paresh Rawal but all eyes on ‘Sanju’. The way Ranbir got into the skin of Dutt will leave you stunned, we have already seen Ranbir’s uncanny resemblance with Sanjay Dutt in the promos and trailers and the curiosity that was generated amongst fans have been fully satisfied in the movie for the fans and at times you get confused if it’s Ranbir of Sanjay Dutt himself onscreen.
The movie explores some of the most crucial chapters from Sanjay Dutt’s controversial real life including his tryst with drugs, relationship with father and his trials in the Arms Acts case and the 1993 Mumbai blasts including his jail term.
The film starts off with Sanjay Dutt (Ranbir Kapoor) desperately wanting a writer for his biography even while he’s preparing to surrender himself to the Supreme Court’s judgement in the Arms Act case. And when a film writer fails him miserably by comparing baba to bapu, Sanju turns to a more established writer Winnie (Anushka Sharma) to pen his biography.
And form there starts the flash back giving deep insights into the highs and lows of his life. The movie keep shuffling into the flashback and current mode with Sanju’s confessions and recollections to Winnie.
As expected from a Rajkumar Hirani film, Sanju movie too has humour that blends with drama effortlessly.
