Sanju movie review: Ranbir Kapoor is just perfect in Sanjay Dutt biopic
Mumbai : Sanju movie review: Are you excited about watching Ranbir Kapoor’s Sanju? Yes, you should be, because the actor has worked flawlessly in the movie. The first thing you will notice about Ranbir Kapoor in Sanju isn't his strange similarity to Sanjay Dutt, or that he's a fantastic actor with the ability to morph into his role. It’s just that there is nothing to complain about Ranbir's portrayal to biopic.
It’s not like how how easily Ranbir has slipped into Sanjay Dutt's shoes but it is about the way in which every single aspect of the controversial actor has been taken in by the talented Kapoor, from his stooping walk, his goofy eyes that reveal so much pain and also a longing for pleasure, to the way he talks and the way he acts.
Ranbir Kapoor acts like Sanjay Dutt, who is an actor by profession; and now just imagine, the level of preparation Kapoor would have undergone to perform in the film.
Though the film is about the life story of Sanjay Dutt but yes, the film serves primarily as a platform for Ranbir Kapoor and his talent as an actor. But one person's story hardly helps a film to achieve success. Paresh Rawal's reserved performance, as a helpless father torn between love for his son and his moral code.
It is as much about Manisha Koirala, Sonam Kapoor and Dia Mirza, who each play memorable characters in Dutt's life. Manisha is particularly refreshing as Nargis Dutt and it is a delight to watch her on the big screen again
The first 90 minutes of Sanju, however, belong to the heart-warming romance between Ranbir as Dutt, and Vicky Kaushal, as his friend from the US, Kamli. It is through their friendship, and Dutt's relationship with his father, that the plot of Sanju opens out.
Sanju presents the unknown details of Sanjay Dutt's life. There's an emotional message in every potential scene; the film doesn't attempt to decode Sanjay Dutt or justify his life. Neither does it try to whitewash his flaws. A big credit goes to Hirani for not painting Dutt with larger than life strokes. But every scene is spiced up with Bollywood ‘masala’.
Hopefully, you will dig out more facts by watching the movie. So, this weekend get set to enjoy ‘Sanju’ in your nearest PVR with some cold drinks and crunchy bites. Happy funday!
