The title means nothing, you know. Saheb Biwi Aur Gangster was fine, cheeky and homage-y but this added Returns, a grammatically incorrect English word at the end of a Hindi title? (Instead of, say, Saheb Biwi Aur Doosra Gangster?) It is this anything-goes approach that carries itself on to the opening credits - with oddly tacky graphics of tossed coins and guns, as if to rub the films lack of finesse in our faces - and to the characters, who are introduced with no subtlety whatsoever: the word Gangster shows up with a funny gong sound, the Biwi appears to wailing B-movie siren sounds in the background. Thus does director Tigmanshu Dhulia make it clear that hes plunging us into a world of pure and unashamed schlock, and this film is meant to be terrifically tawdry. From the background score that often features infant screams a la bad horror films, to scenes resting heavily on obvious metaphor, to the protagonists speaking exclusively in clever and applause-seeking dialogue, this is a film that aims to thrill and do so in the delicious language of the lurid. Saheb Biwi Aur Gangster Returns is a theatrically indulgent entertainer, one that makes no bones about its pulpiness and stays well and truly juicy. ...Read full review
With `Saheb Biwi Aur Gangster Returns`, director Tigmanshu Dhulia delivers another earthy cocktail of power games, bedroom politics, and palace intrigue. Only the stakes are higher in this sequel; the love is tainted from the start, and there`s even vengeance thrown in for good measure. Indeed the film is gripping for the most part, if you`re willing to overlook some convoluted stretches. Despite its many indulgences `Saheb Biwi Aur Gangster Returns` is ultimately an engaging watch. I`m going with three out of five for this fascinating tale of ambition and emotions that might have further benefited from tighter writing. ...Read full review
Tigmanshu Dhulia has created an intriguing world with rajas fighting for their kingship; politicians watching porn, gangsters sleeping with the enemy, and women unapologetic about adultery in the ballroom and bedroom. The setting and story is vibrant, dramatic, dark and humourous at the same time. Once again, he scores with his characters - intelligently sketched, with dichotomous layers - dark, brooding, loving and lustful. The editing and the screenplay in the second half lose steam, and the item number (courtesy Mughda Godse) punctures the pace. The climax passively surrenders without the satiating feel of bittersweet revenge. This may not be Tigmanshu`s best, but it`s a movie with more balls than most cinema can flaunt. ...Read full review
