SYNOPSIS
Few lives in our times are as dramatic and enigmatic as the saga of Sanjay Dutt. Coming from a family of cinema legends, he himself became a film star, and then saw dizzying heights and darkest depths: adulation of diehard fans, unending battles with various addictions, brushes with the underworld, prison terms, loss of loved ones, and the haunting speculation that he might or might not be a terrorist.

Sanju is in turns a hilarious and heartbreaking exploration of one man's battle against his own wild self and the formidable external forces trying to crush him. It depicts the journey of a man through everything that life can throw at him. Some true stories leave you thinking "Did this really happen?" This is one such unbelievable story that happens to be true.

Verdict: Ranbir Kapoor and Rajkumar Hirani have created a masterpiece. Sanjay Dutt is known for his decisions more than his movies, some like Munna Bhai M.B.B.S, right, and some wrong. He has seen his ups and downs, both in his personal life and career. Many people know him as the film star who went to jail, while some firmly believe that he is a good man. Whatever may people think, nobody really,... ...Read full review
Sanju explores some of the most crucial chapters from movie star Sanjay Dutts dramatic and controversial real life. It gives a lowdown on his tryst with drugs and his trials and tribulations in the Arms Acts case and the 1993 Mumbai blasts. ...Read full review
Exasperated with the constant media badgering that he is subjected to, the real-life protagonist in Sanjudecides the only way he can hope to shed the tag of a `terrorist` is by narrating his side of the story to a fictional biographer (Anushka Sharma). The latter isn`t too keen to take up the offer. The hero`s wife, Maanyata (Dia Mirza), steps in and throws her a bait: bad choices make good stories. Sanjay Dutt, on his part, promises to reveal the "total sach". But whether or not you take Sanju to be an account of the whole truth, it offers a thoroughly engaging probe into the life of a flawed individual who, grappling with the shadow of a towering figure of a father, believes "it is okay to be ordinary". ...Read full review
Bolega to, faad diya bhidu! Rajkumar Hirani has written, directed and edited the film Sanju, based on real life actor and friend Sanjay Dutt and has pulled no punches in his treatment. Drugs, sex, AK 56, RDX - its all there, make no mistake. Its a reexamination of the life of one of our most controversial film stars and Rajkumar Hirani has made every episode seem as real as it could get. But the treatment is such that you dont end up feeling like youve watched a news documentary. ...Read full review
There is a scene in Sanju where just before signing Munnabhai MBBS, Ranbir Kapoor the actor who plays Dutt says that the reason hes out of work is because the best scripts in B-Town go to Shah Rukh Khan and Aamir Khan. This is one of the many honest admissions that Rajkumar Hiranis semi-biopic on Sanjay Dutt embodies. Lets find out if the film does justice to putting forth a fair and accurate narrative on the actors life or does it glorify him and make him into a messiah. ...Read full review
Sanju starring Ranbir Kapoor is without a doubt one of the most awaited films of 2018. I saw Sanju in a near soldout 7 am show and here`s what I feel about it. In his 2006 film, Lage Raho Munna Bhai, Sanjay Dutt`s Gandhigiri won everyone`s heart. While he may be famous for Gandhigiri but Sanjay Dutt is no Mahatma Gandhi. Rajkumar Hirani makes it clear in film`s opening shot itself. ...Read full review
To expect objectivity in a biography thats been commissioned by its very subject is like ordering vegetable biryani and complaining that you cant find any meat in it. Sanjay Dutts fascinating life story makes for a compelling, emotional film, but Sanju, directed by Rajkumar Hirani, doesnt shy away from the fact that its a one-sided, practically first-person defense of the actors many transgressions. And boy, does it work hard to make you question that khalnayak image! ...Read full review
