Saheb Biwi aur Gangster Returns- Movie Review

Roochster

Saheb-Biwi-Aur-Gangster-Returns-posterSaheb Biwi aur Gangster has returned and how!

The sequel goes one step ahead of the prequel and has an independent story keeping the 3 central characters in mind. Irrfan Khan plays Soha Ali Khan’s love interest. He wants to kill Saheb (Jimmy Sheirgill) whose grandfather had killed Irrfan Khan’s grandfather in some war. Mahie Gill is the ‘Biwi’ of the crippled ‘Saheb’ and is mostly drunk throughout and wants to finally have her own identity but needs a mastermind to help her. That mastermind turns out to be the ‘Gangster’ (Irrfan Khan), Saheb’s enemy.

Tigmanshu Dhulia and his team have outdone themselves with the sequel which is better than it’s prequel which seems to be a rarity in Bollywood films. The way the story unfolds is interesting and gripping. The setting is real, rustic and not over-the-top as they show in most movies. The styling is also tastefully done to suit the characters. The cinematography is good in some parts and bad in some.

Jimmy Sheirgill is a delight to watch in the film. I think he’s also extremely underrated and should get his due by doing more interesting roles. Mahie Gill is a little annoying with her forever drunken voice. She looks really good in the movie though. Irrfan Khan is natural and effortless. Soha Ali Khan is superb! I think it’s her best performance yet and she too should get her due by doing films with substance. The supporting cast is good too except for Pravesh Rana who should stick to doing reality shows.

The music of the film can barely be spoken about except for the song ‘Jugni’ which is not new anyway. Sandeep Chowta was briliant once upon a time but now should stick to background scores which he’s very good at.

Overall, Saheb Biwi aur Gangster Returns is entertaining and I enjoyed it more than the first one.

Rating– 3.5/5
