Rajkumar Hirani's much awaited flick Sanju starring Ranbir Kapoor as Sanjay Dutt has finally hit the marquee. The film has been a hot topic of discussion ever since the filmmaker announced the biopic. Considering Dutt's life has many controversial facets to it, it made people even more curious to get a closer sneak-peek into the life story of one of 'Bollywood's bad boys'.
As expected, the film has got a thumbs up from the critics and audience alike, with positive word of mouth pouring in for Ranbir Kapoor's exceptional performance and Vicky Kaushal's surprising act. Rajkumar Hirani's films are built up of moments and Sanju too has some powerful ones.
We bring you few scenes from Sanju that linger long even after the end credits roll. (Beware, major spoiler alert!)
Sanju's First Step Into Showbiz
Lights, camera, action! 'Kya yahi pyaar hain'...a young Sanju (Ranbir Kapoor) is seen struggling to lip sync the lovey-dovey lyrics while shooting the number minus the leading lady. The nervous, the palpitations..it's all evident! Take 2, Sunil Dutt (Paresh Rawal) steps in to show his son how to seamlessly romance. The stark contrast makes up for an interesting scene.
When Sanju Discovers About His Mother Suffering From Cancer
One of the most striking scenes in Sanju! On one side, there's a mother Nargis (Manisha Koirala) who doesn't want her son to discover her pain and camouflages it by acting in real, the other side has Sanju struggling to still come to terms with what he's just been told by his father.
It's Okay To Be Ordinary
A drunken Kamli (Vicky Kaushal) enters Sunil Dutt's room and pleas him to tell his son that he doesn't need to be Sunil Dutt - that it's okay to be Sanjay Dutt. That wonderful scene beautifully tells us the the cost of failing in a family where success is inherited.
The scene where Sanju succumbs to shooting heroin while his mother, Nargis (Manisha Koirala), is in a coma in the same room.
The Rocky Premiere
As the line between reality and imagination blurs, a helpless Sanju tightly clutches his father to save him from succumbing to drugs. Keep tissues in handy for this moment.
When Sunil Dutt passes away in his sleep and Sanju regrets not reading his letter to his dad last night where he had finally opened up about his love and respect for his father.
