    Saheb Biwi Aur Gangster Returns Movie Review - It has the balls!

    |
    Rating:
    3.5/5
    Saheb Biwi Aur Gangster Returns, directed by Tigmanshu Dhulia is truly a sequel considering that unlike other sequels, this one is a continuation of the original - Saheb Biwi Aur Gangster. By introducing additional characters, the director ensures that there is more drama and romance in this one.

    Though the film is two and half hours long, it doesn't bore you at all as various scenes in the film keeps you engrossed in your seats. The characters are carefully etched showing traits of deception, sincerity and unpredictability. The best part of Saheb Biwi Aur Gangster Returns is that none of the character seems to overtake the other as all have been given equal importance. The humour is dark, witty and in absolute good taste.

    Background score by Sandeep Chowta stands out and adds to the feel of the film. Dialogues are penned by Tigmanshu Dhulia himself and are extremely impactful.

    Minuses

    Well, here we must tell you that there are some sequences which is not in sync with the rest of the script and 'could have been easily avoided', but overall, you don't complain. Another thing....wonder if the director like all other filmmakers thought that an item number would add to the charm of the film because Mugdha Godse's item number was absolutely NOT required in a strong script such as this! While the first half of Saheb Biwi Aur Gangster Returns is extremely gripping, the second part is a little inconsistent.

    Story

    After losing his legs, Saheb (Jimmy Sheirgill) is bound to the wheelchair and is very cranky, irrational and wicked, especially towards his alcoholic Biwi (Mahie Gill), who is now a politician. Gangster (Irrfan Khan) is determined to settle scores with Saheb and walks in the scene.

    What happens next? The murky and venomous political games that people play and the craving for power is what the story uncovers.

    Performances

    Thanks to Tigmanshu having given equal footage to all the characters, each and every star have performed exceptionally well. Irrfan Khan stands out as he shows his anger, passion, jealousy and pride with utmost conviction. Jimmy pulls off his role with gusto and so does Mahie as the volatile, scheming wife and Raj Babbar. Soha Ali too stands out. Her character is more subtle and poised. Though Deepraj Rana's character is silent, he emotes very well and is able to convey a lot.
