Duration: 2 h 20 Min
The gang of SBAG is back with more reprisal, resentment and a blatant intent for fornication. All that sound toppingly promising isn’t it? Yes, it does, but alas!, Tigmanshu Dhulia couldn’t just juggle adroitly between all the weaponry needed for such vehemently intrigued franchise.
The third installment starts from where its 2013 sequel ends. Saheb aka Aditya Pratap Singh (Jimmy Shergill) is jailed and his Biwi Madhavi (Mahie Gill), who is now pursuing a very blazing political career, leaves no stone unturned to get the plea of Aditya’s bail rejected every time. Aditya’s second wife Ranjana (Soha Ali Khan) snuffs Madhavi’s treacherous schemes, but before she steps forward, Madhavi tries to kill her. The attempt, although does not cost Ranjana her life, but leads her in comma.
One day, when Aditya luckily gets the bail and returns home, the incident of Ranjana strikes him and he is in a kind of breakdown. Madhavi tries to cash in on this and extends Aditya an olive branch, and in a moment of passion, they get physical. Soon after, Madhavi comes to know that she is pregnant and since Aditya wants an heir, he mends his relationship with Madhavi.
Then the London return Uday Pratap Singh (Sanjay Dutt), who also belongs to a royal family and wants to acquire a piece of land to build his hotel there, enters the plot and meets his mistress Suhani (Chitrangda Singh). Uday’s father (Kabir Bedi) and younger brother Vijay (Deepak Tijori) hate Uday for the disgrace he is causing to the whole family by many means including his relationship with a nautch girl Suhani despite being married and having children. Therefore, they decide to kill Uday through a stooge but kills him in return. Madhavi, who is already acquainted with Uday, does not want to give up her position and power; therefore, she weaves a plan with Uday to Kill Aditya.
Who kills whom and who supports whom in the end is all the crux of the film.
Screenplay and Dialogues
Co-written by Tigmanshu Dhulia and Sanjay Chouhan, the whole plot of the film is patchy and fails to establish a connection between the narration and the audience. The screenplay in the first half is slightly confusing. Due to the abundance of dramatic scenes, the second half pulls some attention but it also fails to be impactful because it lacks the element of thrill. The dialogues by the duo are striking and worth mentioning.
Frankly speaking, Tigmanshu Dhulia has completely messed up the whole film this time. First, in writing and then in direction. The drastic flaws could not have the audience hooked.
Music (Rana Mazumder, Aanjan Bhattacharya, and Siddharth Pandit) is not melodious. Only the ‘Jugni’ song is good. Lyrics (Sandeep Nath, Revant Shergill, Kausar Munir and Kumaar) are fine. Song picturizations are good. Dharma Vish’s background music is really impressive. Amlendu Chaudhary’s cinematography is good. Nishant Khan’s action and stunts are okay. Dhananjoy Mondal’s production designing is alright. Pravin Angre’s editing is sharp.
Sanjay Dutt is good but not outstanding. Jimmy slips into the role of Saheb pretty well. Mahi impresses as a treacherous, ambitions, and seductress. Chitrangda pleases in her brief, but key role. Kabir Bedi (as Uday’s father), Deepak Tijori (as Uday’s brother, Vijay), Nafisa Ali (as Uday’s mother), Soha Ali Khan (as Ranjana, in a special appearance), Zakir Hussain (as Ranjana’s father), Deepraj Rana (as Kanhaiya), Rahul Mittra, Kanika Dang (as Badi Rani) and the rest offer good support.
Why To Watch?
Needless to mention, avoid this awkwardly woven and presented mess even if you are a Sunjay Dutt or Tigmanshu Dhulia fan.
