Ranbir Kapoor starrer Sanju is one of the most fascinating films to be releasing this year. His uncanny resemblance to Sanjay Dutt, the cheerful teaser and all the curiosity about the plot are fueling the excitement among the audience. And the trailer just took that excitement a notch higher.
There is no doubt that superstar Sanjay Dutt has garnered immense love and respect in his career spanning over three decades. However, his personal life has always been overshadowed by mystery. From a following of die-hard fans to brushes with the underworld, Dutt faced it all. And the Sanju trailer promises a beautiful exploration of all those successes and tragedies.
Watch the trailer here:
The trailer begins on a cheerful note with Sanjay Dutt (Ranbir Kapoor) waving when stepping out of the prison and playing the air guitar. However, it gets dark with glimpses of the actor’s struggle with the police, media and personal relationships. It gets particularly dark as we see him deal with addiction and being accused of terrorism. The most interesting bits include Anushka Sharma’s blue-eyed appearance and the first look at the characters played by Manisha Koirala, Jim Sarbh and Vicky Kaushal.
When it comes to biopics on film stars, the area is highly unexplored in Bollywood. This is what makes Sanju such a fresh whiff of air for movie buffs and critics alike. And the trailer has obviously proven that the film has stayed close to reality in more ways than one. It is evident that Rajkumar Hirani has faithfully documented the highlights of Sanjay Dutt’s journey and maintained a balance of humor, heartbreak and struggle. Hirani is also the one who revived the actor’s career with the 2003 comedy Munnabhai MBBS.
