Sanju has been one of the most highly anticipated biopics of 2018. The trailer just dropped and has left us nothing less than mesmerised. The biopic looks like nothing in the history of Bollywood and is bound to leave its viewers awestruck and hungry for more. Ranbir Kapoor’s out of the world look clubbed with his exceptional performance makes it hard to not see Sanjay Dutt himself in the movie. After watching the trailer, these are our top five takeaways:
A Life Worth Witnessing
Sanjay Dutt’s life has remained as one of the most remarkable lives known to the masses. It also happens to be a life shrouded with mystery, only until now. Sanju tells the authentic story of Baba and gets into the nitty gritties of his prolific life, right from the start. The rollercoaster plot takes you through Dutt’s highs and lows and shows how he dealt with it all. The actor went through a phase of dizzying levels of success and overwhelmingly low failures. Sanju takes the audience all throughout the journey in an exceptionally engaging style. The trailer had us latched to the edge of our seats. We can only wait in desperation for the movie to drop this June 29th!
An Unbelievably Original Look
When Sanjay Dutt saw Ranbir playing him in Sanju, he confessed to finding it almost unbelievable to see the look resemble himself with such remarkable similarity. Throughout the trailer, we get glimpses of Ranbir Kapoor playing Dutt at different stages of his life. We have seen the actor play some brilliant roles in his iconic films such as Barfi and Rockstar. But, Sanju showcases Ranbir Singh in a never seen before avatar. The role he plays along with his brilliant performance truly brings Sanjay Dutt’s character to life and could be compared to none other.
The Exceptional Scripting & Dialogues
Packed with intense drama and emotions, one of the aspects which truly stood out in the trailer is the genius scripting of the movie. The dialogues couldn’t get more genuine and would remind anyone of Sanjay Dutt in an instant. Ranbir Kapoor does an exceptional job in terms of delivering the lines with uncanny similarity to Baba himself. The trailer shows us several scenarios throughout Sanjay Dutt’s life, and the contextual change of language and tone adds the additional layer of originality to the entire cinematic experience.
A Stellar Cast
Dotted with veteran actors, Sanjay Dutt’s biopic Sanju is in extremely safe hands. Every actor in the movie are masters of the industry and has delivered some of their best performances throughout their long and prolific careers. The stellar line-up includes Paresh Rawal, Vicky Kaushal, Manisha Koirala, Dia Mirza, Sonam Kapoor, Anushka Sharma, Boman Irani, Jim Sarbh and Ranbir Kapoor. Each of them are expected to play some of the most pivotal roles in the movie. We simply cannot wait for these exceptional performances once the movie releases!
Rajkumar Hirani: A Fitting Director
One of the industry’s finest, Hirani has given the Bollywood audience some of the best movies throughout his career. Some of his well known movies include Bollywood cinematic icons like Munna Bhai series, 3 Idiots and PK. With Sanju, Rajkumar Hirani shows tremendous promise to give his audience one of his finest pieces of directorial work till date.
