It has only been four days since the release of Sanju and it has already smashed the box office records. The Ranbir Kapoor starrer’s collections barely took any time to cross the ₹100 crore mark. Surpassing the likes of Baahubali 2, the film created history by grossing a whopping ₹34.75 cr on the day of release itself!
Here’s a look at the top 5 reasons that made this film such a huge success.
1. Reel Vs. Real Sanju: The Stunning Resemblance
Ranbir Kapoor’s stunning transformation was the first most striking element of Sanju that attracted most people. The perfection with which the actor replicated Sanjay Dutt’s voice and mannerisms is truly remarkable. In addition to that, the stunning physical transformation and makeup struck the right chord. Naturally, it generated curiosity and interest thereby pulling in more people.
2. The Star Power
The stellar cast of Sanju plays real-life characters including popular film stars who were an important part of Sanjay Dutt’s life. For instance, Manisha Koirala made her big Bollywood comeback in the role of Nargis and Paresh Rawal appeared as Sunil Dutt. In addition to that, Anushka Sharma, Dia Mirza, Jim Sarbh and Vicky Kaushal enhanced the film’s appeal.
3. The Curious Story of Sanjay Dutt
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. Sanju promises a beautiful exploration of all those successes and tragedies.
4. The Rajkumar Hirani Factor
Be it 3 Idiots, PK, or the Munnabhai series, Rajkumar Hirani has created some of the finest films in Bollywood. Naturally, the audience felt more inclined to watch the latest from his kitty!
5. The Catchy Music
The music of Sanju is a refreshing mix of retro beats from the 40s, club numbers from the 80s and edgy tunes that stick in your head for hours. Even the promotional numbers created enough buzz to drive huge numbers to the cinemas.
Produced by Rajkumar Hirani Films and Vinod Chopra Films, Sanju is an ideal mix of everything good. Together with entertaining elements like Ranbir’s accurate look, powerful dialogues and impressive cinematography, the film proves to be a magnet for a broad range of movie-lovers.
