Sanju Movie Review: Sanjay Dutt‘s life has been a roller coaster ride and Ranbir Kapoor boarded this ride to show us the past and the present of the actor. Sanju is escalated to excellence by the stellar performances of its cast.
In a nutshell, the literal star of the film is Ranbir Kapoor, as he seems to metamorphosed into Sanjay Dutt for the 90-minute span of the movie. Sanju doesn’t glorify, defend or hide the facets of the actor’s life; they are just laid out for your perusal along with a touch of usual cinematic liberty.
Sanju Movie Review
The very first thing you will notice about the movie is the uncanny resemblance between the real life and reel life Sanjay. A loud applause for Ranbir for fitting so beautifully into Sanjay’s shoes from his slouching walk, his wide and expressive eyes, the tone of his voice and even the language (a mix of Bumbaiya and posh English)
As the movie progress, you will start noticing the lack of dimensions in the story. Well, we agreed with so much happening around the pace and the story had to be simple, but we felt that Rajkumar Hirani and his team have played quite safe. What this does is that it leaves all the weight on the actor’s shoulder and Kudos to the cast that they managed to pull it through.
In retrospective, maybe that was Hirani’s intention all the while to let the story take a back seat and the cast and their skills take the stage.
As we mentioned, that Ranbir grabs your attention from the first frame and allowing him to do so was his supporting star cast of talented actors like Paresh Rawal, Manisha Koirala, Vicky Kaushal, Jim Sarbh, Dia Mirza, Anushka Sharma and Sonam Kapoor. Each one of them has had done justice to their role. Especially Vicky Kaushal and Paresh Rawal who play the pillars of strength that carry forwards the movie effortlessly.

Kaushal portrays the character of Kamli, Sanjay Dutt’s friend from the US. The actor commands attention when he is on screen as he helps Sanju cope with his troubles and lends a supporting hand. Paresh Rawal perfectly aces the role of a father, who is torn between love for his son and his moral code.
