The Ranbir Kapoor starrer biopic – Sanju, is all set to overwhelm, surprise, shock, and probably move us all to tears on 29th June. At least that’s what we felt after watching the trailer itself. So while we count days to its release we couldn’t help but jot-down reasons why this movie will be spectacular!
Here’s why we’re psyched about this cinematic wonder!
The mysteries of Sanjay Dutt’s life unfold
The slogan of the movie goes “One man.. Many lives” drawing a chaotic picture of the extreme highs and lows Sanjay Dutt has faced in his exhilarating journey called life.
From being a drug addict to losing his mother, going through a nasty breakup and being wrapped into the underworld of controversy and finally going behind the bars – is this the same man we’re talking about? As a matter of fact, yes.
We sure want to know how Sanju survived through it all, physically and mentally, turning into a legend, and the simplistic family man he is today.
Ranbir is ditto Baba
It’s uncanny, the way Ranbir resembles Sanjay. But the transformation and transitions we see are not all makeup and CGI. Ranbir basically morphed into baba or channelled him completely to look his part. If you ask us, he has created an all-new standard of being a method actor.
Along with 5-6 hours of prosthetic makeup before every shoot, Ranbir went through rigorous training to get rid of his leanness and adapt to baba’s bulky physique. We know Ranbir is not a fan of the gym, so this means a great deal.
Ranbir has also aced impersonating Dutt’s demeanor and mannerisms, which might make us wonder if we’re watching Sanjay Dutt star in his own biopic. Wow?
Raju Hirani – the mastermind with a heart
The maker of this cinematic wonder has never failed to send his message across with his past blockbusters like PK, 3 Idiots & The Munnabhai movies. No wonder, we’re overconfident about this movie being paisa-vasool too!
He’s known for his feel-good cinema and emotionally driven stories. Talking about the challenge he faced with Sanju, he told Rajeev Masand in an interview that biopics are normally centred around heroism but Dutt’s life is very tragic, thus making it a great challenge.
But we trust Raju to do the right thing because he has known Dutt personally and can give us a perfect insight into his many agonies and joys.
The mindblowing star-studded cast
While Ranbir is the cherry on the cake, the frosting consists of maestros like Paresh Rawal as Sunil Dutt, Manisha Koirala as Nargis, Sonam Kapoor as Tina Munim, Dia Mirza as Manyata Dutt, Anushka Sharma as a journalist and many more charmers like Jim Sarbh, Vicky Kaushal and Boman Irani. Phew! That might just be the most happening cast of 2018, and it’s only June!
Also, there’s probably a few more special appearances we don’t yet know about.
Need we say more?
Adventure packed with amazing music!
Though this film has multiple composers, the one name that excited us was none other than – A.R.Rahman. He here to create magic and mayhem with his 80’s inspired Mozart-like music for the film.
What’s surprising for a Raju Hirani film is to have new composers on the block rather than just established ones. There’s Vikram Montrose with the brilliant Har Maidan Fateh and the composer duo Rohan Rohan with the foot-tapping number Main Badhiya Tu Bhi Badhiya – we’re sold already!
Sanjay Dutt has apparently refused to watch the movie before it releases because he allegedly wants to relive his life like an audience. The actor reportedly said that he will watch the movie once it releases in the theatres. So, don’t be surprised if you find Dutt enjoying his biopic right next to you.
We’re sure we convinced you to watch this one, didn’t we?
