Saheb Biwi Aur Gangster 3 Review & Rating|
Saheb Biwi Aur Gangster Review: Gangster Found Lacking
What started as a homage to the classic Saheb Biwi Aur Ghulam, the romantic thriller drama series Saheb Biwi Aur Gangster scored very high with the critics and became moderately successful at the box office. But the second movie has the distinction of being a superior experience compared to the first film. Both movies made stars out of Jimmy Shergill and Mahie Gill despite them both being overtaken by Irrfan Khan and Randeep Huda.
With the addition of the star power of Sanjay Dutt who is riding high on the success of his biopic alongside the returning lead cast, SBG series is never more highly anticipated. Has Tigmanshu Dhulia conjured up the same magic or not can be known with Saheb Biwi Aur Gangster 3 review.
Aditya Pratap Singh, an ex-Royal, freshly comes out of the jail and tries to get his power back. The villain for him is not the gangster, but his wife, Madhavi Devi, played by Mahie Gill who displayed her seductive side. Sanjay Dutt is the gangster Raam Baba who is an expert in the Russian style of gambling. He has a troubled marriage and connects with his girlfriend played by Chitrangada Singh.
While in the earlier installments the gangsters stole the show, here in Saheb Biwi Aur Gangster 3, the lead pair of Jimmy Shergill and Mahie Gill take the cake. Sanjay Dutt might have thought of another Munnabhai in the offering for him, but unfortunately, this seemingly darker take on the gangster with medical aspirations is not up to notch. He has a pub in London, named blatantly as House of Lords.
He comes back to the country to ask for his share in the property that pap played by Kabir Bedi and brother played by Deepak Tijori Deepak Tijori are unwilling to part with. Their performance is as yawn-worthy as possible. And to add insult to injury for the audience, a screechy Baba theme song plays each time Sanjay Dutt walks into the frame. It is painful to see him trying to fit into his character that just isn’t cut out for his Munna Bhai swagger.
Writing by the duo of Sanjay Chauhan and Tigmanshu Dhulia failed miserably this time. Though the first half of the film makes the audience interest piqued with decent proceedings, the second half is a torture. By the time the climax rolls out, the audience starts to cringe. It is very unimaginative on the part of the screenplay writers. Tigmanshu's direction is no different. That is the tragedy of Saheb Biwi Aur Gangster.
The cinematography is good in parts. It captured the essential mood of the film well but unfortunately feels uneven. The less we talk about the music the better. The production seems hurried and we think it might have been rounded in hurry. The editing should have been better with parts of the unnecessary proceedings should have been chopped off mercilessly.
Overall, for those who love the franchise, it is not even a passable watch. Except for terrific performances by Jimmy Shergill and Mahie Gill, a few good laughs, Saheb Biwi Aur Gangster 3 is not a movie recommended to watch this weekend. Watch the first two parts and marvel at the storytelling than watching the painful death of such a beloved franchise in the theatres.

Sanjay Dutt’s Performance As a Gangster
Sanjay Dutt is one of the Bollywood heroes who plays the negative characters exceptionally well. He has impressed us in movies such as Khalnayak, Vaastav, Kaante, Musafir and Agneepath.

Superb direction by Tigmanshu Dhulia
Tigmanshu Dhulia who has delivered several hit movies including Paan Singh Tomar, Saheb, Biwi Aur Gangster, and Saheb, Biwi Aur Gangster Returns is directing Saheb, Biwi Aur Gangster 3. He is known to incorporate ruthless action sequences in the movies, which makes it a must watch for an action-freak.

Both Jimmy and Mahi bring the intriguing aspect to the film and this makes the film interesting with twists. In Saheb, Biwi Aur Gangster Returns, Madhavi (Gill) and her lover, Indrajeet (Irrfan Khan) send Aditya (Sheirgill) to prison. How he returns and what will be his next step make the movie watchable.
Chitrangada Singh's Role In The Movie
