Sanju is a well made movie with wonderful performances. No issues technically. I have a problem with the story though. Entire movie plays like an apology for Sanjay's actions, intention behind the movie is pretty clear.

If his story in itself is apologetic 

then there is little to it that the filmmaker can do 

 

there were a lot of other aspects that were cut down like his wife’s demise & his legal battle for the custody of his daughter (which he won but still gave her up coz she had become accustomed to her life style in US)

 

His comeback with Vastav & how he won Filmfare for that 

 

it was a very sad life full of mistakes,fear & stardom 

 

it had to be what it was

Sanju
It's a treat to watch. Brilliant acting by Ranbir, no one could have done a Sanjay Dutt better than him. In some shots you may feel it's actually Sanjay Dutt on screen. Direction, editing, screenplay is top notch. Script could have been better as they only focused on 2 aspects of his life while ignoring many. They may have tried to glorified Sanjay Dutt but in my eyes he came out as an entitled idiot who only created troubles for his family and his father trying to amend them. Will rate it 4/5.

Not really. It is not about the events that were shown, it is about the way they were presented. Movie felt like a pr machinary for Sanjay with most of the places feeling likr the writer id making excuses for his mistakes. Writing is at fault, no two ways about it.

True, they did try to whitewash his image, providing backstory which has no evidence, giving excuses for his mistakes was laughable, everyone else around him was suffering and he was acting like a schmuck for most of the film, even his father had more reasons to be a drug addict than him. They kinda glorified that part, take drugs and then get into body building, all those effects will be nullified.

If Bollywood continues with this pace, next movie would be about Salman's driver and his alleged reasons - why he drove on footpath that night or why did Salman shot those black bucks, perhaps it was for self defence.

Well if anyone was expecting it to play out any other way then obviously you had wrong expectations 

 

Biopics are usually always soft on the protagonist 

thats why obviously anyone would allow it 

 

if you think he would have allowed the whole “doing heroine on a dying mother’s face” in a negative light than obviously that wasn’t happening 

 

it was a very dark life there’s no two way about it 

& that’s what was screen played beautifully 

 

but yeah he didn’t directly or even indirectly harm anyone....so comparing these events with Salman khan ramming a LandRover on top of multiple roadsiders is not completely right

A biopic soft on the protag is a sh*t biopic.

Biopics are usually made on achievers 

not apologetic personalities 

 

I don’t think there has ever been a true official Biopic on someone like that 

 

 

if you talk about adaptations on Dark Characters before 

ppl like Dawood,Rajan,Abu Salem,Bal Thakrey have all been glorified to a much larger extent in the past 

& the movies did exceptionally well with no one complaining 

maybe coz they weren’t official biopics & weren’t targeting print or satellite media in anyway 

 

No one pointed finger on glorification of Mafia or Politics....where proper crimes against innocents are involved

That is just my opinion dude, don't take it seriously, and for the record, I never liked biopics on Dawood etc or even Dhoni either. The filmmakers have a freedom to make anything they want but what I don't like, is that they exclusively go for sh*t.

Even Catch Me if You Can glorified the scheming part, but they made it intentionally funnier, like how stupid or ignorant people can be in certain situations. Here, it was cringeworthy and no one in real life would act like Sonam or her mom's characters and all the talks of "ghapa ghap" and sleeping with friend's girlfriend and then questioning her character cheapens the overall effect. If the majority of the audience like that, that's a shame.

Salman Khan is genuinely a crap human being 

his vibes & body language are genuinely that of an arrogantly thankless prick 

 

he shouldn’t be compared to Sanjay Dutt I feel 

 

what he did with those ppl on footpath just coz he wanted a high night is genuinely a crime that is much worse than Sanjay Dutt getting hold of a gun to protect his family from threatening rioters 

 

Dutt admitted his Crime & served full 5 years for his mistake which thankfully didn’t do any harm to any individual 

 

If Salman walks free after killing human beings then that is genuinely not fair

Ending is a bit stretched, otherwise it's a great film. I remember when I saw it in theatre, during the ending when MM steals a plane/ship to go and search for Anne...one of the fellow sitting nearby me, shouted "Ab to mar jaa bkl."
