Verdict – 0/5

 

 
Pros –
1) Sanjay Dutt’s real-life still remains more colorful than this dull movie

 

Cons –
1) Hirani can make Gandhi out of Goebbels. This is white-washing and image makeover of cringeworthy propaganda level.
2) The entire movie insults the intelligence of the audiences in broad-daylight by ridiculously dumbing-down documented history and adding fictional characters in a so-called biopic.
3) Forgettable soundtrack.

 

Quote –
Sanjay Dutt: The first time I took drugs, it was because my father didn’t like me. The second time, it was because my mother was dying. The third time, I was an addict.

VERDICT  – 1/5

 

PROS –
1) Some jokes worked however most of them were cringey.

 

 

CONS –
1) Koi Mil Gaya (2003) meets OMG: Oh My God! (2012). Saurabh Shukla’s Batuk Maharaj from Lage Raho Munna Bhai (2006) got an extension as Tejaswi Maharaj.
2) Aamir’s irritating Bhojpuri accent.
3) Anuska’s boring romantic subplot.
4) “Wrong Number” was intended to be the new “Jaadu Ki Jhappi” but it backfired.
5) If you have seen OMG: Oh My God! (2012), this movie got the same message but lesser content.
