The film Saheb Biwi Aur Gangster, which released in the year 2011, came from Saade Kadmo but, it surprised everyone by breaking records at the box office. And being happy with this, the makers brought its sequel, Saheb Biwi Aur Gangster Returns, in the year 2013. While its first part saw a tremendous combination of sex and thriller, its sequel barely had some sizzling points. And now its makers have brought the third part of Saheb Biwi Aur Gangster i.e. Saheb Biwi Aur Gangster 3, which is releasing in theaters this week. This time Sanjay Dutt has been shown as a gangster, while Chitrangada Singh has a new entry. So will Saheb Biwi Aur Gangster 3 be able to hold its own? Or will it fail to entertain? Let’s review.
Saheb Biwi Aur Gangster 3 starts from where its second part ended and during this time the clever games between Saheb and Biwi continue. Aditya Pratap Singh (Jimmy Shergill) is still in jail desperate to come out of jail so that he can regain his lost powers and run his politics. At the same time, his sensual ‘wife’ Madhavi Devi (Mahi Gill) becomes an MLA and does everything according to her wish. One day Aditya hatched a clever plan and came out on bail. Madhavi learns that Saheb has been released, and after that she will once again be forced to remain imprisoned behind closed doors. And then she starts looking for new avenues for herself and in the process she meets gangster, Uday Pratap Singh (Sanjay Dutt). Abandoned by her family and scorned by her love, the beautiful Suhani (Chitrangada Singh), Uday agrees to help Madhavi Devi. What happens next will be known only after watching the rest of the film.
The story of Tigmanshu Dhulia and Sanjay Chauhan is weak and rests on a very nuanced plot. In fact one can say that there is really no story in the film. It has many characters and many stories run simultaneously. Tigmanshu Dhulia and Sanjay Chauhan’s screenplay is not spoken properly and thus it disappoints. Thankfully the dialogues of Tigmanshu Dhulia and Sanjay Chauhan are superb which saves the film to some extent and creates interest in some scenes.
Tigmanshu Dhulia’s direction is flawed and it’s quite a surprise who achieved , Paan Singh Tomar  And even made the earlier parts of Saheb Biwi Aur Gangster, he could not show any miracle in it. There are many scenes that start and end abruptly. VFX is weak in many places. Nothing special happens in many parts of the film. There are only a few scenes that work well with the performance. Another issue with the film is its length. It is quite long and nothing special happens in the film till the end, which tests your patience.
After the second part, Saheb Biwi Aur Gangster 3, came after a full five years but its recall value is not that strong. The makers should have realized this and could have given some recaps. But that didn’t happen and as a result, the audience gets upset with these new additions. His story is half-baked. The audience never got to know in what situation he had to leave India, get separated from Chitrangada Singh, and marry someone else, it all seems incomprehensible. Although some scenes are very good. And there is the scene where Mahi Gill picks up a hunk from a party and takes him to the mansion, it will make you laugh with laughter. Some of Jimmy’s scenes work out quite well, especially his conversation with Mahi. When viewed in isolation, these scenes look great but on the whole, they are all hidden due to some mistakes.
The presence of Sanjay Dutt, was envisioned to take the film to a different level. But sadly, he seems quite disinterested and tired and fails to do justice to his character. But there are some clapping dialogues spoken from his mouth, which will impress the single screen audience. Jimmy Shergill once again leaves a mark of his acting. Jimmy lives the character of Saheb completely and it is visible too. This film will disappoint but not Jim. Mai Gill is also exceptional and arguably makes the most of the impact. The way he has played his character is worth watching. He definitely deserves to be seen more and worked in many better films. Chitrangada Singh really gives her best shot and her entry scene is really impressive. But after that, he hardly has anything to do in the film. Deepak Tijori (Vijay Singh), Zakir Hussain (Bunny Uncle) and Kabir Bedi (Uday’s father) are average. Deepraj Rana (Kanhaiya) plays the loyal supporting role well. Pamela Singh Bhutoria (Deepal) is very promising. Nafisa Ali (Uday’s mother) leaves an impression. Soha Ali Khan is fine.
The film’s music disappoints, and the songs seem forced to add, adding to the length of the film. ‘Baba Theme’ has messy touch while ‘Kesariya Jugni’ suits the opening credits. ‘Lag Ja Gale’ was promoted a lot but it all went in vain. Dharam Vish’s background score is quite encouraging but badly chopped at some places. Amalendu Choudhary’s cinematography is fine. Dhananjay Mandal’s production design and Tulika Dhulia’s costumes are rich, authentic and eye-catching. Nishant Khan’s action is nothing special. Praveen Angre’s editing could have been slicker and, in many places, smoother.
Overall, Saheb Biwi Aur Gangster 3 disappoints with its length, disappointing, flawed script and haphazard direction. The film, at the box office, will hamper its earning potential due to the above mentioned shortcomings and lack of buzz.
