Ajay Devgan's Son of Sardar Review

Ajay Devgan's Son of Sardar Review

Cast:Ajay Devgn, Sonakshi Sinha, Sanjay Dutt, Juhi Chawla 
Director: Ashwni Dhir


After all the controversies and fist fights, Bollywood's big Diwali clash is here. Ajay Devgn's latest offering "Son Of Sardaar" (SOS) is his latest bet on entering the big leagues of Khans.

Director Ashiwn Dheer does decent job considering his earlier disastrous outing in "One Two Three" and "Atithi Tum Kab Jaoge". Still it is Ajay who saves the film despite bad writing and not so tight direction. You almost feel bad for Ajay as he and the film both miss somebody like Rohit Shetty. 

Overall film is a good entertainer and works for the audience who doesn't mind a weak script and senseless comedy. This can be taken as next installment of "Rowdy Rathore" or "Bodyguard".

Rating : 3/5
Business rating : 3.5/5

The film has a very strong supporting cast and I'd like to single out Mukul Dev for his fantastic performance. His performance is truly first-rate. It's a delight watching Tanuja, one of the finest actresses, after a hiatus. She's wonderful, especially in the final moments of the film. Vindu Dara Singh is hilarious, while Rajesh Vivek leaves an impression. Arjan Bajwa does well in a brief role. Puneet Issar and Mukesh Tiwari are efficient in cameos. On the whole, SON OF SARDAAR is for lovers of hardcore masala movies. If you liked WANTED, DABANGG and ROWDY RATHORE, chances are you will relish SON OF SARDAAR as well. The North Indian audiences in particular and those residing abroad will be simply delighted by this chatpata, masaledaar fare. A wholesome entertainer in the festive period. Go, have a blast!

It takes a mini deluge to bring Son of Sardaar to an end. In the climactic duel between the protagonist (Ajay Devgn) and his chief adversary (Sanjay Dutt), the former is hurled against a water tank. On impact, the thick reservoir wall caves in and a torrent gushes out, carrying bricks, mortar and the two brawling men with it.

After propagating a rustic blood feud for over two hours, the film, by way of closure, invokes the wise words of a spiritual apostle to advocate peace. Forgiveness yields love and love yields God, one character pipes up. No offence meant, Son of Sardaar deserves no form of absolution, no matter who or what your God is. Poppycock in Phagwara: that is what the film should have been named. While the men on the screen defy gravity at will, the narrative defies logic without a care. Looking for genuine fireworks this Diwali? Look elsewhere
