Saheb Biwi Aur Gangster 3, Movie Review: Sanjay-Chitrangda Film Is Non-Stop Torture

Sanjay Dutt and Chitrangda Singh must be repenting having done Saheb Biwi Aur Gangster 3. They can live in denial till the cows come home, but a frank interview from either on this blunder would do cinema a world of good.

Why did Sanjay Dutt and Chitrangda Singh do this film, is the first thought that comes to your mind right in the first 20 minutes. Yes, you know it from the word 'Go' that this movie is not going anywhere. So yeah, let me tell how it unfolds and what are its salient features:

The film begins with the name Rahul Mitra on screen, written in bold. A green object comes flying and settles between 't' and 'r' to become 't'. Numerology be damned if Mitra, err, Mittra thought it would help him.Worse still, Mittra's self-obsession continues. He hogs the limelight in many frames with Kabir Bedi and Deepak Tijori, brought alive from the days of old. Thank Jesus he doesn't speak much.

Mr Dutt, you are a fine actor. Please get cracking with right scripts, you are definitely making some terrible choices. Bhoomi and now SBAG 3. Are these entirely your decisions? Your first word in the film is 'vodka'! And then every alternate scene you get up to walk away, while we are subjected to a chant of 'He is the Baba. Aaya tera baap'. Kya ho raha tha yeh sab? Did you by any chance dissociate from the film after seeing it a week prior to its release, else why didn't we see you promoting it well enough?

Chitrangda Singh has a few lines in her entry scene, but her attitude drains out immediately as she is relegated to playing second fiddle to Mahie Gill. Goes unnoticed thereafter and you forget that she's the heroine.

Mahie Gill tries hard to exude sensuousness but falls flat on the ground, only to get up and tell her husband Jimmy Sheirgill (numerology again?) that there's a baby in her womb which is the outcome of their 'Bang, Bang, Thank you Ma'am' on the ground, which hurt her because Jimmy left her in the throes of sleep inappropriately dressed.

While Sheirgill's numerologist cannot save this film, we wonder why didn't he advise him to not touch it with a barge pole?

Deepak Tijori might have had the most happening party, last night. Did anyone attend? He gets to kill Chitrangda and Sanjay both. What a comeback!

Kabir Bedi wants us to erase his debonair images which remain in our memory. Any particular reason? Well Bedi, we can definitely meet and talk.

Rahul Mittra, you need to apologise for thinking that we are struck by your extra T and your frequent appearances on screen. Tigmanshu Dhulia who captained the sunk ship should return the ticket cost of every moviegoer who lands up to see this film. Is this the same Dhulia who directed Paan Singh Tomar and Haasil, or did Mittra forcibly take away his director's hat? 

 
A

And pray, why is everyone looking so tired in the film? What a waste of time and resources, and of course, reviewing.

I would've gone with TWO, had Dhulia not left the message in the end that SBAG 4 will be made. Jimmy has told Mahie that he will kill her the day she delivers their baby, but Mahie goes into labour and runs away with the kid as Jimmy exercises in his garden, only to pause and ask 'Koi hai?'! Continue to exercise in your loo rather than head for this garden of stench.
