Review of

Son Of Sardaar  (2012 - Hindi)

Son Of Sardaar movie review, and Son Of Sardaar critics rating, comments on Son Of Sardaar

Diwali has been one of those very special occasions for big movie releases in our Hindi Film Industry from a real long time. Big banners would plan their release keeping in mind the Diwali Holidays. Gradually, more festivals added for the Top slot such as Christmas, Eid and Dashera, But Diwali still retains its own charm. Even an average entertainer makes a clean sweep at box office as people are in a festive mood, wanting to just sit back and take it light. There are few such movies which thanks to good promotion, marketing and Diwali buzz manage to have decent run during these days, but as the festive days pass by, the movie too starts to lose its fizz. So in such a safe zone enters Ajay Devgan who has been enjoying a tremendous Diwali releases from last few years, delivering huge comical hits like Golmaal returns, All The Best & Golmaal 3. This year he returns with his latest no-brainer entertainer 'Son of Sardaar' with loads of Marketing, Promotion and Controversies. Everything looks in the film's favor, but then there are times when the saying 'All that Glitters is not Gold' comes true. So let's find out whether this 'Son of Sardaar' will be able to match the success level of its ancestors {Ajay's past Diwali Super Hits} or might end up just like a star son basking in their glory.

'SOS' tells the story of a family rivalry between the Sandhus and Randhawas in a small place in Punjab. Years pass by and Randhawa's son Jassi {Ajay Devgan} returns from London to sell his ancestral property. On his way, he meets Sukh {Sonakshi Sinha} and later her family members who turn out to be none other than his archrivals The Sandhus {Sanjay Dutt, Vindu Dara Singh, Mukul Dev, Tanuja, Etc}. The Sandhus want to kill Jassi and take revenge. What happens next is what the film about.

The film is a remake of a South SuperHit 'Maryada Ramanna' (2010), directed by S.S Rajamouli whose two Super Hits have already seen remakes this year in 'Rowdy Rathore' & 'Makkhi'. The makers of 'SOS' have changed the typography from south to total north and rearranged the whole story as per that settings. After the initial overdone scenes in London, the main movie begins with Ajay's coming back to India. There are some Hilarious moments in the first half such as the whole Sanjay Dutt ' Juhi Chawla Track followed by Mukesh Tiwari's visit at Sanjay Dutt's house, Ajay'Sonakshi Meet in the Train followed by their bonding out there, Ajay Devgan at Sanjay Dutt's house and later refusing to leave and few more. Also, some minor moments like Sanjay Dutt's Behind the Truck types one liners, the whole Tanuja Track, Vindu's Ice-Cream temptations and few more scenes which could've been shaped up much better. 
On the flip side, the films loses its charm post interval as the screenplay goes for a toss and the entertainment quotient starts to fade out. The movie just keeps going on but there are no High moments to keep you thrilled and entertained. Also the Computer Generated Effects were highly irritating and unreal {Ajay on Two Horses, Ajay on Big Ben, All the Actions Scenes, Ajay's Horse Chase scenes and much more}. If only the makers had inserted a few more hilarious scenes, the audience would surely have accepted it despite all its flaws and weakness. You don't get bored in the film as the narration keeps going on, but as said earlier, except few songs and minor scenes, there is nothing left to boast of in the post-interval session. Camera work is fine, but as said earlier the Sp. Effects were crap. Editing is fine, though the Pre-Interval portions (where Ajay refuses to leave Sanjay's House) could have been trimmed a little.

Music by Sajid Wajid, Himesh Reshammiya and Sandeep Chowta has some peppy songs like 'Rani Main Tu Raja', 'Bichdann' & 'Po Po' which go well with the light-weight mood of the film. 'Son of Sardaar', 'Yeh Jo Halki' & 'Tu Kamaal' are just average. Background Music is at times a bit too loud, and nothing great on an overall basis either.

And while Director Ashwni Dhir has given us in the past two super-duds like 'Krazzy 4' and 'Challa Mussaddi', he has also proven his mettle with a rib-tickler like 'Atithi Tum Kab Jaoge?'. This time he returns back with this Action Comedy, but the comedy works only in the first half, going for a complete miss in the latter. The action scenes are overdone and later the entertainment level too starts to dip when dramatic portions take over the film. Sadly those Dramatic moments too lack the grip, having hardly anything to offer. He had good theme and could've done wonders with his type of comedy if he had worked bit hard on the screenplay and writing of the film.

Ajay Devgan is cute in comical scenes and does his part with total conviction, though one often gets a feeling he still could've done much better. Looks like he was over-confident with the festive release thus making it bit half baked at places. Sonakshi Sinha is fine, but nowhere as charming as she was in 'Dabangg' or 'Rowdy Rathore'. She should start watching her weight, as it started gaining more attention than her face charm. Sanjay Dutt does his part very well and one might love his One Liners and funny scenes, though he looks pretty worn out. Juhi Chawla is sweet in her small role. Tanuja, Vindu Dara Singh and Mukul Dev play their parts with total conviction; wished their tracks had meaty parts for them. Sanjay Mishra, Arjan Bajwa and Akhlendra Mishra hardly had anything to offer. Mukesh Tiwari in small cameo was hilarious. Salman Khan in Sp.App was welcoming, though had nothing to do with the film, It would've been great if he was used in the climax scene as well.

So bol meri 'Filmi Khopdi' iss film mein kitna hain Dum ?
Dum hain, but only in the first half with some Hilarious moments, a few enjoyable sequences, followed by some foot tapping numbers. But as movie veers ahead, there is nothing much left for its audience to cherish or take back home. The makers would probably survive thanks to Ajay's past Diwali track-record and the Festive mood but after the safe zone {Diwali} is over, the movie will most perhaps fizzle out and vanish in thin air. 'SOS' has Big stars, a festive release, huge publicity, marketing and controversies too but lacks over the entertainment and good screenplay making it just like a Star Son who has its fathers charms, but still chooses to bask only in his father's glory.

Ratings : 2.25/5

Son of Sardaar: Calculated entertainment

 
NOVEMBER 13, 2012

In a recent interview, a film-maker described a movie as one "made with a calculator". He might just have been talking about Ashwni Dhir's "Son of Sardaar". For a film that talks of heart and emotion, this is a movie made with cold-hearted calculation.

"Son of Sardaar" is a Diwali film, made with the sole intention of making money during the festival of lights, and stuffed with what Bollywood thinks is the complete package — romance, comedy and action all in one movie. But what is it they say about being a jack of all trades?

Dhir isn't too keen on being the master of this one. His story is one that could be stretched to fit any plot device, whether it is time for a song or some action.

Ajay Devgn plays Jaswinder Singh Randhawa aka Jassi — who goes to his father's village to settle a property dispute. When asked to meet the local strongman, Jassi discovers that Billu (Sanjay Dutt) and his relatives are out to kill him.

Billu won't harm him as long as Jassi is a guest at his house. When Jassi learns this, he makes every attempt to make sure he doesn't cross the threshold, faking aches and employing gags to ensure he is always out of harm's way.

None of the gags are that funny. This is the Punjab that Bollywood loves, and has showcased for many years. The men are beefy, hearty and laugh at anything. The women are coy, wear designer kurtas while cavorting in fields and seem to have no role other than being a plot device.Sonakshi Sinha and Dutt holding up a Happy Diwali card. If that isn't cold-hearted, what is?

Movie review: Son Of Sardar, is the Sardar of Headache

Abhishek Gupta [ Updated 13 Nov 2012, 07:46:51 ]

New delhi, Nov 13: Rating-**

Cast: Ajay Devgn, Sonakshi Sinha, Sanjay Dutt, Juhi Chawla, Mukul Dev and Vindu Dara Singh
Director: Ashwani Dheer
Music Director: Sajid Ali , Wajid Ali , Himesh Reshammiya , Sandeep Chowta

Last week the not so heard 'Its rocking dard-e-Disco' went bizarre that even Bappi Da regret for stepping into the actor's shoes. And this week the much awaited 'Son of Sardar', four days before a Friday release enters the multiplexes in order to credit the big weekend this Diwali.But bursting firecrackers this weekend would be a better option than to shed out your cash on Ajay Devgan's 'Son of Sardar'. The show opens up with  Jassi played by Devgan's two horse riding stunt reinventing his 'Phool aur Kaante' and 'Golmaal returns' trademark which looked more feasible. Ajay comes to Punjab to sell off his 5-acre land. But it is not a chocolate cake. Back in town, there is old age rivalry, brought forward by Billu portrayed by Sanjay, is desperate to destroy Jassi. The situation looks more infuriated when Sanjay's two younger brothers played by Bindu Dara Singh and Mukul Dev in their childhood are vowed that they won't have ice-cream and coldrink unless they take their father's revenge. Poor little kids! Don't worry they are grown up now, but it's still worse. Being a Punjabi, no drinks. Awful!Appearing fourth time this year, Sonakshi playing Billu's sister Jiya, falls in love with Jassi, in a typical love at first sight, but both doesn't confess. Jassi is invited as a guest in her home which follows a rule that Guest is a like a God (Mehmaan Bhagwaan ke Samaan hota), even if the guest is harsh, they swallow their bitterness. But the moment they enter out they are treated by the real angry Punjabis. But yup this so called rule works as a savior for Ajay's life. Apart from Sonakshi who else has a soft corner for Ajay? Well its comeback lady Juhi Chawla, who supports the duo and also flirts with Billu.The run and chase sequence is followed at numerous intervals and ends up with nothing new as predictable. Billu forgets his rivalry after a tough hand to hand fight with Jassi and agrees to Jiya's marriage with him. Even the old-aged Bebe who provoked him for the revenge, calms him to forget the rivalry.Mr. Director Ashwani Dhir, please understand the Sikhs formula is not the hit formula anymore. The jokes used in the flicks don't fit the portrayal of Sardar. In a scene Ajay asks a heavy beard man aged around 80: which is the oldest Sikh temple in the town? Clueless aged man accompanied by two other reply that the answer could be given by an old person only.  You want to laugh but you end up with an unreal smile on your face. This fake smile you have to maintain throughout 2 hrs 20 minutes runtime. The action sequence is adopted at three to four occasions which have nothing new to offer you; instead you would resemble a Rohit Shetty drama. A climax scene where the baddies are bashed up to air will remind you of a Hollywood flick 'Immortal' but when you realize that Jassi's bag did this wonder your whole excitement comes down to earth.

Ajay Devgan after Golmaal 3 and Singham and Bol Bachchan show, we don't expect such a bizarre from you. You requested "Paaji kaddi hass vi liya karo" (Please laugh at time) why should we? In fact it was the hardest thing to deliver. 
Sonakshi Sinha coming out with "Chal Jhoothi" verdict on every other person, we think that you are the biggest liar as you promised in your promotion to give us a blast this Diwali. Your Nakhra's doesn't work this time again.

After Agneepath, we can't expect anything lesser than the monsterous Kancha from Munnabhai 'Sanjay Dutt. The one liner used in the flick lands him down. And even the animated storm following him doesn't add to the weightage.

Above all the supporting actress Juhi Chawla looks better in her acts. Her way to slay Sanjay looks charming and would remind you of some of her fine acts from archives.Apart for 'Tu Bichlan' and 'Son of Sardar' track no other song will stay in your mind once you leave theatres. The first half could have been trimmed a bit as it would be difficult to digest the non-sense jokes. While in the second half if you are done with your pop corn or other stuff you won't wait for a single minute to go out at the beverage counter whatever extra time it takes.I'll go 2 out of 5 for Son of Sardar. The flick is a Sardar of headache. Go in with heavy patience and carry cotton for your ears.

SON OF SARDAAR movie review: over-the-top and occasionally entertaining!

SON OF SARDAAR movie review: over-the-top and occasionally entertaining!
Sign up for the BL newsletter!

Ajay Devgn's typical masala entertainer defies logic, but doesn't fail to tickle your funny bone

If mindless entertainment is what you are seeking this Diwali then Ashwni Dhir's Son Of Sardaar-starring Ajay Devgn, Sanjay Dutt and Sonakshi Sinha-is the perfect pick. So keep both your snobbish taste and your common sense aside to enjoy this extremely predictable, over-the-top filmy and sporadically entertaining drama. What makes Son Of Sardaar worth a watch is the simplicity of its narration, its inherently nonsense humour and its quirky characters who know where to draw the line. Add to this the much-needed tadka of some larger-than-life action sequences coupled with fine camera work and snappy editing and the movie holds your attention, even if it does so in parts.

So you have Jassi Randhawa a happy-go-lucky young Sardaar (Ajay Devgn) who has no idea whatsoever about his family's action-filled murky past and the legendary feud between his family, Randhawas and the archrivals Sandhus. It is only when his colleague discloses certain secrets that Jassi learns about his family and about his ancestral property at his native place in Punjab. He decides to go the village. On his journey, Jassi bumps into Sukh ( Sonakshi Sinha) and both fall in love with each other, but neither confesses their true feelings. Once landed in his Village, Jassi realises that Sukh belongs to the Sandhus' family headed by the mighty Ranvijay Singh ( Sanjay Dutt). Things become worse when both Jassi and Ranvijay know that they are enemies because of that infamous bloody saga that took place 25 years ago.

Ranvijay is now thirsty for Jassi's blood,but can't kill him so long as Jassi remains his guest. (Atithi Devo Bhav, you see!) Even Jassi knows that the moment he steps out of Ranvijay's house he will be chopped into pieces by his otherwise warm, welcoming and large-hearted host. If one tries every trick in the book to stay inside the house, the other uses every possible strategy to drive the young Sardaar out. Son Of Sardaar is the tale of who outwits the other and how. Will Jassi win Ranvijay over with his values, his might and his honesty to marry the mundi ( Sonakshi) from the house, and most importantly to escape from the almost certain clutches of death.

It's a no brainer to guess what conclusion can one expect of this typical churn-off-the-mill-looking entertainer. But Son Of Sardaar has its moments mainly because of the characters involved who give their best to make this ordinary tale look impressive. Ajay Devgn portrays the vulnerable and ready to fight-if-instigated Sardaar really well. Sanjay Dutt's comic timing and his personality stay with you even hours after you leave the theatre. Sonakshi Sinha is impressive and looks an authentic Panjabi mundi. A special mention here for Juhi Chawla, Mukul Dev and Vindu Dara Singh who hold your attention with their antics. Sajid Wajid's music is melodious, but far from impressive.

Over all, Son Of Sardaar revels gleefully in its silliness.Watch it, if you will, for the comical sketches of its characters, some gravity-defying-fights and most importantly for its genuine intention to entertain!

Rating: 2.5/5

Music Director: Sajid Ali , Wajid Ali , Himesh Reshammiya , Sandeep Chowta

Release Date: 13 November 2012

The action comedy film of the year "Son of Sardar" starringAjay Devgn, Juhi Chawla, Sanjay Dutt and Sonakshi Sinha in the lead roles is all set to release this Diwali on Nov 13 to entertain the audiences through some hilarious comedy. So, read for the moview review of Son of Sardar, pre-review of Son of Sardar, story, release date, expectations of Son of Sardar before the release of the movie.

Review and Story

Directed by Ashwani Dheer, Son of Sardar (SOS) is a remake of a Telugu movie Maryada Ramanna that was based on the 1923 American silent movie Our Hospitality. Son of Sardar is basically a romantic-comedy-action movie based on Rajveer Singh (played by Ajay Devgan) who returns to his paternal village where he meets Jiya (Sonakshi Sinha) and immediately fall in love with her.

Rajveer approaches a feudal lord (Sanjay Dutt) to sell 5-acre property owned by himself but situations turn around and the feudal lord comes to know that the father of Rajveer had killed feudal lord's brother and thus and gets trapped in his house. The story proceeds ahead with struggle of Rajveer to escape from death.

Ajay Devgan has already proved his brilliance in comedy with earlier hits Golmal and Bol Bacchcan and expected to repeat the same. Sonakshi Sinha look fabulous as usual and Sanjay Dutt as feudal lord looks giant.

Overall, the stage is all set for a great comedy film at the end of the year. So, watch out for Son of Sardar for some hilarious time pass.
