Film initial report is good and business should pick up with weekend is approaching. A positive vibe of the prequel is also helping to keep the buzz of the film alive.

Saheb Biwi Aur Gangster Returns Has Dull Start At The Box Office

March 8th, 2013 by Mukul Kr. Sharma

Saheb, Biwi Aur Gangster Returns, that released today, had a pretty dull start with a mere 20-25% average occupancy rate all over the country. The movie showed better response in Delhi NCR area; but it seemsSBAGR will need a huge turn-around to survive at the Domestic Box Office.

The film is finding hard to create expected waves at the Box Office; mainly due to the ongoing examinations resulting into  poor opening for the film.

Nevertheless, the film still has chances to pick up in the evening and night shows. Saheb, Biwi Aur Gangster Returns has garnered good reviews from the critics, which will help the film to make business in the coming days. The movie should witness good business in the weekends.

Critics Reviews

 
Bollywood Hungama | Taran Adarsh

With Tigmanshu at the helm of affairs, be assured, you are in for a treat as far as performances are concerned. In fact, not just the title leads, but each and every actor in the cast delivers top-quality performances. At the same time, the characters are so well penned that no one deprives the limelight from the other. Irrfan is simply outstanding. The magnificence that Tigmanshu and Irrfan created in HAASIL, CHARAS and PAAN SINGH TOMAR is evident in SAHEB BIWI AUR GANGSTER RETURNS as well. Jimmy is commanding yet again, pulling off his performance with remarkable ease. Mahie plays the scheming wife with accomplishment. The various shades in her character provide her ample scope to excel yet again. Soha looks the part completely and despite the presence of powerful actors, she stands out with a solid performance.

NDTVMovies | Saibal Chatterjee

Flush with vibrant colours and cinematic flourishes, Saheb Biwi Aur Gangster Returns is a riveting and buoyant film that, despite being nearly two and a half hours long, manages to keep the viewer interested in the strange, strange ways of men and women bent upon pressing the self-destruct button.

The dramatic narrative core of the film is suffused with a delirious quality that is both delightful and disorienting.

RECOMMENDED
 
 
Zeenews | Ananya Bhattacharya

Mahie Gill the Bertha Mason-ish Biwi who shoots a gun with as much ease as she does her glances, is terrific for want of a more intense word. She packs her performance with extreme poignancy on the one hand and shrewdness on the other. Nobody can even afford to neglect either Mahie the actor or Madhvi the character. While you can't help not admiring her accomplishments with the brain, you end up feeling sad for this woman who can stop short at nothing in her quest of getting her Saheb back.

RECOMMENDED
 
 
Rediff | Raja Sen

The performances are unanimously strong. Irrfan, with several quivers full of the dialogues he likes, is a riot at first, and then a delight to watch gradually unravel. Mahie is intentionally exaggerated but performs with significant flair, and makes sure her barbs sting. Soha has the stateliness for the part but plays naive in almost childlike fashion, which is great. Raj Babbar and Pravesh Rana are very well cast. And we must also single out Rajeev Gupta as the film's funniest character, the theatrically inept politician, the tomato.

RECOMMENDED
 
 
Glamsham | Martin D'Souza

Mahie takes off from where she left last. In a daze, she moves around with a purposeful intent, unknown to Saheb. While I can say that it is not on par with her earlier portrayal, she limits herself within the confines of the new plot to steer away from being repetitive. And it is here where she scores big time. Clearly, she is moving steadily to occupy the top slot. Vidya Balan is going to have company as far as talented company is concerned at the top.

The Times Of India | Madhureeta Mukherjee

Tigmanshu Dhulia has created an intriguing world with rajas fighting for their kingship; politicians watching po*n, gangsters sleeping with the enemy, and women unapologetic about adultery in the ballroom and bedroom. The setting and story is vibrant, dramatic, dark and humourous at the same time. Once again, he scores with his characters - intelligently sketched, with dichotomous layers - dark, brooding, loving and lustful. The editing and the screenplay in the second half lose steam, and the item number (courtesy Mughda Godse) punctures the pace. The climax passively surrenders without the satiating feel of bittersweet revenge.

Dailybhaskar | Mayank Shekhar

The incredible Irrfan plays this part. It's not that he always gets the best roles or lines. It's the icy coolness with which he casually delivers them that inevitably sets his character apart. He's also on home turf here. Irrfan was first widely noticed as a UP college politician/goon in Tigmanshu Dhulia's Haasil (2003). One of his best roles was in and as Paan Singh Tomar (2012), which is also Dhulia's last film. The filmmaker had a better story to tell there. No leap of faith or fiction can match an honest, inspiring real-life journey such as that.

Bollywood Life | Reza Noorani

Inspired writing, cracking dialogues, strong and well defined characters, and an ability to show the viewers what the insides look like in a scenario where kings, gangsters and ministers all try to outdo each other for power, the movie is clever and ambitious and keeps you glued. It seeks blood, yet it's funny too. The humour is dark, sensible and in good taste. Even the smallest of characters make a great impact right from the illiterate, masochistic politicos from the hinterlands, to the faithful Luca Brasi like bodyguard who always lingers on the periphery, protecting his master.

Koimoi | Mukul Kr. Sharma

 If you have watched the 2011 movie Saheb Biwi Aur Gangster there is absolutely no reason you want to miss the sequel. If you haven't, note this "Saheb Biwi Aur Gangster Returns brings to you the raw truth of a hunger for power, love and lust; watch with gaping eyes as pride, politics and love takes one to a different zenith." Tigmanshu Dhulia has done it in the past and doesn't disappoint. Though it's practically a war brewing inside this Bollywood Flick, Tigmanshu ensures that the movie remains elegant and classy in its own way. His characters, style of narration, and the pace of the story will keep your eyes glued on the screens the whole time.

Indian Express | ShubraGupta

How politics and lost glory and intrigue and the greed for power mesh together, tempting and corrupting everything they touch, is the theme that runs though the film, just like in the earlier one, which was fashioned as a tribute to the classic, 'Sahib Bibi aur Ghulam'. Saheb is more concerned about holding on to his seat than tend to his needy wife, nor be mindful of the younger woman's feelings. Both Gill and Ali Khan and their surroundings are sketched with vivid, bold strokes, and Gill is more in control in this than she was in the earlier ( she does a good job with staggering just slightly, the mark of a practising alcoholic ), but the latter comes alive only occasionally.

Indiaglitz | Vishal Verma

Tigmanshu is excellent in making us feel the Hindi heartland for those 2+ hours on screen no matter in which ever part of the world we come from and from where we are watching this film. highly commendable..

Tigmanshu's grasp over this particular medium of power, politics, small town is tremendous.. the writings over here is brilliant especially the dialogues which adds to the glory of the characters especially Mahi Gill and Jimmy Shergill.

Yahoo | Rummana Ahmed

It's an intricate plot but Dhulia never loses the thread, the structures are cohesive and it's a pleasure to watch each layer unfold. The director has selected a brilliant cast ensemble and it is impossible to sympathise with their brazen manipulation and scheming. Every character in this intriguing tale is grey; they have their own selfish motives, their own insecurities and their own internal conflicts to resolve. Such a complicated story is handled with minimal melodrama, it's the subtlety of this story that is hugely commendable.

DNA India | DNA India

The films biggest asset is not the ensemble but the writing. The screenplay and dialogues are par excellence, giving the film a remarkable flavor, seductively drawing us into the lives of these characters. There is enough fodder to draw applause and whistles with lines like 'hamare toh gaaliyon pe bhi taaliyan padti hai', or the explanation as to why men uses bad words, 'kyunke woh rootey kam hai!'. Dhulia doesn't waste much time in setting the ball rolling.

RECOMMENDED
 
 
India Today | Vinayak Chakravorty

Like the first film too, this sequel thrives on being a cerebral tease. Tigmanshu's cinematic style has always banked on subtlety. The twists, no matter how audacious, invariably creep into the plot silently, often with a hint of black comedy. There is a sense of irony that defines Tigmanshu's vision, evident in his past works. That bit wholly benefits the suspense quotient in his new film.

70

RECOMMENDED
 
 
Bollyspice | Shalu Dhyani

Dhulia creates an authentic world of intrigue and hardly puts a foot wrong. A good story is well complimented with a strong screenplay. The cherry on the cake is the excellent dialogues, capturing the irony and humour of situations perfectly. What is especially applause-worthy is that the dialogues do not stoop to cuss words or vulgar language to make an impact.  A special mention must be made for the costume designers who have attired all the characters just right. On the downside, a couple of scenes in the second half needed to be better explained. The music is bad and songs act as irritating speed breakers - especially the Mugdha Godse item number which is tasteless and totally unnecessary. However, these are small complaints when compared to the positives.

Saheb Biwi Aur Gangster Returns Day 1 (Friday) Box Office Collections

March 9th, 2013 by Mukul Kr. Sharma

The hunger for Power, Love and Lust; Saheb Biwi Aur Gangster Returns is sure a commercial flick.  It is highly likely that the sequel to the 2011 movie Saheb Biwi Aur Gangster will have a way better box office fate than that of the latter. The movie made about 3.50 Crores on its 1st Day at the domestic box office. Though the opening shows occupancy were not pretty impressive across the country, the movie picked up at quite a few places towards the late evening shows.

Saheb Biwi Aur Gangster Returns Movie Still

The fact that there is no major competitor for Saheb Biwi Aur Gangster Returns this week is sure to add to the box office collection of the Bollywood flick. Based on  the struggle for power in UP, it was evident that the best business for the movie will come from pockets in Delhi/UP and East Punjab. The movie also did some decent numbers in CI and Rajasthan. Single Screens are sure to add value to the film's box office fate.

Saheb Biwi Aur Gangster Returns is expected to see a spike in numbers on Saturday & Sunday and a 1st weekend collection of about 12 Crores seems likely.

Saheb Biwi Aur Gangster Returns First Day Business

 

Saturday 8th March 2013 11.30 IST

Boxofficeindia.Com Trade Network

 

Saheb Biwi Aur Gangster Returns managed decent business on its first day collecting around 3.25 crore nett on day one as per early estimates. The film picked up at certain places and also with older releases being fatigued out and no major competition at the box office this week also helped the film a lot.

 

The first day of the business was as much as the combined business of last week's two releases I Me Aur Main and The Attacks Of 26/11.

 

The film did its best business in Delhi/UP, East Punjab, CI and Rajasthan with both multiplexes and single screens returning decent figures. Business in other areas was comparatively lower. If the film shows just normal growth over the weekend it will come out with a decent 11.50 crore nett weekend.

 

Basically the film will cross the business of Saheb Biwi Aur Gangster (2011) in just two and a half days. The other release Saare Jahaan Se Mehnga was very poor with fisrt day collections likely to be 10 lakhs on a best case scenario.

Saheb Biwi Aur Gangster Returns First Day Collection

Saheb Biwi Aur Gangster Returns has collected decently in the first day at the box office. Although SBAGR started slowly in the Morning shows on Friday, but showed good jump from evening show onwards. Overall it collected around 3.5 crore nett on for the opening day.

SBAGR registered an occupancy of around 30-35% for the opening day. Occupancy is decent considering Morning shows registered an occupancy of 20% only. It is also decent considering no major star value in the film, plus it was a working day. If evening and night shows trend to be considered then expect jump in collections on Saturday and Sunday.
With such a decent start at the box office SBAGR should reach safety by the end of first weekend itself. Prospect are there that makers, distributors will make profit from the film. This is extremely good news for all associated with Saheb Biwi Aur Gangster Returns.
