Saheb Biwi Aur Gangster - Notepad

wogma rating: The keen should rent; else TV (?)
quick review:

Saheb Biwi Aur Gangster is a decent political thriller. But, it would have worked so much better if the characters had engaged us emotionally. Yet, the dialogues and the general flow of the film makes it worth a DVD watch.

Plot Summary

Aditya Singh (Jimmy Sheirgill) is struggling for power in what used to once be his father's kingdom. He is not interested in his wife (Mahie Gill) who is suffering from some mental illness because of an event in her past. There is a new driver (Randeep Hooda) in the picture who also happens to be a gangster and has his own political motivations in the mix.

What Worked

  • The background music that goes with the morose/gory opening sequence.
  • The dilemma created in the politician's office - between the Chief Minister's call and Aditya Singh wanting to visit the bathroom.

What did not

Note: This section simply lists the things that I did not like in this movie. This is not the overall impression about this movie. Please read the full review here

  • Suman - Aditya Singh's right-hand man's daughter is damn annoying. Given the three scenes she is in, she is loud and irritating - totally out of place with the rest of the tone of the film.
