Saheb Biwi Aur Gangster Returns - Preview

wogma rating: Add to 'must watch' list (?)
quick review:

Saheb Biwi Aur Gangster Returns is a thriller worth its salt putt off by a few inconsistencies. Don't miss it, especially if you don't mind a good game of political double-crossing.

A sequel which actually is a sequel, and not just cashing in on the prospect of a franchise - that's welcome already. So, we'll be back in the aristocratic world of the prince, his wife and a new gangster will enter the scene. And the new addition is none other than Irrfan Khan! We all know what magnificence they created last time director Tigmanshu Dhulia and Irrfan Khan got together in Paan Singh Tomar.

Other than that the mystical aura of Saheb Biwi Aur Gangster, the elements of aristocracy, deceit, arrogance and jealousy seem to be at a prime in the second installment too. In addition there is a tinge of revenge that the trailer seems to hint upon.

Along with that though is the use of sex as a tool to express love. No problem with that, I just hope there is more to the love implied than sex. Also, I hope the awkwardness has reduced over the last couple years.

Other than that, I am completely looking forward to Jimmy Sheirgill and Soha Ali Khan in a role that suits them best - Royal lives; Irrfan Khan in whatever role he chooses to play; and I hope Mahie Gill gets some of her oomph from Dev D back.

And more that, there's the witty dialogue, an atmosphere trying to seduce you and Tigmanshu Dhulia's film after Paan Singh Tomar to look forward to!

Music Reviews:
dunkdaft - "Composed by Sandeep Chowta, this one would work only in line with the screenplay, and not as stand alone album like the first one did. "
Milliblog - "Welcome back, Sandeep Chowta!"
glamsham - "3/5"
