Son Of Sardaar - Preview

wogma rating: Watch if you have nothing better to do (?)
quick review:

Had the apple seen Son of Sardaar first, it would never have fallen on Newton’s head. Talking about the film is as predictably pointless as the film itself. The exaggerated action sequences and silly comedy may entertain some of the audience, but as a film-crazy nation, we surely deserve far better.

Better known as a dialogue writer than a director, Ashwani Dhir directs his third film, Son of Sardaar - this Diwali's quota of comedy. It looks more slapsticky and the typical over-the top that goes with it. Ajay Devgn seems to be playing a macho character but goes wimpy when confronted by Sanjay Dutt.

With Sonakshi Sinha as lead lady, we can forget all about entertainment in the form of dance because the woman has a knack of juicing the grace out of dance. Just take a look at this!

Interestingly, the only thing that comes through from the trailers about the story is that Ajay Devgn's character has offended Sanjay Dutt's character somehow and the latter is just bidding time before he can lay his hands on the former. And in the process everyone overacts. Nothing in whatever we've been exposed to thus far seems to indicate that we are in for any coherent plot. It is after all, earmarked to be that kind of non-sensical extravaganza.

However, not all seems to be lost as you see some attempt at acting in this song called 'Bichhdan'. Also, there is a promise of relief in the form of Juhi Chawla, but she too can give into excess like some of her adverts show.

Yet, there is only so much hope you can have from a film starring Ajay Devgn and Sanjay Dutt that has to rely on Salman Khan to sell the film. Is this what we have come down to? Really?

Anyway, this one is unapologetically going to thrown in a lot of Punjabi cliches, starting right from the title, promos and down to each song!
