Saheb Biwi Aur Gangster 3 Review: Everytime Sequels Fail To Entertain The Audience

Despite new characters, the third sequel offers nothing new. Go for it only if you fancy scheming relatives and feudal lords overriding each other.

Saheb Biwi Aur Gangster 3

Director - Tigmanshu Dhulia

Rating - 1.5/5 (✮✯✰✰✰)

Sequels, reprises, and remakes fail to surprise or entertain the audience every time. One might have harbored high expectations from Tigmanshu Dhulia’s Saheb Biwi Aur Gangster 3, considering how Sanjay Dutt has been roped in to play a larger than life character. But, all of it crumbles, sadly, for the franchise making you wonder if it indeed should end.

Same old Lead Pair

Jimmy Sheirgill and Mahi Gill offer nothing new in terms of the characters they play. Both of them keep taunting each other and playing each other to the point that it almost gets exhausting. Aditya is seen trying to regain his political superiority in a dwindling feudal system while Mahi is seen doing the same she has been doing in the prequels, albeit with a little more alcohol. Her character begins to lose relevance as the film progresses and one wonders why the absurdity of her presence was required in the first place.

Sanjay as Crime Lord

Enter Sanjay Dutt as the revenge-hungry crime lord who had been in hiding for long but has come in to reclaim his place. He is feared by one and all and seems to be a challenge for Aditya. It’s a tired tiger fighting with a roaring lion. Unfortunately, none of that power translates on to the screen. Despite heavy dialogues and a good screen presence, the characters seem to have lost their meatiness; it is more like a reprised version of the same thing with everyone plotting something or the other against each other. Nothing manages to keep you hooked and you end up losing all interest.

Sanjay Dutt seems to be rusty and out of practice in a role which provides him scope initially but fails to back it up with an engaging script. Conniving relatives hound each other and gunshots bomb out everywhere, but nothing materializes. The audience basically knows what’s going to happen and hence, no more sequels are really needed.

An easy miss, Saheb, Biwi Aur Gangster 3 could have been so much more. But, has failed miserably at it. We hope there aren’t any more sequels since there is nothing really there to explore.
