Screenplay: Tigmanshu Dhulia, Sanjay Chauhan
Tigmanshu Dhulia and Rahul Mitra’s SAHEB BIWI AUR GANGSTER 3 is a forgot able film, unlike its previous two film Saheb Biwi Aur Gangster and Saheb Biwi Aur Gangster 2 this film is a disappointment. Ex royals Ex-royals are trying all kinds of tricks and tacts to salvage their erstwhile legacy. Aditya Pratap Singh (Jimmy Shergill) of Devgarh, freshly out of jail, aches for attention and is eager to get his grip back on things. But his biggest competition turns out to be his own wife Madhavi, played by Mahie Gill. Gill effortlessly plays the sanskaari biwi to saheb, and the sultry seductress keeps us hooked on screen. Sanjay Dutt, the gangster who owns a pub in London called ‘House of Lords’. Of royal lineage himself, he is trapped in a loveless marriage and self imposed exile and is seen sky ping with his lady love (Chitrangada Singh). He comes back to the country and asks for his share in the property that daddy Kabir Bedi and Brother Deepak Tijori are unwilling to part with. The twists and turns that Saheb, Biwi Aur Gangster 3 springs upon the audience have an arbitrary, labored ring to them. Saheb, Biwi Aur Gangster 3 struggles for the most part to hit the ground and run. Its sparks, too far and few between to form a recognizable pattern
Technically the film is good; Cinematography by Amalendu Chaudhary is good, Editing by Praveen Angre could have been better. The biggest problem of the film is his writing by Tigmanshu Dhulia and Sanjay Chauhan. The film misses the punch that the previous two films had in its script. Music of the film is okay, none stands out.
Performance wise the actors have done a good job but they are not able to raise the script due to weak writing. Sanjay Dutt is at his usual best, is there anyone who can play the role of Saheb better than Jimmy Shergill, Mahie Gill is once again portrays the Biwi very well. Chitrangada Singh is also good but there is not much for her to do in the film. The roles of the women were a bit under written.
Director Tigmanshu Dhulia idea of frittering the film with a Russian roulette style wasn’t such a good idea, he tries his best but is not able to create the magic that the films predecessors had made.
At the box-office,
The film has opened to lukewarm response and it will find going tough.
