Saheb, Biwi Aur Gangster Plot
Let’s come to the plot of the movie, which continues from where it left in Saheb Biwi Aur Gangster Returns. Saheb aka Jimmy Sheirgill is counting days in prison while his gorgeous wife is trying her level best to extend his stay there. While he’s kept away in prison, Madhavi makes the most of her time partying, mostly drowsed in alcohol. Sahib’s second wife Ranjana played by Soha Ali Khan is also lamenting the absence of her husband with a glass of expensive whiskey in her hands. However, her role comes to an end too soon. With Saheb’s return, Madhavi gets restless to throw him away from her life again. On the other hand, Sanjay Dutt aka Uday is a posh club owner in London who enjoying an exile in England away from the love of his life Suhani. One night, everything takes a U-turn for Uday when he kills an influential Englishman in a fit of anger. His return to India opens many doors for Madhavi, who gets him involved in her treacherous plans to get Saheb killed. Being an expert in Russian Roulette, a game which involves two players trying out their luck with one revolver with one bullet in its cylinder, Uday pitches Saheb to play a game with him. Madhavi pitches in and makes sure that it’s her husband who gets the bullet in the game, however, destiny had different plans for both Saheb and Biwi.
Talking about the cast of the film, Tigmanshu Dhulia made sure that the hero of the film is always Jimmy Sheirgill. Though the third part of the franchise is introduced with many new characters, including Sanjay Dutt who is still basking in the success of his official biopic Sanju, the film remains in the hands of Saheb. The best lines went to him. The screens lit up only when there was a verbal exchange between Aditya Singh and his wife Madhavi. The rest of the characters, including Deepak Tijori and Kabir Bedi, despite trying too hard didn’t rise from a point of being a clichéd Bollywood baddy. Sanjay Dutt despite the expensive tuxedo he wore in the film, looked no more a royal than a Mumbai Mafia. He still seemed to be reprising his look from Musafir, with an evil grin plastered on his face. The actor, to say the least, was unexploited in the film. Chitrangada Singh remained the showgirl of the film, coming in only a few scenes, playing romantic tracks for her lover over the video calls. She reunites with her love in the second part of the film only to get killed by his brother. That’s all the dusky beauty had to in Tigmanshu Dhulia’s film.
The twists and turns in the film, despite how mysteriously they were unfolded, were however predictable. One could easily make out what’s going to happen next. It was intended to be an edge-of-the-seat thriller but it landed into being a drab instead. The newly-introduced characters, plot twists weren’t sufficient enough to do justice to the premise of the film. The narrative remains unclear and unresolved, which were never the case with the first two parts of the film.
Like it’s always said, it’s better to know when to put a full-stop to things. After the powerful first and second part, Dhulia should have never attempted a sequel to this series.
