There are no misses in this film. Only those who are not Sanjay Dutt’s fans will not appreciate this incredible film. (Read More on KenyaBuzz)

Sanjay Dutt is a personal icon for me and I think I have watched Khal Nayak over 100 times and can remember the dialogues easily. Every human being has a positive and negative or you can call dark side. I believe as an actor Sanju portrays the darker side with a touch of innocence and that has what has caused him the troubles and shining moments in his life.

Sanju, is an excellent collection of his life so far, he has just started a new chapter in his life and is unstoppable. Rajkumar Hirani changed his career course by giving him the movie Munnabhai MBBS which he starred opposite his dad Sunil Dutt. Such moments are precious.

Ranbir Kapoor has done complete justice to the role and his sacrifice of body weight changes are nothing compared to the heavy weight of the icon’s responsibilities he was showing on the silver screen. He was adequately supported by Vicky Kaushal who played his friend Kamli and no doubt Paresh Rawal who played his father Sunil Dutt.

This has been one of Paresh Rawal’s most beautiful performances. Jim Sarbh as the villain deserves a clap, ooops slap when he was beaten up in the scene, that was one of the most satisfying scene in the film.

The film will be ground breaking for those who are afraid to have conversations of the real life of a star. Sanjay Dutt was a mega star during our parents young days and what he showed or went through was a reflection of the breaking culture in the 80s and 90s that led to drugs, womanizing and corruption.

A special mention to the three ladies, Sonam A Kapoor as Ruby, Anushka Sharma as Winnie Diaz, Dia Mirza as Manyatta and Manisha Koirala as Nargis, all suitable and stunning in their roles.

Sanju is a fantastic depiction of a real life star.

Raabta brings in a fresh pair of Sushant Singh Rajput and Kriti Sanon. This is also the directorial debut for Dinesh Vijan. This is also presents Neerja’s villain, Jim Sarbh in a stylish avatar.

The story of Raabta is about a reincarnation triangle love story between Jilaan/Shiv (Sushant Singh Rajput), Saiba/Saira (Kriti Sanon) and Kaabir/Zak (Jim Sarbh) set in Budapest, Hungary.

Shiv gets a job in Budapest and soon walks into Saira’s chocolate shop and they fall in love until she meets Zak and then starts the spiral trip to the past.

Sushant is super happy in the film and unfortunately his terrible hair do in the past life character is irritating and his stunts are poorly executed. Jim Sarbh steals the show in both instances as the possessive Kaabir and billionaire Zak. But Kriti Sanon has done a wonderful job and you can see her gradient rising to complex roles. The makeup on Rajkummar Rao is excellent, you really can not tell it is him, he plays the role of a 300 year old ruler.

Director Dinesh Vijan has laid out the story nicely; only the visual effects need to still get better when they use animals. The comedy timing and rapport between the characters Shiv and Radha (Varun Sharma) are fun too. You can see Karan Johar and Aditya Chopra have influenced Dinesh.

Raabta is mixed with astrology, love and revenge. The supporting soundtrack, wonderful locations and quite decent performances by the actors hold you till the end.
