Movie Info

Few lives in our times are as dramatic and enigmatic as the saga of Sanjay Dutt. Coming from a family of cinema legends, he himself became a film star, and then saw dizzying heights and darkest depths: adulation of diehard fans, unending battles with various addictions, brushes with the underworld, prison terms, loss of loved ones, and the haunting speculation that he might or might not be a terrorist. Sanju is in turns a hilarious and heartbreaking exploration of one man's battle against his own wild self and the formidable external forces trying to crush him. It depicts the journey of a man through everything that life can throw at him. Some true stories leave you thinking "did this really happen?" This is one such unbelievable story that happens to be true.

Critic Reviews for Sanju

All Critics (10) | Top Critics (2)

Mastering Sanjay's trademark stooped gait, adopting his distinct baritone, with prosthetic hooded eyes, Ranbir Kapoor's physical transformation is nothing short of astounding.

July 5, 2018 | Rating: B- | Full Review…

A glorified infomercial about the life of a Bollywood bad boy.

It's hard not to feel sympathy for the man after watching Sanju.

July 2, 2018 | Full Review…

Ultimately, the film avoids indulging too much on the movie star persona, but let's not deny our obsession with the private lives of the rich and famous. The cast in the end delivers a rare insight to their human side.

June 29, 2018 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…

A decidedly soft and authorised-looking biopic.

June 29, 2018 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

Sanju is not a particularly engaging film because it stretches too long and resorts to melodrama over substance, but Bollywood also lost the opportunity to look at one of its own with a neutral lens and tell his story honestly.
