Son of Sardar Son of Sardar Review:


Remake of the south blockbuster Maryada Ramanna, Son of Sardar mainly deals with the character Jassi (Ajay Devgn), an NRI, who stays in London. He leaves to Punjab after receiving information from his hometown that the government is planning to buy his hereditary land. Ajay meets Sonakshi Sinha in train and gradually the both fall in love with each other. Twist is that families of the duo have a long-standing rivalry between them. But, they are unaware of that. A long time back, Ajay's father kills one of the Sinha's uncles in a tense situation and that has created unending rivalry between both the families. Without knowing the fact, the hero enters their Bungalow as a guest. Sanjay Dutt, Sonakshi Sinha's uncle, along with his nephews (Mukul Dev and Vindu Dara Singh) plans to take revenge against him for killing his brother. How Jassi (Ajay Devgn) escaped from their evil tactics, forms the crux of the story.


Ajay Devgn succeeded as both actor and producer with Son of Sardar. He is excellent in the movie; he particularly excelled in comedy scenes. Ajay has produced the film daringly at lavish cost and his passion is evident in each and every scene. Talented actress Sonakshi Sinha once again enthralls audience and her fans in her Desi look in the flick and played her part woth ease. Versatile actor Sanjay Dutt is stunning as baddie Billu and he is surely a major plus. He has uttered one-liner dialogues with ease and perfection and they are very entertaining. The scenes which fall between Dutt and Juhi Chawla are funny and hilarious. Mukul Dev and Vindu Dara are outstanding. Tanuja is good.


Director Ashwani Dhir has made sure that the remake version has enough of Bollywood type of mass masala elements to suit Hindi audience and he succeeded in making a filled potboiler film. Even though SOS is away from the logic, it would be a feast for entertainment seekers. Music is good and BGM is superb. Screenplay is crispy and so is the editing. Dialogues have been written well. Salman Khan’s cameo presence is additional power of the movie. He enthralled his hardcore fans in a foot-tapping special numbers “Po Po”.

The movie has more high points than drawbacks. The major minus to say is the lengthy climax, as it has been dragged unnecessarily. The love track between the lead pair could have been a lot better.

Final Verdict:

Son of Sardar is a complete masala entertainer for movie goers this festival. The movie has everything to go well with all section of audience.

Points: 3.5/5
