Movie Review: Sahib Biwi Aur Gangster Returns (Rating: 4/5)

Director: Tigmanshu Dhulia

Actors: Jimmy Shergill, Irrfan, Mahie Gill, Soha Ali Khan

Saheb Biwi Aur Gangster Returns posterA wheelchair-bound royal who hasn’t forgotten his heritage or how to use his gun, tired of his wife’s deceptive ways, pressurizes another royal into giving him a daughter to marry. The other royal wants this man’s honour destroyed, and sets up a man for the job who not only loves his daughter but also has a bone to pick with the temporarily disabled royal. While most of the characters are unyielding, the biwi, fuelled by the heady drinks she takes large sips of in every other scene, is the most headstrong of the lot. As expected, matters take a turn, with the sahib trying to win over this soon-to-be new biwi, and the first biwi enjoying outdoor and indoor romps with the new gangster to satisfy her lust and gain political power. But you can never be sure which way they’re going to turn.

My interest in Tigmanshu Dhulia’s work began when I watched “Sahib Biwi Aur Gangster””, grew when I as told he had made a few other interesting movies, and permanentized when I saw the director act in “Gangs Of Wasseypur”. It is now obvious that the man has tremendous control over everything he does. As a filmmaker here, Tigmanshu Dhulia never strays from the plot and succeeds in making “Sahib Biwi Aur Gangster Returns” one of those rare sequels that are funner, more engaging and certainly more watchable. The high level of watchability of this movie may have to do with, apart from Tigmanshu’s storytelling skills, the fact that the sequel has a stronger cast; this is a set of actors who can act; actors who know when and how to be funny without puncturing the otherwise serious mood of the film.

“Sahib Biwi Aur Gangster Returns” sees its director erasing all the errors that kept SBaG interesting only while it lasted; it is Tigmanshu Dhulia who has returned with a sharper, wittier and more brazen follow-up. Superb!
