+++ Sardar of Masala Entertainment +++

8/10
Author: Ashish Gupta from India
19 November 2012

He waited 25 years for his return for a vengeance and when he returned its full on entertainment by Son of Sardar. Son of Sardar is like a smooth butter in a Punjabi Dal and taste extremely delicious and mouthwatering and definitely not for diet or calorie conscious Janta because this movie serves you an extremely delightful buttery menu of laugh riots, peppy songs, supreme camera-work ,Jaw dropping stunts and great performances.

If a family feud and vengeance could have been funny than this is the only destination to watch for. Son of Sardar is extremely underrated by few media houses and SRK Fan Clubs on many social media sites, IMDb, RMH which would hardly effects the collections of the movie because it has all the ingredients of a delectable dish which a true gourmet (moviegoer) will always appreciate

Son of Sardar has no proper story very frankly and is based on a plot. The plot is about two rivalries of two families, an urge of vengeance, and a tradition of respect guest within home boundaries and absolutely love. This plot is further developed by an excellent screenplay by Robin Bhatt and Ashwni Dhir with a spicy tadka of fully enjoyable lyrical dialogues by Ashwni and foot tapping Punjabi numbers. . It's a pure potboiler of Ready, Singham, Dabanng regime and finding logics could disappoint you and flowing with the flow of the movie will entertain you.

Ashwni Dhir, the Director has done a pretty good job to develop the simple plot into an enjoyable ride. The Camera-work and the camera angles experimented along with cinematographer Aseem Bajaj is one of the best ever seen in bollywood regime especially for a potboiler which is the major strength of the movie and made Son of Sardar visually appealing. Stunt Director has done an excellent work

Performances, Ajay Devgan is supremely good as a Sardar. He is perfect in comical timings as well as intense scenes. Sonakshi is an eye treat, and here please welcome our Sanjay Dutt as one of the best enjoyable Punjabi villain you could have ever seen. Juhi Chawla is refreshing, Mukel Dev, Bindu, Tanuja all played well their roles perfect thou Tanuja ji's role as Sanjay Dutt mother is not properly developed.

At last, To all XYZ fan Clubs & Critics, Kade Hans Bhi Liya KarO ;) ENJOY

Regards AVA

A Family Entertainer to Enjoy with your FnFs - without any vulgar jokes or scenes

8/10
Author: Chocolate_Boy from United Kingdom
15 November 2012

First and foremost, I would like to say I am a movie buff. I like all kinds of genres from Comedy to Drama, Horror to Romance. One think I would like to say is if you like only 'Art House' films then I would suggest you don't watch it. But if you're a movie buff I suggest you to watch it with your friends & family especially during festive season.Because in today's time its really hard to find a film which does not have any vulgar materials/scenes/jokes what you can't watch with your family in bollywood. The film starts in London where Jassi(Ajay Devgn) lives with his pathan friend Salman Khan.Jassi came to know that he has a land in India which govt wants to buy.He inherited that land from his father.but later he also came to know that his father had a fight with sandhu family.His father killed Sandhu families leading man & he killed Jassi's father.but he decided to go to India & sell his property & come back without getting noticed by them.But unfortunately he ended up having lunch with the Sandhu family in their own house.They came to know that Jassi is their enemy of whom they were waiting for years.But Sandhu family has a culture of not fighting with any guests while they are inside the house.So,they wait for Jassi to go outside of the house.Later, Jassi came to know about that.He does some funny things to stay as much as possible. There is a love story also goes with the flow.Sukhmeet (Sonakshi Sinha) meets Jassi in the train.She's the sister of Sandhu (Sanjay Dutt). Now I am gonna point out the positive & negative things:: POSITIVES : A wholesome Entertainer, A festive season Film to watch with Fnfs, Juhi Chawla (as Sanjay Dutt's 'mu boli biwi'),action sequences, Bichdann song, Salman Khan & of course Ajay 'Singham' Devgn NEGATIVES : A brainless humor which few 'artistic cinema lovers' don't like, 2 songs should be better(as Himesh was the Music Director) P.S - Don't fu**ing compare with JTHJ as both are diverse genres.

Another one in the era of 'TOO MUCH' Cinema

6/10
Author: Gowtham Shravan Kumar (talk2thegsk@gmail.com) from India
13 November 2012

Lot of promotions and Ajay Devgn's previous hits had kept my expectation high. It did not turn out to be the way I expected. But it was not bad either. The movie largely revolves around the rivalry between two families and... Well sorry. As far as the plot is concerned, that is about it. This film, pretty much like what the trend is, relies on wire stunts which are live action version of many cartoon network programs. It was, till a few years ago, limited to Telugu and Tamil films. Then I realized that it is a remake of a Telugu film (No wonder). Fun filled good songs get over withing 1st 25 minutes of the movie and you will have nothing to look forward. Is SOS complete waste of time? No. It does make one laugh but not very often. Certain dialogs are well written and well delivered. If you are a fan of PJs you can give it a try. Editing could have been better. Wait till the film comes on DVD or till it premieres on TV. Paying Rs.250 (or more) for SOS does not look justified.

Old sword with new polish (Puranee talwar par nayee dhar)

7/10
Author: dineshprakash from India
14 November 2012

Nothing new in story line but presentation is good. Movie is very good till interval. Screenplay is good. Few scenes compel to laugh a loud. Dialogues are excellent. Action is innovative and good. Major drawback of this film is it's very weak love track. Climax depends upon love story but love is not shown so promptly. "GHAJINI" is the best example of strong love story and action revolving around it. Performance wise Sanjay Dutt is awesome. Juhi Chawala is also good. Ajay Devgan is fine. Sonakshi Sinha looks plump. Expressionwise she is justified but she should reduce some weight. One song "RAJA TU MAIN RANI" is good. Afterall, you can enjoy once.

Entertaining

10/10
Author: vikasmalikchd from Chandigarh
13 November 2012

Watched Son Of Sardar : first 2 hr's non stop fun & last half an hour is also not bad. Salman Kkhan's 1st scene is unexpected.

I thought the son of sardar would be an angry men but Ajay Devgan came out with a funny character. Sonakshi played a parallel Character along with Ajay Devgan.

A man came back from abroad to sell his land but in the last he got a wife :). This is something i can't digest & here's the story unfinished. Over cunning shot's were there, like Sanjay Dutt put's a man by holding his legs in the earth, lol.

But overall movie is good.It will keep you laughing all the way with repeated Ajay Devgan's pet dialogue. Mukul Dev & Dara g played their roles properly. 1 more thing while movie running in the village they shooted in Mansa Devi's Backside Temple i.e. Patiala Mandir which sounds funny how come Mansa Devi temple is in Phagwara area.

ahahahahahhahahaha.

A Diwali Bombastic Entertainer

10/10
Author: tanmay-testing from India
12 November 2012

What more one can expect in Diwali festivities. Son of Sardaar is larger than life entertainer, with loads of comedy, drama, action, emotion, love. With power packed actors like Ajay Devgn, Sanjay Dutt, Juhi Chawla and new sensation Sonakshi Sinha, the film is a packaged firecracker in this Diwali. The songs are chartbusters and can be heard everywhere and are in tune with festivities. This film can be viewed with friends and families in these holidays and in groups and can be enjoyed by all. After a long time, such a film is made with entertainment value in it so much that it will make this Diwali happier!!

Entertaining Movie, Keeps you smiling

9/10
Author: Jaspreet Singh from New Delhi, India
14 November 2012

Me and my bro went to watch this movie, most of the people said that this is not a good movie.

Well it was a good value for movie, kept us smiling and entertained!

The last time i checked Bollywood mostly never have a storyline, be it ANYONE! who ever talks about storyline! they are right! storyline is not that great but it compensates with the fact that you enjoy the move with a smile.

but in fact i prefer this movie than "Jab Tak Hai Jaan". at-least this movie does not have a predictable SRK storyline and him having a " GUPT ROG" lol!

It is a great movie. The acting is great. The dialogues are great. The Picturization is awesome. Sanjay dutt played his role as a perfect Sardar of a village. Ajay devgan seemed to be born in punjab. This Movie provides a great entertainment. The story is , ajay have to sell His property in punjab. So he came from foreign to sell his property. Sanjay dutt's father was killed by his father. So sanjay have to take Revenge from him. The story line is greatly written. The first seen of Movie is awesome, when ajay fights for his turban.The songs of this movie are awesome. And Salman come in movie with a blast. I will suggest this is best comedy this year. It is not a bit boring. If you like comedy Movies , then you must watch this. Thanks

Son Of Sardaar- Complete Laughathon!

7/10
Author: Achyuta Ghosh from Gurgaon, India
13 November 2012

The top 10 grossing Bollywood movie list this year goes like this- Ek Tha Tiger, Rowdy Rathore, Agneepath, Housefull 2 , Barfi , BOL Bachchan, Oh My God , Cocktail , Raaz 3 and Student Of The Year. Bollywood commercial successes today are either the "leave your brains out" action comedies, the nuanced and realistic multiplex entertainers or the rare fresh and frothy romance. That the low budget multiplex entertainers are finding themselves on the list is a clear sign of the audience maturing, while crass comedies ruling the charts indicates that people primarily come to the movies for a good time, brains be damned.

With a name like that, no prizes for guessing which category Son of Sardaar falls into, but boy did i laugh all throughout- its been 6 hrs since i stepped out of the theater and my sides are still aching. you know what you are getting into, so if you leave your expectations of memorable fare outside, Son of Sardaar is a full blooded roller coaster ride. Essentially a vengeance tale given the slapstick treatment with a romantic twist, Ajay Devgan as Jassi Randhawa opens with his traditional entry- legs apart, earlier it has been bikes and cars, this time to emphasize on the rustic flavor of the movie, its horses. Jassi lands up in India to sell some property and realizes that a 25 year old blood feud between his family and the vicious Sandhus still needs a closing. the Sandhus are true believers of the phrase "atithi devo bhava"- so the only safe place for Jassi is the Sandhu family home, where guests are treated well, and Jassi must do anything to stay in there, rather than run away. A necessary complication is his falling for the beautiful Sukhmeet Sandhu- the rest of the story is as predictable as it can get.

There is the usual song and dance routines, the outlandish gravity defying fights, and punchline spewing caricatures. the first half is a laugh-a-thon. I might not have enjoyed this type of comedy in the past but 6 years in the North has surely altered my sense of the comic. As like in Bol Bachchan, everyone speaks in nonsensical couplets and metaphors. Ajay Devgan as usual is sincere throughout the comedy, the action and the romance; Sonakshi Sinha is passable as the vivacious Sukh. Sanjay Dutt tries to keep a straight face throughout the madness, and Juhi Chawla proves that 25 years in the industry has not dulled her effervescence one bit. but my pick for the best original act is Mukul Dev as Tony who as a child swore never to have soft drinks till he kills Jassi. In the movie's most hilarious sequence Tony chases an unknowing Jassi through busy streets and rooftops time and again to be thwarted. Mukul has the best lines and epitomizes what the audience wants to think sardars are like. Which is sad because Son of Sardaar actually does nothing to uplift the stereotyped dimwitted portrayal of arguably the richest Indian community ever- the Sikhs. I mean can they be like this and yet be so rich? Are they not having the last laugh?

To sum up, critics and ratings be damned, I loved Son of Sardaar. This is not a movie for all, I went in with no expectations of logic and sentiments and came out laughing madly. The over the top fights, the questionable invincibility of the characters and the tame ending did not work for me, but the endless Santa- Banta jokes did. Doom and gloom, corruption everywhere, laughs are at a premium then. Do we have another comedic entry to the 100 crore club this year? Sure thing, on top of that this movie goes well with the crackling times - 7/10
