A Diwali Bombastic Entertainer

10/10
Author: tanmay-testing from India

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

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

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

I think its a full on entertainment with action and comedy for a family.It make your money utilized.With superb acting by stars Ajay and Sanjay this film makes a good rating.Villain really suits into the character.You will love to watch him.A must watch movie for Festive days. Yeah if you love romantic movies fully then this is not the one you will love.But if you get boredom by watching a one concept movie and if you want a good mixture then this movie is perfect for you. Else watch it and review..It was pretty enjoyable from beginning to end.The scenes are well executed.The acting was top-notch.ajay devgun films has done a good job.

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

SON OF SARDAAR is a great movie

10/10
Author: Arun Kumar Abhinav from India

SON OF SARDAAR is a great movie which fulfills complete need of audience. It has an excellent entertainment story where anyone will always be happy to see comedy, action, sound and picture quality. This movie also explains Indian society traditions and cultures so this is very good for children, students, men, women, boys and girls including all workers and professionals. I had never seen this types of excellent movie after ALL THE BEST. Ajay Devgan is looking like a real Sardar and Sanjay Dutt is also looking like a real Sardar but both living style and thinking is very different. Both actors have funny dialogs, Ajay Devgan loves Sukh and Sanjay Dutt also like to Pammi. There is a child roll in movie who has plays his roll very well. Son of Sardar is a complete movie which creates another excitement to see it again as I have never feel bore in complete movie. All have played their great roll in whole movie so I would like to say thanks to Mr. Ajay Devgan.

Time-Pass!

7/10
Author: nama chakravorty from India

A remake of the Telugu Hit Maryada Ramanna, Ashwni Dhir's 'Son of Sardaar' is a decent, time-pass entertainer, that doesn't disappoint. Its funny, fast-paced & thoroughly watchable. In short, A Winning Comedy!

'Son of Sardaar' Synopsis: Returning to his parents' village, a man becomes the latest target in a long-standing family feud.

Robin Bhatt's Screenplay is entertaining, offering good laughs & absorbing moments almost throughout. Dhir's Direction is efficient, he has handled the comedic portions nicely. Cinematography, Editing & Art Design, are decent. Action-Sequences are grossly over-the-top. Music by Himesh Reshammiya is foot-tapping.

Performance-Wise: Ajay delivers a lovable performance as the naive yet heroic protagonist. He never goes overboard & shines all through. Sanjay Dutt is in form this time. He plays the anti-hero distinctively. Sonakshi Sinha is passable. Juhi Chawla is excellent. Mukul Dev is simply superb. Salman Khan appears in a cameo.

On the whole, 'Son of Sardaar' delivers entertainment.
