Storyline

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 die-hard 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.

Trivia

In an interview, Akshay Kumar says he would never make a movie on himself. He added, "I would never ever make a biopic on myself and I will never write a book on myself," "There are so many amazing stories in history, like Tapan Das (his character in 'Gold'), Arunachalam Muruganantham on whose life "Padman" was based, who have steered India in a positive direction. I would be a fool to make a biopic on myself. I would never even think of it, it will be a shallow thing to do for myself. I want to make biopic on real heroes and not reel heroes," See more »

Goofs

Sanju is shown to be in a rehabilitation center in USA, but the location shown is clearly cape town South Africa. When Sanju escapes the rehab center and goes to purchase illicit drugs at a dock yard, there is a boat in the background that has a call-sign for the South African port city. See more »

Quotes

Sanjay Dutt: The first time I took drugs, it was because my father didn't like me. The second time, it was because my mother was dying. The third time, I was an addict.

Alternate Versions

In India, the CBFC (Central Board of Film Certification) demanded one aesthetic cut for a U/A rating (which allows viewers under 12 to view the film with parental supervision); the cut demanded removed a scene in which a toilet overflows while Sanju is in prison. The cuts was required as the board felt that the scene was gratuitous and unnecessary. The film was released uncut in other countries worldwide. See more »

Mimicry not equal acting
30 June 2018 | by curiousmolarSee all my reviews

Totally one sided story which is fine. I am able to watch work of fiction. But, the story is really bad. This movie is at very low level. Even while comparing it with some of the worse movie of all time.
