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.

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 »

Lugubriously ! The 5th one fails!
1 July 2018 | by anchitmttl13See all my reviews

Hirani saab made this movie to show us that he is also a man afterall . Now with this movie released , we can easily compare among his very works , for instance on a scale of sanju to 3 idiots , we can easily rate any movie. This movie doesnt hold up hirani level , though still better than bunch of bollywood crap . There was no hirani level humor whatsoever , apparently a few punches thatsol , Even if we leave this humor part the message which it gave would affect negetively on immature minds. Actings (vicky+ranbir)and direction as usual were flawless, (but thats not a factor when we review a hirani movie , is it? ) IN short dont watch it with your " yeeeaaa rajkumar hirani ki movie " mode on , rather watch it if you are a baba fan or have absolutley nothing to do on weekend (sleeping for 2 hrs would do more justice)..
