SON OF SARDAAR Complete But Cliche Entertainer


Overall film is a good entertainer and works for the audience who doesn't mind a weak script and senseless comedy. This can be taken as next installment of "Rowdy Rathore" or "Bodyguard".
Film: Son Of Sardaar    
Cast: Ajay Devgn (last seen in Bol Bachchan), Sonakshi Sinha (last seen in Joker) and Sanjay Dutt (last seen in Department) 



After all the controversies and fist fights, Bollywood's big Diwali clash is here. Ajay Devgn's latest offering "Son Of Sardaar" (SOS) is his latest bet on entering the big leagues of Khans.
Film is a remake of south film "Maryada Ramanaa" which is itself remake of Hollywood silent film "Our Hospitality". So if one finds story uninspiring that is quiet natural due to dated plot. Film's biggest flaw is uninspiring plot. Though 1st half races like anything and keeps you completely entertained. 
 But 2nd half is completely opposite as film drags with romance takes over from comedy action mixture of 1st half. Though film recovers in later part but climax again disappoints. Salman Khan's brand power sought by makers to rescue it with his appearance in a fight sequence followed by "Po Po" song. 
 In terms of performance, Ajay Devgn gives his best and entertains you throughout. He is no doubt the best cog in this wheel. Ajay gives some breathtaking action sequences but doesn't feel in aping what Akshay Kumar did as 'Sardaar'. His comic timing is also left lotto be desired. But this is Ajay devgn vehicle and he cariies it on his able shoulder. 
Sanjay Dutt starts from where he left in "Rascal" and "Department".  He sleepwalks and looks disinterested and so does Juhi Chawla. Sonakshi Sinha repeats herself from "Rowdy Rathore" and "Dabangg". She succeeds in irritating you in every frame. Supporting cast consisting of Mukul Dev and Vindu Dara Singh strictly average. 
Music is the film's high point and almost every song works in the film barring "Bichadan" which drags the film. "Po Po" comes in the end but superstar Salman Khan shines in it and "Rani Tu Main Raja" along with title song works big time. On the flip side, film is full of cliches and you will not be surprised with anything in the film, be it music or plot or performances.
Director Ashiwn Dheer does decent job considering his earlier disastrous outing in "One Two Three" and "Atithi Tum Kab Jaoge". Still it is Ajay who saves the film despite bad writing and not so tight direction. You almost feel bad for Ajay as he and the film both miss somebody like Rohit Shetty. 
 Overall film is a good entertainer and works for the audience who doesn't mind a weak script and senseless comedy. This can be taken as next installment of "Rowdy Rathore" or "Bodyguard".



The makers roped in Salman Khan — who seems to have become the hottest item guy in town. He has featured in one song in this film too. Sonakshi Sinha, who reportedly has been trying very hard to be stereotyped, seems to have finally succeeded. No interviews about her “not willing to expoje” have done the rounds.  

Controversies/stunts
Ajay Devgn felt late Yash Chopra’s film, which also releases this Diwali, has taken up extra screens that rightfully belonged to him. If he hadn’t made a film, whose promos look like they do, the distributors probably wouldn’t have taken up the soppy offer to showcase Shah Rukh Khan’s film as fast as they did.
If you haven’t watched the trailer, you’ve saved yourself some bile, unless you like being spoken to by Ajay Devgn’s flexing chest muscles. The sad part is, a few million who will make this film a ‘hit hai ji hit’, might actually enjoy that. Doesn’t look like a cringe-free experience at all.

Pluses:
Amazing action sequences, hit peppy songs, Ajay puts his best effort, clap worthy dialogue, racy 1st half
Minuses:
Sonakshi is becoming irritating with same kind of roles, Sanjay Dutt sleepwalks, Juhi Chawla and Vindu Dara Singh out of sort, Arjan & Mukul Dev offers nothing new, 2nd half drags and unimpressive climax
 Critic Rating:
3/5 
Business Rating:
3.5/5 
Verdict:
Watch it for complete massy entertainment
Sonakshi
