Ajay Devgn makes an entry standing on two horses. He does a song and dance routine and one fight sequence but no taaliyan yet. Salman Khan makes an entry for one scene. Taaliyon ki bauchaar. Ajay Devgn doesn't work for me when he carries a film on his shoulder. Add a lethargic looking Sanjay Dutt and it's a recipe for disaster.
Son of Sardar takes the concept of Atithi Devo Bhava and stretches it for 2 \xbd hrs. Sanjay Dutt and Ajay Devgn have a family feud going on for generations. Ajay Devgn returns to Punjab and unknowingly lands up at Sanjay Dutt's house but Dutt can't kill him. If Manoj Bajpayee in Gow said kehke loonga Dutt's line should have been ghar ke bahar loonga. From here on the film is like a bad version of Tom and Jerry in which Tom Dutt and his gang try to get Jerry Devgn out of the house and Jerry devgn trying his best to stay in this hole.
Sanjay Dutt has been given lines which you would normally find behind trucks. In fact in one scene Devgn asks him if he was a truck driver before. Let me confess here that director Ashwani Dhir's One two three is one of my guilty pleasures so I have nothing against such mad cap films but this one was idiotic and boring all the way. He takes the story of his own film Atithi tum kab jaoge and rehashes it by adding the revenge angle. This film should have been titled â€œatithi tum kab bahar aaogeâ€? Sonakshi Sinha is in repeat mode. Ajay Devgn has mastered the art of making a fool himself on screen and here also he excels in it. The action sequences might thrill the children to a certain extent.
Word of mouth - Son of Sardar = Son of Sardard. The Sion A1 samosa I had during the interval was the best thing that happened through the film.
Rating - * \xbd (Bad)
