    Verdict - Dated.Hence avoidable.

    Saheb, Biwi Aur Gangster 3Watch trailerRelease date : July 27, 2018

    We are informed that there were over 500 royal houses that got merged in the Indian Union on and after independence.After 1971,they were deprived off their privy purse pensions .They are on bad days but still live on false prestige.Many have dabbled into politics and let out their heritage to hotels.
    SBG3 is all about three such rajwaada's,call them R1,R2 and R3.
    R1 has two principal characters - Saheb Aditya Pratap Singh( Jimmy Sheirgill) and her Biwi Madhavi Devi( Mahie Gill).The Saheb is unable to get bail in a murder case.The Biwi has stepped into the Saheb's shoes.She's ambitious,power hungry,deceitful,nymphomaniac and non- ' pati vrata'.Her interest lies in the Saheb being behind the bars.
    The justice system however aquits him.The Saheb wants to take the front seat and desires that the Biwi takes a back seat.He impregnates her so that she remains away on medical grounds.
    The Biwi is unrelenting.She schemes for her husband being bumped off.Does she succeed?
    R2 has the Royal patriarch in Maharaja Hari Singh ( Kabir Bedi),the rajmaata ( Nafisa Ali) and their two sons Uday Pratap ( Sanjay Dutt) and Vijay ( Deepak Tijori).
    Sparks fly when Uday ,the gangster has been deported back from London.He wants his share in the ancestral property and start living with a mujra girl Suhani( Chitrangda Singh).The patriarch is not inclined for the partition.Instead he and Vijay want to bump him off along with the mujra girl.Do they succeed?
    Meanwhile ,Madhavi also has given a supari to Uday and a trusted retainer to bump off the Saheb.What's the outcome?
    R3 has one Royal Bank( Zakir Hussain),whose daughter Ranjana is entrapped as Biwi No 2 of the Saheb.The dad is seeking separation.Pending the resolution ,Biwi No1 has elimimnated her soutan from the scene.
    Who wins,who looses? Who survives ,who gets elimi ated? Go see for your self.
    The positives of SBG3-some dialogues are crisspy,the Russian Roulette scenes are well enacted,the climax is out of the view and a night club number is pacy.The ' sun set' of the ersthwhile royals is well etched.Woman empowerment and ambitions could be a thought well to be examined.
    The cons? The plot seems to be dated.Too many characters clutter the presentation.Some could be cut ( for example Deepraj Rana,the underground loyal reatainer and her tech savvy protector Deepal,played by Pamela Bhutoria).Also ,a love song between Uday and Suhani could be axed.The Drama is engrossing up to a point but the climax belies it.
    All in all SBG3 being given an A certifiacte restricts it's box office success .Without being contemporary it lacks interest.Could be avoided despite decent performances and the inrigue and the guessing game.
