    Verdict - Saheb aur Gangster toh theek hai, Biwi ne film ki bandh baja di.

    Saheb Biwi Aur Gangster ReturnsWatch trailerRelease date : March 08, 2013

    Sample this Irrfan tells Mahie Gill “ ishq koi karta nahi, aadmi ishq mein hota hai, aur woh dikhta hai” or this line which Jimmy Shergill tells Soha Ali Khan “ pata hai mard zyaada gaali kyun dete hain? Kyunki who rote kam hain”

    Sahib biwi aur gangster returns was enjoyable just for the dialogues and three characters, sahib, gangster and minister Prabhu Tiwari ( Rajeev Gupta). His one scene with Irrfan is an instant classic and the paisa vasool scene for me in the entire film.

    Ek tha wheelchair bound raja Aditya ( Jimmy Shergill), wheel chair bound raja sees a picture of Ranjana ( Soha Ali Khan) and falls in love with her and wants to marry her. Ranjana loves Indrajeet ( Irrfan) who has a score to settle with Aditya. Ek thi bevdi rani Madhvi ( Mahie Gill) who drinks, drinks and showcases her bad acting skills in almost every scene. Their lives get entangled into one big mess of politics, personal vendetta and love which the director himself is not able to sort out by the time it ends.

    The story is all over the place. The screenplay is structured like a chess game and even a novice at the game would be able to predict the twist and turns. What pained me most is how badly Mahie Gill plays the central character of biwi. Wish Tigmanshu would have told her “ rehne do Mahie tumse na hoga”.How I was missing Tabu in this film, in this role. Every time Mahie was on screen I was imagining how Tabu would have played out the scene. To add to that Soha Ali Khan and Pravesh Rana are another example of bad casting. Besides Irrfan and Jimmy it is the smaller roles and actors that shine instead of its central protagonist.

    Word of mouth - Saheb aur Gangster toh theek hai, Biwi ne film ki bandh baja di.

    Rating - ** * ( Above Average)

    Ticket meter - worth 200 bucks
