The royal saga of personal gain, conspiracy, love and lust started by Tigmanshu Dhulia back in the year 2011, is back and how. ‘Saheb Biwi Gangster 3’ isn’t much different from its last two instalments. Keep reading to know how…

The story of Saheb (Jimmy Shergill) and Biwi (Mahie Gill) continues with an addition of Uday Pratap Singh (Sanjay Dutt) and his royal Rajwada family. Rani Madhavi aka Biwi, who has been unhappy about her marriage with Saheb, once again (almost the third time) puts a strain on her brain to kill him.

Whether she succeeds in achieving the same this time, is a big question. Though I cannot reveal the answer to this big question, I can surely tell in detail if Dhulia has aced it with third take or not.


Honestly, there is no wow or any new element in SBG 3. The movie which starts on a damdaar note featuring the man himself, Sanjay Dutt (Uday Pratap Singh), loses its hold with passing time. Well, the first part of this saga revolves around Saheb who is apparently paying for his own sins behind the bars due to his beloved Biwi aka Madhavi. While, Saheb gets through a bail for a reason, there enters Uday Pratap Singh. Uday Pratap is well settled in London, but unhappy with his married life.

However, this Rajwadi man has a girlfriend out in India, Suhani (Chitrangda Singh) waiting for him. Uday and Saheb’s life seems sorted until the moment they meet via Saheb’s Biwi.

Cut to the next part; the main game begins when Biwi plots to kill her Saheb, whereas Uday’s family plans to play the same card with him. Do Uday Pratap and Saheb both have a sad end, or do they get a new start to their lives, is for you to see in the theatres.


Sanjay Dutt is spectacular as Uday Pratap Singh. Seeing him on the screen after so long itself made me feel good. However, Deepak Tijori and Kabir Bedi, who play Dutt’s brother and father respectively do not leave a mark.

On the other hand, Jimmy Shergill and Mahie Gill leave us confused by delivering a few spectacular scenes and a few, extremely below average. Although, Chitranda saves the grace with her pretty face and equally good acting skills. Soha Ali Khan who has a special appearance in the film, is tipsy and makes us feel drowsy too.

The cherry on the top here is the cute chemistry between Chitrangda and Sanju Baba. Rest all, do not require a special mention.

Direction and Cinematography

Speaking about the man behind the crime drama, Tigmanshu Dhulia; the director misses the mark with his third version. The same tale seems too boring despite it being dark and shoddy. Amalendu Chaudhary, the lensman of Dutt’s drama, manages to captivate us with the brilliant mood of the scenes, but he too, gives it a miss in some.


‘Baba theme song’ is all about the man, Sanjay Dutt. In all the scenes the actor delivers some heroic punches or action sequences, we hear the score in background. Meanwhile, ‘Lag Ja Gale’ by Rana Mazumder, is beautiful and soothing. ‘Kesariya Jugni’ is a Rajasthani spin on the song Jugni from its previous instalments. On a whole, SBG 3’s music is A one.

What’s Good


Chemistry between Sanjay Dutt and Chitrangda Singh

Mahie Gill’s strong act

What’s Bad

A stretched storyline

Cliche script

No X factor

Final Verdict

Saheb Biwi Aur Gangster 3′ isn’t a tale of bloodshed; but love, greed and pride and everything in between. While I did find the third part of Tigmanshu Dhulia’s crime drama a tad bit boring, but if you are the one who adores getting glued to a typical tale, it is a must watch for you.
