Sanju Movie trailer

Recommended Posts

Another glorification attempt, let me forecast: he will be excused of all his sins and everything will boil down to external conspiracy to tarnish the name of this saint. * Bollywood, you scratch my back I'll scratch yours and hum sab milke Indian public ko aur chewtiya banayenge. Ramadhir Singh of GOW was right all along, he judged the mindset of Indians correctly.

So you've seen the movie then? 

 

And the irony is, you quote a movie character to make your 'point'!

I am not even going that far because obviously it is going to be that based on how Indian biopics are made.

 

I am just appreciating Ranbir Kapoor pulling off all of Sanjay Dutt’s body Language and looks over the years...will he sustain it over a full movie dont know but the little seen from the teaser was pretty impressive

GOW is a rare classic in Bollywood, it is like a speck of gold in a mountain of crap.

 

I haven't seen this movie but gone through enough Bollywood biopics to make a prediction....  besides Hirani is BFF of Sanjay Dutt (also Vidhu Vinod Chopra is a close friend), cannot imagine a friend bringing home some uncomfortable truths. If you are interested I can give you evidence of how big a criminal Sanjay Dutt is and his role in the 1993 blasts...it wasn't just an AK 56, Sanjay stored in his residence many weapons given by Abu Salem, one of those involved in the conspiracy. So pardon me if I hate that crook, I find it difficult to sympathize with such people. And you can mark this post, this movie will only whitewash Dutt's past..Dutt isn't a chewtiya to bare it all and Priya Dutt has ambitions in politics.

I lived in Bombay in 1993.  And I know that Sanjay Dutt was used as a storage mule by the "bhais".   The only thing I'll give him was that he probably didn't know that it was going to be used for terrorism, he probably let the "bhai" do his thing for "normal" goonda business.

I think she was denied bail and had to serve her sentence. She should have completed it by now. Or is almost about to.

 

Funnily enough, she was convicted under the TADA and Sanju baba was convicted under the Arms Act. For nearly the same crime.

Initially Sanjubaba was too charged with TADA. But his legal team claimed that these weapons were for self defense. All he had going for him were call records showing threats from Shiv Sainiks threatening him and his family harm. This 'convinced' the higher court that he needn't be tried under the TADA ( a far more stringent rule) but under the more benign Arms Act.

The other accused could furnish proof of no such threats. Also, the whole need an AK 56 and a few grenades for self defense is a very flimsy arguement for someone who already has 3 licensed guns.

So basically his lawyers were able to make a stronger case for him.  Hard for a 'regular' person to make the claim that they needed weapons for self-defense.

No evidence to show that he knew that the weapons would be used for terrorism or against civilians though.   

 

Obviously a crime to aid gangsters in hiding weapons etc, and he has been convicted and done his time as well.

He definitely knew that the weapons would be a part of a nefarious plan, and weren't just for a gangster march-past and parade. He could have informed the police. He didn't.

 

And he definitely didn't serve 'his time', given that the others with the same charges have served a lot more without as many furloughs and paroles.

People actually supporting Sanjay Dutt here....no wonder this country is destined to go to dogs. Brave police officers and commandos have laid down their lives to keep us safe and yet we glorify the vermin who want to rip our lives apart. So anyone who questions Sanju Baba is a hater and he is some sort of demigod just because he had an interesting life, hope pray next time when terrorists spray bullets or launch grenades it's your family members who are caught in the line of fire.

Well compared to the likes of Salman Khan et al, he's done hard time in Jail.  Whether it was enough or not, is a separate question.

Yup, he's picked up the Sanju baba style of walk and beefed up according to the character. He's also learned how to put a wooden expression less face in front of the camera. 

Nailed the Sanjay Dutt style to the tee.

The "Sanjay Dutt is a dumbfk" opinion is successfully planted in our heads by likes of Ram Jeth Malani who used that as a defense in Dutt's trail to make it seem like he was misguided...weren't there leaked conversations with this guy and some underworld dons much later as well?

 

They may not have been related to terrorism but the fact this guy had relations with underworld folk through the 2000's makes it even more suspicious.

 

His dad was a Kangressi politician and from what I have heard some of his mom's relatives were into some shady dealings(nothing to do with religion here...just heresay about some shady characters)

Not just some underworld dons. He was in contact with the big 3: Dawood Ibrahim, Anees Ibrahim and Chota Shakeel right from the late 80s to early 2000s. Even when D Company made the transition to terrorist organization this SOB was in direct hotline contact with the big cats. I read a few books about the Bombay underworld (mostly by Hussain Zaidi) and many articles, shall make a separate thread about Bollywood-D company link ups later when I get time. So many big names in Indian entertainment industry were neck in deep with the underworld and even in recent times....I feel cheated as an Indian citizen. Is it a coincidence that David Headley was staying and socializing with Mahesh Bhatt's son during his recce trips all over Mumbai? Dawood provided logistics for 26/11, now is he a fool to suggest to LeT/PakMil to instruct their point man to stay undercover with a Bhatt? Even today he has a huge network in Mumbai and knows the city inside out, there were possibly 100s of fellow bhais who could have kept Headley in their safe houses and given him the tour of prospective targets. Also no coincidence that even today many Bollywood celebs go pay respects to D's family members on social occasions, make biopics about them that whitewash their crimes and show them kindly. Can't these mofos make movies about those who fought the terrorists and sacrificed their lives in the process? We haven't had any shortage of daredevil police officers/encounter specialists taking down the goons.

 

Regarding your assessment about the trailer I agree Ranbir has done a good job. But as a matter of principle I will boycott the movie. Before some dimwit comes and tells bigoted intolerant me that Hollywood makes movies about Capone, my only answer will be let them make movies glorifying Osama, Khalid Sheikh Mohammad, Zawahiri etc, then we'll talk. 

Otoh, this movie might actually try to vindict the ROP bhais and potray Sanjay's involvement as an innocent mistake. Vindicting Sanjay means rop is the bad guy and Bollywood never does that. 

I wouldn't be surprised even if they potray all the conspirators as innocents and might actually show on how the bomb blasts are the right thing to do going by Bollywood's track record.

This is the age we live in, where celebrities are revered. People have become so attached to these personalities, like a religion. Coupled with a tribal mentality, where any criticism is taken as an attack on everything they believe in and must be challenged.

Sanju baba is a legend, haters are jealous they didn't get to experience a life anywhere near as exciting as Sanju baba's life, most of these losers are probably frustrated at leading mundane lives and thus taking their frustration out by dissing Sanju baba, but Sanju baba doesn't care :smokin:

Sanju baba was no terrorist, I find his life very fascinating, even he doesn't deny that he was involved in shady sh!t, a person doesn't have to be a idealistic moral person for you to like him, I can see myself doing the same sh!t sanju baba did if I was in his place, that's life, you make mistakes, you learn from it and you move on, sanju has a story worth telling, he's no osama or dawood, he's not a jihadist, millions of Indians enjoyed his munna bhai series, were all those Indians also supporting a "terrorist" by watching his movies, if any of you have paid and watched any of his movies after he was involved in that bomb blast and now you come here to preach us about what a big bad guy he is then that person is a big time hypocrite

How can he deny something when he got caught with his pants down lol? 

 

Also have you heard about a term called being an "accomplice" ...You don't have to commit murder,if you help a murderer that itself makes you a criminal..what does hiding a lot of shady guns in your backyard mean?

 

I wouldn't do that for any family member,leave alone a "friend". Now if that opinion makes me an asshole and Sanju baba a humanitarian in your eyes for doing that,I can't argue with you.

 

Now let us say if we buy the argument as per his lawyers that it was a moment of madness and he was an idiot for doing it, he had continued relations with the underworld,even in late 90's early 2000's there were leaked conversations with the underworld...where was the remorse? He is a serial offender like that other chewtiya Salman Khan and it is sad that these guys are looked as rockstars.

 

Now it is your perspective that you find his life entertaining,fair enough....Lots of guys like Hitler, Osama ,Serial killers tc etc have fascinating lives and I would sure watch their bipoic out of curiosity,nothing wrong but yes,I have a problem with glorifying these bastards.

Humanitarian? Where the hell did you get that from? I don't care about humanitarians, did you even read my post? I don't like sanjay dutt because he's some moral humanitarian person, I like him precisely because he's not. Do you actually believe dawood involved sanjay dutt in his plan to bomb the city? Lol sanju baba was probably sh!t scared of the bhai because of the bhai culture in baambai those days and due to his drug inflicted lifestyle he was involved with those guys at certain level but he certainly was not a co-conspirator  and he paid the price for being involved with these activities and served jail time. Why would he bomb a city where he works for a living? He's not a muslim, do you think he was looking for 72 virgins as well? He got plenty of virgins right here on earth :laugh: 

I particularly dislike these moral preachers who sit on a high horse and start passing judgment on other people as if they have never committed any wrong in their life, sanjay dutt is a flawed person just like everyone and his crimes are bigger than most people but they still fall way short of actual terrorism, he was used by dawood and that's all there is to it.

Dongri to Dubai was a very good read.Zaidi claimed one of the Khan's were still in touch with Shakeel and its frustrating how our corrupt ministers or bollywood stars support a.holes like Dawood Ibrahim who took lives of so many people in Mumbai yet he lives a free life in Pakistan.

Can you believe that he is not in touch with underworld I don’t.During the end of the movie one journalist kept calling him out but he didn’t see him so he screams at him k terrorist bhav kha raha hai to which his thinking is that song kuch to log kahenge logo ka kam hai kehna.Was there Rdx in his godown as well?He said that media printed that he had Rdx in his home which was false.

Hain? :confused:

How is Sanjay Dutt the equivalent of Osama here?

I don't think the movie Sanju glorifies Dawood Ibrahim or any of the members of the underworld. It basically skips that chapter of Sanjay Dutt's life.

Not Osama per se but maybe someone associated with AQ...even a low ranking member or helper. But since Sanjay is so famous I made that analogy. Anyone involved in that 1993 conspiracy is an enemy of India including corrupt politicians, policemen and customs officials.

 

I haven't watched the movie and I don't plan to watch it in the future. But if they have skipped the most contentious part of his life it is just an attempt to whitewash his past....a rather dishonest attempt by the makers. If I want to make a movie about Kasab tomorrow and choose to focus only on his life pre 26/11 I won't call it a biopic will I?

^ Don't think it is being marketed as his biopic. Obviously, it is a highly dramatized, sugar coated, lopsided version of reality with many chapters of his life untouched..

Most people who see the film know that. I do not share your opinion about Indian public being &@#%%$#%^  .I think we are quite smart to discern the truth from propagated falsehoods.

 

Also, @Gollum: Your analogy isn't apt. In my earlier posts in this thread, I have about the TADA and the Arms Act etc. Even though, IMO, Sanjay Dutt should have been prosecuted under the TADA, there is nothing to show that he was a part of the bomb blast conspiracy. In fact, there is some telephonic evidence to show that he asked his friend Yusuf Nullwala to destroy the gun after he heard of the blast.
