Saheb Biwi aur Gangster 3, is a thriller – the third one in the series of Saheb Biwi aur Gangster by Tigmanshu Dhulia. The film fails to rise beyond mediocrity. It is the same old story of restlessness of ex-royal families, love, sex, treachery, power snatching, revenge, manipulations etc. The film gets very much predictable, since it has nothing new to offer than its previous two installments – ‘Saheb Biwi aur Gangster’ and ‘Saheb Biwi aur Gangster Returns’. The film has so many characters but most of them are shortchanged – be it the characters of Nafisa Ali, Soha Ali Khan, Deepraj Rana, Kabir Bedi, Deepak Tijori or the gorgeous Chitrangada Singh. Sanjay Dutt has very dispassionately acted, in fact, many of his dialogue deliveries also look very superficial. The only highlights of the film are Jimmy Shergill and Mahi Gill and their scenes together with ongoing banter, manipulations, hide and seek game of revenge etc. The plot certainly had tremendous scope, but it seems that the plot is not explored to the depth, dealt at a very shallow level. Saheb Biwi aur Gangster 3 suffers from poor screenplay and shortchanged characters.
The film begins from where the second film in its series ‘Saheb Biwi aur Ganhster returns’ ends. Saheb – Aditya (Jimmy Shergill), is imprisoned on a murder charge. Biwi – Madhavi (Mahi Gill), who is now a Member of Parliament as well, does lot of manipulations so as to ensure that Aditya does not get bail. But ultimately Aditya also through crooked manners manages to get bail. Gangster – Uday (Sanjay Dutt) also belongs to a royal family, who is notorious for his bad temperament. He had to go on exile for 20 years. On his return to India, not only conspiracy within his family begins but also the drama begins amongst Saheb, Biwi and the Gangster.
Saheb Biwi aur Gangster 3’s plot certainly had tremendous scope, but it seems that the plot is not explored to the depth, dealt at a very shallow level. It suffers from poor screenplay and shortchanged characters.
