Saheb Biwi Aur Gangster Returns is a 2013 Bollywood romantic thriller drama film directed by Tigmanshu Dhulia . It is the sequel to the 2011 film, Saheb Biwi Aur Gangster
And guess who’s in charge of the affairs at his highness’ palace. The Biwi (Mahie Gill) noting her husband’s state takes matters in her own hands and is now an MLA from their constituency. However, things haven’t changed much between Saheb and Biwi as Mahie continues to show considerably large indulgence in alcohol and of course the much needed “love”. And here she goes again “Yeh mard hi kyun milte humein. Shayar kyun nahi milte.”
Enter Gangster Indrajeet Singh aka Raja Bhaiyya (IrrfanKhan) to avenge his family of two generations back. a ragged prince who has lost everything but his pride, pledges to get back his family's respect which was once destroyed by Aditya's ancestors. Ranjana ( Soha Ali Khan ) is a modern ambitious girl who is madly in love with Indrajeet Singh. The story takes a new turn when Aditya falls in love with Ranjana and forces Birendra ( Raj Babbar ) her father, for their marriage. In this game of live chess between Saheb, Biwi and Gangster, the winner, thesurvivor takes it all.
Thanks to Tigmanshu having given equal footage to all the characters, each and every star has performed exceptionally well. Irrfan Khan stands out as he shows his anger, passion, jealousy and pride with utmost conviction. Jimmy pulls off his role with gusto and so does Mahie as the volatile, scheming wife and Raj Babbar. Soha Ali too stands out. Her character is more subtle and poised. Though Deepraj Rana's character is silent, he emotes very well and is able to convey a lot.-->Jimmy Shergill is perfect as the Royal Blood striving hard to get back on his feet and take charge of the situation. Well, you will not just find a Royal Blood but his performance has the perfect blend of an egoistic yet practical man.
Mahie Gill again steals away the limelight with her performance as the Biwi. The portrayal of an ignored wife looking out for love and a resolve to go to any extend for it just couldn’t have been better.
Irrfan Khan just seems flawless. Be it his one liners or his portrayal as the love struck Gangster, he completely lives up to the need of the role.
Soha Ali Khan’s role, though not as strong as that of the other actors, perhaps needed better efforts than what we saw.
What’s Gud: The Acting; Dialogues, Unexpected Twists& Turns; The Occasional Comedy
What’s Bad: Some scenes in the 2 nd half have rather excessive complexities.
Watch or Not?: If you have watched the 2011 movie Saheb Biwi Aur Gangster there is absolutely no reason you want to miss the sequel. If you haven’t, note this “ Saheb Biwi Aur Gangster Returns brings to you the raw truth of a hunger for power, love and lust; watch with gaping eyes as pride, politics and love takes one to a different zenith.”
