Sanju has been made by people who have a soft spot for Sanjay Dutt and that tender approach shows through. They've tried their best to remain objective and not glorify him, but have succeeded only partially.

The movie however belongs to Ranbir Kapoor who has imbibed the nuances just enough to make it real and not end up as a caricature. I’ve NEVER been a Sanjay Dutt fan but Ranbir’s performance almost had me converted. Whether or not it does anything to improve Sanjay Dutt’s enfant terriblé image, it gives Ranbir a reason to smile and we should be happy about having discovered Vicky Kaushal, who plays the too-good-to-be-true friend. He’s been noticed in Masaan and Razi but Sanju will probably make every one sit up and take note.
But why was Anushka in a blue eyed, curly haired cringe-worthy avatar? The film makers spent only as much as her screen time to chart out her character. That was completely unnecessary.
There were two things that struck a personal chord with me. One, that the media has been rubbished, something that is well deserved. I was a news junkie but now I can’t tolerate the news channels trying to out shout each other. The stuff they peddle in the name of news is disgusting.
The second was the use of songs that the father uses to inspire the son. That is something I relate to, because I’ve grown up hearing these lyrics and they still don’t fail to inspire me or drag me out of my blues. There’s a lot of conflicting opinion among viewers which I leave for them to sort. But I definitely disagree that they have glorified the bad guy.
He’s been shown as an ordinary person who is stymied by his parents’ stature. For all his macho imagery, one slap from the police inspector was enough to scare him into spilling the beans. He’s made bad choices and paid for it. So there’s a lesson to be learnt there and taught to our kids.
You fall for temptation, you err and then you get into a mess which is only up to to clean. Let’s not call it a biopic – it’s just a slice of his life served to you in Hirani’s oversimplified and happy-go-lucky style. He can be forgiven for that.

"There is a story and a vision which makes us gravitate towards cinema. Even as we worked as assistants on ads, we realised that cinema was our true calling," say Gunpreet Kaur Mann and Deepali Singh Raseen.

Let me introduce to you the talented designer duo who have worked on these, and can be considered today’s upcoming costume designers for the screen. Gunpreet Kaur Mann and Deepali Singh.
Having studied at NIFT, Gunpreet Kaur Mann sent her portfolio out to several designers. Her first gig was as an assistant stylist with Manoshi and Rushi, who also happen to be a designer duo.

Years of experience as assistant costume designer followed, which eventually led her to getting a break.
A ‘thank you’ makes a lot of difference in the way any woman in your life sees herself in your eyes. It might even mean the world to her.
I have not received any appreciation in the past. Probably never will. This is the experience of ample women across the globe. The expectation to be thanked for all the sacrifices she makes to keep others happy has faded. Yet the urge to hear few words of acknowledgement always lingers.
There is never a day when she pushes off her own burdens. She knows not to give up on people she loves. Women in general, are givers by nature and hence, give without asking anything in return. They have been the care givers and lovers since centuries however receive no appreciation.
It will mean the world to your mother if you answer her calls. If your sister seems lost give her a hug and assure her about her strengths. Tomorrow, there might come a day when you would have to make your daughter feel empowered with few words of wisdom every now and then. For the children to feel wanted and loved, you must be able to spare some quality time with your wife and be present in the moment.
