Rajkumar Hirani took to twitter and shared the first song ‘Main Badhiya Tu Bhi Badhiya’ from his upcoming much awaited ‘Sanju’ which stars Ranbir Kapoor as Sanjay Dutt. Song is set in the younger years of his life though music is bit confused about the timeline. According to the film’s time line, the event of this song has been occurring in the 80’s though thematically music is of the 60’s. Clearly the makers involved electronic beats to it and make it relevant but lyrics are too tacky for any young person to play it with confidence in a crowd.
Ranbir Kapoor is a brilliant actor and can pull it off perhaps any role but he seemed apprehensive while performing to it because this is very outrageous. Song starts with the dialogue as Sanjay says that his father thinks he can’t lip-sync songs which is the first requirement of a Hindi film hero. Sunil Dutt has had some great songs in his career which is why the dialogue makes a lot of sense. Sanjay seems to be in some kind of a retro club as he starts lip-syncing the song which ha rather direct meaning.
Sonam Kapoor is playing one of his girlfriends from 308 of them but in the trailer she also asks him about the wedding necklace. Dutt’s first wife was an actress called Richa Sharma with whom he got hitched in 1987 as she died of brain tumor in 1996. She is the only character that suits the timeline for Sonam’s role but Hirani refrained from taking any names. It is always controversial to make a biopic because only one person has sold the rights of their life but people who were a part of that journey get defensive in the light of getting misrepresented. Sanjay has had a color life and it will release on 29 June.
