Producer: Vidhu Vinod Chopra, Rajkumar Hirani
Writer: Rajkumar Hirani, Abhijat Joshi
Genre: Biographical Drama
Release Date: 29 June 2018

Rohit Vats | Hindustan Times: 2.5/5
The director has tried to bind the screenplay with songs but instead of adding intensity to the film, they break the flow. On the topic of intensity, Sanju seems like two different films from the perspectives of Hirani and Ranbir ... Full Review

Rachit Gupta | Times of India: 4/5
Yes, there’s a lot missing, but even then, this is still an incredible story of a man and a movie star who made massive mistakes, walked through fire, survived it and lived one heck of a life ... Full Review

Shubra Gupta | The Indian Express: 2.5/5
The Ranbir Kapoor and Paresh Rawal starrer is mostly engaging ... Full Review

Saibal Chatterjee | NDTV: 4/5
Ranbir Kapoor pulls out the stops in astonishingly effective ways, subsuming his personality into that of the protagonist ... Full Review

Sukanya Verma | Rediff: 4/5
Under Rajkumar Hirani's light touch and unwavering optimism, the darkness of Sanjay Dutt's life acquires the spirit of a sportsman, grit of a soldier, humour of a rascal and regrets of a son ... Full Review

Anna MM Vetticad | FirstPost: 2/5
Ranbir Kapoor is superb, but what a startlingly dishonest Sanjay Dutt biopic this is ... Full Review

Meena Iyer | DNAIndia: 4/5
Ranbir Kapoor's Sanjay Dutt biopic is an emotional roller coaster that unfolds like a bestseller! ... Full Review

Samrudhi Ghosh | India Today: 4/5
It is not child's play to make a biopic, particularly on someone whose life has been splashed all over the tabloids, in excruciating detail. Given the kind of biopics we have seen in commercial mainstream Bollywood so far, Sanju has definitely raised the bar ... Full Review

Rohit Bhatnagar | Deccan Chronicle: 3/5
With a runtime of 161 minutes, the film is engaging and enjoyable but the film definitely tries to clear the image of Sanjay Dutt ... Full Review

IANS | Sify: 4/5
A heart-warming tale, brilliantly portrayed. Sans any gimmicks, Hindi film tropes and unnecessary drama, Hirani lays bare the actor's life, recounting each milestone of his turbulent and tumultuous life ... Full Review

Stutee Ghosh | The Quint: 4/5
What makes ‘Sanju’ special is that apart from the humour and heart, there is Raju Hirani and his unique and endearing style of story telling that at one moment will make us chuckle and tug at your heartstrings in the next ... Full Review

Tushar P Joshi | Bollywood Life: 3.5/5
Sanju is undoubtedly Ranbir Kapoor’s career best performance and will fetch him all the awards and recognition. Don’t go looking for a fair and accurate depiction of Dutt’s life and you won’t be disappointed ... Full Review

Nandini Ramnath | Scroll: 2.5/5
The secret of Dutt’s seduction technique is another one of the elements missing from the biopic. There is instead greater frisson in the bromance between Dutt and Kamlesh, which echoes the camaraderie between Munna and Circuit from Hirani’s Munnabhai films ... Full Review

Aditya Shrikrishna | The New Indian Express: 2/5
A film that is intensely Bollywood and in love with the industry, but the approach is a strange concoction of melodrama, parody and comedy ... Full Review

Siddhant Adlakha | Observer: 2/5
The film demands sympathy for a symbol-not of hope or strife, but of privilege. It demands empathy for an empty vessel, embodying a rich, nepotistic, narcissistic status quo, without putting in the groundwork to craft character through visual expression ... Full Review

Anisha Jhaveri | indieWire: 3/5
Mastering Sanjay's trademark stooped gait, adopting his distinct baritone, with prosthetic hooded eyes, Ranbir Kapoor's physical transformation is nothing short of astounding ... Full Review

Lisa Tsering | The Hollywood Reporter: 2/5
A glorified infomercial about the life of a Bollywood bad boy ... Full Review

Charlie Smith | Georgia Straight: 3/5
It's hard not to feel sympathy for the man after watching Sanju ... Full Review

Mike McCahill | The Guardian: 2/5
A decidedly soft and authorised-looking biopic ... Full Review

Bollywood Hungama: 4.5/5
SANJU is an entertaining saga that blends emotions, humour and drama in adequate doses. It is powerful, engaging, emotional as well as compelling. The combination of Rajkumar Hirani and Ranbir Kapoor works like a dream ... Full Review

Umesh Punwani | Koimoi: 4/5
Love him, hate him, envy him, admire him, praise him, disgrace him but Bollywood will never find anyone else like Ranbir Kapoor ... Full Review

Namrata Joshi | The Hindu: 2/5
I was plain bored and alarmed at not feeling invested enough, something that hasn't ever happened for me with a Hirani movie, the misgivings notwithstanding ... Full Review

Shilpa Jamkhandikar | Reuters: 2/5
Sanju is not a particularly engaging film because it stretches too long and resorts to melodrama over substance, but Bollywood also lost the opportunity to look at one of its own with a neutral lens and tell his story honestly ... Full Review

Devesh Sharma | Filmfare: 4/5
Rajkumar Hirani has made a hugely entertaining film for the audience. And for his friend Sanjay Dutt, he has given a vehicle to finally tell his version of events and say to his detractors -- bas ho gaya yaar! ... Full Review

Rajeev Masand | Book My Show: 3.5/5
It’s a consistently engaging film that makes its way to your heart even though the head frequently resists ... Full Review

Suparna Thombare | Cinestaan: 3.5/5
Ranbir Kapoor is the soul of this cleverly written narrative ... Full Review

Ankur Bhardwaj | Business Standard: 3/5
An unconvincing biopic but another good Rajkumar Hirani film. Like this depiction or hate it, but you can't fault it for its pace or its ability to hold your attention ... Full Review

India Glitz: 2/5
Watch Sanju for Ranbir’s transformation into one of India’s most controversial actor. Sanju is a display of some fine acting with a story that mostly reveals what the world already knows on a light hearted note ... Full Review

Sarath Ramesh Kuniyl | The Week: 3.5/5
There is a typical Hirani touch throughout the film, with outlandish song sequences, and more than a dash of melodrama. But then, that's expected, isn't it? ... Full Review

Akhil Kumar | The Statesman: 4/5
The film about a Bollywood star yet again fails to get us an insight into Bollywood – maybe the film would’ve got much longer if Hirani added those aspects but it would’ve been worth it because the 168 minutes of ‘Sanju’ were gripping ... Full Review

Anita Iyer | Khaleej Times: 2/5
Why this Ranbir Kapoor starrer fails to impress in spite of best intentions ... Full Review

Ashwin Bharadwaj | Lens Men Reviews: 3.5/5
Just like the song that appears when the end credit rolls, Sanju is basically asking you to do the fact checking before believing whatever that gets written outside the judiciary ... Full Review

Mary Gayen | The National: 3.5/5
Ultimately, the film avoids indulging too much on the movie star persona, but let's not deny our obsession with the private lives of the rich and famous. The cast in the end delivers a rare insight to their human side ... Full Review

Poulomi Das | Arre: 2/5
It doesn't just heroise a flawed personality, but also ends up as the definitive and selective account for the future ... Full Review

Behind Woods: 3.25/5
Ranbir Kapoor sets a new benchmark in Rajkumar Hirani's emotionally uplifting dream ... Full Review
