Son of Sardaar hits the Bullseye!
Son of Sardaar is a big-bang Diwali Cracker! Absolute must watch!
Son of Sardaar dared to clash against a Titan. And well, the confidence is absolutely justified. A riot from the word go, SOS is a sizzling entertainer. Interesting premise, foot-tapping music, first rate comic timing from the ensemble cast of Vindoo & Mukul Dev, chirpy as ever Juhi Chawla, rock solid Sanju baba, sufficiently glam Sonakshi and fantastically goofy Ajay Devgn. SOS hits the Bullseye with its madcap entertainment quotient, without being stupidly brain dumb like any of Rohit Shetty stuff (Golmaal series, All the Best, Bol Bachchan).
Likely to appeal equally strongly to both the masses and the classes, SOS packs a powerful punch to be a long runner at the Box Office. It keeps you enthralled and in splits right throughout. Perhaps, the only speed-breaker is that needless romantic duet between the lead pair (a forgettable number now playing across all channels). That apart, SOS is the perfect Diwali cracker for all the movie buffs. At times Tom & Jerrish, at times Jab we Met-ish, and most often a playing to the gallery paisa-vasool entertainer. Loaded with ROFL dialogues, that often sound like that truck ke peeche waali profound shayari. Immensely funny and immediately seeti-inducing.
It’s needless to say that SOS will rush it way towards the 100-crore club in perhaps the next 10-14 days. However, as indicated earlier, this one is a long-runner (and not just a Diwali cracker) and will ensure repeat viewings up north. Won’t be much surprised if it ends up raking in around 150 crore in its entire lifetime run. Go ahead and have a blast of Diwali by indulging in the goofy entertainment of Son of Sardaar. Make your Diwali more dhamakedaar, do watch Son of Sardaar! Highly recommended for people of all ages, shape, size and intellect.
