YouTube Video on Everything About Sanjay Dutt That Will Be Left Out Of Sanju

I have to admit, this is partly because I thought I looked really good in my new dress.  Only it didn’t come through as well in video.  Curses!  Anyway, the content is good and whatever too.

  1. My hunch is that this film is going to be told from the POV of Sanju himself which would be interesting because addicts rarely have the most perfect memory or the most accurate account of what happened.

    I’m also really curious about what kind of debate, if any, this film inspires. He is really very well known. Honest, or even semi-honest reviewers should be able to pick out the gaps in the story. there’s always our news media which can invent multiple hour-long specials about the man BUT it would remain to be seen IF that’s ALLOWED to run.

    Also, seriously sexy dress!!! I almost missed the dog there that dress is so sexy!


    • I’m so happy with that dress! I got it mail order and I already ordered another one.

      I’ll be curious as well. They tried to stop the release of the Sanjay book, which I thought was because they didn’t want the competition with their film, but now I am wondering if it was because they didn’t want people to have a quick and easy reference for everything that is left out. It’s standard to leave things out of biopics, because you can’t possibly show everything, but this is India’s first biopic, and it’s on such a well known figure, it’s going to be hard to balance the “truth” with what makes a good movie.

      • I don’t think any of us should be under any illusion that this is film isn’t propaganda for Sanju and a career revival opportunity for Ranbir. Sanju or Salman or SRK or even Saif are still mainstream enoigh personalities to warrant sold out release weekend. That’s enough to declare it a hit. Good for Sanju, good for Ranbir, good for the makers, good for the news people, good for the audience because they have a good, not stupid film to go to.

        It might be a cynical view to take but anyone that’s still alive who has a biopic out is always going to be telling just half the story


        • Oh absolutely. That’s why “unauthorized” biography’s are such hot sellers, you know they are saying things the subject doesn’t want to be said.

          • And back then, before cable news that is, there were just the “serious” articles in serious papers and journals that hinted at his exploits and preached restrain to the masses using his example in veiled words. Every middle class housewife had that one illusive source that had heard from a friend who heard from a friend who heard from someone who reads film magazines about what he was upto. And those old interviews where he only presented his side of the story. I suppose it wouldn’t be too far off that standard


          • I’m also really surprised, after researching around for my own series, how much mis-information is floating around about him. Basic stuff like how he met his first wife is constantly reported incorrectly. Because someone somewhere reported it wrong, and then it got repeated and repeated and repeated.

            So the film can show what it wants, and if anyone goes against it, you can just point to all the inaccuracies in the “official” accounts, and say that the film is as correct as anything else.

          • This is an issue that you get with lore. The sanju story is lore now. And nobody cares if the facts are wrong. It would only matter should he choose to pursue politics full time and he gets to a top portfolio like party chief which we all know he probably won’t ever


          • He was there to film Sanjay leaving jail the final time, so that has GOT to be either the opening or closing of the film.

            I think we can also plan on a slow clap moment, a moment when someone who initially discounted our hero reluctantly comes to respect him, and a confession of love that our hero feels unworthy of but gratefully accepts. Also, for some reason, very very brightly colored costumes. That last I really don’t mind, why are all the other directors afraid to put their hero’s in colors?
