First things first , the movie is entertaining . With loads of punjabi tadka the creators tried to leave no stone unturned to make it a wholesome entertainer. But adding too much spice is also not good because with too much spice you don't find the real taste as it should have been. Then again some people love too many flavors in a single dish...! Read on to know if SOS is worth tasting.

Son of Sardar  review


In Landon, member of Randhawa family Jassi (Ajay Devgn) gets a courier from back home stating that there is some issue with government regarding his ancestral land. His mother took him and fled the country years ago after the death of his father. There is a long standing feud going on with the rival Sandhu family.

Back home, Billu (Sanjay Dutt) the brother of the last fallen Sandhu killed by Jassi's (Ajay) father, abandons his sweetheart Pammi (Juhi Chawla) at their wedding, vowing to marry only when he will wipe out the existence of Randhawa family . Similarly Billu’s nephews Titu (Vindu Dara Singh) and Tony (Mukul Dev) swears to stay off ice-cream and cold drinks . Presuming that the anger must have cooled down in 25 years, Jassi returns to India where he falls for Sukh (Sonakshi Sinha) in a love-at-first-sight manner. With some twist here and there, Jassi enters Sandhu family home or rather mansion as a guest. And Sandhu's have strong belief in “ aatithi param deva” type of philosophy, so till the time he stays in the house no one can cause harm to him not even the mighty Billu himself.

So how does this son of Sardar manages to escape from Sandhu's wrath and how does he get his ladylove?

Analysis :

Son of Sardar  review

Like in the beginning we said it has all the ingredients a typical masala movie should have. But in-spite of this it falls flat at times. Some slap-stick ,loud jokes may give you the reason to rename SOS to “Save Our Soul” . But if you leave-your-brain-at-home and if you liked movies like Golmaal series then this might work for you. The writers tried to make every sequence as funny as they could but in that process they ended up overdoing it. There is no proper storyline and the flaws in the scripts are clearly visible when there is an unnecessary twist in the love story of the lead pair or ending of decades long Khandani dushmani in nearly fifteen – twenty second.

Performance :

Son of Sardar  review

On the acting front all the actors have done moderately well which makes you angry for the relatively bad script. Ajay as a Sardar , no Bhagat Singh but Lovable, Sanjay as billu is entertaining, Sonakshi as a punjabi kudi is convincing but the real show- stealer is Mukul Dev as Tony with his drunkard Sardar role. Juhi is as graceful as always .

Final Word: If you don't mind nonsense comedy and if over the top action thrills you then go for it. It is entertaining and annoying at the same time. So it's love it or hate it. If you've laughed liked crazy at any video that includes“ Monkey-wearing-a-tuxedo” , most probably this is your movie and it's not an uncommon thing either, as the definition of entertainment is relative..!
