New Delhi: Tigmanshu Dhulia has become a man to watch out for after 'Paan Singh Tomar' and 'Gangs of Wasseypur'. While the first one brought out the sensible side of the Dhulia, the second film presented him in a gritty role. However, the winds of change had started to blow after 'Saheb Biwi Aur Gangster' only.
Though 'Haasil', 'Charas' and 'Shagird' had given a hint of his capabilities but his quest of commercial success ended with 'Saheb Biwi Aur Gangster'. The director is back with the second edition of the rustic tale of Aditya Pratap Singh (Jimmy Shergill) and Madhavi Singh (Mahie Gill), however there is a new addition in the franchise. Irrfan is joining the star-cast of the first installment in 'Saheb Biwi Aur Gangster Returns'. Randeep Hooda played the gangster in the first episode.
The audience will go with a pre-conceived notion about the film, so Tigmanshu needs to come up with a strong content to impress them. He would be hoping for a good word of mouth publicity.
Rohit Vats of IBNLive is inside the theatre to live tweet the experience of 'Saheb Biwi Aur Gangster Returns'.

10:10 AM: Irrfan and Soha Ali Khan are the new additions to the team. #SBAGR
10:15 AM: Going by the reputation of the franchise, #SBAGR is expected to be another gritty thriller. What do you think?
10:20 AM: The deadly team of Irrfan and Tigmanshu is back. The opening sequence is a proof. #SBAGR
10:25 AM: Sometimes Jimmy Shergill seems to be an underrated actor. He has continuously given good performances. #SBAGR
10:30 AM: Detailing is Tigmanshu's strength. #SBAGR transports the audience to a whole new world in the beginning.
10:35 AM: The caste based politics of the Hindi heartland has been shown in an interesting way. It's engaging. #SBAGR
10:38 AM: The fading charm of kingdoms are leading to some new problems in the society. Mahie Gill has taken her character to a new level. #SBAGR
10:40 AM: #SBAGR is better researched than the first part. Raj Babbar's experience is helping him in bringing authenticity to the story.
10:42 AM: Mahie Gill has come a long way in films. She has turned into a fantastic actress. #SBAGR
10:44 AM: Soha Ali Khan is refined as well. Pravesh Rana also arrives at the scene. #SBAGR
10:45 AM: Black humour at its best. The pressure tactics of politics are at display. #SBAGR
10:50 AM: The character of Prabhu Tiwari is probably the director's take on contemporary North Indian politics. #SBAGR
10:55 AM: #SBAGR shows Tigmanshu's range. 180 degree turn from Paan Singh Tomar.
11:00 AM: #SBAGR is a film with strong male gaze on women's day. However it has one very strong female character.
11:05 AM: The game is evenly poised between the two parties. Grit and determination will play important roles from here on. #SBAGR
11:10 AM: Mahie Gill needs to be careful with her acting otherwise her vulnerability will appear as split personality disorder. #SBAGR
11:15 AM: Thrillers always face the difficulty of looking over stylish. It may evoke whistles but it also makes the film less believable. #SBAGR
11:20 AM: Irrfan has always been given nuanced roles by Dhulia and he never disappoints the director. #SBAGR
11:25 AM: The choice of background score can hamper the flow of the story at times. #SBAGR
11:30 AM: #SBAGR doesn't use low key lighting to convey the message. The tempo is rising now.
11:35 AM: Referances to books and songs have been used frequently in #SBAGR. Jimmy Shergill brings out different colours of his character.
11:40 AM: Even the most dreaded men can be changed with love. #SBAGR trying to prove it.
11:45 AM: One thing that bothers about #SBAGR is that it presents politicians and common people as idiots at times.
11:50 AM: It's Mugdha Godse's turn to be an item girl now. She croons Dil ke minister. #SBAGR
11:55 AM: Khush mat hoiye aage se hum aur darayenge. Dialogue of the day by Jimmy Shergill. #SBAGR
12:01 PM: Plans, counter plans and two hot headed people. The thrill needs to survive till the end. #SBAGR
12:05 PM: Is revenge really the purest emotion. Even people on death bed are not ready to give up. #SBAGR
12:10 PM: Deepraj Rana deserves more such roles. Metaphors are making #SBAGR an intriguing film.
12:15 PM: Love leads to destruction. Sometimes it doesn't get the winner the pleasure of triumph. #SBAGR
12:20 PM: #SBAGR has an open ending. The third part is in waiting.
12:25 PM: The story of #SBAGR proceeds on an expected line with clear cut characterisation. Acting is good.
12:30 PM: Jimmy, Irrfan and Mahie are superb in the film. Soha also utilises her chance. #SBAGR
12:35 PM: The climax finds it difficult to match up to the build up of the story but it is satisfactory. #SBAGR
12:40 PM: Dialogue-baazi is likely to get #SBAGR a positive word of mouth publicity. This is a sequel in the real sense.
12:45 PM: #SBAGR is a pure masala entertainer with a good screenplay. A complete fun film. Recommended.
