But being a Nawab, how can Sahib not follow the royal tradition? Despite the financial crunch the Nawab has a mistress with whom he has a very intimate relation, which is a reason of soreness to his biwi. That it is why she becomes a hysteric patient. But ray of life comes in her life when she meets a gangster named Babloo who pretends to be a driver.

Babloo is sent by Nawab’s rival political party disguised as biwi’s driver to kill Nawab Sahib. But later gangster Babloo falls in love with her. After getting to know Babloo’s real identity, Biwi creates a plan to murder the mistress with her gangster lover to retain the Nawab’s attention back and promises to continue the relationship with gangster. And the cat-mouse game begins.

Thumbs Up: This movie has everything required to be a blockbuster as well as beat the critics- a powerful story line, hard hitting dialogues and the perfect portrayal of character by the actors. All these factors make ‘Sahib Biwi Aur Gangster’ a perfect drama which maintains your excitement till the end. It is a well-woven tale of lust, love and betrayal.

Movie’s hard hitting dialogues are the soul of the film. Jimmy Shergill’s performance is unbeatable whereas Mahi Gill’s bold and lustrous looks compliment Jimmy and Randeep’s character. She portrays her clever woman character with ease. For Randeep, this movie is like life saving jacket for him.

Thumbs Down: The second half of the movie is a little dragging. The editing part of the movie is little weak.

Drama or cine lovers must watch this movie because it’s highly recommended. Director Tigmanshu Dhulia has given a saucy homage to Guru Dutt’s ‘Sahib Biwi Aur Ghulam’ through his flick.
