Ranbir Kapoor-starrer Sanju has become the talk of the town, especially after its release today. The film is a biopic on the life of Sanjay Dutt and is directed by Rajkumar Hirani.

Critics have praised the actors as well as the director. They have called it a 'touching' and a 'blockbuster' film. The critics also reveal that the film does not hide any mistakes made by Sanjay Dutt in his life and is a very honest biopic. 

Film trade analyst Sumit Kadel posted on Twitter, "Overall #Sanju is a gladsome story of a Father-Son relationship, Story of friendship, story of resilience & courage. You will love your father even more after watching the film & will start adoring your best friends more than ever. Sanju will be a BLOCKBUSTER. Ranbir Kapoor acting in #Sanju cant be justified in words. It is like you are watching an actor performing in 5-6 different films at the same time. One of the best performance I have seen in my life. Very few actors in the world can achieve what Ranbir Kapoor has done in Sanju."

Naved Jafri posted on Twitter: "All the best to @duttsanjay @RajkumarHirani #RanbirKapoor @deespeak @AnushkaSharma and the entire team of #Sanju ! Some of my family members saw the premiere last night and can't stop raving about it! We all love SANJU- the man with a golden heart ! God bless"

Umair Sandhu tweeted: 'First #SanjuReview ! #Sanju , however, is a complete director's film. #RajKumarHirani has managed to portray the touching life story of #SanjayDutt in a very engaging narrative. At no point does the film slow down and the viewer is constantly on the edge of his seat.'

Filmmaker Omung Kumar tweeted: "Movies have failed earlier but Ranbir Kapoor never failed... but this time the movie #sanju has lived up to everyone's expectations and Ranbir Kapoor has excelled as an actor and portrayed Sanjay Dutt's life with sincerity. Real rockstar. Take a bow," 

FilmFare rated Sanju 4 stars out five and tweeted: Movie Review: #Sanju Rating: 4 stars "Ranbir has somehow convinced himself that he's actually @duttsanjay -- and hence the physical transformations and the voice modulations look so convincing as they contain part of Dutt's soul." - @devscribbler

The film critic Taran Adarsh tweeted: ' ' #OneWordReview... #Sanju: M-A-S-T-E-R-P-I-E-C-E.M-A-S-T-E-R-P-I-E-C-E. Rating: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️½ Powerful... Engaging... Emotional... Compelling... Rajkumar Hirani proves, yet again, he's a master storyteller... This one will be a MONSTROUS HIT.'


Sanju also stars Dia Mirza, Manisha Koirala, Sonam Kapoor, Anushka Sharma, Paresh Rawal and others.
