Sahi Dhandhe Galat Bande - Movie Review

Sahi Dhandhe Galat Bande(SDGB), a catchy title indeed. SDGB marks the debut of Pravin Dabas as a director, who is known for his works in Khosla Ka Ghosla, My Name Is Khan, Monsoon Wedding, etc.

PLOT : A four membered gang consiting of Rajbir (Parvin Dabas), Sexy (Vansh Bharadwaj), Ambani (Ashish Nayyar) and Doctor (Kuldip Ruhil) work for a Fauji(Sharat Saxena), a mafia don who has a strange fetish of asking his thugs to shoot a video while thrashing down their enemies.
The film starts with the release of Rajbir from prison and centers around the story of those farmers whose land is being taken away in exchange for very cheap prices by the government. The government claims this to be an industrial project the development of everyone including the villagers.
Rajbir and his friends feel pity at the plight of their people and plan to fight for them. But things aren't easy for them as their own master Fauji, is on their opposition for he has joined hands with the government and busy planning to enter politics through the coming elections. To their worst, the villagers are reluctant to take their help since they are criminals and the villagers want their protest to be completely non-violent.
This four guys then start on their own way and use their own methods. The resulting violence, kidnapping and the media attention helps the villagers in getting back their land.

GENRE : Action, Comedy, Political

DIRECTION : First time director Pravin Dabas is impressive in the way he shows his film. The locations, the actors and music strongly hold the film together.

BEST SCENES : The night when the Rajbir and friends drink and think of ideas to help the villagers is simply hilarious.

The scene when Hetu(who is kidnapped), runs away from the gang.

When Rajbir and his friends encounter the rival gang on a holy day when both of them have decided not to use weapons and then the car exchange.

The fight in the end with Fauji's men with an extra-ordinary background score.

RATING : *** (one star specially for the realistic portrayal)
