From Gandhigiri Sanjay Dutt turns to POLICEGIRI

By Enkayaar, Glamsham Editorial

Cinema indeed, if it is done in a nice manner is able to touch the chord of the audience somewhere and the character played, if is able to identify and addressed the issues with which the common man is waging a losing battle, then the character attains a cult figure and it becomes larger than life. The same happened with Sanjay Dutt when he played the character in LAGE RAHO MUNNABHAI which changed the manner in which the father of the nation's thoughts and ideas are to be implemented, and brought into relief a new lexicon Gandhigiri. Sanjay Dutt became its living epitome.

As a matter of fact when he was supposed to be sent back to jail again the effect that he had created and the way that he had brought into relief Gandhigiri was put forward to underline that he had displayed good behavior and character and therefore a lenient view need to be taken against him.

Now that he is back behind the bars, and his POLICEGIRI is going to be released shortly, indeed this was the last film whose shooting and dubbing Sanjay Dutt completed before going back to the jails, one wonders whether POLICEGIRI would be the new term that would come into the lexicon of the country and whether it would mean initiating the process of police reform in the country and provide a window of opportunity to the public to change the perspective associated with Police and to view them in a different light.

There could be a view that while Gandhigiri as a subject had an element of newness to it so it caught the imagination of the public and gained such immense popularity, Hindi cinema has been rather introspective about the institution of Police and what is new that POLICEGIRI would be able to do.

Well, for one, Sanjay Dutt has found a new style of comedy which endears the audience and when it comes in association with the institution of Police, one should be sure that something new would be on offer. Besides, amongst the present crop of actors, it is Salman Khan who has unveiled an aspect of police which has become a hit with the public, but still there are quite a lot of more options to be explored.

Therefore POLICEGIRI should be awaited with a sense of anticipation as who knows the police system could receive a shot in the arm through cinema which it has not caught in the recent times.
