Lessons of life and business from SON OF SARDAAR

By Enkayaar, Glamsham Editorial

SON OF SARDAAR has been able to create box office history and is slowly inching towards the new elite club of Hindi cinema the 100 crore club. SON OF SARDAAR has interesting lessons for life to offer which the fans should imbibe from cinema, and here are few of those lessons of life that one can take back home after having watched the film:

Presence of Mind helps one tide over situations:

Ajay Devgn after having landed in his native place comes to realise that his life is saved till he is inside the house, and he uses his presence of mind in various situations to tide over the eventuality and when he has to face it there also he applies his presence of mind to fight for his rights as he did in the climax.

Honoor is not what one should fight for, but love is what one should embrace:

Revenge is not one should aspire for in life and keep on burning in it, destroying the family relations as well, as it was with the case with the character of Sanjay Dutt who did not consummate his marriage with Juhi Chawla, but one should be magnanimous enough to forgive and forget as it was done by the character played by Sonakshi Sinha who forgave the son of the killer of his father and rather married him. To be precise one should live in the moment not in the past or the future.

A lady of the house is the binding force and she needs to be respected:

Character played by Tanuja in the film, who selectively suffers from amnesia was with the objective to see to it that the family strives to forget whatever bad blood that has happened in the past and try to initiate a new beginning. As a matter of fact, the way in which female have been given place of prominence in the film underlines the maxim that a family can rise to the occasion when the lady of the house is given recognition.

One should be proud about one's identity and never allow it to be denigrated:

Sikhs have been portrayed as jolly character, but Ajay Devgn underlines the fact that when one touches the pagri , which defines the identity of Sikhs, one has to pay the price, and he did it twice in the film, one in the opening sequence and the other time at the climax.

Atithee Devo bhav or guest is the god:

Indeed it has been the defining motif that has set the tone for the film. Ajay Devgn comes to realize that as long as he is inside the hallowed precincts of the house, nobody can touch him, but once he is out he is a trophy to be killed. He is treated royally while being in the house, as also the other character who comes to buy the land in Sanjay Dutt's village. As a matter of fact such is the thought ingrained in our psyche about treating our guests as gods that we are ready to swallow all kinds of insults, as Sanjay Dutt did, but he took the revenge once the guest was out of house, and it happened with Ajay Devgn as well.
