Welcome To Sajjanpur Reviews

A Rural Entertainer!
Sep 21, 2008 04:58 PM Read
Shyam Benegal has been one of the most able filmmakers of Indian Cinema who has made some of the finest films in the past. All his films dealt with serious, historic or hard hitting issues. So it came as a surprise when he announced a comic flick Welcome To Sajjanpur a year back! However, Shyam ...Read More

A letter writer, a must in our villages tickles the funny bone in the movie. The story unfolds with a man disoriented by life and competition, finding solace in writing letters for others. Although, it does not give him enough for his livelihood, it does satisfy his passion to write. Shreyas ...Read More

Sajjanpur is a small remote village of India, where you will get different types of characters, that you can imagine of. Hmm… just listen to the song, “Sitaram Sitaram…Chitti aayi na paatri aayi…aaya naa telegram re…” Let us first introduce you to Mahadev. After his graduation, he has got no job...Read More

The star cast of  Welcome to Sajjanpur might not at first give the star crazy movie viewers an urge to watch it in their first thought but considering the name Shyam Benegal, remembering the brilliant performance of Shreyas Talpade in Iqbal and coming across the name Amrita Rao may g...Read More

Well this movie is quiet unusual in this era of remixed movies or movies with same old action or fiction. So in fact this film acts as a soothing movie with really sum sort of paisa wasool feelings along with multiple question mark which our real india actually faces. This film had pointed ou...Read More

Some movies are just BIG. Some movies are just fun and then some movies are just Great Stories. Welcome to Sajjanpur falls in the fine storytelling category. The movie has a great simple plot that is engrossing and very interesting. Great performances by Shreyas Talpade and the 'awesome' UP a...Read More

Released on 19th sept, 2008. The movie is completely a flop one. The movie tells how a person taught the poor villegers when there was no education available at that time and how they fought against the harsh things happening to them. The movie should have been release in the 19th century ...Read More

A tale of one village aka Sajjanpur
Oct 01, 2008 03:09 PM Read
Earlier this village was called “Durjanpur”, but most of the people were saintly. Like Bombay became Mumbai, Calcutta became Kolkatta, Madras became Chennai, “Durjanpur” has been re-christened to “Sajjanpur”. But such is the irony of life, that now the number of sajjan’s has drastically fallen. ...Read More

This movie really deserves a applause, when you compare it against movies it comeptes wiht. In the age of item numbers, bit banners, famous film stars and huge star cast, this movie really stands tall and serves you a toast. This movie is about a village named Sajjanpur, where Shreyas is a le...Read More

That is the original title of "welcome to sajjanpur" seen on the certificate..why was it changed??? I think  the original title would have been somewhat indicative of the plot...PLOT??? failed to get the story actually...honestly speaking though the trailers were mediocore but just went to ...Read More

Are you the one who is ready to look beyond what is obvious?  Are you the one who is ready to permit your imagination to fly often?   Are you angry at the state of things happening in India?   Do you think at least some times that the media is not doing the right job and giving biased reports?  ...Read More

Sajjanpur: villages are in!!!
Sep 27, 2008 03:15 AM Read
When you watch a movie without watching its promotional trailers, it leaves no scope to form an opinion and you just see the star cast and the title. So, there is nothing like expectations building up. And now for the movie, initially you are reminded of Lagaan when you see the village settings....Read More

On the name of good cinema this year many films have been churned out.

This is not a Comedy! But about Fine Storytelling!

For a movie maker of the caliber of Shayam Benegal is, it goes without saying with his invite to Sajjanpur comes along a bouquet of expectations. The only other movie of his that I’ve seen is Zubaidaa and I was amazed at his story telling quality! This time, the setting is rustic with characters...Read More

Bhago from Sajjanpur
Sep 23, 2008 12:22 PM Read
Well lots of review already talk about the movie & the similarity to the old Malgudi Days!!! Malgudi Days was certainly far better. Though WTS also touches the vibes of the small town village. I can certainly appreciate Benegal's view point in going through this film from the eye of the "writ...Read More

Not that welcoming :-(

I dont know what came to the director's mind who thought of making this flick and thought it would work...I mean second day of release and the theatre was empty : (  that itself gave me an indication how much people are going to appreciate this concept. Movie has a promising start , for sure ...Read More

Sajjanpur Days
Sep 22, 2008 12:11 PM Read
When the promos of this film first came out, one got the feeling that this would be different from the run-of-the-mill kind of productions being churned out by our own Bollywood every Friday. A modest setting, a bunch of interesting, colourful characters with that rustic awkwardness and intro...Read More
