The story revolves around two families, whose patriarch killed each other many years ago. Their respective sons, Jaswinder Randhawa and Balwinder Sandhu, are sworn enemies. Jaswinder has been in hiding in London, whereas Balwinder is waiting for his return in Punjab so he can avenge the death of his father.In the present day, Jassi Randhawa (Ajay Devgan) is an unemployed good-for-nothing man who receives a letter from the Punjab government about buying his property in Punjab. To sell the property, Jassi leaves for Punjab.
On the train, he meets and falls in love with Sukhmeet (Sonakshi Sinha). In Punjab, Jassi accidentally meets Billu (Sanjay Dutt) and, seeing he is new to the area, Billu invites Jassi to his home, where he treats Jassi like a god. There, Jassi realises that Billu is Sukhmeets brother. Soon enough, it is revealed that Billu is Balwinder Singh and Jassi is short for Jaswinder. However, Billus family has to follow one Punjabi rule: A guest in the house should never be harmed.
Now, Billu must wait for Jassi to leave the house to kill him. Jassi learns about it and comes up with a hilarious plan to foil Billus shenanigans.Son of Sardaar received mixed to negative reviews. Taran Adarsh of Bollywood Hungama gave it a score of 4 out of 5 stars and said Son of Sardaar is for lovers of hardcore masala movies. If you liked Wanted, Dabangg and Rowdy Rathore, chances are you will relish Son of Sardaar as well.
The North Indian audiences in particular and those residing abroad will be simply delighted by this chatpata, masaledaar fare. Gayatri Sankar of Zee News gave it 3 out of 5 stars while commenting Certain portions are a bit of a drag, but the comic sequences will make up for the monotony. The cast has put up a good show. Overall, SOS is worth a watch, a complete family entertainer. Rediff gave 2 out of 5 and stated Son of Sardaar has a lot for the masses but it lacks a good story.
Filmfare gave 2 out of 5 stars and stated Comedy is more than just gags and slapstick. Sadly SOS gets it wrong. Rajeev Masand of CNN-IBN gave 2 out of 5 stars and stated Son of Sardaar is only sporadically entertaining, and peddles the same tired stereotypes of Punjab and Sikhs. A cameo by Salman Khan, sadly, doesn't make up for the film's many flaws. Hindustan Times gave the film 2 out of 5 stars, describing it as exhausting, painfully loud and way too long, with too few laughs, while the Telegraph stated that it was run-of-the-mill, but that it could be a guilty pleasure for some viewers.
Like the Hindustan Times, IBNLive gave the movie 2 out of 5, with a slightly lower grade coming from Saibal Chatterjee of NDTV, who rated the film 1.5 out 5, stated that it was A tangled mess that has no way of working its way around the sloppy screenplay. The Hindu stated that there's nothing more torturous than watching an unfunny film that's trying so hard to be funny.
