The film Gunday under the Yasraj Films banner kicks-off with the plot of the making of Bangladesh. Along with the violence and the horror of the early 70s prevalent in Bengal, the film brings in the story set during the formation of the new country. It is about two young boys who have suffered losses and are left with themselves and moved into Calcutta as refugees.
Beginning with History and set in the backdrop of Calcutta, the movie revolves around two main characters Bikram and Bala, who live in this city. The story moves into the 80s when these boys grow up into young men and dominate the world of crime.
Bikram and Bala get annoyed and irritated, when they are called as Bangladeshi refugees, beat up these people who utter such words to them.
The writer and director of this film Ali Abbas Zafar, has little to give to the audience.
Ranveer Singh and Arjun Kapoor, the two heroes are seen growing up from stealing coal from the train wagons to becoming the biggest coal mafia of Calcutta. They have tried to give their best.
Then there is Priyanka Chopra as Nandita appears as a cabaret dancer. The two friends fall for her and end-up fighting with each other. Priyanka Chopra’s character is not very strong but good.
Irfan Khan plays the role of a police inspector and is after the Gunday.
The picture is a masala Bollywood film with a weak plot and depiction on the screen.
The music score just goes with the story, not very appealing.
The film can be watched if you have patience and lots of time to spare on a topic that is very weak.
