Gunday is an upcoming action romantic film from Yash Raj Productions, which is being written & directed by Ali Abbas Zafar. Film is set in the 1970s in Bengal, which shows Bikram (Ranveer Singh) and Bala (Arjun Kapoor) as best friends cum gangsters.They falls in love with the same girl named Nandita (Priyanka Chopra) without any controversial issues between them for the same. Gunday has set up a good ambience of the 70’s but its plot seems to be weak. Irfan Khan has character of cop who tries to control these gangsters but his character doesn’t seems to be worthy opponent of Bikram and Bala.
The plot seems to be quiet straight forward with absolutely nothing new, unique and fresh. Other than the good ambience and basic set up of 70s, Gunday seems to be overall an average watch. Narration in the trailer by Irfan Khan seems to be good but his character seems to be underwritten. One of the good dialogues from the trailer “Pistool ki goli aur laudiya ki boli jab chalti hai toh jaan dono mein hi khatre mein hoti hai”.
Gunday is set to release on valentine day i.e. 14th February 2014. Gunday will also be released in Bengali; the songs of the bengali by Bappi Lahiri. Film is being inspired from the story of two small thieves involved in coal mafia of the same time. Ranveer Singh seems to be more confident and mature actor in the trailer from Arjun Kapoor. Ranveer Singh is looking physical fit as well from Arjun Kapoor. Overall, I would say that nothing much can be expected from the same film and can be given a miss.
Verdict: - Above Average
