If drama, bromance, pouty lips and most of all apply-no-brains entertainment is what you are up for, Gunday is for you! If substance and twists to a 1970’s tale that’s been told enough number of times in the 70’s itself is what you are expecting, you are in for some extremely predictable, sometimes non-sensical, and a loud background score for 160 minutes of your time.
Having warned you of that, we think Gunday is not so bad after all (we belong to the 1st category). When was the last time we saw people hooting, whistling and speaking the patent dialogues before the actors, in a very modern theatre with a decent audience? If you weren’t a part of the 70’s generation, then you haven’t witnessed it (we certainly haven’t), and taken in a good spirit, it is fun: D Gunday makes you do that.
Priyanka’s lip job and Arjun baba & Ranveer baba’s metro-sexual love is the highlight we must say. So utterly funny is the movie (it is not their idea though) that a good actor like Irrfan Khan is a waste-of-talent here.
For the timing of its release, its ruling-the-current-silver-screen but yet largely unexploited for their talent actors, a desirable Priyanka Chopra, and some foot-tapping music the movie will do decently well, despite the hopelessness of its content!
In the end, we want to sign off saying, ‘Beta agar jigar ki jagah jigar hai, aur jigar mein dum hai, toh ek baar toh dekh hi aa yeh picture’!!
