Well, Bhatt’s are definitely in the form, with two successful movies last year – Zeher & Kalyug, this year too they are giving their best. No doubt Gangster is one of the best made gangsta movies till date. But wait, its not the gun powder and bloodbath which shines the movie, but its the sensible script, acid dialogues and its razor sharp execution that makes this movie par above than its contemprories.
Cast: Emraan Hashmi, Shiney Ahuja, Kangna Ranaut
It is not just heart, it also Seoul. The crowded lanes and the festive festering decadent setting add considerably to the intensity level of this high-pitched drama of love passion, jealousy, sacrifice and atonement.
Gangster is not really a film about homicidal crime. Nor is it a film that dwells stylishly on the glossy exteriors of the high life. It focuses on the stark interiors of hearts that ruthlessly seek love in relentlessly self-serving places.
In what is possibly the toughest role written for a female newcomer Kangna stumbles across a minefield of volatile emotions.
Never shy of exposing the inner-most contours of a lacerated heart and soul, writer Mahesh Bhatt gives us a love triangle between a girl on the brink Simran (Kangna), her gangster-lover (Shiney Ahuja) and the man (Emraan Hashmi) who comes into her life to put balm on her frayed nerves.
Director Anurag Basu captures the desperate anxieties of the three-way passion-play with high-voltage sequences each done in lush untried colours of life’s most complicated trajectory.
There is a curvaceous feeling to every swing and swerve of this dramatically done plot.
