Gunday movie review: Ranveer Singh and Arjun Kapoor’s bromance overshadows the sexy Priyanka Chopra!

This Valentine’s it’s time to celebrate friendship and not just love. In Gunday, we get to see a special bond between Ranveer and Arjun. But we aren’t saying that there’s no love

Ranveer Singh and Arjun Kapoor’s much awaited Gunday has hit the theatres and we must say, these boys know how to entertain. It’s said that behind every successful man, there is a woman. But this saying does not hold true for Gunday, it’s the boys who stand solid behind this entertaining film. To know what we mean, watch the film. Wink, wink! These Gunday guys need no lady or romance to seek your attention; their bromance is more than enough. Of course, Priyanka Chopra has a substantial role in Gunday, but it’s the boys who win our heart.

While Arjun Kapoor plays the hot-headed Bala, Mr Singh plays Bikram, his understanding better half. Right at the start of the film, the younger version of this duo flee Bangladesh ‘coz the angry young lad Bala commits a heinous crime. They arrive in Kolkata and work at a restaurant for living. But not for long, they are kicked out by their owner. With a solid lath on their paapi paith Bikram comes up with a master business plan – looting trains that carry coal and selling it cheaper. Enter the grown up Bikram and Bala in true Bollywood ishtyle! Boy, what an entry it is! The tall dark n’ handsome Bikram and Bala and their brawny bodies will ddefinitely make you drool!

Apart from the hot looking heroes, there are some dhaasu dialogues that make this movie an interesting watch. The notorious and loving duo is always up for challenges. And that’s where you hear the true filmi lines being mouthed, “Agar jigar ke jagah jigar hain aur jigar mein dum hain, toh rok le aake.” It’s delivery of these lines by the actors that make it truly watchable. Ranveer aka Bikram will make you go crazy with his expressions, especially when he says this – “Angootha laga de.”

Enough about these Gundays of Calcutta, who are worshipped by the common man, Irrfan Khan essays ACP Satyajeet Sarkar who wants them locked behind the bars like most 70s films. There’s also a love-story in this bromantic movie. Our Gundays are in love with cabaret dancer Nandita (Priyanka Chopra). Oops! Will it affect their friendship? Will their bromance die ‘coz of this newfound romance? And who will win Nandita’s heart, Bikram or Bala? And will the other one be heartbroken? A lot of questions arise in our mind and most of them are answered in the first half. And it has quite a twist at the interval. The climax is such that you don’t want the movie to stop playing! Hmph!

So, the plot of the film in a nutshell is best described like this – Bikram and Bala are the Gunday, Nandita is their love interest and Satyajeet (Irrfan) wants to catch the wronged heroes. It’s simple but very very interesting. You could call it predictable, but enjoyable overall.

Some dialogues that you can take home with you: ‘Aag ke liye paani ka hona zaroori hain’, ‘Ho aap vardi vale par aapke tevar hain Gundon vale’. And there are many such witty lines in the film, which keep you glued to the screen all throughout. The story is good and so is the music. It’s catchy. Some action scenes are funny. Bikram and Bala totally steal the show and their chemistry is sizzling. We aren’t kidding!

Gunday is about friendship, love, betrayal. Ranveer and Arjun are styled differently – they are quirky and don’t mind flaunting their hot bods, you won’t mind the weird outfits. Priyanka’s closet doesn’t do justice to the era in which the film is set. But then again, why complain, hai na? She’s hot and why should boys have all the attention, right? Ali Abbas Zafar has done a great job with his cast. It’s certainly worth watching ‘coz Gunday isn’t a serious film which makes you leave the theatre with a heavy heart and neither a typical masala entertainer nor ‘the happily ever after’ kinda rom-com. Gunday is different and we love it!

  • ravi

  • Taanya

    Shut up! The movie is gross and disgusting
    I don’t think it would cross even 30 crores. Hasee toh Phasee was much better than gunday.

    • yazz

  • Sidarth Wangneo

    Lets face the fact. Gunday is the crappiest movie of 2014(of course there will be lot of movies that will replace its position in the coming months.) And please don’t compare it with Hasee toh Phasee. That would be an insult to Parineeti’s talent

    • nikhil kumar

      so true pari was awesome i feel she deserves an award

  • Sidarth Wangneo

    Though priyanka and Irfaan did a good job. But then Titanic ko dubne se koi bacha nahi paya tha

  • Ravish

    Every preson have different tast of movies some likes fight & some romantice movies so don’t fight yrr.

      • <3cppd<3

        first u have eventually proved dat u r a dog n second why the hell u replied to my comment!!! r u having depression!! lol
        fyki gunday has a bumper opening of 16.12 crore, the second highest of 2014 after jai ho..check ur facts well hater boy.buahaha
        tashan opening = 4.5 cr
        heroine = 7 cr approx
        agent vinod = 8.5 cr approx
        satyagraha = 10 cr approx
        GTPM = 3.5 cr
        n all these above movies were declared big flops( below average grossers)
        so how can u say dat gunday is flop like tashan(one of the biggest disasters).Gunday is made on budget of about 35 cr n its already recovered its budget with only friday n saturday collections only.Ramleela opening was less than 16.12 cr n was a superhit lol.so stop with the lies nobody believe ur bakwaas..idiot

            stfu u lying bastard u r the one who commented tashan ,bebo’s fans and all that crap everyone has the right to say their opinion and sob is a short form of son of a bitch and u in ur comment accepted the fact that u r a sob i only commented on those posts who didn’t like the movie if u can’t see than ur blind .may be pc’s ass is covering ur eyes u sob i never commented on the people who loved the movie u bitch nd why would i be insecure u jealous cunt it’s you who is jealous i commented on tashan and u thought that i like kareena this clearly shows how much u r jealous of kareena u pig .

          • <3cppd<3

            but i referred to mourn by sob coz im not that lowly degraded like u. stop lying check ur replies well n u shall see dat u did replied to ppl who liked the movie including me,,if u dnt notice it then probably its u who r blind..ur hatred for successful actresses have covered ur eyes then ..ugly brute!!! n fyki why would i be jealous of a QUEEN OF FLOPS..seriously did u really means this!!! WTF!! who is kareina i dnt even knw her..lOl
            but the same applies for u then, ur comments truly shows how u r spreading hate over sme1 u dnt even knw personally..by saying ugly bitch, sleeping with others n so on, what would this imply!! that u love peecee!!! no no it clearly means how much u r jealous of her impeccable success!!! btw if i commented on tashan then y did the tashan comment pinch u soo much as of i commented on urself??
            y did u feel so concerned abt tashan??? r u the director ov the movie??? the answer is no nah then shut up ur fuc*king asshole when that tashan comment had nothing to do with u awful bitch..!!!

          • nikhil kumar

  • aara

    Loved Gunday. Awesome. I

  • milan227

    Watched Gunday. Craptastic story. Starts out great and then pfft. The guys are good. PC is gorgeous if one dimensional, Irfan Khan is good as usual… i wish i could say it was fantastic but no, not really.

  • janet

    Gunday is really entertaining!. the lead actors are worth watching.
    the comments against it are worthless. the same people commenting again and again not to watch it! Some people think others don’t have commonsense?

  • meena

    I loved the movie..it was better than dhoom 3 ..priyanka ranveer arjun trio rocks

  • Sonia

    good, no one likes that greedy wannabe poser anyway

  • xx

    Laro bhen luno

  • rahul

    This is the crappiest site it is clearly biased towards priyanka chopra and deepika even if the movie is a flop they hype the movie. Gunday was one of the worst movie that i ever watched in my life.And stop comparing ranveer and arjun with amithab and dharmendar it is an insult to them

  • Shakuntela

    It was an amazing movie. The best movie of 2014 so far

  • Shakuntela

    BO wise it did really well. People saying it flopped need a reality check. Gori Tere Pyar Mein flopped for example. Gunday is already a hit

  • gunday

    Fucked by seeing comments over here Bastards nonsense

  • gunday

    Gunday maccho hit ok and I m shocked u all fucking all over here why Bastards nonsense rascals fuckking u all idiots

  • gunday

    I m shocked u all fucking all over here why Bastards nonsense rascals fuckking u all idiots

  • Zayan Gang

    I know entertainment matters but this film highlights everything a HORRIBLE film can be…baseless, mindless actions are dull..jokes are lame…and honestly its just lame…very lame and really not entertaining..its just a bunch of random action sequences (defying physics) and some songs trying to make a plot out of a bunch of cutscenes

  • Zayan Gang

    and about acting of those two boys…how much were you paid to write such sweet comments :p

  • Harsh

    this was the shittiest movie I’ve ever seen. these kind of movies are destroying Bollywood…………..

  • Kevin Sunil

    Its just very very saddening to see that this hopeless movie received a 4 star rating.. no story .. bad acting n what no.. instead a beautiful masterpiece like highway gets only 2 stars.. ditto for lootera.. i must say.. u bollywoddlife reviewers suck big time.. im never visiting this biased site again..
    Oh, and by the way, FUCK YOU..
