About the Movie
When they ran to save their lives for the first time, they were mere 12-year-old boys, and the world called them 'refugees'. The war of 1971 gave birth to a new country - Bangladesh. It also gave birth to two young orphans - Bikram and Bala. They witnessed the war and its aftermath, where the world tried to trample over them. Fighting for survival, they clung to each other and escaped to Calcutta. Before they knew the world, they knew each other. Such was their bond, such was their friendship. Each time they sought new beginnings, each time they would rise, the world would crush them down. So, they fought again... and again. Together they were unbeatable, unstoppable and inseparable. In the years that passed, Bikram and Bala, became Calcutta's most loved, most reckless, most fearless and most powerful GUNDAY! They had everything, but one fine day, Nandita, the most beautiful cabaret dancer, walked into their lives, and they lost everything to her. Their murky world turned magical and colorful, and they fell head over heels in love with her. But that was only a blissful lull before an impending storm. ACP Satyajeet Sarkar, the right for every wrong, a law for every outlaw, arrives as a counter force for Bikram and Bala. What follows is the most sensational story ever told.

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: "Gunday," directed by Ali Abbas Zafar, may be preposterous, but it's rarely dull. And when Mr. Khan and Ms. Chopra are on screen it's something more. It's downright enjoyable.
Fresh: What makes "Gunday" work and pulls us along is the great skill and obvious affection with which these familiar elements have been deployed.
Fresh: Viewers with increasing concerns that Bollywood's recent action/comedies are far too reliant on tiresome conventions will see this as further proof; for those simply looking for escapism of the highest order, this romp should do just fine.
