In Gunday, Director Ali Abbas Zafar has made a tremendous improvement in terms of his directorial prowess when compared to his earlier film. His sincere attempt to recreate the charm of 70s is successful but the film fails to impress the audience who expected a solid plot from the film.
Despite being packed with liberal servings of kitsch and colourful quirks from the flamboyant 70s, three good-looking actors and incredible tunes reminiscent of a glorious past, Ali Abbas Zafar’s visual extravaganza ‘Gunday’ doesn’t have enough soul to have us hooked.
Sadly, this one doesn’t get our “thumb-print” but our thumbs-down!
The film, which has been directed Ali Abbas Zafar, has a strong hold on the story line and keeps the audiences glued on their seats till the end.
This film is definitely an entertainer and a must-watch, which will not bore you.
‘Gunday’ is as generic as its name suggests: even that old phrase ‘luchchhe- lafangey’ had more character. In the name of plot, we get a mash-up of many popular blockbusters, several of them belonging to Yashraj, the producers of this one.
In the name of acting, we get pumped up beefcake and one number plumped-lip eye candy. There are a few solid supporting acts, and they are the ones that keep you watching, but they get buried in the sludge. What you get is what you’ve been getting. Over and over again.
