The film also depicts the reality of life - innocence and blind faith mostly push a person into trouble - many a times - like their love for Nandita (Priyanka Chopra) and trust in Himanshu (Anant Sharma) led them to face many downs in their lives.
- When Nandita stirs Bala's conscience saying that he could never win her as he was very different from Bikram and as she moves out, there is a mirror in front of Bala reflecting his image. The song Saiyaan has heart touching lyrics and follows right after.
- This fact reflecting on their attitude is depicted very well right from their childhood when they find a way out to feed themselves.
The crack slowly starts appearing in the comrades' relations...
When Bala burns down Bikram's share of factories in a fit of rage...
And Bikram's face from their joint portrait gets burnt down as well.
- Bikram's signature 'अंगूठा लगवा ले!' is positioned at the right instances which lays appropriate weight to the scene.
Those of my readers who would have watched the movie would be perfectly able to recall when, why and in which circumstances.
To those who haven't, I would not like to break the suspense.
One line of advice - 'Go Watch It!'
- 'किस्मत कि एक खूबी है - कि वो पलटती है - और बहुत जल्दी पलटती है!' - Says ACP Satyajit Sarkar (Irrfan Khan) - pointing to the crux of the web he had woven to end B & B's regime!
The most important parallel in the movie is drawn between instances from Ramayana and stills from the film.
Nandita compares herself to Sita and Bikram to Ram and Bala abducts him saying - 'सीता हरण तो आप भूल ही गईं मैडम!'
Also, when in the climax, both the friends unite, symbolizing 'भरत मिलाप'.
All in all, Gunday is a gem from the house of YRF and deserves a 3.5 Stars from my side!
Looking forward to your agreements to my opinions and deviations from it, as may be the case.
Gunday Is A Must Watch, I Opine!
