Director: Mazhar Khan
Starring: Nana Patekar, Jackie Shroff, Kumar Gaurav
Released: April 14, 2000


Gang has quite a leading cast of stars: Jackie Shroff, Nana Patekar, Kumar Gaurav, and Javed Jafrey. It deals with four ambitious no-names from various decadent backgrounds trying to strike it rich and famous (how else?) by committing crimes for cash that eventually lead to much grander and dangerous capers. Gangu (Jackie Shroff), Abdul (Nana Patekar), Nihal (Kumar Gaurav), Gary (Javed Jafrey), Gangu's lover Sanam (Juhi Chawla), Nihal's girlfriend Divya (Ektaa), Gangu's mother and Gary's sister are all one big family. After the murder of Gangu's mother and Gary's sister, the gang of four go on a bloody crusade as they attempt to avenge the death of their loved ones. The film chronicles the rise and fall of these men, ending with a violent and gory climax. Gang is a film with the same moral presented by Satya, Parinda, and Vaastav, it shows that life in the Underworld eventually leads to dispair and tragedy. The one difference between otehr movies and Gang is that Gang is slightly more commercial than these other films.

The film brought out excellent performances from Jackie Shroff, Kumar Gaurav, Nana Patekar, and Javed Jafrey. Juhi's role is small but effective. The entire cast should be commended on a very well made film. The movie itself, like always, could have been better but since I am growing increasingly comfortable with the mediocrity of Bollywood films, I liked Gang and you'll probably like it too. Its a film that is good purely for entertainment purposes only.

1 out of 5 bindis - Its pretty Bad
