  • Waste of time and money by 1

    The movie was probably aimed at being on of those a masala flicks with bromance, romance, song sequences, tragic background and what not. But half an hour into the movie and it all went for a toss due to a very very weak script. The on screen appearances of the actors was good but it wasn't really backed by any actual acting.The dialogues were over cheesy and ludicrous in all aspects. Probably Priyanka Chopra was the only watchable element of the movie (or may be I am being biased).

    Frankly an hour into the movie and i really felt like leaving (I don't know why i didn't). Trust me guys, its one of those movies which is meant to be forgotten and if you haven't watched it and are planning to, then forget the time and money that you are going to waste on this and just save yourself from the agony that might scar you.

    The only way this movie could be watchable is with a group of friends who are making fun of everything possible whilst the movie plays.

  • Worst movie and historically appropriate by 1

    One of the worst movie of recent times, with very rubbish historic info. Scriptwriter, director and production should be ashamed to so laughable scripts. How come they make this comedy and give all wrong information to public.

    You should not pay for this garbage and also should not waste your valuable time.

    This film was not only pathetically terrible, but also a story line that made no sense. The usual sarcastic one liners fell flat.

    I have to give this at least 1 star only cause I'm not allowed to give it less.

  • This film has started disaster in Bangladesh by 1

    I would like to introduce myself as one of the Bangladeshi movie lovers. Probably Gunday is getting great response in India. But this film has started disaster in Bangladesh. Does the director understand that this project has humiliated the Bangladeshis? Hopefully the mistakes were done unintentionally. Let's have a look at the mistakes done this film.

    At the very beginning of your film,they are telling the viewers that it was an India-Pakistan war happened in 1971. I think their script writer was plastered while writing the script. If their information happens to be correct,what were our freedom fighters doing then? India joined the war on 3rd of December 1971. And the war started on 25th of March the same year. India didn't give birth to Bangladesh,rather the bloodshed of our 3 million martyrs did. Director can not but correct the mistake and apologize to us.

    2.The story of the film humiliates us on several scenes. they showed that people of Bangladesh were involved in various criminal activities during the liberation war. Two lads of our country become thief and vicious criminal going to your land in their film. It's tremendously humiliating for us (All Bangladeshis).

    3.According this story,Bangladeshis consider themselves Indian. How humorous! They can do anything to get Indian citizenship. Extremely humorous!

  • Bollywood masala action film. Its not based on facts ! by 1

    Its making money and thats the headline. Just a spoiled effort. Action and over-dramatic dialogues are its USP. Rest is just another Bollywood weekend movie.Bangladesh liberation war was modified as Indo-Pak war without giving proper exposure to facts. Bangladesh was born from the war between India and Pakistan ! Thats the terrible blunder. So any person who knows the facts will be disappointed. As we know from the previous review Sheikh Mujibur Rahman who declared the independence of Bangladesh in 26 March, 1971 and after that the war began between East and West Pakistan. East Pakistan later became Bangladesh, a sovereign state. Along with 90000 soldiers Pakistan army surrendered to the commander in chief of India and Bangladesh joint forces.The movie violated the sovereign feeling of Bangladeshi peoples. I'd rather prefer to watch "The Busturd Child" (2013) Hindi drama film directed by Mrityunjay Devvrat showing and emphasizing the real events that took place during 70's.

  • Poor script reflecting stupidity of ignorant director and writer by 1

    Calcutta later Kolkata historically such a rich and old city was never known for only a bridge and gangster! It was the capital of the British India and known for many fine historical establishments; Fort William,Victoria Memorial,Howrah Bridge,Marble Palace, Dakesshar Temple are few examples of it! And if for great people of course for Tagore and Bose not some gangster!

    And when it comes to the history of Bangladesh; Bangladeshis were fighting this war since the beginning of the year 1971 and India got involved in December 1971. In history it is written as Indian army fought along side the Bengali freedom fighters.

    It is an utter nonsense and stupidity to portray such false impression of this great liberation war as an India-Pakistan war!

    From this perspective I review this movie as a very poor script movie.
